Lenovo ThinkBook launched in South Africa

Lenovo South Africa has launched the new ThinkBook range in South Africa.

“ThinkBook is intended to shift SMB customers away from consumer-oriented devices,” said Matej Misturik, Commercial Product Manager for ThinkPad for the EMEA region.

Misturik said that Lenovo prioritised creating a device that also appeals to younger generations while still offering them everything they need in terms of performance.

“When you are an entrepreneur, freelancer, or another job that isn’t a nine-to-five, your expectation of the device is that it looks good,” said Misturik.

He added that the primary difference between the ThinkPad and the ThinkBook is that the ThinkPad has a variety of high-end security and manageability features that the ThinkBook market doesn’t require – allowing Lenovo to offer devices that offer better value to this market.

ThinkBook range

The Lenovo ThinkBook range in South Africa comprises four devices – the ThinkBook 13s, 14, 15, and Plus.

The ThinkBook 13s is the smallest of these devices, and sports up to an 8th-generation Intel Core processor, M.2 storage, and a fingerprint reader.

The 14-inch and 15-inch ThinkBooks have larger displays and offer up to a 10th-generation i7 processor.

Both of these devices also offer a “magic port”, which allows users to insert a USB dongle – for a keyboard or a mouse, for example  – without it jutting out the side of laptop.
