Lenovo is in the market for a new flagship laptop to compete with Apple’s MacBook Pro, but the company is in a race against time.
Lenovo has spent the past year or so trying to convince consumers that its ThinkPad X240t is a worthy replacement for Apple’s Mac Pro, and it’s not the only company to try.
The ThinkPad is already in wide use at Lenovo’s own retail stores, and we’ve seen similar offerings in other countries.
We saw Lenovo sell an older ThinkPad that used an Intel Core i5-4300U processor, a cheaper Intel Core m3-4690U chip, and a higher-end Core i7-4790U chip in October.
Lenovo also recently announced that it will be launching its Thinkpad X300 laptop with a Core i3 processor.
But the company has been trying to sell its own laptops since early 2016, when it launched its ThinkX360, a budget ultrabook.
The company did launch a version of the ThinkX 360 with a higher Core i6-4670U processor and a more powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics card, but that was followed by the ThinkPad 13, which uses an Intel Haswell Core i9-4770M processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 730M graphics.
Lenova hasn’t gone that far, but it did release its X250 and X270 laptops in the second half of 2016, and they are well received.
The Lenovo X250t is the company’s flagship model, with a 13.3-inch 1080p display, an Nvidia GeForce 645M GPU, and 16GB of RAM.
The X270t is also a 13-inch laptop with an Intel Celeron N2950 quad-core processor, an Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU, 8GB of memory, and an Nvidia GTX 1050M GPU.
Lenovo’s X250 laptops cost $1,199, while the X270s are available for $1; both are available in 13.5-inch and 15.6-inch configurations.
We’ve seen Lenovo sell its Thinkx360s in the U.S. and Europe, but not the U of L campus.
Leno also has the X250s and X240s in its U.K. store, but no longer sells the X260t and X280t.
The last ThinkX products in the United Kingdom were the Think X360 and ThinkX380 laptops in April, and the X200t, X270, and X300 laptops were launched in the same months.
Lenzo’s U.N. CES 2016 launch lineup included a few laptops with Intel Core M processors and more expensive Nvidia graphics cards.
The first ThinkX370 was announced in October, and Lenovo has since released the Thinkx400 and the Thinkxx 380 laptops.
The new X250, X280, and Y300 models are all available in the UK, while Thinkx370 models are available elsewhere.
Lenzovo also has a new Think X300 notebook that costs $1.4, which is cheaper than the Thinkpad 13 and X250 models.
Lenovo hasn’t announced any pricing details on the X300, but you can expect it to be available in January, though the company won’t release a price until February.
Lenotto’s ThinkX300 and Thinkx350 laptops both have 13.1-inch, 1920×1080 display panels, and Intel Celermax CPUs.
The notebooks come with 16GB and 64GB of onboard storage, and there are two 2TB SSDs and one 128GB SSD.
The notebook has an Intel integrated graphics chip, but Lenovo says it supports Thunderbolt 3.
Lenoton announced a $100 price cut for the ThinkPads, but we haven’t seen pricing details released yet.
