Lenovo’s intelligent devices portfolio for 2020 includes an emphasis on the types of capabilities that many workers are looking for right now, whether they’re working remotely or in the office—such as portability, performance and collaboration. The lineup ranges from notebooks to desktops to displays, and highlights the key areas of innovation that Lenovo has been focusing on, such as with the ThinkPad X1 Fold--the first mainstream foldable PC to hit the market. Also included in our roundup are unique devices such as the lightest ThinkPad to date (the ThinkPad X1 Nano), a desktop PC made for edge computing (the ThinkCentre M75n IoT) and a device that’s dedicated for Microsoft Teams meetings (the ThinkSmart View).

What follows are eight key devices to know about from Lenovo’s Intelligent Devices Group portfolio for 2020.

ThinkPad X1 Carbon, Eighth Generation

As Lenovo’s flagship ThinkPad, the latest X1 Carbon gets some key upgrades that business users will appreciate. A new display option offers the Privacy Guard integrated privacy screen and high brightness, up to 500 nits, along with a touch screen. The eighth-generation X1 Carbon also offers an enhanced keyboard, with the inclusion of keys for unified communications. Perhaps the most stunning quality remains its portability, with the notebook weighing in at just 2.4 pounds. That makes the 14-inch X1 Carbon notably lighter even than other top-level notebooks that have smaller display sizes.
