Lenovo has refreshed some of its business-minded ThinkPad laptops and ThinkPad Yoga 2-in-1s with Intel’s refreshed 8th Gen ‘Whiskey Lake’ mobile processors. The models receiving the updates fall into the affordable mainstream ThinkPad L-series, aimed at price-sensitive business users who aren’t looking for the slimmest or lightest machines, but who value the reliability and security features of classic ThinkPads. Lenovo says these machines are aimed at new-age workers who need mobility and the flexibility to be creative anywhere.
The new ThinkPad L390 and ThinkPad L390 Yoga both feature 13.3-inch anti-glare full-HD touchscreens and Lenovo’s trademark ThinkPad keyboard. Both will be available in black and silver. They are fairly straightforward upgrades of the ThinkPad L380 and ThinkPad L380 Yoga respectively, with the latest generation of Intel processors. Both support Lenovo’s ThinkShield security services including fingerprint readers and TPM 2.0 chips for secure remote corporate management.
