Video: The ThinkPad is 25 and Lenovo is celebrating

Lenovo has revealed pricing and some specs for its 2018 enterprise laptops in the ThinkPad X, ThinkPad T, and ThinkPad L series.

The company’s 2018 Windows 10 laptop lineup introduces slimmer and lighter designs that all come with Intel’s 8th generation Core processors and new physical webcam shutters, which can keep snoops out without resorting to ugly tape or torn Post-it notes.

The laptops also bring broader support for facial recognition in Windows Hello with IR cameras, USB Type-C power adapters, and a new slide-to-connect docking system designed to work with 12-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch ThinkPad laptops. All the laptops will be available in the first quarter.
