Lenovo Launches New AMD only Ultraportable ThinkPads

Lenovo is launching a new range of ThinkPads with AMD. The ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 result from an exclusive collaboration between Lenovo and AMD. The Z13 can be specced with a custom AMD Ryzen 7 Pro chip that has been designed to maximize battery life and performance when you’re trapped inside an endless Zoom, or Microsoft Teams, call.

Sleeker-looking than your average X1 ThinkPad, the Z-series comes with 16:10 displays and ultra-narrow bezels paired with an FHD webcam. The camera sits in a lozenge-shaped mount that doubles as the lip you use to open up the machine, setting it apart from your standard ultraportable.The machines ship with a 120mm haptic ForcePad and, of course, the red TrackPoint, which can now be double-clicked to open up a shortcut menu to control your webcam and microphone settings.

These machines are with a 2.8K OLED display on the 13.3-inch model and a 4K OLED on its bigger sibling. Lenovo base model Z13 comes with the Ryzen Pro U-Series, or the aforementioned custom Ryzen Pro, while the Z16 ships with a Ryzen Pro H series. AMD’s new 6000 series mobile chips, both of these machines come with Microsoft’s Pluton security processor to make Windows 11 machines more secure.

The larger model  gets the ability to come with either integrated or discrete Radeon graphics, depending on your need and budget.Both of these models will be available in May 2022, with the Z13’s base model priced at $1,549, while the bigger model will set you back no less than $2,099.
