Lenovo’s ThinkPad T-series are arguably one of the most popular business-class notebooks combining performance and utility. Today, Lenovo introduced its new ThinkPad T14, T14s, and T15 laptops featuring the latest processors from AMD and Intel. Lenovo’s new machines are the first laptops to be announced to have AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Pro-series mobile processors.
The new ThinkPads come in traditional black or silver chassis that pack a 14-inch or a 15.6-inch Full-HD or Ultra-HD display. The most advanced versions feature IPS screens with 500 nits brightness and Dolby Vision HDR support. To complete the multimedia experience, the PCs will come with a Dolby Audio-badged speaker system. The T14s and the T14 are 17.2 and 17.9 mm thick, whereas the T15 has a 19.1 mm z-height.
At the heart of the new ThinkPad laptops are AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Pro CPUs or Intel’s 10th Generation Core processors (some are with vPro technology) paired with up 48 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM as well as up to 2 TB of SSD storage. Premium variants of the ThinkPad T14 and T15 machines will feature NVIDIA’s GeForce MX 330 GPU with 2 GB of memory, whereas the slimmer T14s will rely on Intel’s integrated graphics.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the new ThinkPads feature Wi-Fi 6, Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports and all the other things you come to expect from a 2020 laptop. Advanced versions of the laptops will come with a 4G/LTE CAT16/CAT9 modems.
The new ThinkPad T will be available in Q2 starting at $849 for a 14-inch model, $1029 for a slimmer 14s version as well as $1079 for a 15.6-inch model.

Qasar - Sunday, March 1, 2020 - linkwow.. he must be butt hurt about the truth, says he is ignoring it.. but STILL replies, how is that ignoring it ?
love how some people say how this site is paid by companies to review products, and how bias it is, but still come here to complain about it. if they hate it that much, why do they still come here ?
danjw - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkThat isn't one of there feature grids, it is from Lenovo. I expect that Lenovo only released one for Intel. From another comment they may not offer all the options for Ryzen for a few months yet.
trickynick - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkWho ever designed the keyboard on these things needs to get the sack.
Having the 'Fn' button in the corner instead of 'Ctrl' was a terrible idea and is extremely frustrating.
0iron - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkI wish I could upvote your comment! On a positive side, it have dedicated PgUp/PgDn key.
panzersharkcat - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkYou can flip them in Vantage. I don’t, though, because I actually prefer it the way Lenovo does it. There’s a reason Lenovo kept that from the IBM days. People use CTRL a lot more than FN. By flipping them and making CTRL bigger, it shortens the distance for your pinky finger to hit CTRL. Try CTRL S and FN S on a regular laptop keyboard. It’s a lot easier hitting FN S, which is why IBM put CTRL where FN is on most other laptops.
Dug - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - linkYou can switch it in BIOS. But the shorter distance for finger is actually nicer once you get used to it.
timattrn - Tuesday, February 25, 2020 - linkThe integrated graphics of the AMD4000 Pro outperform the Iris Pro graphics. So if the intel CPUs don't have iris pro, this means that the AMD option is quite a step up from the intel option (without nvidia of course). It is confusing to understand which 10th gen CPUs get the iris pro graphics, but I think so far only low voltage CPUs do?
