Lenovo Announces New Hybrid Work Solutions Ahead of CES

In addition to a new generation of ThinkPad X1-series laptops, Lenovo also announced complementary displays and other peripherals targeting hybrid work scenarios for 2023.

“As ThinkPad surpasses 30 years, the brand’s evolution continues to set benchmarks for durability, productivity, performance, and user experience,” the company noted. “Entering a new era of computing dominated by a need for a more sustainable future, ThinkPad turns its focus toward hardware and software design and engineering to support Lenovo’s net-zero vision.”

Here’s what’s coming in 2023:
