Before launching its newest smartphone lineup which consists the likes of the new Z5 Pro GT, Z5s and S5 Pro GT, Lenovo introduced a new line of notebooks under its ThinkPad range. The new devices are labelled as the ThinkPad L390 and ThinkPad L390 Yoga which now debut with Intel’s latest Whiskey Lake processors and are available for a starting price of $659 (approx. Rs 47,000).
The ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga both come with 13.3-inch FHD displays but it’s the convertible Yoga model which features additional support for touch control and Active Pen. Both devices carry the latest 8th Gen Intel Whiskey Lake processors and can be configured to up to 32GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
While the L390 feature Intel’s HD Graphics for graphics processing, the L390 Yoga utilises the Intel UHD 620 GPU. The Yoga, however, loses its portable form factor due to its flexible nature and thus weighs in at 1.58 kg. The regular ThinkPad L390 notebook weighs only 1.45 and measures only 0.7-inch on the thickest side.
The differences don’t stop there as the convertible packs in a battery that’s expected to last for around 12 hours, while the L390 provides users with a 14-hour battery. Both laptops, however, come with Lenovo’s ThinkShield security features, a touch fingerprint reader an IR camera and a Windows Hello-certified front-facing depth camera. The machines run on Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro OS from Microsoft.
The Lenovo ThinkPad L390 and Lenovo ThinkPad L390 Yoga are available in black or silver for starting prices of $659 (approx. Rs 47,000) and $889 (approx. Rs 62,700) respectively.
