4th March 2022 A more sustainable ThinkPad

Take a look at the new, planet- and user- friendly ThinkPad Z Series

Here at Exertis, we aim to always be mindful of our impact on the environment. Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important part of many companies’ operations. From planet-friendly packaging, to using more sustainable materials within products, our Exertis vendor partners are constantly moving upwards and onwards with their contribution to reducing their impact on the environment. That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of Lenovo’s new series of their iconic ThinkPad laptops. This newest series has been built with sustainability and responsibility in mind, with new colours and materials to add an innovative boost to the Lenovo premium business laptop portfolio.

Z Series

The all-new ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 have an innovative design to target a different, business user audience. With this new design, Lenovo exhibit the changes they’re making to move towards a more environmentally-conscious way of creating and distributing technology, with specific focus on the impact of tech on the environment, and the origins of raw components.
The design provides striking and unique colour accents, such as bronze and arctic grey, and features more sustainable materials such as recycled aluminium, and recycled black vegan leather.

The ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 will be one of the first laptops to be powered by the latest RyzenTM PRO 6000 Series processors for mobile with the Microsoft Pluton security processor, which is designed and updated by Microsoft to harden new Windows 11 PCs with protection for user identity, data, and applications.

This new sustainable approach extends to the packaging of the ThinkPad Z Series, too. Lenovo’s packaging for these devices is now made from 100% recyclable and compostable bamboo and sugarcane. And the AC power adapter uses 90% Post-Consumer Content (PCC).

Lenovo and AMD

To make sure customers always get the very best out of their tech, Lenovo has teamed up with AMD to deliver cutting-edge platform design, streamlining all aspects of the system from silicon to hardware and software. The ThinkPad Z13, paired with the exclusive AMD RyzenTM 7 PRO 6860Z processor delivers an innovative user experience. The AMD processor is optimised to provide users with seamless audio and video performance, maximise responsiveness, and to deliver superior battery life in key business applications like Teams and Zoom. ThinkPad Z16 can also be configured with the new AMD RaedonTM RX 6500M discrete graphics, allowing AMD smart technologies to boost productivity, and enable content creation and casual gaming. When paired with Ryzen processors, AMD Smart Shift Max offers an instant power boost for both CPU and GPU. Meanwhile, Smart Shift Eco is designed specifically to maximise battery efficiency.

Built for users

Lenovo create all of their products with their customers’ wants and needs at the forefront of the design and build process. Every detail of their products are there for a reason. The ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 are no different, as both models excel at offering the best outcome for end users, with highlights including:

  • Communications Bar integrating an FHD camera with a larger sensor, electronic e-Shutter for privacy, and dual-array microphones
  • Highest screen-to-body (STB) ratio in the entire ThinkPad portfolio
  • Larger 120mm haptic ForcePad
  • Vivid display options, including touch-enabled 2.8K OLED on the Z13, and 4K OLED on the Z16, both with Dolby Vision support and low blue light
  • Dolby Atmos speaker system and Dolby Voice AI noise cancellation technology
  • New double-tap function on TrackPoint to launch Communication QuickMenu, for rapid access to camera and microphone settings
  • Pre-loaded with Windows 11
  • Match-on-chip fingerprint reader integrated into the keyboard for security and convenience

As Lenovo take essential steps to ensure their business becomes more sustainable and responsible, they also continue to produce top-quality, innovative technology that gives users the best possible outcomes.
