I have a soft spot for Lenovo with good reason. The company build very high quality laptops, the best on the market. If you browse through the website archives and search laptops, you'll likely see Lenovo dominate most of the written content. That's why I'm pretty excited about what Lenovo is about the release to market, three new laptops.. The fact that each new laptop will be integrated with the latest 10th gen Comet Lake processor and have advanced storage technology has me even more stoked with excitement.
First up we have the new Thinkpad T490, it's fitted with up to 10th Gen Comet Lake Intel Core i7 processors. Still retaining its signature compact sharply squared build measuring just 17.9mm thick, and weighing 3.2 pounds. Consumers have the option to choose from several display types that include 500 nits, WQHD Dolby Vision screen, or 400 nit FHD display.

When it comes to the battery, it delivers up to 15-hours of power and has Rapid Charge technology that delivers 80% capacity with an hour of charge. The network connectivity includes a Global LTE-A wireless WAN and WiFi Gig+ for LAN connections. Most high-end laptops will allow you to exceed memory past the standard 8GB and have more advanced storage technology. This particular model is no exception. You have the option to exceed memory capacity up to 48GB and storage up to 1TB PCIe SSD and Intel Optane SSD. Retail price for the ThinkPad T490 starts at $1,129 and is expected be launched in October.
