Schenker refreshes the WORK 15 and 17 laptops with Alder Lake silicon
As the name suggests, Schenker pitches the WORK series of laptops as all-rounders for the office. Its latest 15- and 17-inch variants now have refreshed mid-2022 (M22) models with 12th-gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processors. Therefore, they still have Thunderbolt 4 and up-to-date security features, yet are rated for "significantly" improved performance over their Tiger Lake-H35-based predecessors.
Schenker gets nowhere near subtle with the product name for its enterprise-focused laptop line; then again, with the practical mix of aluminum and plastic in their construction, "flicker-free" FHD IPS screens and backlit keyboards as a main dash of flair, the WORK machines may indeed make a go-to option for the office.
Their latest 15- and 17-inch M22 variants look exactly like the existing 11th-gen Intel-based devices already out there; however, they come with updated Core i5-1250P or i7-1260P processor options, with Xe integrated graphics.
Therefore, the updated laptops will still have 1 Thunderbolt 4 port each (along with an extra USB 3.2 Gen2 type-C port) apiece; however, Schenker asserts that they will also come with "significantly increased multi-thread computing power" that might extend beyond the basic remote-working task.
The WORK 15 and 17 M22 are also equipped with aWindows Hello-enabled webcam, hardware based TPM 2.0 and a Kensington lock, although only the 15-inch model also has a fingerprint reader.
They are available to pre-order from €1,149 (~US$1,205) and €1,179(~$1,236) respectively with 8GB of upgradeable RAM and a 500GB Samsung 980 SSD apiece from now on Schenker's Bestware store.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
