MWC 2022 | ThinkBook 13s Gen 4 i unveiled with a 16:10 2.5K screen, Intel Alder Lake processors, LPDDR5 RAM, and more
Lenovo announced a wide range of high and low-end laptops at MWC 2022. Among other things, they are powered by Intel's newly-announced Alder Lake-P processors and bring forth several QoL upgrades over their predecessors. The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 4 i also takes advantage of the Alder Lake platform by upgrading the RAM to LPDDR5. Lastly, the "I" at the end tacitly suggests that a variant with AMD processors could be unveiled soon.
Starting with the screen, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 4 i features a 13.3-inch WQXGA 2.5K (2560 x 1600) IPS LCD panel with a peak brightness of 400 nits and 100% coverage of the SRGB colour spectrum. A touch-enabled panel with 300 nits brightness is also offered, along with a 2K (1920X1200) resolution version. Under the hood, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen4 i packs an unspecified Intel Alder Lake processor (up to an i7). In all likelihood, it could be one of the recently announced Alder Lake-P models. There is no option to add a dGPU, unfortunately.
Memory and storage conjurations max out at 16 GB of 4,800 MT/s LPDDR5 RAM and 1 TB of solid-state storage. Lenovo claims that the ThinkBook 13s Gen 4 i lasts for up to 11 hours with its 56 Wh battery. It supports 65 W fast charging over USB-C. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.1, 2x Thunderbolt 4.0 ports, 1 USB Type-A port, 1 HDMI port and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. The laptop weighs 1.25 kg (2.75lbs) and measures 297 x 211 x 14.9 mm(11.69 x 8.31 x 0.59 inches). The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 4 i will be available from April 2022, starting at US$849.
