Typically, when we think about laptops, the most important part is the stuff that goes on the inside. Lenovo’s popular ThinkBook and ThinkPad laptop series don’t skimp on the stuff inside, but additionally provide a tough exterior housing, with many lines going through the famous “Lenovo stress tests” before being approved for sale. Here’s what sales are peaking our interests this year:

  • 14-inch ThinkBook 14 Gen 6 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) —
  • 16-inch ThinkPad E16 Gen 1 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) —
