Lenovo's Newest ThinkPads Feature Snapdragon Processors and 165Hz Screens

An anonymous reader shares a report:

Lenovo has dumped a whole bunch of new ThinkPads into the world, and there’s some exciting stuff in there. We’re getting a brand-new ThinkPad X13s powered by Snapdragon chips, a fifth-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme with a WQXGA 165Hz screen option, and new additions to the P-series and T-series as well. The news I’m personally most excited about is the screen shape. A few months ago, Lenovo told me that much of its portfolio would be moving to the 16:10 aspect ratio this year. They appear to be keeping their word. Across the board, the new models are 16:10 – taller and roomier than they were in their 16:9 eras. Some news that’s a bit more… intriguing is the all-new ThinkPad X13s, which is the first laptop to feature the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 compute platform. Qualcomm made some lofty claims about this platform upon its release, including “60 percent greater performance per watt” over competing x86 platforms and “multi-day battery life.” The ThinkPad X13s will run an Arm version of Windows 11, with its x64 app emulation support.

The P-series models and Intel T-series models will all be here in April, with prices ranging from $1,399 to $1,419.
