ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 5 leads Lenovo’s new ThinkPads

Lenovo is constant noisemaker in tech conferences and MWC 2022 is no different. The company unveiled their brand spanking new ThinkPad lineup in Spain, Barcelona spearheaded by the X1 Extreme Gen 5.

Other devices in the lineup are the ThinkPad T series, the ThinkVision M14d, and the ThinkPad P series.

ThinkPad X1 Extreme G5

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme G5 is appropriately named. “Hybrid Work” is a term plenty of laptop makers like to throw around these days, but this is truly the ultimate hybrid work device for any kind of worker. Check out these specs:

  • 16-inch 4K, 16:10 display
  • 165Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision HDR, Optional touch and pen input
  • 12th Gen Intel Core-H series processor. Up to i9, optional vPro technology
  • NVIDIA Graphics: Options for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 16GB GDDR6, NVIDIA GeForce
  • RTX 3050 Ti, RTX 3060, RTX 3070 Ti.
  • Fast DDR5 4800Mhz memory up to 64GB
  • Two (2) 4TB M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs
  • 90Wh battery
  • SD Express 7.0 card reader to support the latest ultra-fast SDXC memory cards
  • Dolby Voice with its latest noise cancelling technology

Looking at these numbers makes us think of the workers that really need it. These are high-grade PC numbers, one used in the office by architects, 3D engineers, game developers and the like. In the height of the pandemic, pre-vaccine, when everyone was forced to work from home, it’s these workers that may have faced strong challenges. How do you bring home monster PCs like that?


The ThinkPad X1 Extreme G5 is a direct response to this. These are premium-grade numbers meant for big PC builds, but Lenovo was able to put it in a more mobile form factor.

ThinkPad P series

Lenovo calls the ThinkPad P series their most mobile workhorses. It offers a mix of power and performance for professional users-on-the-go.

Here’s what you’re getting:

  • Latest Intel Core processors and NVIDIA T550 professional graphics.
  • ISV-certified and ideally suited to power applications such as AutoCAD, Revit, SolidWorks, and
  • Reliability and durability with the ThinkShield security suite and MIL-SPEC testing.
  • Improved usability feature: a wider touchpad, all-day battery capacity, an upgraded FHD webcam, blue light reduction and X-Rite factory color calibration


The ThinkPad P16s Gen 1 redefines power and portability with a thin and light 16-inch chassis. This new form factor, like all ThinkPad P series, is designed with engineers, architects, and students in mind. It has a 16:10 aspect ratio display that delivers increased screen space for viewing and creating with extreme clarity. Both workstations will be available in black or an aluminum storm grey cover.

ThinkPad T series

This batch consists of the ThinkPad T16, ThinkPad T14s Gen 3 and T14 Gen 3. The ThinkPad T series is Lenovo’s most successful business line series. Nearly everyone has encountered some for of the ThinkPad T series since they’re ever present in corporate settings.

The 2022 iterations present everything we know about the ThinkPad T but refines them for the modern workforce.


They are available available with either the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors with optional Intel vPro technology, or the latest AMD RyzenTM PRO 6000 Series processors for mobile with the Microsoft Pluton security processor, all running up to Windows 11 Pro.

ThinkVision M14d

Last but not the least is the ThinkVision M14d. Put simply, it’s a screen extension for the mobile worker. It weights just 600g, and is a 14-inch 2.2K display. It is easily connected via a USB Type-C cable which can also offer power pass-through for a one cable solution.

The ThinkVision M14d’s two USB-C ports support data transfer which lets the M14d can act as a USB hub. It is designed for extended use thanks to an ergonomic height adjustment stand up to 11mm and features natural low blue light technology to reduce eye strain. What’s more, it comes with a protective sleeve so it can conveniently slip into a carry case with a laptop.
