Lenovo ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 Overview
Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the ThinkPad lineup, Lenovo has announced its brand new series of powerful business laptop (s). The ThinkPad Z16 is a versatile business device that’s powerful yet portable. It comes with all the typical ThinkPad features we know and love but in a larger chassis packing in more performance.
Performance and Security
ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 is powered by the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 6850H processor which is an 8 Core 16 Thread chipset with base and boost frequencies of 3.2 GHz and 4.7 GHz respectively. It comes with 16MB of L3 cache and Radeon 680M integrated Graphics. There are configurations missing a dedicated GPU but the one here has the AMD RX 6500M with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.
The laptop is protected by ThinkShield- Lenovo’s comprehensive suite of security solutions. This includes hardware solutions like preventing tampering of BIOS through ports and security chips, software offerings like included firewall, and VPN, and additional security features like Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and remote security management.
As for the memory, ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 comes with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM at 6400 MHz. Since it is soldered, the RAM is non-upgradable. The storage options include 512 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB. The variant available in Nepal has 16GB RAM and 512 GB SSD.
Design and Display
The ThinkPad Z16 features a 75% recycled aluminum chassis which is a first for any ThinkPad. The 16” screen is surrounded by thin bezels (STB of 92.3%) and features a ‘Communication Bar’ which houses an integrated FHD webcam alongside dual microphones. Despite the larger form factor and a MIL-STD-810H rating, ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 weighs under 2 kgs (1.81 or 1.95 kg).
The keyboard is the classic ThinkPad experience with the usual keys and fingerprint reader. The TrackPoint now has the added utility of opening a quick window when double-tapped. ThinkPad Z16 Gen 1 gets a trackpad overhaul with a larger 120mm glass touchpad with haptic feedback.
The display is an eye candy as well. The large 16-inch screen comes with various resolution configurations. The one making its way to Nepal is WUXGA (1920×1080) non-touch IPS panel. But WUXGA Touch and 4K+(3840×2400) OLED panels are also available elsewhere. Regardless, all the displays boast 100% sRGB coverage, 16:10 aspect ratio, 400 nits of typical max brightness, and TUV Low Blue Light Certification.
Battery and Connectivity
In the tank, ThinkPad Z16 houses a 72 Wh Lithium battery that charges via the 130 W USB-C Slim Adapter provided in the box. It can go from 0 to 80% in just 60 minutes.
The laptop performed excellently in the MobileMark 2018 benchmark lasting 20.5 hours. ThinkPad Z16 can stream local 1080p video at 250 nits brightness for more than 28 hours on a single charge.
