Lenovo’s ThinkPad A series is the result of the company’s partnership with AMD. Besides its Ryzen Pro-based ThinkCentre M715 systems, Lenovo announced the launch of its first AMD-based Enterprise ThinkPad Notebook series at the AMD Ryzen Pro media event in New York.
Lenovo’s ThinkPad A475 and ThinkPad A275
The ThinkPad A-Series laptops will sport support for future Ryzen-based CPUs from AMD. Lenovo is aiming at large enterprises, education, government, and SMB customers with these devices. The first set of laptops in the series is the ThinkPad A475 and ThinkPad A275.
These new laptops are not powered by Ryzen Pro mobile CPUs, although with the creation of this new A series it will only be a matter of time considering that the processors will be released in 2018. Instead, you’ll be able to purchase the laptops with either AMD Bristol Ridge Pro or Carizzo Pro APUs.
Customize your ThinkPad A-series order
You can already find these options available via the company’s E-series laptops. Lenovo said that users would be able to customize their orders for A-series, something you were not able to do with the E-series.
The ThinkPad A475 is based on the ThinkPad T series laptops and will sport a 14-inch display, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and either AMD Bristol Ridge Pro or Carizzo Pro APUs.
The ThinkPad A275 is based on ThinkPad X series laptops and will feature a 12.5-inch display and up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM. Both laptops will include a USB-C port and some USB-A ports.
Lenovo did not reveal the price tag for these two laptops during the AMD Ryzen Pro media event, but we are pretty sure it will depend on the components customers will choose to equip the laptops with.
