Lenovo Updates Enterprise Lineup with New Features

Tech giant Lenovo is taking advantage of CES 2017 taking place in Las Vegas from Thursday through Sunday to refresh its lineup of products aimed at the enterprise market. In particular, Lenovo is launching several updated machines in its storied ThinkPad family of laptops.

Those refreshed laptops, the Carbon (pictured above), Yoga and Tablet, are scheduled to go on sale in February or March. All three belong to Lenovo?EU?s ThinkPad X1 line of ultraportable laptops designed to make it easier for employees to take their work with them while on the go.
