At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023, Lenovo unveiled a slew of laptops in its Z, X, T, E, and L lines—the coolest of which, in our opinion, are the second-generation ThinkPad Z13 and Z16.

The laptops have features catered toward business users, including a new TrackPoint Quick Menu that lets you quickly adjust settings related to video calls, such as camera, mic volume, voice dictation, noise suppression, and more.

Both laptops are powered by the latest AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processor with AMD Radeon 700M Series graphics, Windows 11, and can be configured with up to 64GB Dual Channel memory and up to 2TB PCIe SSD.

Alongside the default aluminum finish, the Z13 is available with an optional natural fiber reinforced material bonded to the 75% recycled aluminum top cover. This woven Flax material is made from 100% agricultural product collected by harvesting flax plant fibers.

The ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2, on the other hand, is available only with an aluminum finish.
