Lenovo renews ThinkPad L390 with Intel Whiskey Paint chips

Lenovo renews the ThinkPad L series with the ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga. Both models replace the current ThinkPad L380 series and use the latest Intel Whiskey Paint processors.

The ThinkPad L-Series is the budget series of Lenovo within its business portfolio. Depending on the screen size, the L580, L480 or L380 can be used. The latter has a 13.3 inch screen and is the first in the lineup to be renewed.

Like its predecessor, the ThinkPad L390 is available in two flavours: classic and yoga. The latter has a 360 degree hinge so you can use the laptop in different positions. Lenovo’s L-Series is aimed at professionals or consumers who want to buy serious hardware.

Active pen

In the chassis of the ThinkPad L390 there is room for an active pen (optional). This reduces the chance of forgetting the pen somewhere. Both the L390 and the L390 Yoga have a touch screen where you can use the pen. Both laptops are MIL-SPEC tested for strength.

Both the ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga have a 720p web camera at the top of the screen, but only the Yoga variant has a depth-sensitive camera that is Windows Hello-compatible. Both models have a fingerprint sensor to the right of the Windows Hello touchpad.

Whiskey Lake

The devices have the latest 8th generation Intel chips on board. The Whiskey Lake R variant is 10 percent faster than the Kaby Lake R variant that has been available since early 2018. If you still have a 7th generation Intel chip, you can enjoy a speed boost of up to 50 percent with the latest chips.

Both models have 2x USB-A and 2x USB-C, but unfortunately no Thunderbolt 3 versions. There is also 1x HDMI, 1x MicroSD and 1x miniRJ-45. Both models have a Full HD display and can be configured with an Intel Core i3, Core i5 or Celeron.

Prices start from 919 euro for the ThinkPad L390 and 1.045 euro for the ThinkPad L390 Yoga. Both models are now available in the Benelux.
