THE Lenovo Another line of notebooks debuted in Brazil this Wednesday (14). Known as ThinkPad Z, the new family stands out for bringing recycled materials, AMD Ryzen processor, up to 32 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of SSD. So far, everything is cool, with the exception of one small-great detail: the computers start at R$18,000.
Continuing the success of the Think line, the new models are aimed at the corporate public. But Lenovo decided to bring a different approach, by using recycled materials in the composition of laptops.
According to the manufacturer, the ThinkPad Z13 and ThinkPad Z16 use aluminum or recycled synthetic material, depending on the colors.
“Sustainability comes down to the packaging, which is made from 100% recyclable and compostable bamboo and sugar cane, and the AC adapter uses 90% post-consumer content (PCC),” they said.
These aspects were employed alongside another promise: durability. This is because computers carry the stamp MIL-STD-810Happlied to products that follow military standard requirements.
