Business users appreciate the sleek appearance of Lenovo
ThinkPad computers. They enjoy Lenovo's ThinkPad line because of the clicky
keyboards, red rubber stops, and strong build quality. Lenovo, however,
introduced a tweak to the ThinkPads at the present Consumer Electronics Show,
CES 2022. It's a welcome change. The new ThinkPad Z-series laptops have
recycled vegan leather, recyclable aluminium, and compostable sugarcane and
bamboo materials, which are often found on computers intended for personal use.
The ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 are new laptops in the ThinkPad
line that adopt a modern approach to material choices for the body. Vegan
leather, bamboo, and sugarcane aren't typically found on business laptops, but
Lenovo may have a different perspective. It is attempting to remind consumers
of the importance of sustainability and the fact that these items, if
abandoned, contribute to unmanageable e-waste. And it's possible that this will
push some ThinkPad users away.
