The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 ($1,355.40 to start, $1,851.85 as configured) isn’t the ThinkPad you remember. Lenovo’s black, boxy design is iconic (and often shows up on our list of the best ultrabooks). But after 30 years of ThinkPads, Lenovo is mixing things up with the new Z-series, utilizing minimal ports, vegan leather and AMD chips.  

There are lots of little upgrades as well. An updated touchpad gets haptic feedback, and a “communications bar” houses a 1080p camera with IR functionality and dual microphones. It all sticks to the ThinkPad ethos, but feels more modern.
