Product Overview

Lenovo ThinkPad T15 GEN 2 i is a premium 15.6-inch business laptop powered by 11th-gen Intel Core vPro processors. It offers rich security and connectivity features and options that business users have come to expect of the legendary T-series.
Sharing much of the same features and specifications of the T14 GEN 2 i, the T15 GEN 2 i introduces the Storm Grey aluminum option for the first time. It comes with an aluminum top cover that differs from the glass fiber chassis in black. There is also an antimicrobial-treated top cover option.
Compared to the X1 Extreme, the new T15 comes with a numeric keypad but loses the carbon fiber chassis in its stead.
Like other high-end GEN 2 ThinkPad models following Lenovo's new naming scheme, the new T15 now offers WiFi 6E. It can also be optioned with LTE WWAN for high performance data connections on the go.
Alongside the Intel-powered T15 GEN 2 i, Lenovo also unveiled 14-inch T14 GEN 2, T14 GEN 2 i, and T14s GEN 2 i powered by either AMD or Intel.
