Lenovo ThinkPad L14 Gen 3 and ThinkPad L15 Gen 3 arrive with Intel Alder Lake

In a major overhaul of its ThinkPad lineup, Lenovo has announced the next-generation Lenovo ThinkPad L14 Gen 3 and ThinkPad L15 Gen 3, with the main new feature being the debut of the latest 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake processors, with a maximum configuration to include an Intel Core i7 processor.

And we’re talking about the vPro version of Intel processors, with added benefits for businesses and professionals, like the Intel Hardware Shield security platform. It’s a more expressive change than in the case of the AMD releases, which retain the AMD Ryzen Pro 5000 instead of the newer 6000, and it’s unclear why this generational “leap” wasn’t made. So there are fundamental differences between the two versions, with only options with Intel containing Thunderbolt 4 ports, while AMD gear will have to get away with USB-C 3.2, but at least one or the other of the options aligns with Bluetooth 5.2 and the option for 4G LTE.
