We’ve also equipped devices with the ability to use side mechanical docking featuring new flexible support mechanics to enable self-leveling at nearly any angle for increased connectivity, stability and longer platform durability.
Smarter Security Measures in Place

For an extra layer of security, we’ve also integrated an optional ePrivacy filter, the ThinkPad PrivacyGuard on both the T495s and X395, aimed at shielding your screen content from unwanted side glances from prying onlookers. Users wanting an early warning if someone might be “shoulder surfing” only need to wait a few months for the added ThinkPad PrivacyAlert5 feature that automatically enables the PrivacyGuard.
