THINKPAD brand from LENOVO:

T14 Gen 2[^] for lightweight + intel Xe + powerful laptop + ethernet port + smartcard reader (optional).
T14s Gen 2[^] for lighter + intel Xe + powerful laptop + NO ethernet port + smartcard reader (optional).
X1 carbon Gen 9[^] even lighter + intel Xe + more premium same power laptop + No ethernet port.

X1 extreme Gen 4 -- link to notebookcheck see the specs there[^] (almost here (Gen 3 here[^])) a much more powerful with dedicated GPU + yet portable device + No ethernet port.
P1 gen 4 (almost here (gen 3 here[^])) the same but with professional GPUs and Xeon + No ethernet port.


With all them you get:
- Lenovo Vantage: the best way to keep your drivers and updates up to date.
- a military and very durable tested device[^].
- a super nice keyboard (I really find it better than most of the other things I tried).
- Plenty of security features.
- a good port selection.
- 5G as an option.
- discrete Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (dTPM 2.0) chip.

Of course if you want raw power there are the AMD options for the T14/T14s.

I'm just waiting for a maxed out X1 carbon gen 9 or a P1 gen 4 to be available to buy.

Been working with a T460s for a few years and I really love this machine, no warranty now, that's why I want to replace it.

I always get them with 24 hours max unit replacement in case of accidental damage, keeping the HDD.
It would be a big mess walking down a plane getting it broken and not being able to do my job because I have lost my laptop...

Hope this helps!
