The best accessories for Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 Gen 2

These accessories will make your ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 and ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2 even better once it’s in your hands and on your desk.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 and Z16 Gen 2 are one of the newest ThinkPad models from Lenovo. A candidate for one of the best laptops, the device is making a leap to the latest AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs under the hood. In the case of the ThinkPad Z13, there is also a new design option with a new woven flax fiber material. However, neither laptop is on sale yet, and a good way to prepare for the launch is to consider some accessories.

You can prepare your home or office setup for your new device by considering a monitor for better multitasking, a dock to add more ports, and even buy a carrying case, so you can transport your laptop safely once you have it. Below we’ve rounded up 16 of our favorite accessories to help you supercharge your setup.
