Lenovo Refreshes Thinkpad T, L, and W Series Laptops
Lenovo capitalizes their Thinkpad L, T, and W series laptops with improved processors and battery life. Long live Lenovo!
Lenovo’s not out of the game yet as they’ve unleashed some buffed up Thinkpad T, L, and W series laptops refreshed with Intel’s latest processors, NVIDIA/ATI’s graphic cards, and not to mention improved VoIP features. The new laptops complement Lenovo’s serious push into the laptop market with their Sandy Bridge devices back at the CES 2011. And although the designs lack a little innovation or design at all (they look like our dad’s laptops in the early 2000s), these powerhouse laptops can sure pack a punch with their specs. Hit the break to check out an overview of each series.
ThinkPad T Series – Faster and more efficient. The 14-inch T420s/T420 and the 15.6 T520 just got better as Lenovo upgraded them with some new Core i5 and i7 processors. The new models will also equip the NVIDIA Optimus GeForce 4200M GPU with 1GB VRAM. The series promises faster boot times of up to 30% and improved battery life. The T420 is capable of holding out to 30 hours with its nine-cell slice extended battery. T420s is priced at $1,329, the T420 at $799, and the slightly larger T520 at $909.
ThinkPad L Series – The series carries Intel’s Core 2011 i7 and i5 processors, ATI’s Radeon HD 565 discrete graphics, and is capable of carrying of up to 8GB of RAM. The 14-inch L420 and 15.6-inch L520 packs an adequate amount of fire power though we got a little issue with the L420 only capable of giving a 1366 x 768 resolution display. The 15.6-inch version fares better as it gives a 1600 x 900 resolution panel.
ThinkPad W520 – The 15-inch W520 got alot of things going on as it is powered by Core i5 and Core i7 processors, NVIDIA’s Fermi Quadro 100M or 200M graphics, and up to 2GB graphics memory. The price for power? The W520 starts at $1.329.
Lenovo’s Thinkpad line-up will be available by the end of March.View Article Source »
