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.

Since everything's going wireless, why not add graphics cards into the fray?

NVIDIA has once again outdone themselves and the rest of the competition as they unveil the world’s very first wireless graphic card, the KFA2 GeForce GTX460 WHDI 1024MB PCIe 2.0. With five aerials sticking out of the back of its compartment, the KFA2 GeForce GTX460 allows the end-user to wirelessly link their desktop PCs to their HDTV or other displays within a range of 100 feet. There’s nothing really special about it because it’s basically a GTX 460 card, but the wireless feature speaks for itself.

NVIDIA will also offer two different models: a budget-friendly 1.5GB version of GDDR3, and a powerful 3GB of GDDR 3 model.

The GT 440 is said to be two-way SLI ready, and will support PhysX, CUDA and 3D vision. As standards, the cards will come with HDMI, VGA and DVI connectors, and will support a 2560 x 1600 digital port resolution and 2048 x 1536 analogue VGA pixel. The only information missing is the price. But with the card aimed at OEMs, the cost should be kept a bit low.
