today announced four new ThinkPad PCs – the T410s, T410 and T510
laptops and W510 mobile workstation – to bring higher levels of
performance and productivity to business users. The new laptops are
based on upcoming Intel Core dual-core processors and equip users
with faster multi-tasking performance, more energy efficient
performance and greater manageability for IT departments. Beyond
powerful processing performance improvements, the new laptops extend
individual productivity with never before seen ThinkPad 22 hour battery
life on select models, more multitouch screen options and a single
wireless broadband solution with the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 module.
laptops are built for business with the performance, portability and
wireless capabilities users need and the manageability, reliability and
durability IT departments require,” said Peter Hortensius, senior vice
president, ThinkPad Business Unit, Lenovo. “These latest enhancements
in processing speed, battery life and wireless technologies help users
work faster, longer and smarter.”
T410s provides a thin and light design with full performance for
extremely mobile users, while the T410 and T510 are designed for full
performance for mainstream business users. The high performance W510
mobile workstation fits the needs of professionals in data and
graphics-demanding fields like oil and gas, computer aided design and
new PCs offer maximum processing performance with a selection of new
upcoming Intel Core processors. Combined with upcoming Intel Core
vPro technology and Lenovo’s ThinkVantage Technologies’
manageability features, IT departments can remotely manage their PC
fleet and deploy power settings, Internet connection profiles and more.
Additionally, Intel Turbo Boost Technology on the W510 and
T Series laptops automatically and intelligently accelerates
performance, dynamically adjusting to the workload to give business
users an immediate performance boost when needed.
W510 has four memory slots for up to 16GB of high performance 1333 MHz
DDR3 memory. It also offers Nvidia’s 1GB GPU and the latest Intel
Core i7 processors. As the first ThinkPad to offer USB 3.0, users can
transfer data quickly reaching speeds up to 10x the performance over
T410s now comes with Nvidia switchable graphics with 512 MB of VRAM so
users can balance a visually-intense graphics experience with energy
efficiency and battery life. The laptops are also certified under Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience program for Windows 7.
This means they start up significantly faster than identical
configuration, non-optimized PCs. For example, on select Think PCs,
Windows 7 starts up to 56 percent faster compared to running Windows XP
or Vista and shuts down in as little as five seconds.
added convenience, a powered USB port comes on all the new PCs and can
be used to charge MP3 players, phones and other devices when the PC is
on, on standby or off (if plugged in).
W510 gives users a new kind of power – the power of touch – for a new
way to work with an optional multi-finger touch screen. Lenovo includes
the SimpleTap application to help make navigating the touchscreen simple. The W510 also has added an optional color calibrator, first debuted in the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation, to help ensure the most accurate colors on its high gamut full high definition screen.
new laptops also improve the typing experience with larger Escape and
Delete keys. Since Lenovo found users hit the Delete and Escape keys up
to 700 times a week on average, the sizes of these keys have been
increased starting with the T400s laptop.
extend the workday even longer without plugging in, Lenovo offers a new
nine cell slice battery on the T410, T510 and W510 laptops for up to 22
hours of battery life. The laptops also offer optional 3G
connectivity leveraging EV-DO and HSPA wireless networks with Qualcomm
Gobi 2000™ technology. This module allows businesses to standardize on
a single hardware platform that can be deployed globally and
accommodate multiple carriers to simplify international deployments.
