Lenovo today is breaking barriers for thin and light performance with the new ThinkPad X201 laptop, the industry’s fastest ultraportable laptop. Lenovo is also introducing five new Think-branded products to give customers a new level of value with more choice, unparalleled performance and greater productivity. These include the ThinkPad X201s laptop, the thinnest and lightest ThinkPad, the X201 tablet, the smart tablet for business users, the powerful W701 and W701ds mobile workstations, the most powerful ThinkPads, and the ThinkServer TS200v tower, Lenovo’s first server with unprecedented management capabilities and solid reliability at a desktop price.
“We’re continuing to push the envelope on innovation to give our mobile customers faster, more powerful and smarter ThinkPad laptops,” said Dilip Bhatia, executive director, ThinkPad Product Marketing, Lenovo. “These PCs incorporate the latest computing technologies and extra Lenovo features to make the PC experience more simple and productive.”
Ultralight Performance Matters.
At “over three gigahertz and under three pounds,” the ThinkPad X201 packs heavyweight performance into an extremely thin and light design. Unlike competitors that compromise on size, weight, performance or cooling, Lenovo has optimized the X201 for a no compromise experience between mobility and performance. The X201 outclocks competitors in its class by 25 percent and includes Intel’s normal volt Core Processors while competitors offer low volt processors. The X201 also gets extremely long battery life with up to 11 hours. The new ThinkPad X201s, the X Series’ featherweight fighter, weighs in at under 2.5 pounds and now achieves over 12 hours of battery life.
Mobile Workstation Power and Productivity.
For those who need extreme performance and productivity, the new W Series mobile workstations are Lenovo’s most powerful ThinkPads yet. They pair Intel Core i7 Series processors (with Intel Turbo Boost and Intel Hyperthreading technologies) with NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800 and 3800 Series GPUs. These technologies help deliver the responsiveness of a workstation in a 17 inch mobile design. The W701 and W701ds are the only 17 inch mobile workstations to feature an optional built-in color calibrator to help professionals in computer aided design and digital content creation ensure accurate colors are displayed. They are also the only mobile workstations to feature an optional built-in WACOM digitizer and pen to manipulate fine details. The W701 and W701ds are certified to run the most popular applications from independent software vendors, Dassault Systemes CATIA, SolidWorks, PTC Pro/E and more.
“Lenovo’s ThinkPad mobile workstations have helped us increase our productivity by 20 percent,” said Alan Duerden, lead systems engineer, McLaren Racing. “We rely on these mobile workstations for determining computational fluid dynamics and rendering high performance graphics to improve the car’s design as well as to support our drivers on the track.”
A Smart Tablet for Business.
Lenovo optimized the ThinkPad X201 tablet for a smart business computing experience. Unlike slate devices designed for consumers, the X201 tablet features:

interface and Lenovo SimpleTap navigation application

Big Server Features, Small Server Price for the Small Office and MSP
The ThinkServer TS200v goes big on features and performance at an unbelievably affordable price. Designed as an entry single processor server with models starting under $500 for small businesses, corporate branch offices and managed service providers (MSP), the ThinkServer TS200v provides a reliable, easy to set up and manage, energy-efficient solution. As the first server with Intel Active Management Technology, it makes remote management easy for customers who may not have a dedicated IT staff. It also includes enterprise-class reliability features like memory error correction and built-in RAID protection.
Unexpected Features. Unprecedented Value.
Lenovo PCs are engineered with the unexpected, extra features that make a difference. These features are practical and simple solutions that make everyday computing more convenient. For example, now the fingerprint reader on the ThinkPad X Series laptops works as conveniently as using an electronic pas for a car going through a toll booth. Users can power on their laptop just by swiping their finger on the fingerprint reader without having to press the power button.
