Five New Think-branded Products Push Envelope on Value

Published March 31st, 2010 - 09:07 GMT


Dubai, UAE –31st March, 2010: Lenovo  Middle East, Egypt and Pakistan (MEEP) announced today the launch of its latest Think-branded products in the region. Lenovo is breaking barriers for thin and light performance with the new ThinkPad X201 laptop, the industry’s fastest ultraportable laptop1. Lenovo is also introducing four 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 and the powerful W701 and W701ds mobile workstations, the most powerful ThinkPads.

Ultralight Performance Matters
At “over three gigahertz and under three pounds1,” 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 percent1 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 hours2. The new ThinkPad X201s, the X Series’ featherweight fighter, weighs in at less than 2.5 pounds3 and now achieves over 12 hours4 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 Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading technology) 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.

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 pass for 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.

Lenovo is also taking the hassle out of replacing laptop batteries by offering a new three year warranty on the X Series laptops for more up and running time. Strong design and performance go hand in hand, and Think PCs are designed to last. Roll cages on the W701 and W701ds, carbon glass fiber on the X201s and the Active Protection System in all the laptops help them meet up to eight military specifications for burning and blistery temperatures, shock, high altitude and dust.  

Because costs add up, it’s also important to remember the hidden savings energy efficient technology can provide. All the new products meet Energy Star 5.0 and Energy Star Server 1.0. Many of the laptop models are EPEAT Gold-rated for their environmental attributes, including high amounts of post consumer recycled plastics.
