Lenovo notebook now comes in a color other than black.
Lenovo notebooks have never been accused of being cool or sexy. The company has gone outside the plain black design of its notebooks a bit in its netbook line with machines like the IdeaPad S12
, but its notebooks have been rather plain. Lenovo has announced its latest notebook called the ThinkPad Edge
that brings new tech to market along with a bright red color.
The ThinkPad Edge will be offered in 13-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch models and are aimed at small and medium size business customers. The 13-inch version is the first ThinkPad laptop to use AMD dual-core processors as well as being the first to offer AMD Vision Pro technology. The machines also come in color choices and have a new contemporary keyboard design.
Lenovo offers the notebooks with AMD Turion and Athlon Neo dual-core processors or Intel Core 2 Duo ULV processors. Intel standard dual core processors are also available. The machines are optimized for Windows 7 and Lenovo promises an optimistic battery life of over 8 hours. Connectivity features include WiFi and optional Bluetooth, 3G, and WiMax service. The machines will ship first in the U.S. with the 13-inch version starting at $US549 ($601). The 15-inch and 14-inch versions will debut in Q2.
