Lenvovo has released two high-performance laptops under the new L series range aimed at business and education markets.
The L412 and L512 are based on Intel’s Core i3 and i5 processors with turbo boost and hyperthreading technology, and feature 3G wireless connectivity options. The L412 comes with a 14-inch screen, while the L512 has a 15-inch display. Both are 16:9, anti-glare and high-definition.
The vendor claims the L series takes advantage of the latest green technology practices and uses up to 30 per cent post-consumer content from plastic office water jugs and used IT equipment components in the LCD cover, palm rests and casing. For example, the L512 contains 18 per cent post consumer content (PCC), making it the industry’s highest amount of PCC in a laptop. Each L Series laptop saves the equivalent of 10 plastic water bottles and has a 5.0 Energy Star and EPEAT Gold rating.
Both machines offer military-grade durability and Web conferencing abilities with digital array microphones, speakers and a Web cam. Other features include up to 512MB DDR RAM, the choice of integrated Intel graphics or the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 chip, multi touchpads, up to eight hours battery life and four USB ports.
The L412 and L512 are bundled with Windows 7 and Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience, Power Manager and ThinkVantage functionality such as access connections. They will be available to all Lenovo business partners from mid-May and start from RRP$1199 (L512) and RRP$1349 (L412).
