1Lenovo Offers New Notebooks, Netbooks, ‘Smartbooks’ at 2010 CES
Lenovo is offering its new ThinkPad Edge line, which includes 13-, 14- and 15-inch models, in two colors: black and red. Lenovo’s increased color options reflect its theory that ThinkPad owners are increasingly using their devices for both enterprise and personal use, and thus will want more variety than the standard-issue black color.
The ThinkPad Edge includes a new, larger multitouch touchpad for fingers to pinch, zoom and scroll, along with a variety of ports. Pricing for the 13-inch version starts at $549, with pricing for the 14-inch and 15-inch to become available when the devices are released in the second quarter of 2010.
Lenovo’s IdeaPad S10-3t includes a revolving 10.1-inch display that allows the device to be converted into a tablet. Processor options include the Intel Atom N470, and battery options include either a 4-cell battery for four hours’ life, or an 8-cell (hybrid 4 cell + 4 cell) battery for 10 hours’ life.
Lenovo is also updating its line with T410s, T410 and T510 laptops, which boast Intel dual-core processors for heavy data-crunching. In addition, the company is suggesting that its 9-cell batteries in various models will provide between 18 and 22 hours’ battery life.
