Lenovo is releasing a range of business laptops in late March that push battery life benchmarks with up to 23 hours of life.
There are six models upcoming ThinkPad T, L and W series – T for top end performance, L for green computing and W for greater portability. The laptops integrate docking stations and batteries for notebook sharing around the office. These batteries offer more life with Intel’s latest energy-efficient processors and an extended battery that lasts up to 23 hours on the ThinkPad T420.
The internal 9-cell battery on the ‘T420’ offers 11.5 hours of battery life, boosting to up to 23 hours with the option 9-cell slice battery. The ‘T420s’ still offers high performance at low drainage with its 6-cell battery and optional optical bay battery delivering up to 9.3 hours of battery life.
The enhanced performance of 2nd gen Intel Core and Core vPro processors make these laptops quick, while added features suit the business user. Lenovo’s Instant Resume feature keeps wireless connections active during sleep mode for up to 99 minutes for hasty start ups.
Video conferencing is enhanced with a private chat and conference call separating feature that sets the microphone to 360 degree capture during group chats and noise cancellation to focus on one voice during private chats.
Recommended pricing for the T420s, T420, T520, L420, L520 and W520 starts at approximately AU$2949, AU$2449, AU$2299, $1399, AU$1199 and AU$4299 respectively.
