New Lenovo IdeaPad Laptops and IdeaCentre Desktops Deliver Style and Multimedia Features

New Lenovo IdeaPad Laptops and IdeaCentre Desktops Deliver Style and Multimedia Features: New PCs Bundle Lenovo Enhanced Experience Certification for Windows 7 and Complementary Intel Processor Technology

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) (ADR: LNVGY) unveiled a lineup of new IdeaPad laptops – U150, U550 and Y550P – and IdeaCentre desktops – B500, K300 and H230 – designed to meet the performance, style and usability standards of multi-tasking consumers.

The new Idea PCs combine stylish designs and innovative features enabled by the ultra low power Intel® Core™ processor family of products and improved performance with an Intel® Core™ i7 processor. These new products ship with Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system and also include the unique Lenovo Enhanced Experience for Windows 7 – the result of joint engineering by Lenovo in collaboration with Microsoft to provide users with faster PC boot and shutdown, richer multimedia features and easy maintenance tools.

“Our Idea products are designed with the user experience in mind – every aspect of product design and technology is engineered to improve how consumers seamlessly use these products to enrich their daily lives,” said Liu Jun, senior vice president, Idea Product Group, Lenovo. “Today’s additions to the Idea product portfolio are among Lenovo’s most feature-rich and powerful PCs to-date, providing our customers more choices to find the PC that best meets their unique digital lifestyle.”

“Lenovo and Intel share a vision to create products that are faster, lighter, thinner and with longer battery life and delivering them to consumers in the quickest and most cost effective way,” Gregory Bryant, vice president, Sales and Marketing Group, Intel Corporation. “Whether you are looking for ultrathin, stylish laptops with exceptional performance or beautiful and powerful desktops, Lenovo and Intel are working together to deliver Idea products with the right Intel® processor technology inside to meet your needs.”

“As a result of our joint engineering investments, Lenovo is demonstrating their commitment to Windows 7 by making significant improvements in important areas like start-up, shutdown and resume times. We congratulate Lenovo on its work, as we think it will help business customers and consumers benefit from a better computing experience on Lenovo’s leading products,” said John Kalkman, vice president of OEM Engineering and Services at Microsoft Corp. “With Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience, customers can be confident that their new PC delivers more of the exciting benefits that Windows 7 has to offer.”

Idea Product Facts

Lenovo’s latest IdeaPad laptops and IdeaCentre desktops meet consumer demands for mobility, added power to effectively multitask, flexibility to support professional and personal computing needs, data security, stylish designs and the latest multimedia features.

IdeaPad Y550P – Cutting-edge power for multimedia on the go
The Y550P is ideal for today’s multi-tasker and the most powerful laptop in Lenovo’s consumer portfolio. The Y550P is Lenovo’s first laptop to use the new Intel Core i7 processor with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology[1] that automatically speeds up the processor when the PC needs extra performance. This high-performance laptop also features powerful NVIDIA discrete graphics, a 15.6 inch HD widescreen display, Dolby® Home Theater™ surround sound and unique Lenovo tools like SlideNav – a touch-sensitive bar above the keyboard that makes it faster and easier to navigate programs, documents and shortcuts, or even quickly change the desktop wallpaper on users’ PCs.

IdeaPad U150 – Slim and chic portability
The U150 is just 13.5 mm thick and weighs only 1.35 kg[2], yet under the textured red or black cover lies a range of features designed to strike the right balance between mobility and functionality. The ultraportable U150, with an energy-efficient Intel Core 2 Duo processor, supports up to 8GB DDR3 memory, 11.6 in HD widescreen display and long battery life. The Active Protection System on the U150 helps protect the hard drive if the laptop is dropped or gets bumped. A new version of OneKey Rescue System, Version 7.0, performs data backups up to twice as fast and includes more powerful antivirus scanning that can be run even before loading the operating system.

IdeaPad U550 – Ultraportable laptop with added flexibility for the office and home
At just 24 mm thick and with a 15.6 in wide HD wide screen display, the new IdeaPad U550 laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo processor includes a range of features that make it easy for users to transition between work and home use. For example, switchable graphics let users turn their discrete graphics card on and off at the press of a button to better manage PC battery life. Dolby® Sound Room surround-sound via the laptop’s large, integrated speakers brings presentations to life and makes games and movies more enjoyable. The Ambient Light Sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness based on light conditions, reducing strain on the eyes. A built-in DVD drive delivers added flexibility to access and share content. The integrated fingerprint reader and VeriFace™ facial recognition software on the U550 provide additional ease of use when logging onto the PC.

IdeaCentre B500 – High performance all-in-one, immersive entertainment experience
Featuring an Intel® Core™2 Quad processor, powerful discrete graphics, up to 8GB DDR3 memory and 1TB HDD storage space, the IdeaCentre B500 all-in-one desktop is the ultimate PC for serious gamers and multimedia users. The 23 in Full HD screen and high-quality JBL-brand integrated speakers provide a quality viewing experience. Coupled with a 4-in-1 remote control that acts as a motion-drive games controller, VOIP handset, air mouse and media remote, the B500 supports a dynamic multimedia entertainment experience. Additional unique Lenovo features on the B500 include CamSuite, a tool that helps to keep users in the center of the Web camera’s focus and adds special effects to live video feeds.

IdeaCentre K300 – Desktop PC with optimized power and control
The IdeaCentre K300 with the Intel Core 2 Quad processor is a performance desktop loaded with powerful technologies including high-performance RAID configured hard drives for added storage and peace of mind. It also includes the Lenovo Power Control Switch, which makes it simple for users to adjust the level of power they need – from all-out performance to more energy-efficient modes.

Lenovo H230 – Functionality at a value price
Available starting at US $449 and equipped with a range of HDD and DDR3 memory configurations, the H230 is designed to offer consumers the perfect mix of performance and value. Integrated tools such as Lenovo Rescue System provide users a worry-free experience by enabling quick and easy data recovery and advanced antivirus technology.

The IdeaPad U350 ultraportable laptop and S10-2 netbook are now available in a range of new textures and colorful patterns. The U350 can be purchased with cool, eye-catching cover textures such as brown lizard print, white lamb skin print and red light weave.

Lenovo Boosts Digital Entertainment and Personal Productivity with Windows 7-Based PCs

Lenovo Boosts Digital Entertainment and Personal Productivity with Windows 7-Based PCs, Introduces New ThinkPad SL Laptops for Small to Medium Businesses

Lenovo announced that it is now offering a broad portfolio of Think and Idea-branded PCs running the new Windows 7 operating system. Lenovo is also introducing two new ThinkPad laptops geared for the way small to medium businesses (SMB) work. Packed with performance and the little extras that make a big difference, the new ThinkPad SL410 and SL510 laptops feature crisp and clear 16:9 high definition screens, make voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) calls rich and seamless and sport a new look and feel with a matte-finish cover.

Lenovo has certified many of its Windows 7 PCs under the Lenovo Enhanced Experience program. This certification ensures the PCs provide powerful performance, rich multimedia and flexible ease of use. The combination of Windows 7 plus Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience certification represents a significant advancement in digital entertainment and personal productivity for consumers, small-to-medium business (SMB) and large enterprise customers.

“For three years, Microsoft and Lenovo engineers have worked tirelessly together to jointly create a PC experience that is better, faster, more stable and more secure,” said Rory Read, president and chief operating officer, Lenovo. “This has been an unparalleled effort to integrate hardware and software from the ground up. As a result, we’ve created new innovations in touch technology, improved speed and performance across the board and developed a host of other enhancements that will make a meaningful difference to our customers worldwide.”

PCs That Work Hard and Play Hard for the SMB
The new ThinkPad SL laptops are the ideal technology companions for busy, on-the-go SMBs. Powered by Intel Core2Duo processors, these versatile laptops can power the next business meeting or help entertain off the clock. Along with their 16:9 screens, they support bright colors and reduced glare with VibrantView and Anti-glare technology. They also support HDMI and VGA output for high definition and standard external monitor displays. Using the two-finger multitouch touchpad, objects on the screen can be enlarged and minimized easily.

To stay connected 24/7 with business colleagues, family and friends, select models come with 3G connectivity. WiFi, Ethernet and optional Bluetooth technologies are also offered. For a strong VoIP experience, Lenovo increased the resolution of the cameras, added a microphone mute button and improved the digital microphone for clearer, crisper sounding conversations. The new laptops are also some of Lenovo’s greenest. They are the first ThinkPad laptops to use post-consumer recycled materials, helping keep waste out of landfills, and are rated EPEAT Gold and Energy Star 5.0.

To keep connected, protected and productive, the laptops come with Lenovo ThinkVantage Technologies (TVTs) – a set of hardware and software tools that are particularly helpful for SMB users who often do not have a dedicated IT staff. These tools help make critical activities like connecting to the Internet, managing passwords, recovering data and updating the laptop easy. The laptops include a number of TVTs such as Access Connections, Client Security Solutions, Rescue and Recovery, Presentation Director and System Update. For times when IT help is required, Lenovo’s SMB service offerings include Priority Support and Online Data Backup.

“Customers expect a great PC experience, and that’s what Microsoft and Lenovo have worked together to deliver,” said Steve Guggenheimer, corporate vice president, Original Equipment Manufacturer division, Microsoft Corp. “Our collaboration and joint innovations have resulted in faster and more reliable scenarios so customers can use their PCs in more new and exciting ways.”

A Faster, Richer and Easier Experience
Lenovo Enhanced Experience certified PCs deliver a faster, richer and easier computing experience over identical configuration, non-optimized PCs. Business customers can choose from Think-branded PCs including the ThinkPad T400s, R400 and X200 laptops, X200 Tablet, ThinkCentre A58 and M58 desktops and ThinkStation S20 and D20 workstations. Consumers can choose a variety of Idea-branded PCs including the IdeaPad Y550, Y450, U450, 450p, U350 and IdeaCentre A600 all-in-one desktop.

Enhanced Experience certified PCs start-up significantly faster than identical configuration, non-optimized Lenovo PCs. For example, on select Think PCs, Windows 7 starts up to 56 percent faster compared to running Windows XP or Windows Vista, and shuts down in as little as five seconds.[1] The PCs also include multimedia enhancements and easy system maintenance tools on Idea PCs, and performance-optimized ThinkVantage Technologies for advanced productivity and security on Think PCs. For example, Enhanced Experience certified PCs are giving customers a new way to reach out and touch technology with optional multitouch screens on the ThinkPad X200 Tablet and T400s laptop. Equipped with SimpleTap, users can easily manipulate hardware functions through the touch screen. More information on Enhanced Experience can be found here.

Pricing and Availability
The ThinkPad SL410 and 510 laptops are available immediately through business partners, retailers including Tiger Direct, Fry’s, Amazon.com, newegg.com and select Best Buy stores (for the SL410 laptop) and www.lenovo.com. Models start at approximately $529.

Lenovo Delivers On Vision for Greener Computing with New ThinkVision Monitors

Lenovo Delivers On Vision for Greener Computing with New ThinkVision Monitors
ThinkVision L2251x Wide Monitor First in Industry to Achieve TCO Certified Edge

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) unveiled five new ThinkVision monitors that advance “green” design and usability while providing an unmatched visual-rich experience. The new line-up includes Lenovo’s flagship ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor, the company’s most environmentally-responsible monitor for its use of recycled plastics, low power consumption and first PC monitor to be TCO Certified Edge. As Lenovo’s greenest monitors yet, the new ThinkVision L1711p, L1951p Wide, L2250p Wide, L2251p Wide and L2251x Wide extend Lenovo’s environmental product commitment to “Reduce. Reuse. and Recycle.” All the new monitors are TCO Certified, EPEAT Gold Rated[1] and are more than 50 percent more energy-efficient than previous models, exceeding the Energy Star 5.0 criteria.

“By establishing high standards for environmental responsibility and usability for PC monitors, TCO Certified Edge is helping encourage manufacturers to produce and customers to adopt greener technology,” said Tom Shell, vice president, Visuals Business Unit, Lenovo. “TCO Certified Edge products like the ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor illustrate how designing for energy and materials efficiency helps the environment and customers’ IT budgets.”

“As the first PC company to achieve TCO Certified Edge for its L2251x Wide monitor, Lenovo leads the industry in a number of areas including reduced electromagnetic emissions and low usage of sensitive materials,” said Sören Enholm, president, TCO Development. “Lenovo has gone the extra mile to achieve TCO Display 5.0 certification for all of its new monitors, illustrating a commitment to offering customers more choices for innovative green technology that also delivers on performance, visual quality and ease of use.”

Reduce.
As the first TCO Certified Edge monitor, the ThinkVision L2251x Wide meets the strictest levels of ergonomics, safety and environmental attributes. For example, it uses only 21 watts of power during operation, which is significantly lower than the average 49 watts of power consumed by monitors in this class. The ThinkVision L2251x Wide features an ambient light and proximity sensor to further lower power consumption in addition to the standard low-voltage white LED display in all the new models. If the monitor industry standardized on white LED technology, a total of nearly 30 million tons of CO2 could potentially be avoided by 2013. To help conserve even more power, proximity sensors on the L2251x Wide turn the screen off when a user steps away, helping to save up to an additional 10 percent of power consumption a year.

The ThinkVision L2251x Wide reduces sensitive materials by using a mercury-free panel and low halogen components. Lenovo has also reduced packaging materials by up to 44 percent on select models.

Reuse.
The L2251x Wide chassis parts are made of 65 percent post consumer recycled plastics with no virgin plastics. With this achievement, it contains the highest amount of post consumer recycled plastics for monitors listed in the EPEAT registry[8]. The new monitor is shipped in more than 90 percent recycled packaging, and for the first time, Lenovo is including a reusable protective bag as part of the packaging to further reduce plastics use.

Recycle.
Lenovo provides a number of PC recycling options worldwide. Consumers in the U.S. can receive rewards for recycling if their old PC has residual value. Lenovo also offers Asset Recovery Services for business customers that provides computer take-back, data destruction, refurbishment and recycling. Additional Asset Recovery services include inventory, value assessment, on-site de-installation and data encryption.

Visual-Rich Performance
The new monitors present vivid images fast by offering up to 1680×1050 screen resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a five millisecond response time. DisplayPort compatibility on select models also lets users easily work on their laptop or desktop via the monitor. The ThinkVision 2551x Wide features a built-in webcam for clear video conferencing and up to four high-speed USB ports for added flexibility and expansion.

Pricing and Availability
The Lenovo ThinkVision L1951p Wide, L2250p Wide and L2251p Wide monitors will be available beginning October 23 for $239.99, $249.99 and $259.99, respectively. The Lenovo ThinkVision L1711p monitor will be available beginning November 6 for $229.99, and the ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor will be available in November for $299.99. The monitors will be available through Lenovo business partners and www.lenovo.com.

Lenovo Delivers On Vision for Greener Computing with New ThinkVision Monitors

Lenovo Delivers On Vision for Greener Computing with New ThinkVision Monitors

Lenovo (HKSE: 0992) unveiled five new ThinkVision monitors that advance “green” design and usability while providing an unmatched visual-rich experience. The new line-up includes Lenovo’s flagship ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor, the company’s most environmentally-responsible monitor for its use of recycled plastics, low power consumption and first PC monitor to be TCO Certified Edge. As Lenovo’s greenest monitors yet, the new ThinkVision L1711p, L1951p Wide, L2250p Wide, L2251p Wide and L2251x Wide extend Lenovo’s environmental product commitment to “Reduce. Reuse. and Recycle.” All the new monitors are TCO Certified, EPEAT Gold Rated[1] and are more than 50 percent more energy-efficient than previous models, exceeding the Energy Star 5.0 criteria.[2]

“By establishing high standards for environmental responsibility and usability for PC monitors, TCO Certified Edge is helping encourage manufacturers to produce and customers to adopt greener technology,” said Tom Shell, vice president, Visuals Business Unit, Lenovo. “TCO Certified Edge products like the ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor illustrate how designing for energy and materials efficiency helps the environment and customers’ IT budgets.”

“As the first PC company to achieve TCO Certified Edge for its L2251x Wide monitor, Lenovo leads the industry in a number of areas including reduced electromagnetic emissions and low usage of sensitive materials,” said Sören Enholm, president, TCO Development. “Lenovo has gone the extra mile to achieve TCO Display 5.0 certification for all of its new monitors, illustrating a commitment to offering customers more choices for innovative green technology that also delivers on performance, visual quality and ease of use.”

Reduce.
As the first TCO Certified Edge monitor, the ThinkVision L2251x Wide meets the strictest levels of ergonomics, safety and environmental attributes. For example, it uses only 21 watts of power during operation, which is significantly lower than the average 49 watts of power consumed by monitors in this class[3]. The ThinkVision L2251x Wide features an ambient light and proximity sensor to further lower power consumption in addition to the standard low-voltage white LED display in all the new models. If the monitor industry standardized on white LED technology, a total of nearly 30 million tons of CO2 could potentially be avoided by 2013.[4] To help conserve even more power, proximity sensors on the L2251x Wide turn the screen off when a user steps away, helping to save up to an additional 10 percent of power consumption a year.[5]

The ThinkVision L2251x Wide reduces sensitive materials by using a mercury-free panel and low halogen components.[6] Lenovo has also reduced packaging materials by up to 44 percent on select models.[7]

Reuse.
The L2251x Wide chassis parts are made of 65 percent post consumer recycled plastics with no virgin plastics. With this achievement, it contains the highest amount of post consumer recycled plastics for monitors listed in the EPEAT registry[8]. The new monitor is shipped in more than 90 percent recycled packaging, and for the first time, Lenovo is including a reusable protective bag as part of the packaging to further reduce plastics use.

Recycle.
Lenovo provides a number of PC recycling options worldwide. Consumers in the U.S. can receive rewards for recycling if their old PC has residual value. Lenovo also offers Asset Recovery Services for business customers that provides computer take-back, data destruction, refurbishment and recycling. Additional Asset Recovery services include inventory, value assessment, on-site de-installation and data encryption.

Visual-Rich Performance
The new monitors present vivid images fast by offering up to 1680×1050 screen resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a five millisecond response time. DisplayPort compatibility on select models[9] also lets users easily work on their laptop or desktop via the monitor. The ThinkVision 2551x Wide features a built-in webcam for clear video conferencing and up to four high-speed USB ports for added flexibility and expansion.

Pricing and Availability
The Lenovo ThinkVision L1951p Wide, L2250p Wide and L2251p Wide monitors will be available beginning October 23 for $239.99, $249.99 and $259.99, respectively. The Lenovo ThinkVision L1711p monitor will be available beginning November 6 for $229.99, and the ThinkVision L2251x Wide monitor will be available in November for $299.99. The monitors will be available through Lenovo business partners and www.lenovo.com.
