Lenovo Unveils ThinkPad Hybrid Laptop and Company's First Business Ultrabook at CES


Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop, the ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook, and a mew portfolio of small-to-medium business (SMB) laptops.

The ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop is combining the thin, light and performance benefits of its predecessor - the X1 - with double the battery life, up to 10 hours, via the hybrid's Instant Media Mode, powered by a second processor and operating system.

The hybrid doubles as a second PC thanks to its battery-stretching Instant Media Mode (IMM). IMM includes a Qualcomm dual core processor, up to 16 GB of memory and a custom Linux-based operating system. To switch to IMM from Windows, users simply click on an icon on the laptop's home screen. With IMM, the laptop operates much like a smart phone, remaining turned on and requiring fewer charging sessions.

Via IMM, users can watch videos, view photos, listen to music and browse the web while preserving battery life. The ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop also includes Rapid Charge, technology that charges the battery up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.

Measuring less than 0.6-inches and weighing less than four pounds, the 13.3-inch ThinkPad X1 Hybrid goes heavy on performance by doubling the CPU performance and quadrupling the graphics performance of previous Lenovo 13-inch laptops. The hybrid comes equipped with choices of the latest Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors and the Windows 7 operating system.

Business features include optional mobile broadband, a high definition display that includes Corning Gorilla Glass and a high definition web camera and microphones for video and voice calling. It also supports Intel vPro3 technology, encrypted hard drives with remote management support and a fingerprint reader. The laptop also features Dolby Home Theater v4 sound, an HDMI port and Intel Wireless Display technology to connect and stream 1080p video wirelessly to a TV or projector.

Lenovo's first business ultrabook, the ThinkPad T430u, equips business users with the same thin and light designs found in consumer ultrabooks without sacrificing business-class performance, and it comes at a mainstream price starting at $849.

The ThinkPad T430u ultrabook borrows some of the elements typically found on premium laptops, such as a matte finish that's soft to the touch and an aluminum top cover that complement its small - less than 0.8-inches and less than four pound - frame. It also sports ThinkPad's new modern and minimalist island-style keyboard.

The 14-inch laptop has business-primed features including:

- Choices of the latest Intel Core processors and Intel integrated or NVIDIA graphics
- Choice of SSD storage or up to 1 TB of HD storage
- Up to six hours of battery life
- Quick resume and fast boot up
- Lenovo Solution Center powered by Intel Small Business Advantage, a set of productivity and security tools helping to enable overnight energy savings and automatic patch updates

The ThinkPad X1 Hybrid laptop and ThinkPad T430u ultrabook will be available starting in Q2 2012 and Q3 2012, respectively. Pricing for models starts at approximately $1,599 and $849, respectively.

New ThinkPad Edge Laptops

Lenovo also today announced its new portfolio of small-to-medium business (SMB) laptops loaded with business technology and personal lifestyle computing features. The portfolio includes the premium ThinkPad Edge S Series, the mainstream ThinkPad Edge E Series and entry-level laptops in the essential Lenovo B Series, available in select markets.

The chic ThinkPad Edge S430 laptop features the latest Intel Core processors and Thunderbolt Technology. The ThinkPad Edge 11, 13, 14 and 15-inch laptops include new technologies like Lenovo Solution Center to solve common IT tasks, while simultaneously addressing users' entertainment needs with rich visual and deluxe audio features.

The 14-inch laptop also comes packed with a DVD burner or a second hard drive for up to 1 TB of storage, choices of Intel integrated or NVIDIA Optimus graphics, Dolby Home Theatre v4, USB 3.0 ports and Intel Thunderbolt Technology.

The new ThinkPad Edge 14-inch E430 and 15-inch E530 laptops give SMBs the freedom to choose their level of performance with options of the latest Intel Core processors or AMD Fusion APUs (on the E435 and E535 laptops) with choices of integrated or discrete graphics. The laptops also feature fast boot up, up to 1 TB of storage that can be combined with solid state drive storage, USB 3.0 ports and a high resolution web camera. The laptop models with the latest Intel Core processors also include Lenovo Solution Center powered by Intel Small Business Advantage. The smaller 11.6-inch ThinkPad Edge and 13.3-inch laptops give SMBs the ability to optimize their performance and mobility with the latest Intel Core processors on the E130 and E330 or AMD Vision Accelerated processors on the E135 and E335 laptops.

The Lenovo B Series laptops are equipped with choices of the latest Intel Core processors (on the B480 and B580 laptops) or AMD Fusion APUs (on the B485 and B585 laptops) along with integrated or discrete graphics at prices starting at just $499. Users can also choose up to 1 TB of storage, USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI out port and 4-in-1 multicard reader. Like the other laptops with the latest Intel Core processors, the B Series laptops come with Lenovo Solution Center powered by Intel Small Business Advantage.

ThinkPad Edge E130/135, E330/335 and Lenovo B480/485, B580/585 Series laptops will be available only in select markets, while the ThinkPad Edge E430/435, E530/535 laptops will be available worldwide starting in April. The ThinkPad Edge S430 laptop will be available in June in select markets. Pricing for models starts at approximately $549 for the 14/15-inch ThinkPad Edge laptops, $499 for the Lenovo B Series laptops and $749 for the ThinkPad S430 laptop.
