Lenovo announced its ThinkPad Edge 14-inch E425 and 15.6-inch E525 laptops for small-to-medium businesses (SMB).
The new ThinkPad Edge laptops simplify the overall computing experience for SMBs, starting with a slimmer, more polished design complemented by powerful, reliable technology with choices of the latest AMD processors. The new ThinkPad Edge laptops project a smart, polished image with new soft finishes available in color choices of heatwave red or midnight black with either an antiglare or glossy display. Nearly 13 percent slimmer than previous versions, the laptops can easily fit in a briefcase. The spill-resistant, island-style keyboard provides not only hours of comfortable typing but also contributes to the laptops’ clean, modern design.
The laptops are filled with a host of high performance technologies including AMD A-Series APUs with VISION Pro Technology for today’s Internet-focused and graphics-intensive business applications. The integrated AMD Radeon discrete graphics with dedicated video memory delivers eye-popping HD performance and blazing-fast parallel processing capabilities. The machines come with storage up to 750 GB and up to 8 GB of memory. Also, multimedia and expansion options with DVD burner, powered USB port, 4-in-1 media card reader, support for HDMI and optional fingerprint reader for convenient and secure log-in.
With the ThinkPad Edge laptops, users can get to work more quickly with 20 percent faster boot up, thanks to Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 2.0 (optimization for Windows 7 PCs). For a premium experience, the laptops come equipped with a lowlight sensitive web camera, noise suppressing keyboard, microphone mute key and the ThinkVantage Communications Utility 2.0. Also to easily manage wireless connections while traveling, users can conveniently close the laptop lid, and the PC will hold the wireless connection for several minutes. Users can even lock their PC with Lenovo’s AutoLock, which uses the camera to automatically detect when the user is away. Lenovo also included Rescue and Recovery on the laptops to help restore settings and data if it gets lost or corrupted.
