Lenovo unveils ThinkPad laptop

2012-08-06 16:30

Beijing - Lenovo has unveiled a lighter, quicker ThinkPad notebook computer inspired by the convenience of tablets and smartphones.

The Chinese computer maker displayed the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon on Monday and said it would go on sale later this month.

A Lenovo vice president, Dilip Bhatia, said it will have a longer battery life and lighter weight. He said that was in response to demands by customers who want a tablet's convenience but need a notebook's wider range of functions.

Lenovo acquired the ThinkPad brand with IBM's personal computer unit in 2005. Lenovo passed Dell in 2011 to become the second-largest PC manufacturer after Hewlett-Packard.

    Any manufacturer that decides to produce a new laptop is just wasting their time especially with the new touch based windows 8.

      I am a programmer, and the laptop offersme the convenience to travel between customers - I use a lenovo touch screen to develop touch interfaces for web-applications! a tablet just simply does not offer all the things we developers require just yet!

      walter what are you saying ? Why should they use junkmail to sell the Lenova Lap-Tops? Do you realize that Lenova is the second biggest seller worldwide. I wonder why? Certainly not junk when they laugh all the way to the Bank. KA-CHING.
