Lenovo refreshes the laptop ThinkPad T, L and W series

Lenovo is keen to impress with these three updated laptop series. All of them pack some serious punch, some more than others. We’re talking specs like the new i5 and i7 Intel processors, 1GB video RAM and even a 30-hour battery life. No, really!

To break it down here’s the first three from the T series – the Lenovo ThinkPad T420, T420s (14-inch) and T520 (15.6-inch). They’re getting upgraded processors (the Intel i5 and i7). The 14-inch T420 will boot up to 30% faster and the T420s will have up to 30-hours of battery life on each charge. This will be made possible by a 9-cell battery. The new T series will feature the NVIDIA Optimus graphics with the improved GeForce 4200M GPU and 1GB VRAM.

Next up it’s the L series with two new candidates. The 14-inch L420 and bigger 15.6-inch L520. To wrap up, both offer ATI Radeon HD 565 graphics and Intel i5 and i7 chips. The L420 will come with a 1366×768 resolution, while the L520 will have the much better 1600×900. Both laptops will feature the serious 8GB amount of RAM.

Finally, we have the 15-inch W520. This is the best of the lot. Offering i7 quad-core Intel CPU, NVIDIA Fermi Quattro 100M and 2000M graphics with as much as 2GB video RAM.

The Lenovo W520

All-new and updated, the T, L and W series laptops will also feature improved voice calling, special keyboard noise reduction and even a LED-lit microphone-off button. Price for the T series will start from $1329 for the T420s, $779 for the T420 and $909 for the T520. Both L-series laptops will start from $719 and the W520 should be the most expensive of them all. It starts from $1329.

Availability is scheduled from next month.
