Lenovo Updates Thinkpads & Reveals New L Series

You have to admire the Thinkpad (if you don't, you should). It is a line of laptops that has long known exactly what it wants to be and stuck rigidly (and, in general, brilliantly) to that mission statement. So if you're looking for a durable, well made, thoroughly professional machine that sheds a little of its reassuringly expensive label then today Lenovo has something for you...

The company has announced its high-end T Series (the 14.1in 'T410i' and 'T410si' and 15.6in 'T510i') will now all offer the more wallet friendly options of Intel Core i3-330M (2.13GHz) CPUs. On top of this is a wider array of RAM options stretching now from 2GB right up to a whopping 8GB of DDR3 and upgraded two megapixel webcams are now standard across the line.

Elsewhere the likes of integrated or discrete graphics, HDD or SSD storage, four, six and nine cell battery options, a fingerprint reader and more can be specified. While, needless to say (and Riyad will back me up on this one), Thinkpads have the best keyboards in the business. Pricing at this stage is unknown, and the options models are yet to go live on Lenovo's site, but don't expect to wait long.

In related news Lenovo's latest laptop roadmap has also leaked out and while much of it has already been discussed (such as the Edge and X100e) what we do learn are an X200 upgrade (the 'X201'), and an upgraded W700 (yes, the 'W701') will be here soon. Furthermore, and most interestingly, a new 'L Series' looks set to replace the venerable R Series as the new corporate mainstream model.

All good stuff, but Lenovo can we please, please, please have a successor to my favourite ultraportable laptop of all time: the (now 18 month old) Thinkpad X301...
