Lenovo Introduces 11 PCs at CES

Eight new IdeaPad laptops and three new IdeaCentre desktops greet attendees of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

In Las Vegas last week, inside its booth at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo unveiled 11 new IdeaPad laptops and IdeaCentre desktops.

The new IdeaPad laptop PCs (the S10-3t, S10-3, Y460, Y560, G460, G560, V460, and V360) and IdeaCentre desktop PCs (the A300, C310, and K320) all make up the latest update to Lenovo’s consumer products lineup.

Liu Jun, Lenovo’s senior vice president, Idea Product Group, says the new additions “showcase Lenovo’s forward-thinking innovations.”

“Our new Idea PCs are the next step in our exciting new worldwide product portfolio designed,” Jun says.

IdeaCentre A300
Lenovo has re-launched the all-in-one desktop form factor with the IdeaCentre A300.

The IdeaCentre A300 features the so-called Lenovo Enhanced Experience certification, which aims to deliver an optimized boot and shutdown process, rich multimedia capabilities, and easy system maintenance tools.

With up to Intel Core 2 Duo processing, the A300 comes with applications for a TV-like experience, including CamSuite software for enhanced facial tracking and image effects via the desktop’s integrated web camera.

The A300 has a depth of just 18.5 mm for its 21.5-inch full HD LED panel. Standard accessories include wireless Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and it supports HDMI in/out for connecting to other High-Definition devices like a TV.

The A300 also includes integrated high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi and Lenovo Rescue System software to recover data if a document is lost or becomes corrupt.

IdeaPad S10-3t and S10-3
Lenovo’s new IdeaPad S10-3t and S10-3 netbooks combine portability with the latest technologies.

Lenovo calls its S10-3t the “industry’s first multitouch capacitive convertible netbook tablet.”

It is built with Lenovo’s NaturalTouch responsive fingertip touchscreen technology. Its 10.1-inch screen can swivel 180 degrees and fold over to transform into a touch tablet.

With up to Intel Atom N470 processors and 320 GB HDD memory storage, IdeaPad S10-3t, and S10-3 netbooks offer a rich audio experience with stereo speakers and Dolby Headphone audio.

Both the S10-3t and the S10-3 feature DirectShare, which enables users to quickly and easily synchronize files with another laptop without having to connect to the Internet. The new Quick Start 2.0’s ‘instant on’ function helps users quickly access applications and the Web in only seconds and without booting the Windows desktop OS.

IdeaPad Y460 and Y560 Laptops
The 14-inch Y460 and 15.6-inch Y560 multimedia laptop feature high-definition widescreens, making them ideal for mobile entertainment.

Both the Y460 and Y560 include Lenovo’s new innovative Enhanced Experience RapidDrive technology, which combines SSD and HDD storage solutions to deliver even faster Windows 7 boot-up times and significantly improve application performance.

Lenovo’s so-called Enhanced Experience for Windows 7 is a unique Lenovo certification that delivers an optimized boot-up and shutdown process, rich multimedia capabilities, and easy system maintenance tools.

The Y460 and Y560 will be available with JBL-designed speakers and Dolby Home Theater surround sound.

With up to Intel Core i7 processing (featuring Intel Turbo Boost Technology for delivering extra GHz), the Y460 and Y560 feature the Lenovo Energy Management 5.0 for extended battery life and long-term battery durability, as well as lower noise output through dynamic fan control. Switchable Graphics on the Y560 and Y460 allow users to further extend battery life by toggling between performance and energy-efficient modes.

Additional features on the Y460 and Y560 include SlideNav intelligent touch-sensitive slide bar application for easy desktop navigation, OneKey Theatre II audio-visual controls; and an Ambient Light Sensor that automatically adjusts the PC screen brightness based on the user’s distance from the display.

Lenovo C310
The C310 includes a 20-inch high-definition 16:9 widescreen display and Lenovo NaturalTouch Panel responsive fingertip touch screen technology. It also includes Lenovo’s IdeaTouch, a suite of touch-optimized multimedia applications, and VeriTouch software.

With up to Intel Atom 330 Dual Core processing, 4 GB of memory, a discrete graphics card, and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 512 MB, the C310 is designed for entertainment media.

IdeaCentre K320
For gamers and those that require superior graphics performance, Lenovo’s new IdeaCentre K320 desktop is a PC equipped to power some of the most intensive programs.

The K320 includes the Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, enthusiast-level graphics with select models (offering up to ATI Radeon HD5970 2 GB), and up to two RAID-configured hard drives.

With its front-mounted Power Control Switch, K320 users can choose between performance, dynamic, and silent operating modes, with halo lighting settings that match.

The K320 also sports up to 8 GB DDR3 memory, 1 TB HDD storage, and a single button to quickly copy USB drive contents to the desktop HDD.

The IdeaCentre K320 also comes equipped with Bright Vision technology, which automatically adjusts screen brightness based on the user’s proximity and surrounding light conditions.

Lenovo G460 and G560
Other new additions to the Idea product lineup include the G460 and G560 laptops for mainstream consumers.

The G460 and G560 feature the latest Intel core processors with Intel Turbo Boost Technology and up to 8 GB of DDR3 memory and 500 GB of HDD storage.

The G460 and G560 are available in 14- and 15.6-inch 16:9 widescreen high-definition LED backlight displays. They also come with HD graphics support and HDMI.

With the Lenovo Enhanced Experience certification for Windows 7, the models feature faster boot-up and shutdown times, rich multimedia capabilities, and simple system maintenance tools.

Additional features include Lenovo Energy Management 5.0, long-term battery durability, and lower noise output through a dynamic fan control.

Both models also come with the OneKey Rescue System, a one-touch document backup, repair, and recovery tool, as well as VeriFace face recognition for logon.

IdeaPad V360 and V460
Lenovo has also announced two new products for the SOHO market for small office and home-based businesses with the IdeaPad V360 13.3-inch and IdeaPad V460 14-inch laptops.

These products are designed for the ‘one to nine’ segment of the SMB market. The V460 and V360 come with Switchable Graphics that enables users to switch between performance modes for longer battery life as well as OneKey Rescue System for quick and easy data recovery with anti-virus protection.
