Looks like Lenovo has begun releasing laptops and computers with their own name on them. The Lenovo 3000 product family as it will be known is the first of the new products with a Lenovo name and a silver chassis.
“The new Lenovo 3000 product family embodies a distinct entrepreneurial persona by combining the most successful components of enterprise-level, ThinkPad-inspired technologies with the latest Lenovo innovations to create PCs users can depend on,” said Deepak Advani, senior vice president, and chief marketing officer, Lenovo. “Lenovo will offer the new PCs as the smart choice for today’s most savvy entrepreneurs, priced to fit the budgets and computing needs of even the smallest firms.”
Under the new line, you will see the Lenovo C Series of notebooks which compliments the company’s ThinkPad brand acquired from IBM.
Weighing in at 6.2 pounds, the new C100 offers complete connectivity features on select models, such as integrated 802.11 a/b/g wireless LAN, Bluetooth (select models) and 10/100 ethernet and modem, and multimedia capabilities, such as stereo speakers with an integrated microphone for playing and recording audio and an integrated combo or DVD recordable drive. At 1.3-inches thin, the C100 also incorporates a 3-in-1 multi-card reader for downloading digital pictures, four USB ports, and firewire and S-Video slots.
The C Series includes an Intel 915 GM Chipset with a choice of either Pentium M or Celeron M processors. Select models also feature Intel Centrino mobile technology. Mobile users will benefit from an 8-cell lithium-ion battery offering up to five hours of battery life and Lenovo’s industry-leading keyboard.
The Lenovo C Series will be available starting on the 23rd of February 2006. Prices for the C100 start at US$599.00.
