Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines said: “Very few brands are fortunate enough to become an industry icon with loyal fans. Lenovo’s commitment to innovation continues to deliver the best products in the industry and we’re excited to debut our business class Ultrabooks, the ThinkPad T430u and ThinkPad X1 Carbon, the pinnacle of our ongoing quest to push the boundaries on great design and engineering. These products meet the demand for extremely thin and light laptops with the performance users need to accomplish their professional and business goals.”
Powered by 3rd Generation Intel Core processors, the new ThinkPad Ultrabooks boot and wake up in a flash and offer impressive battery life, all in a secure and managed environment that business users require in today’s busy world.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon: Premier Ultrabook for business
The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the world’s lightest 14-inch Ultrabook, weighing less than three pounds. It is created for those who demand the highest levels of mobility, performance, entertainment and design.
While incredibly light, thanks to its carbon fiber construction, it retains the ThinkPad’s renowned durability for use in practically any environment. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon, in fact, passed eight US military tests for durability including low pressure, humidity, vibration, high and low temperature, temperature shock, dust, and physical shock.
To keep users up and running, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon provides eight hours of battery life and industry-best charge times with Lenovo RapidCharge technology. Equipped with optional 3G mobile broadband and hotspot technology, users can stay connected virtually anywhere, anytime.
Despite its thin design, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon delivers a rich user experience with a backlit keyboard that maintains the legendary ThinkPad reputation as the industry’s best for comfort and accuracy. The X1 Carbon also includes a multi-gesture glass surface touchpad, HD face-tracking camera, dual array microphones and Dolby-tuned audio for crisp and clear sound.
Business ready with Intel® vPro technology, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is among the first Ultrabooks to offer true corporate-level security and manageability. For expansion capabilities and to manage unsightly cables, users can dock it via Lenovo’s new USB 3.0 Dock. Additionally, Lenovo offers a variety of Service and Support packages such as custom imaging, extended warranties and accidental damage protection.
ThinkPad T430u: Performance for Small and Medium Business
The ThinkPad T430u Ultrabook powers the business and personal computing needs of today’s small-to-medium businesses. The ThinkPad T430u equips professionals with the same thin and light designs found in consumer ultrabooks without sacrificing business-class performance. Configurable with a unique combination of NVIDIA GeForce graphics and 1 TB of storage, the ThinkPad T430u provides powerful graphics capability and massive storage capacity -features rarely found in Ultrabooks.
At more than seven hours of battery life, the ThinkPad T430u provides full-day freedom from power cords. Since SMBs often do not have dedicated IT departments, the ThinkPad T430u comes with Lenovo Solution Center for Small Business, which includes Intel Small Business Advantage that provides hardware-based capabilities to improve productivity and enhance security. This diagnostic center helps users self manage backup and recovery, passwords, Internet connections, anti-virus software, firewall settings and devices. It also comes equipped with Lenovo Solution Center (LSC), a diagnostic and utility suite which provides a simple dashboard to view total system health and take preventive measures to avoid any potential downtime.
