Lenovo announced the new ThinkPad L412 and L512 designed for business, government and education customers. Lenovo claimes that the 14-inch L412 and 15-inch L512 laptops are the greenest on the market by integrating the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content.
The L412 and L512 are powered by choices of Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and choices of Intel integrated or ATI Mobility Radeon graphics. Tailored for web conferencing and VoIP, these notebooks are equipped with a webcam and full range of connectivity options, from Ethernet and Bluetooth to WiFi, 3G and 4G. Other features include multitouch touchpad, an eSATA/USB combo port, DisplayPort, and up to 8 hours of battery life.
Lenovo’s ThinkPad L412 and L512 will be released in Mid-May starting at $649.
Lenovo continues to expand its emphasis on green design with the L Series. The laptops use up to 30 percent post consumer content from office water jugs and used IT equipment in parts like the LCD cover, palm rests and top/bottom case. The L512 laptop contains 18 percent post consumer content (PCC) total, making it the industry’s highest amount of PCC in a laptop.3 Each L Series laptop saves the equivalent of 10 plastic water bottles. Overall, Lenovo has used 42 million gross pounds of PCC since 2005 in Think-branded products.
