Lenovo Expands Notebook, All-In-One Lines

has introduced two notebooks and an
all-in-one PC into its consumer line.

The notebooks fall under Lenovo’s G
series and will ship next month, while
the C315 all-in-one will be available one
month later.

The G-series entries consist of the G455
and G555. These have the same feature set,
but the G455 has a 14-inch display and the
G555 has a slightly larger 15-inch LCD.

The general specifications include
AMD Turion II dual-core processors and
ATI Radeon HD integrated graphics. Each
has a newly designed ergonomic keyboard
and Lenovo’s Energry Management 5.0
software, one-touch backup, a repair and
recovery utility, and Veriface facial-recognition
security software that uses a camera
to log a person onto the computer.

The G455 has a $499 starting price,
and the G555 will have a slightly higher,
but as yet undecided price tag, the
company said.

The C315 will be made available with
a variety of AMD dual-core processors,
4GB of memory, and a 20-inch display
has touchscreen capability. The computer
will come bundled with a suite of
touch-optimized titles. They are:

• PowerCinema lets users use multitouch
gestures like panning, flicking,
rotating and zooming to preview photos
and videos.

• Photo AutoCollage everages multitouch
gestures for photo organization
and also automatically detects the main
focus of a photo and automatically creates
photo collages.

• VeriTouch lets users enter their
log-in sequence by touch.

The C315 is expected to carry a $649
suggested retail.
