RESEARCH TRIANGLE, N.C. —
Lenovo introduced two new multimedia laptops and a desktop this month.
The IdeaPad Y460p and Y560p are labeled highperformance notebooks by Lenovo. The former features a 14-inch display, while the latter sports a 15.6-inch screen.
Both have a $849 starting price and will ship on Jan. 11.
Each will be powered by a second-generation Intel Core processor, up to the Core i7 level, when they become available.
Other features include hard-drive capacity up to 750GB and a maximum of 8GB of DDR3 memory. Also included is 32GB of solid-state memory to help speed up the laptop’s performance.
The laptops also meet Lenovo’s Windows 7 Enhanced Experience certification that the company said provides 33 percent faster boot-up time and a shutdown time that is 50 percent quicker.
The models will be available with a choice of two interiors, metallic gray and white.
The IdeaCentre K330 desktop, $699 starting price and shipping early in 2011, will run on a series of Intel Core processors, up to the i7 with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.
It has 16GB of DDR3 memory and twin RAID-configured hard drives with up to 4TB of storage capacity.
The unit is equipped with three user-controlled power levels. These are: Turbo Red for high speed use, Auto Blue for regular operation and the Cool Green silent energy- saving mode. This is handled by adjusting fan and CPU speed.
The K330’s optical drive can be filled with either a Blu-ray or DVD drive; there is a TV tuner option and HD graphics support.
