A pair of new products aimed at business users
Lenovo, the world's largest supplier of PCs, added two new products to its portfolio today , both of which are intended for business users. They include the ThinkPad 10, a 10-inch premium multimode business tablet, and the redesigned ThinkStation P300, an entry-level workstation with an "intuitive new purposeful design" that's supposed to be easy to carry and deploy.
Starting with the former, Lenovo said it constructed the ThinkPad 10 using premium aluminum and Gorilla glass. It can be used in four different modes -- Tablet, Stand, Laptop, and Desktop. The latter configurations require an optional ThinkPad Tablet Dock or USB 3.0 docking station.
Other features include a quad-core Intel Atom processor, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, 64GB of 128GB of internal storage, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera, and Windows 8.1 64-bit.
Moving on, the ThinkStation P300 no longer sports a "bulky handle." Instead, it uses red touch points and an extended lip design in the front and back to make it easy to carry. On the inside, it's available with the latest Intel Xeon E3-1200v3 product family as well as 4th Generation Intel Core processors and ECC memory support.
The ThinkPad 10 will be available in June starting at $599; the ThinkStation P300 will also debut in June and starting at $729 in tower and SFF models.
