Lenovo Launches New Models with Improved Technology, Better Performance and more Colors
Lenovo launched the latest additions to its Think and Idea brands, equipped with 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ processors as well as Lenovo Enhanced Experience 3 (EE 3)  for Windows 7. From the stylish and powerful U Series Ultrabook™ to the newest additions to the popular IdeaPad and IdeaCentre portfolio there is something for everyone. For those who combine their work and home computing, the newest ThinkPad Edge laptops and ThinkCentre All-in-Ones blend business-class performance with image-conscious design.
These latest products certified with EE3 feature improved Windows start-up performance and other optimization features. Lenovo’s RapidBoot technology uses optimized processes and hardware settings to boot up an average of 40 percent faster than a typical Windows 7 PC. They also boast enhanced digital audio and video features for richer sound quality and crisper and clearer video.
Jeerawut Wongpimonporn, Country General Manager, Lenovo said: “Lenovo’s focus on building well-designed computers with powerful functions continues that trend with our latest products. We continue to develop innovations in our technology, such as working with Microsoft to improve Lenovo performance on Windows 7 through Enhanced Experience 3, and our design, as seen with our newest Ultrabook devices. Seen as an industry game changer, Ultrabooks shift not only the way people think about laptop design but also how much performance technology can be packed into such a thin, light design. The Thai public are becoming more sophisticated in their technology purchases and we are confident that these additions will improve their experience.”
