Lenovo shows off six Sandy Bridge-enabled ThinkPad notebooks Lenovo has unveiled six new Intel Sandy Bridge ThinkPad notebooks this week, some of which feature an incredible 30 hours of battery life, along with Dolby Home Theater v4, Nvidia Optimus graphic switching, and 'Instant Resume' for continuous wireless connectivity, says Beta.
The six models are the high-end T420 and T520, the mid-range L420 and L520, the ultrathin T420S, and the portable workstation for graphics-intensive applications, the W520.

All of the models will include a dual-mode videoconferencing microphone and 'Lenovo Turbo Boost' for faster PC performance.

Instant Resume was unveiled today along with the devices, a feature that will keep the Wi-Fi connection on for 99 minutes when the laptop is sleeping. The feature is meant for office users who want to move from an office to, say, a conference room, without losing their Wi-Fi connection after closing their notebook.

The T420, T520 and T420S each come with 9-cell batteries and additional 9-cell snap-on batteries, which together combine for 30 hours of battery life without the need for recharging.

Each of the T and W series models also include Nvidia Optimus for extra battery boost.

Most of the models will be available starting next month, with price tags ranging from $900-$1500.
