Lenovo Grabs Business Over Consumer With SMB ThinkPads, ThinkCentres & Tablets

X

Lenovo is set to make a splash in the business market over the next month with the roll out of new ThinkPad notebooks and the Australian release of its own tablet.The 10.1-inch ThinkPad Tablet has just gone on sale overseas this Tuesday and is slated for an official Australian release in September.

Lenovo’s tablet contender faces up against its heavy competition in similar stead to its ThinkPad notebooks – the design is bland but the focus is on performance suited to business users rather than overreaching to grab the whole consumer space.

They’re not the first to claim the business label, with Fujitsu and Research In Motion each recently coming out with ‘professional’ and ‘business’ tablets. The ThinkPad Tablet differentiates (while still being an Android tablet) with an attachable folio keyboard, stylus and physical button set.

This tablet is preceded by a slew of new business releases, including today’s launch of the entry-level desktop ThinkCentre M71e.

 

The M71e gets its business tag from Lenovo’s ‘Enhanced Experience 2.0’ badge that includes fast boot-up times and a range of security settings, an Intel Core i7 processor and multi-monitor support.

There’s an optional solid state drive (SSD) for faster performance than the typical hard disk drive, and six external USB slots are thrown in to boost connectivity.

As an entry level unit, the M71e starts at a modest $689, stacking higher as options like the SSD are thrown in.

On the small-to-medium business front, Lenovo announced the ThinkPad Edge E320 notebook earlier this week, with prices starting at $499.
