Infotech Lead America: Lenovo has priced its new laptop PC — ThinkPad S431 — at $699.
The ThinkPad S431 running on Windows 8 offers 15 percent faster processor speed than previous generations.
“The progressive design of our ThinkPad S431 will help small businesses impress their customers,” said Jerry Paradise, executive director, Think Business Group.
The S431 features Lenovo OneLink technology, which allows users to connect to the ThinkPad OneLink Dock with a single cable for dedicated video, additional USB 3.0 ports and gigabit Ethernet, all while powering the system.
The ThinkPad S431 comes with a multi-finger touchscreen that makes swiping, selecting apps and resizing images a breeze – allowing Windows 8 to be used as intended. The display features 180-degree open angle that lets users interact with the laptop in a number of usage modes and improves the overall touch experience.
The ThinkPad S431 is powered by Intel 3rd generation Core processors, making it 15 percent faster than its predecessor with up to nine hours of battery life. With up to 8 GB of memory and 500 GB of storage, users don’t have to sacrifice responsiveness for performance. The S431 can store up to 150,000 MP3s or 250 full-length feature films.
