Internet Security Threat Report 2014

IBM has refreshed its entire range of ThinkPads and has promised a low-end, retail product called the ThinkPad i which it will launch in November and sell over the Web as well as in shops. It is also launching an additional product for the corporate marketplace, the 390. Sam Dusi, the IBM US segment product manager for the ThinkPad range, said that the 380, the 560, the 600 and the 770 were all undergoing a product refresh. The 390, like the ThinkPad i, will be introduced in early November, he said. Big Blue will now offer the 380 with bigger TFT screens, the latest Intel PII mobile chips, and with 4Gb drives and 32Mb of memory as standard. But eventually, the 390 will replace the 380, Dusi said. It is maintaining the 380 because many large corporations have standardised on it, he said. The 560, like the other ThinkPads in the range, will be offered with PII/mobile chips, come with 4Gb and 6.4Gb hard drives, and will have either 32Mb or 64Mb of memory. The TFT screen will be 12.1in. The ultra slim 600 ThinkPad will now be offered in three configurations, with enhanced hard drive sizes, 13.3in TFT screens and at the high end, the 600E will have DVD, TV out, and have a 6Gb hard drive with 64Mb of DRAM. Big Blue now claims a first with its high end 770 ThinkPad. It will now display 1280 x 1024 images on its 13.7in TFT screen, come with an 8Mb hard drive and 128Mb of memory, and with options for DVD, MPEG-2 and video IO. ®
