Charge of the Light Brigade

The essential guide to IT transformation

Lenovo has unveiled the latest range of ThinkPads, which includes the T420s - a lightweight notebook with a battery life of up to 30 hours.

The PC maker revealed six models on Tuesday: the T420s, T420, T520, L420, L520 and W520. All come with better power management and voice calling features, with the latter boosted by dual array microphones and keyboard noise-reduction technology.

The highlight of the crop though is the T420s, which has a whopping battery life of 30 hours - achieved of course with an extended battery pack.

Available in the UK in March, the T420 will cost around £1100. ®
