ThinkPad L Series - L530
Lenovo gave a 2012 update to its L Series ThinkPad notebooks, superseding the L420 and L520 with the 14in L430 and 15.6in L530 (pictured) Ivy-Bridge toting laptops.
Up to Core i7, the series offers up to 6GB memory, 128GB SSD, USB 3.0, optical drive, Windows 7 and up to 13.5 hours of battery life.
The L Series is touted as a ‘green’ line, thanks to the use of recycled materials, utilised in the laptop’s CD cover, palm rests and top/bottom case. It also boasts less power usage due to LED-backlit displays and the energy settings-controller Power Manager.
It retails for $1149.
