Lenovo is celebrating Earth Day this year (which is in another week) with the release of their eco-friendly ThinkPad L Series: 14- and 15-inch notebooks that contain more recycled material than any other. The 15-inch version is made from 18% discarded office water jugs and used IT equipment, the highest on the market.

They’re also eco-netbooks that you can actually use, with Core i3 or i5 processor options , otionaly ATI Radeon HD 5145 graphics, up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, a 500 GB HDD, 4 USB ports, a 7-in-1 card reader, and a listed eight hours of battery life with a six-cell battery. Those specs are increasingly standard for this class of laptop, but at least you’re not sacrificing performance while you do your very very very small consumer-driven part to save the planet.

The drawbacks: the 14-inch L412 weighs in at 5.22 lbs with a six-cell battery, with the L512 adding an extra half pound of bulk. That’s a little heavy compared to other Core i5 notebooks out there. And while the starting price of $600 has immediate appeal, remember that that’s going to land you with a 1.86GHz Celeron processor; you’re going to have to pony up extra for the super-speedy Intel Core guts. But hey: no good deed goes unpunished, right?

New Lenovo ThinkPad L Series Laptops Help Businesses “Do More, Save More”
Highest Amounts of Recycled Content and Enhanced VoIP Web Conferencing
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – April 20, 2010: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today is introducing a new Series of ThinkPad laptops – the L Series. Designed for business, government and education customers, the ThinkPad L412 and L512 laptops feature high performance with the latest Intel processing technologies, military tough durability and strong web conferencing features in an affordable laptop. Additionally, the laptops are the greenest on the market by integrating the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content.
Business-Focused Performance
The laptops come with technologies employees and students need to be productive in their daily work, like:
Choices of the latest Intel Core i3 and i5 processors with Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading technology 16:9 HD antiglare displays on the 14-inch L412 and 15-inch L512 Choices of Intel integrated or ATI Mobility Radeon graphics
3G/4G wireless connectivity options with Gobi 2000 module support for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Multitouch touchpads Up to 8 hours of battery life1
Expansion with 4 USB ports/1 powered, combo eSATA/USB port, support for DisplayPort and VGA Windows 7 with Lenovo Enhanced Experience featuring up to 57% faster bootup and shutdown time2
The laptops also have the enterprise features businesses and IT administrators require such as global availability, image stability, a three year battery warranty and docking. They also include ThinkVantage Technologies tools like Access Connections to make the computing experience more productive for users. The L Series laptops pass the tough test for withstanding the wear and tear of the office or the rigor of the field to give users long term value. They meet eight different military specification tests for high and low temperatures, vibration, altitude, dust and more.
“Today more than ever before, customers are looking to get more out of their PC technology,” said Dilip Bhatia, executive director, ThinkPad Product Marketing, Lenovo. “We designed the new L Series to give users the most important features for being productive like cutting-edge processing performance, long battery life and a VoIP-optimized design without sacrificing the reliability and durability ThinkPad is known for.”
Expanded Green Footprint
Lenovo continues to expand its emphasis on green design with the L Series. The laptops use up to 30 percent post consumer content from office water jugs and used IT equipment in parts like the LCD cover, palm rests and top/bottom case. The L512 laptop contains 18 percent post consumer content (PCC) total, making it the industry’s highest amount of PCC in a laptop.3 Each L Series laptop saves the equivalent of 10 plastic water bottles. Overall, Lenovo has used 42 million gross pounds of PCC since 2005 in Think-branded products.
Also, as part of the lifecycle design process, the laptops meet Energy Star 5.0 for high energy efficiency and are rated EPEAT Gold in the U.S. for their environmental attributes. The laptops are 40 percent more energy efficient than previous ThinkPad laptops, and users can deploy Lenovo’s Power Manager software tool to monitor and adjust their power settings. Additionally, the laptops are shipped in nearly 100 percent recycled packaging that can simply be thrown into a
customer’s recycling bin. Lenovo has committed to packaging reduction, recently reducing packaging material by 20 percent of yearly volume, saving an additional 10 paper coffee cups per box shipped.
Tailored for Web Conferencing
The L Series laptops are tailored for an excellent voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) experience. First, they offer the full range of connectivity options, from Ethernet and Bluetooth to WiFi, 3G and 4G. The laptops are also equipped with a high resolution camera that works well in low lighting conditions, like for conferences in hotel rooms. The camera even white balances automatically so conferences are more life-like.
A digital-array microphone with echo cancellation lets users conduct conferences even in noisy rooms. The speakers are placed directly underneath the screen and above the keyboard for rich sound quality. Hardware audio control keys – speaker mute and audio mute – are conveniently located to the left of the keyboard for easy access. And by pressing the shortcut Function + F6 hotkey combination, users can navigate a simple software interface to modify VoIP settings.
A Powerful Learning Platform
Built to withstand the heavy daily use in K12 and higher education, the ThinkPad L Series laptops are equipped with the technologies to get students through the school day. Beyond providing education-focused PC technology, Lenovo is committed to improving learning and increasing operational efficiency at all levels of academia through the Education Research Initiative (ERI). ERI joins hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and researchers from schools across the world to evaluate and quantify how technology can systemically improve education. As part of this research, the ThinkPad L Series will be deployed at institutions for student learning while promoting instructional innovation and data-driven decision making for faculty and administrators.
Pricing and Availability4
The ThinkPad L412 and L512 laptops are available starting in mid-May through www.lenovo.com and business partners. Pricing for models starts at approximately $649.

    Lenovo has indefinitely delayed the release of two of its most anticipated products, the Skylight smartbook and Ideapad U1 Hybrid. The latter was interesting in that it was a tablet and CULV ultrathin in one form-factor. Both concepts are now back on the drawing board to prepare for a relaunch using Android OS instead of
