LenovoThinkPad L series laptops-Intel inside and recycled content outside
Lenovo today introduced 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 . The Lenovo laptops are the greenest on the market by integrating the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content. 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. Each L Series laptop saves the equivalent of 10 plastic water bottles.
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. The laptops are shipped in nearly 100 percent recycled packaging that can simply be thrown into a customer’s recycling bin.
