Lenovo ThinkPad T420s laptop boots up in 10 seconds or less

Lenovo has engineered its popular, newly introduced ThinkPad T420s laptop to boot up in 10 seconds or less. As part of Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience (EE) 2.0 for Windows 7 program, the RapidBoot Extreme model has proprietary BIOS and hardware optimizations along with the Intel X25-M Solid State Drive for super startup capability. Most of Lenovo’s 2011 Think and Idea-branded PCs, such as the ThinkPad T420s laptop, are optimized under Lenovo’s EE 2.0 program launched earlier this year. EE 2.0 provides industry-leading startup/shutdown performance and other optimization features for Lenovo consumer and business PCs.

Lenovo’s IdeaPad Y570 laptop, coming in June, also features sub-10 second boot up.
