Lenovo flaunts ThinkPad with 30 hour battery life

Charge of the Light Brigade

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.

Weighing in at a mere 1.8kg, the T420s has a 1600 x 900 HD display, switchable graphics and a 720p webcam. The company claim it's the first business-class notebook to feature Dolby Home Theatre v4 sound.

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