by Reads (6,099)

Just in time for Earth Day, Lenovo launched its new L-series ThinkPad line. This new model contains up to 30% recycled post consumer content in its construction; items like old water jugs and used IT equipment comprise parts such as the LCD cover, palm rests, and case halves. In total the L512 laptop uses 18% post consumer content, more than any other industry model.

Both the 14-inch L412 and 15-inch L512 offer HD LED-Backlit displays, Intel Core i3 and i5 processors, 8-hour battery life estimates and ATI Mobility Radeon HD5145 or Intel GMA HD graphics options. Battery configurations include 4-, 6- and 9-cell batteries for both models. Model pricing for Lenovo’s eco-friendly ThinkPads starts at $649 with units starting to ship mid-May.
