Lenovo’s dependable line of business-oriented notebooks is receiving a few additions today. The Chinese firm rolled out five new models at IFA, touting what the company claims to be a new modernized design.  While the ThinkPad line has traditionally resisted change, these new models will boast a sleeker thinner design, with larger touchpads and an even color change, opting for “Graphite Black” over the ThinkPad’s standard black casing.  In addition to a new design, Lenovo will be ramping up the specs with the inclusion of Intel’s fourth generation Chipset and Lenovo’s new Power Bridge technology, which employs both an internal and a one-size fits all external battery that is interchangeable between all five new models. Despite all the changes, the new additions still appear to be Lenovo business-minded devices complete with TrackPoint nubs and round-bottom keys.
