Lenovo’s New ThinkPad Line Comes with a Better Battery, Processor and Screen
The ThinkPad has been "the" professional’s laptop ever since it was introduced by IBM back in 1992. Ever since, the notebook specially designed for business and professional use has been getting better and better every year. This year, the ThinkPad’s maker, Lenovo, has introduced a new line of ThinkPad laptops that have better screen, processor and longer battery life.
