Shiny Shiny’s sister site Tech Digest has headed over to IFA 2012 in Berlin this week to find out the latest from the biggest names in tech…
With the launch of Windows 8 looming large over much of what we’ve seen so far at IFA 2012, Lenovo are looking to get a head start with three new additions to their S Series laptop range.
While the the Lenovo S300, S400 and S405 laptops will arrive in the coming weeks with Windows 7 pre-loaded, owners of each will be given the option to make a free jump to Windows 8 when it lands on October 26th. Each of the S Series laptops have had close attention paid to their touchpads as a result, making them better prepared for the bevy of gesture controls set to land with Windows 8.
With all three models measuring 21.9mm thick and weighing 1.8kg with a 14-inch display, the differences lie with each laptop’s internal configuration.
The Lenovo S300 and S400 pack in either a 3rd generation i3 or i5 Intel core, leaving the S405 with AMD A8 quad-core APUs. The S405 also has the larger storage capacity at 1TB, while the S300 and S400 manage just 500GB.
Landing in red, pink and silver shades, prices start at £349 for the entry-level models.
