Len­ovo’s lat­est line of Think work­sta­tions

The Sun (Malaysia) - - TECH TODAY -

LEN­OVO re­cently in­tro­duced two new en­tries in its line of work­sta­tions for the Malaysian mar­ket.

The first is the ThinkPad P40 Yoga mo­bile work­sta­tion which is touted as the world’s light­est in­de­pen­dent soft­ware ven­dor (ISV)-cer­ti­fied mo­bile work­sta­tion, and the other is the ThinkS­ta­tion P410 work­sta­tion, de­signed to be a pow­er­ful and cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion.

Built to bridge the gap be­tween a tablet and a fullfledged work­sta­tion, the ThinkPad P40 is a 13in con­vert­ible de­vice that sports a 2560x1440 res­o­lu­tion IPS dis­play, and is cou­pled with a sty­lus pen pow­ered by the Wa­com Ac­tive ES tech­nol­ogy.

Its In­tel 6th Gen­er­a­tion Core i7 CPU is paired with up to 16GB of RAM and cou­pled with Nvidia Quadro graph­ics, the P40 is tar­geted at cre­ative de­sign­ers, en­gi­neers and any­one look­ing for a por­ta­ble mo­bile de­vice with a sty­lus in­ter­face that can run pro­ces­sor-in­ten­sive soft­ware such as Au­todesk CAD and CAE, Au­todesk Fu­sion 360, and Au­todesk In­ven­tor.

The P40 is also Mil-SPECtested, which is a set of stan­dards de­signed to test dura­bil­ity, rugged­ness and re­li­a­bil­ity. These tests cover ex­treme en­vi­ron­men­tal vari­ables in­clud­ing tem­per­a­ture, pres­sure, dust, hu­mid­ity, and vi­bra­tions.

Ac­cord­ing to Len­ovo Asean busi­ness man­ager Ja­son Wong, the P40 has a bat­tery life of at least six hours. Its sty­lus also has a built-in bat­tery, and recharges it­self ev­ery time it is docked, last­ing up to four hours on a sin­gle charge.

Mean­while, the ThinkS­ta­tion P410 may be mar­keted as an en­try-level work­sta­tion but it still packs power with its In­tel Xeon E5-1600 v4 pro­ces­sors, with In­tel Turbo Max 3.0 Tech­nol­ogy, that are cer­ti­fied to run Au­todesk’s 3D de­sign soft­ware.

Khoo Hung Chean, cluster gen­eral man­ager for Len­ovo Malaysia, Sin­ga­pore, and Cen­tral Asia Pa­cific Re­gion, ex­plained: “Whether it’s for the cre­atives to un­leash the ul­ti­mate de­sign ex­pe­ri­ence, or for busi­nesses to have un­matched us­abil­ity, Len­ovo pro­vides the so­lu­tions cus­tomers need to ac­cel­er­ate their busi­ness de­ci­sions to be top in­dus­try lead­ers.

“The ThinkPad P40 Yoga show­cases amaz­ing in­no­va­tion and the power of In­tel tech­nol­ogy for cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als, while the ThinkS­ta­tion P410 gives a se­ri­ous boost to main­stream work­sta­tion com­put­ing.”

He added that in the face of the cur­rent eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion, Len­ovo feels that or­gan­i­sa­tions and con­sumers will think twice be­fore they spend their money, and when they do, they will spend on in­no­va­tion, which is the core strength of Len­ovo.

The ThinkPad P40 Yoga and the ThinkS­ta­tion P410 are cur­rently avail­able at the start­ing price of RM5,999 and RM4,999 re­spec­tively. – Az­izul Rah­man Is­mail
