Lenovo has refreshed their entire ThinkPad lineup for 2012, bringing Intel's 3rd-generation Core processors to bear on their business-centric hardware. Lenovo's entire refreshed lineup packs Intel's Ivy Bridge CPUs, USB 3.0, and the company's new Thinkpad Precision Keyboard.
We had a chance to get some hands-on time with these machines recently, and the revamped keyboard doesn't disappoint. It offers the comfortable, accurate typing experience we've come to expect from Lenovo's wares, coupled with optional backlighting. Lenovo is also including the latest version of their Enhanced Experience platform — version 3.0 adds the latest iteration of Lenovo's RapidBoot and BootShield technologies, which promises to keep boot times under 30 seconds. Lenovo's Rapid Charge technology makes its debut on some units; Lenovo claims it will charge a laptop's battery up to about 80 percent in as little as 30 minutes. Some models will also offer 4G mobile connectivity. On to the PCs!
