New Lenovo Notebooks and All-in-One Pack AMD Processors

Computer maker Lenovo has introduced three new value computers built around AMD CPu and graphics solutions, the new C315 all-in-one desktop and the new G445 and G555 notebooks. The new systems are build around AMD Turion and Athlon processors and ATI graphics, and are designed to appeal to everyday computer users looking decent performance on a budget.

“Our new G series notebooks and C series all-in-one desktop are designed for users who want a simple but powerful computing experience without any headaches,” said Lenovo’s VP for business operations Dion Weisler, in a statement. “By working closely with AMD engineers and leveraging AMD advanced technologies, we have created products that offer superior performance in the areas of graphics and power efficiency at an affordable price point.”

The Lenovo C315 all-in-one offers a built-in 20-inch high-definition display with touch screen technology, so it can be easily used in any room in the home, from an office to a den to a kitchen to a media room. The C315 will be available with AMD Athlon dual-core processors, 4 GB of RAM, and ATI Mobility Radeon graphics; the system will also pack Lenovo’s IdeaTouch suite of touch-optimized applications for managing logins, movies, and photos. The C315 should launch in April for a suggested price of $649.

The G445 and G555 notebooks will ovver 16:9 widescreen displays, AMD Turion II Dual-core processors, and ATI Radeon HD graphics that offer full support for Windows Aero, Aero Flip, DirectX 10, and high-definition video. The notebooks will sport Lenovo’s Energy Management 5.0 software to reduce energy consumption and extend battery life, along with Lenovo’s OneKey rescue system to back up, repair, and recover the system in the event of a catastrophe. The notebooks will also sport a webcam with support for Lenovo’s VeriFace login technology. Lenovo says both systems will be on sale in March with prices starting at $449.

No other detailed specs have been published for the C315 or the two new notebooks. However, it seems reasonable to assume that the systems will pack now-standard features like Windows 7, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi networking, USB 2.0 connectivity, media card readers, integrated webcams, and DVD±RW drives.
