Default ThinkPad T,W,L Series to Feature Intel's Sandy Bridge

"Today, Lenovo announced updates to its popular ThinkPad T, W, and L series business notebooks, updating all models to Intel's 2nd Generation Core Series processors (Sandy Bridge) and adding faster boot times, longer battery life, and enhanced conferencing features. With model numbers each ending in "20," the new ThinkPad T420, T420s, T520, L420, L520, and W520 are due to ship at the end of March."

What's new here? Plenty: a faster BIOS promising 30-percent faster system start-up; SSD options; claimed battery life of 15-hours (!!) on the T420 with a 9-cell battery; 30-hours with a 9-cell battery slice added; "only" 10-hours on the slim T420S with a 6-cell battery and a bay battery instead of an optical drive; NVIDIA Optimus technology on several models; better wireless connectivity resumption; enhanced conferencing; and lots more. The T420S is expected to weigh less than 4-pounds, the T420 4.84-pounds, the T520 5.57-pounds, and their new "value-oriented" models, the L420 and L520 weigh 5.1-pounds and 5.75-pounds, respectively. There will also be a workstation-class model, the W520, offering higher resolution, more robust processors, up to 32GB DDR3 RAM, better graphics, and up to 10.7-hours of battery life. Quite an impressive new lineup from Lenovo.
