Other features include a PCIe solid-state drive (SSD), which Lenovo claims is 80% faster than standard SSDS, 512GB, 10.9 hours of battery life and Intel HD GT2 graphics,

Yuanqing Yang, chairman and CEO, Lenovo, said: "When we acquired IBM’s PC business, we made a promise to not just protect the ThinkPad franchise, but to make it even better, even stronger. Today, ThinkPad continues to be one of the most respected brands in the industry fuelling Lenovo’s rise to number 1 in WW PCs."

"Now, even as Lenovo expands into mobile devices, servers and ecosystem and cloud computing, ThinkPad will remain at the core of our strategy and the heart of our business. It is an honour to continue to bring this legendary brand to our customers, and I look forward to many more ThinkPad milestones to come."
