The Lenovo ThinkPad L430 and L530 business notebooks will be launched in June, according to a page on Lenovo.com.
Details of the laptops are still unknown, but the PC maker says that they are MilSpec-tesed for durability and provide long runtime. Like the previous L-series ThinkPads which contain materials made of post-consumer recycled content, the L430 and L530 are eco-friendly. Specifications of the new notebooks are unknown, but we expect the new lineup to receive Intel Ivy Bridge processors. The previous generation L ThinkPads haven’t some higher-end options like quad-core CPUs and dedicated video cards, which are available in the T-series.
On the product image, we have noticed that the L430 and L530 do not feature the classic ThinkPad keyboard, but Lenovo’s isle-style AccuType one also featured on the upcoming T430u. That’s a radical change, since non-Edge ThinkPads (L, T, W, and X series) are well known for their legendary keyboards, which are one of their best selling points.
The good news is that the ThinkPad L-series are affordably priced, with current generation starting at $600.
