Lenovo quietly introduces Core 2 Duo laptop

Lenovo Core 2 Duo

In addition to inheriting IBM's reputation for durable laptops, Chinese manufacturer Lenovo also inherited the American company's typically conservative approach to system upgrades, often updating its models only after the initial wave of updates from rivals. Lenovo's newly released 3000 N100 laptop at once follows this tradition and defies it. While the new model has become available with Lenovo's common lack of fanfare and misses the flurry of earlier product launches, the adoption of Intel's latest processor is unusually quick for the brand and is targeted at the mainstream user - not Lenovo's more prevalent business travelers. The 15.4-inch N100 ships relatively well-equipped with a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and an 8X DVD rewriter. Bluetooth is standard and a fingerprint reader is optional. Lenovo is taking orders today for $999 but estimates a 3-4 week shipping time. Other models from the company, including the ThinkPad line, have yet to receive a corresponding update.
