Lenovo ships out green, thin 19-inch LCDs

Lenovo ThinkVision 19-inch

Lenovo today upgraded its ThinkVision displays with a trio of 19-inch LCDs that help meet green targets and occupy little space on a desk. The standard-ratio L193p is the first LCD to meet the EPEAT environmental standard that demands both a low power draw as well as eco-friendly materials. More than a quarter of the screen is made from recycled material, Lenovo boasts. It includes both a DVI port with HDCP encryption support and VGA for analog video and should be available next month for $299.

As an alternative, the L190x is designed for multi-monitor layouts, according to the PC maker. Also a standard-aspect LCD, the second model touts a bezel just 0.26 inches thick and creates a much less conspicuous gap. Though less environmentally responsible, it compensates with a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, a wide color range, and four USB ports to attach virtually every peripheral without reaching down to connect them to a tower. It also releases in November for $379.

One widescreen display joins the lineup. The L194w shifts to a 1440x900 landscape view with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and both HDCP-protected DVI and VGA inputs that suit it to viewing 720p HD video. Pricing for the display positions it as the least expensive of the three ThinkVisions, costing $259 when it ships in November.
