Engineered for reliability.

In the corporate world, you need to know you can depend on your employees to handle what you need them to do. The same is true of your business tools. These L Series laptops were built to be reliable performers, no matter what. That's why we submit them to eight MilSpec tests, ensuring they'll stay functional in adverse conditions such as high and low temperatures, altitude, mechanical and thermal shock, humidity, vibration and dust. We also have our own series of torture tests, ensuring they can withstand other extreme conditions. These laptops are constructed for durability, with new metal hinges and latchless design, and come with Active Protection System™ to prevent data loss in the event of a drop. Don't worry — they'll last as long as you do.

Built for business.

These machines aren't just durable; they're also reliable from a performance standpoint. They're cost-effective and optimized for business. Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 for Windows® 7 with optional RapidDrive means they boot 30 percent faster than typical laptops, you can open applications twice as quickly and the systems have been optimized for superior web conferencing — you'll make the most of the 720p, low-light-sensitive, HD webcam and the digital array microphone with noise-cancelling technology and dual speaking modes. You can expect twice the graphics performance, thanks to Intel® Integrated HD Graphics — or go for the optional 1GB VRAM ATI Mobility Radeon™ Discrete Graphics. And the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors with TurboBoost+ and Hyper-Threading technology mean you can expect 40-percent more battery life and 20-percent faster performance on the whole.

Smart security solutions.

You need to keep your data safe, and these laptops have the features to put your mind at ease. You'll rest easy knowing your laptop has an encrypted HDD, fingerprint reader, SmartCard option, BIOS port locking, Trusted Platform Module and more. And when you can rest easy, you can work hard.

Eco-friendly features.

These laptops will also put your conscience at ease when you realize you're having minimal negative impact on the environment by using them. The L420 and L520 have the highest amount of post-consumer recycled content of any of the ThinkPad line. The new thermal design has reduced energy consumption and they have lower CO2 emissions. They also ship with 20 percent less packaging, which is 100 percent recyclable. These machines are eco-friendly, and we're not the only ones who say so — they're certified by ENERGY STAR and qualify for EPEAT Gold rating.


For true mobility, carry and protect your investment with a ThinkPad Business case — backpack or toploader. Back at the office, use your laptop like a desktop PC with a ThinkPad Port Replicator Series 3 or Mini Dock Series 3, offering rear port cable management and connectivity. Wherever you are, power your laptop and cell phone (or other handheld device) with the Lenovo 90W Ultraslim AC/DC Combo Adapter — perfect at a desk, on the road or in the air.
