ThinkPad SL Series image

The SL Series loses the traditional ThinkPad “suit and tie” design
for a more toned-down, business casual look- complete with a more
eye-catching cover. But it struts professional savvy through VoIP
optimization and multitouch touchpad navigation.

The day is done — finally time to ditch the office,
kick back and turn your small business laptop into
a big-screen entertainment center. Use our HDMI
interface to connect to an external monitor or TV
and get ready to enjoy high-definition sights and
sounds.

Outfit your ThinkPad SL system with options like an antiglare screen or
our ever-popular fingerprint reader. And let us help you customize your
notebook with the software that matters most to you.

Lenovo's ThinkPad SL line handily addresses the needs (and budgets) of small businesses and sole proprietors by including many of the ThinkPad's benefits and discarding the corporate-focused extras.
