Lenovo today announced the ThinkPad Z60, the first widescreen multimedia
ThinkPad notebooks. ThinkPad Z60 is designed for mobile and small business users
who rely on one notebook computer for both work and life demands.

In addition to the classic black ThinkPad design, the new Z60 is available in
a special edition brushed titanium cover. 1 Titanium offers a sleek new look,
durability, and scratch resistance to one of the world’s most well-known
notebook brands.

The ThinkPad Z60m’s 15.4-inch display offers 30 percent more data space than a
15-inch XGA and better viewing angles for notebook use on an airline flight. At
28mm thick and just 2.1kg, the 14-inch ThinkPad Z60t is the thinnest and
lightest widescreen notebook in its class. 2 The Z60t boasts 25 percent more
data space than a standard 14-inch XGA screen, the equivalent of four additional
spreadsheet columns, offering a convenient solution to business users who often
work with multiple applications simultaneously.

Several innovative multimedia features – including hot keys to control
application functions and ports to easily upload digital images and video – make
the ThinkPad Z60 optimal for business or home use, including presentations,
multimedia and DVD movies.

"With mobility on the rise, the line between work and home is less defined,"
said Howie Lau, Country General Manager, Lenovo Singapore. "Customers are
looking for technology that is able to integrate various aspects of their life
and help them maximize their time whether at home or travelling. The ThinkPad
Z60 is the most secure, lightest, 14 inch widescreen notebook with the longest
battery life that gives them a balance of style, versatility and security rolled
into one."

Roll Cage Improves Notebook Durability

For business travellers, the ThinkPad Z60 features a new inner armour chassis –
a ThinkPad "roll cage" – that may reduce the amount of stress on internal
components when the notebook is dropped by up to 30 percent. The internal
components, including the hard disk drive, are mounted in one-piece magnesium
cage that forms a more protective shell than traditional casings without
affecting usability. Combined with Lenovo’s Active Protection System, a
ThinkVantage Technology, the ThinkPad "roll cage" provides a strong solution to
defend against costly hard disk damage. The Roll Cage will be deployed in the
Z60 and future ThinkPad models.

Style and Substance

The widescreen TFT display is encased in a special edition brushed titanium
cover that is both durable and scratch-resistant. New Windows, multimedia and
application keys enhance the legendary full-size ThinkPad keyboard. 3 Lenovo
strategically placed the large stereo speakers on either side of the keyboard
for superior sound quality and volume. Adding to the multimedia capabilities are
an array of ports for nearly every peripheral, including three USB 2.0 ports and
connections for S-Video, VGA and IEEE1394. The ThinkPad Z60m also boasts a 3 in
1 media card reader.

ThinkVantage Technologies Simplify User Experience

New ThinkVantage Technologies by Lenovo provide more powerful features in a
centralized dashboard, making PC security quick and simple. The ThinkPad Z60
come equipped with the latest version of the ThinkVantage Client Security
Solution, which enables users to recover logon passwords themselves. It also
features easy and powerful disk encryption, updated password manager software,
and a System Security Audit to ensure users are properly securing their system.
