Lenovo ThinkPad A is first business ThinkPad notebook powered by AMD chips

Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) today announced its latest additions to the ThinkPad portfolio. The new ThinkPad A275 and A475 notebooks are the first enterprise-level ThinkPad models to feature AMD PRO technology. Combining twenty-five years of ThinkPad heritage with the multi-tasking power and hardware-level security of AMD, the A series meets your professional needs, whether in the office or on the road. Powerful AMD Radeon R7 onboard graphics, all day battery life, LTE-A connectivity and a touch screen option provides the flexibility you need to bring your work to life.

The Modern Office
Productivity is the key to success. Do more in less time without being confined to a desk. It’s all about efficiency and simplified management of the modern office IT environment. DASH (Desktop and Mobile Architecture for System Hardware) provides easy-to-use, open source system management tools able to operate across different types of processors and operating systems. Your data is secure the moment you power up, thanks to AMD PRO hardware security in addition to Windows Hello and ThinkPad Match-on-Chip Fingerprint Reader.

On The Road
The road is your office. Planes, trains and automobiles have become your workplace. The ThinkPad A275 and A475 offer the power and agility you need to conquer each day. More than ten hours’ battery life and LTE-A mobile high speed broadband connectivity keeps you in touch with your customers all day long. Mil-Spec quality ensures endurance through the inevitable bumps and bruises that come with being on the road.

Power that Drives Your Business
Adding to the existing M715 Tiny, the latest ThinkCentre M715 Tower and SFF models are primed to grow along with your business. Equipped with the AMD PRO or Ryzen PRO processors, the M715 series generate the performance for intensive tasks such as multimedia creation, graphic design and number-crunching. Your priceless work is secure through data and physical protection and since they endure 200 rigorous quality checks, the M715 series are built to last.
