The six models are the high-end T420 and T520, the mid-range L420 and L520, the ultrathin T420S, and the portable workstation for graphics-intensive applications, the W520.
All of the models will include a dual-mode videoconferencing microphone and 'Lenovo Turbo Boost' for faster PC performance.
Instant Resume was unveiled today along with the devices, a feature that will keep the Wi-Fi connection on for 99 minutes when the laptop is sleeping. The feature is meant for office users who want to move from an office to, say, a conference room, without losing their Wi-Fi connection after closing their notebook.
The T420, T520 and T420S each come with 9-cell batteries and additional 9-cell snap-on batteries, which together combine for 30 hours of battery life without the need for recharging.
Each of the T and W series models also include Nvidia Optimus for extra battery boost.
Most of the models will be available starting next month, with price tags ranging from $900-$1500.
