Lenovo is kicking off IFA 2015 with an announcement for the business sector. They have looked at the current business products on the market, and are unleashing the new ThinkPad E Series. The E460, E560, E465, and E565 will all be landing in November of this year. Lenovo has crafted a portable and affordable performance machine for small and medium businesses.

The E460 and E560, respectively feature a 14-inch or a 15.6-inch display that is either HD or Full HD. They are powered by the latest and greatest Intel Skylake processor, along with AMD Radeon discrete graphics. You can get them with either Windows 7 or Windows 10, along with several pre-loaded applications from Lenovo. They offer a sturdy build quality along with the phenomenal ThinkPad keyboard. The more enhanced E465 and E565 come with an Intel RealSense 3D camera and finger print security.

In terms of battery life, you can expect up to 9 hours of battery life for all of the new ThinkPad E devices. They features 3 USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port, and a gigabit ethernet port. Plus, Lenovo has stated that the overall performance of these new updated machines in comparison to last year’s models result in a 10% improvement, which might just make it a worthy upgrade for business customers. They can get pretty powerful with up to 16GB of RAM combined with Intel’s latest generation processors.

The entire new ThinkPad E Series lineup will be landing in November and will be available in several choices, including Lenovo’s online store. The E460 and E560 will come in at $549, while the E465 is $449, and the E565 is $479. You can see a full gallery of these devices below and stay tuned for our full thoughts on them in the coming months.

    For anyone reading the above article keep in mind that the laptops with model numbers ending with 5 have an AMD processor, not Intel.
    To be more precise FX 8800p, A10 8700p, A8 8600p and A6 8XXX something (don’t remember the name of the lowest chip)
    While the Intel chips will feel snappier and be faster in most cases the AMD laptops will probably do better at tasks that are compute accelerated.
    So facial recognition and fingerprint recognition. Video conferences and video playback. And 3D applications.
    Libreoffice will probably run better on AMDs chips, Microsoft Office probably on Intels version.

    That’s my guess anyway based on what I’ve heard about these processors.
