Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience for ThinkPad’s
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of Windows 7 then you’ll be pleased to hear the latest news from Lenovo. The company will soon begin offering customers what they call “the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience.”
Microsoft has been trying hard to re-establish their brand in the minds of consumers ever since the first version of Vista rolled off the assembly line and the company’s leaders have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making sure that the system is flawless. And Lenovo, to improve upon near-perfection, has completed a full optimization of the operating system for its machines.
The Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience features a number of upgrades to, and optimization of, the Windows 7 platform to give specific advantages to ThinkPad and IdeaPad users. Combine the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience with the imminent releases of the new ThinkPad T410, ThinkPad T510, ThinkPad SL410/510 and the ThinkPad X210 series, the Lenovo Thinkpad range is going to be difficult to beat in the Business notebook sector
Let’s take a look at what’s in store for users taking advantage of the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience.
The Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience makes sure that you can get to work right away.
The programmers at Lenovo have totally optimized the new speed capabilities of Windows 7 – which already has much faster start-up and shut-down times than the ancient Windows XP and the buggy Windows Vista – by optimizing hardware settings, reorganizing system files and by preventing the system from booting up unnecessary processes. The end result is readily apparent.
Measured against a non-optimized Windows 7 machine, start-up times were up to 33 percent faster and shut-down times were 50 percent faster, meaning that 10-minute start-up and shut-down times are a thing of the past.
Windows 7 Advanced Entertainment and Graphics
Equipped with DirectX10, digital audio, and the latest high-definition graphics technology, Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience machines offer unparalleled entertainment.
With the enhanced graphics cards and video decoders on the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience you can be sure that all of the high-definition video that you watch will be free of screen jitters and stutters. Combining this with the upgraded digital audio components provides absolutely seamless playback of even the most data-rich videos.
Gamers, too, will appreciate the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience since the operating system can make use of Aero Peek and Aero Flip, both of which create flawless transitions while playing advanced, graphic-intense 3D games.
Both Windows XP and Windows Vista have had problems with backing-up data and setting system-restore points. Now you can rest assured – with the combination of Windows 7 backup and the Lenovo Rescue System 3.0 – that your data will be there when you need it.
The update also allows users to fix individually affected files and folders rather than having to revert the machine to point in the past, which means you won’t have to lose data like you would have previously.
With an eye for business users, the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience offers extreme security of sensitive data. Specially enhanced ThinkPad machines will not only run faster, but they will also protect your data more effectively with the integrated multi-layered security processes.
The front line of the new security features are the same as in the past. ThinkPad machines provide quick login and easy access to users with the built-in fingerprint reader, so you can forget about login passwords and remain confident that you will truly be the only person allowed access to your machine.
A new second layer of security is added in the form of the new Password Manager ThinkVantage Technology, which allows you and your company’s IT people to set individual passwords for hard drives and individual folders and files in a single location.
The technology also features a number of options for self-encrypting of your sensitive data in case someone should get through the first two layers of security.
The ThinkPad series is already a teleconferencing machine, with webcam’s and integrated microphones standard equipment, but now the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience ThinkPad provides users with a variety of new tools to ensure that they’re in constant communication with colleagues from anywhere in the world. With everything from wider integration of video and audio tools to streamlined conference programs, you’ll never be far from the action.
To support these communication tools, the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience gives users unprecedented connectivity options. Not only can ThinkPad owners use the already standard Wi-Fi and LAN connections, but they can also incorporate optimized 3G Mobile Broadband, Bluetooth 2.1 and 4G WiMax. And since Lenovo has made the most of Windows 7, there will be seamless transitions between connections depending on the availability of each method of access, so you won’t have to deal with annoying cut-outs and reconnection processes.
Touchscreen Optimization with Multi Touch and SimpleTap
The new Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience will be most striking to users of the ThinkPad X200 tablet and the ThinkPad T400s; that’s because Windows 7 offers unrivaled touchscreen technology. With pressure-sensitive screens, ThinkPad tablets can now make use of a variety of simpler, more intuitive interactivity when they work with the Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience. Imagine an iPhone with a 14-inch screen and a dual-core processor and you’ll begin to understand.
The true advancements remain to be seen, but both Microsoft and Lenovo assure consumers that a new day has dawned in touch-screen technology.
The new Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience promises to bring both the superb ThinkPad and IdeaPad notebooks to the forefront of Windows 7 performance, so whether you’re a general-purpose user or an extreme business user, you’ll love what the company has to offer.
