Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E425, E525 have new “AutoLock” feature

In general, I like Lenovo products, especially stuff from their business line. The company is continuing a similar approach with a couple of new additions in the form of the ThinkPad Edge E425 and the ThinkPad Edge E525. These are meant to provide a “slimmer, more polished design” to go along with enough juice to keep your business running on the go.

The two versions are much the same, except the Edge E425 has a 14-inch screen, while the E525 has a 15.6-inch screen. Both are powered by the AMD A-Series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) with VISION Pro Technology, integrated AMD Radeon discrete-class graphics, and an optional fingerprint reader for business-level security. Storage options go up to 750GB and RAM gets up to 8GB. The usual USB, DVD, media card reader, and HDMI are in tow as well.

They’re also including something called Lenovo AutoLock. The integrated webcam detects when the user walks away, locking up the PC in his or her absence. Sometimes, you forget to log out from your workstation or you just need to step away for a moment. Pricing for both the E425 and E525 will start in the $549 range when they ship later this month.

In related news, Lenovo also announced the 14-inch ThinkVision LT1421 Wide, which serves as a mobile monitor to accompany your laptop on the go. That also ships this month with the price tag set at $219.99.
