IBM INTRODUCES THE THINKPAD A SERIES & THINKPAD T SERIES.

IBM announced the next generations of ThinkPad notebooks designed to enhance and simplify the mobile computing experience. The innovative IBM ThinkPad A Series and ThinkPad T Series provide extensive improvements from new Titanium Composite materials to one-touch IBM help and information.

"We have raised the bar in mobile computing by creating a simpler experience for users and an easier platform for information technology professionals to manage," says Adalio Sanchez, general manager, IBM Mobile Computing. "When designing these new ThinkPad lines, IBM focused on usability features, like our ThinkPad Button and Access ThinkPad Portal, while still delivering the power and performance our customers have come to expect."

The computers incorporate weight-reducing Titanium Composite materials and a host of new ease-of-use features including common swappable components and built-in ports for modem and LAN connections. These new notebooks help keep users connected with a range of options including wireless solutions. Plus, IBM's services and support are now more convenient with the new ThinkPad Button, a tool that simplifies access to online and on-system information, resources and help.

IBM has simplified its ThinkPad product lineup and changed the naming scheme to connote the experience of the product. The "A" indicates that it is an alternative to a desktop computer, while the "T" indicates it is a 'think-and-light' notebook. The currently available ThinkPad 390 models are transitioning to the new ThinkPad A20m. Likewise, the ThinkPad 770 models are transitioning to the high-performance ThinkPad A20p, and the ThinkPad 600 is transitioning to the new ThinkPad T20.
