Lenovo has introduced a new series of ThinkPad, the L Series, featuring the latest Intel processing technologies.Both the L412 and L512 are claimed to be the greenest laptops on the market, containing the highest amounts of post consumer recycled content.

The laptops use up to 30 per cent post consumer content from plastic office water jugs and used IT equipment parts, such as the LCD cover, palm rests and top/bottom case. The L512 laptop contains 18 per cent post consumer content (PCC), making it the industry’s highest amount of PCC in a laptop. Each L Series laptop saves the equivalent of ten plastic water bottles.

As part of the lifecycle design process, the laptops meet Energy Star 5.0 for high-energy efficiency and are rated EPEAT Gold in the U.S. for their environmental attributes. Users can deploy Lenovo’s Power Manager Software tool to monitor and adjust power settings.

Additionally, Lenovo has said it is committed to reducing packaging materials by 20 per cent of yearly volume, so the laptops are shipped in 100 percent recycled packaging.
