DON'T BE BOUND TO THE CHARGER
Education is not confined to the four walls of the school anymore. Students tend to spend a lot of time in the cafes, parks, or even in the libraries. With a battery life of up to 12 hours and features like RapidCharge that give you 80% battery capacity in an hour, it becomes easy to do tasks even on-the-move.
WORKS HARDER THAN YOU DO
Students have to wade through multiple challenging assignments and tedious project preparations. The ThinkPad L series can take on full workload, thanks to the latest Intel® Core™ Processors. Entering commands is a breeze with the optional multitouch display.
YOU WILL LOVE THIS KNOW-IT-ALL
Students will never have to hunt for files or scramble to remember deadlines again with Cortana. A personal assistant for the students, Cortana can search for project files and research materials effortlessly.
PUTS UP WITH YOU, EVEN IN THE LATE HOURS
Tedious assignments that are nearing the deadlines require students to work all day and sometimes, all night. And there are times when assignments are remembered last minute! The optional backlit keyboard with white LEDs lets you use it in lowlight surroundings to complete the tasks at hand despite the late hours.
