Personal computer maker Lenovo India on Monday unveiled its ThinkPad X1, a premium product that is priced from Rs.90,000 onwards, mainly aimed at enterprise customers.
“ThinkPad X1 is a premium notebook, which ranges from Rs.90,000 onwards and is the world's slimmest thinkpad measuring less than 17 mm. The product will be available at retail outlets. However, our focus is enterprise customers as it is a premium product,” Lenovo India Managing Director Amar Babu told reporters here.
It also has scratch proof and spill proof designs with 10 hours battery power.
“We have rapid recharge feature that recharges 80 per cent battery in just 30 minutes,” he said.
The company aims to become number one vendor in the country and to achieve this it has to grow faster than the market, which grew at slightly more than 20 per cent in 2009-10, he said.
“We achieved a growth rate of close to 60 per cent in 2009-10, which was three times more than the market growth. We aim to maintain and sustain this growth,” he added.
