Models will include Sandy Bridge processor, integrated graphics, and optional WWAN support

First introduced back in January, the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s has now been made available through the official Lenovo online store.

The 14-inch laptop comes in a variety of configurations, but all options are limited to integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000. Of course, this should be no problem for most buyers as the E420s is geared towards business users. Other than the graphics limitation, users can choose from a 2.1GHz Core i3-2310M or 2.3GHz Core i5-2410M, 2GB to 8GB of RAM, Bluetooth, and mobile broadband support. All models will run 64-bit Windows 7 with an optical drive, HDMI-out, USB2.0, and fingerprint reader. Unfortunately, there are no USB 3.0 ports in the new E420s.

Additionally, the 1366x768 resolution screen will be covered with edge-to-edge lightweight glass to make the screen more durable.

Lenovo was recently labeled as environmentally friendly this year by the UL Environment Company for its line of ThinkPad laptops. It may be worth checking out what Lenovo has in store for its popular upcoming notebooks. The ThinkPad Edge E420s can be found here starting at $699.
