Lenovo Olympic PCs

In an unusual branding strategy, ThinkPad maker Lenovo has announced that two upcoming desktop PCs will bear the Olympic insignia, reflecting the company's status as a sponsor for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. The 3000-series J200s will be based on Intel processors, while the J205s will be based on AMD chips; in both circumstances the computers will be low-cost models, with features such as six USB ports and gigabit Ethernet connections. Graphics will be integrated, and items like a DVD multi-drive or a nine-in-one card reader will merely be optional. Shipping is expected in August for prices starting at $399 and $449.
