Ubuntu to ship on Lenovo laptops in India


  • Lenovo to start shipping Ubuntu preloaded laptops in India starting with the Thinkpad L450
  • This marks the first joint launch for Canonical and Lenovo in India; building on the strong momentum Ubuntu has already achieved in the region
  • Devices to be largely sold through selected commercial resellers/distributors across India

Lenovo will be shipping Ubuntu preloaded devices starting with Thinkpad L450 laptop from early this month. The laptops will be available to purchase from selected commercial resellers and distributors throughout the region  at prices starting from INR 40,000.

This marks another milestone in the global adoption of Ubuntu, and is the first joint launch between Lenovo and Canonical in India – another OEM coming into the fold in a region where Ubuntu already possesses a strong foothold.

The Thinkpad L450 laptop models are durable yet sleekly designed machines with stunning 14’’ HD displays. They offer powerful cutting edge processing with Intel Core i3 5005U and i5 52000U processors, in addition to 4GB RAM and 500GB hard drives.

The Thinkpad L450 laptop series will come preloaded with Ubuntu 14.04 (the long term support version) which affords support and maintenance for five years from release date. In addition to long-term support, Ubuntu 14.04 comes with touch screen enhancements and works seamlessly on hiDPI monitors.

‘’It is very exciting to be working with Lenovo on bringing the Ubuntu Edition of the Thinkpad L450 laptop to commercial customers here in India.’’ said Prakash Advani, Regional Director, Sales & Alliances – India & SouthEast Asia. “This marks a true stepping stone in our relationship with Lenovo and an extension of our offerings in the Indian marketplace which is one of our key markets for Ubuntu PCs globally. Lenovo has a strong presence amongst large enterprises who are increasingly adopting the Ubuntu OS.’’

Rahul Agarwal, Managing Director, Lenovo India, said “Lenovo’s ability to stay ahead of the curve has been built on its strong relationship with its enterprise customers. We are happy about this partnership as our customers in India will now have access to Ubuntu preloaded Thinkpad L450 laptop series. Through this partnership we hope to strengthen our customer relationship by providing multiple OS options and enhance user experience.”

Lenovo Thinkpad 450 laptops with Ubuntu preloaded will be available from select distributors and resellers across the region starting early July. For more information on the device and its specifications, visit www.lenovo.com/in.
