Lenovo is to bring several new 2008 Olympic Games-inspired Lenovo 3000 models to the channel.

The Chinese vendor, which is the official technology sponsor of the upcoming Beijing Olympics, revealed that it would be launching silver and black models of its Lenovo J200, J200p J205 and S200 tower and desktops – all sporting the official logo of the 2008 Games logo.

The vendor also announced the various specifications of the range, revealing that the J200p will boast Intel Core Quad processors, while the J200 and S200 will both sport Intel-based processors, although the company did not specify, which Intel-based processors the two models would come with. The J205 will come equipped with an AMD processor, although once again, it declined to clarify which process it would have.

The vendor also revealed that each model would come with Gigabit Ethernet, integrated graphics, a total of six USB ports as well as security features including a chassis intrusion lock and PC lock slot.

In addition, the PCs will also come with optional DVD multiburners as well as TPM 1.2 data encryption, although only on select models.

"We've designed our latest Lenovo 3000 desktops with that spirit in mind, displaying the Lenovo Olympic Games composite logo along with a new, stylish design and including the features a small business needs to stay productive like quad core processing technology and excellent management capabilities", said executive director, global desktop marketing management at Lenovo, Dilip Bhatia.

The Lenovo 3000 J200 and J205 are priced at £246 and £309 respectively while the S200 would start at £263 – all three being available now. The Lenovo 3000 J200p has yet to be priced or dated.
