Lenovo ThinkPad L412 and L512 now shipping

Lenovo's reassuringly green ThinkPad L412 and L512 notebooks have gone on sale, and they bring with them a pleasant boost in basic specs.  Rather than the $649 Celeron base model we initially heard about, both the 14-inch L412 and 15.6-inch L512 kick off at $599 with an Intel Core i3 CPU.  An upgrade to a Core i5 processor is just $150.

There's also 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 160GB hard-drive and WiFi b/g/n, along with optional integrated mobile broadband.  Both models have a DVD burner, Intel GMA HD graphics and gigabit ethernet, and will ship within 9 business days.
