Lenovo continues to try to improve one of the most annoying experiences for Windows PC owners.
Slow boot up times.
The world’s No. 2 PC maker says its new service will enable PCs to boot up in 24 seconds rather than the average wait time of 41 seconds.
Titled Enhanced Experience 3, it’s designed for Windows 7.
The service comes standard on a number of Think-brand and Idea-brand machines.
Lenovo utilizes hardware settings and “optimized” processes for its so-called RapidBoot technology.
Customers using traditional spinning disk hard drive (HDD) Lenovo PCs can start their PC on average 40 percent faster than typical Windows 7 PC1 users, thanks to Lenovo’s RapidBoot technology, featured on all EE3 certified Lenovo PCs. RapidBoot uses optimized processes and hardware settings to allow Lenovo PCs to boot up faster.
Lenovo IdeaPad U310 and U410 Ultrabooks also offer the service as does the IdeaCentre A720 all-in-one machine.
“Time is precious, and when it comes to your PC, we want to make sure that every second counts, and reduce the wait time it takes to get your PC up and running,” said Mark Cohen, distinguished engineer and a vice president at Lenovo. “The EE3 optimizations we’ve made on our consumer and business PCs mean customers will spend less time waiting and more time doing what they want to do, with faster boot time performance and quicker resume times for a more instant-on experience.”
Lenovo maintains its executive headquarters in Morrisville.
