IBM Middle East announced today plans to launch its new range of 'ThinkVantage' technology based desktops with a series of market briefings and development events in Beirut.

The event will gather channel partners and customers in Lebanon to brief them on IBM's latest PC-based solutions that offer improved manageability, security and wireless capabilities.

"IBM's ThinkVantage technologies offer several unique advantages to PC users in the business environment. These events are a great opportunity for us to work closely with our partners and customers and guide them in using the best PC solutions for their businesses and day to day activities," says Sameh Farid, regional manager of personal computing division, IBM Middle East, Egypt and Pakistan.

ThinkVantage includes features such as the hard disk active protection system, an IBM patented hardware and software solution that reduces hard drive failures by avoiding full-induced system damage. Other features include the Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore, which helps users to restore their systems after software crashes, corruption on applications and viruses.

Select models of IBM's new ThinkCentre-A Series come loaded with the ThinkVantage technology and offers one-button recovery of previously saved settings, programs and data with IBM Rapid Restore Ultra software and allow easy migration of personal data, network and system settings with IBM System Migration Assistant which come preloaded. The Intel Pentium-4 PC's are priced starting from US$379 (without monitor) with Windows XP installed.

IBM will also demonstrate its new ThinkPad notebooks and the re-designed line of ThinkCentre desktops, as well as a special focus on the xSeries range of eServers with Enterprise X-Architecture.
