Chinese computer company Lenovo signed a multi-year agreement with Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati in 2018.
Initially the agreement was to support the Ducati MotoGP team with computer firepower, but also to develop products and collaborate on research and development.
The result of this collaboration includes special products such as this limited-edition Lenovo Ducati 5 laptop PC, starting at $1999. Only 12,000 will be produced.
It is based on Intel Core i5 processors up to the 10th generation, with a 14-inch full HD display with a thin bezel and Dolby Audio speakers facing upwards.
Lenovo Ducati 5 also has a fingerprint reader on the power button for secure access that is quicker than entering a password.
There’s also a Privacy Shutter, so you can close the webcam when you don’t want to be disturbed.
Matching Ducati’s MO of lightweight and powerful motorcycles, the laptop is 19.1mm thin and weighs only 1.52kg.
We love the official press release that also plays on the motorcycle relationship:
The Lenovo Ducati 5 can run for up to 12 hours without needing to pull over and refuel—more than enough to watch your favourite motorbike team go from pole position to the podium. And when the battery’s low, there’s Rapid Charge. Just 15 minutes of recharging and you’re good to go for another three hours.
Get off to the best possible start with lightning-fast performance and various options, including 1TB PCIe SSD storage, 8GB DDR4 memory, and WiFi 6. Plus, with a state-of-the art USB-C port, you can charge your other devices or transfer data at speeds up to 10Gbps.
Ducati. A symbol of speed, performance, and innovation. The Lenovo Ducati 5 taps into that spirit. Dynamic and aesthetically engineered, it fuses pure horsepower with style and verve. With its metallic chassis elements and Ducati detailing, this special edition 14″ laptop is sure to ignite your passion. Start your engines.
