Although Lenovo is on the track to become the No. 1 PC maker in the world, the company recognizes it must compete in other markets as well if it wants to succeed long term. As consumers transition away from traditional PCs to using smartphones and tablets for an increasing number of tasks, companies such as Lenovo are recognizing the importance... Read more...
Ever heard of outsourcing? What about the reverse of that? While most PC makers have been shipping manufacturing to foreign lands for years, it's a Chinese-based company that's looking to bring some of those jobs back to America. Go figure. Lenovo, the company responsible for ThinkPad notebooks, has announced that... Read more...
Ultrabooks continue to be the hot trend in the Windows notebook arena. With the recent introduction of Intel's new, low power 3rd generation Ivy Bridge Core series processors, designs are becoming thinner with every iteration, while paradoxically it seems, performance continues to scale higher.  We've seen Ultrabook machines from virtually...

There's a new ThinkPad Tablet in town, and something tells us this one is going to be a lot more memorable than the prior one. The ThinkPad Tablet 2 for Windows 8 was unveiled this week, marking Lenovo's first slate to cater to Microsoft's forthcoming OS. It ships with an optional digitizer and pen for precision...

Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad line of notebooks has likely won more awards over time for the product's durable, functional design elements than just about any other notebook on the market. However, over the years it could be said that the business class workhorse line of laptops wasn't winning any beauty contests any... Read more...
Lenovo is getting ready for the back-to-school shopping season with the announcement of the new ThinkPad X131e laptop. This 11.6-inch laptop features a rugged design to ensure it withstands the demands of students and school. The ThinkPad X131e is available with dual core AMD E-300 and E2-1800 APUs with AMD Radeon graphics or Intel Core i3-2367M... Read more...
ThinkPad historians may recall Lenovo's X220 (laptop) and X220T (convertible tablet / notebook) from last year. Both were formidable machines, but Intel's 3rd-gen series of Core processors weren't out yet. Turns out, that kind of horsepower was missing in certain models. Now, however, the company's dual-core Ivy Bridge CPUs are out in full... Read more...
These days, it seems we're hearing more and more about tablets eating away at market share that was once ruled by netbooks and notebooks. Netbooks we can believe -- we haven't seen a compelling wave of new netbooks in months -- but are people really choosing tablets with limited functionality over full-scale laptops? That argument is expected... Read more...
An Ultrabook? A netbook? Something in-between. Maybe this one's just a standard notebook, and that's perfectly okay. Lenovo's ThinkPad X130e is now shipping to consumers, a few weeks after being adopted by select schools. The machine packs an 11.6" display, 4GB of memory, and your choice of an AMD Fusion API or Intel's Core i CPU. It's also... Read more...
Lenovo's first business-class Android-based tablet, the ThinkPad Tablet, is now available. This 10.1-inch, Android 3.1 tablet features pen-based handwriting recognition technology. The tablet also features a full-size USB port, full-size SD card slot, mini-HDMI for connecting to external displays, and a keyboard folio case with optical TrackPoint.... Read more...
Looks like the Eee Transformer has company. While many tablets are slimming down (and in turn, losing valuable ports), Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet remains a bit on the bulky side in hopes of business professionals appreciating it. The Tablet is a business-oriented slate with a 10.1" panel, a Tegra 2 (1GHz) chip, and most... Read more...
The new ThinkPad X1 is a formidable system; it's generally being billed as Lenovo's champion of choice vs. the Macbook Air. That comparison makes sense based on the Air's visibility, but the X1 is set to compete across the entire spectrum, including new machines from Dell and HP. The specs for the machine we tested don't represent Lenovo's... Read more...
The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a formidable system. It's generally being billed as Lenovo's champion of choice vs. the Macbook Air. That comparison makes sense based on the Air's visibility, but the X1 is set to compete across the entire spectrum, including new thin and light machines from Dell and HP and in the enterprise, where perhaps...

Lenovo's ThinkPad line has always been sexy in its own way. Solid, rigid, and robust, but also classy and understated. It's a design that has withstood the test of time, and there's no sense in changing what works. But a gentle tweak and a nip-tuck never hurt a notebook, that's for sure. Just as MSI's X-Slim line and Apple's MacBook Air redefined... Read more...
In this latest episode of Two and a Half Geeks, Dave, Iyaz, and Marco discuss the upcoming OCZ Vertex 3 solid state drive based on SandForce’s SF-2000 series controller, the AMD Fusion-based Lenovo ThinkPad X120e ultraportable, Apple’s new Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Pros with Intel’s new ThunderBolt...

At the time of our recent review of Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e, we weren't exactly sure when the machine would go on sale to the public. It was stated that it may be some point in March before Lenovo had them ready to go, but obviously things have been sped up somewhat. As of now, the X120e can be ordered directly from Lenovo, with a starting... Read more...
It feels like only yesterday that Lenovo was serving up a lot of new ThinkPad machines, but as the times roll on, so must PC makers. This time, Lenovo's new spate of machines are targeting the mobile business user, perhaps one that's fed up their clunker from last decade. The T420s, T420, T520, L420, L520 and W520 are...

By now most of you probably know that AMD’s Fusion technology bakes a CPU and GPU into one single piece of silicon.  And while we have already reviewed the E-350 APU by its lonesome, we've been patiently waiting for a system builder to integrate the chip into a retail-ready, ultra-portable notebook. Lenovo has become one of the... Read more...
It's good to see that AMD's Fusion technology is finally shipping. The convergence of the CPU and GPU has been looming for some time now, and while there have already been a few CPU / GPU hybrids available form the likes of Intel, the thought of having another low-power, economical to produce, cutting edge CPU / GPU combo on...

Intel took the wraps off their Sandy Bridge desktop and mobile platforms back in January and with new technologies like an improved integrated HD Graphics engine, Quick Sync video encoding and Turbo Boost 2.0 dynamic overclocking, it was obvious that Intel was shooting for more than just a performance kick. ...

Lenovo and security go together quite well. The company's ThinkPad line has made a name for itself over the years as being one of the most robust, rugged and secure notebook lines on the market. And now, with business users more concerned about their privacy and security, the company is taking another big step to... Read more...
