  • Lenovo May Move Into Enterprise Tablet Business (If There Is Such A Thing)

    Lenovo May Move Into Enterprise Tablet Business (If There Is Such A Thing)

    Lenovo has voiced guarded enthusiasm for getting into the enterprise tablet market — you know, that's the one with almost no players at the moment. The Nav9 I recently reviewed is aimed in that direction, and of course HP's Slate is intended for enterprise as well, but tablets have historically been far less convincing to businesses than, say, Blackberries, so it's still a market in… Read More

  • The ThinkPad Line Reaching 60 Million Sold Notebooks, Lenovo Celebrates With Modes Updates

    The ThinkPad Line Reaching 60 Million Sold Notebooks, Lenovo Celebrates With Modes Updates

    The ThinkPad has long been looked upon as the standard of PC notebooks. Partly because the line has been a staple since 1992, but also because they're just so damn good. The notebook line will hit the 60 million mark sometime this month. That's impressive and an achievement that should be celebrated with a bit of booze and bonuses for everyone involved. But Lenovo, the current owner of the brand… Read More

  • Lenovo gets into the pad business with the LePad

    Lenovo gets into the pad business with the LePad

    At CES, we saw two compelling new products from Lenovo: the LePhone, a slick and powerful Android smartphone, and the U1, an interesting hybrid notebook-tablet. Unfortunately, neither one was destined to make its way into our hands. The LePhone is looking to be an Asia-only device, and the U1 has been shelved to make way for an Android-powered variant. But Lenovo isn't giving up — well, not… Read More

  • The iPad Alternatives — The 'Where Are They Now' Edition

    The iPad Alternatives — The 'Where Are They Now' Edition

    The iPad is the king of tablets and might hold that title for years to come. However, there are a ton of alternatives that we've featured over the last few months, mostly in these two posts (1 & 2) detailing the top 14. But since I ran those posts, a lot has changed and while some managed to make it to the market, others were delayed or scrapped entirely. It's sad, really. While the iPad… Read More

  • All-in-one computer sales up 63 percent (but Apple losing out)

    All-in-one computer sales up 63 percent (but Apple losing out)

    Seems people really like those all-in-one PCs à la the iMac. Sales this year are expected to grow some 63 percent from last year, to 11.5 million units worldwide. And while that's good news for computer makers overall, there are winners and losers in the data. The big surprising loser? Yup, Apple. Read More

  • Lenovo releases 3D laptop

    Lenovo releases 3D laptop

    Whoa. This isn’t your Dad’s Lenovo. Heck, it isn’t even your cool older cousins. The Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d is a 3D multimedia machine with a 15.6-inch screen running Windows 7 and up to 8GB memory and 750GB hard drive. It has TriDef 3D technology with 3D glasses and Dolby Home Theater surround sound. A Core i7 adds a wee bit of power along with a Radeon HD5730. Also it has a… Read More

  • Lenovo U1 hybrid laptop-tablet to live on as Android device

    Lenovo U1 hybrid laptop-tablet to live on as Android device

    The blogosphere cried out in anguish that day, when Lenovo’s compelling (and slightly bizarre) U1 combination tablet and laptop was unceremoniously canceled, and the Skylight OS ditched for Android. The press release implied, but did not say outright, that the U1 was being sent to the great concept bin in the sky. I asked for clarification, and a Lenovo spokesperson told me: the U1 is being… Read More

  • Lenovo kills off the U1, switches internal OS out for Android in future devices

    Lenovo kills off the U1, switches internal OS out for Android in future devices

    It appears that Lenovo's U1 hybrid tablet/laptop, which we saw at CES, is being scuppered. My guess is that the Skylight OS, a custom implementation of Linux, just wasn't good enough to compete with the tablets on the market — and possibly the cost of continuing to support such a project was too much. Whatever the case, the U1 is off the table, as is the Skylight smartbook, though they say… Read More

  • A quick look at Lenovo's ThinkCentre M90z desktop

    Ready for your daily dose of viral marketing? This Lenovo video is just that, but it's also an interesting look at the development of Lenovo's upcoming ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one workstation. These folks know all-in-one desktops and the M90z looks to be the best yet. Launch data and specs should drop soon. Hopefully. Read More

  • Hands-on with Lenovo's cavalcade of laptops and PCs

    Hands-on with Lenovo's cavalcade of laptops and PCs

    Lenovo’s new line-up is heavy on the all-in-ones but has a few surprises up its sleeve. I got a chance to look at most of the new line last week and came away extremely enthused by the twee Q150. From the press release: If your idea of fun is tricking out your living room entertainment center, then the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150 is the perfect solution. At just 0.82 inches wide and 6.7 inches… Read More
