    Hands on with the Lenovo U110

    We’ve been “thinking” about the Lenovo IdeaPads since CES but now that they’re actually launching we’re actually pretty exciting.

  • Video: Lenovo's humorous take on the MacBook Air

    Lenovo pretty much sums up my opinion of the MacBook air in this very clever, very cheeky parody of that Air commercial you’ve been seeing for the last two months. In it, an Air is taken out of an manila envelope, just as Steve the Great did at MacWorld in January. Then, all the components it’s missing (optical drive, 3G wireless, etc.) are plugged into a hub, which is plugged into… Read More

    Lenovo drops ThinkPad X300 to answer MacBook Air

    If for some strange reason it wasn’t before, thin is officially in as far as notebooks are concerned. At least that’s what seems to be the case with Lenovo as it answers the MacBook Air with the ThinkPad X300. It’s thin, yes, but not quite as thin as the Air (the Air fits in an envelope, the X300 merely fits on top of a newspaper or whatever that is on the left there… Read More
