  • Walt Mossberg reviews Lenovo ThinkPad X300

    Walt Mossberg took an early look at the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 about a week ago and promised a full review later. Later is now. He likes the MacBook Air competitor despite its limited storage options and high price tag, saying…
    “I can recommend the X300 for road warriors without hesitation, provided they can live with its two biggest downsides: a relatively paltry file-storage… 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

    [photopress:x300.jpg,full,center] Those looking for a PeeCee version of Apple’s MacBook Air might want to start poking around to find details about the rumored Lenovo ThinkPad X300. Word is it’ll clock in with a similar 13.3-inch screen, weight just 2.5 pounds, and also feature a 64GB SSD HD. Unlike the Air, it has an interated DVD burner and optional WiMAX for about $2750. Now… Read More

  • Lenovo's slim power adapter: a taste of the future


    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m tired of big-ass power bricks. It’s like they put the entire computer in there and the laptop itself is just a convenient place for the keyboard and screen. Well, Lenovo’s had enough too! Their slim power “brick” is more like a power pita, although apparently they want you to carry around an entire zoo of adapters… Read More

  • Who would buy Motorola's handset division?

    Woe is Motorola. Last Thursday it announced that it might (or might not) try to sell off its mobile handset division and then had to check how many bars it had because it seemed like nobody heard a thing. According to BusinessWeek, “Of the top five cell-phone makers, all but Motorola posted growth in revenue and sales last year.” Motorola is currently third worldwide, behind Nokia… Read More

  • Lenovo sells off mobile unit that nobody knew existed

    Well how do you like that? Lenovo has cell phones — another reminder that the United States isn’t the only country in the universe (or world, for that matter). Lenovo had cell phones, I should say, as its recently announced that it’ll sell off the mobile phone unit for $100 million in order to concentrate on computers. Good for you, Lenovo. It’s hard enough having a… Read More

  • Rumor Smashed: Lenovo not outsourcing to Taiwan

    This is not happening according to my Lenovo rep. No… the press reports that note Lenovo is moving ThinkPad production from China to Taiwan are incorrect. There are no plans to change ThinkPad production. Read More

  • Lenovo outsourcing its manufacturing to Taiwan


    The article is a little vague (an ambiguous summary of some second-hand information from a Chinese newspaper) but apparently Lenovo is going to be hiring Taiwanese manufacturers for its notebooks rather than keep it all in the family. The laptops we saw were pretty nice, so let’s hope this is a sign that they’re getting lots of orders and can’t keep up with demand. Lenovo… Read More

  • Lenovo lets loose three IdeaPads: Y710, Y510, U110

    Ever since my conversion into the Apple race, I tend to shake my head at other notebook manufacturers and think their hardware isn’t as nice or pretty or whatever. I obviously come to my senses shortly after and take another look at it from an objective standpoint. More often than not I see the error of my ways, but sometimes crap is just crap and there’s no getting around that. I… Read More

  • Acer Will Grow Gateway, Get Access To Packard Bell

    So for $710 million, Acer bought Gateway — the same company that was worth $7 billion back in 1997 and purchased eMachines in 2004. Its fall from grace is a testament to the importance of good management and an even better business model. Read More

  • Lenovo Wants Packard Bell

    PC manufacturer/IBM buyer Lenovo today declared its intent to purchase Packard Bell. So far, not many details are available about the acquisition. Seems both companies would rather not comment on the deal right now. I wonder why… Oh wait. That’s right. No one gives a shit about Packard Bell anymore and hasn’t since 1993. My mistake! Does Packard Bell make anything still? Read More

  • Lenovo Has Linux On The Brain, Will Release Laptops With The OS This Year

    Lenovo will release laptops that have Linux instead of Windows later this year. I know, I know, this means the end of Microsoft as we know it… hellfire, dark clouds… Reuters, can’t be bothered to explain why Lenovo is making the switch, but it does go into great detail, in true reverse pyramid style, explaining how Dell announced a few months ago that it too was making the… Read More
