Lenovo ThinkPad SL-series brings low-cost WWAN connectivity

It's not all glib home users who are in line for some new Lenovo fun; business users may be slightly more predictable in their usage, but that doesn't mean they're satisfied with last year's ThinkPad.  The new SL-series of SMB notebooks - the SL300, SL400 and SL500 - all have an options list weighed under with choices such as mobile broadband, Blu-ray and more.

Lenovo X200 new specs & photos emerge

Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad X200 ultraportable, which was recently tipped in a company presentation, has been spotted and profiled by 51nb, a Chinese notebook forum.  Not only did they dig up two new images of the ultraportable, but the spec sheet too; we now know that it uses a 45nm Intel Centrino 2 + VPro Core 2 Duo CPU running at up to 2.4GHz, has a 12-inch WXGA LCD screen (or, in the case of the Tablet version, a touchscreen) and an SSD storage option alongside conventional hard-drives.

Lenovo announce $16.4bn sales in last year

Lenovo has released their end-of-year 2007/08 financial results, and shareholders are likely to be pleased.  Consolidated sales overall increased by 17-percent over the previous year, to $16.4bn, while shipments of PCs and laptops specifically grew by 22-percent (compared to a 16-percent industry average).  Notebooks made up 61-percent of total computing sales in the last quarter, up 38-percent from the year before, which Lenovo are crediting to increased general demand for portable devices and a larger range (including the ThinkPad X300 we were so impressed with last month).

Lenovo opts for widescreen-only in mainstream notebook range

Lenovo has hammered another nail into the 4:3 laptop display coffin with the quiet removal of its standard ratio T61 from its online store.  It means that all of the company's mainstream notebooks - whether in the ThinkPad, IdeaPad or 3000-series lines - are only available with widescreen LCDs.  The X61 - in Lenovo's ultraportable range and produced in standard and Tablet PC versions - is now the only remaining 4:3 option.

Touchscreen 40GB Eee hack on eBay for crazy $3,200

Could you ever bring yourself to spend more on a ASUS Eee than the price of a new MacBook Air, Lenovo X300 or Sony VAIO TZ?  Currently up on eBay for a whopping $3,200 (or open to bids from $2,800), this uber-Eee takes an innocent new 8GB model and adds a built-in 32GB Patriot XT drive, a touchscreen and updated WiFi card supporting A/B/G/N.  There's even an FM transmitter, to play audio through a car radio, and the overclocked ultraportable is running Windows XP SP3 with 2GB of RAM.

Button-sized Curie module is Intel’s latest wearable bet

Button-sized Curie module is Intel’s latest wearable bet

Intel has almost pretty much given up on the smartphone market, except for a few models from ASUS and Lenovo, so it has set its eyes on wearables instead, where things are still somewhat in flux and no clear winner is in sight just yet. In 2013, it announced the Intel Quark, what is to be its bargaining chip (no pun intended) in the wearables race. Now at CES 2015, it is announcing the latest real-world application of that chip: the button-sized Intel Curie module.

Five second boot mod for ASUS Eee PC

Five second boot mod for ASUS Eee PC

Netbooks would be a whole lot more believable as companion devices if they switched on as fast as, say, a smartphone or PDA.  However the combination of Intel's Atom and generally wheezing specs tend to make starting-up - or resuming from standby - measure more around the one minute mark than anything less.  Two Intel engineers might be looking to change all that, though; at a recent Linux conference, they demonstrated an ASUS Eee PC that could boot to a Fedora desktop in just five seconds.

Sony are preparing to drop a new VAIO ultraportable, the TT-series, which will replace the VAIO TZ.  Make no mistake, this is no netbook; according to SonyStyle's VAIO advisor, the four model TT-range will top out with a 1.4GHz Intel SU9400 Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM and dual 128GB SSDs in RAID setup.  The top-spec VGN-TT190UBX also has a Blu-ray burner and HDMI output, and weighs just 2.87-pounds; every model has an 11.1 inch LED screen with XBRITE-DuraView running at 1366 × 768.
