Lenovo has popped up with a handful of new products recently, among them being the ThinkPad Yoga, a flexible hybrid laptop with a touchscreen panel that can fold all the way back into a tablet-like mode. This follows the ThinkPad X240 we reviewed last month, and rather than sporting the X240's extremely long battery life and somewhat thick body, Lenovo elected to give the ThinkPad Yoga a more conservative, universal appeal -- namely, a thin, flat profile and a slightly less no-nonsense design, something accompanied by a high-end 12.5-inch FHD touchscreen display. Read on for our full SlashGear review to how the ThinkPad Yoga fared.
There's a call for Chrome OS in schools - so says Lenovo with their newest device, the ThinkPad X131e Chromebook. This device works with a rugged exterior with a rubber bumper around the top cover as well as "stronger covers" to protect the machine in case of drops during a normal school day. This machine is the newest in an ever-expanding series of Chromebook devices from a wide variety of manufacturers here on the tail end of 2013.
This week we're taking a look at the latest and greatest from Lenovo in the Ultrabook and convertible space for Windows 8 computing. Their new and fancy ThinkPad Helix was shown off plenty at CES, but today we're giving it another peek in its final shipping form. Keyboard dock and all. The Helix is a full Windows 8 machine classified as an Ultrabook, that doubles as a powerful Win 8 tablet so read on for our thoughts.
It's time for some HTC One action with a confirmation from the very source - coming up quick! This year's USA State of the Union address saw a massive 1.36 million tweets - and one awkward follow-up response. Rumors of a Samsung smart watch have begun to surface after many Apple iWatch tips have taken hold. Be sure to check our Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review for great justice - pen and dock included!
Lenovo's Thinkpad Helix, a convertible tablet, was originally slated to release this month, but a comment from the company on its Facebook page states that the date has changed. The Helix is now delayed "until March or April." No other information is available concerning the delay, with the comment stating that more details will be coming soon.
This year at CES we saw one whole heck of a lot of PCs, quite a few of them working with Windows 8 - but most of them focusing on their unique hardware offerings to the point where Microsoft's offering seemed almost secondary. One cannot deny the influence of the touch-friendly nature of Windows 8 on the other hand, and starting right away with the very first PC we had hands-on time with, touchscreen controls were right at the center of our attention: the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC is first on our list of hands-on deliveries.
This week we've gotten both our first introduction to the newest in Lenovo's Windows 8 wares and a first hands-on experience with gems such as the ThinkPad Helix. This machine is one of the new breed of transformable tablet PCs running full Windows 8 with a touchscreen monitor and full keyboard, but it's got a bonus: you can flip it around backward and plug it back in the other way around.
We've arrived at another Friday evening, which means that the weekend lies ahead. Today, as many of you probably already know, was the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Apple paid tribute to Jobs in a new video released today, and it was announced that three modified MacBook Pros will be auctioned off in memory of Jobs. On the lighter side of things, Lenovo is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ThinkPad with a look back through time, and Samsung's profits for Q3 2013 managed to break company records (not an easy thing to do, considering how popular Samsung is).
4K TV, Windows tableteering, segment straddling smartphones, and cross-company sniping: another year, another IFA. We've seen the show coalesce around a few key themes before, and 2012 proved no different, as manufacturers took a suck-it-and-see strategy to try to cash in on holiday hardware sales. As always, the specter of Apple loomed heavy, despite the Cupertino firm's resolute absence. Read on for the highlights of IFA 2012.
