A new Lenovo laptop has appeared on the company's website today, but the posting seems to be premature: instead of on a product page, the maker's new E10-30 10-inch notebook has cropped up on a Mobile Support page. In it we get a low-res look at the machine and a run down of its specs.
This week the folks at Lenovo have suggested that - perhaps for the first time in a very long time - they’ve beaten Apple for PC sales in the United States. Lenovo makes a point to mention they’ve "surpassed Apple" for PC shipments in their financial fourth quarter in their press release titled "Lenovo Outperforms Market in 4th Quarter and Full Year 2013/14."
Lenovo has a new pen-enabled tablet, the ThinkPad 10, complete with a range of accessories including magnetically-attached keyboards and a handy desktop dock, for those who want some proper stylus support with their Windows 8.1. The Atom Z3795 quadcore powered slate has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 touchscreen with 10-finger multitouch, and runs for up to ten hours on a single charge.
Lenovo has outed its latest workstation, the ThinkStation P300, an entry-level desktop aimed at 3D designers, engineers, and CAD modelers who might occasionally want to move their PC around. Running Windows on Intel's Xenon E3-1200v3 processors with HD P4600 graphics, the P300 will be offered in two styles: a regular tower, and a small-form-factor version.
Waterproof smartphones aren't unheard of, but scoring one will usually involve investing in a higher-end smartphone than some people are willing to do. It is those consumers in particular that vendors will be targeting in 2015, according to sources.
Google is still hedging its bets on Chrome OS tablets, the company has confirmed, delivering touch initially but holding off on introducing new form-factors until it figures out if there's really a demand for them. Speaking during Intel's Chromebook event today, Caesar Sengupta, VP of product management at Google, insisted that the company was still in the "wait and see" stage.
Intel has embraced Chrome OS, outing the first batch of Celeron-branded Chromebooks from a clutch of manufacturers, as well as the first Core i3 Chromebooks. The launch - which includes Lenovo's new N20p and N20 Chromebooks - also includes a new Education Chromebook reference design aiming to bring more Chrome devices into classrooms.
