Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review – a subtle but solid update

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Review – a subtle but solid update

The Lenovo X240's older sibling has arrived, and it is aptly named the Lenovo X250. Many of the previous model's design choices have carried over into the model, but as always the update brings with it, you know, updates for a slightly more modern world. The X250 is a relatively compact laptop with a rugged design and, perhaps the best part of both it and the X240, it has phenomenal battery life, particularly if you’re using the largest secondary battery. Is it notable enough to justify upgrading from the X240? Read our full SlashGear review to find out!

Review: Lenovo W550s — an ultraportable workstation

Review: Lenovo W550s — an ultraportable workstation

Lenovo has been busy rolling out all manner of flexible, slim, and otherwise noteworthy laptops and tablets, but that doesn't mean it has turned a blind eye to one of its staple offerings: workstations. These laptops are designed for the demanding users among us, those who need a dedicated keypad for cranking out numbers, a large display, and hardware able to render animations or similar tasks. The W550s is no exception, but it comes with a twist: it is ultraportable, at least as far as workstations go, and it is surprisingly thin for all that it offers.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) — better than ever

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) — better than ever

Lenovo has found favor among business users with its ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops, the latest of which has finally arrived. In many ways the 2015 iteration of the X1 Carbon is the same as the previous generation, bringing with it refinements that improve the overall product rather than any substantial changes to the design itself. It's still the same business-chic ultrabook light enough tote around while traveling but powerful enough to meet demanding needs; it is, however, a little more useable than the last version, the reasons for which we've detailed in this full review.

There are several Yoga-brand PCs available at this point, and so the big question is: does the Yoga 3 14 stand out among them, or is it a rehash of a laptop we've already seen a time or two? Read on to find out!

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14

If you've seen one ThinkPad, you've seen them all. Such was a common opinion back when ThinkPads were IBM's heavy, obtrusive bricks, but as Lenovo has shown in recent years, times have changed and so has the brand. ThinkPads have retained their business-chic stylings, but have been updated with slim, sleek, and -- more often than not -- flexible bodies. The ThinkPad Yoga 14 is no exception; the laptop has all the markings of being a ThinkPad (including that beloved keyboard), as well as a modern and robust design that'll help it appeal to the newest generation of techies. Does it stand out enough among Lenovo's other recent ThinkPads to be worth the attention, however? Read our review to find out.
