Lenovo “mobile device shipments” to beat Samsung in 2015

Lenovo “mobile device shipments” to beat Samsung in 2015

There's a report out today that suggests Lenovo is about to overtake Samsung in mobile device shipments, and that they'll do so inside of the year 2015. This report comes from Digitimes, citing their own "Digitimes Research", and suggests that "Lenovo is estimated to beat Samsung Electronics in mobile computing device shipments... by about one million units in 2014 and become the second-largest mobile computing device brand vendor worldwide, only behind Apple." The only problem with calling this race is in the term "mobile device" - mostly because to them, this only means notebooks and tablets, not smartphones.

Lenovo snaps MacBooks to push YOGA 3 Pro

Lenovo snaps MacBooks to push YOGA 3 Pro

To make clear that the Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro does, indeed, bend all the way backwards, Lenovo has taken to the mall to drop some pranks on unsuspecting shoppers. Working with the UCB Comedy crew and Above Average, Michael Kayne, Shaun Diston, and Jim Santangeli bring on some pre-broken MacBooks and some Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro units to a demonstration kiosk for the public. Watch as the YOGA's hinge allows it to bend all the way backwards, and the MacBooks'... doesn't bend quite so easily.

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Finally, a truly great Windows laptop. Lenovo's YOGA 3 Pro is thin, yet robust. It's powerful enough to handle tasks like video processing and light gaming, yet its battery life is optimized to such a degree that I'm able to use it like I would my main work notebook. The Lenogo YOGA 3 Pro transforms between a notebook, a touch display, and a tablet, but its abilities aren't just in place to be retrofitted to Windows 8's touchscreen intentions. The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro isn't perfect, but it's very, very close.

ASUS EeeBook X205 Windows laptop now available

ASUS EeeBook X205 Windows laptop now available

Back in September we got our first look at ASUS's sleek budget-friendly EeeBook X205, a thin laptop running Windows 8.1 and offering users a so-called smartphone experience. Though we got all the details on the machine a couple months ago, ASUS was quiet on when it would launch the notebook, something that is no longer of any concern: the laptop is now available, and is priced at $199 USD. The device is poised to take on HP's recent similar offering, the equally budget-friendly Stream 11 notebook.

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP Omen gaming notebook rivals Razer for the mainstream

HP may not be the first name you think of when you consider meaty gaming notebooks, but the company is hoping to change all that with the HP Omen. Taking on potent rivals like Razer's Blade and models from Alienware, the Omen seems determined to strike as much of a balance as it can between power and affordability (something we can't always say about the gaming competition). So, there's no outlandish 4K display, but that does help with the price of entry.

Acer V Nitro Black Series laptops gain 4K option

Acer V Nitro Black Series laptops gain 4K option

Back in late September we were introduced to Acer's V Nitro Black Edition Series of gaming-centric laptops. These machines came in two forms for those in the United States, both of them bringing Full HD 1080p resolution on displays measuring in at 15.6-inches and 17.3-inches, respectively. Those who need a display with a little more oomph will soon have a new option in the product lineup, the company revealed earlier this week: a 15.6-inch notebook with a 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD resolution.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro pit against Macbook Air in new Microsoft ad

Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro notebook is thin, it's transformable, and it would appear to be Microsoft's newest favored son as it does battle with the MacBook Air in Microsoft's newest TV ad spot. This device is thinner than the MacBook Air. It's able to bend backwards far enough to turn itself into a tablet. It's got a touchscreen. It's also very similar looking to the MacBook Air from afar - but they really couldn't be more difference, when it comes down to it.

Can this $200 HP Windows notebook beat back Chrome?

Can this $200 HP Windows notebook beat back Chrome?

It's time for HP's Stream laptop, a rather striking piece of equipment with a price point that's aiming directly as the new age of low-cost notebooks. HP also makes Chromebooks, so it's not as if they're aiming to destroy the Chromebook universe entirely. On the contrary. It's clear that HP has seen the light with low-cost machines, that there's a big market for them, and has brought on a Windows-toting notebook that fits the bill. And it's blue, too - Horizon Blue!

HP Stream 11 Windows laptop now available

HP Stream 11 Windows laptop now available

Last last month HP rolled the red carpet out for its new colorful -- and more importantly, cheap -- Stream laptops. Their appeal is multi-fauceted, and though they aren't the most powerful machines out there, the mixture of a sub-$200 price tag and the inclusion of Windows 8.1 makes the HP Stream 11, in particular, a milestone machine for the company. When it was announced, HP stayed quiet on the laptop's launch date, and now about a month later it has quietly changed the machine's status to "available".
