The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga. The X1 Carbon line was introduced in 2012, bringing a largely carbon-fiber filled construction to decrease weight and increase durability compared to their previous X1 ultrabooks, while still maintaining the classic ThinkPad design established way back by IBM. The ThinkPad Yoga line, introduced a year later in 2013, consists of smaller 11 and 13 inch 2-in-1 form factors with a reinforced hinge capable of folding beyond 180 degrees into tent, stand or even tablet modes....

We covered a lot of miles at CES 2016 this year, our fitness trackers often chirping "success" rather early in the day, but we saw a lot of people and a lot of tech gear in our travels. Some of it was hot - damn hot - some of it, not so much. There were some recurring themes this year, as with every year at CES it seems. The hot topics and trends this year were autonomous cars, virtual reality, more thin and light computing and of course more powerful gaming gear. Every Tech Web publication has its own short list of the best products showcased at CES 2016. We're going to run down our top 10 products... Read more...
As we covered earlier today, Lenovo has completely revamped their ThinkPad product lines for business and professional types, with not only the latest in platform technologies from Intel and others, like Skylake mobile CPUs and PCIe SSDs, but also some solid design updates and key feature additions. More and more, ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo are taking on design cues and features that were brought to market with the advent of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The new 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon is now both thinner and lighter at just 2.6 pounds, with Intel Skylake on board and an NVMe PCI Express... Read more...
Although the Consumer Electronics Show hasn’t officially started just yet, many exhibitors are already setup and demoing their latest wares at various locations away from the convention center. Our first stop today was at Lenovo’s suite, where the company was showing off a wide array of products, from mainstream, thin and light notebooks to powerful, multi-GPU powered gaming systems. We’ve got a few of Lenovo’s product announcements already posted if you’d like some additional reading and will have a companion hands on video going up shortly featuring Lenovo’s... Read more...
Lenovo is reTHINKing its product lineup for 2016 and from the looks of things, elite business users are going to be in for a real treat with a whole family of devices ranging from tablets to ultra-portables to thin desktop clients. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has always been one of our favorite ultraportable laptops, and today it just got a little bit more desirable. Lenovo bills the ThinkPad X1 Carbon as the “world’s lightest 14-inch business ultrabook,” and we’re not going to argue with its avowal. The ultrabook is now both thinner and lighter, coming at just 0.65mm thick and... Read more...
Lenovo is the world’s number one PC maker, and the Chinese OEM plans on keeping that honor for years to come. In an effort to stay ahead of the competition and respond to ever-changing customer tastes, Lenovo has announced a sweeping revamp of numerous products across its ideapad and YOGA product lines, all of which come preloaded with Windows 10 (or the older Windows 7 if you prefer). First up is a new addition to Lenovo’s expansive convertible family: the ideapad MIIX 700. This device features a spacious 12-inch display along with Intel’s newly announced, Skylake-based Core m7 processors. The... Read more...
Lenovo is beefing up its reliable ThinkPad E Series notebooks with a late summer/early fall refresh. The ThinkPad E Series is aimed at the bread and butter of the business notebook sector and is available in both 14-inch and 15.6-inch form-factors. This time around, Lenovo has four base configurations for the E-Series, with the E460 (14-inch) and E560 (15.6-inch) models both featuring Intel power. Base configurations start with a Celeron 3855U processor, but businesses that have enough coin can spring for a speedy Core i7 6500U processor. There are also numerous graphics options to appease every... Read more...
This is a good year for creative professionals that are constantly on the go. After watching the corporate world trot around with thin and light notebooks that sport bleeding-edge hardware and touchscreens, the content creation and workstation set is finally getting to enjoy features in their notebooks that many others take for granted. Lenovo in particular has pumped up its workstation line with a slick ultrabook that is loaded for bear. Lenovo even heeded the complaints of some critics and reviewers (including ours) about the workstation line’s touchpad and gave it a complete overhaul on... Read more...
The ThinkPad brand has been around for a long time; the first model was introduced by IBM way back in 1992 and its Lenovo offspring are still being produced to this day. And although technological advances over the past two decades have lead to ThinkPads that are lighter, much faster, and highly more cable than any model in the early 1990s could have ever imagined, there’s still a clear visual link between yesteryear and today with regards to design cues. But more could be done to further strengthen the link to the past, and as a result, Lenovo is seriously toying with the idea of making a... Read more...
The ThinkPad name has a storied history in the notebook sector. Originally developed under the helm of IBM, and passed on to Lenovo roughly a decade ago, ThinkPad notebooks are still considering some of the best in the business. Lenovo’s latest 2015 edition of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is no exception; the 13-inch class notebook is a strong performer and boasts excellent battery life thanks to its new Intel Broadwell processor architecture. With a base price of $1,299, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon carries with it a bit of a premium compared to other machines in its class, but it was still enough to earn... Read more...
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been through a few revisions now and it's easy to see why the product sells so well and why Lenovo continues to invest in the model lineage.  The ThinkPad X1 Carbon combines the sleek profile of a mainstream ultrabook with the durability and utility of Lenovo's classic ThinkPad line of business-class notebooks. With arguably some of the best notebook keyboard and trackpad setups in the market, the ThinkPad line is built for road warriors and demanding professionals first, but the X1 Carbon straddles the line with light-weight composite carbon fiber construction...

Lenovo had a rough go of it over the past few weeks. First, news broke that Lenovo had installed Superfish (widely regarded as adware) on some of its notebooks. As public outcry mounted, Lenovo offered a public apology and provided customers with instructions for removing Superfish. But all the negative publicity isn’t Lenovo’s only headache now: someone claiming to be a customer affected by the software has filed a lawsuit against Lenovo in California. And, they’re aiming for class-action status.  The plaintiff in the case is Jessica Bennett, who suspected that her... Read more...
Lenovo's Thinkpad 540 is a beast, but you didn't need us to tell you that. This professional-caliber laptop is probably more powerful than your average desktop PC. And if its price doesn't tip you off to the fact that this laptop is sporting some serious hardware—$1,600 for Lenovo's "ready to ship" iteration of the laptop; starting at $1,400 for the customize-it-yourself iteration—then the system's spec sheet will surely give it away.  When loaded up with the high-end hardware inside our the system, the Thinkpad 540 inches past $2,500, easily.Yet, for all of this...

Lenovo makes a big splash at CES every year with a bevy of new products, and 2015 is no exception. The world’s largest PC company is rolling out refreshed laptops, a new 24-inch monitor, and new ThinkPad Stack accessories. The headliner product for CES this year is obviously the latest version of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. In order to commemorate over one hundred million cumulative ThinkPad laptops sold, the third generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon has received some meaningful updates including a PCIe interface for the laptop’s SSD that is said to boost storage performance by 80 percent. ThinkPad X1 Carbon... Read more...
