Lenovo has done a remarkable job of classing up its business notebooks without sacrificing the features and build-quality that make the ThinkPad line so popular with road warriors. It recently updated its ThinkPad X1 Yoga with an excellent 2560x1440 OLED panel, for example, making it even more attractive to executives. But the company hasn’t forgotten users who dig more utililitarian builds, and don't need the latest bells and whistles. The ThinkPad X260 is all about functionality, portability, and quality. It is a no-nonsense road warrior. At about $765, the ThinkPad X260 has the lowest starting... Read more...
Are Microsoft and Lenovo conspiring to keep Linux off Signature Edition PCs? Not so says both companies. The issue came to light after one user bought a Lenovo Yoga 900 Signature Edition convertible with the intention of installing Linux on it. However, his efforts were thwarted, as the machine refused to install Linux. Yesterday, Lenovo confirmed that Linux cannot be installed on the machine because there are no OS-specific drivers for the device’s proprietary RAID configuration. Given that this machine has been designed to work with Windows 10, it should come as no surprise that Lenovo probably... Read more...
If you're a Linux fan who's on the hunt for a new notebook, you have plenty of options. As weird as it might sound, even Microsoft's own "Signature" line of machines could prove tempting, as the requirements a notebook needs to obtain that status are very strict. However, as a reddit post highlights, Linux users need to exercise extreme caution when considering to take this route. reddit user BaronHK purchased a Yoga 900 ultrabook from Lenovo with full intention to install Linux on it. When the time came to make the move, it didn't work, and so he decided to leave some feedback about... Read more...
Move over Microsoft, Chinese rival (and hardware partner, as it were) Lenovo has another potential Surface killer on its hands. This time it's the Miix 710, a rather sleek looking detachable sporting a 12.2-inch In Plane Switching (IPS) display with a 2160x1440 resolution (3:2 aspect ratio) powered by Intel's recently introduced Kaby Lake architecture. Like the Surface , Lenovo gives users a limited range of passively cooled processor options. In this case, users can choose from an Intel Core m3-7Y30 SoC (1GHz to 2.6GHz), Core i5-7Y54 (1.2GHz to 3.2GHz), and Core i7-7Y75 (1.3GHz to 3.6GHz). All... Read more...

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....

If you’re a regular HotHardware reader, then you already know that we came away mighty impressed with Lenovo’s Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones (you can read Dave’s review of the pair here). The smartphones look good, have respectable performance, and are expandable using the versatile Moto Mods accessories system. But while the Moto Z and Moto Z Force beat their chests with 5.5-inch QHD displays, Snapdragon 820 processors and 4GB of RAM, there’s definitely enough room in the family for another, less expensive model. That brings us to the Moto Z Play, which Lenovo announced today for the U.S.... Read more...
Lenovo is refreshing its 2-in-1 convertible notebook lineup with the introduction of the new, high-end Yoga 910. The 3.04-lb aluminum unibody device combines striking good looks with plenty of power for mobile professionals. At the heart of the Yoga 910 are Intel’s new range of Kaby Lake processors. The convertible is available with up to a seventh generation Core i7 processor, which can be backed with up to 16GB of memory. Integrated Intel HD Graphics are all that you’re going to find in this machine, which is fine for the target audience. Storage options are plentiful, with Lenovo offering customers... Read more...
When it comes to Windows 10-based convertible devices these days, it seems like we see more of the same day in and day out. We’ve seen dozens of 11-, 12-, 13- and even 14-inch convertibles that contort into various configurations or incorporate detachable keyboards. However, Lenovo is spicing things up a bit with the launch of the all-new Yoga Book. The Yoga Book consists of two display panels that are joined by Lenovo’s 360-degree watchband hinge. It is the world thinnest 2-in-1 convertible, measuring in at 9.6mm thick when closed. The 10.1-inch (FHD) device is also incredibly light, weighing... Read more...
In the smartphone market, Microsoft has to fight for scraps leftover from Android and iOS, and comparatively there aren't many to go around. Rather than bury its head in denial, Microsoft's been making mobile versions of its key programs like Office available on other OSes, and now Lenovo has agreed to pre-load several of Microsoft's productivity apps on some of its Android handsets. Microsoft Office, OneDrive, and Skype are among the apps that will come pre-installed on select Lenovo devices in what the two companies are calling a "deepening of their strategic relationship." The benefit for Microsoft... Read more...
Motorola recently launched two new flagship Droid offerings, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. We really liked them for their ultra-premium design, strong performance, and innovative Moto Mods add-on features. However, Moto is also ushering in a refresh of their more mainstream, cost-effective Moto G family as well. We last looked at the Moto G in 2014. We weren't blown away by performance, however, we were impressed how much the device managed to offer for just $149. The Moto G delivered Android’s core experience with good enough web browsing and general productivity performance to stand... Read more...
When it comes to gaming desktops, many companies like to go for shock and awe when it comes to exterior design. Lenovo is definitely looking to make some noise with its new IdeaCentre Y710 Cube, which packs a ton of power into a menacing, small form-factor chassis with a built-in carrying handle for easy transport. Despite having Cube in its name, the IdeaCentre Y710 is actually more rectangular in shape, with dimensions of 15.48” x 9.38” x 12.38” — the chassis itself weighs 16.3 pounds. However, what you really want to hear about is what’s inside, and the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube doesn’t disappoint.... Read more...
Last month, the partnership between Motorola and Lenovo seemed to crystalize when the combined company stepped out with its first co-branded smartphone products that will ship here in the United States. Lenovo acquired Motorola's Mobility division from Google a couple of years back, but has rightfully lead with the iconic Moto brand for new smartphone (and smartwatch) product introductions since the acquisition. It wasn't until we saw Lenovo's Product Engineer/Spokesman, Ashton Kutcher take the stage last month at Lenovo Tech World to launch the new Moto Z and Moto Z Force, that it became apparent...

Motorola today announced its third-generation Moto E entry-level Android smartphone, and it’s unsurprisingly called the Moto E3. Unlike its predecessors, the Moto E3 has graduated from a 4.5-inch display and now includes a 5-inch HD display with a “built-in smudge-resistant screen protector.” We’re assuming that this means that the display has an oleophobic coating, although there’s no word on if Gorilla Glass is also in play here. Other features include an unspecified quad-core processor (although more than likely there’s some budget Qualcomm Snapdragon processor lurking inside), 8MP rear camera,... Read more...
