Ultrabooks may be selling like hotcakes but one area that has obviously been a challenge for notebook manufacturers is price point. Intel's $1,000 goal (not to mention their recent Ivy Bridge ULT-based $799 target) has been hard to hit, given all the pricey tech that goes into making these slim systems sing. Most have come in at well over the $1K mark – until recently. That brings us to the Lenovo IdeaPad U310, which has a price tag that, depending on the configuration, slides the machine into mainstream notebook territory. Today, we're taking a look at Lenovo's IdeaPad U310 Core i5-3317U... Read more...
The recent rise and fall of the netbook as a computer category made one thing clear: consumers are willing to sacrifice some screen size and power in the name of portability, but not as much as a netbook requires. On the other hand, many shoppers are willing to pay a premium for a thinner, lighter notebook, and that's where the ultrabook comes in. As the Windows-based competitor to Apple's popular MacBook Air, the ultrabook category has been reasonably well-received. Intel created the term "ultrabook" last year and stirred up plenty of buzz about it at CES this January, promising systems that would... Read more...
If you always though Intel's Ultrabook form factor could use an injection of color, consider yourself on the same wavelength as Lenovo, which today announced the worldwide availability its apparently "coveted" IdeaPad U310 (13.3-inch) and U410 (14-inch) Ultrabook models powered by Intel's 3rd Generation Core processor line (Ivy Bridge). "Ultrabooks are an industry game changer that shift not only the way people think about laptop design, but also how much performance technology can be packed into such a thin and light device," said Peter Hortensius, president, Product Group, Lenovo. "Lenovo Ultrabooks... Read more...
Hope you're ready for a swarm of new notebooks, because that's what's happening this week. Lenovo is joining Acer and Asus (amongst others) by revealed two new machines, the IdeaPad U310 and U410. These guys use Intel's new 3rd-gen Core processors, and the company's investing quite a bit in advertising to make sure people know about it. The new Ultrabooks are available in a variety of vibrant colors including Sapphire Blue, Aqua Blue, Cherry Blossom Pink, Graphite Grey or Metallic Red, giving you plenty of color options starting at under $800. The 13.3-inch U310 and 14-inch U410 measure only 0.7-inch... Read more...
If you're looking for a well equipped laptop sporting AMD's new generation current generation 40nm graphics technology, Lenovo may have exactly what you've been pining for. Lenovo quietly slipped out its IdeaPad Y470p, a 14-inch notebook with an Intel Core i7 2670QM processor (2.2GHz, 6MB cache), 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and AMD Radeon HD 7690 graphics with 1GB of video memory. That's a solid foundation, folks. It also has a 750GB hard drive (5400 RPM), DVD burner, 2MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, GbE, HDMI, premium JBL speakers, three USB ports + USB/eSATA combo, 6-in-1 card...

More CES? More Lenovo? Yes to both. The company has just launched new laptops in the IdeaPad U Series, Y Series, S Series and Z Series, not to mention new guys in the IdeaCentre desktop range and the K Series desktop line. Oh, and the IdeaCentre B Series all-in-one line. Got all that? The IdeaPad U310 (13.3") and U410 are getting SSDs, Intel chips, and in the case of the latter, an NVIDIA GeForce 610M 1GB GPU. Both also have Intel's Wireless Display technology, and both are available in Aqua Blue, Cherry Blossom, Graphite Gray, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue and Spearmint. Lenovo introduced two mini laptops...

Is the netbook poised to make a return at CES? Hard to say at this point, but Lenovo's evidently planning to keep their lively IdeaPad range buzzing with an S110 model. The company has just released a teaser video of the IdeaPad S110, which promises to ship in four colors, include Wi-Fi / 3G buil-in, and include one of those zippy new Atom processors that Intel just unveiled earlier in the week. It's being called a "mini notebook," boasting a 10.1" display, 2MP webcam, 1080p support, USB 3.0 and a 98% full-size keyboard. Odd; a year ago, a 10.1" panel would've been a netbook. Perhaps Lenovo's trying... Read more...
The thin-and-light market is seriously heating up, and with CES 2012 just around the corner, Lenovo's hoping to sneak some sales in during the last few weeks of the 2011 holiday season. The IdeaPad U400 is a sleek, sexy machine, understated from top to bottom and aimed at mid-range buyers who have never had so many options. You can't really call this an Ultrabook (you'll need to ogle at Lenovo's IdeaPad U300s for that honor), but it's still super slick. And in its roomier 14-inch weight class, you actually have fewer options to pick from.  We're happy to see Lenovo continuing to serve this... Read more...
Lenovo's tablet decisions of late haven't exactly made the most sense. They announced a Windows 7 tablet recently that won't ship for some time, yet Windows 8 now makes the idea of a Windows 7 tablet just seem odd. And now, the company has introduced the IdeaPad A1… with a super old version of Android. That's right; the A1 will ship with Android 2.3, which isn't even a tablet-optimized build of the OS. It'll boast a 1.GHz single-core Cortex A8 CPU, two-finger capacitive touch, a 3MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a G-sensor, seven hours of battery life and a 1024x600...

Lenovo won't be sticking to just a single OS on their new line of tablets. The IdeaPad P1, which looks a lot like the K1, was also introduced this evening, but unlike that one, this slate uses Windows 7 instead of Android 3.1. Windows 7 hasn't had the easiest go on the tablet market -- it was never really engineered to work well with stylus/finger input, and with Windows 8 en route, there are doubts about what kind of traction a piece like this will get. The tablet may be more suited to business pros who just need a full-on copy of Win7 by their side. Thankfully, the device packs plenty of... Read more...
It's tablet night, and Lenovo's the one picking up the tab. For the Android fans, Lenovo has announced a new IdeaPad with Honeycomb (Android 3.1, to be exact): the IdeaPad Tablet K1. It will ship with a 1.0GHz dual-core Tegra 2 chip, a 10.1" (1280x800) display, up to 1GB of DDR2 memory, up to 64GB of SSD storage, integrated Bluetooth, 3G and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The tablet will also have integrated front and rear cameras (2MP/5MP), a microSD card reader, a mini-HDMI port and a docking port. The tablet's screen will support 10-point multi-touch, and there will be full support for Flash content as... Read more...
If you are in the market for an ultralight notebook with a gorgeous LED backlit LCD and don't want to spend more than $1,000, the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 should be on your short list. The U260's claim to fame is its 12.5-inch form-factor, making it larger than your average netbook--but at a mere 18mm thick and 3 lbs, it's almost as light as one. Lenovo claims the U260 is the first 12.5-inch ultralight machine on the market, and pricing starts at $899... Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Review: A Stylish Ultralight Notebook... Read more...

It's the holiday season, and it's the season for giving. And if you're Lenovo, the best way to do that is to give us new hardware to mull over!
