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. Click to enlarge. What you'll notice first about the notebook is that is just plain good looking. We found people staring at the Mocha... 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! The company is today introducing two new notebooks and one new desktop, the IdeaPad Y460p, IdeaPad Y560p and IdeaCentre K330. The IdeaPad Y460p and Y560p feature a sleek design and a familiar look from IdeaPads in the past. These 14”/15.6” laptops are available with up to Intel Core i7 processors, JBL speakers and Dolby Home Theater, and they come with up to 750GB of HDD space and up to 8GB DDR3-1333 memory. The IdeaPad Y460p and IdeaPad Y560p... Read more...
Lenovo's IdeaPad Y560D is an interesting system that initially caught our eye thanks to its 3D-capable display. 3D films and TVs have been declared hot ticket capabilities by the film industry and TV manufacturers, but this is the first 3D-capable notebook we've had in house. The Y560D isn't the only 3D laptop on the market, but it's priced with more of an eye towards mainstream consumers; most 3D notebooks to date have been aimed at the high-end/enthusiast market. At $1399 on sale the 560D isn't cheap, but it's a more affordable than most of the competition... Lenovo's IdeaPad Y560D 3D Laptop... Read more...

Well, isn't this a shame? Lenovo has been one of the few companies to show genuine interest in shipping a high-class product in the "smartbook" sector, but now the IdeaPad U1 is seeming to fade from view. Hardly anything has been mentioned about the device since its original introduction, and all the while smartbooks have proven to be less popular than originally expected. Some may say that the tablet killed the smartbook before it ever had a real chance at success, but the U1 looks like it could be a hit regardless. It's a hybrid PC that can operate as both a tablet and a laptop, and rather than... Read more...
Everyone's playing the 3D card these days. And when we say everyone, we really mean everyone. It's kind of crazy to think about how quickly 3D has re-risen to prominence, and now even PC makers are joining in. At first, there was 3D gaming on the desktop. 3D LCDs weren't too hard to find, and NVIDIA's 3D Vision kit helped gamers get the extra accessories they needed to indulge. But now, even the notebook makers are joining in. Lenovo is a company we never really expected to hop on the 3D bandwagon, but sure enough, they have become one of the first to ship a 3D laptop. The newest member of the... Read more...
It's a fact of life at this point: you might as well embrace the 3D assault, because it's coming at you whether you like it or not. 3D has managed to overtake the entire consumer electronics industry, and PC vendors are looking to make sure they don't miss any golden opportunities. 3D all-in-one PCs have already been announced by a number of companies, and NVIDIA has already debuted a "3D PC" category for use with their 3D Vision products. Now, Lenovo is bringing 3D capabilities to the IdeaPad line, a smart choice given how strange it would be to see a 3D ThinkPad. The IdeaPad Y560d is the company's... Read more...
We hope you're ready to dig through the details, because if you're in the market for a new Lenovo, the company has no fewer than ten new models to choose from starting today. Just about the entire consumer lineup is being refreshed, including a revamped version of the Z-Series, U-Series, IdeaCentre all-in-one and the H-Series of low-cost all-in-one PCs. The Z-Series kicks things off, with these bargian-priced multi-media notebooks (Z360, Z560 and Z565) bringing a nice balance of power, size and value. The machines come with a 13.3" or 15.6" display, an optional Blu-ray drive, Intel's new Core 2010... Read more...
Lenovo's IdeaPad line is somewhat unpredictable. In our estimation, it's the company's "fun" line of products; in other words, it's the range of notebooks that they can tinker with, while the ThinkPad caters to business-class users. The IdeaPad S10 line of netbooks has been going for a few years now, obviously with a good deal of success. But as netbooks become more and more popular, the risk of creating another "also-ran" increases. Lenovo is hoping to set its newest netbook apart from the crowd by doing a couple of things: dressing it up, and providing a multi-touch, swivel screen that... Read more...

Yesterday Lenovo introduced a bunch of new ThinkPad machines, with the new Edge, X100e and a few other machines headlining the show. Today, the company is making another push as CES gets ready to open its doors to the masses, with its IDEA-branded products getting a significant upgrade. Moreover, an all new product from Lenovo has been announced: its first smartbook ever. Let's get started with the IDEA lineup. The IdeaCentre A300 is the industry's thinnest all-in-one PC, measuring just 18.5mm thick and boasting an expansive 21.5" LED-backlit LCD panel. It runs Windows 7 and features an array of...

Most PC makers decided to push their new Windows 7 machines on October 22nd, the day that Microsoft officially launched its next generation OS into the public realm. Lenovo, however, decided to let the world breathe a bit, and we can't say that's such an awful strategy. Now, it has the spotlight to itself in the introduction of its new IdeaPad and IdeaCentre machines: three new notebooks (U150, U550 and Y550P) and three new desktops (B500, K300 and H230) are on deck, and all six of them have Win7 loaded on. All of the machines should be listed at Lenovo's site in order for customers to customize... Read more...
Lenovo's S10-2 is an somewhat of an odd proposition for netbook buyers. For those who completely missed out on the IdeaPad S10, this is a welcome update and a solid overall contender in the netbook space. For those familiar with the original, two feelings are apt to surface: bitterness and / or confusion. Indeed, the changes found on the IdeaPad S10-2 are minor, with most of the hardware remaining exactly the same. In fact, the vast majority of the tweaks are completely cosmetic, though we do think much thought went into this overhaul. Rather than dishing out a completely new netbook at the... Read more...
Oh my, Lenovo -- what has gotten into you? In case a new netbook -- the planet's first with Nvidia's Ion technology, at that -- wasn't enough, the company is also introducing three more new machines today. One all-in-one PC is being launched alongside two new notebooks, both of which promise adequate power and great design for a rather affordable price.First off, we've got the 20" desktop shown above, the IdeaCentre C300. For the longest while, those looking for an inexpensive PC were forced to buy the ugliest box known to man and put up with abysmal performance. This machine aims to change all... Read more...
