With Intel's recent launch of the Centrino 2 mobile platform, aka Montevina, you can be sure virtually all of the major notebook OEMs have been peddling their wares in an effort to hit the ground running during the back to school season this fall.  First out of the gate, delivering a Montevina thin-and-light to our labs, is Lenovo with their ever-popular, consistently well-built ThinkPad series.  The X200 is here.  All .8 inches thick and just under 3lbs of it...         In typical fashion Lenovo has engineered the X200 with clean, simple lines and a fit...

While some people are extremely impressed with smaller ultra-portables like the Eee PC, others want something with a little more performance and/or features.  Looking to meet this growing group of consumers is Lenovo with their new 11.1” IdeaPad U110 that we showed you a preview of here in our CES 2008 report. “The IdeaPad U110 features a smallish 11.1" LED-backlit WXGA display coupled with Intel's X3100 integrated graphics adapter.

While he may not have invented the Internet, Al Gore has played a major role in bringing the issue of Global Warming to the masses.  In his book and movie "An Inconvenient Truth", Gore made a compelling case, and whether his message convinced you or not, one thing is certain, it's clear people were listening.  Today, there is increased research and development searching for innovative solutions to energy conservation in virtually all areas of our lives.  Technologies are being improved to collect solar, wind, geo-thermal and water power, while alternative technologies...

Ever since Lenovo took over IBM's mobile division, the company has produced a steady stream of ThinkPad-branded notebooks, that fit essentially the same mold.  ThinkPads have been highly regarded almost as the defacto notebook of choice for corporate or professional types, but they didn't always appeal to mass market, mainstream consumers or enthusiasts.  At this year's CES however, Lenovo showed off a trio of notebooks designed to do just that.Lenovo's IdeaPad line of mobile computers is comprised of products ranging from a sleek, ultra light 11.1" designer notebook, to...

Lenovo just announced their second fiscal quarter results, ending Sept. 30th. Quarterly revenue jumped 20% to $4.4 billion, with pre-tax income of 125 million, up 177%. With results like these, Lenovo is convinced it no longer needs to rely on IBM branding for their Think series of products, and they plan to drop it two years earlier than planned."By making substantial progress on all of our critical priorities over the past few quarters, we're now a stronger, healthier company," said William Amelio, chief executive of Lenovo, in a press announcement relating to its quarterly results. The company... Read more...

Data. Can't live with it, can't live without it. We're sure you can all understand why we can't live without it, but you may be curious why we say we can't live with it. The problem with data is not the data itself but rather the users of that data. More accurately, we should say that the real problem (or challenge or opportunity, depending on your perspective) is the protection of and access to that data. A fine line exists between providing authorized users simple, unencumbered access to sensitive personal or company data and keeping unauthorized eyes from seeing that same data. In... Read more...
There are some debates that have raged since the dawn of time: evolution vs. creation, great taste vs. less filling, red vs. blue, and of course there is always the great mouse pad debate to consider.  Of course in this day and age everything gets a fancy new name, so the debate has actually changed from one of to 'mouse pad' or not to one of 'mousing surfaces'.If you've ever wondered why people might argue about mouse pads/mousing surfaces, or even us them in an era of optical mice, here's a snipped from Extreme Tech's article: "Would you pay $20, $40, or more for a mouse pad? Well, people... Read more...

Hello Everyone.  We're writing to let you all know that we've just posted a new article where we evaluate the features and performance of IBM / Lenovo's Z61p wide-screen mobile workstation. Here's a snip from the article... "In 2005 IBM sold the Thinkpad line to Chinese computer maker, Lenovo making it the 3rd largest computer vendor in the world. Under the agreement with Lenovo, IBM would retain its branding on the Thinkpad line for several years to follow. Shortly after the acquisition, Lenovo began producing new Thinkpads.... Read more...
Back in 1992 IBM introduced its Thinkpad line of laptop computers. Since that time the Thinkpad has become a staple in mobile business computing. Thinkpads have had a history of firsts in the laptop industry with the invention and usage of such innovative features as the Trackpoint, Thinklight, Ultrabay, biometric fingerprint reader, and Magnesium/Titanium composite construction. These types of innovative features have even landed IBM a spot in the New York Museum of Modern Art with the butterfly keyboard from the 1995 Thinkpad 701C. Thinkpad keyboards are synonymous with quality and durability... Read more...
While the article suggests $16 million in losses for unauthorized access and theft for 2006, the actual amount is likely much greater since many violations go unreported. A single violation could easily result in losses of this magnitude when the loss is associated with confidential data from a Fortune 500 company. While some IT managers circumnavigate this problem by simply isolating critical data and prohibit it from being transferred to mobil devices, this is not a practical solution in todays mobile society. I protect sensitive information using EncFS, a Linux encrypted virtual file system.... Read more...
