Move over, Intel Compute Stick; there’s a new sheriff in town in the miniature PC realm. Lenovo today pulled the wraps off its ideacentre Stick 300 which manages to cram an Intel Atom processor into a stick that measure just 3.94-inches x 1.5-inches x 0.59-inches. The minuscule ideacentre Stick 300 is powered by an Intel Atom Z3735F “Bay Trail” processor — which has a base frequency of 1.33GHz and can burst to 1.83GHz — and comes configured with 2GB of RAM.

Lenovo and Microsoft have teamed up to offer Lenovo-brand PC users a smarter Cortana experience. The way they've accomplished that is by pairing Cortana with REACHit, the latter of which Lenovo designed to help users manager their files and find what they're looking for in a faster, more efficient way. By integrating REACHit with Cortana, the latter's search capabilities are greatly expanded. The two technologies play off each other to extend the sources from which content can be found. Once a user creates a unique Lenovo ID, Cortana and REACHit can be utilized to access a wide variety of data... Read more...
Who knew keyboards could be so exciting? Hot on the heels of KFC’s Tray Typer comes a decidedly cooler keyboard from Lenovo. The company used the spotlight at Tech World today to announce the Smart Cast smartphone, which has a projector that can create a virtual keyboard on just about any surface. Tell me that isn’t way more exciting than a keyboard food tray.  Lenovo released a YouTube video demonstrating the Smart Cast phone, but it hasn’t provided many details. The laser projector can output an image on the wall by projecting from the end of the phone when the device is lying flat.... Read more...
Earlier this morning, Lenovo covered its bases in the consumer space with three new notebook lines. Tonight, the company has turned its attention to the business-oriented ThinkPad 10 tablet (you can read our review of the previous model here), which has received a thorough makeover with improved performance and admirable battery life. Front and center is the 10.1-inch 1900x1200 IPS display that supports 10-point multi-touch and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 (an optional Anti-Glare Film is a $30 option). Powering ThinkPad 10 is either the brand spanking new Intel Atom x5-Z8500 (1.44GHz base, 2.24GHz... Read more...
Lenovo has been dominating the PC sales chart for the past few years thanks to an aggressive pricing strategy and generally rock solid products. The Chinese OEM is hoping to extend its lead in the consumer space with the release of a few new notebooks aimed at the consumer market: The Z41, Z51, and IdeaPad 100. The 4.63-pound Lenovo Z41 and 5.07-pound Z51 are multimedia workstations cut from the same cloth, with the former bringing a 14-inch screen and the latter upping the ante slightly with a 15-inch display. Both displays are Full HD (1920x1080) with a brightness of 200 nits. In addition, both... Read more...
There's evidence to suggest that China's smartphone market is headed towards saturation. According to the number crunchers at International Data Corporation, smartphone sales in China dipped 4 percent year-on-year with 98.8 million units shipped in the first quarter of 2015. This is the first time in six years that China's seen the smartphone market contract on an annual basis. Compared to the previous quarter, smartphone sales are down 8 percent in China as inventory was built up at the end of last year. What these numbers suggest is that most people in China who want a smartphone already own... Read more...
We were all hyped up about Lenovo’s latest LaVie Z series of tablets and convertibles, which both went on sale this week. After all, both models — first announced at CES — offer 13-inch QHD displays, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Even more impressive is that the LaVie Z (notebook) weighs in at just 1.87 pounds while the LaVie Z 360 (convertible) weighs only slightly more at 2.04 pounds. However, the Consumer Reports have taken a little bit of wind out of our sails with some troubling news regarding the LaVie Z 360. The folks at Consumer Reports ordered a brand new LaVie 360...

The majority of high-end smartphones seem stuck at 3GB, though that's finally beginning to change. Asus kicked things off with its ZenFone 2, the first smartphone to boast 4GB, and Xiamoi followed suit with the Mi Note Pro. Keeping the momentum going, Lenovo is getting ready to release a new handset, the K80, also with 4GB of RAM.What's also interesting about the K80 is that Lenovo didn't go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon System-on-Chip (SoC) or any other ARM-based part, instead opting for a 64-bit Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.8GHz, Chinese-language website China Mobile reports. The number of... Read more...
Remember when tablets were supposed to render the PC market obsolete? Yeah, that may have been a slight overreaction by analysts to an emerging category that grew quickly due to the initial excitement, but now that the dust has settled, we can see just how unfounded those fears were. After all, another 68.5 million PCs were shipped and added to the tally in the first quarter of 2015 alone, with Lenovo leading the way. Sure, that represents 6.7 percent year-over-year decline in shipments, but we're still talking about tens of millions of PCs in a single quarter, 14.2 million of which landed in the... 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.

When the Android Wear platform was unveiled last year, the star of the show was undoubtedly the Motorola Moto 360. With its stainless steel body and round display, the smartwatch looked futuristic while retaining styling that was somewhat familiar to traditional timepieces. However, it’s been a year since the original Moto 360 was unveiled and there have been a number of round-faced Android Wear devices that have either hit the market or will in the coming months. LG has both the G Watch R and the Watch Urbane, while Huawei came completely out of left field with its “Watch.” Motorola, of course,... 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...
