Lenovo is showing its flexibility as the world’s largest PC OEM with the release of two new products under its YOGA product family. The YOGA 900 convertible laptop and YOGA Home 900 all-in-one PC both run Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system and keep portability in mind. The YOGA 900 is being touted as the world’s thinnest Core i-series convertible, measuring in at just 14.9mm thick. At the center of the 2.9-pound YOGA 900 is a 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200x1800) IPS display, which can be repositioned into laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes. The display is attached to the base of the machine using... Read more...
Tech titans Intel and Microsoft are joining forces with the top three PC makers in the world -- that would be Lenovo, HP, and Dell, in that order (by market share) -- to blitz consumers with a new ad campaign that they collectively hope will enlighten the masses on what a Windows 10-based, Intel-powered system can do. The slogan they've chosen to run with is "PC Does What?!," which will kick off in full effect this coming Monday, October 19. In the meantime, this dream team ensemble has released a spattering of short advertisements, all available to watch to on YouTube courtesy of Intel. There's... Read more...
Google’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will begin beaming down to Nexus devices starting this week, and soon after, we’ll see a mad dash by countless Android OEMs to provide the update to their most recently released devices. If previous Android releasers are any indication, that rollout schedule may take a while — after all, as of September 7th, just 21 percent of Android devices are running Android 5.0 Lollipop a year after its release. Luckily for owners of Motorola smartphones, the company has already compiled a list of its smartphones that will receive Marshmallow. The list includes: 2015... Read more...
When Microsoft first announced the Surface Pro back in 2012 (it launched in early 2013), many Apple fans snickered. Here was Microsoft, releasing a somewhat thick and heavy tablet that not only had a kickstand, but also an “odd” cover that doubled as a keyboard. And to top things off, the device made use of a stylus. The late Apple CEO Steve Jobs famously said in 2010, “If you see a stylus, they blew it.”  And many people thought that Microsoft did blow it, writing off nearly $1 billion in costs related to its Surface tablets during the first year. But Microsoft forged ahead with the Surface... Read more...
It wasn’t that long ago that Lenovo debuted its YOGA Tab 2 tablets, complete with Full HD displays and AnyPen Technology. But given that we’re talking about the world’s largest PC OEM, the company doesn’t simply sit idle for too long; it’s constantly iterating to make sure that it stays ahead of its tough competition. So here we are today witnessing the introduction of the YOGA Tab 3 and its higher-spec’d YOGA Tab 3 Pro Android 5.1 Lollipop tablets. The lesser of the two, the YOGA Tab 3, is available in both 8-inch and 10-inch screen sizes (both with a resolution of 1280x800). It also incorporates... Read more...
Motorola made quite a splash with its first generation Moto 360 smartwatch. It was one of the first Android Wear smartwatches to hit the market, and because of its round display, became the immediate flag bearer for the wearable platform. Early sales numbers confirmed its popularity with buyers. Now, however, as new competition has entered the fray — including entries from Apple with the Apple Watch and Samsung with the Gear S2 — Motorola is ready to deliver a second generation smartwatch that solves most of the complaints of the previous generation model.And of course we just happend to be on...

Lenovo is the world’s number one PC maker, and the Chinese OEM plans on keeping that honor for years to come. In an effort to stay ahead of the competition and respond to ever-changing customer tastes, Lenovo has announced a sweeping revamp of numerous products across its ideapad and YOGA product lines, all of which come preloaded with Windows 10 (or the older Windows 7 if you prefer). First up is a new addition to Lenovo’s expansive convertible family: the ideapad MIIX 700. This device features a spacious 12-inch display along with Intel’s newly announced, Skylake-based Core m7 processors. The... Read more...
Lenovo is beefing up its reliable ThinkPad E Series notebooks with a late summer/early fall refresh. The ThinkPad E Series is aimed at the bread and butter of the business notebook sector and is available in both 14-inch and 15.6-inch form-factors. This time around, Lenovo has four base configurations for the E-Series, with the E460 (14-inch) and E560 (15.6-inch) models both featuring Intel power. Base configurations start with a Celeron 3855U processor, but businesses that have enough coin can spring for a speedy Core i7 6500U processor. There are also numerous graphics options to appease every... Read more...
It looks as though we may be inching even closer to a reveal date for Motorola’s second generation Moto 360 smartwatch. The first generation model took the Android Wear market by storm with its eye-catching round display and quickly went on to become a best-seller. Motorola is looking for another hit, but does it have the right recipe for success this time around? Motorola at least looks to be taking an approach championed by Apple with Apple Watch: two different sizes. Apple quickly identified that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t always work when it comes to smartwatches, and that men and... Read more...
The PC market has been limping along for years and the lackluster sales have taken a toll on Lenovo, which announced today that it is planning to lay off as many as 3,200 employees. The company simultaneously announced plans to restructure its Mobile Business Group (MBG), which includes Motorola, in an effort to improve its smartphone development. Lenovo Chairman and CEO Yuanqing Yang announced the job cuts today in an email to employees. The cuts are meant to help Lenovo reach its goal of 30 percent market share in the PC market. (Lenovo estimates that is has about 20.6 percent of the market now.)... Read more...
When acquiring a new notebook or desktop, one of the first things many power users do is wipe it clean. No one likes the "junk" that comes preinstalled, and if time is available, sometimes it's just preferable to start fresh. But what if that was easier said than done? What if that preinstalled junk became more like a plague, persisting even through a fresh install of Windows? You might think, "That's crazy. Impossible." Well, it is crazy, but it's definitely not impossible. It seems that installing some asinine malware on customer PCs wasn't enough to satisfy Lenovo's insatiable appetite for intrusion,...

Lenovo expanded its ThinkPad line this week with the ThinkPad P Series of mobile workstations. The new line will include Lenovo’s highest-performing ThinkPad mobile workstations, edging the ThinkPad W series out of that spot. We had good things to say about the ThinkPad W series in our recent review, so we’re looking forward to kicking the tires on the ThinkPad P line and seeing how it measures up. One new feature that’s bound to get some attention is the Intel Xeon E3-1500M v5 processor.“We’ve built features into these machines that were previously unachievable in a notebook, making them the most...

It almost seems impossible nowadays for a company to keep a product under wraps until it's officially meant to be unveiled, and one recent example is with Motorola's third-gen Moto G. While we learned last week about its expected specs, the company itself leaked even more information, all revolving around customization. As a recap, the third-gen Moto G will sport a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 610 SoC, and a sweet boost to 2GB of RAM. While 8GB will be the default storage option, users will be able to expand it up to 128GB with the use of a microSD card. On its own website, Motorola has revealed... Read more...
