We covered a lot of miles at CES 2016 this year, our fitness trackers often chirping "success" rather early in the day, but we saw a lot of people and a lot of tech gear in our travels. Some of it was hot - damn hot - some of it, not so much. There were some recurring themes this year, as with every year at CES it seems. The hot topics and trends this year were autonomous cars, virtual reality, more thin and light computing and of course more powerful gaming gear. Every Tech Web publication has its own short list of the best products showcased at CES 2016. We're going to run down our top 10 products... Read more...
There was a time when the Motorola brand was a big deal in the mobile phone space. Remember all those Razr flip phones that were all the rage? That was Motorola's heyday, and it's now a distant memory, have given way to the likes of Apple, Samsung, and HTC. And starting soon, the Motorola brand will no longer be found on new mobile phone devices.Lenovo, the world's top supplier of PCs, purchased Motorola Mobility from Google two years ago for $2.91 billion. It was a far better deal than the one Google inked for the brand in 2012, which cost the search giant $12.5 billion, a move that was largely... Read more...
After making waves at IDF 2015 in August, Project Tango is closer to appearing on consumer phones. In fact, Google and Lenovo announced at CES 2016 that they already have a prototype phone that features the augmented reality kit and plan to launch it this year. Google released renderings of a Lenovo phone with Project Tango, but cautioned that the images are not images of the “official” Lenovo phone. Still, they provide an interesting look at how the necessary hardware (a motion-tracking camera and depth-sensing technology) will affect the appearance of a consumer phone. “By adding...

As we covered earlier today, Lenovo has completely revamped their ThinkPad product lines for business and professional types, with not only the latest in platform technologies from Intel and others, like Skylake mobile CPUs and PCIe SSDs, but also some solid design updates and key feature additions. More and more, ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo are taking on design cues and features that were brought to market with the advent of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The new 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon is now both thinner and lighter at just 2.6 pounds, with Intel Skylake on board and an NVMe PCI Express... Read more...
Although the Consumer Electronics Show hasn’t officially started just yet, many exhibitors are already setup and demoing their latest wares at various locations away from the convention center. Our first stop today was at Lenovo’s suite, where the company was showing off a wide array of products, from mainstream, thin and light notebooks to powerful, multi-GPU powered gaming systems. We’ve got a few of Lenovo’s product announcements already posted if you’d like some additional reading and will have a companion hands on video going up shortly featuring Lenovo’s... Read more...
Lenovo is the biggest PC OEM in the world, and we were reminded of that fact yesterday when the company released a whole gaggle of Think-branded notebooks, convertibles, tablets, and all-in-one devices. But the Chinese company isn’t finished; tonight it’s time for Round 2, which means we’re seeing a heavy dose of consumer-centric product announcements. First up is the new Yoga 900S, which is the world’s thinnest ultraportable convertible, measuring in at just 12.8mm thick and weighing in at 2.2 pounds. Lenovo is able to achieve this thinness (while maintaining chassis durability... Read more...
Lenovo is reTHINKing its product lineup for 2016 and from the looks of things, elite business users are going to be in for a real treat with a whole family of devices ranging from tablets to ultra-portables to thin desktop clients. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has always been one of our favorite ultraportable laptops, and today it just got a little bit more desirable. Lenovo bills the ThinkPad X1 Carbon as the “world’s lightest 14-inch business ultrabook,” and we’re not going to argue with its avowal. The ultrabook is now both thinner and lighter, coming at just 0.65mm thick and... Read more...
There's a reason the Lenovo Stack has a ThinkPad logo emblazoned on each component. Over the years, the name ThinkPad has become synonymous with mobile professionals. For the most part, ThinkPad has been reserved for tablets and laptops, but with the Lenovo Stack the company is introducing the brand to an entirely new category: accessories. First unveiled at CES 2015, Stack is as much a new concept as it is a product line. In a nutshell, this is Lenovo's take on a line of peripherals that all work with one another - or stack together - via a custom connector. It's applying the modular computing... Read more...
We’ve all enjoyed Lenovo’s Yoga series of consumer laptops for years, but it looks like the Chinese OEM is looking to extend that flexibility to its storied ThinkPad product line. That brings us to the introduction of the ThinkPad P40 Yoga, which Lenovo bills as the “first-ever multimode mobile workstation.” The ThinkPad P40 Yoga is meant to be a versatile mobile workstation for business professionals, offering sixth generation Intel Core i7 Skylake processors, a maximum of 16GB of DDR3L memory (via a solitary SODIMM slot) and support for up to a 512GB SATA SSD. When it comes to displays, Lenovo... Read more...
Although Lenovo already has a lineup of high-powered gaming desktop and notebook computers, it’s not exactly the first brand that we think of when it comes to satisfying our PC gaming fix. Lenovo, however, is looking to change that with a new partnership with well-known gaming enthusiast company Razer. The somewhat odd pairing will see both Lenovo and Razer co-brand and co-market Lenovo’s Y Series gaming rigs as Lenovo Razer Edition products. The first product birthed from this fresh marriage is the Lenovo Razer Edition Gaming Desktop, and from a performance standpoint, there doesn’t appear to... Read more...
What a difference a year can make. Now that Intel's Skylake processors are widely available, desktop, tablets, and hybrid convertibles are all being refreshed with the latest hardware. Lenovo, for example, recently introduced its Yoga 900. Though the nomenclature has changed a bit, this machine  is effectively a revised Yoga 3 Pro. The unique watchband hinge should all but give it away; it's the token feature on a potent, high-powered machine that acts first and foremost as a laptop, and secondarily as a slate. That's something we've also seen recently from Microsoft with its Surface Book and... Read more...
It may be a bit too early to be shopping for the holidays just yet, but doing a little research never hurts, particularly if you’re in the market for a new mobile device. Tablet makers are continually in the process of slimming down their devices and boosting battery life, even in the entry-level space, where products like the Android-based Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 play. Lenovo gave this tablet an aggressive price point of $169.99 and designed it for entertainment use, which ought to make the Yoga Tab 3 8 appealing to a broad range of potential consumers. So, we decided to take the tablet for a spin... Read more...
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...
