Anyone that has worked with laptops for a while might recall the ThinkPad brand from back in the day before Lenovo purchased the client PC division from IBM. One of the most notable things about the old-school ThinkPads was the keyboard, complete with a blue enter key and a red trackpoint nub smack dab in the center. After Lenovo took over the ThinkPad line, some of the beloved industrial styling cues from those workhorse machines left along with the IBM logo. However, Lenovo is now celebrating the 25th anniversary of the ThinkPad brand with a unique ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition notebook... Read more...
One could argue that the two primary features of a modern laptop, that can most prominently define the user experience, would be its display and keyboard. After all, these two aspects make up the majority of a notebook PC's human-computer interface. If that's the case, then Lenovo's latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 2) with OLED display has a rather unfair advantage. As we've noted in the past, Lenovo has some of the best laptop keyboards in the business, at least in terms of usability and feel. And when you couple a 14-inch OLED (Organic LED) display with one of the best laptop keyboard designs on... Read more...
If ever there was a brand of laptops that folks might refer to as “iconic,” it would be Lenovo’s ThinkPad line of business-class machines. The ThinkPad line was also a very successful go-to notebook brand for many mainstream consumers over the years as well. Known for their minimalist, straight-forward but highly functional design characteristics, the first ThinkPad was initially introduced by IBM in 1992. Lenovo then moved in to acquire IBM’s PC business in 2005. And so, if you’re already doing the math, today actually marks the 25th anniversary of the venerable, and yes iconic, ThinkPad laptop...

For fans of Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad business notebooks, the cat is out the bag with regards to its upcoming model to commemorate the brand's 25th anniversary. A German blog managed to capture images of the ThinkPad 25 in all its stealthy, charcoal-colored glory. The 3.48-pound ThinkPad 25 is reportedly based on Lenovo's existing ThinkPad T470, which means that it comes packing a 14-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080.  The machine is said to include an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 940MX (although we would have liked...

We've reported on a few occasions that Lenovo is working on a retro throwback laptop that channels some of the looks and cool features that ThinkPad fans of yore will remember fondly. Fast forward a couple months and an actual picture (not a render) has turned up out of China claiming to show the notebook in the flesh. The image certainly doesn't give up much in the way of detail, showing only the corner and logo, but it is claimed to be the retro anniversary ThinkPad. While the image has turned up in China, word is that the "ThinkPad 25" has also been found at a German certification site.... Read more...

IBM’s ThinkPad notebooks first went on sale in 1992, and quickly became a staple for business travelers and well-heeled consumers that wanted a high-end, high quality mobile device. There were some hits and misses along the way — and some quirky side treks, like the ThinkPad 701c — but the line has survived for nearly 25 years. Not even Lenovo’s acquisition of IBM’s PC business in 2005 was enough to slow down the ThinkPad. Now that the ThinkPad’s 25th birthday is fast approaching, the folks at Lenovo are giving us a status update of sorts on its retro ThinkPad that is currently in development.... Read more...
Lenovo has carved out quite a business for itself in the laptop space over the years, led more recently by premium machines like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. However, there are obviously many more models in the ThinkPad family of products, beyond just the top-shelf X1 Carbon line. In the more affordable ThinkPad T470s (starting price of $959), you will find a thin, light ultrabook with many of the features Lenovo is known for, including the usual fantastic keyboard setup and solid performance. At just 2.9 pounds, you’d be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t pack much punch, but this Kaby Lake... Read more...
Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad business oriented laptop line is punctuated by a couple of stand-out models, but perhaps none as striking, at least for a ThinkPad, as the ThinkPad X1 series. In its current lineup, Lenovo offers two models specifically that command attention perhaps more than others, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga that we recently revisited--with its 360-degree hinge and sweet OLED display--and the new 5th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon that we'll be looking at here today. Though the 5th gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon may share a similar design signature and materials as the previous generation, Lenovo's... Read more...
We have already shown you a number of Lenovo’s latest products, which were announced over the last few days, during the lead-up to the Consumer Electronics Show -- you can find all of our CES 2017 coverage right here.  We have since, however, had a chance to get up close and personal with the machines and have some hands-on video to share with you all. While touring Lenovo’s suites adjacent to the convention center, we were able to get our hands on the new Legion Y-Series gaming notebooks, an upcoming wireless multimedia keyboard, all of the new ThinkPads slated for 2017 – including the...

CES hasn’t even arrived yet, but Lenovo has already unleashed a truckload of new computing products to satisfy business users (and regular consumers that prefer higher-end machines). The company has announced a total of eight new ThinkPad models and two new ThinkVision displays along with two ThinkPad Docks.ThinkPad Yoga 370 So, let’s get right to it, shall we? First up is the $1,149 ThinkPad Yoga 370, which is a new 2-in-1 convertible with a familiar 360-degree hinge and the Lift ‘n’ Lock keyboard, which protects the keys when used in tablet mode. At the center of the Yoga 370 is a 13.3-inch 1920x1080... Read more...
Lenovo has done a remarkable job of classing up its business notebooks without sacrificing the features and build-quality that make the ThinkPad line so popular with road warriors. It recently updated its ThinkPad X1 Yoga with an excellent 2560x1440 OLED panel, for example, making it even more attractive to executives. But the company hasn’t forgotten users who dig more utilitarian builds, and don't need the latest bells and whistles. The ThinkPad X260 is all about functionality, portability, and quality. It is a no-nonsense road warrior. At about $765, the ThinkPad X260 has the lowest starting... Read more...
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga. The X1 Carbon line was introduced in 2012, bringing a largely carbon-fiber filled construction to decrease weight and increase durability compared to their previous X1 ultrabooks, while still maintaining the classic ThinkPad design established way back by IBM. The ThinkPad Yoga line, introduced a year later in 2013, consists of smaller 11 and 13 inch 2-in-1 form factors with a reinforced hinge capable of folding beyond 180 degrees into tent, stand or even tablet modes....

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...
