For the last 20 years, NVIDIA has developed and used its own graphics IP in-house. While the company engaged in several prominent cross-licensing deals with companies like Intel, those deals never resulted in an Intel-branded graphics card or an equivalent product from another company. Today, that changes -- NVIDIA... Read more...
It's official, Lenovo now has an operational PC manufacturing plant in the U.S. Sure, the majority of its operations are still taking place overseas, but that's of little consequence to the people employed at the new facility in Whitsett, North Carolina. The grand opening was also a big deal for the locals, with North... Read more...
It’s a veritable form factor jamboroo in the PC and mobile markets these days. Companies like Samsung are trying to find the sweet spot(s) with a host of different smartphones, phablets, and tablets, and companies such as Lenovo are completely rethinking the notebook with convertible designs. Dell is now getting... Read more...
Don't tell Lenovo the PC market is in a slump. The OEM apparently hasn't gotten the memo, and as they say, ignorance is bliss. In this case, it's also quite lucrative. Lenovo this week announced record full-year sales of $34 billion, up 15 percent year-over-year, and record earnings of $635 million, up more than a... Read more...

You have to wonder: how many companies have to do the same thing before it officially becomes a trend?

Of course, Lenovo makes... Read more...
Lenovo has a really good thing going with its computer business as it wrestles with Hewlett-Packard for the shipment crown, and though the company continues to experience better growth in the PC market than its rivals, it also recognizes there's a mobile movement taking place.

Lenovo pretty much nailed the thin and light Ultrabook form factor with its ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which we gave an Editor's Choice award last summer, but what about the enterprise crowd? For business users, Lenovo just launched its ThinkPat T431s Ultrabook with design enhancements the company claims were "inspired by... Read more...
It's one of those rumors that just won't vanish. Ever since RIM (now known as BlackBerry) announced that BB10 wouldn't be ready until the start of 2013, shares of the Canadian company began to nosedive. And with that came the inevitable talk of a takeover. Similar to how Microsoft stepped in to side with Nokia, many... Read more...
If you've paid any attention to the PC industry in the past few years, you're aware that things aren't as rosy as they used to be.

No self respecting power user is giving up his or her desktop for a tablet, plain and simple. At the same time, can you say the same thing about your less savvy friends and family members?

The way Gartner sees it, we're all going to be living in single-PC homes in the not-too-distant future. Mom, pop, little Billy and his sister Janet won't have their own PCs anymore, and will instead share a single primary PC in the household for heavy lifting, and use a tablet for content consumption chores, like surfing the web and playing...

While the mainstream seems to be signaling that the iPad is the clear favorite in the tablet race, Android is making a slow and deliberate push into that market share. With the introduction of the low-cost, high-powered, well-built Nexus 7, Android tabs have become more than an obsession for the technically savvy. Now, players like Lenovo... Read more...
It's getting really difficult not to flat-out fall in love Lenovo.

The company simply continues to put out solid products (ThinkPad X1... Read more...
