Oh my, Lenovo -- what has gotten into you? In case a new netbook -- the planet's first with Nvidia's Ion technology, at that -- wasn't enough, the company is also introducing three more new machines today. One all-in-one PC is being launched alongside two new notebooks, both of which promise adequate power and great design for a rather affordable price.First off, we've got the 20" desktop shown above, the IdeaCentre C300. For the longest while, those looking for an inexpensive PC were forced to buy the ugliest box known to man and put up with abysmal performance. This machine aims to change all that, arriving with a widescreen LCD, a built-in DVD burner/player, Intel's Atom 230 CPU, integrated... Read more...
It's shaping up to be quite the month for Lenovo. Just weeks after it unveiled a refreshed version of its IdeaPad S10 netbook (understandably deemed the S10-2), the company is dropping yet another new rig on the world. Today, the IdeaPad S12 came to light, bringing with it the title of world's first netbook with NVIDIA's Ion technology. How significant will this be in the netbook world? If we had to guess today, we'd say "very." If you'll recall, NVIDIA's Ion is a new chipset that aims to provide 1080p capabilities to otherwise underpowered and low-cost machines. It's the same technology that launched in Acer's Aspire Revo nettop, and the same technology that recently shipped in a Zotac mainboard.... Read more...
It's not often that you see a manufacturer release a self-proclaimed "incremental update" to an existing product (firmware refreshes notwithstanding), so Lenovo's new IdeaPad S10-2 is certainly noteworthy. The original IdeaPad S10 first surfaced last autumn, and rather than delivering a true successor, Lenovo has opted to dole out a Revision B (if you will) that is more evolutionary than revolutionary. Indeed, the entire machine is simply tweaked rather than overhauled, but there's no need to reinvent the wheel when the current one rolls fine, right?Among the most notable changes on the S10-2 are a new cover design (white, black, pink or grey), a slightly slimmer (4mm) and lighter (0.2kg) chassis...

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Lenovo's IdeaPad Y530, which we found to be solid, though not without its annoyances. For those looking for something just a pinch different (and by "different," we mean "bigger and more powerful"), there's the IdeaPad Y650, which has long been announced but just recently available for ordering. At Lenovo's website, the 16-inch behemoth is available in three standard configurations, though each of them can be somewhat customized to your liking. The lower-end IdeaPad Y650 - 418536U starts at $1299 and includes a 2.40GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 processor, Windows Vista Home Premium, Intel's integrated X4500 graphics, 3GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM, a...

Lenovo's IdeaPad series of notebooks is quite different than the company's popular line up of ThinkPads. Ideapads are currently available in three series of products. The "U" series designates an ultraportable style with 11.1" or 13.3" widescreen displays and Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The "Y" series is for family entertainment and is available with up to a 17" screen and Intel 2.8GHz Core 2 duo processors. And finally, there is the super mobile "S" series netbook with its Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor and 10.2" display. Within the "U" and "Y" series there are a lot of models to choose from. In this article, we'll be showcasing the Ideapad Y530 specifically, which offers a competitive array of... Read more...

Lenovo's IdeaPad S10 is a 10" Netbook that sports low power consumption, ultra-portability, respectable performance and a well rounded feature set. It's built on Intel's new low-power Atom processor. Taking on such challengers as Asus' Eee PC and the MSI Wind, Lenovo offers this svelte machine for a modest $399 entry price point. While the S10's keyboard is a little cramped for a 10" netbook, we liked the machine's, build quality, fit and finish, and super-crisp LCD. Click the link below and check it out...

While some people are extremely impressed with smaller ultra-portables like the Eee PC, others want something with a little more performance and/or features.  Looking to meet this growing group of consumers is Lenovo with their new 11.1” IdeaPad U110 that we showed you a preview of here in our CES 2008 report. “The IdeaPad U110 features a smallish 11.1" LED-backlit WXGA display coupled with Intel's X3100 integrated graphics adapter.

Ever since Lenovo took over IBM's mobile division, the company has produced a steady stream of ThinkPad-branded notebooks, that fit essentially the same mold.  ThinkPads have been highly regarded almost as the defacto notebook of choice for corporate or professional types, but they didn't always appeal to mass market, mainstream consumers or enthusiasts.  At this year's CES however, Lenovo showed off a trio of notebooks designed to do just that.Lenovo's IdeaPad line of mobile computers is comprised of products ranging from a sleek, ultra light 11.1" designer notebook, to a beefy 17" DTR model with options that cater strictly to hardcore gamers.  This new line of...
