Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 series, the company's flagship notebook lineup, is no stranger to our offices. The various iterations of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon are some of our favorite ultra-light notebooks. In recent years, Lenovo has pushed the X1 family into 2-in-1 convertible devices as well, and we've very much liked these types of systems in the past as well. Today, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 5 has returned to us, with a 360-degree hinge and a punchy 14-inch 4K display.  The updated ThinkPad X1 Yoga arrived with an Intel 10th-generation Core processor. However, Intel's product naming recently has been somewhat confusing, to say the least. 10th Gen Core i7 processors come in two flavors: the... Read more...
While we are still in the early stages, more and more PC manufacturers have jumped aboard the Windows on Arm train. First we had Microsoft's initial offering, the Surface Pro X. Then Samsung joined the fray with the traditional-looking Galaxy Book S, with battery life that lasted for days. Now Lenovo has crashed the party with the Flex 5G, a machine with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx 5G system on a chip (SoC) stuffed inside a versatile, a do-it-all convertible 2-in-1 design.  Reviewing an Arm-based Windows PC every few months gives us a glimpse into the evolution of the Arm ecosystem. At first, there weren't many production-ready apps—even Microsoft's Edge web browser was in its beta infancy... Read more...
Lenovo is bringing out some laptop power with the updated ThinkBook line of laptops. Packing new features, specs, and tricks, these laptops are poised to be solid productivity and creation devices. The first device we have on the docket is the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s Gen 2, a little laptop that can pack quite a punch. Lenovo’s little laptop that could is the “slimmest ThinkBook yet,” topping out at 14.9mm. While also thin, it is lightweight too, weighing in at 2.77lbs. Though it is small, do not confuse its size for power. This thing can be powered by the latest Intel 11th Gen Core i7 processors (Tiger Lake) with Intel Iris Xe graphics for handling any workload. The processor will... Read more...
Lenovo is looking to break barriers with two new ThinkPad entries that advance the mobile market in completely different ways. The first is the more traditional ThinkPad X1 Nano, which is the lightest ThinkPad that the company has ever created, while the second is the equally fascinating ThinkPad X1 Fold. We've talked about the ThinkPad X1 Fold on a several occasions previously, but the company now is ready to open the device up for preorders. ThinkPad X1 Nano If you thought that the ThinkPad X1 Carbon was light, you ain't seen nothing yet. Lenovo says that the ThinkPad X1 Nano weighs in at a remarkably low 1.99 pounds, while leveraging Intel's newest 11th generation Tiger Lake... Read more...
Lenovo devices are tussling with Windows 10 and it is leading to many “blue screen of death” issues for ThinkPad devices manufactured in 2019 and 2020. Microsoft and Lenovo are working to solve the issue, but in the meantime, both companies have put out a workaround. According to Microsoft, if a Lenovo ThinkPad device received the Windows Update for KB4568831 Preview (OS Build 19041.423), you may encounter a stop error or blue screen of death (BSOD). This is caused by processes accessing peripheral component interconnect device configurations incorrectly. If Enhanced Windows Biometric Security is enabled in the UEFI of Lenovo ThinkPad devices made in 2019 or 2020, this error occurs.... Read more...
It seems the year is starting to pick up steam and move quicker. We just received some hot news from Lenovo that they are planning out their holiday season roadmap with new devices, such as laptops and tablets. Let us dive into some of what’s in store. First up, Lenovo has some laptops planned for the holiday season. They are expanding their Yoga series of laptops with the Yoga 9i 2-in-1 and the Yoga Slim 9i. Let’s first look at the Yoga 9i 2-in-1. (Left- 14" Model Right- 15.6" Model) The Yoga 9i 2-in-1 comes in two size variants, a 14” and a 15.6” variant starting at $1499 and $1799, respectively. The 14” device doesn’t have all it’s specs fully confirmed... Read more...
15-inch gaming laptops are a dime a dozen these days, as they are available across a wide range of price points. Lenovo, however, is taking a slightly different approach with its latest release, which is called the Legion Slim 7i. Rather than placing all of its potent hardware components in a thick and heavy chassis, Lenovo is boasting that the Legion Slim 7i is the world’s lightest 15-inch gaming laptop. To that end, the Legion Slim 7i is only 0.7 inches thick, and weighs just 3.96 pounds. That’s quite respectable for a gaming laptop of that size, which is helped in part by its aluminum chassis that is finished in Slate Grey. At the heart of the Legion Slim 7i are Intel’s latest...

We've been looking forward to this day ever since we first got our hands on a trio of high-powered gaming notebooks powered by AMD's Ryzen 4000 processors. We already know the Renoir-based CPUs could deliver excellent performance at an attractive price in higher power envelopes where the Ryzen 7 4900HS and Ryzen 7 4800H reside. But how would AMD's lowest-power chips, like the Ryzen 5 4600U and Ryzen 7 4700U handle their constrained thermal budgets? And could AMD's typical budget-conscious pricing keep system costs low? Lenovo's ThinkPad X13 Gen 1 notebook will answer those questions for us today. To date, the thin and light segment has been dominated by Intel's offerings. AMD seems poised to... Read more...
Lenovo has announced it will be updating some of its Yoga notebooks this fall. Last year's Yoga C640 and Yoga C740 get new names to match Lenovo's latest product branding. The C640 becomes the Yoga 6 while the C740 becomes the Yoga 7i 14-inch and 15-inch. Along with the new name, the machines also get new hardware and features for 2020. Soon both Yoga 7i models will be updated with Intel's upcoming 11th generation Tiger Lake processors. Yoga 7i models also get a new flip to boot feature where opening the lid boots the system up. This feature will make it quicker and easier for computer users to get the laptop up and running for distance learning or remote working. Yoga 7i 15 Lenovo fits both... Read more...
Earlier this year, Motorola launched its first flagship in years: the Moto Edge+. The smartphone came packing worthy specs like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, 5G support, and a 90Hz display. The primary hang-up with that smartphone, however, was its $999 price tag. Motorola countered with the standard Moto Edge, which ditches the Snapdragon 865 in favor of the cheaper and slightly slower Snapdragon 765 (while retaining 5G support thanks to the Snapdragon X52 modem). The downgraded specs meant a price cut of $300, taking the Moto Edge to $699. Today, Motorola announced that the Moto Edge will be available even cheaper for a "limited time" for early birds. The smartphone is available... Read more...
Lenovo is a name associated with laptop and desktop computers, but it's expanding its offerings with a new Android-powered smartphone aimed squarely at mobile gamers. The phone is called the Legion Phone Duel and features six customized layout themes to choose from with distinctive design details, colors, and icons. One of those modes is the home mode that allows users to cast or play their games on a connected external TV or computer monitor using a wireless keyboard and mouse, or other wired accessories via a dock. The smartphone features a virtual joystick and dual ultrasonic trigger buttons embedded along with dual vibration engines to provide feedback for more immersion in the game. The... Read more...
In this episode of HotHardware's Two And A Geeks Podcast, Marco, Chris and Dave will be announcing our TCL 10 Pro Giveaway winners! We'll also be discussing AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper Pro beast chips, Lenovo's ThinkStation P620 workstation that's powered by those chips, our review of the cool new Death Stranding PC game, a big, fast new line of NVMe SSDs from Kingston and new giveaways going on now and to be announced!

Lenovo is no stranger to using AMD processors in its PCs; after all, the company just launched bodacious ThinkStation P620 workstations powered by AMD's new Ryzen Threadripper Pro processors. But Lenovo is also extending that partnership with AMD to a few new gaming laptops which have adapted AMD's latest 7nm Ryzen 4000 mobile APUs. Starting things off, we have the new IdeaPad Gaming 3, which is an entry-level laptop sporting a 15.6-inch Full HD display that can be had with an optional 120Hz refresh rate panel. Motivation for the laptop comes from up to a Ryzen 7 4800H processor, which can be paired with 32GB of DDR4-3200 memory and up to a 1TB SSD.  Lenovo IdeaPad... Read more...
Lenovo is one of the first hardware makers out of the gate to incorporate AMD's brand-spanking-new Threadripper Pro processors into a new desktop line. Unveiled today, the ThinkStation P620 lays claim to being the world's first professional workstation to be powered by a Threadripper Pro processor, with 64 cores and 128 threads of computing muscle at its disposal. According to Lenovo, not only is the ThinkStation P620 the first workstation to sport a Threadripper Pro chip, it's also the only one. At least for now, anyway—it would be odd if Lenovo scored a long term exclusive deal, but hey, anything is possible we suppose. "Users can achieve reduced render times, more creative iterations,...

There has been a flood of Tiger Lake leaks over the past several weeks (and months, really), and it does not look like they are slowing down. Case in point, a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop sporting an Intel 11th generation Core i7-1165G7 processor with Xe graphics in tow has made another cameo in the Geekbench database. The Core i7-1165G7 is an unreleased Tiger Lake-U processor for ultrathin and light laptops. It is built on Intel's enhanced 10-nanometer manufacturing process (10nm+) and features four Willow Cove processor cores with HyperThreading support (so eight threads). While specifications may change when the chip actually releases, leaks indicate it runs at a 2.8GHz base clock and a 4.7GHz boost... Read more...
Motorola makes smartphones that run the gamut from cheap entry-level devices, into the mid-range, all the way up into the high-end market with the newly launched Edge+. Now, renders of the company's latest budget smartphone have leaked: the Moto G 5G. As it name implies, the smartphone will pack 5G connectivity, likely from a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. The leaked renders come from Evan Blass, a leaker with an impeccably accurate history when it comes to unreleased smartphones. The renders show the front and back as well as one side of the smartphone, and it looks very good. Notable on the front of the smartphone is that it has a dual hole punch array that is presumably for the selfie camera and... Read more...
For the most part, desktop PCs have been trending towards smaller designs, culminating in things like Intel's diminutive Next Unit of Computing (NUC) and its even tinier Compute Stick. While not quite as compact, Lenovo's new 'ThinkCentre M75n IoT Nano Desktop' is yet another example of a space saving design with modern hardware inside. This one is not powered by Intel, however, and instead rocks an AMD Athlon Silver 3050e processors. This is a "Dali" processor that is built on a 14-nanometer manufacturing process and based on AMD's original Zen CPU architecture. It sports 2 cores and 4 threads, with a 1.4GHz base clock and 2.8GHz max boost clock, along with 4MB of L3 cache. It also features... Read more...
Lenovo has unveiled a new range of multiple workstations that includes the new ThinkPad P series. The range includes the ThinkPad P15, ThinkPad P17, ThinkPad P1 Gen 3, and the ThinkPad P15v. All machines are equipped with Intel's new 10th generation Comet Lake-H series mobile processors. The entire ThinkPad P series also features a new Lenovo Ultra Performance Mode that is exclusive to these systems. Lenovo's Ultra Performance Mode allows users to take control of their performance settings -- enabled by default in BIOS -- which relaxes restrictions on acoustics and temperature, allowing the user access to the full potential of the GPU and CPU. These notebooks have an improved thermal design able... Read more...
Back in December, we took a deep dive with Lenovo's second-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme. We came away impressed with the machine which was packing a 9th generation Coffee Lake-H processor, GeForce GTX 1650 graphics and a 15.6-inch 4K display.  Lenovo is a company that is always iterating, and now the company is launching the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3, and it's embracing Intel's latest 10th generation Comet Lake-H processors, up to a Core i9 with vPro. Like its predecessor, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 sports a 15.6-inch display, which is available in Full HD or 4K resolutions. For those that have the money to splurge, the high-end option is a 4K OLED touch panel that is... Read more...
Lenovo has big aspirations of competing in the premium smartphone space with its recently introduced Moto Edge+, a high-end handset from top to bottom with a price to match ($1,000). But is ready for prime time? We did not experience any major issues with the Moto Edge+ during our hands-on time with the phone, but it appears there is a display issue affecting some customers. It is not clear how widespread the problem might be—it could be limited to a specific batch of shipments or a wider issue with production and sourcing—but those affected are complaining of various display abnormalities, such as purple spots. Oddly enough, the spots appear after having the phone turned on for a... Read more...
Lenovo has announced that you will soon be able to purchase its Flex 5G convertible, which was first announced back at CES 2020 (as the Yoga 5G). The Flex 5G isn’t just your run of the mill Windows 10 device, however; this one is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx 5G SoC. There aren’t many devices on the market that use the Arm-based Snapdragon 8cx 5G  – the Samsung Galaxy Book S remains perhaps the most well-known of the offerings – but the chip offers respectable performance as long as you don’t require extreme heavy lifting. In other words, don’t think that you’re going to be doing 4K video editing with this machine. In... Read more...
