Lenovo has trotted out a pair of new mobile workstations including the ThinkPad P1 and the ThinkPad P72 that are thinner and more portable than you might expect. Of these two workstations, the thinnest of them is the P1 and this workstation class machine is only 0.7-inches thick. The beefier ThinkPad P72 is still only an inch thick. Lenovo manages to cram serious workstation hardware inside the rigs and keep it cool with choices of 8th gen Intel Core processors and Xeon hardware inside the rigs. Workstations need lots of graphics muscle for some types of workloads and Lenovo accommodates this type... Read more...
The original Motorola Z Play made a name for itself among users who champion smartphone battery life above all other features. It was not uncommon to hear of Moto Z Play users getting multiple days of power out of a single charge. In our review, Its battery life trounced every other phone we have ever tested by a wide margin. So, when the Moto Z2 Play was introduced last year, many lamented Motorola’s decision to slim the phone down and ultimately reduce battery capacity. While battery life was still exceptional, it fell far from eclipsing its processor. It is no surprise then that demands... Read more...

It has a 6-inch Full HD+ OLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that takes up most of the front of the device.

The Lenovo Smart display is the first in an assault of Google Assistant-enabled devices set to hit the market this year. They will take on Amazon's Echo Show in a battle for smart home assistant technology, with not only a set of ears, but also a set of eyes and a display face to complete the experience.

Way back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo announced its Smart Display family.

Lenovo and Google announced today that the Smart Display will be available in U.S. retail locations and online stores starting this weekend. The Lenovo Smart Display is available in two screen sizes: 8-inches or 10-inches with HD resolutions.

Has Lenovo been trolling us all for the past month? Over the past few weeks Lenovo has peppered the internet with sketches and renders of the Lenovo Z5 that showed a "true" bezel-less design. In fact, Lenovo VP Chang Cheng promised a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio, which would far surpass anything else on the market. The actual end result is a bit more disappointing. Not only is the screen-to-body ratio lower at 90 percent, but the smartphone has both a display notch at the top and a chin at the bottom. Is Lenovo now dabbling in alternative facts? What we thought was going to be... Read more...
Lenovo sure did talk a big game when with regards to its upcoming Z5 flagship smartphone. The company billed the smartphone as being a true bezel-less design, and the concept sketch for the smartphone confirmed those statements. Previously released renders of the smartphone that have also highlighted ultra-tiny bezels. However, we're now learning why Lenovo has been strategic in the renders/photos that it has shown of the smartphone.

However, we're learning this week that the bezel-less smartphone will make its official debut on June 5th.

The ThinkPad line of notebooks has a long, storied history, from its beginnings as an IBM product, to Lenovo's continued refinements and improvements, generation over generation. ThinkPads are well known, often sought after products, especially by business-class road warriors, due to their no-nonsense design language, excellent keyboards, and reputation for reliability.  In addition, ThinkPads have had one other thing remain consistent over the years -- a glorious little red nub, called a TrackPoint or pointing stick, that remains faithfully nestled between the G and H keys. For some it's... Read more...

Lenovo recently unveiled several new budget IdeaPad laptops with prices starting at just $249, but apparently one of the new models is serving as a launchpad of sorts for Intel's 10-nanometer Cannon Lake processors. The 10nm part was spotted in a listing in China for Lenovo's IdeaPad 330-15, a 15.6-inch laptop with a 1366x768 resolution priced at 3,299 yuan, which works out to around $520 in US currency. It feels like we have been waiting ages for Cannon Lake to arrive, though that is exaggerating things a bit. Still, it has not been easy for Intel to streamline its 10nm production process, as...

A sketch of an alleged Lenovo smartphone called the Z5 has turned up and this sketch shows an Android device that has a screen that covers nearly the entire front and has no notch. The sketch was shared by Lenovo VP Chang Chen via Weibo. A message was offered along with the image that claims this will be Lenovo's newest flagship smartphone. Since this is just a sketch, it would seem to be a concept at this point or at least a very early design, but there is no indication of how far along the Z5 is in development. The trick for designing phones like the Z5 without having to resort to a... Read more...
