It has TriDef 3D technology with 3D glasses and Dolby Home Theater surround sound. A Core [...]

    Ready for your daily dose of viral marketing? This Lenovo video is just that, but it's also an interesting look at the development of Lenovo's upcoming ThinkCentre M90z all-in-one workstation.

    Hands-on with Lenovo’s cavalcade of laptops and PCs

    Lenovo’s new line-up is heavy on the all-in-ones but has a few surprises up its sleeve. I got a chance to look at most of the new line last week and came away extremely enthused by the twee Q150. From the press release: If your idea of fun is tricking out your living room entertainment center, [...]

    The Lenovo Q nettop series gets a makeover, should look at home under your HDTV

    Lenovo's previous nettop entry was just your standard Mac Mini-clone, encased in a drab black box. But the just-announced Q150 shouldn't have any issues standing out from the crowd. Forget about the sleek exterior, it's the included bitch'n Lenovo wireless keyboard/mouse that will please the masses [of nerds].

  • Lenovo LePhone unboxed, exhaustively reviewed ahead of launch in China

    Lenovo LePhone unboxed, exhaustively reviewed ahead of launch in China

    We're not sure how we missed this one, but it's better late than never -- turns out some lucky jerks in China were given a Lenovo LePhone to play with back in mid-April, and the guys at Sooyuu have just finished the fifth and final part of their lengthy review, just in time for the May launch. We weren't expecting any changes since our last encounter at CES, but apparently the 3.7-inch screen's now been upgraded from LCD to AMOLED, and like the Palm Pre, the LePhone also sports a gesture area below the screen. Of course, there's also the never-before-seen packaging that we totally dig, not to mention the bundled goodies such as a leather case, a noise-isolation handsfree kit (but sans music and volume control), plus a magnetic dock adapter. As for software, the reviewer praises Lenovo's snappy, heavily customized Android with its vast Chinese social networking service integration, music store, video apps, and an impressive Chinese turn-by-turn navigation suite. We almost want to adopt this baby, only to be let down by its 3.2-megapixel camera's mediocre quality, lack of flash, and inability to autofocus. Anyhow, you can be the final judge -- head over to Sooyuu for plenty more pictures.

  • The Lenovo C200 offers NVIDIA Ion 2, dual-core Atom for $499

    The Lenovo C200 offers NVIDIA Ion 2, dual-core Atom for $499

    Lenovo's latest flatscreen all-in-one just broke cover and it's an Intel Nvidia mash-up made in heaven. Behind the 16:9 18.5-inch 1366x768 screen hides a dual-core Intel Atom D510 CPU, which isn't too bad on its own, but the optional touchscreen and GeForce G210 GPU makes it into a solid multipurpose desktop. Of course you're not going to be running Crysis 2 on it, but it should handle full-screen Farmville without sweating.

  • Lenovo adds Sprint 3G and 4G to the ThinkPad lineup

    Lenovo adds Sprint 3G and 4G to the ThinkPad lineup

    Lenovo ThinkPads have offered 3G access for a while now but soon Sprint 3G and 4G WiMAX will be available as well. All buyers will need to do is select the Sprint access during the ordering process and their fancy new notebook will arrive with a Sprint SIM card already installed. It's then just a matter of firing up the Lenovo Access Connection tool to start the service. Of course Sprint will want a monthly service charge as well, but hopefully you can con your company into picking up the tab under the guise of "mobile productivity".Middle mangers love that type of talk.

  • Lenovo: 80% of the technology will run on the mobile web by 2015

    Lenovo: 80% of the technology will run on the mobile web by 2015

    Lenovo company chief Yang Yuanqing said that soon the majority of Lenovo products would run on the mobile web, meaning a cross of 3G and 4G technologies. Most of their current line comes with 3G built in and their ThinkPad line is just screaming out for mobile web simply because it is aimed at the on-the-go professional. What think I on this topic? I think Lenovo is unqiuely placed to take advantage of the mobile web, along with Dell and HP. All three are seen as "business" notebook manufacturers, for better or worse, and that's a low margin business. By adding 3G capabilities out of the box they presumably get a cut from the carriers as they sell more units.

    Consumer Reports says Apple has the best tech support, Acer/Gateway/eMachines the worst

    Consumer Reports has a new report on which computer company has the best tech support. Apple wins! That's what happens when the same company controls the hardware as well as the operating system (and several of the most prominent pieces of software). The highest ranking PC manufacturer is Dell for desktops and Lenovo for laptops.

    Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard now available from Brando for $64

    This may very well be the first time I’ve ever seen Brando sell a product from a big name manufacturer. Normally known for whimsical crap gadgets from faraway lands (and I mean that in the best way possible), the web store is now selling the HTPC-friendly Lenovo Mini Wireless Keyboard for $64.

    Video: Quick hands-on with the Lenovo Skylight

    Lenovo’s Snapdragon-based Skylight smartbook is here at CES (see previous coverage). It’s light – really light. I didn’t have too much time to actually test out anything substantial but the physical design is certainly different enough to draw some attention. I couldn’t get a more firm release date than “sometime in April” and AT&T hasn’t [...]
