01/09/2012, [CES 2012] At the Consumer Electronics Show today, Lenovo launched the IdeaPad Yoga YOGA – a device touted to be the industry’s first multi-mode notebook with a 360 flip-and-fold design (hence the name “yoga”). The IdeaPad YOGA essentially combines a portable 13.3″ multi-touch tablet with a powerful ultrabook, joined by a patented dual-hinge that lets consumers use the device in a variety of ways. Use it like a regular notebook, […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] It looks like Lenovo has just made history by releasing the first Android 4.0 Smart TV. Interestingly, note that the Lenovo K9 is runs Android 4.0, not Google TV, so Lenovo has taken the approach of leveraging the Google Android 4.0 code and wrapped a new “smart UI” around it (as Lenovo calls it). Lenovo aims at delivering video-on-demand, web apps, and of course TV programs. That last […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] Want a functional desktop PC without breaking the bank? I am quite sure Lenovo has got your back with the new Lenovo H520s desktop. Coming in a slim design that will certainly make those of us living in cramped apartments carve a smile, it is said to be twice smaller than your standard desktop machine, and will feature Lenovo Assistant software that is an easy-to-use user interface for […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] If you are a gamer, then you fall under one of the two classes – you prefer to build your own gaming machine from scratch, or you would like to purchase a powerful, off-the-shelf model and start tweaking it from there. If you happen to fall under the latter category, then you might be interested in the IdeaCentre K430 which can stash away up to an Intel Core […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] Lenovo graces CES 2012 with a couple of notebooks from the IdeaPad range, where it intends to deliver high-performance processing power and graphical technology coupled with advanced multimedia features in order for it to boot up in a jiffy. The brushed metal cover and palm rest would certainly be pleasing to the eye, but I still don’t understand why notebook manufacturers cannot get the humble trackpad right, unlike […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] Lenovo has just introduced the Lenovo IdeaTab S2, a 1.27lbs, 8.69mm tablet with a 10″ display that runs on Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich. Lenovo is so happy with Android 4.0 that they describe the IdeaTab S2 as delivering a “flawless” end-user experience. As you can see on the photo, Lenovo also came up with a keyboard/dock which looks very cool (I can’t wait to type with […]

The Set top box will feature a 1.2GHz VIA Nano processor and VIA VX900 media system processor which provides full compatibility with mainstream video and audio formats.

01/04/2012, The Lenovo X1 Hybrid is an update from the previous Lenovo X1 that we had reviewed in details previously. This new X1 has a new Gorilla-glass 13.3 “superbright infinity” display, a rapid battery charge that props the battery up to 80% in 30minutes, an “instant-on” Hybrid mode in which the battery life is twice as much, and the spill-resistant backlit keyboard is still around.
01/04/2012, Lenovo is launching a slew of new ThinkPad E-Series today which includes the ThinkPad Edge E530/E535 and E430/435. They are all mainstream laptops that can be configured to hit any price point from entry-level ($500+) to close to $1000. The E500 Series is a 15” line of laptops, while the E400 Series is (you have guessed:) the 14” line. Both come with similar options that includes a range of Intel […]
01/04/2012, Lenovo introduces a new thin & light model with the ThinkPad Edge S430. The laptop is 0.86” thick and is designed to look business-like (believe it or not, but it does matter in some circles…). The exterior is painted with a soft-touch paint that is well-known for its use on smartphones. This gives the computer a “leathery” feel and should provide additional grip to avoid a slippage that would end […]
01/03/2012, Windows 8 doesn’t have an official release date, but it looks like we’ll be seeing it in the second half of this year – according to the folks over at DigiTimes. They’ve reported that Acer and Lenovo are reportedly working on Windows 8 tablets that will be released in Q3 2012. The tablets will be running on Intel’s upcoming Clover Trail processor as opposed to the new Medfield processors that […]
12/30/2011, With the increasing amount of ultrabooks and tablets on the market, people wonder if there really is a need for netbooks anymore. Lenovo seems to think so; the company recently added a new netbook to its IdeaPad range: the S110. The company released a teaser video showing off the entry level, portable notebook that should be making its debut at CES 2012.
12/28/2011, A while back we reported that there was a possibility that Lenovo could be launching a smart TV of their own called the “LeTV”, and sure enough Lenovo has confirmed the device, although the name might change to the “IdeaTV” moniker for its launch outside of China. Still not much details have been revealed, but it’s still pretty consistent with what we reported earlier about how the company will be […]
12/20/2011, Are you one of those who have been looking forward to a spanking new Lenovo ThinkPad X130e? Well, sorry to be a wet blanket by bringing this bit of news, but its seems that the Lenovo ThinkPad X130e will not be making it to your home before the year is over, missing out on the original December 20th shipping date, but rather, you can only start to place orders for […]
