I was walking through the office with Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon dangling between two fingers when my colleague spied the logo. “That was my first computer,” she said with immeasurable fondness. The ThinkPad was a lot of people’s first computer. Early ThinkPads were built like a tank and ran smooth like a spinning…
Full-fat Windows tablets are taking their sweet time catching on with the general public, but if you’re not pulling the trigger because they aren’t quite versatile enough, Lenovo’s master-of-all-trades Thinkpad X1 could be the ticket.
What goes around comes around, especially when it comes to design aesthetics. Now Lenovo design VP David Hill gas dreamed up a new concept: an old-school ThinkPad stuffed with ultra-modern guts. Would you buy one?
I've got bluetooth speakers and battery packs and wires all over my desk. I'm a slob and it's a problem. A problem that Lenovo's new Think Stack accessories look like maybe they could solve. They're like little magnetic Legos that snap all your clutter into one cube(ish thing).
Lenovo introduced its Helix detachable last year, with a 11.6-inch, 1080p screen, a beefy Intel Core i5 chip inside and a battery-boosting keyboard dock. Pretty much a Surface Pro. This year it's back with a new, slimmer body and it's one of the first gadgets out there to rep Intel's newest "Core M" brains.
The first Carbon X1 did the impossible by making business laptops cool. Now, the newest version of the 14-inch ThinkPad is even cooler, thanks to some minor improvements and the addition of an adaptive keyboard.
2012 was a big year for laptops. Windows 8 came along with its touch-centric worldview, Intel kept plugging away on its ultrabook crusade, and Apple finally started pumping out Retina MacBooks. Here's our list of the most important machines of the year.
The ThinkPad is a legendary machine—it's been in space, it's displayed in the Museum of Modern Art, and as of today, the classic computer is 20 years old. Happy birthday, old guy.
Lenovo ThinkPads have a strong, almost cult-like following, and for good reason. This sturdy, high-performance line of business notebooks has long-set the gold standard for keyboard quality, with fantastic tactile feedback, great key layouts and slightly convex keys that are easy to find by feel. So when the company…
Tablets may be the next big thing in mobile computing, but don't count out ultrabooks just yet. At least not until you've given Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Carbon—a feather-weight, carbon fiber workhorse a closer look. It's tough, it's light, and you don't have to be an office drone to crave it.
The lid is off the Lenovo ThinkPad, touted as the first tablet for enterprise-level business. I just spent some time sizing it up, and you know what? It's kind of exactly what the suits are looking for.
Lenovo's got three new slates today, and they're going for a scattershot. The IdeaPad K1 is the first Android tablet "certified for Netflix"; the ThinkPad offers a biz-oriented dock (also, Netflix); and the IdeaPad P1. Which, uh, runs Windows 7.
IBM turns 100 today, but since Willard Scott hasn't paid tribute yet we'll do our part to wish America's most innovative company the happiest of birthdays. And for every Watson and ThinkPad you've already heard of, there are hundreds—thousands—of life-altering inventions for which we can thank Big Blue. More »
Here's an idea for an IBM centennial prank: Swap one of those newer ThinkPads on display at Best Buy—say the ThinkPad L520—with the original model, the seminal IBM ThinkPad 700c. See how long it takes customers to notice.
Lenovo refers to their ThinkPad X1 as a crossover computer. Made for the business set, the Intel Core i7 processor packed into its 0.67-inch body will appeal to a more consumer crowd as well. This wants to go mainstream.
Lenovo is leaking like a poorly built ship this Easter Sunday: This Is My Next just broke word of a not-yet-officially acknowledged Honeycomb-equipped ThinkPad tablet, due out (with stylus) this July.
Comparisons to the MacBook Air have already been made of the just leaked Lenovo ThinkPad X1, so we won't berate you with them here (ok, just one: It's slim too!). Instead, what's unique?
