We talk a lot about how important MediaTek is to your smartphone experience. However, they power more than just phones (a LOT more). Today is the first day of the 2022 MediaTek Summit in Sonoma, and they kicked it off by announcing the latest Pentonic 1000, Kompanio 520/528, and MediaTek T800 chipsets to make sure your television, Chromebook, and other devices are almost as smart as you are!
Lenovo makes fantastic Chromebooks. They also make amazing gaming computers. Now they’re combining the solid and affordable ChromeOS with the power and flash of a Lenovo gaming PC to create the IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook!
It doesn’t matter if you’re on the go regularly or just taking advantage of new, looser work from home policies. Chances are, you’re working more places than your office, and you need to make sure your laptop keeps up with you. Lenovo understands this, and they’re rolling out a new ThinkPad P16 and Chromebook C14 Enterprise to cover everyone’s laptop needs.
Another Mobile World Congress is in the books, and it was great to be able to attend in person for the first time since 2019! Seriously great. MWC is always heavy on new smartphone releases, and this year was no exception. Even so, there were plenty of other remarkable devices touting worthy upgrades or making their debuts. So with that, I give you Gear Diary’s Best of MWC 2022.
The world is slowly opening back up, but whether you’re working in the office, at home, or from your local diner, you still need to ensure that your computer can keep up with you! Luckily, Lenovo has been busy, and they’ve got an exciting slate of upgrades sure to capture your eye and make your gaming binge-watching productivity soar!
The ongoing pandemic has forced a shift in education that probably would have occurred anyway but has been profoundly accelerated. It’s no longer optional for kids to have access to a Chromebook or similar device; they’re becoming as necessary for education as a pen and spiral notebook. This need inspires new market innovations by companies like Acer, who are rolling out four new educational Chromebooks designed to fit various students’ (and teachers’) needs!
I’ve always had a soft spot for ChromeOS. There’s something so efficient and appealing about being able to pick up any Chromebook, login, and be ready to go in moments. I was sent the Lenovo Flex 5i 13″ 2-in-1 Chromebook to review, and it’s been such an enjoyable experience that it’s basically been the only computer I’ve reached for the last few weeks!
Whether you’re heading back to work or trying to improve your work-from-home setup, Lenovo has you covered with a slew of new devices. Need a laptop, monitor, earbuds, or something else? Read on to find out how Lenovo’s new devices will upgrade your tech in style.
Whether your workplace has a return-to-work plan or if you’re going to be rocking working permanently in your PJs from your living room, there’s a strong chance you’re going to be getting more and more work done on the go. The pandemic jump-started the concept of working from anywhere, and that’s not going to end even when it’s safe to go back into the water office. Lenovo and AT&T are looking to make this new work from anywhere in the world smoother and more efficient with a pair of Lenovo laptops connected right to that sweet, sweet AT&T mobile network!
Whether you’re using them for remote work, school, or at your business, for gaming, or consuming media, tablets have really proven their worth. The MediaTek Kompanio 1300T is a system on a chip (SoC) that will bring a premium experience to tablet users with its advanced 5G multimedia, AI, and gaming technologies.
A colleague recently described her love/hate relationship with Chromebooks to me. She loves that they have allowed her daughter to continue her studies during lockdown but hates the fact that they’re so cheap they’ve gone through three just this year. That wouldn’t be the case if she had a 13″ Lenovo ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook 2-in-1 Laptop. It’s rock-solid!
We don’t know what next year will bring when it comes to education and the pandemic. What we do know is that the trend of needing computers at just about every education level is definitely accelerating rapidly. Never one to miss a trend, Lenovo is prepared to dive into the education market with both Chrome OS and Windows laptops that can handle whatever the world is ready to throw at them (or, in the case of younger children, handle wherever it gets thrown). [Please don’t throw any computers.]
A full Windows operating system isn’t necessary to accomplish much of what many people do on their laptops. Many of us have found that Chromebooks are an affordable go-to for getting things done. If you’re in the market for a new Chromebook, you’re going to want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2; it starts at $549, and pre-orders open today.
Acer was one of the first computer manufacturers to see the value in Chrome OS, and they’ve especially been big on the convertible concept. The Acer Spin 514 Chromebook is the latest generation of Acer’s iconic touchscreen convertible laptops, and it’s a very impressive upgrade.
One of the things I’ve come to appreciate, as I’ve learned more about MediaTek, is how many of the everyday electronic items I use — and depend on — have MediaTek chips in them. Yet, I doubt that I’ve ever given much thought about what was making these devices work, which honestly says a lot about MediaTek’s ubiquitousness.
Do you need a new computer? Chances are, with all of us working and learning from home, if you don’t, then someone in your household might. Whether you need a Chromebook, a Windows PC, or some accessories, chances are Acer just announced a product that fits!
Chromebooks have gone from being a novelty to being incredible productivity tools (just ask any student how they’re surviving remote learning!) Lenovo knows that efficient, reliably, and speedy computers are something everyone needs. Enter the new ThinkPad C13 Yoga Chromebook Enterprise!
When announced at CES this year, the Lenovo Duet Chromebook attracted a lot of attention for putting some great features and looks into a budget-priced ChromeOS tablet. Everyone was intrigued – would it live up to the hype? Travis and I each bought one once they were released, and are ready to share some impressions after a few months of use.
Need a little something to perk up your back to school experience? We’ve got you! Lenovo has sent us a huge box of giveaway items that are looking for new homes, and we can’t wait to share them with you! Entry is easy, and if you are one of our lucky winners, one of these prizes will soon be in your hands.
Stressed about social distancing, confused about lockdowns, and generally feeling like the world has gone topsy turvy? You need some good old fashioned geeky retail therapy, and the good folks at Acer have your back with a slew of new computers to tempt your wallet and distract you from 24-hour news — or help you stream it faster. Your choice.
Chromebooks have been through many iterations since they first appeared. What was once a glorified web browser in computer form has emerged as a much more full-featured computing device with a number of variations depending on your needs. Lenovo has two new Chromebooks that break the mold, with a 2-in-1 device as well as a detachable tablet/laptop hybrid!
