If there’s one thing we learned a year into the pandemic, it’s that we always need new ways to stay entertained. If you’ve run out of things to stream, and your computer is screaming for mercy after being put through working all day and gaming all night, Dell and Alienware have the solution with new AMD Ryzen computers with NVIDIA graphics to handle all your gaming needs and wants!
What better way to celebrate the warming temperatures than to win a thin and light Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5? With a 14″ FHD touchscreen with narrow bezels, a 360º hinge, and an AMD Ryzen processor, this 2-in-1 laptop is perfect for working in the park on nice days.
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.]
There are new Lenovo ThinkPads, just in time for you to get your tax refund and justify that urge for a new shiny upgrade! There’s a lot here, so brace your wallet and get ready. Even better, you can feel good about upgrading to a new computer since Lenovo has been aggressively targetting reducing their environmental footprint, lowering it by 92% relative to 10 years ago. On to the good stuff, the gear!
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.
You probably know LG for their extremely impressive televisions, or their home appliances, or their phones. LG makes a huge lineup of impressive devices, and we’re getting more info on prices and availability for the LG gram laptops they announced at CES.
It’s not often that I whisper the words “gorgeous” to myself as I unwrap a laptop, but that is exactly what I did when I unboxed the Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1 PC. This slim, Shadow Black laptop has a bonded black leather lid, and it presents as a couture accessory. The laptop is gorgeous and begging to be touched. And on the inside? There is plenty of power and enough tech to show that this convertible beauty is a perfect marriage of form and function.
The Lenovo Yoga 7i is a 15” 2 in 1 laptop that is big, powerful, and it has a starting price of under $950. I’ve been using it for the past few weeks and, despite being a Mac guy, I’ve been rather impressed. The 15” screen hits a sweet spot between screen space and portability at an accessible price.
Nothing says CES like new laptops, and Acer has a whole crop of them for us! Whether you’re looking for an all-around workhorse or the chance to become a master gamer, you’re covered with the new Acer Predator Triton 300 SE, Acer Predator Helios 300, Acer Nitro 5, Acer Aspire 7, and the Acer Aspire 5.
You can’t talk PC gaming without including Alienware, and that’s because they’ve consistently pushed the envelope of power and aesthetics to create computers that look amazing and perform even better. Brace yourself and get your gaming chair warmed up for the Alienware m15 and m17 R4 laptops and the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 desktop!
Lenovo knows that we use our computers constantly as a tool to stay connected. They’re not just terminals; they’re the main tool determining if you’re getting your work done effectively. If you need a laptop that’s designed to help you power through, the Lenovo ThinkBook line is the gold standard, and the company has made an already impressive line of computers into an even more powerful lineup this year!
You might hear “Lenovo” and think “excellent business laptop,” but they do more than work hard. The Lenovo Legion line of gaming laptops aims to bring the same level of power and excellence to your gaming as they do to your day job (unless your day job title is Gamer). The latest Legion laptops and accessories are here to bring your gaming to the next level!
ThinkPad X1 devices are known for being thin, light, and powerful, but this year Lenovo is taking them to the next level with new Yoga Laptops that feature Titanium and Carbon exteriors; there’s even a detachable 2-in-1 ThinkPad X12 device!
LG has dropped their new gram laptops lineup, and they look great! Continuing the brand’s legacy of “go anywhere computing convenience,” LG gram laptops are ultra-light, ultra-portable, and they promise exceptional performance and long battery life.
Unfortunately, things have not gone back to normal simply because it’s 2021. Case in point, CES is virtual, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a significant amount of big news coming. Lenovo has a big slate of computer updates and future products for us to anticipate, as well as a peek at the new LAVIE MINI prototype — so let’s dive right in!
There are a few things you can count on every January: everyone will suddenly get the urge to exercise, you can never go wrong complaining that it’s either too cold or not cold enough, and an army of laptop and computer upgrades will be announced at CES. Dell is leading the charge with new Latitudes, Precision Workplaces, Optiflex towers, and monitors galore!
We’re hopefully going to see an end to the COVID-19 pandemic soon, but there will be some lasting changes to how we work. Even when people go back to work, it’s unlikely we’re all going to be mingling like the before days. Lenovo is all set to make this transition easier, whether it’s working from home or holding virtual meetings across the world, with a line of adorably tiny computers, webcams, a soundbar for better audio (no more “I hear feedback, is it you or me? Hello?”), and ThinkSmart Manager to make the whole thing run smoothly.
This Holiday Season will be unlike any we have previously experienced, and gift-giving will be too. After all, people feel the financial pinch and, many of us are spending more time in our homes than ever. Here are some of the items that might make meaningful and practical gifts this year. You might see something for you, too!
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.
The arms race on laptops these days is all about screens. Big ones, high definition ones, small bezels, touchscreens, and even bonus screens. Asus took a look at a 15in touchscreen with an 88% screen to body ratio and thought, “Needs more screen,” so they swapped out the touchpad for…another screen on the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX535LI.
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!
