16″ Lenovo Next-Gen ThinkPad X1 Fold Looks Like It Could Be a Road Warrior’s Best Friend

As much as I appreciate and enjoy using the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4’s expansive 16″ display, traveling with such an unwieldy laptop isn’t always easy, much less ideal. The X1 Extreme is almost impossible to use in tighter spaces (i.e., airline economy seats); a 14″ or smaller travel laptop makes more sense. Still, I struggle to recreate the same productivity I enjoy on the X1 Extreme when using something smaller for all but the most basic tasks. The just-announced Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold appears to be my perfect solution. Check this out.






Lenovo Slims Things Down While Upping the Power of Their Latest Laptops

The very first laptop I ever used was one my father had, and it was at least three (or more!) inches thick. At the time, it still felt like the peak of technological achievement.

Acer Aspire Vero Notebooks Help You Make Every Day Earth Day

Acer Offers Four New Educational Chromebooks for At-Home and In-Class Learning

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!


Lenovo Aims to Help Education Through the Pandemic with the Lenovo 10W tablet, Lenovo 13W Yoga, and Lenovo NetFilter

It’s been almost two years since the pandemic began. Ask any parent how it’s going, but keep a box of tissues, a bottle of wine, or both handy for the response. Lenovo may not be able to help there, but they are looking for how they can use technology to help kids get caught back up after what’s been a very uneven two years of schooling. They’re rolling out the Lenovo 10W tablet, Lenovo 13W Yoga, and Lenovo NetFilter to help get kids hooked up with the right tools to keep their education going!
