5G is coming, and no, it didn’t give everyone coronavirus. It is going to make connectivity faster and more efficient, not just with phones but also tablets and computers. MediaTek has been working hard to bring 5G to a tremendous number of devices, and now they’ll have even more devices to power thanks to a partnership with Intel.
Stressed about social distancing, confused about lockdowns, and generally feeling like the world has gone topsy turvy?

It honestly looks like Lenovo’s design teams just never sleep. They’re constantly updating their lineups to make them faster, thinner, stronger, and the new updated Lenovo ThinkPad P Series Mobile Workstations are the latest to get refreshed. They’re even going peak late-90’s with a ThinkPad X1 Extreme (only counts if you hear it in a raspy pro wrestler voice).
If there’s one thing the COVID-19 lockdown has taught us (besides washing your hands, not breathing close to others, and listening to science), it’s that connectivity matters now more than ever. The new reality of working outside the office regularly couldn’t have happened 15 years ago. Lenovo and Verizon are taking that connectivity to the next level with their Lenovo Flex 5G PC.
Linux may not be the first operating system that springs to mind for the average user, but it has plenty of ardent fans.

Yea, there’s a market there, and Lenovo doesn’t want it left behind.

There’s a lot of buzz about folding displays right now; in the US, we have the OG Samsung Fold along with the new Samsung Z Flip and Motorola Razer flip-style phones from which to choose.

Full transparency, I’ve been enamored by Apple’s Ecosystem for so long, that I’ve almost had to challenge myself to step outside of my normal way of thinking to embrace that there are more affordable, more capable options out there.

One of the best things about CES is learning about the future.

That’s the sort of world the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus inhabits, as it is both an eInk tablet AND a full computer!
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!
Gaming computing is a whole different world; while business laptops focus on portability and battery life, and consumers want thin and light, gaming is all about power and shaving precious seconds off every mouse click and keystroke. Lenovo hasn’t forgotten the gaming community, and they’ve got an updated Legion notebook as well as a slew of monitors and other accessories.
If I mention Lenovo to the average non-techie, there’s a 50/50 shot they know the name.

ThinkPad and the associated computers are just solid machines, and it’s always exciting to see new ones at CES!
Lenovo and NEC have both been around for some time, and they’ve teamed up to bring their combined expertise to a new line of computers, whether you’re looking for a notebook or a stylish all-in-one, all under the new LAVIE brand.
