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. Over the course of the last few months, I’ve been checking out Lenovo’s ThinkBook 13s as my Daily Driver, and let me tell you, it is one great utility laptop.
Another CES has come and gone, and as we have in the past, we’ve sorted through hundreds upon hundreds of products to bring you the ones we thought were the most exciting, useful, disruptive, or clever. Take a look at our Best of CES 2020 award picks, and see what you think!
One of the best things about CES is learning about the future. Companies announce what’s definitely coming, but they also talk about their ambitious projects, the ones they’re still refining but show the direction they see for the future. Dell showed us two concept PCs this week that aren’t yet available but indicate where Dell sees the future of computing, and it looks amazing!
Lenovo never fails to roll out exciting devices during CES, and their new laptop offerings are no exception. They’re upping the foldable game from phones to a ThinkPad, but if speed is more your thing, there’s also the super-speedy and very stylish Lenovo Ducati 5 notebook!
Most people hear “yoga” and think of body twisting poses and stretchy pants. Tech fiends hear “Yoga” and immediately think of the Lenovo line of 2-in-1 laptops with hinges that exhibit far more flexibility than most humans. If that’s you, read on for the latest and greatest from Lenovo’s signature Yoga line of computers!
If there’s a specific computer niche out there, someone has designed a device to fit it. It might seem weird to the average person, but depending on your needs it could be the perfect machine. 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 you hadn’t noticed by the onslaught of CES news here and on other sites, the event’s news cycle is in full swing. Although the show floors won’t actually open until Tuesday the 7th, we’re already hard at work bringing you the latest. One of the brands that never fails to disappoint with new and upgraded products is Lenovo, and this year is no exception.
If I mention Lenovo to the average non-techie, there’s a 50/50 shot they know the name. But as soon as I say “ThinkPads”, eyes light up and inevitably there’s a story about how a ThinkPad was or is the person’s favorite computer. 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.
If you’re an artist or graphic designer, or even just a hobbyist in that world, you want tools that make being creative easier and more fun. Lenovo is looking for ways to inspire your muse through technology, with a slew of Yoga Creator and IdeaCentre Creator devices!
We’re past the days of “Dude, you’re getting a Dell”, but after reviewing everything Dell has on deck for 2020, that 20+-year-old catchphrase might make a comeback, because, well…you’re going to want a Dell!
EVOO is Walmart’s latest private-label gaming laptop brand and they’re well-specced at a surprisingly affordable price. Tuned by THX, Ltd., renowned for the certification of world-class cinemas, these laptops feature THX Spatial Audio technology for immersive audio as well as displays that provide vibrant colors and crisp contrast. These new laptops start at an impressive MSRP of $1,199.
Here to spread a bit of holiday cheer and end the year on a high note, Lenovo has sent us a ThinkBook 14s to give away to one of our lucky readers! This laptop has a 14″ FHD IPS anti-glare display (non-touchscreen), 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, an 8th generation Intel i5-8265U 1.6GHz processor, a fingerprint scanner for security, and it runs Windows 10 Home.
The idea of an “always-on”, “always connected” computer has been around for a while. Unfortunately, the available technology wasn’t quite ready to make such computers possible. Thanks to the just-announced new Qualcomm Snapdragon Compute platform portfolio, the “always computer” may finally be at hand. Long battery life, AI, and cellular connectivity are just the beginning of this revolution.
5G is the next big thing in wireless, and everyone is looking forward to fast speeds and angry Nextdoor conspiracy theory posts. MediaTek is on it (the speeds, not the conspiracy theories), and they’re partnering with Intel to deploy 5G modems for laptops. So far, HP and Dell are slated to be among the first rolling out the new modems in early 2021, so keep your eyes peeled.
Berlin’s annual IFA show is the largest consumer electronics event in Europe with “more digital lifestyle products in one place than any other show worldwide.” After walking the show floor, sitting in on private pre-briefings, standing inside packed press conferences, and attending media-only showcase events, these are the items we’ve chosen for Gear Diary’s Best of IFA 2019 Awards.
The folks at Lenovo pop out so many amazing devices, I’m starting to think they never sleep. Every few months, they’re taking products that already made you go “Whoa…” and making them even better. New Yoga laptops, tablets, all-in-ones, and monitors are redefining what to expect from your computing arsenal!
Lenovo lavished attention on their business line with a ThinkPad refresher, but heading into IFA they’re showing some love to consumers as well with new lineups in monitors, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, and desktops!
We’re headed into the fall, which means major refreshed lineups of all kinds of tech in time for the holiday season. Dell and Alienware are here to capture your imagination and your wallet with all-new XPS, Inspiron, Alienware, and Dell G devices!
