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!
After spending countless hours scouring the latest press releases, sitting through virtual embargoed showcases on new products, planning to be in Vegas, and once again having to attend virtually, we’ve found that the best-laid plans don’t always work out. Even so, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most innovative and exciting tech that came out of CES while trying to stay away from products that won’t ship or become available in 2022. So, without further ado, we present Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2022 Awards!
Lenovo Legion might sound like a small army of robots from a science fiction movie, but it’s actually Lenovo’s line of impressive gaming laptops, desktops, and accessories. They have new laptops in the form of the Legion 5i/5 Pro, Legion 5, and the Legion 5i, plus monitors, keyboard, and mice to bring your gaming to the next level!
Whether you’re planning on upgrading your computing power with some new Lenovo devices, or you just need to refresh some of your accessories and peripherals, Lenovo has a slew of new monitors, mice, and other accessories designed to make your 2022 start with a bang!
Lenovo is synonymous with quality computers. They make devices for every budget and use case, and they’re consistently raising the bar for themselves. This year’s crop of new computers brings further innovation and power to Lenovo’s family of PCs, so brace your wallets and get excited!
Sure, your home is smart, but it can always be a little bit smarter. It’s the little things that make smart objects more useful, and Lenovo understands that smarter items need great design as well as intelligence to become integral to your everyday life. That’s why they’re rolling out the new Lenovo Smart Clock Essential with Amazon Alexa alongside some new ambient light docks for it.
In the nearly 30 years that it’s been around, the Lenovo ThinkPad line has become legendary for good reason. They’ve always been known as the laptops you can rely on to be fast, well-built, and with every feature you might want or need to get anything and everything done. Lenovo is adding to that legacy with the new Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 1 and Z16 Gen 1, offering impressive specifications and environmental friendliness to bring things to the next level.
We wrote about the Lenovo Smart Frame when it was first introduced at CES 2020. We loved how it was styled like a professionally matted portrait and that it used AI to curate your photo collection and build custom digital collages. You could display your own photos or choose from hundreds of artworks to show from the companion app, and you could use hand gestures to play, pause, or continue the displayed images. Well, this year, their fantastic Smart Frame is getting some significant upgrades!
Ahead of CES 2022, we’ve got word that there’s a new line-up of Lenovo ThinkVision large format displays designed for remote and in-person classrooms and meetings. The Lenovo ThinkVision T86, T75, and T65 are each 4K displays that come sized by inches corresponding to their names. Each ThinkVision Display has integrated whiteboard software that offers a comfortable writing experience for the person presenting; each display comes complete with speakers, microphones, and modular webcams, so they are ideally suited for collaborating with people —in-person or over conference calls.
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!
As a creator, my typical day consists of making complex graphics and animations, working with super-high-resolution images, and editing massive video files. Will the Lenovo ThinkBook 16p Gen 2 be able to keep up with my super demanding workflow?
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!
Has anyone ever really looked at their laptop and thought, “man, if only this could also be flipped into a tablet!”? I’ll admit, I’ve always seen convertible laptops as a cool idea but one that seemed to be a solution in search of a problem. But I’ve learned the error of my ways this summer, as I experienced a few times where convertible laptops offered so much flexibility that it completely changed my workflow!
It’s that time of year again! As students of all ages head back to their schools and universities, whether they are attending down the block or across the country, we’ve prepared a list of back to school items that will help make the transition go more smoothly. After you peruse the list, be sure to enter our giveaway at the end — we have a Lenovo Legion Tower 7i valued at $2,439.99 you can win!
I thought I had found a near-perfect laptop in the Lenovo Yoga 9i, but that was before I met its even more compact sibling, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i. Although choosing the IdeaPad Slim 9i over the Yoga 9i requires you to do without the 360º rotating screen with the Dolby soundbar hinge that makes the Yoga 9i a true 2-in-1, there’s an excellent trade-off. In return, you get an even slimmer, lighter, and less expensive laptop that is also gorgeous to look at, a pleasure to use, and that’s powerful enough to do just about everything.
Some of my favorite laptops have been from Lenovo over the years. I’ve had many Thinkpads and laptops, and I currently own a Yoga 710. When they offered to send me the 2021 version of the Lenovo Flex 5 14″ 2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop (ITL05) on loan, I had to check it out. Will the 11th generation Core i5, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage in this svelte frame impress, or will it disappoint? Let’s take a look.
The world is slowly going back to some form of normal, but whether you’re working from home or back in the office, you’re probably looking to upgrade your tech. Lenovo has your back, with a slew of new updates for their powerful ThinkPads and a new 34″ ThinkVision P34w monitor with a curved display!
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!
One of the many things inadvertently learned during the last year has been that working remotely isn’t always as easy or as efficient as it should be. Lenovo Go, a new Lenovo sub-brand, was designed with a hybrid workforce in mind; they want to provide needed tools for better mobile productivity. Their first two products are the 65W 20,000mAh Lenovo Go USB-C Laptop Power Bank and the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse.
Lenovo Legion might sound like a branch of the robot uprising, but it’s actually Lenovo‘s gaming arm. They combine the reliability and power you already expect from Lenovo with the fun of gaming!
