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!


Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2022 Awards

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 Dominates Gaming with Sleek New Laptops, Monitors, and Mice!

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!




Lenovo Smart Clock Essential Gains Alexa and Ambient Light Docks

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.


Lenovo ThinkPad Z13 Gen 1 and Z16 Gen 1 Bring Recycling and Style to the ThinkPad Line

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.


Lenovo Smart Frame Gets Even More Impressive with Great New Features!

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!


Lenovo ThinkVision T86, T75, and T65 Large Format Displays Will Make Remote Meetings and Classrooms More Collaborative, Interactive, and Engaging

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.





Lenovo and AT&T Combine Computers and Connectivity Like Cookies and Milk

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!


Convertible Laptops: Lenovo’s Yoga Line Has Changed My View on Them for the Better!

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!

14″ Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i Laptop Review: Power, Portability, and Excellent Battery Life in a Stylish and Svelte Package

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.


Lenovo Flex 5 14″ 2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop (ITL05) Review: All-Day, Flexible Computing in a Svelte Package

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.




Lenovo Go Empowers Remote Workers with a 65W 20K USB-C Laptop Power Bank and Wireless Multi-Device Mouse

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.
