The Ultimate Road Warrior Laptop? Meet the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 10:00 PM

"The first ThinkPad X1 was a great business ultraportable laptop–we especially loved the keyboard–but at 3.8 pounds it was on the hefty side. The new ThinkPad X1 Carbon weights just 3 pounds but packs a larger 14-inch screen (up from 13 inches) and an Ivy Bridge processor. In fact, Lenovo says this is the lightest 14-inch Ultrabook on the market. Plus, the unit charges to 80 percent in just 30 minutes."

I'm excited to see that Lenovo keeps improving upon their X-series of laptops/Ultrabooks. From humble, hefty, and somewhat underpowered beginnings with the X1, up through the X120e that I own, and beyond, we finally herald the arrival of the latest magnesium and carbon fiber model, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Weighing-in at about 3-pounds, 18mm thick, with Ivy Bridge on-board, and a 14-inch screen with 1600x900 resolution, at last we get a backlit keyboard (with the DEL key back where it belongs), in arguably the lightest 14-inch laptop available. Information on pricing and availability (this summer, we hope) will be forthcoming. This may be my ideal Windows Ultrabook.

Rumor: Lenovo 5-inch LePad (IdeaTab) Tablet

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 10:30 PM

"No matter how tempting the specs on Lenovo's leaked 10.1-inch tablet are, you might prefer something fairly more portable just for the sake of your regular pockets. Well, it looks like Lenovo's got you covered, too. Freshly delivered from the same anonymous tipster are a stash of photos depicting a dual-core 5-inch Android tablet, which will apparently be marketed under the usual LePad brand in China as well as an upcoming IdeaTab brand for elsewhere (to help differentiate tablets from the IdeaPad laptop line)."

Considering how poorly Dell's 5-inch Streak tablet has done in the marketplace, it's a bit puzzling that Lenovo would consider building their own 5-inch tablet. Could this be actually a (big) phone from Lenovo? All the photos provided in this "leak" were vague at best, with none showing a screen, so, my guess would be that this "tablet" *will* really be a phone. Thoughts, anyone?

At Last, Lenovo Joins the Tablet Race with the IdeaPad K1

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 10:30 PM

"Let's do a roll call, shall we? Who doesn't have a Honeycomb tablet to shill in the states? Acer, ASUS, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba all have something to their names, with Dell possibly bringing its China-only Dell Streak 10 Pro here too. Until now, Lenovo was one glaring exception. The company already had a head start selling the LePad tablet in China, but it was only last month that it announced not one, but two Honeycomb slates for the US market: the IdeaPad K1 for mainstream consumers, and the ThinkPad Tablet for business users (and a fair share of geeks, too)."

Is this a case of "me too," or "too little too late," or "better late than never," or perhaps even "We waited until we could do this right?" Lenovo's IdeaPad K1 is a decent, visually attractive tablet for the money, but is it enough to overhaul the competition? My guess is no. Arriving as Wifi-only for now, but with Android 3.1, lots of bundled apps, and some customization to make it more "user friendly," the K1 doesn't offer really anything to make it stand above the competition. So my answer for now is that this is a "me too" tablet.

iPad, TouchPad, ThinkPad or Windows: And the Business Winner is?

Posted by John London in "Laptop Thoughts Articles & Resources" @ 01:30 PM

"This week, Good Technology released numbers indicating that the iPad was outdistancing Android-based products for the enterprise, but it didn't track the RIM Playbook or HP TouchPad, which are two products that specifically target the enterprise. In addition, the ThinkPad isn’t shipping yet and it might be the best shot Android has in getting into the enterprise."

I haven't worked in the corporate sector for a few years now, so I haven't thought much about this, but tablets invading the work force in a big way. With Apple's overwhelmingly successful iPad one would have thought it was a no brainer. It turns out that, considering most corporations use Microsoft solutions, it was closer than I thought. One reason could be because the corporate force needs productivity tools that the iPad can't yet provide. The iPad is a great media device (I just spent a few hours on one over the past week), however, it's not like it can replace the laptop for productivity.

That might change one day as businesses start requesting more productivity tools from the development community. And that's the twist coming from the article. Windows 8 on the tablet is not to far away, (business time that is) so the tablet market will really heat up sometime next year. The unknown right now is the HP Touchpad because of the large corporate sector they have pull in.

Android seems to be having problems right now and until the issues are fixed, corporations are looking to steer clear for now. Having worked in a large corporation I have my thoughts on which tablet will eventually win out. And, at this point, I reserve the right to speak. 2012 will shape up nicely for the tablet in the business sector and which tablet will win out is anyone's guess at this point. I would like to hear what your company in terms of tablets is doing, and why?

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet: Business Competitor for the ASUS Transformer

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 11:30 PM

"Lenovo is getting into the tablet game in a big way, announcing three slates: the Android-based IdeaPad K1 and ThinkPad Tablet as well as the Windows 7-powered IdeaPad Tablet P1. The two Android tablets feature Android Honeycomb 3.1, 1-GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processors, and 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 screens. Both should be available for pre-order today, with the IdeaPad Tablet P1 not shipping until Q4 of this year."

A competitor for the ASUS Transformer tablet has arrived from Lenovo: the Android-powered (Honeycomb) ThinkPad Tablet. Courting the business user, the ThinkPad Tablet has a tough Gorilla Glass display, and enterprise features like encryption, IT manageability, a full-sized USB port, Computrace security software, Citrix remote access support, and full stylus support for pen ($30) or finger input. An option will be a ThinkPad-style keyboard dock ($99).

"The IdeaPad K1, priced at $499 for the 32GB model, weighs a reasonable 1.65 pounds and supports 10-point multitouch gestures. Ports include a micro SD card reader, micro HDMI out, and mic/headphone jacks. Other benefits include support for DRM content so you can download protected movies to the device, free 2GB of Cloud storage, Lenovo’s SocialTouch software, and access to both the Google Market and Lenovo’s own Android app store."

A pretty generic Honeycomb tablet, but with a bright IPS display, Lenovo's Launcher, and Lenovo's App Shop. For users that are scared of native Android, this tablet adds a UI-layer that hides the underlying OS. Otherwise, it's pretty generic but with a better screen, another source for apps, and some additional apps pre-loaded. For $499, this seems to be a decent competitor to the iPad 2.

Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet P1 with Windows 7 Introduced

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 11:00 PM

"We know, we know -- Windows 8 isn't splashing down on consumer devices for a good long while, but seriously, how's a boy to get excited about something that's already old hat? And moreover, something that has never, ever worked out. Every single Windows 7 tablet that we've tested has suffered a similar fate: too bulky, too sluggish, not longevous enough and too difficult to to operate sans a keyboard and mouse. That said, Lenovo's providing a darkhorse option for those uninterested in its duo of new Honeycomb tablets, with the IdeaPad Tablet P1 bringing Windows 7 into a familiar 10.1-inch shell."

Going where others have basically failed, Lenovo has introduced a Windows 7 tablet. The IdeaPad Tablet P1 sports an Intel 1.5GHz processor, a 1280x800 10.1-inch capacitive screen, up to 2GB RAM, up to 64GB of SSD storage, WiFi and 3G (WCDMA/EVDO) , a USB "connector," microSD slot, bluetooth, stylus input support, a docking port, a 2-megapixel webcam,a 2-cell battery lasting about 6-hours, and in gray or orange (the back). Availability is scheduled for Q4 2011, and no details are available yet on price. Personally I think that there is pent-up demand for a good Windows "business" tablet (me included), so I'll be interested, if it becomes a reality.

Lenovo Offers the G570

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Laptop Thoughts News" @ 12:30 PM

"The Lenovo G570 ($749) is a 15-inch laptop that has a little more flair than its ThinkPad cousins, featuring a glossy lid and a metal palm rest. But you also get ThinkPad-like amenitites, including an AccuType keyboard. Add to that a fast Intel Core i5 processor and a roomy 500GB hard drive and you've got a solid system."

Another day, another new laptop. The Lenovo G570 is a good addition to your options though its weakish graphics does have me worried. Even if you have no interest in high powered 3D gaming, a powerful GPU can offer a lot of benefits such as faster Photoshopping to video processing to bitcoin mining. One thing that it does have going for it, and one thing I appreciate about Thinkpads is a nice keyboard. I personally think they could make a mint licensing the keyboard out to other manufacturers. One can dream.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420s Review: Lightweight and Powerful

Posted by John London in "Laptop Thoughts Articles & Resources" @ 12:00 PM

Lenovo's ThinkPad T420s is the business user's ultimate Goldilocks notebook. At 14.1-inches and 4 pounds, the laptop is extremely light and portable, but large enough to provide a generous high-res screen, a powerful processor, and full-sized keyboard and touchpad. However, with a price of $1,349 (as configured), the ThinkPad T420s costs more than heavier 14-inch systems such as the ThinkPad T420 or the HP EliteBook 8460p. Spoiler alert: this lightweight notebook is worth the investment.

I have not used a ThinkPad since around Y2K. At that time I swore that I would never buy one. Of course work bought them and even today the ThinkPad is still a business worrier’s tool. Boy has time change my thoughts. First, it weights a mere 4lbs and less than a 1 inch thick. The build quality is excellent with the use of carbon fiber and plastics for durability, in case of a fall. Even the screen is excellent for watching HD movies. The keyboard was even mentioned as having the ability to channel a spill (coffee or your favorite beverage) away from the computer. Of course the downside is the cost. Time has changed the ThinkPad and is looking like a contender. For you ThinkPad fans does this fit the bill?

Lenovo ThinkPad X1: Maybe the Best ThinkPad Ever

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Dell Laptops & Netbooks" @ 10:00 PM

"The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is the latest high-end ThinkPad from Lenovo - bringing tapered sides, a backlit spill resistant keyboard, rollcage and Gorilla Glass screen to highly mobile package that feels and looks thinner and lighter than it is designed for mobile professionals who will appreciate the military spec ruggedness and the ability to charge the built in battery to 80% in about 30 minutes."

Quite an outstanding review, ending with a statement that this is the best ThinkPad that they've ever tested. From its military-spec (MILSPEC) build quality, to its metal hinges, tapered edges and Gorilla Glass screen, this is a solid, rugged system, designed with the road warrior in mind. This is a serious competitor to the MacBook Air!

With outstanding Dolby Home Theater V4 audio, an excellent backlit keyboard (Lenovo's first on a ThinkPad), dedicated VoIP keys, and rapidcharge technology (charges from 0% to 80% in about 30 minutes), adding Lenovo's optional battery slice (called a battery wedge in the video) roughly doubles battery life to around 8-hours, meeting the goal of being untethered for an entire business day.

Pricing with an Intel Core i3, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, 4GB RAM, 720p HD Camera, a 320GB 7200rpm hard drive, a 13.3-inch LCD at 1366x768, and, mercifully, very little bloatware to uninstall, is $1249, and ships within eight (8) business days. The battery slice will add about $150 to the overall cost.

A Look At The Lenovo Thinkpad X1

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Laptop Thoughts News" @ 08:30 AM

"Sure, Lenovo hasn’t done a great job of keeping a lid on its new premium ultraportable, but that doesn’t mean the official unveil of the Thinkpad X1 is any less exciting. The 13-inch laptop is far from just another thin and light ThinkPad in Lenovo’s stash — this one is actually packed to the little red nub with new tech and a totally fresh design."

When I hear the name Thinkpad, I think battle hardened workhorse laptop. Of course, that comes from growing up with them as the corporate laptop of choice when the Thinkpads were still under the IBM banner. The X1 is a thin, light and updated with the latest tech while still keeping that classic black slate look. I do not know if it is considered as trendy or as hip as a Macbook or Samsung Series 9, but I every Thinkpad I have had has been a trusted and comfortable companion. Do any of you have a favourite laptop? A strong friend who has been with you through thick and thin?

ThinkPad X1 Maybe Coming May 17, 2011: Fast, Thin, Rugged, Expensive

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 07:00 PM

"Lenovo hasn’t officially announced the ThinkPad X1, but the company has now released a trailer for the upcoming ultrathin notebook that shows off the X1′s features and teases a May 17th arrival date."

The X1 has gotten quite a bit of press, the raves being thinness, a fast processor, SSD, 8GB RAM, great battery with a fast recharge cycle, military-spec ruggedness (gorilla glass, somewhat puncture-proof, waterproof keyboard and somewhat drop-proof), and a backlit keyboard; the only negative so far is the estimated street-price of about $3000. This may entice me back to the ThinkPad and Windows 7 camp.

Lenovo Has a Honeycomb ThinkPad Tablet on the Way!

Posted by Craig Horlacher in "Android News" @ 04:30 AM

"...we just got a hold of a juicy PowerPoint that reveals a new ThinkPad tablet for “on-the-go professionals.” No, this isn’t a Windows 7 convertible like you’d expect — this is a full-fledged Android 3.0 slate complete with an optional pen and an accompanying “keyboard portfolio case.”"

Those of you who have read my posts know that I'm not a fan of Apple's mobile devices. One thing that I do think Apple has done right is use IPS LCD's. OLED's, I don't care what kind, just take too much juice too much of the time and while a 40,000/1 contrast ratio is all kinds of hotness I'm not convinced that 1000/1 isn't good enough for my phone. IPS LCD's are just as bright as possible without using too much power. I'm glad there is finally an Android tablet coming that will use this display technology and, unlike Apple, it will not have a screen resolution and aspect ratio from 1995;) Besides that, I'm a big ThinkPad fan. I had one for about 8-10 years, yeah it was IBM but still made by Lenovo and took a real beating. It was definitely a high quality and well built machine so I'm glad to see Lenovo releasing a Honeycomb tablet. One other thing I like about this is the full size SD port and full size USB port. A full size HDMI port on there would be great while they're at it but MicroHDMI isn't too bad since they're becoming fairly common anyway. I should make sure to mention this information is an unconfirmed leak so please check out the source for yourself from the "Read" link below. Let us know if anything about this tablet gets your attention. What do you think of the optional keyboard and pen input?

Lenovo X1 Takes On the MacBook Air

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 09:00 PM

"Lenovo is taking another swing at the MacBook Air. Having discontinued their X300 ultraportable line, Lenovo seemed content to compete at the 11" and 12" form factor, without sitting a horse at the popular but Air dominated 13.3" form factor. But a listing on a Swiss computer distributor's site leaked and documents released on the Lenovo channel distributors' site confirmed that the ThinkPad purveyor is planning to take on the Air with a 21.5 mm thick ultraportable notebook called the X1."

Lenovo is set to battle the MacBook Air with their new X1, throwing a much faster processor, backlit keyboard, and new battery technology into the fray. Advertised in Switzerland as "the thinnest ThinkPad ever built," the X1 has passed eight US military specification durability tests, has a (outdoor panel) 1366x768 screen made of Corning "gorilla glass," and sports the newest 32nm Intel Core i5 processor. Windows 7 64-bit Professional is standard. Also standard are a LED-backlit keyboard, USB 3.0, HDMI-out, TPM 1.2 security module, a fingerprint reader, 8GB RAM, 160GB SSD, and -unlocked- 3G networking. Battery life is estimated at five hours using only the primary battery, and ten hours adding a 35W battery "slice." This same battery appears to be also headed for Lenovo's X-Slate Honeycomb tablet in the near future.

Some of this information is missing in the (English) story, but the Swiss-German link has additional tidbits to be gleaned, including a starting weight of about 3-pounds, increasing to about 3.8-pounds, presumably adding the battery slice, with the thickness ranging from 16.5-mm to 21.5mm. This looks like a pretty spectacular notebook, so it'll be interesting to see if it performs as well as it looks. Available in Switzerland today, expected cost is estimated at around $2,200 in the US. Swiss prices are higher. Pretty expensive, but it does include Lenovo's three year warranty. Nice to see some serious competition in this space!

Lenovo ThinkPad X220: Strong Performance, Terrific Battery

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 11:30 PM

"Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 series has a long history of combining light-weight portability, epic battery life, and uncompromising performance. The 12.5-inch, $1,299 ThinkPad X220 offers a couple of new riffs on this familiar theme, including a 16:9 screen, an Intel 2nd Generation Core processor, and a large textured clickpad, but can the new model live up to the storied legacy of its predecessors?"

Lenovo keeps on improving the X200 series. The X220, at 3.6-pounds has processor/video processing (Intel Core i5/Integrated Intel HD Graphics) that handles videos with aplomb (but is not a very good game playing system) on a great 1366x768 screen, has a typical superb keyboard and TrackPoint/touchpad, and battery options that offer up to an astounding 15 hours and 44 minutes when all the battery options (at additional cost) are added. Only real negatives listed are a somewhat dodgy web cam (that could probably be fixed by Lenovo) and some issues dealing with a "shortish" palmrest and unwanted clicks from accidental touches on the touchpad while using the TrackPoint.

The $1,299 price for the model tested jumps quickly when additional options are added, such as $179 for the battery slice (that sits under the X220 and adds an inch in height and 1.6-pounds of weight), or various SSD configurations, with prices not yet available, or additional RAM. If you'd like a great performing laptop that has all-day (and then some) battery life, the X220 may be for you, just be prepared for a bit of sticker shock when options are added.

ThinkPad T,W,L Series to Feature Intel's Sandy Bridge

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 11:30 PM

"Today, Lenovo announced updates to its popular ThinkPad T, W, and L series business notebooks, updating all models to Intel's 2nd Generation Core Series processors (Sandy Bridge) and adding faster boot times, longer battery life, and enhanced conferencing features. With model numbers each ending in "20," the new ThinkPad T420, T420s, T520, L420, L520, and W520 are due to ship at the end of March."

What's new here? Plenty: a faster BIOS promising 30-percent faster system start-up; SSD options; claimed battery life of 15-hours (!!) on the T420 with a 9-cell battery; 30-hours with a 9-cell battery slice added; "only" 10-hours on the slim T420S with a 6-cell battery and a bay battery instead of an optical drive; NVIDIA Optimus technology on several models; better wireless connectivity resumption; enhanced conferencing; and lots more. The T420S is expected to weigh less than 4-pounds, the T420 4.84-pounds, the T520 5.57-pounds, and their new "value-oriented" models, the L420 and L520 weigh 5.1-pounds and 5.75-pounds, respectively. There will also be a workstation-class model, the W520, offering higher resolution, more robust processors, up to 32GB DDR3 RAM, better graphics, and up to 10.7-hours of battery life. Quite an impressive new lineup from Lenovo.

ThinkPad X120e: Nearing Greatness!?

Posted by Michael Knutson in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 02:30 PM

"Most things deserve a second chance, right? Hey, if they promise improvement, we think so, and that's exactly what we're giving Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e. If you recall, the previous X100e was quite a disappointment, and that's actually putting it rather nicely -- not only did the 11.6-inch system redefine the term "lapburner," but it struggled to last 3.5 hours on a charge. It was bordering on tragic, but Lenovo's ready to right all those wrongs with the X120e. While it has kept the chassis and the wonderful chiclet keyboard unchanged, it's subbed out AMD's older Neo chip for the long awaited Fusion Zacate APU."

As a mostly happy former owner of a ThinkPad x100e, the x120e follow-on (or fixed version, if you prefer) keeps the best features from the x100e, and has fixed the worst offenders, so may be a system to consider in the light-but-not-a-netbook (or notbook, as Engadget calls them) ultraportable category. The former's anemic processor has been upgraded to AMD's Fusion Zacate, battery life is significantly improved to about five hours, and the x120e no longer roasts the hand. A couple down-sides mentioned: fan is a bit loud; battery life is still not "all day" and still juts out the back; touchpad could use some improvement; and the speakers sound a bit tinny. In the plus column: 3.3-pounds; the keyboard and screen (matte, 1366x768) are still first-rate; construction is plastic but solid; it runs Windows 7 Professional 64-bit without a hiccup; its multitasking and performance is superb; it's not burdened with much crapware; it has HDMI-out; and pricing starts at $399 ($579 as tested by Engadget). Lenovo does listen to user feedback! Availability is shown only as "starting in February."

CES 2011: Lenovo IdeadPad Y570D Fast Boot

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 04:00 PM

Having a fast boot time on your desktop or laptop is an important aspect of how it performs, though I think it's somewhat less important than it was in years past. Most modern computers will instead resume from sleep or hibernate mode more often than a complete reboot. Still, if you're installing a software update that requires a reboot, you want your system to be back up and running as soon as possible. The brief demo above shows you how Lenovo is tackling this problem on their Y570D laptop - the boot up is closer to 12 or 13 seconds rather than nine seconds, but it's extremely impressive nonetheless. Nicely done Lenovo!

The Best of Both Worlds; The Lenovo IdeaPad U1

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Laptop Thoughts News" @ 01:00 PM

"The U1 is actually two computers. Detach the “display” and it turns into a tablet running Android. This half of the U1 runs on a separate Snapdragon processor and has its own connectivity (Wi-Fi, 3G), memory, storage, etc. Users can connect the base portion to an external display via HDMI and continue working with it while the tablet is off doing its own thing. The two halves aren’t dependent on each other, but they do work together."

I am torn when it comes to dual-booting type devices. The fact that you have two computers in one hand can be beneficial, but switching between the two can be a hassle and adds to how you have to manage the device. The U1 does look tempting and a good balance between usability and practicality. I would probably just end up using the IdeaPad as a notebook though, since I would tend to favour having the extra power. Can you imagine a scenario where being able to pull away the display and use it as an Android tablet is more practical?

Lenovo ThinkPad X120e

Posted by Chris Gohlke in "Other Laptops & Netbooks" @ 03:30 PM

"According to Lenovo, the Fusion E-Series APU (AMD’s word for combined graphics and CPU) will provide 65-percent faster graphics and 30-percent longer battery life than the AMD Neo processors provided on the original ThinkPad X100e. An HDMI-out port will allow users to play hi-def content on larger screens. Considering that the original X100e sometimes got a bit hot, we also hope the new processors will keep their cool. AMD has described the Fusion APU as enabling “cool-running” devices so we’ll see if that’s the case."

Probably the closest thing you are ever going to get to a netbook from Lenovo. At an expected price of under $400, looks like a winner for business; especially if, like a number of places, you are a Lenovo only shop.

Engadget Reviews the Lenovo IdeaPad U260

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Laptop Thoughts Articles & Resources" @ 04:30 PM

"It's obvious by now that we've got a real crush on the U260's bronzish, mocha exterior (it comes in an orange hue as well), and a glance at a few of the pictures in the gallery above makes it very easy to see why. It isn't as minimalistic as some others out there -- say Google's Cr-48 --but the soft-to-the-touch magnesium-aluminum alloy that envelops the system like a book cover gives the entire system a very clean and simplified look. Believe us, it's more than a welcome change from the glossy lids and rounded edges that we've gotten used to on the ThinkPad Edge family."

My interest was piqued when I saw this product teased a few months ago, but after reading this Engadget review, I'm quite disappointed. Lenovo, why on earth would you release a laptop that only has a 20 watt hour, four cell battery? People buying thin and light laptops value mobility and portability; those two traits mean that excellent battery life is a must. The thinner and lighter Macbook Air 13, in comparison, manages to pack in a 50 watt hour battery - which translates to at least two hours more battery life. Sure, the Macbook Air has a slower CPU, but having a strong CPU doesn't matter much in the end if there isn't some decent endurance to match.
