Lenovo's ThinkCenter M70z is a multi-touch Windows 7 all-in-one desktop

As a longtime fan of the ThinkPad line, I have to admit to being more than a little curious about Lenovo's new ThinkCenter M70z just released in Japan. More than a little clunky-looking, this all-in-one desktop PC is marketed to Enterprise customers and runs Windows 7. With a multi-touch display, the M70z invites you to lay your hands all over it. Think of it as iMac's heftier, more promiscuous cousin.  Read More

Lenovo recently announced half a dozen new upgrades and additions to its "Think" line, including a smart tablet for business users, a speedy ultraportable laptop, a cut-price server and a new version of its "screen and a half" notebook first seen in 2008.

Lenovo's hybrid notebook and tablet PC, the IdeaPad U1

There has been a lot of pondering about exactly which niche the tablet PC will fit into in today's tech-centric mobile world. At this year's CES trade show in Las Vegas, Lenovo hopes to answer many of those questions by merging the familiarity of a laptop and the convenience and portability of a tablet PC into one package. The main innovation in the IdeaPad U1 is a detachable tablet PC screen which has its own operating system and processor but when docked in the laptop body shares both battery and processing power.  Read More

Lenovo S12 Netbook - the first ION-based netbook to market

We were starting to worry that it had been a couple of hours since we'd heard news of another netbook launch, but Lenovo has put our minds at ease by announcing the IdeaPad S12 - a Nvidia ION-based netbook with a 12.1-inch LED display and full-sized keyboard.  Read More

AT&T subsidized netbooks available across the U.S. this summer

Over at The Mobiler, we've recently looked at Lenovo's NVIDIA ION-based IdeaPad S12 netbook, Microsoft clarifying its Windows Marketplace app sharing policy, the Android Cupcake OS 1.5 being released for US T-Mobile G1s, leaked details of Nokia's N900 Maemo tablet, Virgin Mobile offering Wi-Fi on every flight, and AT&T's subsidized netbook program going US-wide this summer.  Read More

Pocket Yoga in tablet mode

Lenovo has posted a number of images of a new netbook they call Pocket Yoga on their photo feed, sans press release, tech specs, or...anything. What we can tell you is that it's a tiny, leather-bound touchscreen PC with an odd, ultra-wide aspect ratio that can be folded over to create a tablet. And it might just fit in your pocket.  Read More

No need to dust the office ever again

With the number of ruggedized computers hitting the market you’d think that people are running around treating their laptops like last night’s leftovers. Of course that’s not the case, most people use their laptops in pretty clean, stable environments and won’t ever need the rough and ready specs of a ruggedized laptop, but there is a section of the workforce that does. Particularly in the areas of public safety, utilities, construction and the military, and it’s these markets that Lenovo have in mind with their range of eight ThinkPad laptops designated for use in field and vehicle semi-ruggedized computing environments.  Read More

ThinkPad W700ds with secondary screen enabled.

Lenovo's W700ds has an ingeniously concealed second screen built into the lid that "pops out" via a spring loaded mechanism. There's also a laundry list of features including a built in webcam, fingerprint scanner, 5 USB ports, a FireWire port, a DisplayLink port, both VGA and DVI graphics, big bright 17" 1920x1200 display, 2 ExpressCard slots, an SD card reader, and couple of features that are rather specific to high end photography and graphics design. Gizmag's Dave Weinstein has been putting the W700ds to the test, read on for his full report.  Read More

Windows 7

So you want to install the Windows 7 beta on your IdeaPad S10, or another netbook without an optical drive. A Google search will turn up hundreds of guides, but we've read nearly all of them, and they either assume you have access to a Windows Vista machine, are needlessly complicated, or just plain don't work. This guide might not have pretty pictures guiding you along the way, and you'll need to deal with a command prompt, but hey - it works.  Read More
