Lenovo laptops pass military tests for rugged environments

Posted in Lenovo by Shane McGlaun on February 25th, 2009

Lenovo X200 TabletThere are many environments where a computer is needed where the conditions are too harsh for the average notebook to survive and operate. In these environment users have to resort to semi-rugged or full rugged computers.

Lenovo has announced that it has certified several of its standard laptop computers including the ThinkPad X200, X301, X200s, X200 Tablet, T400, T500, R400, and SL300 models to meet military semi-rugged specifications. The computer maker also announced a new optional high brightness LCD with 680-nits for daylight use on these systems.

New Lenovo ad for the W700ds

Posted in Lenovo by Conner Flynn on January 22nd, 2009


Some of you might consider this NSFW, even though it isn’t really. There’s no nudity. Here’s the synopsis: Some creepy guy at the office is telling a story about the office hottie and his Lenovo W700ds. He starts bragging about one of it’s features. Next thing you know they’re playing strip poker. In this case, she strips everytime the w700ds beats her laptop. Then it’s time to brag about his second screen and she strips all the way. It all ends with a joke about how big it is and a “That’s what she said” joke.

CNET thinks this came from inside Lenovo, but who knows. It’s stupid yes, and dorky. But also genius as marketing. Sadly in the real world, women aren’t that impressed with laptop specs. Unless I’ve been hanfing with the wrong women.

Lenovo K SeriesFor a long time Lenovo only went after the business notebook and desktop market in America. The computer maker offered some consumer focused systems in its native China though.

Lenovo has announced its new K series desktop computer line. The IdeaCenter K220 is one of the new systems and offers Lenovo’s VeriFace security that allows users to login by facial recognition.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A600 All-In-One PC with Motion RemoteThe IdeaCentre might steal the show at CES 2009 for Lenovo. It’s a thin all-in one PC with an interesting design that has most of the components in the bottom of the computer.

Lenovo W700ds shows off on filmIt seems like it has been official ever since we first started slobbering all over it’s dual-screen goodness. Even with it’s first video appearance, it already seemed official. Then it really started showing off. They’re so cute at this age. Anyhow, the beast with two screens is now officially official.

At last it is confirmed by Lenovo, offering great performance, with a 17-inch primary display and a 10-inch slide-out panel. Details about exact configurations are sparse, but apparently buyers will be able to outfit them with high-end Intel CPUs, optional RAID HDD / SSD setups, NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, dual-link DVI / Display Port / VGA support, a 7-in-1 card reader, five USB ports, WiFi, optional WiMAX, a smartcard reader and a dual thermal solution to keep things cool.

Lenovo Y550 NotebookCES always involves a glut of new laptops, netbooks, and desktop computers being shown off and introduced. The machines introduced usually run the gamut from thin and light machines to gaming behemoths with a price tag that sounds more like the price of a car than a computer.

Lenovo has already announced four new computers that we will see this week at CES. The new machines include one of the thinnest 16-inch laptops around called the Y650, a 15-inch notebook called the Y550 and a 14-inch Y440 notebook.

Lenovo W700ds shows off on film

Lenovo W700ds shows off on filmLenovo’s ThinkPad W700ds is pretty damn intriguing. We want one. Sadly every gadget under our tree had just a single screen. So we were happy to learn that GottaBeMobile got their gadget-loving hands on one. They were nice enough to share their knowledge of the twin screened beast.

The model they have features a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and NVIDIA Quadro FX3700M graphics. The primary display is a 17-inch WUXGA with a 1920 x 1200, while the secondary panel is a 10.6-inch WXGA with 768 x 1200 resolution. It still looks pretty awesome to us. You can check out the video below.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad W700ds on video

Posted in Lenovo by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2008


Dual screens on a laptop. Oh yes. We’ve been drooling over Lenovo’s W700ds, and now we have the laptop’s first widely available video. The unit in the video appears to be that of a pre-production model.

Another thing that you might have noticed is the wobble in that pull-out panel. Yikes, that thing looks fragile. It looks like it didn’t go back in too easy either. But we’re hoping Lenovo works out all it’s issues before it hits the market for real. I have no doubt that they will as they have a lot riding on this unit.

Lenovo notebooks shutdown via text message

Posted in Lenovo by Shane McGlaun on November 26th, 2008

Lenovo LogoLast year when I was going to CES, I almost lost my laptop. The person working the x-ray machine removed it from my bag when I forgot too, but then didn’t tell me they had done it. I got all the way to my gate and realized it was gone. I was able to get it, but hundreds of thousands of notebooks each year aren’t retrieved when lost at airports.

If you have important data on your computer that you don’t want falling into the wrong hands, or simply don’t want some airport worker using your computer, Lenovo has a new service for you. The service is called Lenovo Constant Secure Remote Disable Feature and allows certain notebooks to be shutdown over a WWAN connection.

Lenovo launches unique USB drive with encryption

Posted in Lenovo by Shane McGlaun on November 14th, 2008

Lenovo ThinkPad USB Portable Secure Hard DriveWhen it comes to storing and backing up data on the road a USB hard drive is often the best route to go. The catch is that sensitive data can be easily lost while traveling and if the data you save on the external drive isn’t encrypted anyone who finds it can access your data.

Lenovo has announced a new external hard drive called the ThinkPad USB Portable Secure Hard Drive that is available in 160GB or 320GB capacities. Both of the drives are the same size and are approximately 3″ x 5″ and small enough to fit into a shirt pocket.

PolyFuel Lenovo T40 laptop prototype

PolyFuel Lenovo T40 laptop prototype
When you talk fuel cell technology, you generally think cars. Well, fuel cell technology could end up under the hood of your laptop in just a few short years. Maybe sooner.

A company based in California named PolyFuel has been working on an interesting prototype that converts methanol fuel to electricity to power a laptop. The Lenovo T40 ThinkPad is being used as PolyFuel’s prototype. The fuel cell is about the size of a standard deck of cards. Running at full capacity, it will supposedly have 10 times the power of similar Lithium Ion batteries. That translates to three times the battery life, which is about 10 hours. Refillable cartridges can be carried and switched on the go, making it super easy and convenient.
