Just about a year ago we took a look at Lenovo’s Y570 15.6-inch laptop and today we have its successor the Y580. Designed to be an all-around system or even a desktop replacement that can handle HD video, gaming, and other intensive tasks the Y580 features NVIDIA GTX660M graphics, an mSATA solid state drive for fast boot times and application load times, a very fast Intel Core i7-3610QM processor, 8GB of DDR3 and USB 3.0 support. For those who hate the typical dull speakers on laptops Lenovo has outfitted the Y580 with premium JBL speakers with support for Dolby Home Theater v4. Finally just for looks Lenovo has added a backlit keyboard that not only looks cool, but allows you to work at night with ease. Starting at just $849 the Y580 is still very affordable. Is this the laptop for you? Read on as we put it to the test!
Workstations and business related products are not normally what we cover here at ThinkComputers. We are more consumer and enthusiast based, but our friends at Lenovo asked us if we would take a look at their latest workstation system the ThinkStation S30. We decided why not since we never cover things like this and who knows many some of you reading this review might pick up a few of these for your office. The ThinkStation S30 we are taking a look at today features an Intel Xeon E5-1620 Sandy Bridge processor, NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics, 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and two Seagate 500GB 7200 RPM drives in a RAID 0 setup. Let’s see what the S30 is all about!
The two big names in the tablet game are Samsung and Apple, but Lenovo does have quite a few notable tablets on their hands. One of their latest, the IdeaTab A2109 has just showed up on Best Buy’s website for $299. Why is this news? Well for those looking for a low-cost tablet this is going to be another great choice besides Google’s Nexus 7, as it features the same NVIDIA Tegra 3 (1.2GHz) chip as the Nexus 7, but offers a larger 9-inch screen over the 7-inch screen of the Nexus.
When you are mainly a desktop user and are used to your home setup it is very uncomfortable and hard to get adjusted to a different system or a laptop. This happens to me all the time when I am traveling, especially because my home system is setup with dual displays. Laptops only have 1 screen, but what if I was to tell you that Lenovo has a light in thin portable travel monitor that you can plug into a laptop or PC that has a USB connection? The monitor I am talking about is the ThinkVision LT1421. Read on as we check it out!
If you are a desktop user and use multiple screens going back to a single screen can take some adjustment and also results in less productivity. I always have to adjust to a single screen when I am traveling or if I’m out for the day. You do not realize the importance of multiple displays until you are limited to using a single display. Lenovo knows how many people rely of multiple display setups and has a perfect little monitor that you can easily team with your laptop. It is their ThinkVision Portable USB Monitor.
