Lenovo’s Y-Series of laptops are meant to be desktop replacements that can handle HD video playback, intense gaming, video editing, and much more. The Y570 has actually been out for some time, but Lenovo has upgraded it with Intel’s second generation Core processors, USB 3.0, dedicated GeForce 550M graphics, JBL speakers with SRS surround sound and an optional Blu-ray drive. We will be putting this newer Y570 through the paces to see how it performs as a desktop replacement, gaming machine and much more. Read on to see how it performs!
It is not often that I look at a laptop and say wow that looks beautiful and then pick it up and fall in love with it even more. I think the only time that has really happened was with a Macbook Air, but I’m not even a Mac user. Lenovo is not a company you really think of when it comes to beautifully designed laptops, they make great laptops no doubt, but most of them are not that eye catching. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5-inch laptop, which is one of sleekest laptops I’ve ever seen and comes packed with an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of memory. Is the U260 all looks or will it really perform?
A few months ago we took a look at Lenovo’s ThinkPad Edge 13-inch notebook and we absolutely loved it. It was a great blend of consumer and business features not to mention it looked great. The 13-inch form factor is perfect for some people, but many people want a larger laptop with more power and of course a larger screen to work with. Knowing this Lenovo has released 2 more models to its ThinkPad Edge series, a 14-inch and a 15-inch. Both models feature the new Intel Core i3 processor, DDR3 memory, HD graphics and of course all of the extra features you would expect from a ThinkPad. Today we will be taking a look at the 15-inch model.
When you think of ThinkPad’s you think of business notebooks and they really are. I’ve reviewed quite a few ThinkPad’s over the past few years and the features are unrivaled when it comes to other notebooks. But the thing about the ThinkPad’s is that they don’t appeal to many people, even small business users. Lenovo noticed this and came out with the ThinkPad Edge. The Edge is a very attractive 13-inch notebook that provides the right amount of business and consumer features. The Edge is also one of the first ThinkPad’s that has an AMD processor option. Let’s see if the ThinkPad Edge is the perfect new laptop for you!
Most notebook cooling pads are the same, a simple design that lifts your notebook of the ground and a fan in the middle to cool things down a bit. Well today we have a notebook that not only does that but adds a ton of features like a set of touch-sensitive media keys, temperature and fan speed display, and a 3 port USB hub. Let’s see if this cooler with all its bells and whistles can actually cool our notebook as well.
Notebook Coolers, it seems like everyone is making them and Thermaltake is no different. They have quite a few different notebook coolers and they have extended their Xaser branding to the notebook cooler market. The Xaser S1000 is an aluminum cooler made for 12-inch to 15-inch notebook and has 2 70mm fans to keep your notebook cool. Let’s take a look a see if the S1000 lives up to the Xaser name.
We have taken a look at a lot of notebook coolers here and most of them are pretty much the same. A small elevated surface with a fan in the center to help cool your notebook. Hiyatek’s new notebook cooler is that at first glance, but upon further inspection it is also notebook stand that features a 4-port USB hub. Let’s check it out and see if it is the perfect combo for you.
There are bags made especially for notebooks and ones made especially for cameras, but not many companies are making bags for both. Luckily Lowepro is one of those companies. They have been making quality bags for photographers for years and recently they have introduced notebook / camera combo bags. Let’s take a look at one of their newest offerings the Classified 250AW and see if it makes it through our recent trip to CES in Las Vegas.
For most people tablets are something they hate or love. They really have not caught on as many tablet manufacturers and Microsoft thought they would. Although people who do use tablet’s love them and wouldn’t know what to do without them. Today we will be looking at Lenovo’s latest tablet, the ThinkPad 12.1-inch X200. The X200 tablet features a 1.86 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of memory, a solid design and all the features you would expect from a ThinkPad. Let’s take a look and see if the X200 tablet is the right tablet for you.
Subnotebooks or netbooks are becoming extremely popular. It seems like everyone is coming out with some type of netbook.
