Lenovo ThinkPad Twist S230U

 

This laptop twists into a tablet and offers specs that would put many Ultrabooks to shame.

Flexible specs with up to Core i7 and 8GB RAM ; Excellent connectivity including optional 3G ; Superb typing experience ; Tried and proven swivel form factor ; High quality IPS screen

Build quality not up to usual ThinkPad standard ; Poor battery life ; Bog-standard screen res ; No optional digitizer stylus

), and Lenovo’s custom security and maintenance suite. Other bits include a single webcam capable of 720p video which is decent enough for video chatting, along with a dual-array mic.

Lenovo ThinkPad T431 review

 

A new ThinkPad from Lenovo with boldly stripped down look

Another great ThinkPad keyboard ; Sleek new face ; Simple touchpad design ; Durable ; Good old TrackPoint mouse

Not so light for an ultrabook ; No touch screen option ; ThinkPad die hards may balk at new mouse design

While the ThinkPad has long been a go to brand for the IT professionals who choose the machines their co-workers will be carrying, this design refresh seems oriented toward getting the average user to turn his head.

Lenovo X1 Carbon video demo

 

A skinny stunner in a business suit

Lenovo's revised Thinkpad X1 might simply have the Carbon moniker attached to it but we were left in no doubt that it gives the Macbook Air a run for its money.

Lenovo Thinkpad T43 Laptop

 

For those of you who are as paranoid as I am about protecting the contents of your laptop, a portable with a biometric fingerprint reader offers security as well as geek appeal. IBM's latest incarnation of its T line of thin-and-light laptops...

Superb battery life

Difficult to upgrade RAM

The T43 performed as expected for a 1.86-GHz Pentium M 750, earning a WorldBench 5 score of 84--not at the top of the numbers chart but a good result nonetheless

Lenovo X1 Carbon Review (2014)

 

The Lenovo X1 Carbon 2014 follows the step of the previous X1 Carbon (2012) and the original Thinkpad X1. It is thinner, gets much better battery life and incorporates a high-DPI display. Its Carbon construction allows it to be the only 14” laptop that...

Portable One MX vs. IBM ThinkPad T43 Review (pics, specs)

 

This review will highlight my personal opinions on both the IBM ThinkPad T43 and Portable One MX laptops and I will compare the two on a variety of categories, as I'm sure the prospective T43 / MX buyer will be cross-shopping the two. I'll also attempt...

I would definitely explore future Portable One product offerings, as they also have a X series competitor in their UX laptop. In the future, if they were to come out with a widescreen glossy screen, and perhaps upgrade their keyboard, I would certainly...
