Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga: Finally A Convertible With Some Grit

Out of last year’s selection of fledgling Windows 8 convertibles, Lenovo’s Yoga was our favourite by far. Now we’re getting one with some ruggedness to it. You know, a little bit of raw strength. Meet the Thinkpad Yoga.

Meet The Next Wave Of Convertible Ultrabooks

An exciting new wave of convertible ultrabooks broke cover at Computex Taipei, many packing Intel’s new speedy and efficient Haswell processors. From Sony’s latest 13-inch slider to a new Asus Transformer running both Windows 8 and Android – there’s lots to see.

Computex Taipei 2013 Preview: New Tablets, Laptops, Processors And More

The next generation of hybrid tablets and laptops is just around the corner. Luke and I, from Gizmodo AU, head to Taiwan next week for Computex — Asia’s largest computer expo (and the second biggest in the world after CeBIT). Last year, 130,000 visitors saw 1700 companies showcase their latest, led by Taiwanese brands like Acer, Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, Thermaltake, Antec and Nvidia. Intel and AMD will also be there, of course, along with stacks of great new tech. Here’s a preview of what we’re expecting to see…

Lenovo ThinkPads Get Thinner, Prettier

The ThinkPad T series isn’t traditionally the prettiest out there, and it’s certainly not one you’d usually see highlighted. But Lenovo went and made them pretty. It’s got a new thinner body (20.6mm), a thin bezel, and a carbon fibre top with a magnesium exterior. It doesn’t look quite as great as the X1 Carbon, but it’s nice just the same.

Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 Review: Just Barely A Laptop

Lenovo probably did Windows 8 the best of anyone so far with the bendy, twisty Yoga. Now it’s got the Thinkpad Tablet 2 and keyboard combo. If the Lenovo Yoga is a laptop that’s sort of a tablet, this is the tablet that’s sort of a laptop.

The Five Best Phones Of CES 2013

Compared to years past, CES 2013 was pretty light on phones. The focus was more on health/fitness gadgets and 4K UHD TVs. But among the few phones at the show, we some good ones. Here are the top five.

Lenovo's Yoga 11 Is Now A Real Ultrabook

We like Lenovo’s Yoga a lot, but until now, the 11-inch version was stuck with Windows RT, instead of full Windows 8. That’s fine, more or less, but everyone who wanted the total package at 11-inches was pretty let down. Now, though, the 11-inch is getting the full Intel i-Series treatment.

Lenovo K900 Hands-On: This Tall, Skinny Hottie Needs To Get In My Pants

The Lenovo K900 is a big phone, yes, but it’s a design-y big phone. It’s handsome, skinny, and slick like the finest smartphones ever made. We never thought we would be into a 5.5-inch phone until the K900′s brushed metal back landed in our hands.

A Desktop PC That Turns Into A Gigantic 27-inch Tablet

This is at once pretty cool and also very, really, incredibly silly and dumb. But that’s not a bad thing! Here’s Lenovo’s Horizon desktop computer. It’s half Minority Report, half newjack board game. Oh, and also a full Windows 8 all-in-one computer.
