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...

IBM T43 is just better in functionality and usability (keyboard, touchpad) and even in price (even without EPP, as T series starts at $1300). There is no compelling reason for me to keep the MX over the T43. Like I've repeatedly said, I absolutely need...

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 ThinkPad Twist First Impressions


The ThinkPad Twist is Lenovo's newest ThinkPad in ultrabook form and it dons Windows 8: its touchscreen swivels to one side and can be turned to face the person in front of you. (A slightly different range of twisting is possible with the Twist's...

Lenovo ThinkPad W


The Lenovo ThinkPad W series of powerful business laptops pack quite a punch. Get the details in our review.

The processor and graphics card on the Lenovo ThinkPad W530 are outstanding

This business laptop lacks an HDMI port and is a little bulky

The powerful processor and graphics card are weighed down a bit by the size of the device, but the Lenovo W Series business laptop is still an excellent choice.

Lenovo ThinkPad X


The Lenovo ThinkPad X230 has great battery life and a powerful processor. Find out more in our review.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X230 is extremely light and has fantastic battery life

This business laptop does not come with an optical drive

While it's easily portable and long lasting, this business laptop is tough to recommend due to its lack of connectivity options.

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 Hybrid ThinkPad review: Hands-on


Lenovo's doubles that battery life of its original X1 with a new Instant Media Mode that brings a Linux-based interface, it's own dual-core processor and storage

The Hybrid edition of the X1 is an interesting move from Lenovo in a world where both power and battery life are becoming increasingly important in the face of competition from the Ultrabook and MacBook Air families.
