Complimenting the shots found online last week of the “Pocket Yoga” by Lenovo, an as of yet unannoucned product, more photos have crept their way onto Flickr showing what appears to be a touchscreen “laptop” with an insanely wide screen ratio.  How practical will it be for scrolling vertically for long documents?  Who knows, but it sure does look cool!  Nothing else is currently known about this mystery device from Lenovo.  Come inside for a few more pictures of the Pocket Yoga posing for the camera.

On top of the all-in-one computer I mentioned earlier, Lenovo is releasing 3 new Y series notebooks.  Designed around HD multimedia, the 14″ Y450, 15″ Y550, and 16″ Y650 will all have 16:9 glossy displays and Nvidia GFX graphics to showcase movies in widescreen format and to allow colors to pop off the screen all without breaking a sweat.  A multi-touch trackpad, up to 500GB hard drive, and up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM round out a rather appealing set of notebooks.  The design of the notebooks is equally impressive.  A soft black lid with a hexagonal pattern, along with a “rusty oragne” colored accent give the notebook series some visual appeal.  Read More… »

Lenovo IdeaCentre 600: An iMac from the Imperial side?

At first glance the Lenovo IdeaCentre 600 looks (in my opinion) just about as good as a standard iMac.  It is sleek and shiny with a distinctive curve to the frame that gives it a sort of modern elegance.  Obviously, this is Lenovo’s response to other contenders in the all-in-one market such as Apple’s iMac, Sony’s Vaio LV , and Dell XPS One.  The looks of the IdeaCentre immediately grab you, unfortunately, if you’re looking to use this as a complete replacement for a computer and Hi-Def TV, you might want to look elsewhere as there is not a single HDMI port on this thing.  Also The 21.5″ screen could be a little bigger, but that is just a small gripe.  While it is more affordable than some of the other players mentioned above, prices rise sharply if you get too click happy with the options boxes.  Full Specs after the click.

  • Optional Blue-Ray player
