Our first look at two unique Lenovo PCs

Lenovo brought two last devices out for CES that Electronista had the opportunity to see first-hand.

Analysts predict Lenovo to overtake Apple in all-in-one PCs

12/08, 7:50am

Digitimes thinks iMac too conservative

A new prediction from Digitimes Research has made the claim that Apple will cede the top spot in all-in-one desktops to Lenovo in 2012. The iMac would drop from an estimated 30 percent of the field in 2011 to 24.1 percent in 2012, just being overtaken as Lenovo hit 25 percent. The Taiwan firm editorialized and claimed that Apple only had "limited room" for hardware variety while Lenovo had more choices and prices, particularly for its home country of China.


Lenovo claims IdeaCentre Q180 'world's smallest desktop PC'

11/22, 2:55pm

Lenovo unveils tiny IdeaCentre Q180 nettop

Lenovo staked out an aggressive claim Tuesday by launching the IdeaCentre Q180. The nettop is billed as the "world's smallest desktop PC" and, Lenovo says, has the footprint of a paperback. It gets to that claim by becoming one of the first mainstream nettops to use Intel's new Cedar Trail-based Atom processors, picking the dual-core 2.13GHz Atom D2700 to use just 10W of power.

04/14, 10:55pm

Lenovo said planning smart TV entry

Lenovo may be entering the TV market with an Internet-aware model of its own. Sources claimed late Thursday that the company wanted into the smart TV field and would wield its existing PC assembly relationships with Taiwan's Compal and Wistron, among others, to get them made. Orders would be "released" in the second half of 2011, Digitimes said, presumably referring to when they would ship.


Lenovo challenging Apple in all-in-one PCs

02/21, 7:25am

Lenovo counting on China to overtake Apple in AIOs

Lenovo is growing quickly enough to be a challenger to Apple's long-held dominance in all-in-one computers, a mixture of unofficial sources and estimates claimed on Monday. The iMac represented 30 percent of AIO market share in all 2010, but Lenovo's 23 percent growth in desktop sales during the fall has been attributed to a "significant" bump from its IdeaCentre AIO models. The growth would be just the start, as Digitimes Research estimated that Lenovo's shipments would surge 54 percent just in 2011 to hit two million PCs based on sales in its native China.

08/18, 3:40pm

Lenovo this afternoon put an end to speculation and launched its IdeaCentre Q series of mini desktops as well as its first Windows Home Server.

Its other specs aren't known but involve HD video output and should be based on an Intel Atom chip at its $349 price.
