Lenovo has unveiled a trio of notebooks aimed at the budget end of the computer market, ahead of the manufacturer's Lenovo Tech World global technology conference in Beijing. The Ideapad 100 is a basic 1366x768-resolution notebook that takes after Chromebooks, while the Lenovo Z41 and Z51 are slightly more expensive notebooks with 14-inch and 15-inch, 1080p-resolution displays that offer a bit more power than the Ideapad.
Lenovo has launched three tablets at Mobile World Congress. The Tab 2 A10-70 and Tab 2 A8 are Android tablets with 10.1-inch and 8-inch screens respectively, with both boasting Dolby Atmos surround sound audio processing, while the Ideapad Miix 300 is an 8-inch slate that will ship with Windows 8.1 and a one-year subscription to Office 365.
Lenovo today announced several new touch-enabled Windows laptops, along with Lenovo Miix, a a 10.1-inch tablet that sports a “quick-flip” detachable folio case with an integrated AccuType keyboard that converts instantly into a full Windows 8 laptop. Also released today, the IdeaPad S400 Touch, S500 Touch, S210 Touch, U330 Touch and U430 Touch all hail from the company’s thin and lightweight S Series and U Series.
Lenovo has taken the wraps off of a new family of four convertible devices designed for Windows 8 or RT. For consumers, the touch-optimized family includes the IdeaPad Yoga 13, Yoga 11, and IdeaTab Lynx. For professionals, the business-friendly ThinkPad Twist was unveiled utilizing the full Windows 8 package.
Earlier this week, Lenovo unveiled new entries in its S Series line of laptops, the IdeaPad S300, S400, and S405. The new laptops each measure less than an inch thick and weigh less than four four pounds. The S Series entries bear a metallic finish and contain either Ivy Bridge processors from Intel or AMD A-Series processors. The new models come with up to a 14-inch HD widescreen display, HDMI output, stereo speakers, and Dolby Advanced Audio v2 certification.
The Lenovo IdeaTab A2109 has landed at Best Buy priced agressively at $300. Lenovo has priced the tablet at $350 on its website, but the lower price point at Best Buy pushes into the sphere of consideration for buyers thinking about purchasing the Nexus 7. It is powered by the same Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GH, but also offers a larger 9.7-inch IPS display with a 1024x800 resolution.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 has gone on sale though the company's website. The 15.6-inch notebook was last seen at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, and retains the Kepler-based NVIDIA graphics and Intel Ivy Bridge-based processor that were promised in the original announcement.
Lenovo has announced that its IdeaPad U310 and U410 ultrabooks are now shipping in most markets. The previously announced notebooks are available in a range of configurations, including a choice of Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors that take advantage of Lenovo's RapidBoot technology and Ultra Smart social network updates in sleep mode.
A newly spotted partner listing (PDF) from Lenovo has shown off some upcoming models from the computer-maker. It includes new ThinkPad and IdeaPad models that weren't leaked earlier, including the ThinkPad T430s. This should be a replacement for the T420s and be a thin and light 14-inch notebook that doesn't quite meet the ultrabook criteria, unlike the T430u.
A Lenovo reseller channel update (PDF has inadvertently revealed the company's plans to ship systems based on Intel's Ivy Bridge platform in June. Systems based on Chief River, the mainboard chipset plaform for Ivy Bridge processors, will be on sale for resellers on June 5. These stores won't get their units until September, but it's possible that Lenovo itself will ship PCs to end users sooner.
