Lenovo rumored to make thinner-than-MacBook Air TP ultrabook

So after looking at the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro's 3200×1800 display, it seems the ThinkPad line will have one as well. The Verge and Trusted Reviews both report Chinese website Yesky's article about a rumored superthin ThinkPad that uses the same carbon fiber chassis as the X1 Carbon, tentatively named t...

Re: Five New ThinkPads from IFA in Berlin

Windows 8.1 does not include a "Start Menu" or an "All Programs" function.

Five New ThinkPads from IFA in Berlin

Engadget and others reported on the T440s, T440, X240, S440, and the S540. It's the last that interests me the most, because finally Lenovo has a ThinkPad with Radeon graphics, 1080p display, and numeric keypad as an optional upgrade on-order. http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/03/lenovo-thinkpad-t440s...

Re: Miix8 - Lenovo 8" Windows 8 tablet

Meantime it's big brother the Miix 10 has already been announced, and it's already being called a watered-down ThinkPad Tablet 2 and such. I wonder if it will have the same WXGA res.

Re: ThinkPad X1 Helix (11.6" FHD IPS)

Hello, long-time lurker, first-time poster and new Edge E130 user (office-issued, not personally owned), but after weeks of no news about the Helix CNET's Chinese website has a recent article, so it seems this will be one step closer to release.
