Lenovo announces ThinkVision LT1423p Touch Mobile Monitor

Today at CES, Lenovo announced its new Lenovo ThinkVision LT1423p Touch Mobile Monitor, a 13.3-inch 1600 x 900 mobile touchscreen that comes either wired or wireless. Thanks to 10-point multi-touch capacity, tough Gorilla Glass, and an impressive wireless range, the Lenovo LT1423 touch monitor carries the potential to wear many hats.

Wired via a USB 3.0 connection and used as a dual-screen monitor, the Lenovo LT1423p ups productivity and provides touch sensitivity – an especially useful bonus for providing the full Windows 8 experience on an otherwise non-touch computer. Shifted beside the mousepad, it can also serve as an oversized, highly sensitive drawing tablet. The LT1423p comes with a pressure-sensitive digital pen with 256 pressure levels that enable precision writing and drawing.

The wireless version allows the Lenovo LT1423p to be used anywhere in the same room as the original PC. Transmitting data via WiFi, the wireless monitor enables more imaginative applications. With a broad viewing angle, a slim profile (1.6 pounds. and 0.3­ to 0.6 inches thick), and an anti-reflective LED surface, the touch monitor lends itself easily to collaborative use. It can transform into a fully visualized control pad for a multi-media presentation, or enable business partners to work on the same spreadsheet, even if they are not sitting side-by-side (on a WiFi-enabled plane, for instance). The Lenovo LT1423p boasts up to four hours of battery life and starts at $349.

Stay tuned for a hands-on review.

Lenovo's ThinkPad P-Series mobile workstations pack Ultra HD, Quadro options

During the Solidworks World 2017 conference focusing on 3D CAD applications, Lenovo introduced three new mobile workstations sporting the latest processor from Intel for professionals. They fall under the company’s ThinkPad P-series family of devices packed with optional Nvidia Quadro graphics, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and Ultra HD resolutions.
Lenovo ThinkPad P71 Mobile Workstation
Pictured above, this is the meatiest model of the trio and officially deemed as virtual reality ready. That is because customers have the option of choosing Nvidia’s Pascal-based Quadro P5000M discrete graphics chip for mobile workstations. It consists of 2,048 CUDA cores clocked at 1,513MHz, and a 256-bit memory interface supporting 16GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory.

Other notable features in Lenovo’s new workstation include support for up to 64GB of system memory and four internal storage options consisting of two hard drive connections and two PCIe SSD slots. There are plenty of ports for connecting VR headgear too such as four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and loads more. Customers not wanting Windows installed on this system have options for Ubuntu Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well.

Lenovo says goodbye to bezels with its ThinkVision X24 monitor
Lenovo ThinkVision X24

Though both Asus and Acer have already released their own monitors which chuck out the chunky black bezel in favor of more screen room, both still sport around half an inch of empty space between the screen and the backdrop of your choosing.

With the Lenovo ThinkVision X24 the split between your content and the rest of the world has been shaved even further, with mere millimeters separating the screen from the stand that keeps it upright.

Hands-on with the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

Check out our review of the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix convertible.
Lenovo's new ThinkPad Helix stands out immediately from the current crowd of convertibles. Nearly all of them are targeted at consumers and, as such, focus more on flashy design than durability. Not the Helix. It's a ThinkPad, and that means tough.
All the classic features are here. Most surfaces are matte black and the lid uses a semi-soft coat that's not initially pleasing to the eye but resists scratches better than the glossy coat used on consumer systems.

Lenovo has also made sure to include the trackpointer, though there's been a change to the buttons - they're now integrated into the surface. This change lets the Helix offer a large touchpad in spite of its diminutive 11.6-inch display.
The Helix's ace is its unique hardware. It packs a Core i5 low-voltage processor, yet all of that compute power is kept behind the screen. This means there's no interruption or reduction in performance when using the Helix as a tablet.
And that's not all. Users can flip the display and re-attach it so that it faces up when closed over the keyboard. By doing this a user can enjoy the system as a tablet without giving up the ports and extra battery life found in the keyboard base.
All of this does come at a price. Lenovo will ship the Helix in February at $1,499. That's more than most consumers will pay for an 11.6-inch laptop and, frankly, the IdeaPad Yoga 11S will prove a better choice for home users. The Helix is aimed at business travelers - and it may well be the perfect convertible for them.
