Lenovo Business Products

We just attended Lenovo's Accelerate conference on April 29-May 1 and had a chance to see and touch their newest products.  

We were definitely impressed with their touch screen technology, like the ThinkPad Tablet 2, their Helix which is a hybrid laptop and ThinkPad, and the Carbon X1 Touch, the lightest and fastest Ultrabook available.  

I do have an Ipad, and while I love it for websurfing, email, etc., I find that I cannot really create much with it.  

The ThinkPad Tablet 2 was designed for doers - those who create, decipher, report, define and dream.  I think the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is the tablet of choice for business applications.  And - you can have fun on them too!

Lenovo Thinkstation D30 wins 
PC Magazine's Editors Choice

Lenovo is becoming the big name in computers and laptops.  

Lenovo is the not so well known name for the very well known IBM "Thinkpad" Technology.  Of course, being recognized in a industry that is already full of MAC, HP and Dell to name a few, is NOT an easy thing. 

I think they are finally gaining momentum, which is great since they are making such great products.  We have purchased a couple of Lenovo Towers and a couple of Lenovo Laptops ourselves and we LOVE them!  Now, I am actually seeing Lenovo laptops in the hands of even picky computer buyers.  

Now, it looks like PC Magazine is giving them some nice recognition.  In particular, Lenovo is winning kudos for their dual eight-core Xeon CPUs.  Plus the Thinkstation D30 has the ability to add on more powerful NVIDIA Quadro cards.  

Lenovo's last dual-processor workstation Editors' Choice was the Lenovo ThinkStation C20, which also featured the amazing Xeon CPUs. 

The Lenovo ThinkStation D30 is now the new "King of the Hill", as the dual-processor workstation Editors' Choice. 

Per PC Magazine:  "It wins with power, expandability, and a ruthless devotion to get your project done before any of your rivals can. "  

Congratulations Lenovo!  

What's more is that Lenovo is celebrating with two great rebate offers on their Top Seller Models:
