ThinkPad Backpack on the snow

ThinkPad Backpack on the snow

CES--the world’s largest electronics conference--is behind us. Those who were there saw all the new ThinkPads, tablets and cell phones along with our new lines of carrying cases. After many years of having the same ThinkPad branded cases, it is a time for a change. Designing new case is not easy. Whether you like backpack or other silhouette of the case your choice is often very personal. Besides function, durability and protection a bag must express your personality. I spent last month traveling. It was the perfect time to test some prototypes. I first tested our new Active line, which will be joining our portfolio in April. The 30-liter backpack is big enough to accommodate a ThinkPad laptop (I use T Series) and Tablet 2 along with all the necessary stuff.  But it has a lot of space for spare clothes and snacks if you go skiing with your family! After Christmas we had a big job to do at the CES show in Las Vegas. And you know when you travel, a backpack is great as you do not need to carry the weight in your hand. After CES it was time to take a short break and do some hiking in Zion National Park – another great opportunity to test a bag. I packed it with my camera, a second lens, clothes (it was really cold there) and water with snacks for a half-day trip. Red goes well with red jacket and red colors of Antelope Canyon. You would not even say I have this backpack on by back. This is me. No matter which ThinkPad bag you...

After two weeks on the road, exhibiting at PLM World in Dallas, TX and then PTC Live in Anaheim, CA, our staff and workstations have all made it back to their respective homes. Both of the events proved to be an excellent opportunity for connecting with prospects in a variety of industries. We showed off the latest and greatest in the world of Lenovo ThinkStation workstations, displaying the full product family while highlighting the ThinkStation S30 and ThinkVision 30” monitor. These products especially impressed users with their performance and clarity with CAD applications. Thanks to a well branded tradeshow booth and a high level of visibility through our show sponsorships, Lenovo further solidified our strong presence in the Manufacturing and AEC markets.   Booth traffic was steady each day. Several visitors stopped by with follow up questions and comments after the “Tips and Tricks for Selecting the Right Workstation” session presented by Tom Salomone, ThinkStation Vertical Marketing Manager.  At no surprise to the team, the remote workstation demo was a hit with attendees, even garnering attention from multiple media groups. The demo, using a ThinkStation D30 and ThinkPad Tablet 2 showcased virtual use of Simens NX and PTC Creo applications (at the respective events). Our team received positive feedback on the demo, specifically related to the favorable feedback time and ease of use. Naturally, no show is complete without...

A year ago I wrote a blog post about how difficult it is to make the ThinkPad keyboard wireless. After a year and a few days I’m glad to report that we made it! We already announced the ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard at CES 2013 with great success. So what can you expect? This is a great keyboard that matches the look and feel of the T430u keyboard. It is full size, but still very compact. Most of the people who see the keyboard for the first time have the impression that the keyboard is smaller than the one on our ThinkPad and try to put it on their ThinkPad to compare – this is too funny! They are the same size. The keyboard comes in two versions – USB and Bluetooth. We have overcome all battery issues in order to keep the traditional Trackpoint without a drain on the battery. So you can enjoy the traditional red rubber Trackpoint! I personally feel like it is best keyboard to be used with docked notebooks and tablets. Compared to some keyboards out there, this one has the pointing device to operate in Windows in compact form and shape - so important in these days. And if you are using the All-In-One or Tiny, this is the ideal choice. I mean, the compact keyboard fits space saving computers perfectly. Particularly when some All-In-One computers have an optional Bluetooth. I was using the previous...
