ThinkPad T431s Ultrabook Available End of April

Lenovo’s ThinkPad T431s ultrabook will be coming out soon at the end of this month to be made available for consumer purchase. The system has been updated with some small cosmetic changes in appearance, most notably in its lid and touchpad.

One key point to note, if you’re thinking of getting a ThinkPad T431s for yourself, is that while Windows 7 is installed by default, you do have the option with going with a Windows 8 operating system. This makes sense and should appeal to computer users who haven’t completely warmed up to this new Windows generation of software.

We were fully expecting Lenovo to load Windows 8 on all the devices that it showed us, so we were surprised to find the T431s was running Windows 7 – despite the fact it has a “Windows 8″ button on its keyboard. Sure enough, when we referred back to our earlier coverage of this Ultrabook, the T431s will come with Windows 7 by default. Of course, you’ll be able to preload your machine with Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro as well.

IdeaCentre Horizon Tablet PC – Product Unboxing Video

Lenovo’s IdeaCentre Horizon is out and available for purchase. This All-in-One Desktop computer was first introduced at the beginning of the year and it features many new and innovative ways of computing. Lenovo calls the Horizon a “Table PC” or an “Interpersonal PC.”

The IdeaCentre Horizon is essentially a big 27″ Tablet PC. It has a touch display, similar to its close predecessor in the IdeaCentre A720, but this machine also has a built in battery, allowing for the device to go mobile. While practically speaking, you wouldn’t lug around the Lenovo Horizon out and about, you could however, bring it along with you in short distances, such as around the house or office.

Some people may be skeptical of this new product category and form factor, simply because off initial glance the IdeaCentre Horizon seems a tab big and inconvenient to go mobile with, but the system really deserves a fair shake and trial. Lenovo has packaged the Horizon with some extremely cool software applications, which make social gaming, sharing, and work collaboration really easy and fun. You definitely have to check out the “Aura Interface” that is built in. Watch the entire product unboxing video here, or jump to the section highlighting the Lenovo “Aura Interface” with the subsequent link.

Sony VAIO Duo 11 Ultrabook Digitizer Pen

There are some ultrabook convertible tablets but few have digitizer pens shipped with them. While this feature may not be a big issue for some, it could be for others, especially for those that prefer to write and draw on the tablet with a stylus pen.

Sony’s VAIO Duo 11 is one of the best Windows 8 convertible tablets out there. Not only does it have a digitizer pen available for users, it’s a solid device that’s been engineered well.

The digitizer layer and pen on the Sony Vaio Duo is excellent and really helped by having the most stable screen design possible. It’s locked into position and is stable enough to take full pressure on the pen without bouncing or tipping back. It’s great design for those wanting to use a pen. For those not wanting to use a pen you might be encouraged to try with the full HD screen as text and selection boxes tend to be smaller.

Toshiba Satellite U920t Convertible Ultrabook Tablet

Toshiba’s Satellite U920t is an interesting Windows 8 convertible ultrabook to have recently hit the market. It uses a sliding mechanism to switch back and forth between tablet and ultrabook modes. Two comparable alternatives are the Sony VAIO Duo and the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist. The article below, with a snippet and link provided, examines the Satellite U920t as well and notes its similarities to the Duo and Twist. Check it out.

The 12.5-inch screen makes this one of the larger convertibles, using the same 1,366 x 768 resolution favoured by the budget end of town. For most users this will be fine, but designers and photographers will probably prefer the true HD resolution offered elsewhere. The Gorilla Glass finish suggests it’ll handle a beating without getting bruised, while the 10-point multitouch display means the screen can be used as a virtual piano, one of the only applications that we can imagine needs so many points of contact. Despite the lower resolution, the IPS display here is one of the better ones we’ve seen, with excellent image quality across the board. Once again, we see a glossy finish employed and despite the anti-smudging tech provided by the Gorilla Glass, our sample was soon covered in fingerprints. If you do end up buying a touch-enabled PC, a cleaning cloth will be your first must-have accessory.
