I’ve always been a fan of Lenovo (back then IBM), this latest release from the brand – the ThinkPad X1 Carbon continues IBM’s traditional laptop looks but packs a big punch. To start off with, Lenovo claims the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon to be the thinnest and lightest 14″ ultrabook ever.
Speed has never been a limit for mankind and when it comes to processors that speed up your machines then the likes of IBM, Intel and AMD (to some extent) have always been breaking their own records. Well, it has happened again and this time it is IBM that claims to have come up with world’s fastest processor namely z196. This chip is said to be of 5.2 GHz capacity and (hopefully) delivers its top notch speed.
Here’s something abit more radical to start you off with your week. Everytime we stumble over Instructables we find something great, this time we’ve found this geeky DIY which turned an old IBM electric typewriter into a fully working computer keyboard.
I certainly remember having one of these around the house when I was growing up but I never thought it would be of any more use since PCs came along. Maybe now is the time to get it out, instead of taking it down to the museum!
I have to agree with the creator of this genius project though, is it a typewriter that’s a computer keyboard? Or is it a computer keyboard that’s a typewriter? If you’re prepared to sacrifice your old antique then hit the jump and find out what you’ll need to setup this cool, geeky project.
The latest release of Microsoft’s collaborative and messaging software: Exchange Server 2010 public beta version, raises the stakes against rival IBM’s Lotus Notes. Exchange 2010 has many new features, including new integrated email archiving and productivity features, as well as option for customers who want to mix and match on-premise and Web-hosted Exchange.
The new email archive feature in Exchange 2010 will allow IT professionals to access emails across an organization using

Here’s one of the latest videos of the Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds to be posted onto the internet. Just to recap, it made its debut earlier this month (don’t be confused with its sister W700 though) it is powered by a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU and comes with 4 GB of RAM and NVIDIA Quadro FX3700M graphics. It’s a dual screen laptop, so the primary display is a 17-inch WUXGA with a 1920 x 1200 while its secondary is a 10.6-inch WXGA with a 768 x 1200 resolution. Watch it in action after the break.
If you saw the video review of the Lenovo ultra portable ThinkPad X200 we featured two weeks ago then you might be interested in a few closer shots of the mini laptop itself in this gallery. The X200 has now been officially introduced in Korea (where the below pictures have been taken) for 1,700,000 (KRW) which is equivalent to about £750. That’s not bad, considering that it adopts Intel P8600(2.4GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory, 160GB HDD and has a 12-inch 16:9 widescreen with a resolution of 1,280×800.
This unique and in my view very awesome-looking creation from Nicolas Lehotzky has a sublime look with the main emphasis of its concept on safety. The concept notebook is equipped with hidden USB ports and as you can see it also features a knob integrated with security features.
The integrated security knob on the notebook’s frame is fingerprint activated, which allows the laptop to respond only to the owner’s touch, working as a physical lock. The laptop has a built-in paper shredder too! And as you will have guessed, the hidden USB ports prevents it from any unwanted data downloads, so any unauthorised USB flash drives trying to penetrate its way into this laptop’s system can be disregarded – unless it uses Windows 😛 But all in all, it looks like a neat design!
