Lenovo Opens Smartbook Chapter With Skylight

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenovo's Skylight has a customizable user 
| interface (UI) built on a Linux shell. "The 
| gadgets consist of live Web gadgets like 
| Facebook, Gmail and Twitter," said Ninis 
| Samuel, director of global marketing for 
| Lenovo's Idea product group. These gadgets 
| are always connected to the Web and update 
| automatically. The gadgets also let users 
| buy and download videos and movies from the 
| Web.


IdeaPad U1 Hybrid pairs notebook base with detachable tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenovo has introduced the IdeaPad U1 
| Hybrid, a device which features a notebook 
| base and a detachable tablet. The tablet 
| integrates an LED-backlit 11.6-inch display 
| and Qualcomm's Snapdragon ARM CPU running 
| the Skylight Linux interface. Users can 
| easily browse the internet and perform 
| other basic functions with the tablet 
| alone. A 16GB flash drive, 512MB of RAM, 
| and Snapdragon integrated graphics round 
| out the tablet specs.


Lenovo Unveils New Hybrid Tablet/Laptop and Smartbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Skylight could emerge as an alternative in 
| the low-cost laptop space to netbooks, 
| which are mostly powered by Intel's Atom 
| chips. Atom-based netbooks have a leg up 
| because of support for both Microsoft's 
| popular Windows operating systems and 
| Linux. Arm-based chips do not support a 
| full Windows OS, so smartbooks usually come 
| with the Linux OS.

Lenovo launches Linux based Skylight Smartbook and Hybrid

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenovo has launched its Skylight smartbook, 
| a mobile device with 10 inch screen and 
| integrated 3G in a clamshell laptop format. 
| Powered by a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 
| processor, the Skylight uses Lenovo's own 
| "web-optimised" interface. Users are 
| presented with six  "web gadgets" in the 
| simplified, gadget-based user interface 
| displayed on the 1280 by 720 resolution 
| display.



Lenovo IdeaPad S12: netbook or not?

,----[ Quote ]
| The current use of the term 'netbook' started
| with the original Asus Eee PC. Weighing less
| than 1kg and sporting a 7in screen, it was
| clearly distinguishable from notebooks -
| especially as it ran Linux rather than
| Windows.


Lenovo IdeaPad S10e review

,----[ Quote ]
| Lenovo isn't a household name when it comes to computers, but in business
| circles the company is well respected for its robust line of ThinkPad laptops
| (previously produced for IBM). Consequently, you won't find Ubuntu or
| Mandriva on its IdeaPad netbooks â the only option is SUSE Linux Enterprise
| Desktop.


Virtualization: Pushing Linux Into Small Businesses?

,----[ Quote ]
| When Lenovo launched four ThinkServers a few days ago, The VAR Guy noticed
| that the systems â designed for small and midsize businesses â emphasized
| virtualization. Hmmm. So, The VAR Guy began to wonder: Are virtualized
| servers (running a mix of Linux and Windows) really starting to push into the
| SMB space?


Microsoft-paid anti Linux stooges at Lenovo

,----[ Quote ]
| This isnât like Windows at all which already has or provides easy access to
| everything I want it to do, can be downloaded and burned legally and for free
| to any blank disc I have laying around, and is entirely open source. Linux is
| proprietary and costs between $140-$1000 a license.


This is Why Lenovo Sucks at Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| When someone makes such giant mountains out of such tiny molehills it makes
| me wonder. How is it that ordinary Linux users can download and install Linux
| on Thinkpads, Ideapads, EeePCs, Mini Notes, and all kinds of computer brands
| and models without it being a big hairy failure? What special knowledge do
| they possess that Lenovo is unable to grasp? How can anyone in tech these
| days get away with not having broad knowledge of multiple operating systems,
| applications, and trends in development? You don't have to be a total elite
| expert in every detail, but I think anyone who isn't informed enough to avoid
| spouting pure nonsense should not have a job in tech.
