Yoga 2 Pro

PC makers have been pumping out new devices powered by Intel’s latest Haswell processors, so it’s about time we saw a hardware refresh for Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 13, one of the most interesting Windows 8 convertibles launched more than a year ago.

The new Yoga 2 Pro will be launched at this year’s SITEX IT bazaar, and Lenovo has certainly upped the ante here, as we’re looking at more than just a processor bump.

Unveiled by none other than the actor who portrayed Steve Jobs, Ashton Kutcher, the Lenovo Yoga tablet already scored a coup at its very launch this week.

Unlike other tablets, the new Android device has a multi-positional kick stand that lets a user prop it up. You can do this to watch a video like a stand or lay it down at an angle to use the on-screen keyboard.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

One of Lenovo’s most hotly-anticipated ThinkPads ever announced will finally make its first retail appearance in Singapore at the PC show this Thursday.

First announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, the ThinkPad Helix is the first ever ThinkPad to come in the tablet plus keyboard dock form factor. And with a starting price of S$2,199, it’s probably the most expensive convertible we’ve seen so far.

So what does the Helix offer with that high sticker price?

ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

Of all the ultrabooks designed to take on Apple’s MacBook Air, few were as stunning as the ThinkPad Carbon X1, which combined the ThinkPad’s classic design with modern speedy chips and a super thin body.

Lenovo is back at it once more with the newest iteration of the X1, this time with a 10-point multi-touch screen that enables users to take advantage of Windows 8′s touch-friendly UI.

Laptops will soon flip, swivel and rotate to give you both a traditional clamshell design to type on as well as a touch screen to dab at when you’re on a plane, for example.

Just how do PC makers see their role in this so-called “post-PC” era when users are expected to drastically change the way they interact with these devices? We spoke with Jessie Quek of Lenovo to find out what to expect, starting from the next few exciting months.

In the market for a new laptop? Just hang in there a while longer, as Intel’s newest chip, codenamed “Ivy Bridge” is just starting to roll out in laptops worldwide.

The Ivy Bridge upgrade brings a number of significant improvements, including a 5 to 15 percent increase in CPU performance and a whopping 20 to 50 percent increase in integrated GPU performance.

This means that unless you’re an enthusiastic gamer, the integrated graphics are now powerful enough to handle 3D graphics and many existing games. This in turn translates to better battery life for your laptop.

I’m sure if you wait a while longer, your choices will increase exponentially, but for now, here are three “Ivy Bridge” laptops which caught our attention.
