Lenovo's sleek multitouch laptop opens up a whole new game Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Scott Stein at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. And one of these stories, maybe this story going on the laptops after Windows 8 is really touch and the fact that touch is filtering its way slowly but surely into laptops that you may be familiar with and if one had touch them before. Prime example, the Lenovo IdeaPad U310, which now has a touch option. It's also in the U410, which is the slightly larger one. These are Ultrabooks with your standard set of features. The U410 does have discreet and videographics. These have 1600 by 900 displays. They have a solid metal design, very comfortable and 10-point multi-touch right over here as you'd expect. These are gonna be available in spring starting at $779 for the U310 Touch, $850 for the U410. And touch is not just for Ultrabooks, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 and Z500 laptops are full featured 14 and 15-inch laptops with a video discreet graphics, backlit Keyboards, screen displays up to 10 ADP, optical drives, and of course 10 point multi-touch as well. These are gonna be available in the spring starting at 699. They have a pretty sleek design. That's the story of CES, touch touch everywhere, everywhere. But that's not really such a bad thing, is it? I mean, its useful feature. I'm Scott Stein at CNET for CES 2013.
This feature-filled midsize gaming laptop has almost everything you'd want, except for a touch screen.
A sharp-looking mainstream laptop with decent graphics and some configuration flexibility, the IdeaPad Y570 is a solid alternative to some of the better-known consumer laptop brands.
Lenovo's 14-inch IdeaPad Y460 is a well-designed gaming-multimedia laptop, but in this price range, the competition is also bringing its 'A' game.
It's the next MacBook. Just kidding! But, seriously, Lenovo's sleek 14-inch non-ultrabook laptop has an undeniably Apple-ish look.
The 11.1-inch Lenovo IdeaPad U110 is the most beautiful laptop we've seen in years, and behind those good looks is a well-appointed, fairly priced ultraportable. Despite a few minor nitpicks, we recommend the IdeaPad U110 to those who want a lightweight, eye-catching laptop for frequent travel.
Combining AMD's excellent ultraportable Fusion platform with Lenovo's consumer-friendly IdeaPad designs, the S205 is a solid, if unexciting 11-inch laptop ideal for on-the-go websurfing.
One of only a handful of 3D laptops, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d skips active shutter glasses for an inferior technology, but keeps the A-list price.
The Yoga's 13-inch screen can flip all the way around and fold flat on the back, turning the laptop into a tablet. Or, it can stand up on its front edges like a tent (called Tent mode). It can also be used with the keyboard side down and the screen bent back, becoming almost like a tiny tabletop touch-screen all-in-one (Stand mode).
The IdeaPad Y480 gets you Lenovo's excellent construction quality and ergonomic design without having a "business" laptop, but some more configuration flexibility would be appreciated.
This new laptop is almost as flexible as the Yoga, but not quite.
