More Lenovo Yoga P40 Details Emerge as First Listings Appear

Lenovo first unveiled their Yoga P40 mobile workstation on December first and around two weeks later they revealed the specifications, at least some of them. When a new product like this is being introduced, we usually only get the top end specifications and not all options available. Top of the line is awesome, but it might simply be too much for some users, both performance and price wise.

I’ve long been on the search for a new mobile workstation to suit my needs, plenty of power, mobility, and universal usage, but there wasn’t such a product on the market. The Microsoft Surface Book came close, but I was seriously disappointed in the specifications and low-end hardware they used. Especially considering the premium asking price of the Surface Book. When Lenovo unveiled the P40, I saw my rescue and have since been waiting for it while scouting for more details.

Initially we got a starting price of $1399 USD at the same time as they revealed the specification. It was clear right away that this wasn’t the price for the model with the revealed specifications. Today, or rather yesterday, I finally discovered the first shop listing of the new Yoga P40 that both provide us with an estimate on a European price, some more specification details, as well as a possible release date.

The initial specifications were a QuadroM500M graphics card, 6th-generation Core i7 processor, 512GB SSD, and 16GB RAM as well as an optional LTE version. Thanks to the first product listings we can elaborate a little more on that.

The 14-inch Lenovo P40 2-in-1 mobile workstation will come with either an i7-6500U or i7-6600U processor and either 8 or 16GB RAM. The SSD isn’t 512 GB in all models either and there will be options with a 256GB SSD instead. So far only models with FullHD resolution have been listed, but there should also come a version with a 1440p display instead.

The first listings come from two different shops which both are located in Poland and both revealed the same information. The prices start at about €1817.00 for an i7-6500U with 8GB RAM and 256GB HDD and goes up to about €2380.00 for an i7-6600U with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD. The product listings aren’t complete, but they do give us some more insight into these pretty cool mobile workstations.

While the release date on the Yoga P40 wasn’t listed for either of the shops, there are hints towards when we can expect to see it. Lenovo only revealed that it would be released in Q1 2016, but not when. The official ThinkPad Pen Pro for the Yoga P40 does however have an estimated delivery time set for 3 weeks. While that doesn’t mean that the Yoga P40 will ship at the same time, it makes little sense to sell a stylus for a product that isn’t on the market yet. So fingers crossed if you’re looking to buy one of these sweet machines. The waiting time should be over soon.

Razer Announces Worlds Thinnest Gaming Laptop

“The Razer Blade is the worlds thinnest gaming laptop”

For Gamers By Gamers

If you’re a gamer you are most likely going to be interested in Razer USA! Razer has announced their newest addition to their family. Today they showed off their new Razer Blade Netbook, a beautiful, and elegant machine designed for gamers on the go. A little over a week ago Razer announced that they would be showing off their newest product, giving us a simple clue. “THINNER THAN A DIME – 30 MAY 2013”. I waited all day for their release, assuming it would be a new laptop, and I was right. Well half right. Today they announced two products, one of which I will tell you about in this article. This newest computer is the thinnest laptop in the world.

 If you’re big on gaming, then you are probably familiar with Razer gaming peripherals, perhaps you are even aware of their gaming tablet and laptops. Keeping up with today’s technology is one of my favorite things to do, and today has been a big day, I awaited Razer to announce their newest addition to the family. They have been advertising for the past couple of weeks that their newest device is going to be thinner than the dimension of a U.S. dime .071 inches.

It baffled me, but I came to the conclusion that the new announcement had to be for one of two different pieces of equipment. The Blade at the time was the thinnest laptop, thinner than any other laptop on the market at .088 inches. The next piece of equipment that is really thin, is Razer’s Edge the first gaming tablet, which is .80 much thicker than the Blade.  Anticipating the announcement I believe that Razer was going to bring us a new laptop, as the sizes seemed to match up. Though I wasn’t thinking that it would be as thin as it is.

The World’s Thinnest Gaming Laptop, with a thickness of only .061 inches, it is thinner than the diameter of a dime. The screen is not a large screen, only measuring in at 14-inches, though it is an HD+ screen designed to bring the user awesome 1600 x 900 resolution! Featuring an NVIDIA GTX 765M GPU, you will be able to play the most current games.

If you are a mobile gamer, than this laptop is most likely what your heart has always desired, portability paired with the latest and greatest technologies available!
