Lenovo Offers New Notebooks, Netbooks, 'Smartbooks' at 2010 CESBy Nicholas Kolakowski
Lenovo is rolling out its newest PCs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, demonstrating in the process that the company is expanding its customer scope in 2010. Lenovo executives suggested that more and more enterprise workers are using their workplace laptops and netbooks for more personal, everyday functions; in keeping with that idea, many of Lenovo's latest devices embrace a more consumer-oriented style, with an emphasis on sleek design, color choice and optimized access to Web widgets such as's MP3 store. Lenovo's 2010 lineup focuses on both powerful workstation devices and netbooks. Their Skylight is a "smartbook" designed to occupy that gap between smartphones and ultra-thins, with a sleek form-factor and easy Web accessibility, while their ultra-thins come with the increased processing power to run more robust operating systems and applications than traditional netbooks.
