W550s_hero-title[1]

In our more recent “Why we love ThinkPads” article, I already announced that I had replaced my T440s with a new machine – the W550s. My T440s has served me well for the 1.5 years of usage, but it was time for me to move on. You may ask “Why the W550s, why not the […]

DuOS Interview

duos

On the 17th of April 2015, I had an interview with the team behind the best Android emulator to date. With many alternatives on the market like BlueStacks, Android x86, GenyMotion and possibly others it always came down to mostly the same missing feature multi-touch support.

ThinkPad X240s Review

X240s_01

The Lenovo ThinkPad X240s is the slim version of the ThinkPad X240, but it was only available in select asian countries (China, HK, Japan). The ThinkPad X240s is slightly thinner than the ThinkPad X240 (about 3mm or 0.1″). But in terms of specifications they are very much alike, you can expect better battery life from the […]

T440s_6

Introduction I know you may think that it is pointless to write a detailed late review about the T440s, when CES 2015 is only two weeks away.

X1C2-SIM-1

I was having issues getting mobile broadband working on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 2. My mobile data provider is Mobistar in Belgium. When my secondary SIM-card (data SIM) was in the X1 Carbon, I would be stuck at the PIN-code entering stage, and then it would eventually fail network authentication. Then all I was left with, […]

This review is written from a programmer’s point of view. This means I might be a little more critical of the keyboard layout. The second ThinkPad X1 Carbon goes by many names: ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 2 ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2nd gen New ThinkPad X1 Carbon ThinkPad X1C2 But what you should know is that […]
