Lenovo's new ThinkPads pack 8th-gen Cores and slimmer designs

  Lenovo's new ThinkPads pack 8th-gen Cores and slimmer designs Lenovo just revamped the lion's share of its ThinkPad lineup, and it's good news if you want a speedy portable that won't weigh down your laptop bag or if you're privacy-conscious, for that matter. Its new ThinkPad X, T and L models have all made the switch to faster 8th-generation Intel Core processors while sporting slimmer, lighter bodies. The 12.5-inch X280, for example, is 15 percent thinner (0.69 in) and 20 percent lighter (2.6lbs) than its predecessor. There's also a new 13-inch L-series (the L380) for people who want a no-frills pro laptop in a more portable design than the 14- and 15-inch versions.

Lenovo's latest additions to its ThinkPad X1 series of laptops has been announced with the unveiling of the X1 Tablet, X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga, marked to be available in Australia in February. And according to them, they are now entirely bloatware free. Finally.

The X1 Tablet sports a 13-inch, HDR ready 3k display and an Intel 8th Gen processor along with an IR camera and fingerprint reader for better security, while both the X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga are, according to Lenovo, the world's first laptops announced that will support Dolby Vision HDR - albeit in a future update.

Intel and AMD announce first Core i5 and i7 chips with Radeon graphics

  Intel and AMD announce first Core i5 and i7 chips with Radeon graphics Back in November, longtime rivals Intel and AMD shocked the computing world when the two companies announced that they’d be teaming up to create laptop chips that combined Intel’s Core line of processors with AMD’s Radeon graphics. And now at CES 2018, the first fruits of that partnership have been revealed, in the form of a pair of Intel Core i5 and i7 chips powered by discrete AMD Radeon RX Vega M GPUs. Along with the processor and GPU, each unit also has 4GB of HMB2 VRAM onboard, which Intel says should help drastically save space internally for laptops while increasing battery life.
