Lenovo Unveils Tablet PC-ThinkPad Device

Filed under
Hardware

Lenovo Monday unveiled a version of the ThinkPad X41 laptop device that incorporates a Tablet PC functionality.

The device can switch from a standard laptop to a Tablet PC by flipping the screen panel, the company said in a statement. The ThinkPad X41 without tablet capabilities was released recently and is Lenovo's lightest-weight laptop.

At 3.5 pounds, the combined laptop-tablet device weighs about half a pound more than the plain ThinkPad X41, although Lenovo claims it is 20 percent lighter than similar devices from other vendors.

The device is the first released by Lenovo since it acquired the IBM division that developed desktop and laptop computers. It is based on the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 platform, Lenovo said. The device will be available on June 14 starting at $1899.

  • Dark Matter
    Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 "Dark Matter", which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA's Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain 'persistence' on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware. Among others, these documents reveal the "Sonic Screwdriver" project which, as explained by the CIA, is a "mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting" allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick "even when a firmware password is enabled". The CIA's "Sonic Screwdriver" infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.
