Lenovo Unveils Education Laptops, Priced Starting at $189

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo wasn’t content with unveiling a ton of new laptops and tablets at CES 2018, so they continue the launches. This time they’re bringing forth a series of laptops and convertibles aimed at the education market, schools and colleges. Prices start at $189 and of the core models of the series is the Lenovo 100e, pictured above.

The entry level unit Lenovo 100e packs an Intel Celeron N3350 Apollo Lake CPU, plus an 11.6 inch display and a battery that offers 10 hours of functioning. The device runs on Windows and it’s supposed to be some sort of rival for Chromebooks, especially judging by the specs. The other new Lenovo models are actually Chromebooks, so this is one of the few units with Windows 10.

Lenovo 300e brings forth an 11.6 inch convertible format and offers a 720p resolution. It has two configs: one with Chrome OS and one with Windows. The Windows model relies on an Intel Apollo Lake processor and also comes with a stylus and has 8 hours of battery life. The Chrome OS model has a MediaTek MT8173C processor and a battery good enough for 10 hours of functioning.

 

There’s no stylus here, in case you were wondering and the prices start at $279. An extra newcomer is an 11.6 inch convertible Chromebook, that comes with a pen, up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage. It also has a battery that offers up to 10 hours of functioning and an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake chipset. This one is called Lenovo 500e. Lenovo also performed updates to the ThinkPad 11e and ThinkPad 11e Yoga models, with a new $429 laptop and a $499 convertible, that ship with Windows 10 and pen support.

All the new Chromebooks have been tested for ruggedness and come with spill resistant keyboards.

Acer Iconia One 8 (2018) Tablet Schematics Leaked Via FCC

By Radu Iorga

Acer is a big presence at IFA and MWC every year and since we’re approaching the latter, they’re prepping some goodies. Among them we find the Acer Iconia One 8 (2018) tablet, which is an entry level model, with schematics just leaked online.

The Acer Iconia One 8 (2018) doesn’t seem to be very different from other Iconia One models. The leak happened via FCC, where the device got listed in official manner. The product should sport a metal back cover with rounded corners and a centrally positioned camera. There should also be a small speaker grille at the bottom right corner, while the audio jack and power plus volume buttons are placed at the top and right hand side.

FCC also revealed a part of the device’s specs, which are entry level as mentioned before. We’re dealing with a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8167A processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. There’s an 8 inch screen in the mix, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, a 5 MP main camera and a 2 MP front shooter. The OS is Android of course, but no version is mentioned. It’s probably just Nougat and finally we also get a 4500 mAh battery.

Expect a price below $200.

Tonight’s Worth Sharing: UMIDIGI S2 Pro Smartphone Unboxing And Review

By Tim

l

Tonight’s video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the UmiDigi S2 Pro smartphone which seems to be a decent device but has some of the usual Chinese brand drawbacks.

Lately the Chinese have been trying to sell folks “dual” camera phones that really only have a single camera on the back. That appears to be the case here and although a terrible idea to lie to your customers, this is an otherwise good product.

I myself also do not believe that the battery is actually over 5000 mAh as the mfg claims due to the less than stellar battery performance that is more akin to about a 3500  mAh , or less, battery.

While it is an okay product, I believe that the Le Eco Pro 3 might be a much better value considering the price and the fact that the manufacturer has lied a wee bit about the camera and perhaps also the battery.

All that being said, here is the video. Make sure to subscribe to Andrew’s channel if you like this tech stuff!

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Another Pretty Good Review Of The Chuwi LapBook Air

By Tim

I am a huge fan of the notebook in this review and I will eventually be purchasing one. This review comes to us from Linus on the TechLineHD channel on YouTube.

He seems to be a very honest and straightforward reviewer and does point out the shortcoming of the device as well as all the reasons you might want to get your hands on one of these.

This notebook is still on sale at Banggood for roughly $380 so make sure to visit their site to see current pricing.

Be aware this is not a Dell or HP or Lenovo, but also be aware that the money you would save for a useful notebook over those high-end brands can get you a 256 GB SSD and perhaps a few hundred more in gasoline to fuel your car to get to work each day.

As I always try to do when sharing a video, I recommend this channel and I would highly suggest subscribing if you like this kind of tech info that is darned honest and gets to the point without the frills.

So all of that being said below you will find the video.

That is all for now,

Tim

New Video: Figuring Out Connection Timed Out Errors, No Joy So Far

By Tim

So for the last few weeks I keep getting blocked from my sites here. At first I thought it was AT&T since that is my only home connection, but lately I am getting the same issue using Mediacom cable at work.

So this is not strictly a DNS or routing issue. The only real cure to get connected again is to either use a VPN which works easily, or reboot either the router at work or the phone at home. Neither of which are a viable alternative.

I honestly do not have a clue as to why this issue is occurring, but it is damned annoying! So below you will find the video I shot to demonstrate this issue and show you exactly what is happening.

Any comments or feedback are appreciated! Just don’t spam the site here with your comments, just leave a tech tip or register and then post a comment. As usual, we are still looking for donations to get cable into the apartment here so I can begin hosting tabletserver.com on a tablet or other local device again! So below is the link to our PayPal donations page, followed by the video!

Donate Now!

That is all for now,

Tim
