Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: CES 2018 Lenovo Thinkpad Line

By Tim

There is some good info in this video concerning the latest ThinkPad line from Lenovo.

Obviously this will be just a short video, but still worth watching anyway, from Andrew over at AMDTech.

Lenovo sports some mighty fine laptops/notebooks and 2 in 1 tablets. As always they bring a plethora of stuff to these shows.

Andrew has been covering the show all week and we have featured several of his videos. This is the last day of the show and he may have 1 or 2 more to edit but for now we are just going to share this one.

Most of these are well out of my price range, but I would seriously consider the Mixx 630 if I were flush with cash. I think it would make a great little notebook and serve well as a web server also. (Yeah, hint here, click that donate button that is displayed all over the web site.)

So now let us get right to this video and see what Lenovo is promising for 2018.

That is all for now,

Tim

In attempt to achieve YouTube stardom, woman accidentally kills her boyfriend

These 2 definitely win the complete idiots of the week award! I know this isn’t tablet related but such stupidity deserves publication.

A Minnesota woman has been charged with manslaughter after she shot and killed her boyfriend as part of the pair’s attempt to become YouTube celebrities.

According to court documents, Monalisa Perez called 911 on June 26 at around 6:30pm local time to say that she had shot Pedro Ruiz III. The two had set up two video cameras to capture Perez firing the gun at Ruiz while he held a book in front of his chest. Ruiz apparently convinced Perez that the book would stop the bullet from a foot away. The gun, a Desert Eagle .50 caliber pistol, was not hindered by the book.

Ruiz, who was found with a single gunshot in his chest, was pronounced dead at the scene.

SAN FRANCISCO—Nvidia took the wraps off its long-expected GeForce GTX 1080Ti video card on Tuesday. Its existence may not have been a surprise, but its release window sure was: “next week.”

The $699 video card will launch with a whopping 3584 cuda cores, far exceeding the 2560 cores packed into the normal 1080, along with 11GB RAM (likely GDDR5X) and an 11Gbps framebuffer. Clock speeds were not confirmed, but Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang claimed the new card is “faster than a Titan X.” That card clocks in at 1,417MHz (though speed isn’t that pricier card’s only significant spec.)

Alongside the new $699 card, Huang also confirmed a price drop for the elder GTX 1080 model: starting at $499.
