Lenovo Clones

This is surprising. Lenovo clones the Amazon Echo and offers their own Assistant, powered by the same Alexa software. I think it looks much nicer, and there is a basic model and one with a better speaker.

They will also offer the Miix 720, a newer version of their Surface clone, with an improved pen. And then Lenovo will clone their own products and offer better versions of their Thinkpad X1 line, not surprisingly. Those are already the best laptops available but will now get the latest Intel CPUs, edge-to-edge displays, precision trackpads and Thunderbolt/USB Type C ports, without ditching the USB A port.

And quite revolutionary, Lenovo also offers a silver version of their ThinkPad X1 line:

I wish they had done the USB-C stuff with the X1 Yoga last year, but I can't complain. I love my first gen.

Hi Volker,
ich hätte so gern mal von dir einen Vergleich zwischen dem surface 4 pro und dem Miix 720.
Das Silberne X1 sieht auf den ersten Blick ganz gut aus, ich wünsche mir aber auch mal wirklich bunte Arbeitsgeräte.

Die Miix haben mich bisher nicht angesprochen, weil sie nicht so elegant wie Surface sind und Richtung billiger, weniger anspruchsvoll optimiert waren. Ich habe einfach das Gefühl, dass ich eine billige Kopie in der Hand halte. Das 7200 hat jetzt zumindest vom Prozessor und der USB-Ausstattung Surface überholt.

Das X1 ist eine andere Nummer. Das ist ein Original. Das X1 Yoga war der beste Computer, den ich letztes Jahr in der Hand hatte und dieses Jahr legt Lenovo noch mal nach. Auch hier: laden über USB C. Dazu noch mal wesentlich kleiner und besser gelöst, etwa bei der Tastatur, die sich beim Umklappen zurückzieht.

Für das X1 Carbon bin ich verdorben. Ich will bei Windows einen Touchscreen haben. Ich benutze es nur im Tablet Mode und der geht ohne nicht.
