Lenovo Unveils $199 Tablet PC: IdeaPad A1

Hewlett-Packard (HP) has in recent weeks stirred up a media hornet's nest by knocking $300 off its discontinued TouchPad tablet. But the low priced tablets aren't over yet -- Lenovo has just announced a cheap tablet, but unlike the TouchPad, it's ... not yet obsolete. On Thursday Lenovo unveiled the IdeaPad Tablet A1, which comes with a relatively small 7-inch screen and runs Google's Android operating system (OS).

Lenovo Recalls 200,000 ThinkPad Batteries

Last year, both Sony and Dell were almost as hot under the collar as the laptop batteries both were responsible for shipping. Although Sony was primarily to blame -- it manufactured the batteries, which were prone to overheating -- retailer Dell ... also accepted part of the guilt. Now IBM and Lenovo are at the heart of a recent recall, which has 205,000 notebook batteries affected. Like the Sony culprits, Lenovo is recalling lithium-ion batteries. The technology is used worldwide in IBM's very popular ThinkPad laptop, a device that appeals to many corporate users because of its ThinkVantage ... (view more)
