The ThinkPad Yoga is heavy and short of on-board connectors — an Ethernet port being the most glaring omission. Otherwise it's difficult to fault this ingeniously designed tablet.

The forthcoming laptop also sports a 14-inch IPS display, spill-resistant keyboard, and a pair of batteries.
Intel has released a statement claiming that the 'packet of death' problem affecting its 82574L Ethernet controller is not a design problem but instead a problem confined to hardware manufactured by a single -- but as yet unnamed -- manufacturer.
Sending a specially crafted packet to an Intel 82574L Ethernet controller can cause the hardware to hang, and the 'packet of death' could be put to malicious use and crash systems even when protected by a firewall.
Intel is close to inking a deal to acquire Fulcrum Microsystems Inc., a private fabless semiconductor company that is self-dubbed as the "leader in Ethernet fabrics."
The chipmaker has unveiled its open-source Open FCoE software package, which aims to trim cabling and power in the datacentre, with major industry support
Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) is here now - at last that's according to Intel, which has thrown its weight behind and released code for a new FCoE initiative.Called Open FcoE, the plan is to allow all Fibre Channel signals to traverse a single network, using a single adapter -- that'll be one of Intel's of course, specifically the X520.
Lenovo has announced a slew of new ThinkPad ultraportable workstations, equipped with Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, most of which come with a lot of configurable options to the buyer's liking.
Amid news that they've got some extra third-quarter profits, Lenovo is continuing the good news with the announcement of three new ThinkPads for us: the T410i, T410si and T510i.
Two upcoming ThinkPad models will be available with AMD processors, marking the first time the computers will incorporate non-Intel chips
Lenovo has continued the ThinkPad tradition of no-nonsense business laptops with the SL500, which provides good value and is powered by the Intel Centrino 2 architecture, and comes loaded with Windows Vista Business.
18 months ago, Intel dropped off an SS4000-E NAS box for me to look at. It was a desirable little box on the surface – Linux-based, four drive bays, dual gigabit Ethernet ports – and I lost no time in installing it in the ZDNet UK Laboratory (Holloway).
I've upgraded two systems to Windows Vista over the past few months, with vastly different results. The first was a nice ultraportable ThinkPad X60, with 512MB of RAM and integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics.
The deadline for our Blogger at Large competition is fast approaching--16 July. Up for grabs is a trip to San Francisco for the Intel Developer Forum, including flight and spending spondulicks, and a high-spec Lenovo ThinkPad with Centrino Pro.
As if a trip to San Francisco and a free pass to the Intel Developer Forum weren't already a great prize, we've added another to the pot — a Lenovo ThinkPad T61.The Centrino Pro laptop will be given to the Blogger at Large, who will wirelessly blog from the September event for ZDNet.
Lenovo's Thinkpads have apparently had an anti-flex roll cage under their keyboards for some time. But with this week's launch of Intel's Centrino Pro brand, the company is not only introducing a new Thinkpad based on the Intel technology bundle (which includes Intel's Core 2 Duo "Santa Rosa" chip), Lenovo is also adding a similar roll-cage to the Thinkpad's lid.
ALL PCs with the Centrino logo or any computer using an Intel Wireless Ethernet adapter must update their PROSet software and drivers found here or your computer can be remotely hijacked. An update was released earlier this month but that version was found to leak memory and cause PC slowdown. It is absolutely critical for IT departments and individual users to update their PROSet software and drivers. Get tips and links for the update here!
Two companies backing the InfiniBand standard have taken steps to move the high-speed networking technology closer to reality, the companies announced Tuesday at the Intel Developer Forum. Chipmaker Mellanox has revamped the Beowulf technique for making cheap supercomputers, using InfiniBand connections between computers instead of the Ethernet network that prevails today. The system uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) communication standard common in Beowulf clusters. The software ran on Mellanox's Nitro computer, which has 16 thin server "blades" in a single 7-inch-thick cabinet. Also Tuesday, Banderacom announced new product kits to help companies use its InfiniBand chip designs. One is for fiber-optic connections to the current "1x" version of InfiniBand; the other is for the second-generation "4x" version with copper wire connections, the company said. Products with InfiniBand 4x connections are expected in 2003, the company said. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Intel announced a chip that lets server- and network-card manufacturers build two 1-gigabit-per-second Ethernet ports into their servers. Most servers today come with network connections one tenth that speed. In addition to the two-port 82546EB chip for servers, Intel released the one-port 82545EM gigabit Ethernet controller chip for workstations and the one-port 82540EM for desktop computers. The chips, currently still in prototype stage, will cost $89.95, $59.95 and $34.95 each. The workstation and server models support the higher-speed PCI-X data-communication standard. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Gateway on Wednesday introduced two new desktop computers aimed at the sub-$1,000 PC market. At $599, the Gateway 300 SE includes a rewritable CD drive and built-in Ethernet networking along with a 1.1GHz Intel Celeron chip, 128MB of memory, a 20GB hard drive and a 15-inch monitor. Starting Thursday, Gateway will also offer the $999 Gateway 500SE, which includes a 1.6GHz Pentium 4 processor, a 15-inch LCD (liquid-crystal display) flat-panel display, and a rewritable CD drive. --Ian Fried, Special to ZDNet News
