Lenovo releases Yoga 900 laptops featuring Intel Skylake

Lenovo Drops a New Bendy, Twisty Yoga Laptop. Improving on its predecessor, however, the Yoga 900 (below) ditches Intel’s low-powered Core M chip for the firm’s latest and greatest Skylake line, offering a choice of i5 or i7 Core processors. During the Lenovo Yoga event in San Francisco, I got a chance to sit down with the Lenovo Yoga Home 900, the company’s hulking ‘portable desktop’ solution.Lenovo, the company best known for its stoic ThinkPad business machines, has been enjoying a great deal of buzz over the last few years around its Yoga range of affordable consumer laptops.Laptop-tablet hybrids never quite took off, with consumers eschewing the all-in-one devices because ...

Intel develops Raspberry Pi rival with button-sized Curie chipset

Button-sized module from Intel will power development board for students. Intel first showed off Curie at CES in January. Despite it’s small size (about the size of a shirt button) it comes packing motion sensors, Bluetooth Low Energy support, and battery charging circuitry, making it ideal to applications in always-on health and wellness devices. “Empowering budding entrepreneurs and young students has always been a priority for Intel, and by partnering with Arduino, we are bringing the power of Intel to a new generation of makers,” said Josh Walden, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group. “With the advanced features of the Intel Curie module embodied ...

Intel’s Tiny Curie Chip to Power $30 Arduino Board

Button-sized module from Intel will power development board for students. Intel first showed off Curie at CES in January. The world first met Intel’s tiny Curie platform when it was a button on a sports jacket, but the reality of the tiny connected computer brain will, at least initially, be far more pedestrian and perhaps more tangible for millions of students around the world.This is the latest addition to Arduino’s line-up of budget-friendly development boards, and it uses Intel’s cute-as-a-button Curie chip to power itself along. This year at CES, Intel introduced Curie — a button-sized system-on-chip module made for low-power wearables — but the company was mum on what would be ...
