Lenovo is one of the biggest computer makers around and its products range from desktops and laptops to server systems for business use. Lenovo has rolled out a new range of notebooks and a new ThinkServer today.

The new ThinkServer is the TS200v and it looks more like a desktop computer than a server you would find in an enterprise environment. The machine can be had with Intel Core i5-670, 660, 650, or 540 processors. The machine can also be had with an Intel i3-530, Pentium G6950, or Intel Celeron G1101 CPUs. The chipset used in the line is the Intel 3450 and the system supports unregistered DDR3 RAM courtesy of four expansion slots.

A single Gigabit Ethernet port is built-in along with x16 and x1 PCIe slots, ten USB ports, dual PCI slots, and VGA out. Pricing for the ThinkServer TS200v starts at under $400.

The 17-inch machines run Windows 7, Vista Ultimate, or XP Pro operating systems. The W701ds adds a second 10.6-inch WXGA resolution screen that slides out for supplementary viewing.

The W701 weighs 8.973 pounds and measures 16.14-inches x 12.2-inches z 1.59-inches. The W701 starts at $2,199 and the W701ds starts at $3,799.

Lenovo also debuted the new X201 and X201s notebooks. The X201 can be had with Intel Core i7-620M, Core i5-540M, or the Core i5-520M CPUs. The X201s can be had with a Core i7-640LM or i7-620LM processor. Both machines can be had with Windows XP Pro, 7 Home Basic, 7 Premium, and Pro Ultimate. Both machines have the same 12.1-inch WXGA+ LED backlit display and support up to 8GB of RAM. Storage is to an assortment of 5400 rpm or 7200 rpm HDDs up to 500GB or 80/128GB SSDs. 

Graphics for both machines are via Intel HD GPUs and optional external optical drives are available. WiMax is optional and Bluetooth is included along with Wi-Fi for connectivity. 4-cell or 6-cell batteries are available with the main difference between the two models is the weight.

Music copying

Daily Tech shows little comments at the end of the articles, one comment from a BMG attorney states "When a person copies a song by himself, then we can say he stole a song", when you show this kind of comments by a high profile individual, it is a kind of advertisment for that individual or the company that represents, and it is offensive, talking about issues that cannot be rendered in only one sentence it is offensive to the people that read your publishings. About the copying, when an individual purchases a compilation of songs that can be called an "ALBUM", the person is not only buying a piece of plastic and metal, the person owns the property for the price that was paid, and can do whatever that individual wants with that property, of course only for personal use, the person can pass the personal property to another only if he gives all the rights of the property ("Invoice","product","Copies","etc"), only then another individual can use the previous owned property.

Ending this comment, when a high profile individual wants to do a statement, the person must give basis and scope of the comment.

You REALLY should learn a litle about copyright law....and basic ethics, for that matter.
