I met with the Lenovo folks and got a closer look at the notebooks they’re currently offering. The Lenovo S10e netbook made an appearance, but you can’t tell the difference between it and the S10. Other than the fast booting Splashtop environment, that is. Here’s some camera time with the 16-inch Y650 and the unique dual-screen W700ds.

The dual-display is well constructed and stable. I saw the internals in a mock-up and you don’t have to worry about the side screen flapping in the breeze. ;) The new Y-series offer a nice mix of features between home and home office. The all offer facial recognition, 16:9 displays and basic multi-touch gestures in the trackpad.

    I am a little disappointed that the Y650 gets rid of Lenovo’s excellent thinkpad finger recognition system. The new facial recognition system seems to be a step-down considering that similar systems have free online downloads, while the thumb recognition system was a stock feature that provided superior data protection.
