    <p>Interesting and stylish, aesthetically pleasing lineup. That A540 AIO looks especially cool. But let's be real, I haven't bought a single Lenovo product since the spyware incident. I just don't trust them anymore.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#452718">In reply to AnthonyE1778:</a></em></blockquote><p>Buy used Thinkpads. Also, always nuke the OEM install and put a clean, virgin copy of Windows on there. Used or factory new.</p><p><br></p><p>It’s the only way to live.</p>

    <p>Bring on IFA! Crazy, but I am way more interested in the laptop market developments than what's going on in the smartphone world. Guess the "post-PC" era is getting delayed? </p>

    <p>It looks like they finally got the Ctrl + Fn key layout sorted out.</p>

    <p>Why do you refer to the IdeaPad S540 laptop as "AIO"? Aren't all decent laptops All In One? Also, I don't see a track pad even after zooming in. </p>

    <p>Good post. Have to hand it to Lenovo they are certainly creative and proactive in their hardware design. They offer a wide variety of highly desirable consumer products at competitive prices.</p>

    <p>Oddly, Lenovo didn't call out their Chromebooks in the headline and didn't include them until right before monitors and other accessories. Guess this site thinks Chromebooks are the big headline.</p>
