Tuesday 23 June – MAIN Meeting – 5:30pm for 5:45pm – 8:30pm

Alex Zaharov-Reutt

Last month we had Lenovo’s Australian MD, Matt Codrington, join us live via Skype at Lenovo’s ‘Tech World 2015’ conference in Beijing – with me by his side as I was in China too, at Lenovo’s invitation.

This month we will be joined, live in person, by Lenovo Australia’s Product Marketing Manager, Lindsay Tobin, who will be sharing Lenovo’s new logo and aspirations to become the Australian consumer market leader, with Lenovo already the world’s #1 PC maker, seller and brand.

Lindsay will also showcase Lenovo’s 2015 consumer Windows notebook and tablet range, as well as Lenovo’s innovative Android devices, one of which includes a built-in projector and more.

The presentation will focus on the consumer range, but Lindsay will share information on a couple of Lenovo’s best-selling business machines and will remind us that Lenovo is now the world’s third largest smartphone maker after having globally acquired Motorola’s smartphone business.

Lindsay will also show us some of the work Lenovo has been doing with Microsoft to make the Cortana personal assistant even more intelligent on Lenovo computers thanks to Lenovo’s ‘REACHit’ software.

Lindsay has decided to very generously give away a Lenovo 10.1-inch Windows 2-in-1 Tablet computer, originally valued at $599 for the raffle! It has recently been superseded by the Miix 3 tablet, but this is still a fantastic computer and tablet that is going to be made even better by the free Windows 10 upgrade due from 29 July 2015.

It currently has Windows 8.1, so it runs all the Windows software that you use now.

Specs include an Intel Atom Z3740 quad-core processor, 2GB LPDDR3 1066MHz RAM, a 10.1-inch Full HD 1080P touch screen, 128GB SSD, 802.11 B/G/N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, fully detachable keyboard, rear 5 megapixel camera and front facing 2 megapixel camera, Office 365 pre-loaded and more.

Here’s the US site link It lists a lower US price but that’s because of the US dollar price difference, but there are photos and videos.

Whoever wins this on the night will be very happy indeed, so to guarantee yourself a chance of winning it, come along on Tuesday night!

So… to find out more about Lenovo’s 2015 range, a bit more about Windows 10 and for your chance to win a Lenovo Windows 2-in-1 tablet in the monthly raffle… come along to June’s Main Meeting on Tuesday 23 June!
