When you think of the top brand names for tech out there, all begging for your hard earned cash, you're probably thinking of Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft. You're more than likely going to be thinking of those brands specifically. With their massive marketing campaigns it's no wonder that's just the way it is. But despite some great marketing we all have heard that news that Microsoft has been somewhat lacking in the sales department. There is however no lack of competitors that have picked up on this and started taking shots at the larger name brands. Companies like Lenovo are coming up with commercials, and overall marketing tactics, that are taking on the old school tech giants and pointing out legitimate facts.
That being said, Lenovo seems to have their ducks in a row in terms of what they have to offer right now. Is it enough to take on the top dog though?
The Lenovo Yoga Pro 3
Lenovo prides itself on their Yoga line, mainly because of the devices remarkable ability to do Yoga... sort of. Essentially this name means that the device can bend in ways that a typical laptop couldn't and comes with touch screen capabilities to boot. This laptop is able to have it's screen bend all the way back to the point that the keyboard and the screen are facing back to back. You have the laptop's "tablet" mode where it could function as a laptop, and then you have the tent mode for when you'd like to watch movies or videos without holding the device. It's a laptop and tablet all in one, without the detachable keyboard niche. What's holding it back from really taking on Apple's Macbook Air? Let's just say $900 sounds a lot better for a product, than $1,300.
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro
When you think of tablets, you probably don't think about them including built-in projectors. With Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, that's actually exactly what you're getting though. This tablet comes in with a built-in pico projector that can throw a 50-inch theater image on any surface. Nifty? Completely. Necessary? Debatable. Yes, there are many implications that could be utilized with this device. Don't want to use your company's projector to get your presentation done? This tablet can display your presentation for you, and store everything else you may need. Do you just want to have a relaxing night with some friends watching cat videos and eating pizza? Well you can do that too if that's what you choose. The tablet itself has a 15 hour lifespan when not throwing images on walls. Not a bad life for a tablet at all, and again, the business uses for this really justify the use of the projector.
Is It Enough?
Lenovo might have laptops that bend and turn in to tablets. They might have tablets that have projectors built into them. The only problem is that they're missing one crucial element; the fanbase. The market is flooded by the 3 main top tier competitors in the market and Lenovo just isn't one of them. This, in no way, suggests that their products are bad in any way shape or form. The fact that Apple still holds the largest portion of the consumer tech market means that it's just that much harder for the other two companies, and even more so for sister companies like Lenovo. The fact that they're using Microsoft's financial backing to create commercials that go up against the tech giant does say something about the company and it's products, however.
There is no sure fire way to say whether or not Lenovo's products will hold a candle to Apple's product line, but if you're able to stand up to Apple, that shows that there is some merit there.
Without a doubt though, Lenovo is definitely stepping up their game, and people should be on the lookout.

No matter what needs your business may have, the performance and portability of a tablet can help you out in some way. Tablets have changed the way we do many things, and they can open up doors and create opportunities for your business.
Have you ever thought about using tablets to collect customer data that will help your business? You can use tablets to let your customers take surveys or give feedback on their experience with you.
Here are some techniques and benefits:
Reach Every Customer... Ever.
Using a tablet is the easiest way to reach out to your customers to get feedback. Computers are not practical. They are too big and bulky and not even an option. Tablets are small and portable, so they eliminate inconvenience when approaching a customer. If you run a department store or a restaurant, you can have your staff out on the floor talking to customers and getting feedback from them. Not only is their feedback very valuable, but you would be surprised at how positively your customers will respond just knowing that you care enough to do that. Not only is that good for business in general, but chances are they will be willing to give you the data that you are looking for in order to improve your business. By equipping your staff with tablets, you will be able to reach an incredible amount of people and gather more data than you thought was possible.

Make Life Easier
New tablets are pretty powerful. They can handle many aspects of your business, and they can definitely handle any customer. It literally makes delivering surveys and questionnaires easier than ever before. You couldn't use smartphones because that would be annoying, and like I said before, computers aren't even an option for this part of your business. Another way that you're probably failing at right now is by using paper to collect data. Not only is it the 21st century, but paper just sucks. It can get wet, lost, ripped, or maybe some people don't write so well and you can't read it. Simply handing someone a tablet takes care of every issue that I just pointed out.
Get It Done Faster
Tablets are super fast and easy to use for everyone. Let's say that you have a customer waiting in line to check out or waiting on their bill. How easy would it be to just slip them a tablet so that they could provide their feedback while they wait? They won't even be annoyed by having to write something or by listening to you tell them to call the number on the back of their receipt. They will probably be pleased to have something to pass the time while they wait, and when they are done and hit "submit", you already have all the information that you need to improve their experience the next time the visit. Using tablets in your business can help you raise your level of customer satisfaction immediately.
As the days slowly begin to bleed into weeks, we start to see just how advanced technology is becoming. In some ways it can seem scary and astonishing all in the same moment. We are starting to outsource our jobs to computers and machines. Yes that, we are beginning to utilize a more mechanized way of performing jobs. Even jobs such as delivery service. Take Amazon for example. Amazon is a company that is known for its online shopping and delivery services. They too are now doing their best to "keep up with the times". The company has now devised a way of delivering our packages to us that will leave some wondering if they may have seen a UFo in the air.Amazon has recently announced a new "drone" based delivery system. The company plans on calling it's new service Amazon Prime Air. CEO of the company, Jeff Bezos, claimed that the service could be running and in the air as soon as 4 to 5 years from now.As nice and cool as this may sound, Amazon may have a lot of red tape to cut through before they are truly ready for lift off.
The FAA, or Federal Aviation Administration, have a lot to sort through when it comes to approving the use of these commercial drones for actual flight through U.S. airspace. There is actually so much to sort through, that should the company start tomorrow, the "pilots" of the unmanned drones for strictly commercial purpose would have to apply for those positions, and would then have to be constantly reviewed, case by case. Needless to say, the new service and the FAA need to come to some sort of agreement to make this service possible. The FAA, however, already has plans to utilize umanned commercial drones as early as September 30th of 2015. One of the biggest reasons why the creating and working through the regulations have become so tedious, is due to the fact that it was expected that the drones would be manned by a remote pilot, but since Amazon is designing these drones to be completely autonomous, there would be no pilot directly manning each flight that the drone makes.
Did You Know Short Term Tablet Rentals Were Used To Test New FAA Rules For The Use Of Electronic Devices In Flight?
As it stands right now, there is only one commercial drone pilot who has been approved to make flights, who currently resides in the Arctic. Although there are many restrictions and regulations that need to be added into the FAA to make things like these drones and the Prime Air service take to the skies, there are plans to continually add to the regulations as the years go by. Currently autonomous unmanned drones are not allowed in the U.S.
Despite the, somewhat, unpromising remarks from the FAA, Amazon is still keeping their heads up. They have plans to continually work on newer and better model drones, and claims that what they have shown are merely prototypes. They await the rules and regulations of the FAA to make it possible for their program to take off.
What does this mean for businesses? Well think about this if you will. This might make things a bit easier when a company could be in need of certain items in a timely fashion. Don't want an employee stuck in traffic trying to pick up a package? Ordering from Amazon may soon become an invaluable asset in terms of saving time for companies. We will see what comes of this in the future, but as for now, don't expect to see these drones in the air any time soon.
"Where are all those plasma screens coming from?" asked my CCTV expert friend as we were walking down the aisle of the ISSC east at the convention center in Washington DC.
"Look, I work these surveillance camera tradeshows all the time by myself. I have to lug the demo camera equipment, sales brochures, bling, even parts for the trade show booth... its all I can fit in the company van. I'd have to rent a truck if I wanted to have a nice plasma in my booth too. It sure would be nice to have an attention grabber. It's just I can't afford the $1500 the convention center wants me to pay. I don't know how the small businessman like me can compete with the big guys at ADT."
I said you don't have to spend $1500. "Not even a thousand." Find out more about how inexpensive it is to rent a plasma and have it delivered right to your trade show booth.

needs of an entire enterprise of users, as opposed to just one or a few users.

The most frequently asked question in the world of computer rentals is undoubtedly "How much does it cost to rent a computer?" Well, the answer isn't as simple as many people may think because the cost of your rental depends on four distinct variables: time, space, spec and availability. Computer rental prices vary depending on the length of your rental period, where you need the rental, the specification of the rental and the availability of the rental.
With Rentacomputer.com, your computer rental rates vary depending on how long you want the rental, whether it be monthly, weekly or daily. Typically, a Pentium 4 desktop computer will start at approximately $99 per week in most markets for a weekly rental. However, based upon the computer specification, availability, and location, prices can be 20% to 40% higher or lower.
Delivery locations could have an impact on cost as well. Getting a delivery to a convention center is naturally going to be more expensive than delivering to a business address. Why is this, you may ask? Well, business addresses normally have specific parking areas for delivery trucks as well as easy access to the delivery or installation room. Convention centers, on the other hand, require a lot of hard work and effort from the rental company and the company receiving the equipment. Making a delivery to a convention center usually takes a lot longer for the delivery person than it would at a business.
We all know that when we go into a store to buy a computer, not all the prices are the same, they vary depending on a lot of factors. The same goes for computer rentals. Most computer rentals consist of an Intel Pentium 4 computer running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Apple Mac OSX. Standard RAM is generally 2GB with a 6GB or larger hard drive. Higher specifications than that, like a higher graphics card, cost more to rent.
One issue that comes into effect when it comes to computer rentals is the issue of supply and demand. The number of competitors in a given market area as well as total computer rental units can have a huge effect on the supply of a computer rental. The best way to get a computer rental is to have a Tech Travel Agent book your technology rental needs. That way you will have a guarantee that you will always get the equipment you need. By using a Tech Travel Agent, you don't have to rely solely on a single vendor because Tech Travel Agents can get equipment from any retailer in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
If your company generally employs temporary employees, then a computer rental is perfect. Why buy a computer for somebody who isn't going to be working for you long term? A computer rental is also perfect if your company tends to go to different trade shows or conferences. Companies that do this realize that lower costs and no maintenance are a great way to save some money.
Overall, a computer rental is a great way to get high-quality computers without having to make a permanent purchase. If you have any questions on computer rental pricing then visit Rentacomputer.com today.
