The all-in-one (AIO) segment has remained steady amid all the recent turmoil in the PC market and, according to Digitimes Research, is expected to witness some solid growth this year as well. We may be done with almost three-quarters of the year, but Lenovo wants to make the most of what’s left and has announced three new AIOs: the ThinkCentre E93z, E73z and M73z.

What the flip? We're as baffled as you are as to how Lenovo can cram two GPUs into a gaming laptop that's a mere 1.4 inches at its thinnest point, surround it Haswell and other high end goodies, and then keep th price tag around a grand. Incredible? Sure, and also the topic of today's top deal, which is for a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p notebook for $1,050 with free shipping (normally $1,150).

What a year it's been for Lenovo. In the second quarter, two independent market research firms -- International Data Corporation (IDC) and Gartner -- crowned Lenovo king of PCs in terms of shipments, and the company continues to find ways to flip a profit in what it considers a "tough" market. Lenovo's revenue for its first fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $8.8 billion, a 10 percent jump compared to a year ago, while earnings jumped 23 percent year-over-year to $174 million. It wasn't all because of traditional PC sales, though.

High prices used to hold back the all-in-one (AIO) form factor, and to make matters worse, they've never been known for being easy to service and/or upgrade at home. All of that is starting to change, and when you throw Microsoft's touch-friendly Windows 8 operating system into the mix, AIO systems suddenly seem a lot more appealing than they once were, resulting in a boost in global shipments.
Well, it finally happened. According to newly compiled data from two separate market research firms, Gartner and International Data Corporation (IDC), Lenovo is now the top supplier of PCs in the world, overtaking Hewlett-Packard (HP) for pole position. While Gartner and IDC report a slightly different number of PC shipments for each OEM, both report Lenovo as having a leading 16.7 percent share of the market, versus HP's 16.3-16.4 percent share.
Lenovo on Tuesday announced the latest generation of its "Tiny" ThinkCentre desktop PCs. One of those new desktops is the ThinkCentre M93p, a small form factor (SFF) system that measures no wider than a golf ball (34.5mm), Lenovo claims. Don't let its small size fool you, the M93p can be configured with up to a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor (Haswell) with Intel vPro technology.
Microsoft could use an ally in the OEM space as it tries to push Windows 8 onto the masses, especially with companies like HP flirting with Chromebooks, and it may have found one in Lenovo. Embracing what Windows 8 has to offer, Lenovo late last night announced half a dozen touch-enabled devices, including the Lenovo Miix, a hybrid tablet/laptop with a 10.1-inch HD (1366x768) IPS display.
Lenovo is finally pumping out machines made in the USA.
Lenovo has been on a roll these days. While the PC industry on a whole continues to suffer, they have continually taken market share and have prospered against the odds. Normally when a company has a recipe for success they continue to iterate, but last year they announced the reversal of a longstanding trend. Rather than continue adding production capacity in low cost labor markets, the company would build a brand new state-of-the-art PC manufacturing line in North Carolina. Late last week Lenovo announced it has made good on its promise, and machines are finally rolling off the line.
