A little while back I mentioned that Lenovo, the maker of the business-friendly ThinkPads, had just released some domestic-level machines into the Australian market. One of these, the Y560, was the subject of a competition that I ran and that Pita Norris from Queensland won. I’ve been using the ideapad myself (not Pita’s one – […]
