Lenovo began as Legend Holdings in 1984, and over the years grew to be China's largest computer company, the owner of IBM's Personal Computer Division, and the second-largest PC vendor in the world. Today it is known for its high-quality computers, servers, and tablets. Lenovo has been manufacturing tablets since 2011, and each subsequent offering has offered more innovation and functionality than the last.

Their range can roughly be divided into IdeaPad tablets (for home use or entertainment), ThinkPads (for business), and the Yoga range, so called because of a hinge that allows the device to assume various form factors (i.e. you can hold it, tilt it, or stand it).

Lenovo Yoga Home 900

Expensive, heavy, weird. Who wants a 27-inch tablet? Maybe quite a lot of people. The Yoga Home 900 was great for entertainment, but also had a fair bit of processing power. It was easy to imagine a future full of such devices, but was the 900 Home a few years ahead of its time?

Lenovo Yoga 8 and 10

A low price point made the innovative Yoga 8 a rival to the highly-rated Nexus 7.  It ran Android 4.2 with 1GB RAM and a 1.2Ghz CPU. Its curious design allowed for great front-facing speakers. Our full reviews are here.

IdeaPad Miix 10

The construction quality was similar to the ThinkPad Tablet 2, which is to say pretty high. It felt sturdy, and the soft-touch finish felt quite comfortable. However, rather than introducing attractive new innovations, not much had changed from the previous year's ThinkPad 2.

Lenovo IdeaTab A1000

The seven-inch tablet market had become very competitive, and Lenovo's IdeaTab A1000 took an unorthodox approach to stand out. While the construction quality was solid, the A1000's biggest selling point was its sound quality. It was nice to hear loud, high-quality audio coming from a tablet, but that was hardly enough to justify what was otherwise a sluggish device with a terrible 1,024-by-600 pixel display.

IdeaTab Lynx

IdeaTab Lynx from Lenovo was a hybrid, Windows 8 based tablet. A detachable keyboard/dock that doubled as an extra battery and USB 2.0 port was sold separately.

ThinkPad Tablet 2

Running Windows 8 and highly customizable, the ThinkPad 2 represented a big step up from the original ThinkPad. The ThinkPad 2 could be ordered with options that included a next-gen Intel Atom SoC processor, up to 64GB internal storage, and up to 2GB RAM. It was cloud-ready with seamless Facebook, Twitter, and Windows Live integration, and could last up to 10 hours on one charge.

IdeaTab A2109 and A2107

Geared towards users who consume lots of media such as HD video, the new IdeaTabs came in 9" (A2109) and 7" (A2107) varieties. The A2109 weighed 1.3 pounds and had a super-fast NVIDIA Tegra 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, while the A2107 weighed 0.9 pounds and sported a MTK 6575 1.0Ghz Cortex A9 processor. Both ran Android 4.0 and could accommodate up to 1GB of RAM and 16GB of hard drive space. The new IdeaTabs promised to be faster and capable of more powerful tasks than the previous models.

IdeaTab S2109 and S2110

The 10.1" S2110 had an excellent pair of webcams (5.0MP rear and 1.3MP front) and an optional keyboard dock that added 2 USB ports, a 3-in-1 SD card reader, and 10 additional hours of battery life. The S2109 was a more traditional tablet with just one front webcam and no keyboard dock, but both models came with up to 1GB RAM and ran Android 4.0.

IdeaPad A1

Preceding the S2XXX and A2XXX IdeaTabs was the IdeaPad A1, which ran Android 2.3 (a downgrade from its predecessor, which ran 3.1) and came in black, white, pink, or blue. With up to 16GB of storage and 512MB RAM, the IdeaPad A1 was a less powerful but still efficient tablet. One of its selling points was ability to use integrated GPS with offline maps. Offline maps provide navigation at any time and don't need users to have a data plan. Great for traveling abroad!

ThinkPad Tablet

Geared towards businesses and those who worked on the go, Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet was upgradable from Android 3.1 to 4.0, and included several innovative features. The tablet included a built-in digitizer pen and an optional keyboard folio, which set it apart from other business-oriented tablets on the market at the time. It also had many security features including encryption and the capability for businesses to restrict things like camera use and app downloading.

IdeaPad K1

Announced in July 2011, the IdeaPad K1 held 1GB of RAM and weighed 1.7 pounds. It had a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera, and ran for up to 8 hours on one charge. The tablet's NVIDIA Tegra T20 1.0Ghz processor was a major draw. It came loaded with Android 3.1 and a number of popular apps such as Angry Birds and Kindle for Android.

It was well reviewed, with tech writers praising its design and value for money.
