Processor options for the Aspire 3 include Intel Core, Celeron and Pentium processors, with up to 12GB of memory.

Stepping up the capabilities and design to match more demanding user requirements, the Aspire 5 looks to fit a media heavy lifestyle – it’s a dependable workhorse for anyone needing to create and share. Between photo-editing or online publishing, the Aspire 5 is the core tool around which users can organize a busy lifestyle.

Reolink Launches a 16MP Camera and Dual-Lens Security Camera Lineup at CES 2024
Reolink has unveiled a new dual-lens camera lineup at CES 2024. The company showed off a 16 million-pixel security camera, Duo 3 PoE, and more cutting-edge security products and technologies, redefining the future of home and business surveillance. “Devoted to creating the finest security products for consumers and business owners, Reolink is harnessing the latest technology to make homes and offices more secure and comfortable,” says Fabrice Klohoun, Marketing Manager at Reolink. “We invite conference attendees to join us at CES to witness the latest advances in security solutions, including the 16MP images captured by our devices and additional capabilities of Reolink’s product offerings.”
Reolink Duo 3 PoE 16MP Camera
Reolink’s newest addition to its flagship dual-lens lineup, the Duo 3 PoE, innovatively merges two high-resolution lenses into a real-life vision with an enormous 16 million pixels. Users can capture more vivid details than ever before, including wanted or unwanted visitors, license plates, delivered packages and much more. Boasting an advanced dual-image stitching algorithm, the Reolink Duo 3 PoE camera creates a 180° panoramic view with minimum distortion. Users will experience peace of mind when it comes to property surveillance without missing a single detail.
The most innovative feature of the Duo 3 PoE camera is the built-in Motion Track. By overlaying multiple tracks and positions of people, vehicles, or animals over a certain period into a single picture, users can monitor footage within seconds. This feature removes hurdles like video buffering delays and having to watch multiple footage playback to confirm activity.
Reolink TrackMix Series and Argus Track
Reolink’s hybrid lens TrackMix series provides wide-angle images and target-focused close-ups simultaneously. Together with the auto-tracking function, the TrackMix camera lineup delivers the smoothest surveillance experience for tracking a moving target.
Reolink brings this hybrid dual-lens security technology to a consumer-grade security camera, known as the Reolink Argus Track. This sleek camera incorporates all of the must-have features on the TrackMix cameras: 4K colour images day and night, dual-view display – one for overall and the other for close-up, and 6x hybrid zoom. In addition, it is solar-powered with a 6W solar panel.
Reolink ColorX Series
Reolink is expanding its innovative ColorX true colour night vision technology into more lineups: 4K camera series, Wi-Fi camera series, and PTZ camera series.
Integrating an F1.0 super aperture, an advanced 1/1.8” sensor and HDR function, the new ColorX cameras CX810, CX410W, E1 Outdoor CX capture ultra clear and colourful visuals in extreme darkness, improving nighttime surveillance performance as daylight ones.
High-performing security systems should be full-range and centralized. At CES, Reolink showcased three surveillance solutions for homes and businesses, ranging from wire-free battery solutions and fast Wi-Fi 6 plug-in solutions to solid PoE systems.
All Reolink security camera system solutions embrace a spectrum of advanced features, including 24/7 monitoring, AI-assisted smart detection, instant motion alerts, and more.

Lenovo to Launch New AI PCs and Far Edge Computing Products at MWC 2024
At MWC (26th – 29th February, Barcelona, Spain), Lenovo (Booth #3N30) will unveil its latest portfolio of AI devices and infrastructure solutions to date, as well as showcase two new device concepts that challenge the traditional PC and smartphone form factors. At CES, Lenovo launched its first AI PCs, bringing the technology into its ThinkBook, ThinkPad, Yoga, Legion, and ThinkCentre PC portfolio. With the company’s vision of “AI for All” at MWC, Lenovo will unveil several new AI PCs and edge computing solutions, bringing the technology more into the mainstream for 2024/2025. The company expects the trend of hybrid AI to fuel the demand for both AI PCs and AI smartphones and drive another industry refreshment cycle.
Purpose-built to support AI, Lenovo’s AI PCs are designed and engineered to perform tasks such as reasoning, problem-solving, and learning. More importantly, they create a user-machine bond, bringing tailored experiences amplified by AI. With stronger computing power and larger storage, large language models (LLMs) can easily run on the device rather than in the cloud. Over time, these models adapt to the user’s preferences and habits, enhancing their assistance as time goes on, resulting in a more personalized experience while safeguarding privacy.
In addition, Lenovo plans to unveil several next-generation infrastructure solutions for telecom that help businesses harness vast bodies of data at the far edge for transformative AI applications at scale, while reducing the energy consumption of cloud services. As the telecom industry evolves to connect to today’s digital economy, Lenovo’s Edge AI computing solutions are forging new AI capabilities across city streets throughout Barcelona and Madrid, like using video analytics and computer vision to identify smoke and fire, improve emergency response times and support public safety.
At its Tech World event in October 2023, Lenovo unveiled its hybrid AI for All vision and showcased how it is unleashing the power of AI to drive intelligent transformation in every aspect of people’s lives and in every industry and its commitment to investing $1 billion investment in AI innovation. Also, at MWC, Lenovo will show two new concept products for the first time at a public event. Motorola’s adaptive display concept, a world-first product which uses an FHD+ pOLED display that can be bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs, and also another world-first proof of concept and eye-catching innovative laptop form factor that pushes the boundaries of engineering, design, and user experience from the Intelligent Devices Group and Lenovo Research teams.
