Phew, so Prime Day(s), huh? Hope y’all got a bunch of good stuff. I’m exhausted.
But speaking of a bunch of good stuff, Lenovo went on an Announcement Extravaganza this morning.

We have all the details spread across three posts below, so pick your poison. If you’re looking for a starting point, those Chromebooks look mighty fine. Also, portable monitors are some of my favorite tech right now, so there’s that too. You’re welcome.

The new ThinkPad X1 Extreme is the highlight of the bunch, with an 11th gen Intel processor and configurations for RTX 3080 graphics.

Hoses are an inevitable part of everyone’s garden setup. They make it easy to water your flowers and vegetables as needed, and even give a little extra attention to dry spots in your lawn, but they can be unsightly when not in use. However, with this adorable rustic terra cotta pot, you can coil up your hose (up to 150 feet) and store it out of sight, while still keeping it accessible. Its sturdy design resists heat and water, and even has a hold on the side where you can slot in your hose to keep it connected at all times.
