Press Release:

New Lenovo ThinkPad Ultraportable Laptops Recharged, Reenergized and Renewed

Up to 24-hour battery life, smart PC technologies & sleek, usable design

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – March 8, 2011: Lenovo announced today the next generation of the best-selling ultraportable laptop of 20101 – the ThinkPad X220 laptop – and the X220 convertible Tablet PC. These PCs give mobile business professionals the full performance and usability found in larger laptops, but in a super ultraportable design. The PCs run up to 75 percent faster than ultraportable competitors that use low-powered CPUs2, feature smart PC technologies for incredibly long battery life up to 24 hours3 on the ThinkPad X220 and sport a clean, revamped design with hinge-based latching and a giant touchpad in a thinner laptop design. Additionally, they feature improved durability with wider drain-holes in the spill resistant keyboard and a 50% improvement in drop test performance4.

“Put simply, The ThinkPad X Series has everything a modern road warrior needs without compromises – low weight, long battery life and high performance,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president, ThinkPad Marketing, Lenovo. “We’ve refined the mobile computing experience to make it more productive and enjoyable with features like smart PC technologies and enhanced video and voice calling.”

24 hour Battery Life for Around the Clock Computing

The ThinkPad X220 offers up to 15 hours battery life with a standard 9-cell battery. Battery life jumps up to 24-hours by adding the new ThinkPad external battery. The convertible tablet starts under four pounds with its standard 4-cell battery. When combined with a 6-cell battery and the external battery pack, the tablet can run for 16 hours continuously on one charge. Users charge the PCs on the external ThinkPad Battery when connected to the PC or separately. A battery charge indicator shows when the battery reaches a full charge.

Full-Performance Under Three Pounds

These speed-optimized PCs fit the same full-powered CPUs as bigger 14 and 15-inch laptops for full performance5, while similar weight competitors offer only low powered CPUs. Lenovo Enhanced Experience 2.0 primes the PCs for rapid boot, shut down and resume from sleep by tuning the BIOS and other hardware settings. With Intel™ HD integrated graphics the PCs perform twice as quickly in streaming video, editing photos and loading web pages. Additionally, USB 3.0 technology on select models transfers data lightning fast, up to 10 times that of USB 2.0.

Smart PC Technologies

Equipped with second generation Intel™ Core® i7 processors, applications run fast and make multi-tasking hassle-free. The PCs come with self-aware and adaptive technologies to ensure priority components receive power for the highest levels of performance and battery life. Intel™ Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 boosts processor speed during intensive tasks, and with Lenovo Turbo Boost+, the PCs can stay in Turbo Boost mode longer by keeping processor temperatures below certain thresholds. With reduced power to non-essential hardware, the laptops achieve up to 30 percent longer battery life while playing multimedia so users can watch DVDs, listen to MP3s or stream web content longer.

Loud and Clear Voice and Video Calling

The “no compromise” performance experience continues with technologies that solve everyday challenges. For example, they incorporate several technologies for excellent voice and video conferencing, such as private chat and conference call microphone modes, keyboard noise suppression technology and a dedicated LED-lit microphone mute key.

The PCs also keep corridor warriors connected longer with Lenovo’s new Instant Resume function. This function maintains connections during sleep mode for up to 99 minutes, eliminating the need to login and reconnect between meetings. And tablet users don’t have to worry about losing their pen with the new “never-lost-pen” technology. It notifies a person when he or she moves the tablet without the pen in the pen-holder.

ThinkPad Remodels with Clean, Sharp & Durable Design

The inside of the new PCs reveal a cleaner, sharper design over previous models. Both the ThinkPad X220 laptop and X220 Tablet feature a 12.5-inch HD screen and self-closing hinges that shut the PCs. This space-saving hinge design brings several key benefits: better antenna and speaker placement for stronger thoroughput, a 45 percent larger touchpad and a cleaner visual design. The larger, buttonless touchpad gives extra room for fingers to scroll, highlight and do multitouch gestures.

For students, mobile sales forces and other mobile professionals working outside, the multitouch tablet now adds a new rough and tough feature to its super bright, 300-nit screen with scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass. Already military specifications tested to meet extreme conditions, Gorilla Glass strengthens the screen so it can withstand scratches, scrapes and abuse from the field.

Ready for Business

The PCs are also business-ready: They’re easy for IT administrators to use and manage thanks to their second generation Intel™ Core® and Core® vPro processors. Common ThinkPad docking stations and batteries also allow companies to swap hardware among employees to maximize their resources and minimize cost.

Pricing and Availability6

The ThinkPad X220 laptop and X220 Tablet will be available starting in April through business partners and chúng tôi Prices for models start at approximately $899 and $1,199, respectively.

Lenovo Thinkpad 8 Review: Fancier Cpu And Display Take A Toll On Battery Life

Sure, you can now use Microsoft Office on an iPad, but you can run Office and just about every other productivity app on a Windows 8 tablet. And while many of those devices have all the same specs, Lenovo is banking on its ThinkPad 8’s faster CPU, higher-resolution display, and business-like styling to earn a coveted spot on your desk.

This 1900×1200 display is by far the ThinkPad 8’s best feature.

Where 8-inch competitors such as the Toshiba Encore 8 and the Dell Venue 8 Pro max out at a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, the Lenovo ThinkPad 8 goes all the way to a desktop-like resolution of 1900×1200. That high pixel density—around 270 pixels per inch—results in very crisp, clear text and video. Business documents are readable no matter how fine the fine print.

You needn’t be concerned that desktop elements will appear unusably tiny at this resolution. The desktop scales to 200 percent by default, which makes icons and thumbnails look about the same as they would on a 1280×800 display. That’s large enough that I can navigate the OS with my fingertip while holding the device. When I’m sitting at my desk with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, I’m comfortable with scaling set to 150 percent, so I can see more content at once.

Build quality is on par for the ThinkPad brand. It feels like business-class hardware.

Display brightness is good at both ends of the spectrum. I could read outside in bright sunlight and in the dark without burning my eyes out. The sound emanating from the stereo speakers near the bottom is decent for a tablet of this size. You won’t fill a boardroom with an amazing audio presentation, but you’ll annoy your next-cube neighbor just fine.

Where’s the pen?

Given Lenovo’s collaboration with both Wacom and N-trig on previous ThinkPad tablets, I had hoped to see an active digitizer in a business-oriented ThinkPad tablet. I’ve used Windows tablets in my studio for years, and the ability to mark up PDFs with a pen was a large part of what I did all day. I tried a capacitive stylus with the ThinkPad 8, but it didn’t work well in either OneNote or Windows.

The ThinkPad 8 would be an even better Windows tablet if it supported active digitizer pens. 

Lenovo beefed up the ThinkPad 8 by including a quad-core Intel Atom Z3770 processor, instead of the lesser Atom Z3740 found in most of its 8-inch competitors. Like those devices, it comes outfitted with 2GB of memory, but it offers twice as much standard storage—64GB—and you can upgrade to 128GB for an additional $140.

Benchmark performance

When we benchmarked the Thinkpad 8 with PCMark 8: Work, Lenovo’s tablet slightly outperformed tablets with Intel’s Atom Z3740 processor, but it fell slightly behind the Atom Z3770-powered Dell Venue 11 Pro. (That device has an 11-inch screen with resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It earned a PCMark: Work score of 1404, to the ThinkPad 8’s 1378.) In my usage, the ThinkPad 8 handled everything I threw at it, including some more intense desktop programs, but it just didn’t leave me as impressed as the Venue Pro 11 (which is far more versatile in terms of its optional accessories).

The ThinkPad 8 edged out three other 8-inch Windows tablets on the PCMark 8: Work benchmark.

The ThinkPad 8 also fell behind in battery life, likely due to its higher-resolution screen and faster processor. The Thinkpad lasted 6 hours and 48 minutes in our battery-rundown test, well behind the nearly 9 hours of Dell’s Venue 8 Pro or the whopping 10 hours of Lenovo’s other 8 incher, the Miix 2. A day of reading left me with low battery, needing to plug in by late afternoon.

A well-built tablet 

The ThinkPad 8’s build quality is on par for the brand, meaning it’s solid and feels like business-class hardware. The top side is fabricated from aluminum, with a rubber edge to soften its feel, but I wish Lenovo had carried that material around to the back of the tablet. The ThinkPad 8 is comparable in thickness and weight to the Dell Venue 8 Pro (0.35 inches and 0.95 pounds respectively), though its longer screen makes it chassis just a little larger (8.83 inches, compared to 8.5 inches for the Venue 8 Pro). But the ThinkPad 8 has none of the chunk factor of the 64GB Toshiba Encore (which weighs 0.98 pounds); it’s comfortable to hold in one hand.

The rest of the field beat the ThinkPad 8, on the other hand, when it came to battery life. 

There’s a capacitive Start button beneath the display, and a front-facing two-megapixel/1080p camera above it. The 8MP/1080p camera on the back is a nice bump from the more typical 5MP rear camera. But the physical volume and lock buttons on the right side (with the tablet in portrait orientation) are recessed a little too deeply into the frame and are difficult to locate by touch.

I/O ports, meanwhile, are scattered haphazardly around three sides: The mini USB 3.0 data and charging port is on the right, the micro-HDMI and micro-SD card slots are on the left, and the headphone jack is on the bottom. If you want to plug in a monitor and external speakers or headphones while you charge the ThinkPad 8, you’ll be stuck in upside-down portrait mode.

Cover up

Lenovo’s optional Quickshot cover ($35) is terrific. It’s similar to Apple’s Smart Cover for the iPad, in that it connects to the left side of the tablet via magnets, and it functions as a stand that puts the ThinkPad 8 into “tent” mode for hands-free viewing. Fold down the back corner to expose the rear camera lens, and the tablet automatically goes into camera mode. Unfortunately, the micro HDMI and micro SD card slots are also on the left side, so the cover blocks them. Fortunately, the cover is easy to remove when you do need them. Aside from these small annoyances, I highly recommend that anyone buying a ThinkPad 8 toss a Quickshot cover in their shopping basket, too.

The ThinkPad 8’s $399 starting price is about $100 higher than the average 8-incher, but you get more processor power, more storage, and higher resolution than those machines deliver. Lenovo also offers a $499 SKU that comes with Windows 8.1 Pro, which adds management features your corporate IT department will appreciate, but you’ll give up a free copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student to get it.

The shorter battery life and the lack of digitizer pen options are disappointing; in fact, those shortcomings knock the ThinkPad 8 out of the getting-work-done category for me. But those factors might not be showstoppers for you, and I didn’t let my personal needs factor too heavily in my final rating.

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (2023)

Unlike its darker sibling, Lenovo’s 4th-gen X1 Yoga features an Iron Gray color, one that is distinctly metallic with a dark silver top and slightly shiny, smooth edges. The model features the same general design and size as the X1 Carbon including the iconic ‘X1’ stamp on the lid’s corner. Unlike the Carbon model, however, the Yoga variety features the same flexible hinge included on Lenovo’s other Yoga models.

Users can fold the display all the way back into ‘tablet’ mode, which, thanks to the laptop’s overall slim design, feels fairly comfortable as a slate, at least when compared to competing two-in-one models. Lenovo has built a small stylus into the X1 Yoga’s base — it fits snuggly with the body, being distinguished from the rest of the frame only by a slim seam between the pen’s end component and the laptop’s body.

The laptop feels very solid in the hands; the hinge is sturdy and holds itself in whatever position it is placed. Ports are neatly lined on each side of the laptop, which features a glossy display with slim bezels and a tiny webcam lens positioned above the display.

The Iron Gray color is a nice alternative to the black color found on the X1 Carbon, X390, T490/T490s, and most other ThinkPad laptops. The overall design maintains a professional appearance that’ll fit in well at business meetings but without the no-nonsense style of the darker models. The laptop maintains the iconic red TrackPoint in the keyboard, as well as the two slim red accents on two of the three trackpad buttons.

With a starting weight of 2.99lbs, the X1 Yoga has a bit of heft compared to the market’s lightest ultrabooks, but that doesn’t mean it’s heavy. Users are unlikely to notice the extra burden in their backpack, and at barely over half an inch thick, the laptop can easily be slotted between other gear.

The X1 Yoga measures 12″ x 8.5″ x 0.59″ and is offered with multiple configuration options. Users can get the 8th-gen Intel Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8565U, including the vPro options, as well as up to 16GB of RAM, up to a 1TB SSD, integrated Intel UHD 620 Graphics, and a 720p HD webcam with microphone.

Users are given a generous array of configuration options, including an IR camera for Windows Hello, ThinkPad PrivacyGuard and PrivacyAlert for those with demanding security needs, as well as four different 14-inch IPS display options ranging from a low-power FHD touchscreen up through a 4K Ultra HD touchscreen with Dolby Vision and HDR400.

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Tablet Review: Smart Upgrades Make This A Worthy, Pricey Choice

Lenovo’s third-generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet (2023) is one of the best Windows tablets you can buy, boasting a 3K screen, a larger battery, a stiffened keyboard, and more. But check your wallet, because it has a price to match.

Year in and year out, Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Tablet ranks consistently among the strongest Windows tablets in the market, despite fluctuations in price and performance. This year, a concerted effort to refresh and update the X1’s components elevates the ThinkPad X1 Tablet (3rd Gen) to the top of the heap.

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet (3rd Gen) isn’t perfect, as battery life is still mediocre. Still, its new capabilities earn it Editor’s Choice honors, joining its far more affordable cousin the Lenovo Miix 520 (which has a more consumer-friendly build and price).

Weight: 2.76 pounds (Tablet and keyboard), 3.44 pounds (Tablet, keyboard, pen and charger) as measured

Price: $1,719 MSRP; $1,547 as tested, from Lenovo; includes ThinkPad Pro pen and keyboard

Lenovo sells the ThinkPad X1 Tablet (3rd Gen) in three configurations, from $1,410 to $2,369, MSRP; we found a different combination of memory and storage on Amazon, for $2,048.

One of those, where the tablet landed face down from waist height, spurred us to confirm that yes, it uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 to protect it. In all, though, we have no concerns with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet’s build quality.

One of the goals this latest X1 apparently sought to achieve was parity with its competition, along several axes. One of these is the kickstand, which now reclines the tablet smoothly from nearly vertical to not quite flat (10 degrees or so). Instead of reclining from the bottom, it now reclines from the top, just like every other tablet kickstand in existence. This makes it roughly equivalent in design to Microsoft’s Surface Pro (2023).

Mark Hachman / IDG

There’s a bit of give when the X1 Tablet (2023) is fully reclined, but it’s also surprisingly sturdy.

Mark Hachman / IDG

Rounding the edges of the kickstand (shown here, on the tablet’s side) is a subtle improvement, but a welcome one. The biggest change, though, is how Lenovo changed the kickstand to one that unfolds from the top, rather than the bottom

As you unfold the tablet, you’re faced with a somewhat thick bezel surrounding the upgraded screen, which houses a fingerprint reader midway up the screen to the right.  According to our measurements, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet pumps out 451 nits’ worth of luminosity, far more than what you’ll need. Below, the included keyboard should be a familiar one to ThinkPad enthusiasts: There’s the iconic red pointer TrackPoint nub, as well as the touchpad with its large, red-rimmed buttons just above. 

Mark Hachman / IDG

The ThinkPad X1 Tablet now sports a downward-opening kickstand, a more intuitive design already adopted by virtually every other tablet maker.

Mark Hachman / IDG

Don’t forget about the Windows Hello-capable fingerprint reader on the right-hand side of the tablet, which can log you in a flash.

A number of hardware makers have begun shipping utility software that lets you configure and tweak their products to your liking. Lenovo’s Vantage utility is excellent. Two hidden features are shown below in this screenshot, which allows you to eliminate one of the typing annoyances listed elsewhere in this review. If you purchase the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, be sure to check it out.

Mark Hachman / IDG

Lenovo Vantage doesn’t ask you to use it, but you’d be foolish not to.

Lenovo bets on a 3K display and USB-C

If the built-in display weren’t enough, Lenovo also made a wholesale shift to USB-C ports with Thunderbolt, which can be used to connect external storage or power an external monitor. Lenovo didn’t bundle any dongles or other options for backward compatibility, however, so you’ll need a dongle or hub to connect legacy USB-A devices.

Mark Hachman / IDG

The icons indicate that the ports are Thunderbolt capable.

Less noticeable are the addition of new far-field mics that can pick up your voice across the room. Lenovo planned to include the Amazon Alexa assistant app, but it didn’t quite make it to our review unit. Nevertheless, if you permit Microsoft’s Cortana to respond to “Hey Cortana” while on the lock screen, you can holler across the room to ask questions, set reminders, and perform similar tasks. Those mics seemed to perform about as well as the Harman/Kardon Invoke, another Cortana-powered device. If you choose, you can also turn off the mic entirely via a keyboard function key.

Typing experience has improved

Lenovo’s lineup of ThinkPad X1 Tablets has always ranked among the sturdier typing experiences in mobile computing, and the latest ThinkPad X1 Tablet continues the tradition. While I felt that that the last-generation’s typing experience took a step back, this generation feels like a return to form. The keys remain a bit stiff for my preferences, but they’re broad, offering plenty of landing space for your fingers. The 1.5mm key travel provides satisfactory depth.

Mark Hachman / IDG

The Lenovo X1 Tablet keyboard should be a familiar sight to ThinkPad fans.

Lenovo stuck to the basics within its function keys, and a set of four large arrow buttons help provide navigation. Just be aware that—as with the prior ThinkPad X1 Tablet—the bottom row of Lenovo’s keyboard puts the Function key before the Control key on the left-hand side, and not after, a marked difference from most Microsoft and Logitech keyboards. 

Though I used the TrackPoint extensively in earlier days, trackpad have improved enough to make the legendary eraser nub largely irrelevant. Still, the TrackPoint is relatively unobtrusive, and the X1 Tablet’s plasticky trackpad isn’t quite as good as some of the others I’ve used. In other words, some users might still want the TrackPoint.

Unfortunately, Lenovo also took one thing away from the ThinkPad X1 Tablet: its suite of cool, though somewhat impractical, add-on hardware modules. Though the projector module was a bit anemic, the barrel battery was a handy addition. The larger 42Wh battery (up from 36Wh in the prior generation) doesn’t entirely make up for it. 

Mark Hachman / IDG

The ThinkPad X1’s Pen Pro fits neatly into its holster, which itself fits into a notch at the tablet’s base. 

Lenovo’s tablet designers seem to have a love-hate relationship with the pen loop, which has appeared both as a passive attachment that could be inserted into the USB-A port, and more recently as a dedicated loop. With this iteration, Lenovo has somewhat thoughtfully compromised: there’s no dedicated pen loop built in, but there’s a dedicated notch designed specifically for the pen holster. Purists won’t have to worry about a pen loop breaking up the clean lines of their tablet, and pen fans won’t have to sacrifice an otherwise useful I/O port. But problems can crop up when you transport the tablet, as the holster can snag, and you’re forced to put the ThinkPad X1 Tablet into your bag, stylus up.

Mark Hachman / IDG

Lenovo’s Pen Pro lacks an “eraser” button that some pens include, but writes well with just a bit of latency.

As for the pen, Lenovo’s included two-button ThinkPad Pen Pro stylus registers up to 4,096 levels of sensitivity. I preferred Lenovo’s Active Pen 2 that shipped with the Miix 520, primarily for its top-mounted button and clean lines, but it lacked the pocket clip that the Pen Pro includes. The Pen Pro is rated at 156 hours of use with its single AAAA battery (included). We didn’t test that aspect, but the Pen Pro feels quite comfortable in the hand and inks with just a tiny bit of latency. Lenovo includes a Lenovo Pen Settings app to configure what each button does, rather than using Windows.

Performance: 8th-gen Core chips give it a big boost

Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Tablet lineup has tended to emphasize productivity, which points toward the PCMark Office test, primarily, for benchmarking. But with this generation, Lenovo has added a more powerful 8th-generation Core processor. We expected that would boost the X1’s performance, and generally, we weren’t disappointed. Using Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility, we discovered that the ThinkPad X1 Tablet doesn’t throttle itself to adhere to thermal limits. But it does artificially limit performance to meet its own power threshold, which has somewhat of the same effect. Some of the benchmark scores, as a result, may be lower than you’d otherwise expect.

Mark Hachman / IDG

PCMark’s Work is one of the few tests where the ThinkPad X1 Tablet scored near the bottom of the pack. Even so, the score shows it’s competent, and  based on our experience, it can handle office tasks quite well.

PCMark also recently released PCMark 10, which puts tablets and notebooks through an updated series of home, work, and creative tasks. We don’t have enough aggregate scores to compare, but our review unit scored 3,423.

Mark Hachman / IDG

In PCMark’s Home test, the X1 finished near the top of the heap.

Mark Hachman / IDG

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet finishes just below its stablemate, the Miix 520. 

Mark Hachman / IDG

Again, in terms of pure CPU rendering, the 8th-gen Core within the ThinkPad X1 Tablet (2023) does quite well.

While Cinebench computes how fast the ThinkPad X1 Tablet’s CPU cores fare across a short sprint of a test, the HandBrake test is more of a marathon. Using this open-source tool, we calculate how long it takes for a 4K movie to be converted into a format for Android tablets. The X1 does well here, too.

Mark Hachman / IDG

The relatively short time needed to convert a movie speaks well for the Lenovo X1 Tablet (3rd Gen).

Finally, we look at 3D performance. While we’re not expecting much from a productivity-minded tablet, the Futuremark 3DMark test, using the Sky Diver benchmark, proves that Lenovo isn’t that far off the mark.

Mark Hachman / IDG

While the X1 Tablet (3rd Gen) is powerful enough for some light gaming, consider sprite based games like League of Legends rather than modern first-person shooters.

One area in which Lenovo’s tablets have struggled is battery life, and unfortunately this is a tradition the ThinkPad X1 Tablet maintains. Its battery life is actually shorter than that of its predecessor, though that almost certainly has something to do with pushing far more pixels in its display.

Mark Hachman / IDG

With many modern tablets and notebooks pushing hard to increase battery life, we hope this is an area that Lenovo works to improve in its next model. Nevertheless, that might mean cutting back on its display resolution, which is certainly praiseworthy.

Conclusion: Excellent, though expensive, quality

This could be due to a range of factors, such as server outages, internet connectivity issues, or browser compatibility problems. If you suspect that technical issues might be to blame, try clearing your browser cache, using a different browser, or restarting your device.

It’s also possible that you might be encountering issues with signing up for ChatGPT because an account with your email address already exists. If you think this might be the case, try resetting your password or logging in with your existing account information.

Finally, it’s worth noting that ChatGPT might not be available in all regions or countries. If you’re trying to sign up from a location where ChatGPT is not yet supported, you may not be able to create an account. In this case, you may need to wait until ChatGPT expands its services to your area.

This can help identify if a security add-in or extension is causing the error.

Attempt to log in with your chosen authentication method again.

If you receive a message saying “This user already exists” when attempting to sign up, try logging in with the same authentication method you used during your initial registration.

If you’re not sure which method you used, try signing in using each of the following methods from a non-Firefox incognito window: username and password, continue with Google button, and continue with Microsoft button.

If you encounter the “ChatGPT Signup Is Currently Unavailable” error, try waiting and attempting to sign up later.

This error could be due to high demand, so waiting a while before trying again might solve the issue.

If waiting and trying again later doesn’t work, double-check your login credentials.

Make sure you’re using the correct email address or authentication method, and try logging in again.

If double-checking your login credentials doesn’t work, try using a password manager.

This can help ensure that you’re entering the correct login information.

If the issue persists, try restarting your router or switching your internet connection.

This could help resolve any connectivity issues.

If none of the above solutions work, check online forums to see if others have experienced the same issue.

How (And Why) To Set Up A Vpn Today

Marissa Mayer made Yahoo’s VPN famous by using it to check on the work habits of her employees. Lost amid today’s VPN conversation, however, is the fact that virtual private networks are much more than just pipelines for connecting remote employees to central work servers.

And that’s a damn shame, because VPNs can be helpful tools for protecting online privacy, and you need not be an office drone to enjoy their benefits.

A VPN, as its name suggests, is just a virtual version of a secure, physical network—a web of computers linked together to share files and other resources. But VPNs connect to the outside world over the Internet, and they can serve to secure general Internet traffic in addition to corporate assets. In fact, the lion’s share of modern VPNs are encrypted, so computers, devices, and other networks that connect to them do so via encrypted tunnels.

Why you want a VPN

You have at least four great reasons to start using a VPN. First, you can use it to connect securely to a remote network via the Internet. Most companies maintain VPNs so that employees can access files, applications, printers, and other resources on the office network without compromising security, but you can also set up your own VPN to safely access your secure home network while you’re on the road.

Second, VPNs are particularly useful for connecting multiple networks together securely. For this reason, most businesses big and small rely on a VPN to share servers and other networked resources among multiple offices or stores across the globe. Even if you don’t have a chain of offices to worry about, you can use the same trick to connect multiple home networks or other networks for personal use.

This diagram illustrates the difference between using an unencrypted connection and using a VPN-secured Internet connection at your average coffee shop.

Third, if you’re concerned about your online privacy, connecting to an encrypted VPN while you’re on a public or untrusted network—such as a Wi-Fi hotspot in a hotel or coffee shop—is a smart, simple security practice. Because the VPN encrypts your Internet traffic, it helps to stymie other people who may be trying to snoop on your browsing via Wi-Fi to capture your passwords.

Fourth and finally, one of the best reasons to use a VPN is to circumvent regional restrictions—known as geoblocking—on certain websites. Journalists and political dissidents use VPNs to get around state-sponsored censorship all the time, but you can also use a VPN for recreational purposes, such as connecting to a British VPN to watch the BBC iPlayer outside the UK. Because your Internet traffic routes through the VPN, it looks as if you’re just another British visitor.

Pick your protocol

When choosing a networking protocol for your VPN, you need worry only about the four most popular ones. Here’s a quick rundown, including the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is the least secure VPN method, but it’s a great starting point for your first VPN because almost every operating system supports it, including Windows, Mac OS, and even mobile OSs.

Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) and Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) are more secure than PPTP and are almost as widely supported, but they are also more complicated to set up and are susceptible to the same connection issues as PPTP is.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN systems provide the same level of security that you trust when you log on to banking sites and other sensitive domains. Most SSL VPNs are referred to as “clientless,” since you don’t need to be running a dedicated VPN client to connect to one of them. They’re my favorite kind of VPN because the connection happens via a Web browser and thus is easier and more reliable to use than PPTP, L2TP, or IPsec.

An SSL VPN server is designed to be accessed via Web browser and creates encrypted channels so that you can safely access the server from anywhere.

OpenVPN is exactly what it sounds like: an open-source VPN system that’s based on SSL code. It’s free and secure, and it doesn’t suffer from connection issues, but using OpenVPN does require you to install a client since Windows, Mac OS X, and mobile devices don’t natively support it.

In short: When in doubt, try to use SSL or OpenVPN. Keep in mind that some of the services highlighted in the next section don’t use these protocols. Instead, they use their own proprietary VPN technology.

Now, let’s talk about how to create and connect to your own VPN. If you want simple remote access to a single computer, consider using the VPN software built into Windows. If you’d like to network multiple computers together quickly through a VPN, consider installing stand-alone VPN server software.

If you need a more reliable and robust arrangement (one that also supports site-to-site connections), consider using a dedicated VPN router. And if you just want to use a VPN to secure your Internet traffic while you’re on public Wi-Fi hotspots and other untrusted networks—or to access regionally restricted sites—consider subscribing to a third-party hosted VPN provider.

Set up a simple VPN with Windows

You can use this client to connect securely to other Windows computers or to other VPN servers that support the PPTP and L2TP/IPsec protocols—you just need to provide the IP address or domain name of the VPN server to which you want to connect. If you’re connecting to a corporate or commercial VPN, you can contact the administrator to learn the proper IP address. If you’re running your own VPN server via Windows, you can figure out the server’s IP address by typing CMD in the Search charm, launching the Command Prompt, and typing ipconfig. This simple trick comes in handy when you’re setting up your Windows PC as a VPN server, and then connecting to it so that you can securely, remotely access your files from anywhere.

Windows has a built-in VPN client, but you’ll need to provide the connection information (namely, the IP address) for the VPN server you want to use.

Quick note: When setting up incoming PPTP VPN connections in Windows, you must configure your network router to forward VPN traffic to the Windows computer you want to access remotely. You can do this by logging in to the router’s control panel—consult the manufacturer’s instructions on how to do this—and configuring the port-forwarding or virtual-server settings to forward port 1723 to the IP address of the computer you wish to access. In addition, PPTP or VPN pass-through options need to be enabled in the firewall settings, but usually they’re switched on by default.

If you’re using Windows 7 and you need to connect to a VPN or to accept incoming VPN connections in that OS, check out our guide to setting up a VPN in Windows 7.
