Mix and match components to get the functionality you need, in a small, highly portable package. That’s the hook with the Lenovo Thinkpad Stack. The four elements in the Stack are an access point, a Bluetooth speaker, a 1TB hard drive, and a power bank. The modules are small, about the size of a pocketable portable drive, and click together magnetically to form a single package. Need a long-life Bluetooth speaker? Try two power banks and the speaker component. Swap out the speaker for the hard drive and access point, and you’ve got a media server. Modules can be stacked in any order.
The entire Stack goes for $299, or $90 for the speaker, $50 for the power bank, and the access point and hard drive are sold together for $200. They’ll start shipping in April.
