Lenovo is coming to this year's CES 2021 with a rich offer, and first, a new laptop and 2-in-1 devices were announced, as well as an AIO computer and new monitors.
When it comes to laptops, IdeaPad 5G comes from Lenovo, as do IdeaPad 5 Pro / 5i Pro models. The IdeaPad 5G has a 14-inch IPS display, is powered by a Snapdragon 8cx chipset, and comes with 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The laptop has no fans and is expected to be reasonably quiet and thin.
Those who need more power will consider the new IdeaPad 5 Pro / 5i Pro models. Laptops are available in 14 and 16-inch sizes, with AMD and Intel processors. Models with Intel configuration are called IdeaPad 5i Pro and come with a processor to the Core i7 model of the 11th generation. AMD variants use Ryzen Mobile H series processors.
Regardless of the choice of CPU, the GPU is up to the NVIDIA MX450 model, with the fact that the 16-inch AMD laptop can also implement Nvidia GeForce RTX GPUs. Laptops have 16:10 aspect ratio screens. The 14-inch models have a resolution of up to 2.8K and 60Hz or 90Hz refresh, while the 16-inch models go up to 120Hz and 2.5K resolution.
The IdeaPad 5G will be available in select markets. The 16-inch IdeaPad 5 Pro model will be available from May, at a starting price of $ 1,150. The 14-inch model will be available in Europe at a price of 799 euros. The 16-inch IdeaPad 5i Pro laptop will be available in the EMEA region from March, with a price of 899 euros, while the 14-inch model will have a starting price of 699 euros.
The Yoga AiO 7 is a 27-inch All-in-One computer, featuring a rotating hinge patented by Lenovo, which can help the monitor switch between panoramic and portrait mode. The computer is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor, along with an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU.
It is possible to use integrated microphones to interact with the Amazon Alexa (or Cortana) service. The display itself has a 4K resolution and supports 99 percent DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color standards. There is also a 5MP webcam that can be hooked up or unplugged from the computer.
The Lenovo Yoga AiO 7 computer will be on sale from February in China, after which it will arrive in other markets at a starting price of 1599 dollars.
When it comes to monitors, two models from the L series were presented, with screens of 24 and 27 inches. The L24i-30 and L27e-30 have IPS panels with hidden cable management and a built-in stand for using the phone. The monitors feature Eye Comfort technology, support for AMD FreeSync, as well as refresh rates up to 75Hz via the HDMI display port. Through On-Screen Display (OSD) settings, it is possible to adjust monitor characteristics within the Lenovo Artery software platform.
Lenovo L27e-30 and L24i-30 monitors will be available from March, at prices of 190 and 160 dollars.
Finally, the Chinese company presented two interesting laptops - Lavie Mini and Lavie Pro Mobile.
The Lavie Mini is a design/prototype concept that represents a modern look at a classic netbook, which with the right accessories can be turned into a Switch-like gaming console. The Lavie Mini has an 8-inch touchscreen with 1900 x 1200p resolution, is powered by an 11th generation Intel i7-1180G7 processor, has up to 16GB LPDDR4x 4266MHz RAM, 256GB M.2 SSD, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and an optical touch sensor instead of a trackpad.
Until the Lavie Mini comes out of the concept phase, users will have to settle for the Lavie Pro Mobile model. This laptop has an Intel i7-1165G7 chipset, 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and an integrated Xe graphics card. The device has a 13.3-inch display and a 49Wh battery. Its main feature, however, is portability, weighing less than one kilogram and 1.67 centimeters thick. The price of the laptop is 1700 dollars.
