Lenovo unveils new selection of YOGA PCs

Lenovo has unveiled a new line of YOGA PCs that have been developed with Windows 10 in mind.

“Windows 10 was designed to help people do great things, and these new Lenovo YOGA devices were built to maximise Windows 10’s incredible features,” said Joe Belifore, the corporate vice president of Microsoft’s operating systems group. “We worked closely behind the scenes with Lenovo to ensure its new products really brought to life the best of Windows 10, and we’re excited to see customers’ reactions to these new YOGA PCs.”

The Lenovo YOGA 900 Convertible Laptop features four usage modes – laptop, stand, tent, and tablet. This means users can interact with their device in a number of ways and settings. 

The device includes a 13.3-inch display and Dolby DS1.0-certified JBL stereo speakers, enabling users to make the most of digital content. 

The Lenovo YOGA Home 900 Portable All-in-One Desktop offers a full desktop computing experience while also designed for enhanced portability. With an Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce 940A 2 GB video card, the new release offers desktop-standard performance no matter where users are. 

An enhanced AURA 3.0 interface lets users easily access photos, videos and apps, and Belifore describes the device as a ‘family entertainment centre, an artist’s creative canvas, and an educational learning tool, all in one.’

One notable collaboration example between Microsoft and Lenovo is Cortana with REACHit feature, which combines Cortana’s personal assistant capabilities with REACHit’s ability to search content across devices and major cloud services. 

Belifore said: “Together, we’re transforming the way people access stored content – they can use natural language queries via voice or text to search for photos, videos, files or emails stored across different calendars, email services, Windows 10 devices, as well as content stored on different services like OneDrive, Dropbox, Baidu, Google Drive, Exchange, or Gmail.”

Both the Yoga 900 Convertible Laptop and YOGA Home 900 Portable All-in-One Desktop will be available in the US before the end of October.
