As expected, Lenovo is all set to make its own technological announcements in the coming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week. The PC manufacturer plans to announce a number of new Windows 8.1 machines. It has a new lineup of ultrabooks and tablets that would surely catch interest.
The new systems would be mostly portable. Those may indicate that Lenovo is never stopping to develop and create PCs that would not just be interesting but also more useful to a greater range of consumers in the market. Here are some of the new Lenovo devices to be introduced this week.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon logically serves as an updated version of the premium ultrabook from Lenovo. It is the third generation of the line. Just like its predecessors, it is built with carbon fiber for added strength without the usual weight of magnesium and aluminum. As a lightweight ultrabook, it only weighs 2.8 pounds. It also has 14 inches of screen, nine-hour battery life span, and optional 4G connectivity. This PC would hit the market starting this month at a price range starting at $1,299.
ThinkPad 8 is obviously a Windows 8.1 tablet with an 8.3-inch display. It is made with Intel Bay Trail quad-core processor and about 128GB of SSD storage. It also comes with Micro USB 3.0 along with optional LTE networking. This tablet comes with display of 1,920 X 1,200 pixels of resolution. The model could be optionally equipped with a traditional keyboard accessory to resemble traditional desktop functionality. It will also be released later this month at a price range of between $399 and $429.
New Yoga and IdeaPad
Lenovo Yoga 2 is an updated PC in the Yoga line. It comes in two different models: the one with 11-display and the other in a 13-inch screen. Both models come with the complete range of motion present in other models. The 11-inch version would be released in the market this month at a price tag starting at $529. The 13-inch Yoga 2 would be retailed in February at $999 and higher.
The company is also set to launch AMD-powered versions of Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 and 15 laptops. The Flex 14D and the Flex 15D laptops could be rotated from laptop to stand mode. Those could lack Tent and Tablet modes inherent in the Yoga 2 line. Both versions are already available in the market at a price range starting at $499.
