It might feel like PCs have hit peak “appliance” levels, where everyone has one, but no one gets too excited about it. Unless you’re shopping for a Lenovo, where they’re constantly looking to improve the experience. Want computers with recycled components and a commitment to carbon offsets? Looking for touchscreens that can flip to regular laptops and back again? Want to go ALL SCREEN? No matter what you’re considering, Lenovo has it refreshed and ready for 2024!
Lenovo’s Yoga line is the crown jewel of their portfolio each year. It’s where they roll out their most interesting innovations and ideas, and 2024 is no exception.
All the Yoga computers will come with the new Lenovo Yoga Creator Zone, where they can access generative AI to make creating more interesting. You can add everything from a description to a text; the AI will help you bring your vision to new heights!
Of course, you need exciting hardware to access exciting software. The Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i and Yoga Pro 9i 2-in-1 lead the charge with impressive specs.
They’re both sporting MIL-STD-810H ratings, meaning they’re heat/dust/water resistant, though no one is suggesting you take these with you on a beach day. Both Yoga 9i devices will also be rocking Intel Core Ultra processors and a physical Lenovo AI Core Chip for that extra AI boost.
There are also Dolby Atmos speakers, a 5-megapixel IR camera for looking your best on Zoom, and the Yoga keyboard with 1.5mm travel.
The Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i will have a whopping 6 speakers for truly immersive sound, while the Yoga Pro 9i 2-in-1 will sport a 360-degree Bowers and Wilkins soundbar with 4 speakers as well as a Slim pen for when you’re tapping into your inner artist in tablet mode.
Both new Yoga Pros will hit this April. Yoga Pro 9i will start at $1,699.99, while Yoga Pro 9i 2-in-1 will start at $1,449.99.
The Yoga line isn’t all flagships, though. There are also the Yoga Pro 7 and 7i, which will come with either Intel Core Ultra processors or AMD Ryzen 7 under the hood.
Meanwhile, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i lives up to the name, coming in at 3 pounds but still rocking out with 4 speakers and Dolby Atmos audio.
And for convertibles fans, Yoga 7i 2-in-1 will come in 14″ and 16″ screen sizes for optimal creativity no matter how much screen real estate you need.
While the Lenovo Yoga Pro 7i will not be coming to North America, the Yoga Pro 7 hits in April starting at $1,349.99.
Also, in April, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i will start at $1,049.99, and the Yoga 7i 2-in-1 will start at $849.99 or $899.99 for the 14″ or 16″ screens, respectively.
Yoga Book 9i
Lenovo didn’t forget about their eye-popping dual-screened concept either, with a refresh on the Yoga Book 9i.
It’s the world’s first dual-screen OLED laptop, and now it will be even more powerful with Intel Core Ultra processors, a PureSight OLED 2.8K screen, and a Bowers and Wilkins soundbar.
On the software side, there’s an Enhanced Virtual Keyboard as well as AI to improve your handwriting, and a smart grouping tool to keep your apps organized.
Look for it this April starting at $1,999.99.
The IdeaPad line lands right in the sweet spot of budget and power.
IdeaPad Slim 5i clocks in at only 3.95 pounds but sports a 15.3″ screen. If you prefer a 2-in-1 for tablet and computer rolled into one package, the IdeaPad 5 and 5i will offer either AMD or Intel processors in both 14″ and 16″ screen sizes.
No matter what you need, the IdeaPad line has a device that works for you.
All the new IdeaPads will offer Lenovo AI Engine for smarter and more efficient computing, as well as Smart Wireless for better connectivity, and Smart Power for improved power drain and thermal management.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i will not be coming to North America, but the IdeaPad 5 2-in-1 will start at $729.99 for the 14″and $749.99 for the 16″, while the 5i variation will start at $759.99 for the 14″ and $809.99 for the 16″.
Lenovo Tab 11
Meanwhile, if you’re more of a tablet purist, Lenovo has you covered with the Tab 11.
It’ll feature a MediaTek Helio G88 processor, compatibility with the Lenovo Tab Pen, and the ability to work in split-screen, so you can take notes while browsing YouTube.
The 7040 mAh battery should provide up to 10 hours of streaming for when you’re really locked into binging the live-action One Piece.
Look for it this April starting at $179.99.
