Lenovo’s Lineup from Smart Devices to Computers | CES 2019 Gio Sarmiento January 12, 2019 Geek Tech, Geeks At CES 2019, Lenovo announced their latest line up of smart devices or home use to computers for work and play. Lenovo’s new innovations are built for Intelligent Transformation, the idea of people improving their lives through the use of transformative technology – for play, work, or in the home, and the Lenovo announced at CES 2019 that their products do just that. Lenovo has partnered up with Google again to unveil the Lenovo Smart Clock with the Google Assistant. The Lenovo Smart Clock helps you unwind in the evening, kickstart your day, control your smart home and listen to your favorite music with multi-room audio grouping. The Lenovo Smart Clock adds to an ever-growing line-up that now includes the Lenovo Smart Display and the Lenovo Smart Home Essentials, further strengthening Lenovo’s continued commitment to making our daily lives easier and more productive. Collaborating this time with Amazon, Lenovo created Lenovo Smart Tabs, a new category of 2-in-1 tablets which turn into fully functioning smart screens with Amazon Alexa. With Lenovo Smart Tabs, you can now have access to a fully-featured Android tablet that can also be used as a hub for your smart home devices. Not only is it a must-have for your home, but it’s also simple to set up. Just place the Lenovo Smart Tab into the Lenovo Smart Dock, and the tablet transforms into a “Show Mode” smart screen device, with full-screen visuals and crisp, room-filling sound that complements Alexa’s responses from nearly anywhere in the room, making this new 2-in-1 tablet plus smart dock much more than the sum of its parts, opening up new and exciting ways to make homes easier to manage. AI coupled with advanced audio and display technologies is making Lenovo’s Yoga computer series their smartest yet. Whatever your profession is, the technologies in the new Yoga S940, Yoga A940, Yoga C730 with AMOLED and Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter can help you get things done faster and make life easier. The Yoga S940 ultra-slim Windows 10 laptop delivers security and privacy without sacrificing productivity and convenience thanks to an entire suite of Lenovo Smart Assist AI-enabled features. Leveraging AI, this includes the option to cancel noise and blur out distracting backgrounds during video calls. The Yoga S940 can also detect when you have left the laptop and auto-lock the display to keep others from seeing your data on it, or maybe even hacking into your social media account. It can also detect and alert you when you have someone watching from over your shoulder, or help increase productivity by shifting open windows and content to a connected external monitor, based on your where your attention is drawn to. The new Yoga S940 is also the world’s first laptop with Contour Glass that wraps around its bezels giving its already razor-thin bezels have a more streamlined look. despite the latest in technology some artist and designer friends of mine still prefer the sketching with actual pen and paper. The new Yoga A940 aims to change that opinion. Built for digital content creators, the Windows 10 Yoga A940 is a powerful creative canvas with a large 27-inch optional 4K IPS touchscreen display with Dolby Vision, which brings entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. It also has a rotating hinge that allows the display to tilt to a 25-degree drafting mode, for flexibility and stability when drawing, sketching or annotating with a digital pen. It also features the Lenovo Precision Dial, a controller that’s made for designers, photographers, and videographers to make more precise selections and adjustments to their projects. With Lenovo Smart Assist AI-enabled features, a Dolby Vision-enabled 4K wide-angle display with stunning brightness, contrast, color, and detail, and boosted by Dolby Atmos Speaker System for rich, moving audio, the Yoga A940 is the workstation for content creator’s home or workspace. Equipped with JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos which delivers immersive audio over any pair of compatible headphones, the 15-inch Yoga C730 2-in-1 convertible laptop gets an upgrade with up to a 4K AMOLED display, bringing a more vivid viewing experience with a degree of color clarity and contrast for higher-quality resolution. Its also emits less blue light meaning its easier on the eyes. The Yoga C730 also features an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, Windows Ink for digital pen input, Windows Hello for instant log-in, and the smart convenience of Cortana and Alexa.

With this in mind, Lenovo has streamlined two accessories into one with the Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter. With just one twist, it can change from an ergonomic mouse to a fully functional laser presenter.
