Lenovo had another busy day at IFA in Berlin today. They just announced a refresh to their ever popular ThinkPad Helix, responded to customer request for a thinner and lighter dual mode PC by showing off the Edge 15, and they announced two new devices—the HORIZON 2S/2Ea new set of table PCs, and the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23, a brand new modular all-in-one desktop.
Let’s start first with the HORIZON 2s and 2e—a pair of table PCs that are ideal for the whole family. From homework, to games, to movies, and beyond, this is a device the entire family can enjoy. The HORIZON 2s (“s” stands for slim) is 10 pounds lighter (and way easier to carry) than the original HORIZON 2. While the HORIZON 2e is a more budget friendly option boasting a 4th generation Intel Core processor and Windows 8.1.
The Edge 15 is Lenovo’s answer to customer requests for an even thinner and lighter dual mode laptop. This PC has a 15.6-inch Full HD touchscreen making it ideal for taking notes in class, surfing the web, and watching movies at home or on the go. The new Windows really brings the Edge 15 to life. You can personalize your Start screen, multitask with ease, and you can ensure that your files are always with you with OneDrive. If you are looking for a way to keep all your homework, or life organized, check out OneNote.
Now, let’s transition to the latest devices for work. Lenovo has made some awesome improvements in its already popular ThinkPad Helix. This detachable 2-in-1 is even thinner, lighter and has a better battery life than the previous model. Powered by Windows 8.1 Pro, you get business grade security, the ability to join a domain, and more.
And, last but not least is the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One 23. This nifty all-in-one desktop was designed in response to customers requesting more flexibility to mix and match Lenovo monitors and Tiny PCs. Lenovo’s ThinkCentre Tiny PC, sold separately, attaches directly to the back of the 23-inch monitor. This allows for easy hardware refreshes and repairs
All of these new devices will start to become available in October. The HORIZON 2s and 2e will be priced at $949 and $749 respectively. The ThinkPad Helix will start at $999, while the Edge 15 will start at $899, and finally, the ThinkCentre Tiny-in-one 23 will start at a very compelling $279.
