Mobile World Congress 2018: Five things you can do with Lenovo’s two new Windows 10 PCs

By / Editor, Windows Blog

This week at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo introduced their newest 2-in-1s: the new Yoga 730 (in 13-inch and 15-inch models) and the new 14-inch Flex 14. These new devices will start to become available at select retailers this April and range in price from $599-$899.6

Here’s five ways they make working on-the-go easier than ever:

Lenovo Yoga 730

#1: Take one with you – they’re convertible and lighter than ever

The new Windows 10 convertibles are lighter than before, so you can easily take them with you wherever you go. Shedding 13 percent of its weight, the 15-inch Yoga 730 is just 1.89 kg (4.17 lbs) and 1.12 kg (2.47 lbs) for the even more compact 13-inch model. At 1.6 kg (3.53 lbs), the 14-inch Flex 14 won’t weigh your bag down, either – it’s 11 percent thinner than before at just 17.6mm (0.69 in).

#2: Save time & effort with Cortana

Cortana[1]  is available on your Yoga 730 to help you with everyday tasks by just using your voice[2]. Say “Hey, Cortana,” and she’s ready to provide you with helpful information, check your calendar[3], give you a preview of your day across work and life, and take care of everyday tasks and reminders.

Fingerprint reader

#3: Log in with your fingerprint with Windows Hello

Both the Yoga 730 and Flex 14 come with a built-in fingerprint reader, so you can quickly and easily log into your device with Windows Hello. When you’re on the go, feel at ease with Lenovo Vantage and its Wi-Fi monitoring security features. Lenovo Vantage combines several apps into one to help you identify secure Wi-Fi networks, migrate files and settings from one PC to another and get system diagnostics and support.

Flex 14 2-in-1

#4: Charge your device for 15 minutes and get two hours of battery with built-in Rapid Charge[4]

The Yoga 730 offers up to 11.5 hours of battery life on the 13-inch model and up to 11 hours on the 15-inch in FHD.4 Running from meeting to meeting on a busy day? With Rapid Charge, in just 15 minutes you can get up to 2 hours of usage of your Flex 14 and 13-inch Yoga 730 to help power through your day without worrying about plugging in.[5]

#5: Write on your touchscreen with Windows Ink

The new devices come with up to a UHD touchscreen display on the Yoga 730 and a FHD touchscreen display on the Flex 14, with razor-thin borders, so you can swipe, pinch and tap to browse the web with Microsoft Edge. You can also use the optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 with 4,096 levels of sensitivity to write, draw or annotate with Windows Ink for a pen-on-paper experience.
