With a full range of intelligent features, the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga S740 is designed to help people save time.

You can even opt to blur your background during video calls, so your cat doesn’t make a surprise appearance during your next online brainstorm. This device will also have a new child safety setting that reminds kids to limit their screen viewing time in one sitting.
