CES 2020: Lenovo unveils ‘world’s first 5G PC’ and special limited-edition Lenovo Ducati 5 laptop
Lenovo closed out its announcements at CES with some big reveals: what it claims as the “world’s first 5G PC”  and a special limited-edition laptop that incorporates designs inspired by the company’s partnership with Ducati.
The Lenovo Yoga 5G (shown below) is the world’s first 5G PC, which means it supports both millimeter wave full-band and sub-6GHz 5G networks, so it’s capable of satisfying your need for speed with ultra-fast connectivity, reduced latency and wider bandwidth. Download large files nearly instantly or stream a high-resolution video with true Full HD clarity even in highly populated areas like airports with 5G . First previewed at COMPUTEX, this ultra-portable 2-in-1 laptop is the first-ever PC powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx 5G Compute Platform, bringing you high-speed 5G network connectivity that’s up to 10 times faster than 4G through a service provider  when on the move and reliable Wi-Fi access at home. Need to edit video footage in real-time on set and then upload the finished film? Or how about faster screen refreshes for smoother mobile gaming? It’s all possible with lightning-fast download speeds supported by nine built-in antennas for a stronger signal. It’s also super-light at 2.86lbs (1.3kg).
The new premium Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 laptop (shown below) comes in two ultraslim sizes: 14-inch or 15-inch. Both options have Windows 10 and the convenience of the exclusive Lenovo Q-Control Intelligent Cooling feature that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize battery life by an average of up to 20% . Even more AI-enabled features are offered via Lenovo Smart Assist on the Yoga Slim 7, including a boost to attention-sensing functionality from Glance by Mirametrix. It has up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 with Intel Iris Plus graphics. It also includes hands-free login and auto-logoff via IR camera and Windows Hello, plus an adjustable Smart Battery that transitions capability based on usage behavior, temperature and whether the device is plugged in.

Two years ago, Lenovo brought its smarter technology to the racetrack by becoming the key technology partner of Ducati. Lenovo’s branding can be seen on Ducati racing bikes and MotoGP riders’ uniforms, and now, for the first time, Ducati’s branding will be on the special edition thin and light laptop: The Lenovo Ducati 5.
It’s got wrap-around racing stripes, a colorful gift box and companion carrying sleeve with an emblazoned Ducati shield.
“These devices feel special, almost custom-built. And with only 12,000 machines in this limited-edition made, it’s tailored for the biggest Ducati fans,” says Brian Leonard, Lenovo Intelligent Devices Group’s vice president of Design. “As a team, we spent our time concerned with which aesthetics were going to resonate well with fans of Ducati and Lenovo – a design that fused the two brands. A look and feel that was understated but special to allow diehard Ducati fans to appreciate the quality of the finishes and unique details.”
Among those details: Notebook colors inspired by one of the Panigale street bikes, the special stitching pattern on the sleeve that matches the detailing on Ducati’s bike seats and typeface used to stamp individual serial numbers on the bottom laptop covers and on the commemorative cards is the same one Ducati uses to mark its collector edition bike parts.
