CES 2023: Lenovo’s lineup includes ThinkBook Plus Twist, Legion gaming PCs and more
At CES 2023, Lenovo introduced an array of Windows 11 PCs to satisfy both personal and professional demands and needs. With Windows 11’s latest update, you’ll be able to tap into features such as Focus sessions, snap layouts that make it easier to get things done and the new Microsoft Defender SmartScreen to keep you safer on the web.
The ThinkBook Plus Twist is an eye-catching new addition to Lenovo’s lineup, with a dual rotating display that features an OLED panel on one side and a color e-Ink screen on the other. Such a setup makes it easy to draft, edit and proofread documents via the keyboard or the pen. The e-Ink display reduces eye strain and can also stay powered on longer between charging. For more advanced document or image workflows, users can switch to the OLED tablet mode and use the pen on the vivid 400nit 2.8K display, which also works well for high-definition video conferencing along with the FHD camera and dual microphones that have smart noise cancellation to reduce ambient noise. And after work, watch your favorite show streaming on the OLED tablet mode or catch up on reading on the e-Ink tablet.
The ThinkBook Plus Twist reiterates the innovative nature of ThinkBook Plus portfolio, and includes the latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors, Wi-Fi 6E that improves wireless connectivity performance and stability on supported networks, and full-size pen support with up to 1,000 hours battery life.
With the dual screen technology of the Yoga Book 9i, you can surf the web and look at images across two full screens. Powered by up to the latest generation of Intel Core CPU processors, it’s a laptop on which multitaskers can work on separate files simultaneously on different screens. Or watch a video on one screen while taking notes or researching on the second screen at the same time. Switch seamlessly between laptop, tablet or tent mode. In a face-to-face meeting, users can use the tent mode to display a slide presentation on one screen while viewing and controlling the presentation from the second screen. In virtual meetings, hosts can share a presentation on one screen while viewing the chat, responding to questions and advancing slides from the second screen. This PC also comes with a folio stand, detachable Bluetooth keyboard and Smart Pen stylus to help you work on the go more easily.
Lenovo’s screen reorientations were done in collaboration with Microsoft to further enhance the potential to work, learn, stream, create and do light gaming.
The Yoga AIO 9i is an all-in-one space saving desktop PC that makes a big impression immediately with its 31.5-inch, three-side borderless, 4K 100% sRGB display, which sits in a slim panel with metallic hinge to tilt to the angles you want. The air-ventilated base includes seven ports on its rear for better cable management, as well as a built-in wireless smartphone charger. With up to the latest Intel Core i9 processors that can be paired with NVIDIA graphics, it is powerful enough to handle graphic design with ease, as well as heavy photo/video editing and light gaming. It also comes with four speakers from Harman Kardon, Dolby Atmos spatial audio and an integrated 5M infrared (IR) webcam with a built-in electric shutter and smart login capabilities.
Lenovo has developed an AI chip for its Lenovo Legion Pro Series of gaming laptops. The chip uses software machine learning, deployed through Lenovo Vantage, to help monitor in-game FPS and dynamically adjust for the highest performance output. The newest generation comes equipped with the latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors or AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors, and up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop GPUs. Both GPU and CPU are kept cool with ColdFront 5.0, Lenovo Legion’s heat management system, to conduct heat away from the processors and expel it through the massive exhaust vents on the rear and sides of the chassis.
For those who prefer desktop stations, the Lenovo Legion Tower 7i is ready to take on the toughest battles with the latest 13th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPU options that deliver top-of-the-line framerates. With up to 64GB of 5600Mhz DDR5 RAM to edge out the competition, gaming performance is snappier even under intense multitasking loads.
Every Lenovo Legion device comes with Windows 11 installed, as well as a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate*, so gamers can jump into the fray from the get-go.
Lenovo debuted another head-turner at CES: the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola. Microsoft worked with Motorola (a Lenovo company) to bring Microsoft productivity experiences to Motorola’s commercial customers. This mobile phone, which runs on Android, provides an easy way to keep up with your work life from anywhere when you’re without your laptop. It comes preloaded with the apps you use daily: Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, Outlook and OneDrive. In the coming months, ThinkPhone’s red button will also include the ability to activate a Teams walkie-talkie feature. And Motorola and Microsoft are working together to make it easier for employees to be more productive from anywhere by streaming the Windows 10 or 11 desktop directly from ThinkPhone devices.
