has already announced
its new lineup of smartphones ahead of CES, and now the company is pulling back the curtain on the rest of its computing devices. The list is rather long and consists of new laptops, multimode devices, displays, and some intriguing products that include an Android
desktop and a home cloud solution.
There are two Miix tablets, one a 10-incher ($499) and the other an 11-inch model ($699). The former boasts a quad-core Intel
Atom processor and a 1920x1200 multitouch display, as well as 128GB of eMMC storage and JBL surround sound speakers. The device offers WiFi and optional 3G for connectivity, and there are front (720p HD, 2MP) and rear (5MO) cameras.
The larger tablet has a more impressive processor with an Intel Core i5 chip, the same 1920x1200 display mentioned above, and up to a 256GB SSD. It also has WiFi and optional 3G as well as front and rear HD cameras, and both tablets run Windows 8.1.
Lenovo Yoga 2
The 11-inch Yoga 2, starting at $529, has a quad-core Intel Pentium processor and a 500GB HDD. There’s also a 13-inch Yoga 2 (starts at $999) with an Intel Core i5 processor and a 1920x1200 display that offers a 500GB HDD or SSHD.
Rounding out the multimode device lineup is the Flex 14D and 15D (both starting at $499), a pair of convertible laptops that offer quad-core AMD
A6 processors, AMD Radeon graphics, and Dolby Advanced Audio.
There’s a new tablet on the block in the Lenovo ThinkPad 8 ($449). The 8.3-inch (1920x1200) device has an Intel Bay Trail processor, up to 128GB storage, Windows 8, and LTE connectivity.
Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon
And laptops? There are laptops, and how. Lenovo has 14- and a 15.6-inch Y-series laptops (starting at $999) with up to Intel Core i7 processors, Windows 8.1, and HDD or SSD options. The Y40 also offers AMD Radeon graphics while the Y50 has NVIDIA
GeForce options; the latter device also boasts a display resolution of 3840x2160.
The Z40 and Z50 lightweight notebooks offer 1920x1080 displays, Intel Core i7 processors, optional NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and they run Windows
8.1. Users can opt for 1TB HDD or SSHD storage, and they have 802.11ac WiFi, WiDi, HDMI out, facial recognition technology, and motion control technology.
Lenovo also announced the 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultrabook (starting at $1,299), which features carbon fiber construction, an adaptive keyboard, voice and gesture control, and the special ThinkPad OneLink Dock Pro docking solution.
Lenovo ThinkVision 28
Lenovo has two new displays: the ThinkVision Pro2840m ($799), a 28-inch 4k monitor, and the ThinkVision 28. The former offers a resolution of 3840x2160 with 300-nit brightness and 5ms response time. It has dual speakers with DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, and several USB ports.
The ThinkVision 28 ($999) is an interesting product, as it operates as both a monitor and an AIO. It has a 4K resolution with 10-point multitouch with multiple USB ports, three HDMI ports, a microSD slot, DisplayPort, Ethernet port, and more, but it will also switch to being its own Android 4.3-based AIO. In Android mode, it runs on an NVIDIA Tegra chip with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, Miracast software, and Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
Lenovo N308 AIO
Further down the all-in-one rabbit hole, Lenovo has a few more. The Lenovo N308 ($450) is being billed as an “Android Home Computer” and offers a 19.5-inch (1600x900 resolution) display and Android 4.2. There’s a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra processor, up to a 500GB HDD, a 720p HD webcam, and WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity.
The 23-inch (1920x1080) Lenovo C560 AIO ($659) runs Windows 8.1 and offers Intel Core i7 processors, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and 2TB of storage. There’s also a TV tuner on board.
Finally, there’s the Lenovo A740 (starts at $1,499) and the Horizon 2 Tablet PC (starts at $1,499). The A740 is a 27-inch AIO with a 2560x1440 display and up to NVIDIA GeForce graphics. It runs Windows 8.1 and offers 10-point multitouch, built-in voice and motion control, 1TB HDD, NFC, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, and an optional TV tuner.
The Horizon 2 is also 27 inches and is designed in part to display content from mobile devices. It lays completely flat (hence the “table” in the name) and it runs Windows 8.1. An Intel Core i7 processor is inside, too.
The last of the very large group of Lenovo products is the Beacon personal cloud storage. The device is designed to allow users to play their media anywhere, whether they’re using a mobile device, PC, or TV. With up to 6TB of files stashed on board, Beacon serves up files not unlike a NAS, but with more powerful features and with ostensibly easier setup and management. There’s an Intel Atom processor inside.
