Lenovo Launches IdeaPad S540 Comet Lake Laptop, IdeaCentre A540 AIO, And 34-Inch 144Hz Gaming Monitor
Lenovo is filling out its consumer PC lineup with some updated models today, including a notebook with Intel’s latest 10th generation Core processors. The company has announced a new 13-inch notebook, two new all-one-PCs, and a new gaming monitor.
First on the docket is the IdeaPad S540, which features a 13-inch QHD (2560x1600) display rated at 300 nits. Lenovo is giving customers a choice of AMD Ryzen 7 processors or Intel's new 10th generation Core processor (Comet Lake) up to a hex-core Core i7-10710U. For systems equipped with Intel processors, you can either opt for the integrated Intel graphics or an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete GPU. Memory configurations top out at 16GB, while PCIe SSD options max out at 1TB.
Lenovo says that the 2.62-pound IdeaPad S540 can last up to 16 hours per charge and will be priced from $999.99 when it launches next month.
Next up is the IdeaCentre A540 all-in-one PC, which is available in two screen sizes: 24-inches and 27-inches. The former features a FHD resolution (1920x1080) display while the latter comes in with a QHD display (2560x1440). On the 24-inch model, Lenovo is making available both AMD Ryzen and 9thgeneration Intel Core processors (up to a Core i7) along with AMD Radeon RX 540X discrete graphics. The 27-inch model is available exclusively with 9thgeneration Intel Core processors and can be had with Radeon RX 560X discrete graphics.
Memory configurations start at a meager 4GB and hit 16GB in high-end SKUs, while dual storage options are available with up to a 1TB SSD and up to a 2TB HDD. The 24-inch and 27-inch IdeaCentre A540 all-in-one desktops arrive in September priced from $799.99 and $1,299.99 respectively.
Finally, we come to the G34w Gaming Monitor, which as its name implies measures 34-inches diagonally. It offers a 21:9 aspect ratio, 1500R curvature, and a WQHD resolution, and a 144Hz refresh rate. The Lenovo G34w Gaming Monitor is priced at $479.99, and unfortunately won't be available until February 2020.
