Everything is smarter these days, from our kitchens to virtual classrooms to personal home offices.
Smarter technology lets you adapt to the new normal without forgoing convenience, entertainment and
social connections, productivity and education – even at home.

Lenovo™ focuses on design and engineering advancements driven by people’s evolving everyday
experience, like wanting streamlined designs to help reduce clutter on your desk, immersive visuals to
bring home entertainment to life through an ultra-vivid picture, and more versatile devices with custom
gaming accessories to enjoy at home or on-the-go.

Today at CES®, we’re introducing a range of sleek consumer products of high-quality craftsmanship,
including:

● The innovative Yoga™ AIO 7 all-in-one desktop PC that takes up less space with a rotating
display
● Two stylishly thin consumer IPS monitors, the Lenovo L24i-30 and Lenovo L27e-30

Plus, showing off a couple of unique products created via our joint venture company with NEC
Corporation, established back in 2011:

● An upgraded LAVIE Pro Mobile laptop that’s sure to turn heads
● And the pocket-sized LAVIE MINI, the concept convertible PC offering huge possibilities and
gaming connectivity

Each of these new consumer devices are designed to make your life easier as you stay connected,
productive, and entertained all day long. Plus, we’re also rolling out the latest software updates to
Lenovo Vantage to help you personalize your computing experience even further.

 

You’ll Flip for the Flexibility of Lenovo Yoga AIO 7

When you want impressive power and premium style from an all-in-one desktop PC for your home, look
no further than the new Lenovo Yoga AIO 7 desktop with Windows 10.

Lenovo’s exclusive rotatable hinge 2 feature is here allowing you to personalize your setup, effortlessly
swivel the slim-framed display from a horizontal to full vertical position to allow for a tall and sleek window
screen with just the push of a finger. Or, tilt the viewing angle from completely flat to up to 20 degrees for
customized comfort. What’s more, with the Yoga AIO 7’s integrated wireless casting hardware, you can activate the display remotely from a tablet or smartphone without having to turn on your desktop. A future update allows you to display online shows directly to your screen transforming it into a 4K smart TV. Your content even automatically rotates on your PC’s screen for ease of use, and sharing webpages directly from your mobile device with living room viewers is a snap via casting menu options.

With an attractive soft-textured design, the user-facing JBL® Harman-certified stereo speakers are
thoughtfully placed under the rotating display to ensure powerful, immersive sound even when display is
turned vertically. The desktop’s minimalist design in a blend of Cloud Grey and Moon White hues keeps
this centerpiece contemporary and light for any home office or living space. While its color-matched and
bundled accessories, including a wireless keyboard, mouse, and detachable top-placed 5M web camera,
ensure clean lines. Charge your laptop via your Yoga AIO 7 and transfer files with one cable, plus drag
and drop files from your laptop while connected to share storage as you crank out big creative tasks.

Optimized for color gamut fans who are taking part in education and entertainment at home, as well as for
better printing results, the Yoga AIO 7 is the world’s first all-in-one desktop computer screen with a 27-
inch 4K IPS display supporting both 99 percent DCI-P3 and 99 percent Adobe RGB color standards for dazzling visuals. 3 This combination of display technology results in a wider spectrum of warmer reds and yellows, and cooler greens and cyan areas.

Crafted by Lenovo, the desktop is powered by the exceptional performance of up to AMD Ryzen™ 7
4800H Processor and paired with a NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 GPU for endless multi-tasking,
content creation, and non-stop gaming. Keeping your household in sync can be easier than ever with the
hands-free functionality of Alexa® on your PC. 4 Use the Yoga AIO 7’s built-in mics to speak to Alexa and
just with your voice set reminders, control your smart home, and play music—all without having to turn
your attention away from browsing or sending an email.

 

Lenovo L24i-30 and L27e-30 Monitors: Style that Holds your Attention (and your Smartphone)

Go ahead, take a second look; these are not your typical desktop monitors. Often placed in family rooms
with the most foot traffic, you (and everyone else) spend a lot of time looking at a monitor’s aesthetic and
screen design—so why sacrifice chic style for entertainment or productivity when you can have it all with Lenovo’s new consumer monitor series: the Lenovo L24i-30 and Lenovo L27e-30.

The premium In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels offered on both the Lenovo L24i-30 and Lenovo L27e-30
monitors can help you make the most of movies, online shopping, news, games, or your work, by delivering crisp, clean images at wide-viewing angles. And with education shifting to include more distance and hybrid learning than ever before, more teachers and students are finding out that they need larger, higher quality monitors for their virtual lessons.

Designed for functionality, both monitor stands possess hidden cable management features and an
integrated smartphone holder to help keep you more organized and your personal space tidy. Just tilt the
display for a more comfortable viewing angle and choose from two sturdy builds: either the sophisticated
all-metal stand of the new Lenovo L24i-30 that’s accented with trendy bi-color elements, or the simple
elegance of Lenovo L27e-30’s sculpted Graphite Grey stand. Each monitor is outlined in Raven Black
and crafted to be ultra-slim with a head as thin as 7.1mm and near-edgeless on three sides.

Choose the right-sized 23.8-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display on the Lenovo L24i-30 or go up a
size with the 27-inch Lenovo L27e-30. Keep your eyes feeling fresh with advanced anti-glare and Eye
Comfort technology certified by TUV Rheinland 5 to help minimize blue light and flickering throughout the
day. Both monitors come ready to support AMD FreeSync™ technology for smooth and stutter-free
gaming. 6 Plus these displays are capable of refresh rates of up to 75Hz via their HDMI input display port.

As a bonus, Lenovo offers you the convenience of personalizing the appearance, volume, and
characteristics of your monitor through the On-Screen Display (OSD) settings via the Lenovo Artery
software platform. Now, gamers, movie-lovers, or multitaskers can easily control their Lenovo monitors
to fit any at-home usage scenario.

The controller comes with all the functions you’d expect and in a familiar gaming layout, including immersive vibrations, left/right trigger buttons, and analog thumbsticks.

You can also throw your smooth gaming experience up on your big television screen for everyone to see your personal victories and winning shots by switching to TV gaming style by placing the PC onto its optional HDMI-connected Dock. 10,13 Besides an HDMI connection, the Dock provides other input/output extensions too including several USB Type-C® and -A ports. The dock can also charge the PC’s battery for a quick power boost.

An optimized lift-up hinge function also tilts your keyboard to your personal preference up to 180 degrees for an increased typing pitch of 19mm.

Built to be incredibly lightweight by top craftspeople, the thin and light laptop consists of next-gen materials that were once only used in space, such as a carbon fiber cover. Weighing at just under 889 grams (1.95lbs) with an ultraslim body of 16.7mm (0.66 inches), the LAVIE Pro Mobile offers up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7 with Intel Iris X e graphics to power true portability with a longer-lasting battery run-time of up to 10 hours 14 to allow you to work from nearly anywhere at any time, whether at home or back in the office.
