PRESS RELEASE

August 29, 2019 – Ahead of IFA, one of the world’s largest consumer electronics shows, Lenovo unveiled its latest consumer lineup for 2019. Each one exemplifies a smarter device at accessible price points made for mainstream shoppers this holiday season. Equipped with intelligent features, they span laptops, monitors, tablets, and an all-in-one desktop that’s turning heads and enabling better experiences. 

When the personal devices we rely on to keep us connected, entertained and more productive get smarter, we may first notice the added convenience. By engineering intuitive, adaptive, time-saving features, we’re showing how smart products are improving the quality of life and wellbeing for people. Here are some of the latest innovations showcasing atTech Life, Lenovo’s annual holiday event during IFA. 

Ultra-Slim Meets Ultra Smart 

When you need a thin and light, reliable laptop that works great and won’t break the bank, the two new 13-inch Windows 10 Lenovo IdeaPad™ laptops with up to 10th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors and memory upgrade of up to 16GB DDR4 are engineered to help you fly through your online tasks—giving you more time to watch your favorite shows with up to an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 GPU.

At just 1.3kg (2.8lbs), the 13-inch Lenovo IdeaPad S340 is the smart value choice, available in three fun colors, designed to fit conveniently in your bag. With Dolby Audio™, front-facing microphones and quieter, intelligent fan thermals – your laptop stays charged longer with up to 8 hours2 of battery life and stays cooler than before.

The ultra-slim, all-aluminum Lenovo IdeaPad S540 is a step up with a high-quality QHD display option, Dolby Audio and your choice of three cool hues. Ready for anything, the IdeaPad S540 has RapidCharge3, plus Cortana and Alexa voice service capabilities4. Powered by up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen™ 7 processors, this cutting-edge device uses Windows Hello and its motion-sensing IR camera for smarter interaction and hands-free user log-in with biometric authentication. 

Manually direct power and performance modes based on your needs with Lenovo’s exclusive Q-Control5 feature. So how does this unique AI feature work? When enabled, Q-Control uses machine learning to monitor the tasks running in the background and your device’s thermal attributes to control its fans and optimize a longer battery life on its own. For example, movie watchers will appreciate the lower power mode with quieter fan, while content creators will enjoy the turbo-boosting mode for a quicker computing response. 

Nature-Inspired, Built for Intense Workloads

Beautifully-designed to emulate the balanced asymmetry of a Cypress tree, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A540 is a new stylish all-in-one Windows 10 desktop design with high-resolution screen offered in two sizes, 24-inch and 27-inch. Its smart, functional base wirelessly charges your Qi®-certified mobile device6—even if your PC is switched off. The IdeaCentre A540’s metallic steel stand curves slightly and adds chic modern pop of design to any workspace. Its clever pull-out IR camera comes with an integrated TrueBlock Privacy shutter for an extra layer of security, while a narrow bezel design and rear cable collector gives this showstopper desktop a clutter-free, sleek look.

With up to 9th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and discrete AMD Radeon™ RX560 graphics, the IdeaCentre A540 27-inch model has a high-resolution QHD display option that provides vivid color while JBL® by Harman® speakers deliver crisp stereo sound powered by Dolby Audio. An AMD Ryzen™ CPU option is also available on the 24-inch model, and 10-point touchscreen is optional on either display size.

Digital Companions You’ll Flip Over

For those who prefer a different OS, the new Lenovo Chromebook™ laptops are smart buys and incredibly user-friendly. Requiring no setup, just login with your Google® account and explore a new world of intuitive computing experiences with millions of apps available on Google Play™.

Built for fashion, function and more fun on-the-go, creative types can express their personal style with up to five color choices in a variety of screen sizes.  

The new slim 2-in-1 laptop that packs a ton of smart Chrome OS features into an amazingly portable package is the Lenovo Chromebook C340, which comes in an 11-inch size – smaller than a piece of A4 printer paper. Available in Sand Pink or Platinum Grey with a flexible 360-hinge and touchscreen, flip your Lenovo Chromebook C340 virtually any angle for work or entertainment. Or go bigger with the 15-inch model with more storage (up to 128 GB eMMC), convenient numeric keypad, optional backlit keyboard and up to an Intel Core i3 mobile processor. Chromebooks can sync with your Android™ tablets and phones via your Google account to safely store your content locally or in the cloud.

Looking for a laptop on lightning-fast Chrome OS that’s the best of both worlds? Try the new Lenovo Chromebook S340 with optional Intel processors, built-in virus protection, and a battery life of up to 10 hours on a single charge7, this slim laptop is designed to let you run nearly all your favorite apps at the same time. Its 14-inch FHD IPS touchscreen display with narrow bezel lets you see the big picture without weighing you down at just 1.4kg (3lbs) light. 

Display More Love for Your PC

You have big ideas to share and should not be limited to your laptop screen alone, so whether you need to revamp your home office or want to bring a touch of understated style to your gaming and entertainment space, Lenovo’s new consumer monitors are ideal for those who need (or want) to spend long hours in front of a screen.

The new mainstream Lenovo L28u Monitor features 28 inches of vivid color with a 4K In-Plane Switching (IPS) wide-angle display, pixel-perfect resolution, and ultra-thin bezel that’s transforming home viewing and computing. If your device has AMD Radeon graphics, help eliminate image stuttering and screen tearing for smoother gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync™ technology8. Tilt your monitor in a way that best suits your viewing angle and count on our TÜV® Rhineland Eye Comfort-certified anti-glare display that minimizes eye fatigue.

Everyone knows the smarter gamer has higher-performing gear—and it’s hard to beat a gaming monitor with1500R curvature and an ultra-wide, industry-leading 21:9 aspect ratio. Impressive to movie buffs and avid gamers alike, the epic Lenovo G34w Gaming Monitor is a behemoth of a performer with a 34-inch panoramic Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) display that provides an astounding level of clarity for a supersized experience.

Smarter Sharing is for the Family

Lenovo is releasing the second generation of its mainstream Android tablets, the Lenovo Tab M7 and Lenovo Tab M8 with Wi-Fi and LTE options. Perfect for millennial households that want to stay connected, within budget, and highly-entertained with stunning multimedia options, these tablets have a full metal cover design for a premium look and feel—and now, we’ve made them easier to share with your youngest family members.

Lenovo is enabling families to make smarter decisions on which tablets to choose for sharing with Kid’s Mode 3.0; families can now provide each child with their own independent account that’s customized for that child’s preferences and tastes, with age appropriate apps and rich content, such as fun games, songs, books and audiobooks.

The Lenovo Tab M8 offers up to 12 hours of video playback9, and the Tab M7 offers full-day usage with up to 10 hours of video playback time.And the new Lenovo M series tablets are also TÜV Rheinland certified, offering true eye care protection through special light and display technologies that reduces harmful blue light to reduce strain on the eyes—so the fun never has to end.
