Lenovo at CES: what’s new this year?


Every year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), also known as the tech enthusiast’s Christmas, the biggest manufacturers give a glimpse of the future. Which devices will be the latest trends, what engineers and designers have achieved, and what’s new in the productivity market? Lenovo has delighted its most ardent fans in the weeks leading up to the show by announcing what’s new this year.

Productivity-oriented laptops, futuristic and compact desktop PCs and a tablet dedicated to productive leisure. Lenovo is truly succeeding in its mission of “Smarter technology for all”, while keeping sustainability in mind. An increasing percentage of recycled materials is being incorporated into the design of new products, and Lenovo’s CO2 Offset service will now be extended to all IdeaPad and Yoga devices. In the near future, the PC manufacturer also plans to significantly expand its range of products that meet MIL-STD 810H durability standards.

Business-class laptops at budget-friendly prices – Lenovo IdeaPad is unrivaled and looks set to continue to be. The new IdeaPad Pro 5 Gen 8 comes with a number of enhancements that guarantee even greater productivity. The 14″ and 16″ diagonal IdeaPad Pro 5 Gen 8 arrives with a 25% larger touchpad than the previous generation, a FHD IR camera, USB 4.0 and Thunderbolt™ 4.0 slots, and improved cooling features. Also noteworthy is the Dynamic Display Switch solution, which delivers up to 120Hz dynamic video playback for 16″ models. With QHD+ resolution, a 16:10 aspect ratio, 100% sRGB color reproduction, and Eyesafe® vision protection features, IdeaPad claims to be the perfect option when you want an affordable device for both everyday tasks and video games.

Lenovo is also bringing similar updates to consumers on the go who want a device that’s as light and comfortable as possible. The new Gen 8 IdeaPad Slim 5 also features a larger trackpad, a FHD IR camera, and two USB Type-C slots. Along with mobility comes security solutions, with built-in camera shutters and TÜV Rheinland-certified low blue light mode for a safe work experience and less eyestrain. For those who like to work in the sun, the 14-inch model has a 400 nits brightness display with 2.2K resolution, and for those who want more screen space, there’s a 16-inch display with 2.5K resolution. And with three different design colors, the IdeaPad Slim 5i or IdeaPad Slim 5 Gen 8 will make you stand out from the crowd.

The attractive and flexible Yoga is the latest addition for those looking for an all-in-one desktop PC. Inspired by modern architecture and captivated by its minimalist design, the Yoga AIO 9i is designed for the modern workplace. Clever space-saving design and engineering solutions allow this computer to accommodate a 13th-generation Intel Core i9 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics, up to 32GB of working memory, and a 1TB hard drive. The 31.5″ diagonal monitor with 4K resolution and 100% sRGB color reproduction is significantly thinner than previous AIOs, and the sleek stand makes it easy to tilt the display to any angle you want. With a four-speaker, prestigious Harman Kardon sound system and a robust Dolby Atmos surround sound backing, a dedicated screen saver for the display camera, innovative cooling solutions, and a wide range of connectivity options, and the new Lenovo Yoga AIO 9i is set to be a serious contender in the market. What’s more, the built-in wireless charger for smartphones and other additional connections not only enhances the user experience but also provides a comfortable workstation. 

For those who value practicality, Lenovo introduces the next-generation IdeaCentre Mini (1L, 8) – a PC that fits in the palm of your hand, is stylish and powerful. The new model will be available without an external power supply and will be concealed, so you can easily find a place for it in even the smallest workstation at a weight of just 1.81 kg, with no extra cables to get in the way, and plenty of processor capacity and working memory to keep you busy. The thoughtful design means there’s no worry about adequate cooling, and the easy-to-open chassis will appeal to those looking to add more power. What’s more, the IdeaCentre Mini (1L, 8) has all the connectivity you’d expect to find in a PC – USB 3.2, USB 2.0, USB Type-C, Audio Jack, Thunderbolt 4.0, HDMI, and more.

Finally, the Lenovo Tab M9 is making its way into the tablet world this year with a range of solutions dedicated to quality leisure. With a screen diagonal of just 9 inches, you can enjoy both movie nights (Netflix content in HD, Dolby Atmos® surround sound) and books. The latter comes with a dedicated reading mode with eye-safe screen features and a wide selection of music. With up to 128GB of storage, up to 13 hours of battery life and a handy carrying case, the Lenovo Tab M9 is the perfect companion for those looking for a small but fun device.

Stay tuned for Lenovo news! It looks like there’s no shortage of them coming soon.
