Lenovo’s revolutionized Yoga PCs blend elevated design with sustainability

News Desk -


Lenovo debuted its iconic 360-degree flexible hinge design on the world’s first multi-mode Yoga 2-in-1 laptop at CES® ten years ago, and it revolutionized the industry. Designed for versatility and portability as users flip-and-fold from work to play, the exquisite style of Lenovo Yoga continues to delight. Now, more than a decade later, the Yoga spans and expands beyond form factors, offering daring innovation and precise craftsmanship to users in a world where they can work, learn, and play from anywhere.

Lenovo, the world leader in PCs1, introduced its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops, which include the Lenovo Yoga 9i, a 14-inch premium convertible laptop, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 constructed with recycled materials. Lenovo also launched three new Q-series consumer monitors at CES this year, the Lenovo Q27h-20, Lenovo Q27q-20, and Lenovo Q24i-20, that flawlessly mix elegance and functionality.

Whether consumers require a fully-equipped multimedia experience while playing, learning, binge-watching shows, paying bills, or creating content with robust Windows 11 performance, Lenovo’s current collection of PCs has them all covered. With integrated smart capabilities like Show Mode for PC2 from Alexa®, another Lenovo first, the new Yoga PCs can even remind people of what’s on their shopping list while they’re headed out. This year’s highlight for the Yoga portfolio is the launch of Lenovo’s innovative CO2 Offset Service, which will now allow consumers, not just businesses, to offset the environmental impacts of their Lenovo YogaPC and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Lenovo looks to the future by giving its consumer design language a sleek update as we commemorate the 10th anniversary of a true original that turned personal computing on its head. Yoga’s minimalist-meets-luxury style represents a dramatic change towards humanised forms and expressive aesthetics, delivering a bespoke modern experience. This visually-uniquestyle doesn’t cut corners with its new vertically-flipped brand treatment; instead, it rounds them into comfortably-curved edges and ushers in a gender-neutral colour palette, more recycled materials, and luxury finishes. Lenovo’s aim of pioneering and delivering ‘s marter tech for all’ – with an emphasis on sustainable and inclusive design – remains unwaveringly positive about prospering in the next reality.

Premium Pushes your Entertainment to the Max – Yoga 9i

Lenovo releases a new class of Yoga 2-in-1s with smarter technology built-in every year to deliver the immersive experiences people need to improve their workday and free time, and this year is no different.

The most significant update to the Yoga 9i may be the most subtle. This convertible also brings productivity innovations to the market, including easier one-handed opening for multitasking convenience and an untraditional edge-to-edge keyboard design layout with a bar of new 1-Click Function Keys and five additional shortcut keys marked with user-friendly icons for quick access to frequently used features, such as:

• A shortcut to entering Smart Power performance mode, which allows for faster performance or longer battery life depending on what you’re doing – without having to remember the prior Fn+Q key combination.

• The clever Background Blurfunction that instantly helps to protect the privacy of one’s surroundings during video calls via Microsoft Teams or other collaboration platforms with just a click; to show a clear image of you and your background again, simply press the key again.

• Lenovo’s design and engineering teams had the unique chance to add a better sound bar to the Yoga 9i’s 360-degree hinge. Vibe Check is an audio mode switching function key that lets users better discern variations between subtle audio profiles for a more pleasurable listening experience for almost any sort of entertainment. Choose from music mode, game mode, or movie mode for a more immersive sound experience that doesn’t detract from the overall atmosphere.

• In addition to smart sense lighting, which automatically adjusts the keyboard’s backlighting based on environmental light, the Color modekey allows users to quickly switch between dark and light modes via Windows’ native colour settings function to test which works best.Besides giving your eyes a break, enabling dark mode foran OLED display can potentially help preserve the life of the battery, and it comes in handy in low-lit environments.

• The Fingerprint reader was put here instead of where your wrists generally strike the palm rest for greater comfort and a cleaner appearance in the same column of keys. A FHD infrared (IR) camera with smart login and electronic privacy shutter is also included.

Lenovo CO2 Offset Service – Now for Consumers!

Lenovo presents its CO2 Offset Service for consumers, which will launch first on all Lenovo LegionTM and Yoga PCs, including those launched today, for users who wish to go a step further and actively contribute back to the environment. Lenovo assessed the average carbon emissions of its PCs across their lifecycle, from manufacture and shipment to use, to provide people with an easy and transparent approach to compensate for the environmental effect of their purchased item. Users can opt in and make a donation based on the cost of those emissions to one of several different United Nations Climate Action programmes, such as those that help improve renewable energy, reduce air pollution, or increase waste safety, at the point of purchase.

Lenovo has helped commercial companies offset more than 500,000metric tonnes of carbon dioxide since starting this service internationally in January 2021, the equivalent of greenhouse gas released by more than 100,000 passenger vehicles driven for a year. 9Now, with the opening of this service to the consumer market, Yoga and Lenovo Legion customers who want to address climate change through CO2 compensation may do so in a straightforward and transparent way at the touch of a button.
