Lenovo debuts IdeaPad Yoga Notebook, IdeaCentre A720 all-in-one PC

A720_11

Continuing its onslaught of new products at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Lenovo announced today the new Widows 8-based IdeaPad Yoga notebook, and the IdeaCentre A720 all-in-one PC. This marks Lenovo’s 1,345,908th release at this CES 2012, by our most recent count. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But the company certainly appears to have taken the approach that “more is better” when it comes to new models.

Sporting a flexible design, the 13.3-inch IdeaPad Yoga isn’t just another laptop thanks to Lenovo’s patented dual-hinged screen that is able to flip 360-degrees to become a tablet. Users can also flip it slightly less, making it possible to stand up the screen for watching movies or Power Point presentations.

The Yoga’s screen measures 13.1-inches, with a 1600×900 resolution and 10-point capacitive touch capabilities. Lenovo boasts that the IdeaPad Yoga is the world’s lightest and thinnest convertible ultrabook, measuring 16.9mm thick (which, compared to other ultrabooks, isn’t really that thin), and weighing in at only 3.1 pounds.

Powering the Yoga is Intel’s line of Core CPUs. The device will also pack upto 8GB of RAM and an SSD with up to 256GB of storage. The Yoga will run on Microsoft’s touch-centric Windows 8 operating system.

The Yoga will retail for an estimated starting price of $1,199

Check out our full review of the  Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 all-in-one PC

Adding to Lenovo’s ballooning line of all-in-one PCs is the IdeaCentre A720. At a mere 24.5mm thick, Lenovo advertises the A720 as the world’s thinnest 27-inch all-in-one, with a frameless display that features 10-point multi-touch.

Like other all-in-one’s from Lenovo, the A720 is intended to serve as a central media hub for super-connected homes. So rather than just use it as a regular PC, the A720 can be placed in the kitchen or living room, and serve as a display for watching television, or browsing the Web in a social setting. To help make this process less awkward, the A720 has an adjustable screen position that can rotate from negative-5-degrees to 90-degrees.

Inside, Lenovo offers the A720 with Intel’s Core processors, up to the Core i7. Other hardware specs include a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 2GB graphics card, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, and up to 1TB of HDD storage, or 64GB of SSD storage.

Lenovo expects the A720 to sell for a starting price of $1,299. Both the Yoga and the A720 will be available sometime in the first half of this year.
