Lenovo Shows How Smarter Does More for Consumers at IFA

Lenovo unveiled its latest consumer lineup at IFA 2019. Each one is an example of a smarter device at accessible price points made for mainstream shoppers this holiday season. Here’s a first look at the intelligent features set to debut on these new Lenovo devices, including 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, it might be the added convenience that’s noticed first. By engineering loads of seamlessly intuitive, adaptive features that add more value for people and saves them precious time, smart products are improving the quality of life and wellbeing for people the world-over in simple ways. 

Technology that’s innovative yet fits your needs and budget, versus the other way around—that’s how Lenovo is bringing its vision of ‘smarter technology for all’ to life. Here’s what show-goers can look forward to seeing in action at Tech Life, Lenovo’s annual holiday showcase event. 

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 all your online tasks—giving you more time to binge your favorite shows with up to an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 GPU. 

The ultra-slim, all-aluminum Lenovo IdeaPad S540 is a step up with a high-quality QHD display option, Dolby Audio Speaker System and your choice of three cool hues including White. Ready for anything, the IdeaPad S540 has RapidCharge, plus Cortana and Alexa voice service capabilities. 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-Control 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 Chinese Cypress tree, the Lenovo IdeaCentre A540 is the 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 device—even if your PC is switched off. The IdeaCentre A540’s metallic steel stand curves slightly and adds chic modern bling 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 Dolby and JBL by Harman speakers deliver crisp stereo sound. 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 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 charge, 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.
