So far ahead of IFA, Lenovo has announced new ThinkPads, mainstream Windows 10 PCs, and mainstream Chromebooks and Android tablets. Today, the firm made its last chapter of product announcements, and those include premium PCs, among other things like a new Marvel AR game.
At the top of the lineup is the Yoga C940. Most notably, it adopts the beautiful design of the Yoga S940, adding the reverse notch to the top with extra sensors, and narrow bezels. It still keeps parts of last year's Yoga C930 though, such as the rotating Dolby Atmos soundbar in the hinge.
For the first time, the C940 comes in 14- and 15-inch sizes, and they're both offered in 4K Dolby Vision or FHD. The internals are different though. The 14-inch model comes with Intel's new 10th-generation, 10nm 'Ice Lake' processors and integrated graphics. The 15.6-inch model, however, comes with a 45W H-series processor from Intel's ninth-generation lineup (there are no 10th-gen H-series chips just yet), up to a Core i9, and it has an option for Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, just in case you want a ton of power in a convertible.
The next tier down is the Yoga C740, which also comes in 14- and 15-inch sizes. The screen is 1080p with Dolby Vision, it includes Intel's 10th-generation, 14nm 'Comet Lake' processors, and you'll be missing out on the Dolby Atmos soundbar and built-in pen. It does, however, have Dolby Atmos speakers in the keyboard, far-field voice microphones for Alexa and Cortana, a privacy shutter on the camera, and pen support.
On the clamshell side of that product, there's the Yoga S740, which will probably end up being called the IdeaPad S740 in the U.S., just like the Yoga S940 did. This comes in 14- and 115-inch sizes, and packs a bit more of a punch than its convertible sibling. For one thing, it's offered with a 4K UHD display with Dolby Vision, but the internals are also more powerful.
The CPU options are similar to the Yoga C940, in that the 14-inch model comes with 15W Comet Lake chips and the 15-inch model comes with 45W Coffee Lake CPUs. The 14-inch one has an option for dedicated graphics though, with an Nvidia GeForce MX250. The 15-inch model has the same GTX 1650 option.
At the bottom of the premium lineup is the Yoga C640, and the biggest change from the C630 is probably that it uses an Intel Comet Lake processor, rather than its predecessor's Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. It has a 13.3-inch FHD display, pen support, and it weighs in at less than 2.87 pounds.
All of these products should be available in October. The 14-inch Yoga C940 will start at $1,249.99, the 15-inch Yoga C940 will start at $1,709.99, the 14-inch Yoga C740 will start at $869.99, the 15-inch Yoga C740 will start at $899.99, the 15-inch Yoga S740 will start at $1,449.99, and the Yoga C630 will start at $849.99.
