Lenovo who is currently considering how they will launch the Motorola and Lenovo smartphone brands in Australia have confirmed that they will launch a sub 950 gram i7 notebook in Australia that is the lightest full notebook ever launched.
Kutcher who plays a role in the development of Lenovo products said of the new notebook “When I first picked it felt like a shell with no components it is so light”.
He told ChannelNews while visiting the Lenovo suite that he was looking forward to his Sydney visit.
According to Nick Reynolds the Marketing Director at Lenovo the Company is “extremely pleased with the role out of Lenovo products in Australia”.
Speaking to ChannelNews he said that the brand had done extremely well at JB Hi Fi.
JB Hi Fi executives attending CES told ChannelNews that they are excited about the Lenovo brand in particular the products that the Company will launch shortly.
During a private tour of the Lenovo suite ChannelNews was shown several new products including a 27″ all in one PC that folds down flat to become a touch slate.
We were also shown their new 8 Windows Yoga Tablet 2. This is an 8-inch slate running Windows 8.1 with an HD (1920 x 1080) IPS screen.
It has an Intel Atom quad-core processor (1.86 GHz), 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It weighs in at 0.42 kilograms and dimensions of 8.3 x 5.9 x 0.1 inches. It features battery life of 15 hours.
The stand out feature is the new Lenovo pen technology. The AnyPen, as Lenovo calls it, allows writing on the screen using a traditional pencil or ballpoint pen for the conductive display to register. Lenovo said that this is more precise and thus better than using your finger to write on the display.
The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 will be available in Australia in the first quarter.
There is also a ThinkPad Yoga that comes in three sizes. This product will be sold by the Lenovo specialist channel.
All of the display options, 12.5, 14, and 15.6 inches, have a touch option.
ChannelNews was also shown the Lenovo B50, Lenovo C40, and Lenovo C50 All-in-one PC systems.
However it is not known which products will be launched in Australia
The Lenovo B50 features a 23.8-inch full-HD IPS display, and also houses Intel’s RealSense motion-sensing 3D camera. The Lenovo C40 and C50 all-in-one PCs feature 21.5-inch display and 23-inch full-HD IPS displays respectively. The devices run on older Nvidia graphics and last year’s Intel Core processors. All the three PC systems will be available in the US market in March 2015.
