New Super smart OZ Lenovo Range Revealed
The Chinese manufacturer who is the world’s #1 PC Company is set to put pressure on the struggling Hewlett Packard and Toshiba when their new product range goes on sale at JB Hi Fi and Harvey Norman.
One of the heroes of the Lenovo offering is the Yoga 3 Pro which is lighter and far more functional than the Yoga 2 Pro which has been on sale at JB Hi Fi.
This device is an ultra-slim 13-inch convertible PC. It features a ‘watchband’ hinge that allows the device to be thinner than a pencil when opened and 14 per cent lighter than before.
Other products in the range include the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro and the Yoga Tablet 2.
All three devices are designed to be used in multiple modes.
For example, the Yoga 3 Pro lets you turn your laptop into a tablet, and the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro can also be used as a projector.
The 13-inch Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is built for entertainment. It has a built-in projector, which lets users project a 16:9 high resolution image onto any surface. It also features an 8 watt sound system and its very own subwoofer, to help recreate the cinema experience.
Other features include an 8 megapixel rear camera and 15 hours of battery life. The traditional Yoga kickstand means that the tablet can either stand upright for watching videos or video-chat, or lie down in ’tilt mode’ for typing or gaming. The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro costs ?449 for the 32GB version with Wi-Fi.
The Yoga Pro 3 comes with Lenovo’s new Harmony software, which automatically adjusts the device’s settings such as audio, motion control or touch depending on the apps being used, and adapts brightness and colour temperature according to the environment lighting.
Other key features include the latest Intel Core M processor, rich audio sound and a QHD+ display.
The Yoga Tablet 2 has the same physical design as the previous Yoga tablets – available in 8-in and 10-in models – but allows customers to choose between Android and Windows.
The improved kickstand includes a new ‘hang’ mode (alongside stand, hold and tilt). The device also boasts 18 hour battery life, meaning it can keep on going almost all day, or be used to power other USB devices.
Other features include a 10-point touch screen, 8 megapixel rear camera and dual front-facing speakers with Dolby Audio and Wolfson Mater Hi Fi. The price of the Yoga Tablet 2 has not yet been announced.
Pricing or the launch date for the products have not been announced however ChannelNews understands that all three products will go on sale in Australia shortly.
