Lenovo has recently launched its newest offerings for the popular Ideapad and YOGA product lines in the Philippines.

The two product series unveiled its latest ultrathin, ultralight devices – 10 in total – that surely fits for consumers who want to maximize power and performance for both work and play. The new IdeaPad and YOGA ultrabooks arrived at the Philippine shores just right after being launched at one of the world’s leading trade shows for consumer electronics, IFA Berlin 2019.

“The Philippines will experience firsthand the powerful productivity of the latest IdeaPad and YOGA ultrabooks, supported by portable form factors and elegant design. These devices assure a seamless experience, critical in powering through today’s digitally driven world regardless if it’s for work or play,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager.

The 10 new Lenovo devices are IdeaPads S130, S145, S340, S540, and C340, and the YOGAs S740, S940, C640, C740, and C940. Each of these ultrabooks possesses different specifications just in line with the company’s makeover of its consumer devices last year. These powerful laptops measure less than 20 mm in thickness and weigh less than 2 kilograms.

Apart from these numbers, Lenovo became the first and only brand to carry a 100% Modern PC Ultrabook lineup through equipping them with solid-state drives (SSDs) that makes up for faster performance. That includes entry-level devices that usually only have hard disk drive (HDD) storage and a slot for optional SSD.

Lenovo's newest laptops feature 10th Generation Intel® Core™ Ice Lake or Comet Lake processors that promises a powerful performance. Intel said the processor’s new architecture can handle 18% more instructions per clock than the previous generation. In addition, they can deliver 16% more performance gains and enable 41% more productivity and multitasking on Office 365 than the previous generation chips.

The said processor also has a built-in Wi-Fi 6 support, which gives devices access to the highest speed of wireless internet and local data transfers, the ThunderBolt 3 capability, as well as the Intel® Optane™ Memory H10 with Solid State Storage, that allows personalized computing experience with a new level of performance and large storage capacity. These are also the first purpose-built processors developed for Artificial Intelligence, thus containing intelligent capabilities needed for modern AI-infused applications.

Apart from putting up superior performances, Lenovo is offering a free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2019 perpetual license worth PHP 6,995 for the upcoming ultrabooks. This can be availed upon purchasing the premium devices such as the YOGA S940 and IdeaPad S540.

With  Lenovo enabling its upcoming devices with SSDs, Lenovo is transforming the entry-level and budget laptop space for consumers by making the devices powerful enough to withstand the need for frequent upgrades. A majority of the laptops will have high-performance SSDs that can reach up to 1TB PCIE NVMe.
