Lenovo debuts travel-ready tablet laptops

0 comments

Today at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo introduced two new consumer Windows 10 PCs: YOGA 710 and 5101 convertible laptops and the ideapad MIIX 310 2-in-1 detachable tablet.
The company recognises consumers’ need to work on multiple devices for different tasks. For example, they may text on a smartphone, work on a laptop, and read on a tablet. That’s why it designed each of its new devices to either convert or detach into tablet mode, so users can do more with the comfort of typing on a keyboard and the power of the latest generation of Intel processors, while giving them long battery life to leave the power cord at home.
Lenovo created the new 11-inch YOGA 710 for travelers and mobile workers who are productive on the road. Powered by a 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processor on the 14-inch model and up to Core m5 processor on the smaller 11-inch model, the YOGA 710 comes with Windows 10 and is one of the most powerful and portable convertible laptops available.
Users can multitask seamlessly between videoconferencing, emailing and editing photos on the go. Weighing only 1.04kg, its compact size and ability to convert into a tablet make it ideal for people looking to save space in their bags. The YOGA 710 can flex into four modes that make it easy to type in laptop mode, present in stand mode, watch videos in tent mode, or browse in tablet mode.
Its bigger sibling, the14-inch model, fits those looking for improved connectivity, via an innovative hinge antenna that delivers up to 20 percent better WiFi connections than before. The 14-inch YOGA 710 also has an up to 256GB solid state drive (SSD) for fast access to movies, pictures, and files without having to use an external hard drive. It also has enhanced performance with optional next generation NVIDIA GeForce graphics.
Beautifully slim and light, both models offer up to 8 hours of battery so users can enjoy a movie marathon and still have charge to squeeze in a couple of hours of work. The FHD (1920×1080) display makes everything from movies and photos to games and video chat look sharper. The addition of Dolby Audio Premium energizes entertainment with rich, powerful sound that dynamically adjusts audio to deliver home theatre quality in a virtual surround sound experience.
Thanks to a new stylish design, lighter weight, and more than 50% improvement in battery life, the new YOGA 510 delivers up to 8,5 hours and lets users say goodbye to sitting on the floor tied to an outlet. Similar to the YOGA 710, the new YOGA 510 delivers a smooth transition between laptop, stand, tent, and tablet modes. Lighter than before at only 1,75kg (14-inch) and 2,08kg (15-inch), its new design has a unique diamond cut palm rest. Powered by up to 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with optional AMD Radeon R7 M460 2GB GFX, the YOGA 510 has serious performance chops for working and multitasking.
Weighing just 580g, the versatile 2-in-1 detachable ideapad MIIX 310 tablet has optional 4G LTE that caters to data junkies who want the freedom to work and roam the web from any location. Starting at just R5 912.10, this 10-inch tablet is one of the most affordable devices that combines both tablet and PC in one.  And, unlike many of its rivals, it comes with a detachable keyboard as standard.
Offering more battery life than before, the ideapad MIIX 310 boasts up to 10 hours2 of battery life with an optional FHD display, making movie marathons that much more immersive. With up to 64GB eMMC storage and 4GB DDR3L of memory, users will enjoy up to double the memory than before for faster web surfing and smoother multitasking. And with Cortana and Lenovo REACHit on the ideapad MIIX 310, users have the convenience of finding documents, photos, music, videos, and more in a more natural and contextual way.
