  • Up to 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • Up to 2TB PCIe SSD
  • Up to 15.6-inch 4K VESA display with 500 nits brightness

The new 14-inch Yoga C940 laptop includes smart features, like Super Resolution that's designed to upscale video to Full HD, a Q-Control system for dynamically and intelligently improving battery life and AI-improved thermal cooling systems.

The C940 is also enhanced to work more like a smartphone in certain ways. It now comes with the ability to perform tasks and do things in the background like carry on receiving emails even when in sleep mode. 

Not only is Amazon Alexa's voice assistant integrated into these new laptops, it's also been improved with smarter capabilities. You can now talk to Alexa when the laptop is locked or in sleep mode. You'll also get improved smart home controls and an easy-to-use visual interface too. 

The new Yoga C940 is set to be a powerful 2-in-1 device with all the premium features you'd expect from the company. It includes Windows Hello security,  TrueBlock Privacy shutter and the Q-Control Intelligent Cooling Mode. Lenovo claims the new smarter tech in this machine means it'll get as much as 17.5 hours of battery life (or 10.5 hours with a 4K display). 

In terms of design, the new C940 is set to impress both your eyes and ears with a Dolby Vision enabled screen and a Dolby Atmos speaker system in the form of a rotating soundbar. A twice-polished aluminium frame and garaged pen with silo charging and Windows Ink capabilities round off an impressive package. 

The 14 and 15-inch versions will be available from September and October respectively with prices starting from £1099.99/$1249.99.

  • Up to 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • Up to 1TB PCIe SSD
  • Up to 15.6-inch 4K VESA400 HDR IPS panel with Dolby Vision and 500 nits brightness
  • 1 x USB-C DisplayPort, 2 x USB 3.1
  • WiFi 6 (2x2 802.11 ax) connectivity

The new Lenovo Yoga S740 is another Yoga laptop that comes in 14 and 15-inch variants. It's also another machine enhanced with intelligence thanks to Project Athena. The Yoga S740 is another thin and lightweight performer, weighing in at just 1.4kg. Alongside the stylish all-aluminium frame, there's also an optional 4K VESA400 HDR Display with Dolby Vision backed by powerful Dolby Atmos speakers. 

The Yoga S740 is also bristling with AI-smarts and intelligent features to make your life easier too. The laptop's camera, for example, has been enhanced so the machine knows whether you're there or not. If you step away for a short while it will automatically lock to keep your data secure or pause a video until you return. You can also use it to blur backgrounds during video calls and log on in an instant with Windows Hello. 

This laptop also has similar features to the C940 including intelligent cooling and optimised battery life that means it can last for up to 14 hours. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, can also pack some serious specs including options of up to a Core i9 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU. 

The 15-inch version will be available from September with prices starting from $1449.99.
