You’ll Flip for the Flexibility of Lenovo Yoga AIO 71
When you want impressive power and premium style from an all-in-one desktop PC for your home, look no further than the new Lenovo Yoga AIO 7 desktop with Windows 10.
Lenovo’s exclusive rotatable hinge2 feature is here allowing you to personalize your setup, effortlessly swivel the slim-framed display from a horizontal to full vertical position to allow for a tall and sleek window screen with just the push of a finger. Or, tilt the viewing angle from completely flat to up to 20 degrees for customized comfort. What’s more, with the Yoga AIO 7’s integrated wireless casting hardware, you can activate the display remotely from a tablet or smartphone without having to turn on your desktop. A future update allows you to display online shows directly to your screen transforming it into a 4K smart TV. Your content even automatically rotates on your PC’s screen for ease of use, and sharing webpages directly from your mobile device with living room viewers is a snap via casting menu options.
With an attractive soft-textured design, the user-facing JBL® Harman-certified stereo speakers are thoughtfully placed under the rotating display to ensure powerful, immersive sound even when display is turned vertically. The desktop’s minimalist design in a blend of Cloud Grey and Moon White hues keeps this centerpiece contemporary and light for any home office or living space. While its color-matched and bundled accessories, including a wireless keyboard, mouse, and detachable top-placed 5M web camera, ensure clean lines. Charge your laptop via your Yoga AIO 7 and transfer files with one cable, plus drag and drop files from your laptop while connected to share storage as you crank out big creative tasks.
Optimized for color gamut fans who are taking part in education and entertainment at home, as well as for better printing results, the Yoga AIO 7 is the world’s first all-in-one desktop computer screen with a 27-inch 4K IPS display supporting both 99 percent DCI-P3 and 99 percent Adobe RGB color standards for dazzling visuals.3 This combination of display technology results in a wider spectrum of warmer reds and yellows, and cooler greens and cyan areas.
Crafted by Lenovo, the desktop is powered by the exceptional performance of up to AMD Ryzen™ 7 4800H Processor and paired with a NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 GPU for endless multi-tasking, content creation, and non-stop gaming. Keeping your household in sync can be easier than ever with the hands-free functionality of Alexa® on your PC.4 Use the Yoga AIO 7’s built-in mics to speak to Alexa and just with your voice set reminders, control your smart home, and play music—all without having to turn your attention away from browsing or sending an email.
Lenovo L24i-30 and L27e-30 Monitors: Style that Holds your Attention (and your Smartphone)
Go ahead, take a second look; these are not your typical desktop monitors. Often placed in family rooms with the most foot traffic, you (and everyone else) spend a lot of time looking at a monitor’s aesthetic and screen design—so why sacrifice chic style for entertainment or productivity when you can have it all with Lenovo’s new consumer monitor series: the Lenovo L24i-30 and Lenovo L27e-30.
The premium In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels offered on both the Lenovo L24i-30 and Lenovo L27e-30 monitors can help you make the most of movies, online shopping, news, games, or your work, by delivering crisp, clean images at wide-viewing angles. And with education shifting to include more distance and hybrid learning than ever before, more teachers and students are finding out that they need larger, higher quality monitors for their virtual lessons.
Designed for functionality, both monitor stands possess hidden cable management features and an integrated smartphone holder to help keep you more organized and your personal space tidy. Just tilt the display for a more comfortable viewing angle and choose from two sturdy builds: either the sophisticated all-metal stand of the new Lenovo L24i-30 that’s accented with trendy bi-color elements, or the simple elegance of Lenovo L27e-30’s sculpted Graphite Grey stand. Each monitor is outlined in Raven Black and crafted to be ultra-slim with a head as thin as 7.1mm and near-edgeless on three sides.
Choose the right-sized 23.8-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display on the Lenovo L24i-30 or go up a size with the 27-inch Lenovo L27e-30. Keep your eyes feeling fresh with advanced anti-glare and Eye Comfort technology certified by TUV Rheinland5 to help minimize blue light and flickering throughout the day. Both monitors come ready to support AMD FreeSync™ technology for smooth and stutter-free gaming.6 Plus these displays are capable of refresh rates of up to 75Hz via their HDMI input display port.
As a bonus, Lenovo offers you the convenience of personalizing the appearance, volume, and characteristics of your monitor through the On-Screen Display (OSD) settings via the Lenovo Artery software platform. Now, gamers, movie-lovers, or multitaskers can easily control their Lenovo monitors to fit any at-home usage scenario.
