No, there isn’t any new Yoga. You will need to maintain ready on that. For now, Lenovo is enterprise a way more modest undertaking: refreshing its present notebooks with Haswell. First off, the present IdeaPad U310 Contact and U410 Contact at the moment are the U330 and U430 Contact. Aside from the distinction in display measurement (thirteen inches vs. 14), each can be configurable with as much as Core i7 fourth-era Core processors, together with non-compulsory SSDs and a max of 8GB of RAM. Whereas the U330 shall be provided with both 1,366 x 768 or 1,920 x 1,080 decision, the U430 comes with a 1,600 x 900 display (you’ll be able to improve to 1080p there, too). Oh, and the 14-incher could be had with a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 730M GPU. Each might be out there within the third quarter, with the U330 priced at $799 and up and the U430 going for $899.

Display decision is restricted to both 1,366 x 768 or 1,600 x 900, nevertheless. That is out there now on Lenovo.com beginning at $799.
Ending up with the entry-degree S collection, we have got the eleven.6-inch S210 Contact, the 14-inch S400 Contact and the 15.6-inch S500 Contact. One factor to remember is that each of those have Ivy Bridge processors as an alternative of Haswell, because it was a simple method for Lenovo to maintain the price down. Aside from that, you are taking a look at Core i3 or i5 processors, as much as 8GB of RAM, touchscreens with 1,366 x 768 decision and hopefully some respectable battery life (the batteries are so massive right here they create a hump across the hinge space). Moreover, the S400 and S500 could have non-compulsory discrete graphics, with AMD within the S400 and NVIDIA within the S500. Search for these in Q3, with pricing as follows: $429 for the S220, $449 for the S400 and $579 for the S500.
