Lenovo has introduced several new products at the ongoing CES 2024 — over 40 devices. And nearly all of these include some artificial intelligence (AI)-driven feature. The tech company is calling it “AI for All.” Here’s a look at everything Lenovo unveiled.

Lenovo Yoga Series: Elevating Creativity with AI

At the forefront of Lenovo’s CES showcase are the Yoga AI laptops, designed not just for computing, but also being pitched as a canvas for creativity. The Yoga Pro 9i (16″, 9) and Yoga 9i 2-in-1 (14″, 9) stand out, boasting of military grade durability (MIL-STD-810H1).

The laptops are powered by the latest Intel Core Ultra Processors. They also feature the innovative Lenovo AI Core Chip. The laptops also come with what the company calls as the Lenovo Yoga Creator Zone, which is an exclusive software tailored for creators. The software is capable of utilising generative AI for seamless image generation from simple text-based inputs or sketches.

There’s also Lenovo X Power, which is a machine learning-powered tuning solution that the company claims is capable of enhancing creative tasks like 3D rendering and film colour correction.

The Copilot key in Windows 11 facilitates swift access to AI capabilities, offering relevant answers, email summarisation, image generation, and more.

Lenovo Tab M11

Lenovo’s Tab M11 has a Lenovo Tab Pen for scribbling and comes loaded with useful software like Nebo and WPS Office. It’s not just for binge-watching Netflix, but also a device aimed at students and doodlers.

ThinkBook, ThinkCentre, and More

For small and medium-sized businesses, Lenovo has some fresh gear as well. The ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid mixes Windows and Android systems, offering both worlds. The ThinkBook 13x Gen 4 is a workhorse with a carbon-neutral tag.

Then there’s ThinkCentre neo-Ultra which is a tiny, but mighty AI PC. This desktop PC might remind users of the Mac Studio given the main unit is in the shape of a small box. But this desktop has its own Neural Processing Unit (NPU), and is powered by the Intel Core i9 processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 graphics.

AI for Everyone: Lenovo’s Personal AI Assistant

Lenovo’s ‘AI for All’ vision continues with the company introducing its new Lenovo AI Now Personal Assistant. This is set to roll out in the first half of 2024 in China. The AI assistant is aimed at revolutionising user interaction on AI PCs. It can streamline workflows, change settings through natural language, and enhance collaboration, according to the company. It is not clear if this will be brought to markets outside of China.

Eco-Friendly Gear and Customizable Laptops

Lenovo is also testing some unique ideas as showcased at CES 2024. For starters, there’s Mechanical Energy Harvesting Combo, which is a mouse and keyboard that charge themselves using movement and sunlight – no more cables.

The ThinkBook 13x Gen 4 SPE is another concept device that lets users change their laptop cover’s colours with E Ink Prism tech.

Lenovo’s Gamer Zone

CES 2024 also witnessed the grand entrance of Lenovo’s new gaming ecosystem, featuring the 9th generation Lenovo Legion 16-inch gaming laptops and towers. These machines, powered by Microsoft Windows 11, promise gamers the perfect blend of power, thermals, graphics, and AI-powered advantages.
