Lenovo, today, announced two new detachable PCs in the Indian market. The Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i and the IdeaPad Duet 3 are priced at Rs. 79,999 and Rs. 29,999, respectively. The device will be sold on Lenovo’s own e-commerce website and through Amazon and Flipkart from July 12 onwards. The prices make it pretty clear that the device targets two different market segments in terms of affordability, but the company also wants to reach users who want more flexibility in the PCs that they use. Detachable PCs aren’t too popular in India, but companies have been pushing them for a while now.
Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i specs
The Yoga Duet 7i is the first Yoga branded PCs from Lenovo to have a detachable form factor. The Yoga brand has so far consisted of convertible devices that allow the screen to be rotated a full 360 degrees. However, detachable form factors offer better usability for those who want to use their PCs in the tablet form factor. The tablet mode on the Yoga Duet 7i also has a kickstand, to help prop up the device on a flat surface.
The laptop runs on Intel’s 11th Generation Core i5 processors and includes Intel Iris Xe graphics. It has a 13-inch 2K IPS display and supports 100 percent of the sRGB colour gamut with 450 nits brightness. The company claims it will offer up to 10.8 hours of battery life, and the device also has Lenovo’s Voice Assistant, and supports Windows Hello for facial login.
Further, it sports intelligent presence sensing features using Glance from Mirametrix, which protects the screen from shoulder surfing.
Lenovo Ideapad Duet 3
While the Duet 7i is meant for a more premium market segment, the Ideapad Duet 3 is aimed at budget buyers. The device has a 10.3-inch FHD IPS display with 330 nits brightness and up to 4GB of RAM. It offers up to 7 hours of battery life, according to the company, and 360-degree microphones for calls and recording audio. There’s also a privacy shutter on the device, which allows users to physically block the webcam when required.
