LAS VEGAS, January 8, 2015: Lenovo has announced at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show an expanded lineup of innovative PC devices designed for consumers in the home and on-the-go. Consumers now have a new option for affordable Android tablets with the two Lenovo TAB 2 A7 models. With our new Windows PCs, users get even more flexibility for work and play with the FLEX 3 convertible laptops in 11, 14 and 15-in models and now with four modes; powerful and stylish Lenovo U31 and U41 laptops; and an expanded line of all-in-one desktops with the B50 3D Camera, Lenovo’s first desktop featuring Intel’s RealSense 3D camera, and the space-saving C20, C40 and C50 models.
FLEX 3 Adds More Flexibility with More Modes
An ideal entry convertible laptop, the FLEX 3 now comes with a 360° hinge, allowing the touch screen to rotate full circle so users can put it in Tablet mode. FLEX 3 gives users even more flexibility to do more in any mode: watch the latest hit drama in Tent mode, view family photos in Stand mode, read a novel in Tablet mode or type a document in Laptop mode.
Thin and light, the FLEX 3 convertible laptop also offers a full Windows 8.1 Update computing experience with live tiles and a consistent interface across your Windows devices. They offer powerful computing with up to 5th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors in the 14-in and 15-in models and up to Pentium processors in the 11-in model and also feature up to 1 TB of storage for holding users’ digital content libraries. The FLEX 3 provides an equally compelling audio and visual experience with a HD 1366×768 screen in 11, 14 or 15-in screen sizes (or up to FHD on 14-in and 15-in) along with stereo speakers and Dolby Home Theatre.
Consumers looking for a thin, powerful and stylish conventional laptop can find it in the 13-in Lenovo S31 and 14-in S41 laptops running Windows 8.1 Update. Measuring just 19.5mm thin and weighing less than 1.8kg, these new thin and light S Series laptops are also performers. They come packed with an up to 5th generation Intel Core i7 processor, optional next generation NVIDIA GeForce graphics, large storage up to 1 TB SSHD or 256 GB SSD and stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theatre to handle work and play.
A Smart Choice for First Time Tablet Buyers
For first time tablet buyers, Lenovo created the extremely affordable TAB 2 A7-10 and A7-30 running Android 4.4. Pencil-slim at 9.3mm and just 269 grams, the entry A7-10 runs all day with up to eight hours of battery life. The A7-10 comes equipped with the essential technologies a tablet needs, including up to 32 GB of storage via the Micro SD, a MediaTek Quad Core processor, five point 1024×600 IPS touch screen and Dolby sound in an attractive Ebony Black.
Extremely portable at 8.9 mm thin and the same lightweight 269 grams, A7-10’s big brother, the A7-30, offers the same essential features plus optional 3G for voice calling1. This ultraportable “phablet” lets users carry one device to do it all while they’re on the go. In addition to phone calls via support for the SIM card, the 3G technology makes streaming videos and music fast and smooth. Users can select one of four fun colors choices – Aqua Blue, Cotton Candy, Pearl White or Ebony Black.
Both tablets come preloaded with Lenovo’s DOit suite of apps including SHAREit to instantly transfer files across devices, Security to protect against viruses, spam and malware and SYNCit to back up and restore contacts, text messages and call logs. Starting at $79, these tablets offer incredible value for the price.
Experience Interactivity Like Never Before with 3D Camera
Lenovo’s first AIO with an Intel RealSense 3D camera, the B50 3D Camera with Windows 8.1 update gives users an entirely new level of interactivity and productivity, allowing the PC to see like the user does with its 3D camera. The 3D camera features full 1080p color and a depth sensor to simulate depth-sensing and vision capabilities of human eyes. The 3D camera takes connecting, capturing and sharing and playing to a new dimension by enhancing video chats with virtual spaces, storing depth information for 3D editing and printing and interacting by responding to hands and finger movements and even facial expressions. It comes preloaded with four Intel RealSense experiences including Out of Box Experience, Personify, Wave Warrior and BBB Goal to make these imaginative uses a reality by video chatting, playing games and manipulating objects in 3D.
With its 23.8-in frameless FHD 1920×1080 touch screen and next generation NVIDIA GeForce graphics, the B50 3D Camera has beautiful visuals along with immersive Dolby certified sound and JBL speakers. It also has a DVD burner for flexibility when it comes to viewing and transferring multimedia. The B50 3D Camera also offers speedy performance with Windows 8.1, up to a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, WiFi and HDMI in and out connections. The AIO comes in choices of Ebony or Platinum with a keyboard and mouse.
