New ThinkBook Yoga 14s from Lenovo makes its debut
Lenovo’s new ThinkBook Yoga 14s has finally arrived, making a valuable addition to the market’s fleet of small business laptops.
It’s a flexible 2-in-1 device with added versatility — it features four usage modes: laptop, tablet, stand and tent. Smart features have also been built in — like Modern Standby, and apps that open automatically when users pull out the integrated pen in a specific mode.
The base model features an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 1135G7 processor, 8GB of memory, a 256GB NVMe solid-state drive and ships with Windows 10 Pro. Users can bump up the processor to an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 1165G7 processor, as well as their RAM, which can be upgraded to 16GB.
In terms of graphics performance, it uses Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and storage-wise it features up to 512GB SSD.
Its 60Wh 4-cell battery offers all-day battery life and supports Rapid Charge Pro, giving users 80% charge from empty in an hour and 50% in 30 minutes.
Further, you can supercharge your computing experience with up to 40GB of DDR4 RAM Memory and the ability to expand storage up to 1.5TB via two SSD's.
Display and design
The device weighs in at 1.5 kg, is 1.7 cm thick, and features a 14” widescreen. It has an 86% screen-to-body ratio, which facilitates potential viewing in its four modes, and delivers a 1,920-by-1,080-pixel FHD display, which features Dolby Vision.
The ThinkBook 14s Yoga’s comes with an all-metal exterior available in Mineral Grey or a limited-edition Abyss Blue, giving it a stylish look while also being durable.
At the centre of its smart features is the Smart Pen, a device-aware and intuitive stylus. Users can jot down ideas and notes quickly using its AI and sensor technologies, which instantly customises the right window for note-taking.
Even when the device is on standby, pulling the Smart Pen out auto wakes up the laptop and opens up the Smart Note app.
With Modern Standby, the laptop wakes in one second and connects in one more. Its smart pen activates one of two useful apps — touch it to the display in standby mode to open a note-taking app, or pick it up when logged in to open the Windows Ink workspace. The backlit keyboard has hotkeys; one touch connects users to Skype for Business (account required) or Lenovo Services.
The ThinkBook Yoga 14s’s Thunderbolt 4 port supports two 4K displays and PCIe storage speeds of 32 Gbps. It also has USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, USB-A, HDMI, 4-in-1 card reader, and an audio combo port that allows users to connect to a broad spectrum of accessories and monitors without using dongles and adapters.
The device is also compatible with the ThinkPad USB-C Dock Gen2 and ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C dock for easy docking in workspaces.
