Forecasting a big year for Lenovo as it had a respectable and stellar ratings during the fiscal year 2018-2019, which saw the company once again claiming the top spot in worldwide PC shipments. Gearing up for another big year, Lenovo is proudly announcing new products for their Yoga, Ideapad, Legion, and IdeaCentre line up.
The Rise of Lenovo Legion
A critical factor in Lenovo’s growth surge is its Legion gaming brand which started on 2019 in the Philippines with a rather explosive entry to the market. This year saw the birth of the first exclusive Legion Concept Store in SM City North EDSA, and shortly after, Legion was a co-presenter of GameCon 2019, one of the country’s biggest gaming conventions.
Legion is fortifying its lineup with new devices. Complete immersion is the name of the game as we slowly shift to modern trends. The new Legion lineup is set to provide just that, with devices equipped with the latest graphics cards and processors for truly immersive gameplay.
Bannering the upcoming products is the gaming beast Legion Y740 equipped with a NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 graphics card and 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-9750H Processor. Intel claims this will provide gamers 56% higher frames per second and 38% faster game turn times while content creators will enjoy a 54% speed boost when editing 4K videos. Wrapped in an all-aluminum chassis and thin bezels, the Y740 breaks the convention of what gaming devices look like with its sleek design. It is available at around PHP 119,995.
Legion is also releasing the Lenovo IdeaPad L340 Gaming laptop ideally for people in the market to acquire a first gaming PC. Available in either Intel Core i7 with +128GB SSD (PHP 59,995) or Intel Core i5 (PHP 49,995) variants, the IdeaPad L340 Gaming laptop is one of the most affordable devices out in the market equipped with an NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 graphics card. Three variants of the Legion Y540 are also in the lineup. At the top of the pile is a contender for middle level workbooks – equipped with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 graphics card with 6GB VRAM, 1TB SSD storage, 16GB RAM, and an Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor.
Complementing the laptops are Legion peripherals and accessories designed to offer the complete gaming experience. One of these is the mammoth-sized Legion Y44w gaming monitor that has a 43.4-inch curved (1800R) display with a 144Hz refresh rate. All devices come with Lenovo’s 2-Year Premium Care Support, including 24/7 support from Lenovo’s senior tech resources; Zero Tolerance to Dead Pixel, a service that repairs displays even with only a single dead pixel; and 2-year onsite warranty wherein Lenovo’s staff will go directly to the customer’s location for any troubleshooting needs.
Pushing boundaries with the new IdeaPad and Yoga Ultrabooks
Last year, Lenovo bid the problem of thick and bulky notebooks goodbye by refreshing its Yoga and IdeaPad lineups and turning all devices into Ultrabooks ─ powerful laptops that are on-trend and in demand as they are less than 20mm thick and weigh below 2kg. Lenovo is finally bringing the new IdeaPad and Yoga Ultrabooks to the Philippines. With a total of 16 Ultrabook models, no other company has such a large portfolio of Ultrabook devices.
Headlining the new Yoga devices is the Yoga S940 (PHP 115,995). Measuring a sleek 12.2 mm and weighing only 1.2 kg, it is the world’s first laptop to have Contour Glass which wraps around the display for smoother edges that minimize the appearance of its already thin bezels. Accompanying the Yoga S940 is the Yoga S730, a device designed to be an ideal travel companion with its weight of 1.1 kg, thinness of 11.9mm, and its cooling system that pulls air through secondary vents hidden in the keyboard.
The upcoming IdeaPads, on the other hand, will be led by the IdeaPad S540, available in six variants. The most premium will come with NVIDIA® GeForce GTX™ 1650 graphics card and an Intel® Core™ i7-8565U processor (PHP 69,995). Meanwhile, multiple variants of the ultra-slim IdeaPad S340, the 2-in-1 convertible laptop IdeaPad C340, and the powerful everyday laptop IdeaPad S145 are also arriving, with higher variants coming with a Microsoft Office Perpetual bundle worth PHP 5,995.
Like the Legion devices, the new Yoga Ultrabooks will be covered under a 2-Year Premium Care Support with 24/7 support from senior tech resources and Zero Tolerance to Dead Pixel, a service that repairs displays even with only a single dead pixel. Premium Care Support also includes a 2-year onsite warranty, wherein Lenovo’s skilled and experienced technicians offering comprehensive hardware and software support will go directly to the customer’s location for any troubleshooting needs, an unmatched service unique to Lenovo for customers’ extra peace of mind.
