This year Lenovo launched several products from Smart Technology to PCs to Gaming Systems at CES 2019. The products announced include: Lenovo Smart Clock with the Google AssistantTM, Lenovo Smart Tabs powered by Amazon® Alexa®, Yoga S940 ultra-slim Windows® 10 laptop, Yoga A940 all-in-one desktop, 15-inch Yoga C730 2-in-1 convertible laptop with AMOLED, Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter, Lenovo Legion, ThinkPad X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga laptops.
While at CES 2019 I had the opportunity to visit the Lenovo booth where they had all the newly launched products (from above) were on display. First the smart clock is a little larger than I thought and do not fancy the color of it however the display on it is crisp, a major plus. The Lenovo Smart Tabs powered by Amazon® Alexa® was cool but nothing that stood out from the rest of the similar products out there. I oddly liked the Yoga A940 all-in-one desktop and I’m not a desktop person! I think it’s all the bells and whistle that come with it and its design.
I checked out all products on display while at CES 2019 but my favorite was the Legion Y27gq Monitor and Y44w Monitor displays, talk about a vividly gorgeous display! I was memorized! As much detail as I can go into of my in-person experience of all the Lenovo products on display at CES I thought I should provide you all the Lenovo products specs for each launched that are listed below.
