Everything Lenovo Have Announced At CES 2020
Lenovo has shown up at CES 2020 in full force, with its usual innovative and status-quo-crushing style present on more products than it’s ever showcased before. Mainly operating within the world of laptops, Lenovo haven’t disappointed with their CES offering, with a slew of choice tablets, peripherals, and other surprises alongside their main announcements.
Here’s everything Lenovo is showcasing in Las Vegas this week.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 – A 14.5″ ultra-thin laptop, the Yoga Slim comes in two versions. One version sports an AMD latest Ryzen 4800U mobile processor, and the other has Intel’s Ice Lake Core i-7 1065G7 married to optional NVIDIA MX or GTX graphics. Priced from $850 to $1,209.99, both models will be available from April 2020.
Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 – A 15.6″ 1080p laptop aimed at the creative market rather than exclusively gamers, the Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 features a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, an as-yet-undisclosed NVIDIA GPU, up to 16 GB of RAM, and beefy 1 TB PCIe SSD. No word on when we can expect Lenovo to start shipping this one, though.
Lenovo Yoga 5G – Touted as the world’s first 5G laptop, the Lenovo Yoga 5G uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx CPU alongside an X55 5G modem. It has a 14″ 1080p IPS display, 256 GB/512 GB SSD, 8 GB of RAM, and slow to support Nano and eSims. Lenovo says we can look forward to a 24-hour battery life, and that it should arrive Spring 2020 – but they stopped short of sharing a price.
Lenovo ThinkBook Plus – Lenovo’s ThinkBook Plus differentiates itself by housing a 10.8″ E-Ink display on the back cover that’s touch-sensitive and is reminiscent of Amazon’s popular Kindle.

Lenovo Ducati 5 Laptop – Lenovo has teamed up with motorbike manufacturer Ducati to offer this limited edition entry-level laptop, with a 14″ FHD display, Intel Core i3 or i5, 8G of Ram, 1TB SSD, and a Ducati-inspired design. The limited run of 12k units arrives in April 2020 for around $1000.

Lenovo Legion M600 RGB Gaming Mouse – A mid-level wireless gaming mouse with (an alleged) 200 hours of battery life.

The M600 is expected in June 2020 and will retail at around $80.
Lenovo Legion M300 RGB Gaming Mouse – the M300 is very much a budget iteration of the M600. It has an incredibly similar design, but extracts many of the more attractive features of the pricier equivalent. Notably its a wired mouse, has less RGB lights, and only 10 million clicks compared to the M600 50 million. Spec-wise, it features a PixArt 3325 optical sensor, 8,000 DPI, 100 IPS, 1,000 Hz polling, and eight programmable buttons. Expect it to land Jun 2020 for around $30.

Lenovo Lavie Home AIO – This all-in-one PC is another product from the Lenovo and NEC team up. Their special Crystal Sound Display essentially turns the monitor into a speaker as well, with vibrations running across as sounds play. The 720p webcam and support for voice assistance, it will make an excellent video conferencing tool.
