Lenovo latest range of devices unlock new AI experiences

Lenovo unveiled new business and consumer laptops designed to unlock new AI experiences and boost productivity, creativity and efficiency. The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 CarbonThinkPad X1 2-in-1, and IdeaPad Pro 5i are Intel Evo laptops powered by the latest Intel Core Ultra processors and Windows 11 that deliver optimal power efficiency, performance, and immersive experiences.

Whether for business or leisure, these Lenovo laptops are amongst the first that are driving an AI PC revolution that will fundamentally change how people create, collaborate, and interact with PCs. Designed to offer users the most comprehensive PC experiences yet, ThinkPad X1 and IdeaPad Pro 5i will help users embrace a new generation of AI computing.
Ready for the Next Wave of Business Computing
The next wave of business computing is here. Lenovo laptops with Intel Core Ultra processors are ready for the future of business computing. They have three compute engines: CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), and NPU (Neural Processing Unit), that can handle AI PC tasks efficiently and smartly. Offloading compute tasks to the NPU and/or GPU improves efficiency and performance, and delivers better power management.

Users can enjoy higher quality free flowing workstreams in supported software applications such as Zoom (for which the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad X1 2-in-1 are the only certified laptop Microsoft Teams, Studio Effects, Adobe Lightroom, and many more. Characteristics like text predictions, background blur, meeting transcripts, and summary emails improve productivity, while digital content tools maximize creativity without impacting overall system performance.

With Copilot in Windows, the things users do every day are made easier, faster, and more effortless. New features will help summarize web pages, compose an email, change settings, and enable new experiences in apps including Paint, Snipping Tool, and more. Lenovo is transforming its PCs and other devices to deliver personalized AI solutions. Working together with strategic partners, Lenovo has a shared vision to lead this transformative shift in personal computing.

Additionally, Lenovo announced the expansion of its hybrid cloud portfolio, powered by the next generation of Intel Xeon Scalable Processors. It delivers a new AI-ready platform with improved performance, the latest accelerators, and new Lenovo Professional Services for AI as a critical next step for enabling a dynamic hybrid AI approach across public, private, and foundational models.
Uncompromised User Experiences Need Relentless Innovation
Lenovo’s Product Diversity Office seeks to integrate inclusion and feedback from diverse user segments early on in product development. This inclusive customer experience has always been the key focus for ThinkPad innovation.

Tactile markings have always been part of ThinkPad design since 1992 to aid users who are visually impaired to navigate the keyboard. In 2021, Lenovo through its Product Diversity Office established a partnership with the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, North Carolina in the US to better understand how visually impaired users interact with their PCs. Lenovo is the first laptop manufacturer to integrate additional tactile cues that increase accessibility. Lenovo is aligning these changes with Microsoft’s Accessibility Team as it works toward new industry standards in keyboard design. The results of this collaboration are visible with new tactile markings on the keyboard. They include:

  • Volume up / down: Audio is crucial to users who are visually impaired. The F2 and F3 will include tactile markings, making it easier to distinguish between volume up and down.
  • Insert key: Insert and Delete keys often sit side-by-side on keyboards and can result in time-wasting and document-ruining problems. Too often, users have deleted or inserted content when they meant to do the opposite. The tactile mark on the Insert key will make it easier to tell the difference between the two keys.
  • Function key: The Fn key is essential for individuals using screen readers. Located next to, and the same size as the CTRL key can often be a source of frustration.
  • Enter key: While this seems an obvious addition, Enter keys can vary in size by keyboard and language.

AI-Powered Productivity
Push power to the limit with the new Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i (16″, 9), the world’s first consumer Intel Evo Edition laptop powered by Intel Core Ultra processors, which power the device’s AI PC experience by providing faster AI-powered photo creation and editing, quicker video export, and speedier multitasking thanks to Intel AI. That means text-to-image capabilities, generative AI text creation, and quickening photo and video editing workflows by providing higher quality previews and faster video export. With these all-new processors from Intel and up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop GPU pushing up to 115 TDP, the IdeaPad Pro 5i is supercharged with fast, generative AI-based creation tools to help creators to bring their ideas to life, and the freedom to fit in to more workflow styles with both 14-inch and 16-inch sizes. Whether it’s creating, editing, or even gaming, visuals are vibrant, crisp, and clean on the up to 16:10 OLED 100 percent DCI-P3 120Hz display.

When productivity is at top of mind, the IdeaPad Pro 5i delivers top results, with an IR FHD camera with ToF sensor and privacy shutter that supports Windows Hello for quick and secure login. The 84WHr Polymer battery supports Rapid Charge Express via Thunderbolt 4 for quick charging that maximize productivity sessions as well as faster data transfers, and expandable SSD slot allows for even more data storage beyond the up to 1TB PCIe M.2 SSD. All this power comes in at just 1.46kg (3.22 lbs) for the 14-inch variant, and 1.95kg (4.3 lbs) for the 16-inch variant, and with a sleek Arctic Grey chassis on all models, the IdeaPad Pro 5i lets creatives be the star of the show.
Creating Multidimensional Experiences Without Glasses
Just like the next wave of business laptops, the Lenovo ThinkVision 27 3D monitor is available now and ready to boost productivity and efficiency. The glasses-free 3D monitor now features an even more intuitive and interactive user interface version of 3D Explorer, which welcomes creators to the 3D realm and can also be used in 2D. Additionally, the monitor now comes with increased software support through proprietary applications, including Design Engine, which eliminates the need for individual plug-ins to provide a true interdimensional hybrid design experience. Users can now design in 2D and visualize in 3D, or use its 2D-to-3D Converter, enabling AI-powered 2D to 3D image, video, and content conversion in real time. With AI, high resolution with high refresh rate 2D content instantly transforms into vivid 3D content with precise spatial reconstruction, regardless of how complex the backgrounds can be, and all without requiring additional power or system upgrades.

With a built-in 3D rendering engine, the ThinkVision 27 3D monitor elevates productivity by reducing the need for additional equipment and computing power. It also increases efficiency by giving users the ability to visualize and adjust designs in real time. Artists, engineers, or designers can now create with 2D software on a 2D screen and immediately see their creations in 3D. In addition, any changes in 2D will simultaneously be reflected in 3D. The 27-inch glasses-free 3D monitor projects two independent images to the user’s eyes so that each sees the subject from a slightly different angle and paired with a 99% DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color accuracy, real-time eye-tracking technology, and a switchable lenticular lens – offering a natural 3D viewing experience.
