The age of Windows 8.1 is finally approaching. Several large vendors have announced their plans to release a number of new PCs and devices in September and October.
Prime among them is Lenovo — the biggest PC maker in the word.
The Chinese hardware giant has unveiled its upcoming lineup of Windows 8.1 products, and the list includes an all new ThinkPad Yoga. The company’s press release has neat details on this notebook tablet hybrid with a flipping hinge design.
This 12.5-inch touchscreen laptop is housed in a magnesium alloy body and is powered by Intel’s fourth generation Core processors. Storage options go up to 1TB of space, and pricing starts at $949. This sleek little device will hit the store shelves in November.
Additionally, the company has also made official the Yoga 2 Pro — it shares the moving hinge design of the original Yoga but comes with a 13.3-inch touchscreen and an utterly impressive resolution of 3200 by 1800 pixels.
The device is set to be powered by Windows 8.1 out of the box, with a choice of Intel processors and up to 512GB of SSD storage. Slated for availability sometime in October, this one comes with a price tag that starts at $1,099.
Lenovo is also set to release the Flex 14 and Flex 15 notebooks, which can actually flip around 300 degrees (unlike the full 360 degrees of the Yoga). While these cannot be used in tablet mode, these notebooks do come with impressive specifications.
The 14.1-inch and 15.6-inch versions have optional display resolutions of either 1366 by 768 or 1920 by 1080 (I know what I am choosing), with a battery life of up to nine hours. These laptops go on sale in September, with prices of $629.99 and up.
And finally, the company has also official its new all-in-one Windows 8 PC, dubbed the Flex 20. This one can be used as either a regular AiO, or as a tablet when detached from its power cord.
It offers up to three hours of battery life, and starts at $899.99 with a September availability.
