The line of notebooks Lenovo Yoga is one of the most recognizable on the market, although in recent times the design of its convertible is “imitated”, in some cases badly. These laptops are special, because they have a hinge that rotates the touch screen of (up to) 360 degrees, folding the bottom and turning them into tablets. It has been nearly four years since the Chinese company unveiled its first Lenovo Yoga and since then has extended the concept to several models of various sizes, with small and large screens, more powerful processors or chips Core M.
The last notebook “Yoga-style” Lenovo has the performance of a workstation for digital artists and other graphics professionals. Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga P40 will be available in the first quarter of 2016 to the starting price of $ 1399, but almost certainly we will see him live at CES 2016.
The laptop comes with a 14-inch touch display with support for pen input through Wacom digitizer, capable of recognizing up to 2,048 pressure levels when using the ThinkPad Pro Pen. ThinkPad Yoga P40 is powered by an Intel Core i7 (Skylake) with Nvidia Quadro M500M. Lenovo will offer more options for the screen: Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) or WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels), both IPS panels. It can integrate up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, while connectivity uses three USB 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet.
As part of the family of professional notebooks ThinkPad, this model also has a touchpad below the keyboard and a trackpoint in the middle of it. The design does not get lost in details and frills: is black, vital and robust. It weighs 1.76 kg and measures 20 mm in thickness.
We do note that the ThinkPad Yoga P40 appeared a few weeks ago, in a roadmap of the company, which shows that the document is valid and will be still many new Lenovo. If the timing will be respected, very soon we should hear about the tablet ThinkPad X1 12-inch and dell’ultrasottile convertible ThinkPad X1 Yoga.
