Lenovo Yoga A940 AIO wants to be the Surface Studio, sort of

Lenovo Yoga A940

For remote workers like myself, the S940 allows you to filter out backgrounds in video calls and can even filter out ambient noise, helping eliminate possible background distractions like pets and children.

The AMOLED display also means the display will emit 20% less blue light which should help your eyes. There's also AI sensors that can detect if you leave your computer and auto-lock the display to protect your computer from would-be snoopers. For example, if you look from your main laptop over to a screen screen, the laptop will automatically track this movement and shift open windows and content to the external screen.

The cheaper Yoga option is the C730 which offer similar specs as the S940 with the same 8th Gen Intel Core i7, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) panel and UHD 620 graphics.

Lenovo is back with an ultraslim laptop design for its Yoga line that uses precision crafted aluminum and reduced screen bezel giving the Yoga S940 an nearly 90% screen to body ratio for a fuller creative, productive and consumption canvas.

The companies are also working in tandem to "integrate key components" of Uplay's ecosystem and Epic's online services to provide. While the Epic Games Store has been around since December 2018, it looks like the service will get even bigger here in 2019 .

The other new Yoga notebook announced at CES, the C730, keeps the 360-degree display hinge design that most of the Yoga laptops have had over the years.

Customers have the option between an FHD (1920 x 1080) display panel or 4K UHD (3849 x 2400) with brightness levels of up to 500 nits as well as outfitting the S940 with up to 16GB of LP DDR3 RAM, if necessary. Each is powered by Intel's Core i7 running Windows 10 Home, but the similarities stop there.

For those looking for a 2-in-1 tablet, Lenovo had the Yoga C730 to show. Lenovo is upgrading the 15-inch 2-in-1 with a new 4K AMOLED display.

While not as arguably sleek as the Surface Studio, the Yoga A940 offers every bit of power and functionality of top tier desktops, fully equipped with four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0, one USB 3.1 and one Thunderbolt port as well as 3-in-1 card reader and audio jack. It also has a "Precision Dial" that can be used for fine-tuned adjustments in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or Lightroom.

Turns out the Golden Globes' photobombing Fiji Water girl is Canadian
The mystery model's identity was soon revealed by multiple media outlets as Kelleth Cuthbert , a Los Angeles-based model. Hundreds of memes and comments are now circulating on Twitter in celebration of " Fiji Water Girl ".

The big display can be purchased either with a 1080p or 4K resolution screen and inside you can get the PC with five Dolby Atmos speakers. The device now comes with upgraded 8th gen Intel Core i7 processors, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 512GB of PCIe SSD storage.

The price of the Lenovo Yoga A940 (above) starts at $2,349.99 and will hit the shelves in March 2019.

Probably one of the coolest features outside of the drawing aspects is the integrated wireless charger. A lighting strip on the bottom lets you see what's in front of you when you're working in the dark, it has a docking area to stash your keyboard, mouse and pen when you're not using them, and a Qi-compatible wireless charging pad on the base.
