To further empower students and employees at work, Lenovo is bundling a free Microsoft Office Home & Student 2019 perpetual license worth PHP 6,995 for the upcoming ultrabooks. This can be availed upon purchasing the premium devices such as the YOGA S940 and IdeaPad S540.
All of the upcoming IdeaPad and YOGA ultrabooks will also be equipped with solid state drives (SSDs) for faster performance, including entry-level devices that usually only have hard disk drive (HDD) storage and a slot for optional SSD. With this move, Lenovo is transforming the entry-level and budget laptop space for consumers by making the devices powerful enough to withstand the need for frequent upgrades. A majority of the laptops will have high performance SSDs that can reach up to 1TB PCIE NVMe.
Powerful ultrabooks at the forefront
Headlining the new devices are the IdeaPad S540, YOGA S740, and IdeaPad C940 — three premium ultrabooks that work and play in style with their powerful 10th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, sleek design, and a range of smart features.
Coming to the market in different variants for its 13”, 14”, and 15” models, the IdeaPad S540 offers heavy-duty performance in addition to its premium look and feel. Users of the device are in for a visual treat due to its narrow bezels on all sides that allow 92% screen-to-body ratio, wide-angle viewing, and either QHD or FHD resolution options with some of the best color calibrations available. The device also includes built-in AI features such as hands-free login thanks to its IR camera capable of facial recognition login and the smart assistant Cortana. It also has an intelligent thermal solution that manages the device’s cooling. The 13” model will have an Intel® Core™ i5-10210U processor, while the 14” and 15” models will have an Intel® Core™ i7-10510U processor. Prices start at PHP 49,995.
