Calling all content creators: Lenovo has a vision to enable smarter technology for a more creative world – and you’re all invited. This handy guide will help you choose which of Lenovo’s new consumer Creator series devices is right for you – between two super-portable laptops, a powerful desktop tower, and two high definition 27-inch monitors. Let’s dive into the details.
Recent global research reveals over 200 million PC-based creators tackle their creative pursuits on a PC at least once a week.1 These are consumers who enjoy photography, digital storytelling, and dabbling with creative software tools and cool equipment—not necessarily paid professionals, graphic artists, and moviemakers. This special prosumer group of hobbyists, freelancers, and social media buffs inspired Lenovo to originate its new Creator series of Windows 10 PCs and monitors that are unveiling at CES®.
Each device comes specially stamped as part of Lenovo’s Creator Edition and is designed to help writers, artists and designers collaborate and use technology to create their next masterpiece while offering the high-performance productivity tools needed for a day job. Plus, the latest version of Lenovo Vantage software offers a unique user experience tailored to creators with relevant content plus exclusive deals. Artists can pin the Digital Content Creators dashboard to their taskbar to easily jump to their active Adobe® design apps.
And if you ever get stuck, Lenovo Premium Care customer support is just a call, email, or chat away to give service package holders around the clock access to expert technicians, now in over 36 geographic markets with additional locations announcing later in 2020.
