As a result, Lenovo is focused on an ongoing vision and commitment to develop technologies that are not only smarter, but are available, accessible and benefit everyone. As a global technology leader Lenovo believes its duty is to develop world-changing technologies that can create a more inclusive, trustworthy and sustainable digital society – for everyone, everywhere.
Lenovo Goes All in on AI with Smarter Yoga™ PCs
Premium Yoga PCs from Lenovo are known for their computing power, first-rate craftsmanship, and immersive entertainment. When the undisputed world leader in PCs1 collaborates with trailblazing industry partners to deliver smarter technology faster to more consumers—meaningful innovation follows.
Today, Lenovo is unveiling what’s possible through collaboration in a new class of industry-leading laptops, engineered with Intel® as part of its innovation program code-named Project Athena2, to be amongst the thinnest, lightest and most intuitive AI-enabled devices yet with the latest Intel Core™ processors and Windows 10. Introduced on the new 14-inch Yoga C940 and Yoga S740 are exclusive smart features that adapt to users’ performance needs, such as, Super Resolution to upscale video up to FHD 1080p on Windows Media Player3, and Q-Control (named for device keys used to toggle modes) that has the potential to dynamically boost a PC’s battery life when its AI-enhanced Intelligent Cooling Mode is enabled to monitor the device’s thermal attributes and better control its fan. Add to it Modern Standby, which enables Yoga laptops to perform background tasks like receiving emails while in sleep mode, and instantly wake from sleep mode like a smartphone.
Also available on the new Yoga laptops in select markets4 are smarter capabilities through the Amazon Alexa voice service. Focused on improving the way we retrieve information, Lenovo is announcing three new Alexa updates4 coming to its consumer PCs, including:
Lock Screen Support: Speak to Alexa when the laptop lid is open and locked or asleep – she’ll respond instantly, with pop-up messages that appear at the bottom of the screen.
Updated Smart Home Visuals: Select Yoga devices4 now feature the familiar visual experience people are used to seeing when managing smart home devices with the Alexa mobile app.
Multi-Language Support: Talk to Alexa in multiple languages without having to change settings, currently offered in English and German.5
The 14-inch Lenovo Yoga C940 is the new 2-in-1 convertible laptop redefining smarter performance and design with its all-metal chassis and clever built-in features, like TrueBlock Privacy shutter, Windows Hello biometric authentication, and garaged pen with silo charging and Windows Ink. Enable Lenovo’s exclusive Q-Control2 by pressing Function-Q to shift into Intelligent Cooling Mode for your PC to auto-adjust performance and optimize battery life based on tasks. There is an improved battery life of up to 17.5 hours6 in FHD, and up to 10.5 hours6 with a UHD display.
With the device lid open, Alexa replies instantly from across the room4, providing pop-up notifications even when the screen is locked. The 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor dynamically upscales video content on Windows Media Player to Super Resolution3 for a crisper image on an optional 4K HDR display. This flagship device supports fast Wi-Fi 67 and comes with a Dolby Vision® enabled9 display and a redesigned Rotating Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos® Speaker System for immersive audio in every usage mode. An engraved camera notch makes 14-inch Yoga C940’s twice-polished aluminum lid easier to open, available in Iron Grey or Mica.
With a full range of intelligent features thanks to Lenovo Smart Assist, Project Athena2, and Alexa4, the 14-inch Lenovo Yoga S740 is designed to help people save time for daily convenience.

Easy to carry around town at 1.4kg (3lbs) light and ultra-slim at 18.1mm (0.7in) at its thickest point, the Yoga S740’s 14-inch optional 4K VESA400® HDR display with Dolby Vision9 features amazing sound with Dolby Atmos Speaker System, optional NVIDIA® GeForce® GPUs, plus an upgraded Eye Care2 mode made to help reduce eye strain from blue light emission. Great for the whole family, it will soon showcase a new child safety setting that reminds kids to limit their screen viewing time in one sitting.
Additional smart features include an IR camera that can detect a person’s absence after a few seconds and enable instant log-off. If a video is being watched and the viewer walks away for a few minutes, the PC is intuitive enough to pause the video and automatically resume upon return. During video calls the background can even be blurred so a cat or small child doesn’t make a surprise appearance during an online meeting.
Turn to Q-Control2 to enable the PC’s Intelligent Cooling Mode—engineered with machine learning to auto-adjust performance and optimize battery life based on the user’s computing needs. Additionally, the 14-inch Yoga S740 has up to 14 hours6 of battery life with RapidCharge8 (on optional FHD display).
