IFA 2015: Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga and Miix 700

Lenovo’s major announcement at IFA this year are mainly laptops that target a broad audience from business users to ordinary consumers. We’ve already featured the company’s new business-oriented laptops a few days ago, so now we’ve got the rest of Lenovo’s new products to introduce.

On one end, we have two new ThinkPad Yoga convertible business laptops – the Y260 and Y460. As the name implies, both models will have those 360-degree hinge that allows the device to go into four different modes: laptop mode, stand mode, tend mode and tablet mode.

Both models have identical specs with the exception of the display size. The Y260 boasts a 12.5-inch display while the Y460 gets a 14-inch panel. As with most ThinkPad models, the Y260 and Y460 can be configured in a multitude of ways. [Buy Online]

Users can choose among the latest Intel Core processors, RAM can go up to 16GB (8GB max for the Y460), storage can go up to 1TB HDD or 512GB SSD and the 14-inch version can be equipped with a dedicated GPU from NVidia (with 2GB of video memory).

Battery is said to last up to 10 hours and there’s a bunch of connectivity options that come as standard including USB 3.0 ports, a Mini DisplayPort, OneLink+ and a multimedia card reader. In terms of security, both models get a Kensington lock and a fingerprint reader.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 460 and 260 will be available starting October and November respectively. The 12-inch version will sell for $949 while the Y460 will be offered for $1049.

Then there’s the Lenovo Miix 700, the newest member of the company’s consumer-friendly convertibles. In terms of looks, the Miix 700 follows the same design principle as Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet.

The main unit houses the 12-inch display with FHD+ resolution and 300 nits of brightness. The device packs a 6th generation Core m7 processor and can have up to 8GB of RAM. There are also two 5MP cameras, one located at the front while the other is placed at the back.

Storage can go up to 256GB (SSD) while the battery can last up to 9 hours (local video playback). The keyboard attaches magnetically to the main unit using magnets and just like in the Surface tablet, and it even folds up to raise the keyboard at a certain angle.

The kickstand at the back has the same design as the Surface Pro but the hinge makes use of Lenovo’s own “watch hinge” that allows for multi-angle positions. Lenovo is planning to ship this Miix 700 by November 2015 starting at $699.
