Lenovo is renewing its range of Yoga laptops with nine new models from 13 to 16 inches but is also launching a 27-inch all-in-one model.
Lenovo is taking advantage of this month of but to renew its range of Yoga laptops with seventh-generation machines. But the Chinese manufacturer does not stop there and presents an all-in-one model whose 27-inch IPS 4K screen can swivel in a horizontal or vertical position according to your needs.
No Intel processor in the Yoga AIO 7, but an AMD Ryzen 5 6600H Mobile or Ryzen 7 6800H Mobile chip depending on the configuration. To beef up the display, it is possible to add an AMD Radeon RX 6600M graphics card. The machine accommodates 16 or 32 GB of RAM, as well as 256 GB to 1 TB of PCIe SSD storage.
