Lenovo comes to walk on the borders of Microsoft with its Yoga A940, an all-in-one that has serious arguments to establish itself as the "Surface Studio Killer" par excellence.
At CES 2019, Lenovo introduces a new all-in-one computer clearly inspired by Microsoft's Surface Studio. The Yoga A940 – its small name – is a computer designed around a touch screen 27 "mounted on an ergonomic foot to tilt enough slab to use as a digital drawing table.
Obviously usable using a stylus, this computer incorporates a "precision wheel" that can be placed on one side or the other of the screen. Creatives will appreciate it to manage the behavior of their various tools (brushes, brushes …) or to zoom in their working documents, among others. Lenovo advances compatibility with Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
A solid configuration
Two slabs will be available to choose from: one in QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels), the other in Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels). Inside, on the component side, Lenovo assembles an Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32 GB of RAM, a SSD with a maximum capacity of 512 GB and a 2 TB HDD. An AMD Radeon RX 560 graphics card completes the 'together. The connection part is generous: four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.1 port and a card reader. Note also the presence of a Qi induction charger based on the product.
The launch of the Yoga A940 is scheduled for the month of March at a price of $ 2,349, while the Surface Studio is sold more than $ 1,000 more in the United States. In France, the first generation Surface Studio is sold for € 3,549 by Microsoft, while it costs at least € 4,149 to afford the "v2" all-in-one. So Lenovo has a beautiful card to play with its Yoga A940.
