Lenovo has officially taken the wraps off its 2020 consumer laptop range, including a 5G-ready IdeaPad. The other devices launched by the PC giant include a 16-inch IdeaPad 5 Pro, Yoga AIO 7 all-in-one desktop PC and the pocket-sized Lavie Mini. The company has also announced the L24i-30 and L27e-30 monitor as well as the Lenovo Tab P11.
Here’s a closer look at all the products Lenovo has announced at CES 2021 (so far).
5G comes to the IdeaPad, Lenovo’s mid-range laptop series. The 14-inch IdeaPad 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s 8cx 5G compute platform with Adreno 680 graphics and the Snapdragon X55 modem. The notebook offers up to 8GB LPDDR4X memory and 512GB of PCIe SSD storage. Perhaps the highlight of the IdeaPad 5G is its battery life, which according to Lenovo will last 20 hours on a single charge. The IdeaPad 5G is fan-less and runs on Windows 10. Besides the IdeaPad 5G, Lenovo also plans to sell a variant of this notebook with 4G LTE, which will be powered by the Snapdragon 8c compute platform. Lenovo is yet to announce prices of the IdeaPad 5G as well as IdeaPad 4G LTE.

Available in 14-inch and 16-inch screen sizes, the IdeaPad 5i Pro and IdeaPad 5 Pro are more mainstream notebooks.

Lavie Mini concept PC
Perhaps the most interesting device Lenovo has announced at CES 2021 is the Lavie Mini concept PC. Not many know Lenovo has a joint venture with NEC Corporation and the two companies sell Lavie-branded notebooks in Japan. The Lavie Mini is essentially an 8-inch ultra-mobile PC that can be used in multiple ways with compatible accessories. The notebook weighs 579 grams and is small enough to fit in a medium-sized messenger bag. Internally, it’s powered by Intel’s 11th Core i7 mobile processor, up to 512GB SSD of storage, 16GB LPDDR4 of memory, and a battery capacity of up to 26WH. Since this is a prototype device, we really don’t know if the Lavie Mini PC will be commercially available anytime soon.
New monitors, Lenovo Tab P11
Besides the above-mentioned products, Lenovo has also introduced the L24i-30 and L27e-3o IPS monitors that can be used for both entertainment and productivity needs.
