Lenovo's new desktop will be powered with up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, AMD Radeon RX 560 discrete graphics.

The Lenovo Yoga C730 has also been updated, and it comes with a gorgeous new 4K OLED touchscreen display, with a 100% color gamut that makes it a brilliant choice for photographers and digital artists.

Finally, we have the Lenovo Yoga A940, an all-in-one desktop PC that looks much like Microsoft's Surface Studio, although its overall design is a bit bulkier than Microsoft's model.

Packing a ton of handy features for both content creation and entertainment for almost $1,000 less than Microsoft's Surface Studio 2, the A940 could be the ultimate artist all-in-one when it launches in March 2019 for a starting price of $2,199. An 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor powers the laptop. Storage options include 256GB/512GB/1TB SSD. Graphics are delivered by the integrated UHD 620 chip. If you upgrade to the 4K display battery life is reduced to around 9.5 hours.

The 27-inch QHD or optional higher resolution UHD touchscreen monitor is mounted on a dual-hinge stand that easily converts from a vertical monitor position to a 25-degree drafting table. It includes an Active Pen 2 stylus that provides owners with 4,096 levels of sensitivity.

First off is the new Yoga S940, which is an incredibly slim and light laptop with Contour Glass that wraps around the display. The device features JBL Speakers and Dolby Atmos for headphones, as well as far-field microphones for Cortana and Alexa. A lighting strip on the bottom lets you see what's in front of you when you're working in the dark, it has a docking area to stash your keyboard, mouse and pen when you're not using them, and a Qi-compatible wireless charging pad on the base.

The Lenovo Yoga A940 is due for release in March starting at $2,3499.99.

The Precision Dial seems like a compelling alternative to Microsoft's $99 Surface Dial, since it plugs into either side of the screen instead of laying on top of it like Microsoft's version.

Coming in an Iron Grey finish, the Yoga C730 will be available in April, starting at $1649.99. The device, interestingly, won't be sold in the United States.

The laptop also supports Lenovo's "Smart Assist" features including touch-less login with the IR camera, eye-tracking, auto-leveling software for audio, "Smart Voice", and more.

The Yoga Mouse also packs a rechargeable battery that should last up to two months on a charge. It supports Bluetooth or USB connectivity. It has a twisting hinge design and contains a Laser beam when entering Presenter mode for easy pointing.
