The cheaper Yoga option is the C730 which offer similar specs as the S940 with the same 8th Gen Intel Core i7, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) panel and UHD 620 graphics.

Other Yoga S940 features include Lenovo's Smart Assist features such as an IR camera for Windows Hello login, automated environment focus for video conferencing, noise filtering software to reduce background sound during video calls, and Smart Voice Recognition for use with Alexa or Cortana digital assistants.

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. Inside, the Windows 10 notebook has an Intel 8th-gen Core i7 processor, support for up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. It also has a "Precision Dial" that can be used for fine-tuned adjustments in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, or Lightroom.

Oddly, it uses Lenovo's first-generation Active Pen with 2,048 levels of sensitivity rather than the newer Active Pen 2 and its 4,096 levels. Battery is claimed to last for up to 15 hours in FHD and 9.5 hours in UHD.

The big display can be purchased either with a 1080p or 4K resolution screen and inside you can get the PC with five Dolby Atmos speakers.

What's the Deal with Pre-Installs? Basically, you can't use or log in to Facebook unless you decide to update the placeholder app. Smartphone giant Samsung has apparently struck a deal with Facebook to force the installation of the app on its phones.

The Yoga brand has always been strongly associated with 2-in-1 designs, letting you transform your laptop into tent mode or even a tablet with its 360-degree display hinge.

The price of the Lenovo Yoga A940 (above) starts at $2,349.99 and will hit the shelves in March 2019. It also includes a built-in wireless charging station. This more horizontal angle is well suited for drawing and sketching with the included Active Pen 1.

Coming in an Iron Grey finish, the Yoga C730 will be available in April, starting at $1649.99. Unfortunately, it will not be available in the United States. It's Dolby Vision certified like some of Lenovo's other products, but that doesn't really tell you much about the display.

The product pipeline has never been better. "The services are on a tear", he said. Apple stock has lost 14 percent of its value over the last 12 months.

It is also worth mention that Lenovo has a $70 Yoga Mouse coming out in June. Resolution is 1,600 DPI and connects via Bluetooth 4.0 or 2.4GHz Wireless USB.

A somewhat gimmicky yet cool feature of the Yoga Mouse is its integrated "Laser Presenter". A swivel hinge at the mouse's mid-point allows it to operate as a V-shaped mouse or a flat laser pointer with slide control for giving PowerPoint presentations.
