Users simply type whatever they want to see, and the system instantly creates a visual representation.
Headlining the new generation of Lenovo Yoga laptops are the Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i (16”, 9) and the Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1 (14”, 9), designed for creators with uncompromising standards, both premium laptops are MIL-STD-810H1 rated and are packed with cutting-edge components, including the latest Intel® Core™ Ultra Processors and a physical Lenovo AI Core Chip. Both models also feature a Copilot key, which harnesses the capabilities of AI to deliver relevant answers, summarize emails, generate images, and more.

New Wave of Productive and Creative Power
Under a Lenovo AI Now solution umbrella, Lenovo is continuing the development of a personalized AI solution designed to enable end-user interaction on the keyboard and through natural language. The provisionally named Lenovo AI Now Personal Assistant delivers personalized interactive experiences based on a user’s on-device knowledge base.
Lenovo showcased its latest repertoire of Yoga AI laptops that supercharge the creative process, a tablet that invites users to play and learn, IdeaPad™ laptops designed for the everyday user, and peripherals for the modern world.
The AI Assistant will streamline workflows and enhance collaboration in a more personal and immersive manner.

Lenovo AI Now Personal Assistant will begin rollout in the first half of 2024 in China.
On top of this, Lenovo also showcased two unique proof-of-concept devices at CES: the Mechanical Energy Harvesting Combo and the Lenovo ThinkBook 13x Gen 4 SPE.

Meanwhile, the Lenovo ThinkBook 13x Gen 4 SPE leverages E Ink Prism™ technology where users can customize the exterior cover in various patterns, creating a unique notebook appearance. This concept supports up to one thousand different images, allowing users to express their personalities too.
