Chinese New Year is just around the corner. How do we know? Go to any shopping malls in Malaysia and you will already hear Chinese New Year music playing, you will see boxes after boxes of Mandarin oranges, and then everywhere around you is either turning red, or gold. Mind you this has been the decorations right after Christmas 2016. But that is a reminder of how much Malaysians love their Chinese New Year festival. Every Chinese New Year as well we go on a shopping spree, everything you own must be new. Lenovo understands that too, at the time leading up to the festivities there are plenty of choices for you; too much in fact. Not to worry though, Lenovo has made it easier for you to choose which gadgets to get for the year of the Cock (as in male chicken).
Lenovo Miix 510
Are you a professional? Are you a creative person? Do you need to be creative on the go? Check out the Lenovo Miix 510. If you think you need to spend a bomb to have a 2-in-1 PC with a pen stylus to unleash your creativity, think again. The Lenovo Miix 510 starts at MYR2,649 inclusive of GST.
This 12.2″ Full HD 1080p device also comes with a detachable keyboard for extra versatility along with the 170° built-in kickstand. It runs on Windows 10 so you get the full benefit of running a full PC app if you need it to with the highly capable Intel Core i7*. Having up to 8GB of RAM would help if you need to use apps like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator as well. You have 256GB* of SSD to play with as well to store all those projects. All that on 7.5 hours battery life, nearly a whole day of jumping around while keeping that creative juice flowing.
f course, you need to relax as well, that is why Lenovo fitted the device with DolbyTM stereo speakers for full media immersion. You could even take photos with the 5-Megapixel rear camera alongside the 2-Megapixel front-facing camera that doubles as an HD webcam. If you are planning to make webcam or VoIP calls, you will appreciate its noise cancelling dual microphones. Even with all that, it still weighs a mere 880g; well under 1kg.
Lenovo Yoga Book
What about if you are a working professional that is always on-the-go? A road warrior, if you might. There is a device for that too; enter the Lenovo Yoga Book.
One of the deciding factor when you are always on-the-go when it comes to your devices is the battery life. Look no further, this can give you up to 12 hours on a single charge. Quite a feat when you know that the battery is technically powering two touch screens. The Lenovo 2-in-1 Windows 10 device comes with their new Halo keyboard, a full virtual keyboard that will adapt to your typing style. It is claimed to be better and faster than physical keyboard too without sacrificing comfort. As we know all too well in the PC industry, Lenovo makes some of the best laptop keyboards so why doubt them now?
When you need to use a pen, you can find it tucked away neatly within the body of the laptop. You can turn the keyboard off completely and start to use it like a drawing pad when you need it to. If you like, you can swivel the whole keyboard 360º, all the way to the back of the screen to use it like a tablet. You then have the whole 10.1-inch display as your canvas. It is light too at 690g. At 4.5mm thick spread-out (opened), it barely takes up any space too when you need it. So versatile, you may not want to switch to any other platform.
The Lenovo Yoga Book is priced starting from MYR2,699 inclusive of GST. There are the colour choices of Carbon Black, Champagne Gold, or Gunmetal Grey for the Android version. For the Windows variant, you can only get it in Carbon Black for that professional look.
Lenovo Phab 2 Pro

The Tango project is truly in a class of its own. Cooked in Google’s labs, it really is a step forward to an augmented reality future.
