The Lenovo S340 laptop comes in two touchscreen display sizes, 14-inch and 15-inch, and you can purchase it in four different color options; Onyx Black, Sand Pink, Abyss Blue, and Platinum Grey. You can choose to have either 8th generation Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors inside, or switch to AMD’s Rysen 7 chip. The notebook itself is made of a carbon fiber material with an aluminum finish which allows it to weigh between 3.72 pounds and 3.9 pounds, depending on the model.
The laptop supports up to 12GB of RAM and up to 2TB of hard drive storage, with a 128GB or 256GB hybrid drive for booting. Battery life should last up to 10 hours, again depending on the model you get. You can buy the Intel-based Lenovo S340 in March starting at 599 euros (~$680), while the AMD-based model arrives in April starting at 549 euros (~$623).
The Lenovo S540 laptop will offer a bit more in terms of performance. It also comes in two display sizes, 14-inch and 15-inch, along with your choice of either 8th generation Intel Core processors inside, or AMD’s Rysen 7 chip. However, you also have the option of adding a dedicated graphics chip inside as well — either the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 GPU, or the AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 GPU. The battery inside the notebook should also last longer, up to 12 hours in a single charge. The laptop supports up to 12GB of RAM and up to 2TB of hard drive storage, or you can get an SSD with up to 512GB of storage.
You can buy the 14-inch Intel-based Lenovo S540 in March, or the 15-inch model in April, starting at 899 euros (~$1020), while the AMD-based model is also coming in April starting at 799 euros (~$906).
There’s also the Lenovo C340 laptop, which is a 2-in-1 convertible with a rotating 360-degree touchscreen display. Once again, you have the choice of two display sizes, 14-inch and 15-inch, along with your choice of either 8th generation Intel Core processors inside, or AMD’s Rysen 7, 5, 3 or Athlon chips. The laptop supports up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage, and the battery life should last up to 8 hours. You can buy the 14-inch Intel-based Lenovo S540 in March, or 599 euros, while the AMD-based model will go on sale in April starting at 599 euros (~$906).
Finally, we have the Lenovo ThinkVision M14. This is the perfect portable display for those looking to get some second screen action out of their laptop experience. It has a 14-inch full HD display, but is only 1.3 pounds and is just 4.6mm thick, making it easy to travel with. It also has a stand that allows owners to change the angle of the display. It has two USB-C ports, which allows it to charge up, or be connected to another laptop or PC to serve as a second screen. It will go on sale in June for 229 euros (~$260).
