#CarryYourCool With Lenovo YOGA...

Launch of the next generation of YOGA, line of 2-in-1 laptops for students.

Tuesday, June 9.

The Oberoi, New Delhi.

Last week, I had the privilege and pleasure of attending two tech launches, in a single day. Back-to-back.

One was about my favorite pass time and the Media Invite to the launch of revolutionary products in the digital imaging industry by Canon, and the other, another Media Invite to the launch of the Second Gen Laptop cum Tablets by Lenovo.

Lenovo stands as an  in-house preference, as I myself work on a Lenovo G series.

When I had blogged about Lenovo YOGA, incorporating technology and creative writing in the past, the time that they had just begun, I found the YOGA, as a Tablet, to be quite innovative indeed.

According to me, YOGA's flexibility and mobility are the ones to be envied. YOGA has always focused on user-centric design and that is what makes it appeal to me.

I had the good fortune of listening to Mr. Shailendra Katyal, Director, Home and Small Business, Lenovo India, and understanding the brand concept behind YOGA, who had the following to say:

"Globally we are the leaders in the consumer convertible PC space. We achieved this by constantly innovating and stretching the boundaries of what a PC stands for. The YOGA franchise the representation of this consumer-centric design and engineering. We are happy to make the YOGA franchise, through this new line of products, accessible to a much wider audience."

Since the YOGA is powered by Intel, Mr. Sandeep Aurora, Director, Marketing and Market Development, Intel South Asia, also commented:

"The rise of new personal computing experiences, intelligent and connected devices are redefining the relationship between consumers and technology. Our goal with Intel technology is to help solve real problems and enable experiences that are truly desired by people and businesses. We are extremely proud of our collaboration with Lenovo and are confident that the new YOGA series 2 in 1s powered by the Intel Processors will allow consumers to get the best of both worlds with a razor-thin laptop and ultra-fast tablet in one allowing users to easily switch back and forth from productive tasks to immersive entertainment in a flash."

I personally feel that the versatile convertibility of the YOGA allows room for adaptability, hence broadening the horizon of what 'more' could be done with the device in hand.

  1. These prices are like MacBooks. I wonder how they match up against each other.

    1. Each device is meant for a different class of users.
      The Yoga 3 Pro matches up for professional-segment users while Yoga 300 is meant for students.
      There is no competition among the devices themselves.
      Keep Visiting. :)
