Lenovo Apresenta o ThinkPAd Helix “Rip and Flip” e o Primeiro Mini-Ultrabook Multimode

A Lenovo (HKSE:0992) (PINK SHEETS:LNVGY) anunciou hoje dois novos integrantes de sua família de dispositivos conversíveis laptop-tablet: o ThinkPad Helix, um conversível premium para profissionais da área de negócios, com um design inovador “rip and flip” - um modelo para a próxima geração de design para laptops – e um IdeaPad Yoga 11S mais potente e produtivo, o primeiro first mini Ultrabook™ multimode equipado com potentes processadores Intel e sistema Windows 8.

"Nossa incomparável família de conversíveis dá aos consumidores - estudantes, profissionais da área de negócios e quaisquer outros segmentos - a oportunidade de escolher o mais adequado a suas necessidades", disse Peter Hortensius, presidente da Product Group e vice-presidente sênior da Lenovo. "O ThinkPad Helix oferece aos profisisonais da área de negócios dois dispositivos em um incrível formato. Ele é um Ultrabook de alta performance, fino e leve, com um tablet separável equipado com Windows 8. Também acrescentamos mais potência e produtividade no novo IdeaPad Yoga 11S mini-Ultrabook, de modo que ele agora é capaz de desempenhar quaisquer tarefas de computação móvel que o consumidor deseje."

ThinkPad Helix Reúne Laptop, Tablet e muito mais com a tela “Rip and Flip”

O ThinkPad premium conversível, da série Helix, define a próxima geração de computadores móveis com seu inovador “rip and flip”. Este design especial dá aos usuários total liberdade em termos de mobilidade e versatilidade, com quatro maneiras de usá-lo.

O ThinkPad Helix funciona, primeiro, como um Ultrabook de alta performance. Para acrescentar mobilidade, o tablet de 11,6 polegadas pode ser separado da base transformando-se no mais fino exemplar da geração Intel® 3rd Core™ full-function com vPro. Além da mobilidade, o tablet pesa apenas 835 grams, o que o torna o mais leve de sua classe1. Diferentemente de outros conversíveis, a inovadora tela “rip and flip” permite ao usuário inclinar o tablet a 180° e virá-lo ao contrário sobre a base – este modo, chamado Stand, transforma o Helix em uma mini-central de cinema ou de apresentações profissionais. Desta posição, o usuário também pode dobrar a tela para baixo e usá-lo como um tablet mantendo a conexão à base para acrescentar conectividade e portas.

Além de seu design versátil, o ThinkPad Helix vem com características excepcionais de performance e produtividade, fundamentais para este tipo de dispositivo. Um Ultrabook top de linha, o ThinkPad Helix funciona por até 10 horas para trabalho e lazer. Navigação e interatividade são fáceis, com a caneta on-board precisa, teclado de tamanho cheio e o novo clickpad de cinco botões, que disponibiliza 20 por cento a mais de superfície do que o tradicional. Na condição de tela mais brilhante do portfólio de ThinkPads da marca, o display de alta definição IPS 1080p do Helix de 11,6 polegadas oferece imagens vibrantes, rápidas e com a máxima clareza em praticamente qualquer ambiente.

Para que você tenha conectividade em virtualmente qualquer lugar, o ThinkPad Helix vem com wireless LTE2 de alta velocidade, opcional, e é o primeiro a usar a novíssima tecnologia Near Field Communications (NFC), que permite aos dispositivos compartilhar dados continuamente, apenas emparelhando-os. Além disto, o Helix mantém a confiabilidade da marca ThinkPad, características melhoradas de segurança e comodidade necessários aos grandes negócios, incluindo Intel® vPro. O Helix redefine as expectativas para a computação móvel ao reunir tecnologia inovadora e engenharia, eliminando a necessidade de carregar um laptop e um tablet.

IdeaPad Yoga 11S – um Ultrabook Pequeno, Mas Poderoso

Agora o consumidor ten outra opção de escolha entre os inovadores "flip and fold" conversíveis IdeaPad Yoga da Lenovo com dobradiça de 360°. O novo Yoga 11S vem equipado com um novo lineup de baixa potência da Intel com processador de 3a geração Intel® Core™ i5 e Windows 8, para dar ao usuário toda a capacidade de multitarefas e a possibilidade de usar os aplicativos do Office, tudo em uma estrutura leve, com espessura de 0,68 polegadas. Como no seu antecessor, os usuários podem utilizar o Yoga 11S como um laptop ou girar a tela transformando-o em um tablet grande. Podem até mesmo converter o Yoga 11S em modelos verticais ou tipo tenda para assistir a filmes com economia de espaço, pois ele vem ajustado com áudio Dolby Home Theatre e possui integrado o sistema de gráficos rápidos e de alta definição.

O IdeaPad Yoga 11S tem display HD IPS de 11,6 polegadas, que aceita multi-touch com até 10 dedos e vem equipado com características únicas, antes só disponíveis no Yoga 13: o controle de movimentos permite que o usuário só precise mover a mão na frente da webcam para passar fotos, vídeos e outros documentos; além disto, com o Lenovo Transition, os usuários podem abrir automaticamente aplicativos como o PowerPoint em tela cheia, quando o Yoga estiver sendo usado em seus outros três modos: tenda, vertical ou tablet.

O IdeaPad Yoga 11S também tem a mesma atraente cobertura emborrachada e o exterior macio do IdeaPad Yoga 13 e estará disponível nas cores cinza metálico e laranja Clementine.

A Lenovo oferece um conjunto completo de serviços para os convertíveis, entre eles atualziações da garantia In-Home para serviços na casa ou empresa do consumidor e a Proteção contra Danos Acidentais sobre produtos selecioandos, para ajudar a garantir o produto contra danos causados por acidentes como quedas e derramamento de líquidos.
