Lenovo unveiled its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops with its new 14-inch flagship convertible laptop the Lenovo Yoga 9i, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 made with recycled materials. This year at CES, Lenovo also announced three new Q-series consumer monitors, the Lenovo Q27h-20, Lenovo Q27q-20 and Lenovo Q24i-20, that perfectly balance style and functionality for the home.
Whether consumers need a fully-equipped multimedia experience as they play, learn, binge shows, pay bills, or create content with powerful Windows 11 performance, Lenovo has one and all covered with its contemporary lineup of PCs. The new Yoga PCs can even remind folks of what’s on their shopping list as they’re heading out with integrated smart features like Show Mode for PC2 from Alexa®, another first brought by Lenovo. Another highlight for the Yoga portfolio this year is the introduction of Lenovo’s ground-breaking CO2 Offset Service that will now give consumers, and not just businesses, the chance to compensate for the environmental impacts associated with their Lenovo Yoga PC to contribute to a more sustainable future.
Fresh and yet with the familiar elements fans love, Yoga’s minimalist-meets-luxury design marks a significant shift towards humanized forms and emotive aesthetics creating a bespoke modern experience. With its new vertically-flipped brand treatment, this visually-unique style doesn’t cut corners, instead, it rounds them into comfortably-curved edges, and ushers in a gender-neutral color palette, more recycled materials, and luxury finishes. Decidedly optimistic about thriving in the next reality, Lenovo continues its mission of leading and delivering ‘smarter tech for all’ – focusing on sustainable and inclusive design.

Shown in Storm Grey, the Yoga 9i introduces new 1-Click Function Keys to make remote work and play easier
The Yoga 9i’s most significant update may be the least obvious. To keep up with today’s busy hybrid learning and working lifestyle, this convertible also brings productivity innovations to the market with easier one-handed opening for multitasking convenience, and an untraditional edge-to-edge keyboard design layout offering a bar of new 1-Click Function Keys with five additional shortcut keys marked with user-friendly icons for quick access to frequently used features, such as:
• A shortcut to shifting into Smart Power performance mode that enables higher performance or longer battery life depending on what you’re doing at the time – without having to remember the previous combination of Fn+Q keys. Just look for the performance icon to enable Smart Power that optimizes system battery life and cooler thermals with up to 28W TDP and a 75Whr battery.
• The clever Background Blur function that instantly helps to protect the privacy of one’s surroundings on video calls via Microsoft Teams or other collaboration platforms with just a click; to show a clear image of you and your background once more, just press the key again.
• The sound bar built into Yoga 9i’s 360-degree hinge provided Lenovo’s design and engineering teams with the unique opportunity to add a smarter Audio mode changing function key that we call Vibe Check, that helps users better perceive differences between nuanced audio profiles for a more satisfying listening experience for practically any type of entertainment. Choose from music mode, to gaming mode or movie mode for a greater sound effect that doesn’t kill the vibe.
• In addition to smart sense lighting that auto-adjusts the keyboard’s backlighting based on ambient light, there’s the Color mode key that makes it easy for users to switch their system appearance between dark and light mode via Windows’ native color settings feature to see which works best. Besides giving your eyes a break, enabling dark mode for an OLED display can potentially help preserve the life of the battery, and it comes in handy in low-lit environments.
• In the same column of keys, you’ll discover that the Fingerprint reader was placed here instead of where your wrists typically hit the palm rest for added comfort and a cleaner appearance. It also has a FHD infrared (IR) camera with convenient smart login and electronic privacy shutter.

Work and Play While Saving the Planet – Yoga 6
Intuitive design, technology and fashion are all changing, and in some cases starting to merge together and in case you hadn't noticed, there's a lot of talk about the environment right now. And in many ways, Lenovo is ahead of the curve with the new Yoga 6 (13”, 7) convertible laptop that was inspired by all the ways we make choices in our daily lives that affect the environment.
The Yoga 6 with fabric-wrapped cover in Dark Teal is made with recycled water bottles and recycled aluminum
Living more sustainably can start with simply choosing a 2-in-1 laptop in Dark Teal hue made with recycled materials, including a cover made from recycled aluminum, or a fabric-wrapped cover option made with 50 percent recycled plastics and treated with a stain-resistant finish for resilience. Just think, that plastic bottle in the recycling bin today could be used to help make two fabric covers tomorrow. Thirty percent of recycled plastics were used in the power adapter. The Yoga 6 is also free of mercury, arsenic, and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free, and comes ENERGY STAR® certified and EPEAT Silver™ certified for meeting energy saving and environmental standards.
Nearly 25 percent of Yoga 6’s battery cells use post-consumption plastic; even the laptop’s packaging is the “greenest” we’ve ever offered on Yoga by sourcing sustainable paper packaging from responsibly managed and FSC® certified forests. Likewise, 90 percent of the protective cushion inside the box was made from recycled plastic. Besides being more eco-friendly, this lightweight convertible is powerful with AMD Ryzen™ 7 5700U Mobile Processor and integrated AMD Radeon™ Graphics built on leading 7nm technology to deliver ultra-fast performance via up to 8 powerful cores, good value with sleek Windows 11 user experience, and a hyper-efficient battery life6 plus Rapid Charge Boost.8

Lenovo CO2 Offset Service – Now for Consumers!
For users who want to take it a step further and actively give back to the environment, Lenovo introduces its CO2 Offset Service for consumers, launching first on all Lenovo Legion™ and Yoga PCs, including those announced today. To give users a simple and transparent way to compensate for the environmental impact of their purchased device, Lenovo has calculated the average carbon emissions of its PCs across their lifecycle, from manufacture and shipment, all the way through usage. At the point of purchase, users get the chance to opt in and make a contribution that is based on the cost of those emissions to one of several different United Nations Climate Action projects, including those that help to improve renewable energy, reduce air pollution, or enhance safe waste disposal.
Since globally launching this service in January 2021, Lenovo has helped commercial companies offset more than 500,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide, the equivalent of greenhouse gas emitted from more than 100,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.9 Now through this service expansion to the consumer space, Yoga and Lenovo Legion users interested in addressing climate change through CO2 compensation have a simple and transparent way to do so at the click of a button.
