As the new flagship of the Yoga lineup, the Yoga 920 is packed with a lot of great stuff, it weighs merely 1.39kg and all thanks to the slim bezels, it is a rather compact and lightweight device, the display supports a 4096 levels of pressure and with the help of the Lenovo Active Pen 2 stylus, users can experience a paper like writing and drawing experience on Windows Ink. Read on for all the details of Lenovo's new machines.

As for memory, there's a choice between 4GB and 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB PCIe SSD.

Lenovo also showed a pair of black/white Start Wars-themed Yoga 920s - the Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire for super fans of the franchise.

When it launches this October, the Yoga 920 will be available with an Intel 8th Generation Core i5 or Core i7, quad-core processor, potentially a huge improvement over the dual-core processors in the Yoga 910. The Yoga 720 has a rated battery life of up to 8 hours, which is rather decent. The laptop is powered by 7th-generation Intel Core i3, i5, i7 processors paired with 4GB/8GB of RAM and 128 GB SATA SSD/ 256 GB SATA SSD/512 GB SATA SSD of storage. That means you can call out to the laptop from across the room (even when it's in standby mode) and Microsoft's digital assistant will spring into action.

If you prefer something more portable, the Lenovo Miix 520 tablet-laptop hybrid might be what you need. An optional 8-megapixel WorldView that can capture images you can later edit in 3D is alsoavailable.

Yoga 920 will start at €1,599.99 in September 2017. Connectivity has been simplified - one USB-C (DisplayPort is supported) and one regular USB 3.0.

Australian David Roman the worldwide head of Marketing at Lenovo kicked off Lenovo's big reveal at IFA 2017 in some warehouse kilometers out from the centre of Berlin, the event had it all including Star Wars notebooks, Disney VR and an unbreakable glass Moto Z4. All three are thin and light and lovely.

The Home Assistant Pack will cost you only $69.99, while Lenovo's 4-series tablets start at a pretty affordable $129.99. Are you planning to get any of these devices? This pack is ideal for those who want to work while on the go.

Next up, you shouldn't be surprised to hear the Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality headset boasts pretty much the same capabilities as the Dell Visor and that unnamed immersive Asus wearable.

The headset comes to 1440 x 1440 displays with two six-degree-of freedom (6DOF) tracking cameras and connects over both HDMI/DisplayPort and USB.

The Explorer is expected to ship in October for $350 or $450 with motion controllers.
