Lenovo has just revealed its new range of laptops and PCs at Mobile World Congress 2019. Here's all the specs and pricing information to know, along with our quick description of what to expect from each device.

While Lenovo's business laptop range is nothing to sniff at, we'll be focusing just on the new models most relevant to consumers, from laptops to PCs to their one interesting phone/tablet hybrid release.

Finally, this new IdeaPad is a 2-in-1 convertible laptop that can be used as a tablet as well. The battery life takes a hit compared to this model's IdeaPad cousins: it only lasts 8 hours, not 12, though it supports RapidCharge technology.

It comes with a fingerprint reader and an Active Pen support for easily inspired sketch artists. Once again, your two size options are the 14-inch or the 15-inch.

My favorite feature? The “TrueBlock Privacy Shutter,” a physical slide you can close to keep your PC's webcam in the dark when turned off. It's the little things.

Lenovo Tab V7 Tablet/Phone

Lenovo Tab V7Yes, you read that right – Lenovo has revealed a tablet/phone hybrid, or as Lenovo puts it, “a tablet with the DNA of a smartphone.” It's Lenovo's way of offering the bigger screen that consumers want, with a 6.9-inch HD display, while still fitting in your back pocket (provided you have a large one). The device has a 81 percent screen-to-body ratio, complete with bezels.

The processing power should be great, thanks to the octa-core Snapdragon 450, and the 5180 mAh battery will last you all day (30 hours of audio, or 10 hours of video/browsing). The camera specs are okay but not amazing. This device is definitely aimed at people who enjoy watching video on the go. It also works well as a kid-distracter when you need a portable entertainment system.

  • 6.9-inch Full HD display
  • 18:9 display ratio
  • 7.89 mm size
  • 195 grams weight
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB memory with 128GB microSD expansion
  • 5180 mAh battery
  • Rear fingerprint unlock
  • Front facial recognition unlock
  • Android 9.0 Pie
  • Starts at €249 (about $283)
  • Available April 2019

Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO A340

Either way, it'll look stylish in your home.

Should You Buy Them?

Lenovo's new models all seem to be holding up to the company's reputation for well-built products. If you're a Lenovo fan, there's a lot of enjoy, from the processing power to the sleek designs.

If you're in the US, however, you'll have to wait for pricing confirmation. Lenovo hasn't made their U.S. prices available yet, so watch this space for updates.
