In addition to the all-in-one PC that’s basically one of the most advanced Microsoft Surface Studio alternatives, Lenovo also used the CES 2019 show to take the wraps off the Yoga S940.

While the name might not say much at first, this new Yoga laptop is packed with AI technology, and it all starts with a feature that the company calls Smart Assist.

The purpose of this new tool is to use sensors and AI to provide you with innovative features like alerting you whenever someone is looking over your shoulder right into the screen.

Furthermore, the AI-based tech can detect when you move your eyes to an external screen connected to your laptop, so it can automatically move the content where your eyes and gaze are.

Lenovo says that AI features can also help during video calls, so when you’re talking to a contact, all ambient noises are automatically reduced to reduce disruptions.

Powered by Windows 10

And there’s more. Smart Assist also packs a Windows Hello-based camera, which allows you to log in to your device without providing a password, and the system can learn the way you use the device and optimize power settings for longer battery life. Lenovo says that in some cases, you can get up to 15 hours of battery life in FHD mode.

In terms of hardware, the device runs on Whiskey Lake CPUs up to Intel Core i7-8700T, and it can be equipped with a maximum of 16GB RAM and 1TB of storage. It features a 13.9-inch display that also supports 4K resolutions with 500 nits peak brightness.

The laptop tips the scales at just 1.2kg (2.65lbs) light and is only 12.2mm (0.48in) thin. It obviously runs Windows 10.

Lenovo will begin selling the Yoga S940 in May this year, and the base model will be priced at $1,499.
