Lenovo is adding the new 13-inch Lenovo IdeaPad S340 to its range of laptops. The S340 is a small workhorse – weighing in at just 1.3kg. The laptop can feature up to Intel’s latest 10th-gen mobile processors and up to 16GB of RAM.

There’s also an Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU inside, as well as Dolby Audio, front-facing microphones and quiet fans, and Lenovo is touting up to eight-hour battery life.

The 13-inch Lenovo IdeaPad S340 does not yet have a UK release date.

The S540 has a premium look with an ultra-slim and aluminium body. The quality extends to the screen with a QHD display option available.

The laptop uses Lenovo’s Q-Control technology to help users manage power and performance – the technology uses AI and machine learning to monitor your task loads and thermals in order to optimise battery life.

Lenovo’s 2019 desktop offering has added the IdeaCentre A540 all-in-one PC. The all-in-one is available in 24-inch and 27-inch sizes 

The new IdeaCentre A540 is another device in Lenovo’s 2019 range that looks very stylish. The PC has a party trick too – the base which contains the device’s internals also acts as a wireless charging pad.

The actual internals can go up to a 9th-gen Intel Core i7 processor and an AMD Radeon RX560 GPU in the 27-inch model. While the 24-inch model can also be equipped with an AMD Ryzen processor if preferred.

The 27-inch model comes with a QHD display as well as integrated JBL by Harman speakers powered by Dolby Audio. Both displays have an option to include a touchscreen variant of the screen.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre A540 will start at €799.99 (~£726) for the 24-inch model and €999.99 (~£907) for the 27-inch model. Both are expected to be available from September.
