The IdeaPad C340, for example, is a two-in-one available in 14- and 15-inch versions with a fiberglass top and slim bezels — a design touch once solely found on Lenovo’s high-end laptops. The same goes for its webcam-blocking Privacy Shutter and rapid charging feature, which Lenovo says gets the battery to 80 percent in an hour. A backlit keyboard, active pen support and a fingerprint reader are available options as well.

Those prices will get you low-end components like an AMD Athlon 300U or Intel Pentium 5405U processors and a 1,366×768-pixel resolution TN display. But, you can also expect options like a full HD-resolution IPS display, up to a Core i7-8565U processor and discrete Nvidia GeForce MX230 graphics when it arrives in April. 1 Joining the C340 are the slim IdeaPad S340 and S540 laptops.

Lenovo also announced the IdeaCentre AIO A340 desktop. Available in 22- and 24-inch sizes, the full HD touchscreen all-in-one PC stands on an asymmetric steel tube base that skirts the line between modern office furniture and cheap lawn chair. Inside you’ll find up to an Intel Core i5-8400T processor with AMD Radeon 530 discrete graphics. It also arrives in April with prices starting at $500 for the 22-inch and $680 for the 24-inch.
