With the 8th generation Intel Core processors, the Lenovo Yoga 920 might’ve just made a huge year-over-year mobile processor upgrade. And businesses, including small businesses engaged in design and other creative fields may end up the big beneficiaries.
The upgrade in processor and higher SSD storage means you and the members of your creative team won’t have to be chained to their desktops. Granted the 920 is not a budget model, but for businesses in the creative field and others, it has the right specs.
With the 920 you can use the more powerful pen to draw or highlight a presentation and collaborate on a conference with the HD video, and Fairfield microphone from anywhere. And if you are a Star Wars fan (or have any in your office), Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire versions with Gorilla Glass cover designs will be available in limited editions.
In a post on the official Lenovo (OTCMKTS:LNVGY) blog announcing the device, Chairman and CEO Yang Yuanqing, said, “Today we are standing at the beginning of the fourth revolution [that] will transform how we work and live — in ways that no one could imagine in the 18th century — or even 18 months ago.”
Key Specs of the Lenovo Yoga 920

Just like the newly released LV30 phone by Lenovo, the company is making a concerted effort to address creatives with innovative technology. Yuanqing added, “It is [the Yoga 920] Intelligent Transformation — a transformation that is driven by big data, cloud and AI.”
When Can You Get Your Hands on One?
