Productivity and Microsoft Office are as inseparable as fish and water. That in mind, Lenovo on Thursday, announced a partnership with Microsoft to offer preinstall Windows 10-based consumer PCs with Office Home & Student 2019 suite. The unprecedented move will see Lenovo customers enjoying lifetime access to the full version of Microsoft’s leading productivity suite including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive. Lenovo, at the same event, launched its new IdeaPad C340, S340, S540, and L340 notebook PCs and IdeaCentre AIO A340 all-in-one desktop PC, as well as kicking off its “Exclusively Yours” campaign.
[UPDATE] Lenovo Malaysia has informed me that in order to enjoy the free pre-installed Microsoft Office, purchase of products must be made at Lenovo’s retail stores.
Headlining Lenovo’s new lineup of device is the IdeaPad C340, a versatile, powerful notebook powered by up to the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor.
The notebook features a simplified but elegant new logo on the top cover, narrow bezels on its 14- or 15-inch Full HD display and an expanded touchpad.
The extended battery offers up to eight hours of juice and Rapid Charge technology enables it to charge up to 80 percent in just an hour. First introduced in its ThinkPad line, the C340 also features a privacy shutter for the webcam. The notebook also supports the Lenovo Active Pen (optional).
IdeaPad S340 & S540
Thin, light and powerful, the 15-inch IdeaPad S340 and S540 offer 8th Generation Intel Core processing power, super slim bezels on its 15.6-inch Full HD display and Dolby Audio. It also offers optional NVIDIA GeForce MX graphics for those who need more GPU processing power.
The overall design is thinner, with a Z dimension and new logo detailing. Like the C340, it also features a privacy shutter for its webcam, for enhanced security and privacy.
For more mainstream computing, the IdeaPad L340 offers an understated and refined design and equipped with handy features like Lenovo Vantage’s Eye Care Mode to reduce blue light emission. The TrueBlock Privacy Shutter for the webcam again ensures privacy, while rapid charging enables the notebook to charge up to full in approximately two hours.
IdeaCentre AIO A340
Perhaps the most impressive of the lot is the IdeaCentre AIO A340. Sleek and stunning, the AIO PC offers an incredible 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its borderless touchscreen display.
The unique asymmetrical stand is not only beautiful to look at but is also reliable and strong, able to take up to 12kg of load. Offered in Black and Foggy White, the PC features a cable collector that built directly into the stand so cables can be neatly tucked away. It’s powered by the latest Intel Core T series processors with discrete graphics.
