A unique offering in the new series is the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i. Its predecessor was the world's first full-sized dual-screen OLED laptop. The new model comes with compelling features such as Intel's new Core Ultra Processors, a PureSight OLED 2.8K screen and a rotating Bowers & Wilkins soundbar.

Lenovo also released an array of products catering to the small and medium-sized business (SMB) market. This includes innovation-packed ThinkBook products, ThinkCentre desktops, and AI PC enhancements.
