At CES 2019, Lenovo announced the new Yoga A940 All-in-One device to take on Microsoft Surface Studio 2. The new Yoga A940 is designed for content creators. It comes with a large 27-inch optional 4K IPS touchscreen display with Dolby Vision and the display can be tilted to a comfortable 25-degree drawing mode.

Instead of creating a separate accessory like Surface Dial, Lenovo has built Precision Dial into the PC. Like Surface Dial, the Precision Dial will allow users to make more precise selections and adjustments to their content. The Yoga A940 will also allow the dial to be placed on either the left or right side of the PC.

The base of the Yoga A940 includes the Dolby Atmos Speaker System for rich audio experience. In addition to its built-in front-facing speakers, the Yoga A940 also comes with a second set of speakers under the display to ensure decent sound experience even in drawing mode.

The Yoga A940 is powered by up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, AMD Radeon RX 560 discrete graphics, up to 32GB DDR4 memory and up to 512GB PCIe SSD or up to 2TB SATA HDD storage.

Other highlights:

  • There’s an LED at the bottom of the display to light up your workspace.
  • It comes with infrared camera for Windows Hello authentication.
  • Wireless mobile charging is support in the base of the system.
  • Speak to Cortana or Alexa from up to 4 meters

The Lenovo Yoga A940 will start at $2,349.99 and will be available starting April 2019.
