Lenovo, the largest PC manufacturer, is bringing its enterprise/business friendly labels to its Yoga and Miix lineups. The company at the ongoing tradeshow CES announced the business editions of the Yoga 900 and Miix 200. The company insists that both the laptops have enhanced security features while maintaining most of the specifications and design same as their respective consumer versions.
First let’s look at the specs. The Yoga 900 is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor while the Miix 700 houses a Core m7 chipset. While most of the innards remain same as their non-business counterparts, there are some noticeable differences.
The Lenovo Yoga 900 Business Edition as well as the Lenovo Miix 700 Business Edition now feature a brighter display. The Lenovo Yoga 900 Business additionally now has 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a touch-capable high-resolution display of 3200×1800 pixels QHD+ screen resolution as the top-of-the-line offering.
The Lenovo Miix 700 Business Edition, on the other hand, comes in the champagne gold colour variant and features 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It comes with a 12-inch 2160×1440 pixels display with 400nits brightness and Gorilla Glass and an Intel RealSense R200 3D camera.
Now to the security features, both the laptops come with Intel TPM (Trusted Platform Module), delivering improved security such as better password protection on the system, built-in encryption and hashing mechanisms.
There’s no word on the pricing yet though the company says that it would begin shipping both the laptops in select regions beginning February.
“You may have seen our recent announcement of the consumer version of these products, wanted one, but then realized that your IT department would never allow them. So how about business optimized versions? Maybe you don’t want a ThinkPad, I can’t think why! You might be looking for something with a more exuberant design but you need business-class security and management features,” the company said.
