As expected, AI tech is all over CES this year and Lenovo’s refresh of the Yoga line is no exception. All of Lenovo’s Yoga laptops this year will come with Lenovo Yoga Creator Zone pre-installed. Yoga Creator Zone is a software developed for creators, artists, and general users who need an easy to use image generation tool. Like many other image generation AI tools available, Yoga Creator Zone will accept text prompts to create images. It will also work with existing sketches, to help fully realize your artistic vision.
The new Yoga line will continue Lenovo’s commitment to reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 by using plastic-free packaging, FSCTM-certified paper boxes that are responsibly sourced, and a recycled aluminum chassis with at least 50% recycled aluminum in the base cover.
We're on the scene in Las Vegas to check out the latest tech at this year's CES 2024 showcase.
