Recent research has revealed that over 200 million content creators use a computer for their work, at least once a week. These are photography professionals, videomakers and engineers / designers dealing with 3D modeling tools and software, as well as simple graphics enthusiasts. And it is precisely this market niche, made by prosumer hobbyists, freelancers and social media lovers, that has pushed Lenovo to create its own series of creator devices, which includes two notebooks, desktop PCs and monitors.
At CES 2020, we will have the opportunity to see live the new Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 and IdeaPad Creator 5 super laptops, the powerful IdeaCentre Creator 5 PC and the two 27-inch displays Lenovo Qreator 27 and Lenovo Q27h, but we can already give you some general information and preview it in the rendered images distributed by the Chinese company. We will obviously focus on the two notebooks, the only devices on which Lenovo has not provided details for availability and prices.
Lenovo Yoga Creator 7
Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 is the new premium laptop for content creator, with high quality audio, high definition screen and top performance. We don’t have detailed information about its data sheet, but for the moment we can tell you that it is made of metal – therefore light but robust – and equipped with 10th gen Intel Core processors (Ice Lake) up to the Core i7, 15.6-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) with 100% sRGB color gamut and optional Gorilla Glass, Dolby Atmos stereo speaker, backlit keyboard with numeric keypad and dedicated Nvidia graphics certainly top-of-the-range.
Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 weighs 1.9Kg and has a thickness of 16.4 mm, integrates WiFi 6 and boasts up to 13 hours of autonomy with support for fast charging (80% in an hour). Lenovo Q-Control modulates the performance of the workstation, pushing on the accelerator when creating animations, graphics and 3D photos, but with the help of an intelligent cooling system (precisely because managed by the AI) all operations will have a controlled thermal regime and optimization of autonomy (up to 20% more). To increase productivity, Lenovo Smart Assist comes into play which allows access to the system and automatic disconnection via the front IR camera with Windows Hello or the fingerprint reader.

Thanks to Modern Standby, users can lift the lid of their Yoga Creator 7 to have emails and notifications at their fingertips without waiting for the system to restart. And they can also ask Amazon Alexa to reply to an email or a message with a voice command.
The new Lenovo IdeaPad Creator 5 is a mainstream laptop that allows you to make digital content faster and at a reasonable price. Like its older brother, this model is also based on processors (up to) Intel Core i7 of the tenth generation, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 1TB on SSD PCIe and 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display (1920 x 1080 pixels) with 100% AdobeRGB %. Equipped with one of the latest Nvidia GPUs and Studio drivers, IdeaPad Creator 5 has an HD webcam with a physical privacy shutter and Dolby Audio speaker.

Weighing around 2.2 kg, this notebook supports all the features of Alexa, Lenovo Q-Control to increase productivity and the intelligent cooling system that controls temperatures and fan activity by optimizing battery life up to 20% more. The estimated autonomy is around 8 hours of continuous work and – even in this case – support for fast charging seems confirmed.
Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 and IdeaPad Creator 5 are part of Lenovo’s “Creator Edition” and are designed to help photographers, artists and designers to collaborate and take advantage of the technology for their work, while offering the tools necessary to increase productivity. In addition, the latest version of the “Lenovo Vantage” software offers a user experience tailored to creators with relevant content and exclusive offers. Users can add the Digital Content Creators dashboard to the taskbar to easily switch to their active apps.
