Lenovo has taken on Microsoft’s Surface Studio, by unveiling its new Yoga A940 at CES 2019 for  US$1,000 less than its rival.

The new all-in-one Yoga A940 features a large pressure-sensitive touch screen, which like Microsoft’s Surface Studio caters to the design orientated, and creative professionals.

Its notable price difference (approx US$2,300 versus US$3,500) suggests the Yoga A940 is not strictly aimed at commercial usage.

Compatible with Lenovo’s Active Pen, the Yoga A940 features a 27-inch screen which can be configured to either a 4K or quad HD screen (2,560×1,440-pixel).

Some commentators have critiqued the computer’s compatibility with the first generation Active Pen (2,048 sensitivity levels), rather than Lenovo’s new Active Pen 2 (4,096 levels).

The Yoga A940 is Dolby Vision certified, and users can configure the computer as a Dolby Atmos system with suitable speakers.

Like Microsoft’s Dial, Lenovo has equipped a second-hand input device – the Precision Dial – which inputs into a USB port on either side.

The Yoga A940 will reportedly come with Precision Dial presets for Abobe Creative Cloud applications.

Addition features include a docking area to store a keyboard and mouse [when not in use], Qi-compatible wireless charging pad on the base, and bottom light for nighttime use.

Lenovo’s Yoga A940 will ship internationally in March, with Australian pricing and availability to be confirmed.
