This sleek 27-inch all-in-one PC connects to your phone and features a rotating screen

Written by admin

Lenovo is no stranger to crazy, transformative tech ideas, and after its 360-degree bending yoga laptops, it has now unveiled a brand new all-in-one PC that comes with a 27-inch rotating screen and lets you your phone wirelessly.

The Lenovo Yoga AIO 7 as it is eloquently called resembles existing rotating screens, but is one of the few all-in-ones with such functionality. It also comes as a successor to an original model released last year that had riveting success. Having a vertical screen is great for social media apps like Instagram and TikTok, but it’s not just that, as business users often use these screens to navigate press releases and other documents more easily.

However, the new feature this year is effortless connectivity for smartphones and laptops. You can cast your smartphone wirelessly to the Yoga AIO 7, provided your phone supports one of the following standards: DLNA, AirPlay, Miracast or LeLink.

This includes most phones. iPhones support AirPlay, most Samsung Galaxy models come with Miracast support, and only Pixel models don’t support Miracast. If you want to connect a laptop, all you need is a working USB-C port to extend the laptop screen to the Yoga AIO 7 and use it as a second screen.

And what a second display it makes: You get a 27″ 4K panel with 95 percent DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, meaning you get more vibrant colors than most panels limited to just sRGB colors. For better viewing, you can the monitor also tilts at 5 and 15 degrees and can be lifted up to 72mm. The all-in-one also comes with 5W JBL speakers, more powerful than the previous model.

The bad news is that Lenovo won’t be selling the Yoga AIO 7 in North America, so users in the US and Canada will have to look for something similar if it ever comes out. In other countries where the Lenovo AIO 7 will be available, it will be sold at prices starting at $1,599.

And here’s a list of the PC’s specs, in case you’re interested:

  • AMD Ryzen 7 6800H / Ryzen 5 6600H APU Options
  • Up to a Radeon RX 6600M dGPU with 8 GB VRAM
