Over the last few weeks people have had to start working from home and we all know why so I’ll try my best to write this piece without mentioning that word. Are you new to working from home? we recently wrote an article with the top tips for working from home which might help.

However, if you work in a job where you look after a lot of data, have to do graphics, video, large files or any number of other high-performance tasks, then chances are the crappy lappy the office found under the stairs ain’t going to hack it. Luckily there are options. In this article I’m namely looking at three high-performance products for three reasons:

  • Lenovo traditionally offer comparable products at lower prices
  • Great personal machines that have the power to be used for work
  • I like their stuff

So let’s take a look at my three high-performance laptops of choice:

Yoga S940

The ultraism Yoga S940 offers elevated design with no compromise, featuring premium entertainment and a range of intelligent features designed to make your life easier. Enjoy hands-free login, eye-tracking AI that anticipates your needs, and more.

When you step away from your Yoga S940, the display automatically darkens as the content is saved, to protect both your privacy and your work. And keep your messy home office to yourself, thanks to BackBlur, which un-focuses content behind you during video chats The 14” laptop also comes with Alexa built-in and far-field microphones, so all you have to do is ask from up to 4 meters away.
