Manila, Philippines, August 31, 2016 – We are now in an era, where technology features largely and as an essential aid to learning, in the academic environment. Devices such as laptops and tablets help students to cultivate needed skills, as well as enable teachers to run a fun and interactive curriculum and classroom atmosphere. The world’s No. 1 PC maker, Lenovo, is committed to making the process of education more enriching and more empowering with devices that are designed to enhance student engagement and that put the connected universe of knowledge at students’ fingertips. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is the ideal notebook to do just these things, immersing students in education through experience.
“The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is a multi-function, adaptable and durable laptop that can empower students across all subjects and in a diversity of learning environments. It is designed, as all Lenovo devices are, to explore new reaches of potential, including learning potential,” said Lenovo Philippines’ Country General Manager, Michael Ngan. “Our youth are digital natives who learn in ways that have developed around the technologies that they are growing up with. To ensure that they grow up with a full set of experiences, we develop devices that make their ability to tap into resources and to make connections, a natural part of life. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is also designed to make it easier for teachers to show all sides of their subject matter, and to bring the world inside the classroom,” Ngan added.
Superior Build Quality
Durability is one of the major concerns when deploying computers and laptops in schools. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e, even with slender dimensions, is built to withstand rough handling. This device is protected by a rubber bumper with strengthened brackets to absorb shock in case the device is dropped. To ensure its build quality, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e has undergone military-specification testing including exposure to extreme conditions such as temperature shocks, low and high pressure areas, high humidity, hard vibration and also to dust.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e sports an 11.6-inch Dragontail Glass Multi-touch display that is six times stronger than conventional glass but remains sensitive enough to detect touch commands. The scratch- and crack-proof glass perfectly complements the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e’s rugged design, making it a smart choice for students.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e may be used in four different modes: laptop, tablet, tent or stand. When switching to different modes, the unique and flexible design of this device allows the screen to flip 360 degrees depending on the selected mode. Even school or university management and administrative staff will find a mode that is the most convenient and ergonomic for their day-to-day running of the campus.
The laptop mode lets students or teachers make full use of the physical keyboard and works best for typing papers and reports. Students can easily switch to tablet mode and utilize the 10-point multi-touch screen for easier and faster navigation through the web. In ‘tent’ or ‘stand’ mode, this convertible gizmo makes delivering presentations or converging for small group discussions a breeze. For users who still intuitively reach for a pen, the Yoga 11e’s Active Pen offers pin-point recognition for utmost accuracy, so that students and teachers can easily translate bright ideas into notes, scribbles, and drawings and ultimately into productive outcomes.
Great minds are fueled further when provided with the best tools. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e houses an Intel Broadwell Core M-5Y10c Processor with the latest Windows 8.1 operating system to allow students to run multiple applications smoothly. This also helps them work efficiently on their tasks, assignments and major projects without having to leave their seats.
Educators will thank the ThinkPad Yoga 11e’s Intel Integrated graphics card when they want to show HD films to translate abstract concepts into clear mental images. Teachers can easily connect to a television or a projector with the device’s HDMI output when projecting a movie or a presentation for better viewing.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e promotes learning everywhere with its low-light-sensitive, 720p HD webcam with face-tracking. This enables teachers hold online lectures or tutorials from wherever they are through video conferencing. Students would also be able to see their classmates clearly and interact with them. The device’s Dolby Advanced Audio stereo speakers deliver crisp and high quality sounds to create further immersion. Users can also transfer data faster with the Lenovo ThinkPad’s USB 3.0 technology that is 10 times faster than previous technologies.
The wide range of synergies between new technologies and educational environments creates endless opportunity for better teacher-student connection, improved exploration of subjects in breadth and depth, and more effective learning. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e was made to make work and play a whole lot more productive, and a whole lot more enjoyable.
The ThinkPad Yoga 11e is available to education customer segment through volume deals.
