Windows 11 will leave millions of PCs behind when it launches on October 5th. If you’re one of many people searching for an upgrade, then Lenovo’s newly-announced Windows 11 laptops may fill the gap. They run on high-end AMD processors and pack a ton of killer features, like HDR support and discreet NVIDIA graphics.

We’re going to cover Lenovo’s new Windows 11 laptops and gaming monitors, but the company has also announced a new Chromebook Duet 5 tablet and other non-PC products.

Don’t mind sacrificing a little portability for performance? Lenovo’s new IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is just slightly thicker than the Slim 7 Carbon (though it weighs twice as much) and packs a much more powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor. It also comes with a larger 16-inch 2.5K display with an optional 120Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA graphics up to the RTX 3050.

Here’s the specs:

Why not buy a gaming monitor for your new PC? Lenovo’s new G24e-20 monitor packs a 23.8-inch FHD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and minimum 1ms response time.

Here’s the spec sheet:

  • Display: 23.8-inch FHD NearEdgeless anti-glare display with 120Hz refresh rate, 93 PPI pixel density, minimum 1ms response time
  • Color Support: 16.7 million colors with 8-bit depth
  • Connectivity: 1 HDMI 2.0 port, and 1 DisplayPort 1.2 connection (No Thunderbolt)
  • Sound: 3.5mm jack (No built-in speakers)
  • Tilt: Front and back
  • VESA Mounting: Yes
  • Extra Features: AMD FreeSync Premium, Cable Management
  • Price: Starts at $210

At just $210, the G24e-20 looks like a crazy good bargain. Lenovo says it will go on sale this October.

Screw it, why not go all the way? Lenovo is also launching a larger 27-inch version of its gaming monitor. The G27e-20 is a minor upgrade over its smaller sibling featuring near-identical specs.

Check it out:

  • Display: 27-inch FHD NearEdgeless anti-glare display with 120Hz refresh rate, 82 PPI pixel density, and minimum 1ms response time.
  • Color Support: 16.7 million colors with 8-bit depth
  • Connectivity: 1 HDMI 2.0 port, 1 DisplayPort 1.2 (No Thunderbolt connectivity)
  • Sound: 3.5mm jack (No built-in speakers)
  • Tilt: Front and back
  • VESA Mounting: Yes
  • Extra Features: AMD FreeSync Premium, Cable Management
  • Price: Starts at $240

The only thing worth noting here is that the 27-inch G27e-20 has a lower pixel density than the G24e-20, which is to be expected (but will lead to a slightly lower image quality). Lenovo will start selling the G27e-20 this October for $240.

Forget the gaming monitors—Lenovo is also launching a ThinkVision P27u-20 display for photo manipulation and other tasks that require an accurate screen. Its 4K 163 PPI panel and wide color support is perfect for creative work, though the 60Hz refresh rate and 4ms/6ms response time may turn off gamers (it’s still a fine display for gaming if you’re not obsessive).

Here’s the specs:

  • Display: 27-inch NearEdgeless anti-glare 4K panel with WLED backlight, 163 PPI, 4ms/6ms response time, 60Hz refresh rate and DisplayHDR 400
  • Color Support: 1.08 billion colors with 10-bit (8+FRC) depth
  • Connectivity: 1 Thunderbolt 4 input, 1 Thunderbolt 4 output, 2 HDMI 2.0 jacks, 1 DisplayPort 1.2 jack
  • Sound: Built-in 3W dual speakers, 3.5mm jack, optional soundbar support
  • Tilt: Front and back, left and right, lift, and pivot
  • VESA Mounting: Yes
  • Extra Features: Built-in USB jacks, Ethernet port (10M/100M/1000M), built-in cable management, detachable shade
  • Price: Starts at $770

The ThinkVision P27u-20 monitor launches this December for $770. It seems like a fantastic option for creatives or office workers that want a beautiful, color-accurate screen.
