"Over 80 per cent of our consumers were concerned about battery life. Other thing the customers were worried about is colours, so we are now offering a choice of silver colour this year", Dilip Bhatia, Vice President of Global Marketing, User and Customer Experience Lenovo PC and Smart Device Business Group, said.
Taking a note of increased cybercrime threats, the new device offers enhanced security features. It comes with a fingerprint sensor with a dedicated chip that handles biometric processing and helps secure and simplify the Windows Hello login experience with a new face recognition Infrared camera.

Also when a user folds the laptop after turning it off, it again pulls in the keys to keep the display free from any marks and scratches.
