Along with a new slate of business PCs, Lenovo hit Mobile World Congress 2019 today with a range of laptops for the consumer market from its IdeaPad line. At the head of the pack is new IdeaPad C340, along with supporting roles from the IdeaPad S540 and S340.

The Lenovo IdeaPad C340 is being billed as a convertible laptop for people on the move. The latest iteration of this model sports a selection of 8th Gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, along with a Pentium 5405U at the low end. Also on board are models with AMD's Ryzen 7 processors for those who prefer team red.

Other specs include up to NVIDIA GeForce Mx230 graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage. Lenovo claims that you'll be able to hit up to eight hours of battery life with the C340, but added support for quick charging means you'll be able to zip up to 80 percent in around an hour of charging.

The IdeaPad C340 is available in 14-inch and 15-inch varieties, with resolutions topping out at 1080p.

The IdeaPad S340 and S540 are much more pedestrian affairs but also come at an affordable price. Once again, these two laptops are available in either Intel or AMD flavors, with up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and AMD Ryzen 7 chips.

Each model can be equipped with up to 12GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, and graphics options include NVIDIA GeForce MX250 or integrated graphics. Along with 14-inch and 15-inch sizes available on each model, you'll also find resolutions of up to 1080p. Each also features Lenovo's Rapid Charge tech to boost up to 80 percent battery capacity in around an hour of charging.


Prices start at $370 for the IdeaPad S340, $730 for the S540, or $450 for the C340. Each is set to launch in April in the U.S. For EMEA territories, expect the variations of each laptop to arrive in March, with further options to launch in April.
