The device comes with LTE connectivity and according to the claims, the device provides up to 25 hours of battery backup.

Lenovo also announced a new type of device, the Yoga Book C930. The difference between this new notebook and the usual notebooks is that this does not come with a keyboard. Instead, Lenovo has added an E Ink display in place of the keyboard so that it can function as a keyboard, notepad, and an eReader. The Windows 10-powered device comes with Cortana, Windows Ink, and Windows Hello along with optional 4G connectivity.

Last but not the least, Acer announced a slick looking laptop from its Predator lineup, the Acer Predator Triton 900. This gaming laptop comes with the usual Intel 8th generation Core i7 processors, support for Xbox controller dongle, dual-fans to keep the laptop cool during extended gaming sessions, and an RGB back-lit keyboard along with overclocking capabilities.

However, the most interesting thing about this laptop was the fact that it comes with a rotating screen with the help of a hinge to transform it into a tablet whit the screen facing outward, or a usual laptop with the screen facing inside, towards the keyboard.
