Why the Lenovo Yoga 5G is great news for streamers

Take a look at the world’s first laptop with 5G connectivity – a flexible, lightweight device that offers high-speed, uninterrupted HD streaming to rival wi-fi, whether you’re at home or on the move

Wednesday 06 January 2021 16:39

You’re sat at your laptop, streaming that crucial sporting fixture and you see that unwelcome onscreen icon: the buffering loop. Commonplace even on decent wi-fi networks, it’s almost inevitable if you’re relying on a regular mobile connection.

So, imagine a device that means watching the match, playing a game or downloading a movie is possible on a brilliant screen without buffering, whether you’re at home, on your commute or outdoors.

If you haven’t heard of a laptop with 5G, that’s not surprising – this is the world’s first.  

Imagine no longer. The Lenovo Yoga 5G is a lightweight laptop with an attractive design and immaculate connectivity. As you may deduce from the name, it has a 5G connection built in which is 70% faster than 4G and 2,400x faster than public wi-fi, for a much smoother streaming experience.  

If you haven’t heard of a laptop with 5G, that’s not surprising – this is the world’s first.  

A 5G connection is fast. In fact, it’s often much faster than many home wi-fi networks, so buffer-free streaming is a reality.  

And it works wherever there’s a signal, so you could start watching in the living room and finish in the park, for instance, staying connected all the time.

5G is more secure than public wi-fi

Using 5G not only saves you from the uncertainty of the signal that wi-fi, especially public wi-fi hotspots, offer: because public wi-fi isn’t just unreliable, it’s insecure, too.

Of course, if you’ve downloaded the latest box set (which will take much less time over 5G than 4G would require), then the high-resolution 14-inch widescreen display will more than do it justice, too.  It’ll also sound as great as it looks, thanks to the Yoga 5G’s high-quality speakers, which are optimised with Dolby Atmos for immersive audio.

Fold the Yoga 5G for hands-free viewing

The Lenovo Yoga 5G is not just a stylish and well-built laptop, although it’s both those things. It’s also extremely lightweight, so you can take it wherever you go.  

You can have complete peace of mind that it’s not going to run out of juice just when you need it, thanks to the 24-hour battery life of the laptop.

The Lenovo Yoga 5G is the ideal way to stream, watch and game

It’s also very versatile. You can use it like a conventional laptop, fold the keyboard back on itself, tablet fashion, or stand it up like a tent for hands-free viewing.

Oh, and the Yoga 5G is so advanced it doesn’t have a fan – so your enjoyment won’t be interrupted by any whirring noises.

Add in the fast Qualcomm processor that ensures everything runs smoothly and the Lenovo Yoga 5G is the ideal way to stream, watch and game, whether you’re at home or on the move.
