Energy Star accidentally leaked Lenovo’s new laptops

outright leaks are rarely what the
manufacturer wants.

You have to imagine then that there are a few red faces at Energy Star right now, as it managed to leak the existence of several upcoming Lenovo laptops, including the firm’s new Yoga 910 convertible.

Energy Star is a voluntary rating system that companies sign up for to be given the seal of approval that they are doing their best to reduce the carbon footprint of various electronics. However, this does mean that it has to know about products before they are released and in this case it appears to have slipped up and revealed much more than it should have.

Spotted by Twitter user Roland Quandt (via Liliputing), the laptops and convertible 2-in-1s on the site included the Lenovo IdeaPad 710S Plus, the Lenovo Yoga 910 and Yoga 5 Pro, as well as the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 4 11.

The first of those revealed notebooks, the 710s Plus, is said to weigh in at just 2.8 pounds and comes fitted with a 13-inch, 1080p display; an Intel Core-i5 CPU, paired with 4GB of memory; a Nvidia GTX 940MX graphics chip, and 256GB of solid state (SSD) storage.

The Yoga 910 is a convertible, so it can operate in laptop or tablet mode and has near 14-inch display. Although we don’t have the full details on this one, we’re told that the top of the line version will have a Core i7 Kaby Lake processor, teamed up with 16GB of RAM. One version will have a glass lid, too.

The last reveal, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 4 11, is — unsurprisingly — an 11.6-inch model that will fit right in with some of the other entry-level convertible notebooks that Lenovo has released in recent months. Unfortunately right now we don’t know any details about the internal hardware, but we’ll update this if they become available in the near future.
