LAS VEGAS--Lenovo got a jump on the avalanche of CES news and made some product announcements in the days leading up to the giant Consumer Electronics Show.

The world's second-largest PC maker last week unveiled a new line of ThinkPad laptops that are slimmer and pack cutting-edge features such as Thunderbolt .

Today, Lenovo CEO Yang Yaunqing discussed the company's "four screen" strategy, involving PCs, tablets, smartphones, and smart TVs.

Among the products touted: the IdeaPad Yoga (a laptop with a hinge that lets it fold over in a "back bend" to become a tablet), and the IdeaCentre A720 (a 27-inch all-in-one that can also bend way back, so the touch-enabled screen can be used horizontally).
