Lenovo Yoga A940 adds novelty to its Surface Studio-like design

It's got the drafting-table-angle hinged display and it's own take on secondary-hand input, but adds some nice touches of its own.

Underscreen lighting

One of the nice touches is a strip of lights under the display so you can find objects on your desk when you're working in the dark. There's also a pair of speakers here so the sound comes at you when the display is tilted.

Precision Dial

Lenovo's take on the a secondary input device like the Microsoft Dial is a USB device that can plug into the USB ports on either side of the display. The color of the light changes depending upon what application you're in. It maps to keystroke commands in the software, and comes ready for some Adobe Creative Cloud applications.

Hinged display

It pulls down and out like the Studio, tilting to a 25-degree angle for drawing.

Peripheral dock

Another nice touch is the ability to stow the keyboard, mouse and Active Pen beneath the display when it's not in use or when you're, say, playing games with a controller.
