Flip Out

The Lenovo Yoga 920 convertible tablet/laptop contains up to an 8th-Generation Intel Core i7 processor, Windows 10 OS and an almost-bezel-less 4K IPS touchscreen in a 13.9-inch frame. Weighing 3.02 pounds, the four-mode convertible flexes 360 degrees from a laptop into a tablet. The computer offers an optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 for Windows Ink that has 4,096 levels of pen sensitivity for drawing and making notes with no discernible lag. Using Cortana, the tablet recognizes voice commands in standby mode and from up to four meters away so users can add items to a list, check traffic, send short emails, track packages and more. Cortana even uses artificial intelligence to learn from its owners, so the Yoga 920 grows smarter over time. www.lenovo.com

Carry On

The Samsonite Xenon 3.0 15-inch laptop shuttle bag features padded vinyl-wrap textured handles and a padded drop-in single-zip laptop compartment that will fit up to a 15.6-inch notebook. The front pocket features organizers and a tricot-lined tablet pocket. The Xenon weighs 1.5 pounds, and has micro-forged matte gunmetal logo and zipper pulls. The bag consists of 1680 Denier ballistic poly construction, a durable nylon material originally specified by the federal government for military use. www.samsonite.com
