CES 2020 | Lenovo zooms into CES with Ducati 5 notebook
Motorbike fans may want to race over to the Lenovo booth at CES 2020 to check out the new Lenovo Ducati 5, a mid-range laptop that sports Ducati branding and a smart racing stripe along the back of the lid.
Apart from the Ducati branding, the Ducati 5 is a standard mid-range laptop. It comes equipped with a 10th gen Intel Ice Lake Core i5-1035G1, Intel integrated graphics, 8 GB of RAM, and up to a 1 TB PCIe SSD. The 14-inch FHD (1920x1080) display is rated at 300 nits. Dual 2-Watt speakers are “user-facing.” The Ducati 5 is compatible with 802.11ax WiFi networks and Bluetooth 5.1. The whole package is relatively thin and light; the machine measures 321.7 x 211.8 x 19.1 mm (12.6 x 8.3 x 0.75 in) and weighs 1.58 kg (3.48 lbs).
Port selection is fairly good, offering users two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, one USB Type-C port (with support for power delivery and DisplayPort 1.2), HDMI 1.4b, an SD card reader, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Ducati fans will appreciate the details included to mimic the famed racing bikes. Aside from the racing stripe along the back panel, the rear exhausts match the honeycomb pattern of the Ducati Monster frames. Even the BIOS startup chime has been altered to the familiar buzz of the MotoGP bikes.
The Lenovo Ducati 5 will only be available in Europe when it launches this April. Prices start at €899.99.
