Working from home – and learning from home – with Lenovo
Lenovo has the technology you need to work productively at home, whether it’s for your job or to keep up with
your studies. We’ve collected it all here on this page—from laptops and desktop PCs to the little
accessories and upgrades that can make such a difference. If you’re working from home or taking classes
online, Lenovo can help.
Of course, it takes more than great technology to keep up with your tasks. You need the right habits and
mental approach, too. Keep reading for some tips to get the most from at-home study and work time.
Whether your home office is where you go to work or learn, your success depends in large part on the tools
you use. Maybe a new laptop or
desktop PC to
run more apps at once, or extra storage or memory to
enhance what you're using now. Or maybe a tablet to jot down notes during team
meetings or to check in to classes while you’re on-the-go.
And what about the operating system driving those devices? The top choice of both remote workers and distance
learners is Windows 10.
Windows 10 offers a variety of powerful tools to help you be more productive, whether you take care of
business on a desktop PC, a laptop or a tablet. Features of Windows 10
include improved multitasking, lighting fast speed and advanced security. The Windows Store boasts thousands
of apps to help you improve efficiency, and when you need a break, Windows 10 includes a host of features to
enhance gaming. In addition, Windows 10 offers you the choice of when and how to get the latest updates to
keep your device running smoothly and securely, and the latest version of the Edge browser includes a host
of productivity features, including enhancements to its handling of multiple profiles to help keep your
work, home and school lives separate.
There’s no doubt about it: Windows 10 pushes the envelope of what’s possible with your home office.
Tips for working from home
What do you need to make your home office more productive? How about a mic-enabled headset to replace your
worn earbuds? Or a high-resolution monitor
to put your work in sharper focus? A bigger desk? A better chair? Lenovo has it all.
It's not just equipment. Successful work-from-homers have lots of tips for getting more from your day:
- Hold regular team meetings (same time each day) to ensure everyone's on the same page.
- Keep a team-wide chat room open – it’s a great place for quick questions and answers.
- Encourage video conferencing, not just audio-only. Facial expressions mean a lot.
- Adopt flexible work schedules to accommodate the varied needs of each remote worker.
- Use informal team chats or meetings to replace "water cooler" conversations for brainstorming.
With the right approach—and the right tools—working from home can be as productive as working at the office.

Tips for learning at home
Lectures. Research. Writing. Exams. There's a lot to being a student today, both college and high school. Now
there's a new layer: Doing it all from your home or apartment. Fortunately, Lenovo has tools to help, from
and printers to work desks and chairs. Not to mention the latest laptops and desktop PCs – or upgrades to
storage, memory, etc.
Beyond the technology, however, there are a number of ways to make at-home studies more effective:
- Set a schedule to avoid distractions. Commit specific times of your day to studying.
- Establish a regular study area (kitchen, bedroom, whatever). It will help you focus.
- Maintain your normal learning habits, such as taking class notes, asking questions, etc.
- Stay loose... but not too loose. Pajamas are comfy, but may not put you in a mood for learning.
- If you multitask, limit it to study-related topics, not paying your bills or doing laundry.
You see? With the proper tools and the right techniques, classroom study and home-based learning can produce
equally good results.
