The Lenovo Yoga 900 has been ruling the 2-in-1 laptop segment for almost a year now, because of its attractive design, light chassis, and bright display. Its successor, the next-generation Lenovo Yoga 910, is all set to be released in October 2016. This convertible sports a bezel-free design and fits a 13.9-inch display into an unbelievably slim chassis. With a 7th-gen Intel Core Series CPU, a fingerprint reader and an optional 4K display, the 910 is sure to set new benchmarks for 14-inch convertibles.
Lenovo Yoga 910 – Display and Design:
The 13.3-inch IPS screen comes in either 1920 x 1080 (full-HD) or 3840 x 2160 (4K) resolution. The full-HD display outpaces every other 1080p laptop when it comes to producing crisp visuals with extra sharpness and detail while the 4K variant lets you watch UHD (Ultra-HD) videos with full sharpness and detail. The colors on both screens look vibrant with zero saturation whatsoever. The unreflective, wide-angle screen has excellent viewing angles so that you may watch your favorite videos from sideways with full clarity. From movies and games to photos, the Yoga 910’s 4K display shows you everything in breathtaking clarity. Also, the touchscreen is highly responsive.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 retains the same look and feel of its predecessor. At 3.04 pounds, it’s a tad heavier than Yoga 900 (2.8 pounds), but the dimensions of both the machines are same (12.75 x 8.86 x 0.59 inches). The Lenovo Yoga 910 will be available in champagne gold, platinum and silver colors. Sadly, like the Yoga 900, it is not available in clementine orange which looked pretty good to us. The well-crafted watchband hinge allows you to smoothly open and close the lid. It lets the display swivel 360 degrees so that you may use the convertible in tablet mode.
The JBL stereo speakers, along with the Dolby® Audio Premium™ system, produce remarkably clear audio at all volumes. The dual-array mics have a noise canceling technology to suppress the background noise while you chat with friends.
Lenovo Yoga 910 – Performance, Keyboard, and Touchpad:
The top-end variant of the Lenovo Yoga 910 will be equipped with a 7th-generation Intel Core-i7 processor and a 16GB RAM. The 910 doesn’t have a discrete graphics card, and all you get is in-built Intel HD graphics. But, this shouldn’t be a problem as this is no gaming laptop and adding a GPU would have increased the dimensions and caused heat problems. As of storage, you’ll have multiple choices all the way up to 1 TB PCIe SSD. This laptop ships in with a clean install of Windows 10 Ultimate Pro that is touch-friendly and feels snappy. The perfectly aligned keys on the backlit keyboard allow you to reach a typing speed of 100 wpm with little or no errors. The trackpad is sensitive enough to recognize all the gestures of Windows 10.
Lenovo Yoga 910 – Connectivity, Battery Life, and Price:
The 2-in-1 convertible has a USB 3.0 type-C with video-out and a USB 2.0 type-C with charging. There is another USB 3.0 port with an always-on charging feature and a 3.5 mm audio jack for placing headphones. The single-touch fingerprint reader lets you log into Windows 10 using its hello feature.
According to Lenovo, the Yoga 910 with a 1080p screen lasts for about 15 hours and 30 minutes, when used continuously. Bottom Line: Overall, if you’re looking for a 13-inch 2-in-1, the Lenovo Yoga 910 should be your ultimate choice. The starting price of the Yoga 910 will be a $1,299.
