When Lenovo’s Yoga 3 Pro became a hit, Lenovo knew they have a wonderful laptop system on their hands. This year, Lenovo launches its Yoga 900, which is very much a worthy successor to Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. Taking action on some of the customers’ complaints about Yoga 3 Pro, Lenovo Yoga 900 features many welcomed additions and features to satisfy their Yoga laptop series customers.
Lenovo Yoga 900 Design
Lenovo Yoga 900 has an elegant and simple design that looks almost similar to a MacBook Pro. Weighing at a very light 2.84 pounds or 1.29 kilograms, and with a thickness of only 0.58 inches, the Yoga 900 can come in silver metal, platinum silver, champagne gold, and clementine orange. It has a metal plate at the bottom of the laptop and also has a watchband hinge on the rear like the Yoga 3 Pro.
Lenovo Yoga 900 Hinge
The watchband hinge on the rear of Yoga 900 is used to rotate the screen 360 degrees and for transforming the laptop into a form of tablet without being separated from its keyboard and trackpad. Although the Lenovo Yoga 900 can be used as a tablet, it does not detach with its keyboard and trackpad.
Instead, the keyboard and trackpad will be located at the back of the gadget when rotated and used in tablet form. One of its improvements from Yoga 3 Pro’s hinge is it allows hot air to move through the back instead of on your lap. This also prevents hot air blockage when the Yoga 900 is used as a tablet.
Lenovo Yoga 900 Processor
Yoga 900’s new processor is the Intel Skylake processor which is more powerful than Yoga 3 Pro’s processor. The Intel Skylake processor is much more efficient and cools more quickly than Yoga 3 Pro’s processor.
Lenovo Yoga 900 Screen Resolution
Lenovo Yoga 900 has 13.3 inch screen and a resolution fo 3,200 x 1,800, which is good enough for a clear and sharp display of images, videos, text, and color. Watching videos and movies on your Yoga 900 is ideal and has no problems at all.
Lenovo Yoga 900 Keyboard and Trackpad
Its backlit keyboard is unique because it has a texture similar to leather. It has a nice and smooth feel to it that helps your wrists relax better. The keys on the keyboard quickly respond to slight pressure and do not feel stiff at all. The trackpads on the keyboard are also very responsive but it might take some time to adjust to its texture.
Although the keyboard and the trackpad of Lenovo 900 are facing the back of the laptop when being used in tablet form, you will not be able to accidentally type or click when you press on the keypad keys and trackpad because both are disabled during tablet form use.
Lenovo Yoga 900 is the best of the Yoga laptop series yet. Lenovo made sure to give this laptop a faster and more efficient performance, an effective and useful design, as well as better battery life. If you liked Lenovo Yoga 3, you will definitely like Lenovo Yoga 900. And if you are new to Lenovo’s Yoga laptops, this will be a good introduction to Lenovo’s efficient and elegant laptop.
