lenovo yoga 900I met the funky-hinged Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro laptop at this years IFA and now the company have officially announced their 900 range in the form of the Lenovo Yoga 900 premium hybrid laptop tablet that is equipped with a 360 degree hinge and the desktop-loving Home 900.

Lenovo Yoga 900

As the world’s thinnest Intel Core i convertible laptop the new Lenovo Yoga 900 is beautifully slim and feather light (14.9 mm and 1.29 kg), and yet has more than enough power under the hood.

The Yoga 900 provides flexibility with four usage modes, as is the way with Lenovo’s Yoga series (laptop, stand, tent, tablet), which allows users to work, watch or play in a variety of scenarios.

As well as the spec sheet there’s that watchband-like hinge made of more than 800 intricately woven, individual pieces.

The new-and-improved watchband hinge provides a noticeably smoother rotation – allowing users to flip and fold their Yoga 900 easily into different modes.

The convertible laptop also takes full use of Windows 10 Continuum, which enables users to seamlessly move between laptop and tablet modes on their Yoga 900. It has 50% greater battery density (compared to the previous generation), allowing it to achieve up to nine hours of local video playback.

From working through a long-haul flight in laptop mode to enjoying a movie marathon in stand mode to reading while commuting in tablet mode, the super-light Yoga 900 can flex into nearly any position to fit into users’ lives.
