A couple of weeks ago, Lenovo rolled out the updated Yoga 6 and Yoga 7i laptops, and now it’s time for the top model’s Yoga 9i and Yoga Slim 9i.
The Yoga 9i replaces the Yoga C940. This is a laptop with a 360-degree swivel display, available in two sizes: 14 “and 15.6”. The Yoga Slim 9i is only available in 14 “and features a hinge design that cannot flip the screen lid 360 degrees. But Slim is one of the thinnest and lightest Lenovo notebooks: the thickness is only 13.7 mm, the weight is 1.26 kg. However, the usual Yoga is not much heavier – 1.37 kg (14 ″ modification). At the same time, the case of notebooks is made of aluminium, which has a positive effect on the durability of the devices.
The outside of the Slim 9i display lid is made of leather. This option is also available for the 14 ″ version of the Yoga 9i. On laptops with leather trim, the panel around the touchpad is completely glass. The touchpad itself has reverse feedback that mimics the sensation of pressing. The coating is resistant to fingerprints.
Intel’s new Tiger Lake family of processors are used as the hardware platform for laptops. Also, the devices are equipped with Thunderbolt 4 connectors. IPS-displays support DisplayHDR 400.
The 15 ″ Yoga 9i features 10th Gen Intel processors up to Core i9 HK, dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics.
Yoga 9i models are equipped with swivel speakers that are integrated into the display hinge. This ensures that the sound is always directed towards the user, no matter where the screen is. In addition, they are equipped with a stylus that hides in the laptop case.
