Lenovo Yoga 910 Review: Here's Why Everybody Loves The Upgraded Hybrid Laptop
If you are shopping around for a new gadget and you can't decide between a laptop and a tablet, why not spring for a hybrid laptop? This new breed of personal computing devices combines the easy touchscreen navigation of a tablet and the functionality of a laptop.
You can never go wrong with buying a Lenovo Yoga 910 because it is near perfection. This hybrid got plenty of upgrades and is definitely more powerful than its predecessor, the Yoga 900.
What The Yoga 910 Looks Like
At first glance, one can tell right away that the Lenovo Yoga 910 is an absolute stunner. The industrial metal design and the slight tapering on the edges feel very premium, and its weight of 3.09 pounds makes it a lightweight. But what makes it stand out from the bevy of laptop hybrids out there is its minimal, razor-thin bezel around the top and the sides of the screen. By shrinking the bezels, Lenovo managed to cram in a 13.9-inch screen instead of your typical 13-inch screen.
This device also features a 1920x1080 IPS touchscreen. If this does not meet your needs, you can spring for the more expensive version that has a 4K UHD panel.
The watchband-like hinge - a Lenovo trademark - is as impressive as ever, and makes the transition from being a large-screen tablet to a compact laptop easy and seamless in one fell swoop. This hinge is composed of four metal rails that sit elegantly between the screen and the keyboard.
Under The Chassis
Instead of using Intel's sixth-generation Skylake chips, the laptop hybrid sports the seventh-generation Kaby Lake processor. You can choose between an 8GB or 16GB of DDR4/2133 memory. And instead of a SATA drive, the Yoga 910 sports a PCIe NVMe drive. The battery has been improved, too. It has a 78WHr that allows local video playback of up to 9 hours.
One Major Flaw
However, by incorporating super-thin bezels and creating a nearly border-less screen, that means the built-in webcam will have to be placed elsewhere. Its current position below the screen can make for an awkward position when making video calls. You need to make sure you have the angle down pat, or else people will be seeing your chest instead of your face during video calls.
With a starting price of $1,199.99, the Lenovo Yoga 910 is a great mobile computing device to have if you can't decide between a laptop and a tablet. This device combines the best of both worlds.
