Thin is in. At least Lenovo hopes you see it that way, too.

During its Lenovo Launch livestream event Monday, the computer manufacturing company unveiled its Yoga 900 convertible laptop at a stunning razor-thin 14.9 millimeters and weighing 2.8 pounds. Lenovo claims the 13.3-inch laptop is the thinnest convertible Intel Core "i" laptop ever.

Unique to the machine is its watchband hinge, consisting of 800 individually-woven pieces, helping the Yoga 900 achieve easier rotation and overall flexibility. Using Windows 10 Continuum with a powerful sixth-generation Intel Core i7 Skylake processor, the Yoga 900 gives users up to nine hours of local video playback. That battery life is 50 percent greater than the last model in Lenovo's Yoga series.

As distinct as the Yoga 900's look is, its flexibility and functionality can't be denied. The Yoga 900 can be set in four different modes — laptop, stand, tent and tablet — allowing it to adjust to whatever the user's needs are, whether completing office work, gaming or watching a movie.

As Dilip Bhatia, Lenovo's VP and GM of its desktop unit, demonstrated, the convertible laptop can be flipped open and used comfortably even in cramped quarters like an airplane seat.

What aids the convertible laptop's functionality is a distinct cooling vent structure that was designed as part of the hinges, allowing the machine to run cleaner and quieter than any of the company's previous models.

The Lenovo Yoga 900 is slated to hit stores Monday, Oct. 19 starting at $1,199.99. The top-of-the-line Lenovo laptop is also available in three flashy colors — silver, orange and gold.
