Lenovo Yoga 900S 12ISK Convertible Review

 

Silent convertible. The 12.5-inch Yoga 900S is one of the most comfortable Yoga convertibles we've used. There are, however, a couple of key drawbacks to keep in mind.

high quality glossy touchscreen; 1080p and 1440p options, very long battery life; high capacity battery, small and portable; only 1 kg in weight, accessible internals; upgradeable SSD, good build quality, completely silent, USB Type-C port

average NVMe SSD performance, no SD reader or WWAN options, unimpressive stereo speakers, CPU and GPU throttling, very shallow key travel, pricey

It's hard to not like the Yoga 900S at first glance. It's attractive, silent, long-lasting, and incredibly easy to pick up and play when indoors or on-the-go. Workmanship and quality are solid and worthy of the flagship Yoga 900 name. In this sense,...

Lenovo Yoga 900S Review: A 2-in-1 With Lightweight Performance

 

The latest Lenovo Yoga 2-in-1 is a beautiful PC with plenty of battery life and enough performance to rival the MacBook. Read this Lenovo Yoga 900S review.

Impressive battery life ; Beautiful lightweight design ; Nice FHD display ; Good keyboard

Weak Core m5 performance ; Unimpressive touchpad ; No Pen included

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is a beautiful 2-in-1 lightweight PC with plenty of battery life and enough performance for general web browsing and casual video streaming. Unfortunately, this notebook lacks enough muscle to handle just about anything else.

Lenovo Yoga 900S

 

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is one of the thinnest and longest-lasting convertible-hybrid Windows laptops you can get. It's highly portable and has a full-size keyboard, but you will pay for these conveniences.

Innovative hinge allows for many usage modes. Extremely light and thin for a convertible. Long-lasting battery. Includes USB-C port. Supports optional Active Pen.

Pricey. 4GB of memory, 128GB SSD. Auxiliary keys are small.

Lenovo YOGA 900S Review — redefining what ‘luxury laptop’ means

 

Lenovo 's YOGA products come in a variety of flavors, and few are as complex and appreciable as the YOGA 900S. This convertible system features Lenovo's beautiful watchband hinge coupled with an especially thin body and more than 10 hours of battery...

Lenovo has a lot of bland laptops (and many stylish ones, too), but that’s not because it isn’t capable of more. If you need a no-frills all-black design, they have you covered. If that’s not your thing, though, if you want a laptop that stands out...

Lenovo Yoga 900s video review: Ultra portable yet powerful

 

The 900s is made of a carbon fiber WebCore top, magnesium bottom and high quality plastics on the interior.

Super slim, lightweight, portable, crispy display, versatility

The Intel core m3-m7's processors are good but would have been nice to see Intel i3-i7's

Starting at $899 the Lenovo Yoga 900s can be configured a plethora of ways and it's lightweight versatility makes it a joy to use.

Lenovo Yoga 900S Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo trims the heavenly-hinged Yoga 900 to 2.2 pounds, creating a convertible that'll tempt ultrabook shoppers. We suggest you get the Core m7 model in Champagne Gold.

Ravishing thin and light design ; Long battery life ; Four-mode flexibility ; Pleasing screen and keyboard

Tepid Core m5 performance ; Only 4GB RAM and 128GB storage ; No memory card slot

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Lenovo Yoga 900S Review

 

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is a terrific alternative to Windows 2-in-1s with detachable displays and PC internals.

Light Frame ; Thin Profile & Good Looks ; Watchband hinge ; USB Type-C & USB Ports ; USB as Power Port ; Decent Battery life

Keyboard lacks enough travel ; Bezels too big around screen ; Physical Start button is unnecessary and adds to the bezel

The biggest worry anyone should have when purchasing the Yoga 900S is its processor. Compared to an Intel Core I processor, the Core M series is sluggish. I knew what to expect because my personal computer is a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 Core M3 processor...

Lenovo Yoga 900S

 

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is the smaller and lighter counterpart to the already svelte Yoga 900. This is a 12.5" Windows 10 convertible with Lenovo's signature watchband 360 degree hinge and Intel 6th generation Core M CPUs inside. It supports both pen and...

Very light and slim convertible. Works with Wacom AES digital pen (not included though). Quiet fanless operation

Keyboard has extremely short travel and isn't very tactile. Color gamut on the 1080p model is below average for price range

If you want a very thin and light convertible that's actually comfortable for note taking and drawing, the Lenovo Yoga 900S has strong appeal. It's not as heavy or bulky as 13" convertibles and the fanless design and cool operation mean it's comfy and...

Hands-on with the ultra-thin Lenovo Yoga 900S

 

The new Yoga 900S from Lenovo is the company's thinnest and lightest convertible notebook ever. We check it out at CES 2016 to find out what's new and great about this ultra-thin device.

Lenovo Yoga 900S review: Strike a pose

 

Lenovo has been pushing its flexible-hinge Yoga series for some time, refining design and capability with each iteration. At the tail-end of 2015 we were impressed by the original Yoga 900, which combined Intel Core i processor power in a slender build...

Slender and lightweight design looks great, quality finish and standout watchband hinge, decent trackpad and taut keyboard experience, good battery performance for its class

Large bottom bezel looks strange, small shift key can be annoying, more expensive than its more powerful Yoga 900 brother, screen a tad too reflective

At first glance we thought we would prefer the Yoga 900S over its slightly larger and more powerful Yoga 900 brother. On one hand, we do: that sub-1kg weight and 12.5-inch form factor is great. On the other hand, we don't: it's less powerful, yet costs...
