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

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.

With the Lenovo Yoga 900S, you certainly pay for portability. It's a good choice for the traveling writer or small businessperson, thanks to its light weight, flexible and easy-to-pack build, and long-lasting battery. But you will pay a premium for...

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 Tablet 2 AnyPen With Windows (8-Inch)

 

The 8-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen is a well-designed Windows tablet that lets you use a plain old pen or pencil as a stylus.

Compact, comfortable-to-hold design. Built-in kickstand. Bright 1,920-by-1,200 In-Plane Switching (IPS) display. AnyPen technology offers stylus support for standard writing implements. Decent processor performance. Long battery life in our tests

8-inch display is small and difficult to read. Minimal port selection

We've seen plenty of 8- and 10-inch Windows tablets in recent months, but that doesn't mean they've all been good. Thankfully, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen with Windows (8-inch) is one of the better ones. With a smart design, a colorful...

Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 with AnyPen

 

Starting at $299 (£195 and AU$370, converted) the Yoga Tablet 2 features an ergonomic and useful design that's conveniently compact. Like other Lenovo Yoga tablets, the 8-inch Windows model houses a built-in kickstand for propping it up vertically or...

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 features AnyPen technology that allows you to use any metal object as a stylus. Its rounded spine makes it easy to hold, and the kickstand is a welcome addition. Battery life is stellar.

The small screen isn't ideal for a desktop-like PC experience, and it lacks a keyboard accessory. There are miniscule port options.

If you can live with the fact that its screen is too small for the full Windows 8 experience, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2's comfy build and cutting-edge stylus technology are compelling enough reasons to own it.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen review

 

Say goodbye to the anxiety of losing your stylus. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 features AnyPen technology, which allows any metal object to be used as a stylus. Eight-inch Windows tablets that pack the perk of a stylus are few and far between. Lenovo's...

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (Windows, 10-inch) review

 

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows is a $369.99, AU$499 device with a built-in kickstand and a high-resolution 10-inch display. And it runs Windows 8.1, so you can bring all of your favorite apps along for the ride. (While the tablet will be...

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 bundles a useful kickstand, an attractive high-resolution display, long battery life and a great keyboard into a package that's light and inexpensive.

Weak magnets make the connection between tablet and keyboard dock a tenuous one.

If you're willing to overlook the flawed keyboard dock, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows offers the full Windows 8 experience in an inexpensive package.

Lenovo Yoga 900s video review: Ultra portable yet powerful

 

The Lenovo Yoga 900s is a big improvement over last years Yoga 900 and it could be the perfect ultra portable for those of you on the go.

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

This machine could be worth the price to some, especially those looking for something lightweight and portable. If you’re on the hunt for a desktop replacement or have the need for processing and RAM power then you should probably look elsewhere. The...

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...
