New Lenovo YOGA Windows 10 PCs Primed for Portability

7 mins read

The FINANCIAL — Lenovo on October 19 announced the Lenovo YOGA 900 and the YOGA Home 900, two new Windows 10 PCs for mobile work and play. Four years ago, Lenovo started to change the way people could use a PC by blending innovative design and functionality to create the world’s first convertible laptop with the original YOGA.

Today, the new YOGA 900 is the world’s thinnest Intel Core i convertible laptop,1 balancing performance and mobility with the YOGA’s signature watchband hinge. The YOGA 900 convertible laptop is thin, light and more powerful than ever, while the YOGA Home 900 portable All-in-One desktop gets even more versatile with hundreds of new education, entertainment and productivity apps and an improved AURA 3.0 interface. With a 27-inch touchscreen, integrated battery and thin and light design, the YOGA Home 900 takes the performance and functionality of a desktop and reinvents it as a mobile device that can be shared and used throughout the home, according to Lenovo.

Lenovo YOGA 900 Convertible Laptop

As the world’s thinnest Intel Core i convertible laptop1 with up to Intel’s latest 6th gen Core i7 processor, the new Lenovo YOGA 900 is beautifully slim and feather light (14.9 mm and 1.29 kg), yet amazingly powerful. The YOGA 900 provides flexibility with four usage modes (laptop, stand, tent, tablet), letting users work, watch or play in a variety of scenarios. Lenovo crafted the laptop with its recognizably different watchband hinge made of more than 800 intricately woven, individual pieces. The improved watchband hinge provides a noticeably smoother rotation – allowing users to flip and fold their YOGA 900 easily into different modes. The convertible laptop also takes full use of Windows 10 Continuum, allowing users to seamlessly move between laptop and tablet modes on their YOGA 900. It has 50 percent greater battery density (compared to the previous generation), allowing it to achieve up to nine hours of local video playback. From working through a long-haul flight in laptop mode to enjoying a movie marathon in stand mode to reading while commuting in tablet mode, the super-light YOGA 900 can flex into nearly any position to fit into users’ lives.

 The 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200×1800) IPS Display has a wide viewing angle that takes full advantage of the new Windows 10 and brings digital content to life in vibrant colors. Entertainment experiences become more immersive with the device’s JBL stereo speakers and Dolby Audio Premium for powerful sound that’s crisp and clear. Users can escape into a home-theater quality experience virtually anywhere—with audio that dynamically adjusts to deliver a virtual surround sound experience over the YOGA 900’s speakers and through headphones. The new YOGA 900 is designed with a Samsung3 Solid State Drive and greater memory capacity (offering up to 16 GB) for higher reliability and a faster experience with minimal noise. Remarkably, even with its razor-thin design, Lenovo improved the cooling system by 30 percent. Thanks to its distinct thermal solution and uniquely designed vent structure, it not only cools better but also stays quieter and cleaner.

Lenovo YOGA Home 900 Portable All-in-One Desktop 

Providing the full desktop computing experience – and more – the new Lenovo YOGA Home 900 challenges the notion of a typical desktop PC. Designed for portability, it breaks away from the constraints of cords and desks, reaching nearly any corner of the home. With up to an Intel 5th Gen Core i7 processor, optional NVIDIA GeForce 940A graphics, Windows 10 and up to three hours4 of battery life, the YOGA Home 900 delivers desktop-level performance and productivity anywhere, while providing a new degree of immersive entertainment.

The improved AURA 3.0 interface comes with enhanced photo facial recognition and editing features. Users can lay the YOGA Home 900 flat and launch AURA 3.0 to easily access photos, videos and hundreds of new entertainment, productivity and education apps through the new AURA Store, now linked to the Windows Store. A curated set of apps from the Windows Store work best with the touch capabilities of the YOGA Home 900’s large 27-inch screen. The YOGA Home 900 explores new ways to bring modern families and friends closer together, from flipping through a digital photo album, getting artistic with creative painting and photo editing apps, hosting game night playing Air Hockey, to turning a video chat session into a family reunion.

We studied real user needs to make them as thin and light as possible for the portability that they need, while upping the PCs’ performance and refining the YOGA’s signature watchband hinge for an even smoother rotation to switch between modes.”

“Windows 10 was designed to help people do great things, and Lenovo’s new YOGA PCs were built to maximize the operating system’s incredible features, such as Cortana, a personal assistant that goes with you from device to device, and our fantastic new browser, Microsoft Edge,” said Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president, Operating Systems Group, Microsoft Corp. “We worked closely behind the scenes with Lenovo to ensure its new PCs really brought to life the best of Windows 10, and we’re excited to see customers’ reactions to their new YOGA 900 and YOGA Home 900.”
