Lenovo is a well-known brand in the laptop market. Recently they have launched their latest laptop Lenovo Yoga 9i. The Lenovo Yoga 9i is the latest 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The device is packed with tons of features and aesthetic looks. Yes, we can say that it comes with a higher price range along with high-end hardware such as intel’s core-i7 1280 CPU with 14 cores and 20 threads. In this article, we have reviewed this laptop which will help you to decide whether it is worth it or not.
You can fold the laptop to a great extent and the display offer a resolution of up to 2880 x 1800 pixels. OLED laptops are best in terms of productivity and content consumption. The display is slightly glossy, so you might get some reflection on the screen.
It is powered by a 12th Gen Intel i7 1280P processor with integrated graphics. If you are purchasing this device as a gaming laptop then its Graphics might disappoint you. Apart from the gaming point, you won’t find any problems.
You can open multiple tabs and apps simultaneously; this device will manage all these flawlessly. You can expect a battery backup of eight hours with minimal usage.
Apart from all these, you get two thunderbolt ports, one USB-C, one USB-A, a headphone jack, and much more.
This device could be a great device if you are switching from an older model. The 16:10 aspect ratio and 1080p webcam could be a great deal for you.
Lenovo has made this laptop much more futuristic than its predecessors. Although it has a 14-inch display its display has gone from 16:9 to 16:10, so you will be getting some extra space which will help you to increase your productivity. Earlier also yoga books had a very good design but some of them haven’t been comfortable enough to hold.
The old yoga book looks like a traditional ultra-book but the edges of the device were a little bit sharp. The latest version is much better in terms of round edges, it feels so smooth. Moreover, it has a nice polish which gives a touch of luxury to this device.
Another big improvement we noticed is the touchpad. The latest version has the much bigger one that offers more space to move your fingers around. The keyboards are almost identical to the previous ones, however, they have changed the buttons. They have added a special button for switching between on the right side. You can avoid the fingerprint lock just because of the 1080p webcam which supports Windows Hello Facial recognition.
Good audio and oddly chosen keys
The Lenovo Yoga 9i has a Wilkins speaker system that has two subwoofers on the side and two speakers attached at the hinge. The sound quality offered by this laptop is superb, full volume is so loud that the sound starts to harsh and boom beyond that point. Dolby Atmos software offers dynamic, movie, voice pre-sets, etc.
The webcam comes with 1080p camera quality instead of 720 resolution. The webcam captures colorful images with no noise or static. It has some the premium features like smart appearance utility, applying filters, and enhancing your eye contact by making it appear you are looking at the camera instead of the screen. The Yoga 9i’s backlit keyboard is responsive but has a soft shallow typing feeling. It offers a large and silky-smooth pad that has a very silent and comfortable silent click.
Display and battery test
We have tested the battery life of the laptop by playing a 720p video at 50% and 100% audio volume. We have also made sure that the battery was fully charged before the test with wifi and backlighting turned off.
