Lenovo took the opportunity and exposure offered it at the recently concluded IFA 2016 event in Berlin to add a new device to its Lenovo Yoga series of convertible laptops. The new device is called the Lenovo Yoga 910, and it was announced alongside the Lenovo Yoga Book, a 2-in-1 tablet.
Lenovo Yoga 910 Specifications
Display & Design
The Lenovo Yoga 910 sports a 13.9-inch display with either a 4K (3840 *2160) or Full HD (1920 * 1080) pixel resolution. The display uses the IPS display technology which offers you good display quality at wide viewing angles.
Talking about viewing angles, the Lenovo Yoga 910 uses a watchband hinge design which allows it to be turned a full 360 degrees without any damage. This gives you the revolution experience that comes with laptops in the Lenovo Yoga series, and allows you to use the laptop in different modes like tent, tablet, stand and laptop; the choice is yours.
The laptop is very thin at just 14.3mm and is comfortable to carry around in a backpack since it's weighing 1.3 kilogrammes.
Memory & Performance
The Lenovo Yoga 910 comes in different memory and processor configurations, it is powered by up to a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, the successor of the Intel Core i5 processors currently in use. The highest model of the laptop packs a RAM capacity of 16GB which affords the processor enough space to work efficiently. Other RAM models are 4GB and 8GB.
File collectors would be very pleased with the Lenovo Yoga 910 because it comes with 1TB of SSD storage. Apart from the ability to store large files and documents, the 1TB SSD also contributes to the smooth and seamless running of the laptop. Graphics operations on the Lenovo Yoga 910 are handled by an Intel HD Graphics card.
The exact capacity of the battery on which the Lenovo Yoga 910 runs is not known, but Lenovo promises you up to 10 hours and 30 minutes of battery life on the latest Yoga laptop.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 allows you to connect to the internet over a wireless connection via its Wi-Fi 802.11ac bands. Device-to-device transfers are also made possible with Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy. You can share your internet connection or transfer files via Wifi on the laptop because it supports WLAN.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 imbibes two USB Type-C ports which allow you to transfer files at the speed of light (hey, I'm exaggerating a bit) and share the battery juice of the laptop with other devices.
When you talk about cameras on laptops, you should not be expecting high-resolution photography units; no, just something to take pictures of yourself and record videos for web seminars and video chats. The Lenovo Yoga 910 comes with a 720-pixel web camera at the front for such purposes.
Software and Hardware
The keyboard on the Lenovo Yoga 910 is a big improvement from that on the Lenovo Yoga 900, the next member of the series. The keyboard has been redesigned and now features a larger trackpad which gives your hand enough room to control the mouse and helps gamers to be more efficient at games that involve the use of the trackpad. The keyboard also features a fingerprint scanner for securely locking and unlocking the device.
The speakers in the Lenovo Yoga 910 are made by JBL and uses the Dolby Audio Premium sound technology to deliver a quality audio experience to its users.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 convertible laptop comes in two software iterations, the first running Window 10 and the second running Windows 10 Pro. It has Windows Hello support, which allows you to lock and unlock the laptop using face recognition or biometrics, thus ensuring maximum security over the laptop.
