If you’re on the hunt for a drop-dead gorgeous display, the Lenovo Yoga 9i is worth considering. The 14-inch screen has a resolution of 3840×2160 (!!!) and HDR support. That means you can expect a sharp, vibrant picture. It’s also a 2-in-1, which means you can prop it up like a tent for tabletop sharing, or you can fold the screen all the way back and use the device like a tablet. The all-metal chassis is chic and durable, too.
The Yoga 9i features an Intel Core i7-1260P CPU, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage. That’s enough oomph for productivity work as well as day-to-day tasks like checking e-mail and posting on social media. The 74 watt-hour battery is also quite large for such a relatively slim 2-in-1. When we put the machine through our intensive battery test, it lasted about 12 hours on a single charge.
Yes, the 16:9 aspect ratio makes the screen feel cramped and the touchpad is tinier than we like. Nevertheless, the Yoga 9i is a good buy.
