It’s been a while since I’ve seen a Lenovo “Yoga” laptop that wasn’t a ThinkPad model. Lenovo’s regular Yoga line lacks the MIL-STD 810G testing and some of the other business features the ThinkPads have, but they are some of the best convertible laptops out there. Of course, that’s why they’re called “Yoga”, you can lay them flat, turn them into a tent, or even flip the screen all the way around and use the laptop as a tablet. This year Lenovo has a Yoga 9i, which is available in both 14- and 15-inch versions. We have the 14-inch with an Intel Core i7-1260P processor, 1920 x 1200 IPS display, 8 GB DDR5 memory and a very impressive sound system.
Special thanks to Lenovo for providing the Yoga 9i 14-inch laptop for review.
Whether you pick up the Yoga 9i from Best Buy or order it online, it comes in a large box, and inside that box you’ll find a yoga box, your power adapter, and a cover for it. Speaking of the power adapter, it’s a 65W Type-C adapter and it’s definitely the smallest power adapter I’ve seen for a Windows laptop.
If you open the yoga box inside, you’ll find the Yoga 9i (well protected with plastic wrap), a Lenovo Precision Pen 2, and a quick start guide.
For those wondering what the Precision Pen 2 is, it is rechargeable with a Type-C port under the cap. It has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, but for some reason it doesn’t attach magnetically or have a place on the Yoga 9i to store it. However, there is a place for it on the supplied cover.
