Lenovo Yoga 900S is a slimmed-down version of the already-slim Yoga 900 built to appeal to professionals and other users who love a chic machine that promises solid performance and pleasant multimedia experience. The ultra-thin convertible sports solid construction as well as a stunning QHD display and latest Intel Core processor.
Design and Display
This hybrid sports a chassis made of carbon, which helps to ensure both durability and lightness. The design is balanced and the black-gold colour scheme makes the Lenovo Yoga 900S look quite attractive.
It features its maker’s signature watchband hinge that allows users to flip the display a full 360 degrees and move from laptop to tablet.
Lenovo describes it as the thinnest convertible at a thickness of just half an inch, but that is not to say it is the slimmest 2-in-1 (including detachable devices) on the market.
Compared to its predecessor, the Yoga 900S features a smaller 12.5-inch touch display with optional Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) resolution for breathtaking colours and sharpness. The screen supports the use of Active Pen for note-taking and drawing.
In terms of performance, concession has been made with the Lenovo Yoga 900S. Buyers get Intel Core M processors, as against the Core i units that were used for the Yoga 900.
But while it is true you may not expect the best of performance, it does not necessarily mean the CPU provided is a total disappointment.
You should look forward to smooth multitasking without hanging issues; the machine may only struggle a bit with highly-demanding tasks such as 4K video encoding. The processors are given a shot in the arm by up to 8 GB of RAM for awesome responsiveness.
Lenovo Yoga 900S is equipped with a solid-state drive (up to 512GB capacity) which ensures very fast boot time and app launching speeds. Its maker promises about 10 and half hours battery life on a charge, thanks to its power-efficient CPU.
The convertible features three USB ports, one of which is latest reversible USB Type-C port, but the SD card slot has been lost to slimness.
