Lenovo Yoga 900S review: Strike a pose

 

Lenovo has been pushing its flexible-hinge Yoga series for some time, refining design and capability with each iteration. At the tail-end of 2015 we were impressed by the original Yoga 900, which combined Intel Core i processor power in a slender build...

Slender and lightweight design looks great, quality finish and standout watchband hinge, decent trackpad and taut keyboard experience, good battery performance for its class

Large bottom bezel looks strange, small shift key can be annoying, more expensive than its more powerful Yoga 900 brother, screen a tad too reflective

At first glance we thought we would prefer the Yoga 900S over its slightly larger and more powerful Yoga 900 brother. On one hand, we do: that sub-1kg weight and 12.5-inch form factor is great. On the other hand, we don't: it's less powerful, yet costs...

Lenovo Yoga 900S review

 

An impressively light and long-lived hybrid laptop

Surprisingly long battery life ; Gorgeously refined design ; Spectacular screen

Shallow keyboard ; Small touchpad ; Worse performance on paper

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is just as stylish as its bigger brother, with a thinner and lighter design that still delivers reliable performance and amazing battery life.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen review

 

No stylus required for this Windows 8 tablet

Excellent build quality ; Lengthy battery life ; Fun AnyPen technology ; Ergonomics

Using 'any pen' is a liability ; No video output ; No USB port ; Limited storage

Scores in depth Capitalizing on the stylus craze to give tablet owners more precision input, Lenovo asks users of its $299 (£195, AU$385) Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows to not only touch and poke at the screen, but to key it, stab it, and slash it with...

Lenovo Yoga 900S review: Treading lightly

 

A featherweight hybrid that's weighed down by lacklustre performance and an underwhelming display

Still, even if Lenovo do patch this problem with a new driver, everything else about the 900S just feels like one big compromise. If you’re after an ultra light laptop, then the regular Yoga 900 or Dell XPS 13 remain our top laptops of choice. Still...

Lenovo Yoga 900S review

  (Rating Hidden)

The 'thinnest convertible laptop on Planet Earth'. This bold claim made by the Lenovo Yoga 900S will certainly make your ears prick up if you're after a cross between a laptop and a tablet. But it takes more than a slimline physique to make a truly...

Lenovo Yoga 900S

 

The Lenovo Yoga 900S is one of the thinnest and longest-lasting convertible-hybrid Windows laptops you can get. It's highly portable and has a full-size keyboard, but you will pay for these conveniences.

Innovative hinge allows for many usage modes. Extremely light and thin for a convertible. Long-lasting battery. Includes USB-C port. Supports optional Active Pen.

Pricey. 4GB of memory, 128GB SSD. Auxiliary keys are small.

With the Lenovo Yoga 900S, you certainly pay for portability. It's a good choice for the traveling writer or small businessperson, thanks to its light weight, flexible and easy-to-pack build, and long-lasting battery. But you will pay a premium for...

The Lenovo Yoga 900S changes colors again, but also gets easier to carry.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen With Windows (8-Inch)

 

The 8-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen is a well-designed Windows tablet that lets you use a plain old pen or pencil as a stylus.

Compact, comfortable-to-hold design. Built-in kickstand. Bright 1,920-by-1,200 In-Plane Switching (IPS) display. AnyPen technology offers stylus support for standard writing implements. Decent processor performance. Long battery life in our tests

8-inch display is small and difficult to read. Minimal port selection

We've seen plenty of 8- and 10-inch Windows tablets in recent months, but that doesn't mean they've all been good. Thankfully, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 AnyPen with Windows (8-inch) is one of the better ones. With a smart design, a colorful...

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen review: Stylus-friendly Windows tablet with a tiny screen

 

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen marries an impressive build and innovative tech with unremarkable performance and a tiny screen.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 features AnyPen technology that allows you to use any metal object as a stylus. Its rounded spine makes it easy to hold, and the kickstand is a welcome addition. Battery life is stellar.

The small screen isn't ideal for a desktop-like PC experience, and it lacks a keyboard accessory. There are miniscule port options.

If you can live with the fact that its screen is too small for the full Windows 8 experience, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2's comfy build and cutting-edge stylus technology are compelling enough reasons to own it.
