Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Wants To Say Something, But…

Lenovo has since been one of the best players in the field of computing. This time they have figured out to jostle the durability and strength of a foldable screen while dulling the obvious – which is no other than the mechanical wear and tear of constant fold and close mechanism.

At first look, you will be very skeptical about the mechanism of Lenovo’s foldable laptop, but not just this particular laptop, but even some other laptops or any other gadgetry with foldable working parts. Obviously, the limitations come within it’s working junctions which in some instances never hold back to its promise of durability.

But Lenovo Yoga Book 9i has something to say. Lenovo might have done the necessary steps possible to engineer the posterity of the moving part. This dual-screen laptop has no palpable touchpad, which is critical for third-party users.

So basically, Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a two 13.3-inch, 16:10, 2.8K OLED screens heaped on top of each other. That hinge in the middle of those two screens is really the central concerns, besides that we need to test the durability and performance of the screen themselves. On the lower screen is a detachable keyboard, pretty much like the way we do it with Microsoft Surface Neo or Apple iPad Pro, maybe.

Now, Lenovo Yoga Book 9i offers even more on the input side of life. First off, you have the physical keyboard. Secondly, those screens are touchscreens actually. Third, you can deploy a virtual keyboard for your own consumption – tweak it, rotate it – the world is yours to take. And lastly, you have your stylus to pick and scribble on the screen.

What more can you ask for?

These screens however are not perpetual screens. Which means those two screen sections are not connected with one another, the way say, Motorola Razr Flip screen does. So, halving the screen to make the other as your working keyboard would make your screen real estate smaller. Though, you will first understand this at first glance.

 Folding the unit into two will immediately deploy the virtual keyboard. The keyboard is haptic that give you touch responsive feedback when you type on it. Otherwise, you can just place the keyboard on top, which fits in there snugly and use the remaining screen ratio as a touch pad. The on-screen touchpad functionality is much more respectable than those of Asus’ touchpad. Could be that Lenovo is learning or innovating ahead – whichever comes first!

It wasn’t so long when you seen in a sci-fi movie screens actors hold, flip and tossing contents from one screen to the other without much ado, Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is now handing it to you on s silver platter. Try it to believe. The unit also benefit from dual-screen, dual-function mode. Though, that enormous hinge allocation between two screens is the bummer as it diminishes a user sense of aesthetic goodwill. You can also use the laptop in rotational mode, which means you can use it horizontally or vertically, no difference – the contents will be at your beck and call. But just get used to it though, because it would look more like a bedtime storybook than a laptop screen.

As the laptop is thin so does the hinges that comes with it. So, does it wiggle wobble when you touch it, yes it does. The hinges are not specifically strong enough to absorb the finger picking on it. But most likely you won’t be touching it often as you have the slave screen at the bottom to serve as your navigator for the main screen. Maybe, not much of an issue as all typical laptop does wobble when you touch it.

And for the question about the ever-coveted performance? The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is jeweled with 13th-Gen Intel Core i7 U-series chip. Not bad at all. The chip is specifically designed for thin and lightweight devices. But of course, loose down your expectations as this is not design to edit die-hard cinematic videos. But it does to the trick for some frivolous tasks – word processing, TikTok, YouTube, Facebook videos on the fly.

It doe’s matter if this is one way Lenovo is trying to keep afloat amidst searing competition in the wild market or are they just trying to correct the mediocrity of the past offering, such as the ThinkPad X1 Fold which is not much glorifying to use because of its glitchy performance – we will know hoping Yoga Book will be the point of departure making a difference in the computing world.

Now, get ready to bleed out $2000 for the starting price of this piece. The key takeaway is that if perfectionism is not your thing and money is not your issue (which I highly doubt, because who doesn’t have money issue) then this one gives you a promise to be a good digital right-hand. Ok, aesthetically that hinge that is taking those screens apart is an evident let down for me or even for you. Secondly, the price is a bit of a bite to my purse as well as might to you.
