Lenovo Yoga 910 hands-on review: The new king of Yogas

Lenovo Yoga 910 hands-on review: Lenovo’s new star two-in-one has to be the Yoga 910, which the company revealed at IFA in Berlin last week.

The new convertible takes on the title of the most powerful consumer Yoga product in the family, packing a refined take on its predecessor’s iconic design and boasting some of the latest hardware on the market.

The dimensions of the 910 are dictated by its sizeable 13.9-inch IPS LCD touchscreen, which boasts brilliant colour reproduction and can be had as either a Full HD or 4K panel. The Full HD model boasts up to 15.5 hours of use on a single charge, whilst the 4K model tops out at 10.5 hours according to Lenovo. To help it stand out even more, the company has pushed the frame to the limits, giving the 910 an almost bezel-free design and naturally, like the 900 it also integrates that signature watchband hinge, allowing for almost 360 degrees of motion.

The aluminium unibody design is impressively thin at 14.3mm (when closed) and features two Type-C USB ports (one for charging and one for video out), whilst a full-sized always-on USB 3.0 port offers charging of external devices, even when the 910 is closed.

On the multimedia front, you’ll find dual JBL speakers on its underside, bolstered by Dolby Audio Premium support. There’s also a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, dual microphones, 720p HD webcam and a 4-in-1 card reader in there too.

As well as a well-spaced full-sized backlit keyboard, the 910 also supports Windows Hello, thanks to the integrated fingerprint sensor in the base. Running up to Windows 10 Pro, Lenovo’s also added the standard gamut of own-brand applications, which you’ll either love or hate, but the list is a little smaller versus some of the Yogas from earlier in 2016, which is appreciated.

Whilst the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga is a similarly powerful machine (albeit aimed at different users), the 910 looks to be the first of the line to support the latest 7th generation Intel Core i processors, running up to a Core i7 7500u CPU, up to 16GB of RAM and offering up to 1TB of SSD storage.

All in all, the Lenovo Yoga 910 looks like a seriously enticing package on first impressions, expected to hit the market in October with UK starting pricing suggested at around £1099.
