Summary

Beautifully thin, feather-light, and yet unexpectedly sturdy. Packaging is premium. It has a lot of ports too. Amazing device from Lenovo. I did personally expect the battery life to be a little better though. Other than that, I’d like a separate USB-to-LAN converter included as anyone who travels with this form factor would somehow end up at a place with only LAN connection.

By just looking at the Yoga 900, I was blown away by how thin it is. Have you really looked at it? It’s light too. By just touching at the Yoga 900, I was blown away by how thin yet strong it is. To be completely honest, it’s really beautiful.

I can say that Lenovo nailed the Yoga 900’s design here. It’s made out of some material that I think is magnificent. Based on what Lenovo claimed, the Yoga 900 is made mostly out of a magnesium alloy – presumably the same material used on my camera.

This magnesium alloy is just fantastic. I tried to flex it as much as I could, and I just can’t do it. The Yoga 900 is very tough, and it’s just really difficult to flex.

Even the screen itself is very difficult to flex, unlike the ASUS UX501 that we’ve reviewed. The Yoga 900’s lid is just impossibly thin, but it’s just way too strong to be flexed. The entire Yoga 900 is just way too nice to hold.

Let’s not forget about the one most important thing here – the hinge design. According to Lenovo, it’s a wrist watch-inspired design. Surprise, surprise, the hinge design looks amazing, and functions even better. It’s beyond my expectation. The Yoga 900’s hinge is sturdy and surprisingly very tough.

However, the hinge design still suffers from one single major flaw. When the touch screen is used, the lid will jump around. That’s quite unavoidable, given that the hinge will need to have extremely high friction to prevent that from happening. Maybe Lenovo has another hinge design in their minds, and they’re polishing it now.

Let’s take another moment to appreciate the hinge design here. It shines really bright when light is shone in the right angle. Absolutely stunning.
