It’s been 15 years since the first convertible made its debut and its progress continues to forecast an untimely death of PC era. So, if you’ve been waiting to upgrade your laptop, now’s (really) the time to make a move. Lenovo’s line of Yoga 2-in-1s have been among the best offerings out in the market thanks to flexible hybrids with solid builds and top-notch specs. These devices are capable of offering all the benefits of a laptop like faster processors, long battery life along with portability. Blending power with style and portability has always remained a unique feature of Lenovo Yoga line tablets. Lenovo Yoga 920 is no exception.
Lenovo Yoga 920 2-in-1 convertible laptop
The very first appearance of it convinced us that the convertible is not just a mere generational upgrade to its earlier predecessor (Lenovo Yoga 910) but a completely re-engineered product. It runs an eighth-generation Intel Core chip but manages to keep the body of the convertible just 14mm thick. It also includes JBL speakers with Dolby Atmos audio. The 2-in-1 somewhat resembles its sibling in build features – Lenovo’s signature “Watchband hinge”.
Apart from that, Lenovo Yoga 920 boasts a slightly larger 13.9-inch touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 display. The backlit chiclet keyboard gives a slightly spongy feel to the fingers, comfortable enough for basic typing. Also, there were no issues experienced with the use of the precision touchpad during the demo.
The whole package got even better with the addition of full Windows Pen and Ink support, new far-field microphones and a healthy mix of two USB-C ports with support for Thunderbolt 3 and a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and even a built-in fingerprint reader with support for Windows Hello as part of its standard kit.
During the battery rundown test, the Yoga 920 lasted 9 hours and 42 minutes, which is comparable to its competitors that have an average battery life of 9 hours 50 minutes. On other fronts, Lenovo includes support for Windows Ink across more applications than ever before.
The biggest disappointment about this Lenovo convertible is that Yoga 920 it doesn’t come with an on-board microSD or SD card reader. Plus, the webcam resides at a wrong location (below the screen). The price of Lenovo Yoga 920 starts at $1,329.99.
