Rather than just upgrading to the new CPUs, Lenovo has added two new devices to the Yoga convertible lineup. However, the Yoga Home 900 is actually a home all-in-one PC so it’s rather different than the usual Yoga laptops.
Let’s start with the Yoga 900, though. It has QHD IPS panel with 13.3-inch diagonal with the famous 360-degree rotating hinge. On the hardware front, the notebook offers Core i5 or Core i7 Skylake chips from Intel paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD inside. The usual JBL stereo speakers are here as well, but the mos notable upgrade are the larger trackpad and keyboard. Yet, the new version is heavier and bulkier than the previous Yogas, because the battery capacity has been increased and the OEM now promises at least 8 hours of battery life. This comes at the cost of 14.9 mm thickness and 1.27 kg weight. The notebook will start shipping any time now and the asking price is $1 999.
As for the Yoga Home 900, it’s nothing we’ve seen in this lineup before, yet there’s nothing new to it as well. It should be a huge working station for your home, but keeps its mobility at some extent. It has massive 27-inch Full HD touchscreen panel, IPS probably, with battery enough for a 3-hour long working sessions and weighs 7.25 kg. The interesting part is that the screen features the same Yoga hinge for further adjustment. The hardware inside is a bit old-ish – fifth generation Core i7 CPUs (configurable), NVIDIA GeForce 940M GPU, up to 1TB SSHD and all the usual ports like USB, HDMI etc. The starting price is $1 549 and it will start shipping by the end of this month.
