360-degree hinges have become increasingly popular on modern notebooks, allowing the screen to open and fold back over itself until flat, offering various configurations to suit different types of usage. Of course, Lenovo's Yoga line offers perhaps the most famous examples of this type of device - and the company has just unveiled the newest addition to its range.
The Yoga 900 made an impromptu debut in recent leaks, so its arrival hasn't exactly come as a great surprise today. Nonetheless, Lenovo's latest Windows 10 convertible features some pretty high-end specifications for a relatively thin and light device.
Multiple configurations of the Yoga 900 will be offered, with the following key specs:
- 13.3-inch IPS LCD with Quad HD+ (3200x1800px) resolution
- Up to Intel Core i7 (6th-generation / 'Skylake) processors
- Up to 16GB RAM
- 1MP camera (720p video recording)
- Up to 512GB SSD storage
- 4-in-1-card reader
- Wi-Fi 802.11 ac
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 2 x USB 3.0 with Type-A connector
- 1 x USB 3.0 with Type-C connector
- JBL Stereo Speakers with Dolby DS 1.0
- Battery life: Up to 9hrs video playback / up to 10hrs web browsing at 200 nits brightness
- 324 x 225 x 14.9mm; weight starting from 1.29kg
The Lenovo Yoga 900 comes in three color options: Clementine Orange, Platinum Silver and - inevitably - Champagne Gold. It's on sale now in the United States, priced from $1299.
