Yoga 9i Gen 7 Is Lenovo’s New Laptop: our review
January 12, 2022
Lenovo is a major part of the convertible PC circle, and the Yoga 9i is its boss. A spin-off of the Yoga C940, the $1,299.99-and-up 14-inch Yoga 9i is a competent PC in pretty much every region that is important, with an agreeable console, good battery life, and a portion of the better specs you can get at its price tag. Be that as it may, there’s one region where it’s a long way in front of the pack — the sound.
Indeed, you read that accurately. There’s really a 14-inch PC out there with excellent sound. I know. I’m stunned to type that, as well. However it doesn’t exactly outperform any semblance of HP’s Specter x360 and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 Plus in numerous different regions, the Yoga 9i’s inventive speaker configuration keeps it particularly in the superior blend as an extraordinary amusement and sight and sound machine.
Regarding this speaker framework, to begin. There are two descending terminating woofers on the base. In any case, the 9i’s mystery is that the custom tweeters are housed in a turning soundbar, which is incorporated into the PC’s pivot. The situating implies that the barbecues generally face outward, whether or not the PC is in clamshell, tablet, or tent mode.
I’m not misrepresenting when I say this is the best sound I’ve heard from a PC of this size. Its volume more than occupies a room, and it sounds incredible in all directions with blasting bass. The encompass quality was likewise heavenly.
To supplement the sound, the 9i has an extremely decent 1080p touch show with exact subtleties and tones. I’d have no issue watching films and YouTube recordings on it, and you can switch between various picture modes (Dark, Light, and Vivid) with preloaded Dolby Vision programming. The screen is very gleaming, be that as it may, and kicked back a baffling measure of glare in more brilliant rooms. Furthermore, it’s not the most splendid around, maximizing at 290 nits in testing. I likewise wish Lenovo would discard the 16:9 angle proportion, as it has for a portion of its exceptional models in the business space.
The last thing to call out with regards to the undercarriage is its garaged pointer. Garaged pointers are now and again an enormous torment to pull in and out, however, this one was smooth to eliminate. The carport’s area on the right half of the Yoga’s back edge isn’t the most helpful, however, it’s certainly desirable over putting away the pen yourself.
The pointer has a new “elastomer” tip that should imitate the sensation of a pen on paper. That is a reasonable depiction of how it feels by and by, however it additionally implies it’s not as smooth to compose and draw with as other touchscreen pointers. (It’s additionally minuscule — a lot more modest than most genuine pens.) And there are two (tiny) buttons, which can be planned to different assignments — delete, left snap, duplicate, glue, anything you desire — in Lenovo’s Pen Settings programming. You can really look at the pen’s battery here also. Lenovo says it can most recent 40 minutes on a 15-minute charge.
