In a year in which we have already seen a number of 2-in-1 laptops, Lenovo has saved the best until last with the Yoga 920. It is a follow-up to the fantastic Yoga 910. The Lenovo Yoga 920 supports USB-C ports, boosted battery life, webcam location, and a better keyboard. It retains the 360-degree hinge which is a hallmark of the Yoga range.
2017 has been an outstanding year for convertible laptops along with the devices like the latest Microsoft Surface Book 2. It means that the Yoga 920 has its work cut out if this is to stand out from the huge crowd.
Lenovo has done a superb job with the Yoga 920. It has a thin feel to it and weighs 3.0 pounds (1.37kg). It measures 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.5 inches.
It means it has a nice heft and does not feel heavy. It has a metallic finish and that adds to the superb feel. After a few hours of its usage, the metal becomes the veritable haven for fingerprints. Hence, you might want to put a cloth to keep it free of smudge.
The hinges of Yoga 920 are very attractive. We have fluctuated by thinking that they are stylish and finding them gaudy. There is no doubt in the strength as well as the build quality of the hinges. It is very necessary for a convertible laptop because the hinge is about to see a lot of action.
Just like a hinge on the Surface Book 2, it is strong to angle its screen without body tipping up.
2-in-1 convertible laptops which flip the screens to turn into a tablet, just like a device struggle to give quite as good a tablet experience as 2-in-1s on which the screen separates from the keyboard, like you are still left with a slightly heavy device along with its back that feels like a keyboard (as it is one).
Given the thinness of its design, it is probably no wonder that the ports-wise there are not a huge number of connectivity options. It is a negative point of the laptop. On the left side, there is a headphone/mic jack option. There are 2 USB-C ports (one of which is used as the power supply) on the left side. While on the right side, there is a full-size USB 3.0 port. It is not a very generous offering but yet it is more than the MacBook’s single USB-C port.
