Lenovo Yoga 910 looks very convincing

The other day the son of my friend asked me for advice. He had waited all year for a new MacBook Pro to replace his ageing MacBook Air. But he did not like the range that Apple came out with. Too expensive for him. He wanted 512 GB storage and that meant either 2200 or 1940 € with or without the new Touch Bar, plus dongles. I suggested another MacBook Air which he did not like because of the screen res.

Then I suggested the Yoga 910 but warned he would need to use Windows. He said, no problem. He had worked with Windows. And then he looked at the machine and said "this is it". Just like that.

I tried the Yoga 910 only briefly at IFA in Berlin back in September. And I did like it. There is one adjustment necessary. The right shift key is way too small and you will hit the up arrow key initially. But if this is your only computer, you will adjust quickly.

Yoga 910 has two USB Type C port on the left side. And it retains a USB Type A port on the right. In that respect it's a perfect bridge between the present and the future. There is a model with a 4k display coming up, but the HD display will give you much longer battery life.

The display looks kind of weird with almost no bezel at the top and sides and a huge chin at the bottom. This is where the sensors sit, and the webcam. If you video conference and don't want the other party to look up your nose, just turn the device over into the tent configuration.

This is btw a full unibody metal design. My old Yoga 3 Pro was plastic. It was thinner, it was lighter, it had a higher resolution. But I think that Yoga has improved tremendously with this new machine.

Now I only need one.

Habe mir letzte Woche noch das Yoga 900 mit 4K Display geschossen, da Lenovo anscheinend die Lager leer räumt und Preise massiv gesenkt hat. Muss sagen, dass ich bis jetzt sehr angetan bin.
