Lenovo Yoga 900
The Yoga 900 has a sleek look that comes in clementine orange, champagne gold as well as silver, and at a mere 2.84 pounds, it has a great weight for an ultrabook, although it is a bit heavy for extended use as a tablet. But it still measures up well against hybrid competitors like the Dell XPS 12 at 3.35 pounds and the Asus Transformer Book TP300LA at 3.96 pounds.
With the Yoga, users are able to use it as a laptop, obviously, but its advantage is the screen can also be folded all the way back to form a slightly thicker than usual tablet, with the touchpad and keyboard exposed on what is now the back, but automatically deactivated.
Or you can fold it so the screen stands up at 180 degrees, in what is sometimes called presentation mode. In this configuration, the keyboard and touchpad are face down on the table or desk, and the presenter uses the touchscreen to navigate.
One complaint from users of the Yoga 3 was that the Intel Core M processor was a bit on the slow side, and with the Yoga 900 Lenovo has upped their game on this front, bringing in new Core i7 processors. The trade-off is slightly more weight for active cooling.
