Lenovo Launches New Yoga PCs
Lenovo has unveiled its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops with its new 14-inch flagship convertible laptop the Lenovo Yoga 9i, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 made with recycled materials. This year at CES, Lenovo also announced three new Q-series consumer monitors, the Lenovo Q27h-20, Lenovo Q27q-20, and Lenovo Q24i-20.
The Yoga 9i convertible (14”) comes with Windows 11 and up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1260P processor combined with Intel Iris Xe graphics to deliver superior performance where you need it most. The new laptop has been verified via the Intel Evo platform to deliver a super-fast boot up from virtually anywhere you use your laptop.
The Yoga 9i comes with a Rotating Sound Bar with quad Bowers & Wilkins speakers, consisting of two woofers and two tweeters on the top and sides for authentic acoustics and the immersive sound of Dolby Atmos. It also comes with up to 4K OLED IPS touchscreen with slim bezels, also VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certified for 100 percent DCI-P3 color accuracy and optimized by Dolby Vision.
It comes in 16:10 format for less scrolling and a 60Hz refresh rate for everyday computing. The TÜV Low Blue Light certification means it’s specially calibrated to help reduce eye strain. It comes with an edge-to-edge keyboard design layout offering a bar of new 1-Click Function Keys with five additional shortcut keys marked with user-friendly icons for quick access to frequently used features, such as:
- A shortcut to shifting into Smart Power performance mode that enables higher performance or longer battery life depending on what you’re doing at the time – without having to remember the previous combination of Fn+Q keys. Just look for the performance icon to enable Smart Power that optimizes system battery life and cooler thermals with up to 28W TDP and a 75Whr battery.
- The clever Background Blur function instantly helps to protect the privacy of one’s surroundings on video calls via Microsoft Teams or other collaboration platforms with just a click; to show a clear image of you and your background once more, just press the key again.
The soundbar built into Yoga 9i’s 360-degree hinge provided Lenovo’s design and engineering teams with the unique opportunity to add a smarter Audio mode changing function key that we call Vibe Check, that helps users better perceive differences between nuanced audio profiles for a more satisfying listening experience for practically any type of entertainment. Choose from music mode to gaming mode or movie mode for a greater sound effect that doesn’t kill the vibe.
In addition to smart sense lighting that auto-adjusts the keyboard’s backlighting based on ambient light, there’s the Color mode key that makes it easy for users to switch their system appearance between dark and light mode via Windows’ native color settings feature to see which works best. Besides giving your eyes a break, enabling dark mode for an OLED display can potentially help preserve the life of the battery, and it comes in handy in low-lit environments.
In the same column of keys, you’ll discover that the Fingerprint reader was placed here instead of where your wrists typically hit the palm rest for added comfort and a cleaner appearance. It also has an FHD infrared (IR) camera with convenient smart login and electronic privacy shutter.
It also has a 45 percent larger touchpad for increased finger space, click performance, and accuracy, plus more ports including two Intel Thunderbolt 4 ports and expanded Wi-Fi 6E for fast dedicated connectivity.

It’s the first thin and light laptop SKU of its kind from Lenovo to be targeted for Intel Evo verification3 with advanced graphics, remarkable TDP 60W performance, up to 100Whr battery capacity, and Rapid Charge Express.
Intuitive design, technology, and fashion are all changing, and in some cases starting to merge together, and in case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot of talk about the environment right now. And in many ways, Lenovo is ahead of the curve with the new Yoga 6 (13”) convertible laptop that was inspired by all the ways we make choices in our daily lives that affect the environment.
Living more sustainably can start with simply choosing a 2-in-1 laptop in Dark Teal hue made with recycled materials, including a cover made from recycled aluminum, or a fabric-wrapped cover option made with 50 percent recycled plastics and treated with a stain-resistant finish for resilience.
Just think, that plastic bottle in the recycling bin today could be used to help make two fabric covers tomorrow. Thirty percent of recycled plastics were used in the power adapter. The Yoga 6 is also free of mercury, arsenic, and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free, and comes ENERGY STAR certified and EPEAT Silver certified for meeting energy-saving and environmental standards.
Besides being more eco-friendly, this lightweight convertible is powerful with AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Mobile Processor and integrated AMD Radeon Graphics built on leading 7nm technology to deliver ultra-fast performance via up to 8 powerful cores, good value with sleek Windows 11 user experience, and a hyper-efficient battery life6 plus Rapid Charge Boost.
Yoga 6 offers a 13-inch Full HD 16:10 ratio touchscreen display for crisp picture quality and Dolby Vision, and two front-facing speakers and Dolby Atmos for an incredible sound experience. Plus, you’ll get more I/O ports over the previous generation and the optional pen comes bundled in select markets.
The new 27-inch Lenovo Q27h-20 monitor comes with a stylish design and Lenovo’s natural low blue light technology certified by Eyesafe for better eye protection. This four-sided near edgeless display delivers an excellent user experience via QHD IPS HDR capability for vivid color performance that’s 95 percent DCI-P3, 99 percent sRGB and Delta E<2 accurate.
Transform your Lenovo Q27h into an entertainment connection hub with a convenient USB-C one cable docking solution to enable device charging and/or display extension to show content across multiple screens; it’s the smarter way to provide up to 90W of charging power to your laptop to get work done. Ideal for everyday usage with an integrated phone holder and smart speaker to reduce desk clutter, its distinctive asymmetric metallic arm can be adjusted to match your viewing height for maximum comfort.
Plus, a solid Terrazzo grey base brings stability and that extra feeling of luxury consumers have come to expect from Lenovo design. Also on offer bringing modern families, the smarter value choices they crave wrapped in a gorgeous package are two more Q-series consumer monitors – the larger 27-inch Lenovo Q27q-20 with up to QHD resolution, and the 23.8-inch Lenovo Q24i-20 with up to Full HD.
For individuals looking for a wireless mouse with a premium look and feel to boost productivity, look no further than to the ultra-portable Yoga Mobile Mouse with low-profile, or the new Yoga Performance Mouse with ergonomic high-handed design and programmable buttons. Available in Cloud Grey and Dark Teal hue to complement new Yoga devices, they’re built with three adjustable settings for higher sensitivity of up to 2400 DPI, plus a dynamic scroll wheel with dual speeds.
Both fully-functional mice deliver users with the accuracy of an IR sensor, a dual-host Bluetooth connection for greater precision, and a long-lasting integrated battery that’s easily recharged via USB-C port to make low-battery notifications a thing of the past. And if the look of fewer wires is appealing, instead of cluttering your home office with several random chargers, why not upgrade to an elegant on-table solution that enables the simultaneous charging of up to four devices, including the new Yoga mice.
Meet the compact Lenovo Go 130W Multi-port Charger that aims to remedy consumers searching for an open port via a single charging hub that offers three USB-C power delivery ports with up to 100W laptop charging and one USB-A port with quick charging up to 18W.
