Lenovo’s Yoga 9i gets all the improvements and the right aspect ratio

The ultraportable space is a crowded one, including renowned models like the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, the Dell XPS 13, and the HP Spectre x360 14. These are all excellent laptops that aren’t extravagantly priced, with the potential to appeal to a very wide audience. While the $1,729.99 Yoga 9i isn’t quite on the level of those devices when it comes to artistry, it’s certainly as enjoyable to use, and has an eclectic array of unique benefits that make it stand out. The main one is the OLED display, which has been moved to the 16:10 aspect ratio, as have many of Lenovo’s premium laptops in the past year. Other upgrades include a new edge-to-edge keyboard with an extra row of function keys, a larger touchpad, and rounded corners. Starting with the screen, which is a major part of this laptop’s appeal: It’s an OLED panel with 2880 x 1800 resolution and stylus support. This does make for a great picture, with excellent contrast and colours that popped. The addition of the 16:10 aspect ratio, the upgraded webcam, and exceptional audio with its solid performance, bring it to newer heights.
