Lenovo has launched the Yoga 900 and the Yogo Tab 3 Pro at an event in India. The Lenovo Yoga 900 is claimed to be the thinnest laptop to come powered by the Intel 6th Gen Skylake powerhouse and is set to rival the likes of Surface Pro 4 and Dell XPS 13.
The Lenovo Yoga 900 promises to offer high end computing prowess packed in to a sleek and portable form factor. As you might have already deduced by the name, the Yoga 900 is a convertible which will join the likes of Surface Pro 4 and the iPad Pro. The Lenovo Yoga 900 comes equipped with a 13.3-inch IPS touch screen display set at a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels and will be powered by the core i7 Skylake Processor.
The RAM option stands at 8 GB and the graphics end will be managed by the Intel HD 520. On the storage front the Lenovo Yoga 900 offers 512GB of SSD storage. The convertible comes with the much acclaimed watchband hinge mechanism that is expected to offer a greater degree of play. The Yoga 900 is super light at just 1.29 kgs and it comes equipped with a better battery pack as opposed to its predecessor, which means that the Yoga 900 will now offer up to 9-hours of video playback on a single charge. At 14.9mm the Yoga 900 earns the badge of thinnest Intel Core i Convertible laptop.
The Yoga Tab 3 Pro is an interesting tablet thanks to the inbuilt projector that can be rotated for 180-Degrees and the video can be beamed on the wall or a ceiling. The Tab 3 Pro is capable of projecting a 70-inch screen which would be a great way to watch those videos or project the same on an actual white screen.
The actual display shapes up as a 10.1-inch QHD display and the device will be powered by the Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor alongside a 2GB of RAM. On the imaging front the Tab Pro 3 comes with a 13-Megapixel primary camera and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor. The device will run on Android Lollipop 5.1 and will draw power from a whopping 10200mAh battery pack. The Tab 3 Pro has 32GB to offer along with a microSD card slot. Another good thing about the Tab 3 Pro is the kickstand which not only encompasses the projector but will also let you rest the tablet at different angles.
It is surprising to see that Lenovo has dropped the base variant for the Yoga 900 and will be offering only the top of the line i7 powered variant with 8 GB of RAM. Since it is a top of line variant, the starting price itself touches the sky at Rs 1,22,090 which is way more than what one needs to shell out for an iPad Pro or even the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Lenovo has partnered with Croma to sell the Lenovo Yoga 900 while the Yoga Tab 3 Pro will be sold on Flipkart priced at Rs 39,990.
