Elegant and fast convertible: Only the fabric cover slows down the Lenovo Yoga 6
The new AMD Ryzen 7 7730U is particularly quiet, but also provides a lot of computing power. This is due to the performance profiles, which are cleverly tuned to the tablet- and notebook modes. And there is the display cover, which is covered with fabric in a matching color.

First of all: The AMD Ryzen 7 7730U in the Yoga 6 performed very well in our benchmarks and performance tests. In some cases, it clearly surpasses Intel-equipped notebooks that are also designed for the typical power consumption of 15 W.
The integrated graphics chip, on the other hand, delivers only average performance values, which should still suffice for light media editing. Overall, demanding tasks can be tackled with the convertible.
At the same time, there is an energy saving mode that reduces heat generation and fan noise to a minimum. This is particularly advisable in tablet mode, not least because the battery life is extremely long as a result.
Then there is the design, which can be viewed in two ways: the fabric-covered display lid looks good, feels good and makes the convertible something special.
However, the fabric-covered display lid also collects small particles that get stuck all too easily in its woven pattern. The durability of the fabric is also questionable if the Lenovo Yoga 6 is frequently exposed to friction in a bag or backpack.
Our overall impression is that high working speed, versatile usability and aesthetics have been combined in the best possible way, but this also comes at a price.
All measurements and details about the case, display and equipment can be found in our review of the Lenovo Yoga 6 83B2001SGE.
I've been using computers since 1989 and an Intel 8086. I also remember the Internet before college and university networks were supplanted by corporate and social media. The fascination for the technical leaps and social effects never let me go. In particular, I am most interested in the classic PC - and hardly less so in the laptop, in which the components have to come to terms with little space and power. So it seems only logical that I have been writing technical guides and product presentations since 2015. My physics studies provide the necessary basic knowledge and understanding of contexts.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
