Model: The Yoga 910 is a sleek and powerful 2-in-1 laptop that is sure to catch anyone’s eye. Its body consists of smooth, aluminum panels on the top and bottom, with shiny and polished metal sides. With Lenovo’s own signature watchband hinge holding everything together, the Yoga 910 definitely secures itself on the short list of the best-looking laptops on the market. The Yoga 910 is just 14.3 mm thin and weighs 1.38 kg, making it slightly larger and heavier than the HP Spectre x360, but still easy to carry it around everywhere in a bag. Featuring tiny 6-mm wide bezels, Lenovo is able to incorporate a 13.9-inch display versus a standard 13.3-inch screen normally found on a system this size, giving users more to look at without taking up extra space. The display of the Yoga 910 comes in either a FHD IPS 4K high-definition touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels or a UHD IPS 4K high-definition touchscreen with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Camera-wise, the Yoga 910 sports a pretty standard 720p webcam, but due to its nearly bezel-free display, the webcam is located in an awkward position - below the display instead of in a more typical top-mounted position. Users may go around this by using the Yoga 910 in tablet mode or tent mode when making video calls, but this will make the keyboard inaccessible.
The touchpad is large enough to provide more ample room to mouse around, and it responds quickly to multi-touch gestures, as well as left and right clicks. The Yoga 910 also comes with a fingerprint reader, arming the device with an extra layer of biometric security. Its backlit keyboard has a relatively stiff 65g of actuation weight, which provides for a pretty snappy typing experience overall. Under the hood, all models of the Yoga 910 run on a 7th generation Intel Core i7-7500U processor clocked at 2.70 GHz, and paired together with Intel HD Graphics 620. The RAM capacity is 8 GB, and is upgradeable to up to 16 GB. It has a 256 GB PCle SSD hard drive, expandable up to 1 TB. Thanks to its 48 Wh battery, Lenovo rates the Yoga 910 to have up to 10.5 hours of battery life as stated in Notebookcheck’s initial article on the laptop. While the Yoga 910 comes with one USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB Type-C port, it does not support Thunderbolt 3. That means that data transfers will not be as quick, and the device cannot be connected to a dock with a single cord for data, video and power. However, it is safe to say that this is a feature that is hardly used today; at least not by the majority laptop users.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.
These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
6820HK: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.
From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
83.33%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
