Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga 9 14 ITL 4K
Lenovo replaces the 1080p touchscreen with a 4K model and upgrades the processor to an Intel Core i7-1185G7. Our update to the existing review should clarify whether the more expensive high-end configuration is worth the money and whether the 2-in-1 can really benefit from more pixels and a theoretically better processor.

Is the Yoga 9i good enough for an outright class win? Not quite. I found the trackpad and fingerprint scanner just too bothersome. Is the HP Spectre the best then? Again, no. While the HP’s OLED screen is a delight, the Yoga 9i's display runs it a very close second and is bigger. And the Yoga has a better sound system and superior battery life. The Dell then? None of the competition has the XPS 13’s super-slim screen bezels but you don’t get a pen let alone a slot for one, or a Type-A USB port for that matter. And what about Asus’ ZenBook Flip? The thermal management issues in our review sample would give me pause if I planned on intensive use. If it was my money I would plump for either the Dell XPS 13 because of its super thin bezels or the Yoga 9i because of the speaker quality but both machines have their benefits and drawbacks.

Now the most important question: should you buy the Lenovo Yoga 9i or not? In a nutshell, yes, if you have the pockets for it. The Lenovo Yoga 9i costs over INR 1.5 Lakhs, which brings it in the league of premium laptops like the Apple MacBook Pro and the Microsoft Surface Pro. While that price, INR 1,74,990, might seem like a lot, especially for a Windows laptop but in my experience, it deserves every bit of the spotlight that it is asking for. It’s a colour-balanced and well-lit touchscreen display that works flawlessly whether you are using it in laptop mode or in tablet mode. The fact that it has a rotating soundbar and a notebook-like foldable design makes it a tad bit more alluring. It also gives it an edge over the existing premium laptops in the market right now. Performance-wise, it is capable of handling anything that you throw at it, which adds to the overall allure of this device. Sure, the fingerprint sensor is a buzzkill and the mouse buttons could be improved upon to make them as flexible as the keyboard, but other than that the Lenovo Yoga 9i has no visible flaws.

As a result, this laptop only narrowly falls short of an award; we found the trackpad and fingerprint scanner just too irksome. Its strongest argument when placed against its rivals boils down to the excellent combination of speaker and screen, but that's not enough to compensate for its weaknesses.

If you’ve thought about upgrading your laptop, the 14″ Lenovo Yoga 9i is a worthy contender. Not only is the Yoga 9i absolutely gorgeous, but it is powerful and fast enough to handle most tasks. This is a laptop you’ll be proud to pull out of your bag; it will look different than the others at school, work, or the coffee shop without being ostentatious, but most of all, it is a laptop you’ll enjoy working on. And when it is time to relax, you’ll be especially grateful for the amazing soundbar.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
