Watchband-hinged 2-in-1. Lenovo's flagship consumer convertible with 13.9-inch screen now comes with Kaby Lake R hardware and a few other noteworthy updates. Our review takes a look how the Yoga 920 compares to other 2-in-1s as far as performance, battery life, and fan noise are concerned.

The new Lenovo Yoga 920 is elegant and well mannered, both in terms of its performance and presentation. It's understated in some respects, but its classic Lenovo Watchband hinge design adds a touch of glitz and class. This machine has all the horsepower any power user would be looking for in a highly portable and convertible system, and it does so in style. There's also the added utility of the machine's pen and stylus interface, if sketch and annotation input are useful tools to have in your bag. There's stiff competition in this class and form-factor of hybrid ultrabooks, but the Lenovo Yoga 920 is one to keep on your short list for consideration.

That about wraps it up. Starting at $1,200, Lenovo's Yoga 920 2-in-1 is not the most affordable ultraportable you will find, but you certainly get what you pay for. The all-metal exterior makes the laptop feel premium on the outside and the internal component selection makes it premium on the inside as well. Although it feels one notch too tight for me, the hinge system is truly the best that money can buy right now. If you're in the market for an ultrabook or 2-in-1 device, it's hard to go wrong with the Yoga 920.

If you can live without the bronze color scheme and unique wristband hinge, the New Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 is a great alternative. Not only does it have near-identical specs, it's about $300 less than the Yoga 920 (when it's at full price). But if you really love that swanky design and are working with a flexible budget, the Yoga 920 is the best of the best.

The Yoga 920’s starting price is $1,329, with our review unit coming in at just under $1,500. If you can live with a less-fashionable design and reduced battery life, the Yoga 720 is a worthwhile alternative for up to a few hundred less. But if you have the coin, the Yoga 920 is a high-end ride.

The Lenovo Yoga 920 gets a handful of improvements and added features including a pen-enabled display and eighth-gen Intel processors to make it one of the best premium two-in-ones you can find.

With two Thunderbolt 3 ports and two more CPU cores, Lenovo's top consumer convertible becomes even more compelling. And how about that phenomenal battery life?

CommentIntel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.
8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company.

In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.
In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. 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.
85.24%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
