86.4% Double trouble: Lenovo Yoga Book 9i 2-in-1 Dual Screen OLED convertible review | Notebookcheck
We've all seen the dual-screen Asus ZenBook and VivoBook laptops, but Lenovo is taking it one step further by replacing the keyboard and clickpad altogether with a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen. It works for the most part if you can deal with the limited customization options.

60% Lenovo Yoga Book 9i review: wonderfully weird or weirdly wonderful?
Source: T3 English
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is one of the most interesting laptops we’ve reviewed in 2023. Or even in recent years, come to think of it. But it’s not going to be the most practical pick for many people. Our main complaint is it often doesn’t feel all that handy to use as a normal laptop when out and about. Working from a pure touchscreen interface? Not much fun. And while taking out the wireless keyboard improves matters a load, that’s not always ideal. Oh, and the glossy glass touchpad? Still rubbish. The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i shines brightest when working a bit like a dual-screen desktop PC that can be stashed in your rucksack. If that’s what you’re after then welcome to a slice of hybrid-laptop heaven.

80% The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i’s dual screens boost productivity unless you’re on the go
Source: Mobile Syrup English
Currently, the Lenovo website lists the Yoga Book 9i as "coming soon" with no price. However, it previously listed the Book 9i at $2,656 in Canada, though you could push that price higher by customizing it with extras like additional storage. While definitely expensive, it’s not significantly more than some high-end Windows laptops and 2-in-1s, notably Microsoft’s Surface Pro 9 and Laptop 5. For example, a similarly-specced Laptop 5 would run you $2,209.99, and a Pro 9 would cost $2,449.99 (and that’s before necessary accessories like the keyboard). The Yoga Book 9i’s price, thankfully, includes the must-have keyboard and folio accessories that allow the device to function at its best. Ultimately, I wouldn’t recommend the Yoga Book 9i as a device for working on the go, especially given its portability issues. That said, it offers a very unique PC experience and can outstrip the functionality of a traditional clamshell laptop when you’ve got it set up at your desk.

Lenovo’s Versatile And Transformable Yoga Book 9i 2-In-Everything Is A Literal Work Of Art
Source: USA Today English
I’m skeptical of any laptop company that makes claims regarding how its product will improve my workflow; a lot of things are not made with neurodivergent brains in mind. But the Yoga Book 9i lives up to Lenovo’s claims and has been a better tool than I could have ever imagined for my unique brain. Efficiency isn’t just about how fast a computer can sort a spreadsheet with lots of formulas, but also how you can physically manipulate the device you’re using, to make your “organic chips” process information faster. That’s the Yoga Book 9i, a snappy machine that is both efficient in processing, power draw, and battery life, and can physically transform for a variety of use cases. Some of the closet alternatives you’ll find with some similar combination of price, specs, and features are the Apple MacBook Pro 13 M2, Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i, and Acer Swift Go 16 , but none of them can do what the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i can do.

80% Lenovo Yoga Book 9i review: Two screens are better than one
Source: Expert Reviews English
Is the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i a gimmick or a game-changer? I would say the latter because the dual-display setup makes a lot of sense when you have a couple of high-quality and high-resolution OLED touchscreens, something previous laptops of this type lacked. If you need two screens and maximum portability then there’s nothing to compete with this ingenious machine. The Yoga Book isn’t just a one-trick pony, though: the excellent sound system and good battery life mean that even if you use it as a conventional laptop with the Bluetooth keyboard, you’ll still have an excellent user experience. For once, reinventing the wheel has resulted in a better wheel.

The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a unique device in this category thanks to its dual-screen design, but with a high price that can’t be ignored. You can be rightly sceptical over how such a laptop can be worth this much cash but it strikes gold as a way to carry two screens in your work bag. The range of modes isn’t the coup that Lenovo would like to sell it as though.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Review: A Dual Display Laptop Done Right
Source: Hot Hardware English
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a radical departure from a typical, clamshell laptop, and simply put, it is just fun to use. Though it is not the highest performing laptop we’ve seen, the dual 2.8K OLED touch displays, great webcam, solid speakers, stylus support, and innovative user interface all make for differentiated and high-quality computing experience. We could easily see this being an outstanding notetaking, drawing, design or general productivity laptop with far more screen real estate than you can get on any traditional notebook. As previously mentioned, the only ask that we might have is perhaps the inclusion of an SD card reader to complement the Thunderbolt ports to make loading photos and videos easier, but we understand why that might be excluded due to space constraints. Aside from that, what you see is what you get with the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, with it's unique, useful dual display features.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9i review: The world isn’t ready for dual-screen laptops, but Lenovo is
Source: Engadget English
As the first laptop to feature two displays, the Yoga Book 9i is a rather divisive machine. Starting at $2,000, not only is it really expensive, its performance is also slower than more traditional competitors in this price range. However, for people like me who constantly yearn for more screen real estate when I’m away from home, Lenovo has created something that is more than the sum of its parts. When space is limited, the Yoga Book 9i’s clamshell mode feels right at home on an airplane tray table. But when it's not, it can expand into a portable dual-screen workstation–complete with all the fixings of your desktop at home. And when you need to pack up, everything collapses into a neat, semi-self-contained bundle that fits in the smallest of laptop bags. The Yoga Book 9i is a nifty little transformer that’s more engaging than anything Michael Bay has directed in the last two decades.

All things considered, the Yoga Book 9i is a great execution by Lenovo. On top of a unique, versatile dual-screen design, it also offers users the convenience of a two-screen configuration on the go without having to lug around extra hardware. The provided accessories are thoughtful and do not add much bulk, so users can feel that they are getting good value after a significant investment into this laptop. With a $3,699 price tag, the device won’t be an easy buy for the average user, but if you can convince yourself to make use of the laptop to the fullest, it will definitely come in handy for a variety of situations.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Review: Living The Double Display Life
Source: Lowyat.net English
Before I tried the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, I assumed that the concept of a dual-display laptop was just a gimmick with more cons than pros. Now that I’ve been using it for a while, I’ve sort of bought into the idea of having just that much space without needing to hook up to an external monitor. Yes, the speaker could be better, but given that I personally mostly watch YouTube videos on my laptop, I’d say that it suffices. If you’re the kind that uses the built-in speakers on your laptop to watch films instead of using headphones or even just watching it on a TV, then this device’s speakers might disappoint you. I have no issues with the battery life as I don’t usually need to use my laptop outside for more than a couple of hours. That being said, the weight might be a minor annoyance for me while travelling, especially when coupled with the folio stand and keyboard.

While the idea of a dual-screen laptop seems like a far-out concept, with the Yoga Book 9i, Lenovo is proving there’s a lot of merit to its design. By including a bunch of bundled accessories including a stylus, a magnetic keyboard and a folding kickstand cover, the laptop can transform from a standard clamshell to a portable all-in-one in seconds. Its daul 13.3-inch OLED displays are punchy and bright and, despite having two panels instead one, battery life is pretty solid. The big issue is Windows because, while Lenovo’s hardware is solid, Microsoft’s OS isn’t quite ready for the dual-screen laptop revolution.

70% Lenovo Yoga Book 9i review: Seeing double
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Yoga Book 9i is a laptop strange enough that the core question here is not "is it any good?" but "why the hell do you want it?" This isn't the niche foldable dream of a laptop-sized thing can can turn into a desktop-sized PC, because the two displays are very much separate here. Love the idea of a dual portrait monitor setup you can carry around with you, or like having one widescreen display sitting above the other? Awesome, the Yoga Book 9i is for you. For the rest of us, the Yoga Book 9i's awkwardness when used as a plain old laptop casts a shadow over the bold design, especially given how pricey this thing is. Still, there are plenty of highlights: great speakers, bold OLED displays, long battery life and a highly usable wireless keyboard - but exactly who'll enjoy them, and under what circumstances? The jury is still out.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Review — It’s a game changer but isn’t for everyone
Source: Ausdroid English
The obvious answer to this is, do you have the budget? $4,749.00 is a huge price to pay for a laptop and you could easily get a couple of very good laptops with change at that price, so if you’re shopping on a budget, this isn’t the laptop for you. Where I see this will really hit the mark is with travelling workers who want to maintain productivity and content creators who need, and value screen real estate but don’t need discrete graphics for their work. The hardware is really good-looking, as well as being highly functional and a delight to use. In reality, there are a few gripes and depending on your use case, some will have an impact on you, whereas others will not. It’s impressive hardware and a game changing form factor; if you truly need the screen space on the go, this really is an absolute beast of a machine. I’d happily tell anyone that fits the market for this to go and grab one, because I just don’t see any way they’ll be disappointed.

80% Lenovo Yoga Book 9i OLED Review: Dual OLED displays are more a revolution than a gimmick
Source: It Pro English
The idea of taking a laptop and replacing the keyboard deck with a second display is not new. Acer tried it with the Iconia 6210, which was built around two 14-inch, 1,366 x 768 touchscreen displays back in 2010. I dimly recall fiddling about with one and thinking it was an answer to a question nobody had ever, or would ever, ask. When faced with a product like the Yoga Book, something that could just as easily be described as daft as revolutionary, it helps to be able to distil what it offers into a concise and simple sentence, so here goes: The Yoga Book is a Windows laptop with two displays. If you do not need two displays, there's no need to pay £2,000 for the Yoga Book when you can buy something like the Asus Zenbook 14 Flip for half the price. But the Yoga Book could answer your prayers if you need a mobile two-screen solution without all the palaver of a separate portable display, most of which are rather drab and dreary IPS affairs.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9 (13IRU8) review – behold the king of all 2-in-1 laptops is here!
Source: Laptop Media English
Speaking of gaming, the dual-screen gaming mode is something special. Both panels can be used to play optimized titles (Asphalt 9, Modern Combat 5, and Dungeon Hunter 5). We had some fun with Asphalt 9 and it is such a joy to utilize the second screen for on-screen controls and map visualization, while you can enjoy the gameplay on the main panel. If Lenovo continues to work closely with other developers in order to optimize more titles for Lenovo Yoga Book 9 (13IRU8), this can be a deal breaker for many of us. Thanks to the Lenovo Vantage app you can choose between different performance presets, many Audio modes, you can set Eye Care mode, etc. The Lenovo Yoga 9 User Center is the main event when it comes to software tweaks. This is a visual tutorial that can show you all the possible tricks and features of this machine.

There’s a certain finesse to how Lenovo pulled off the dual-display design on the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i. The laptop is incredibly elegant, and it’s just as capable, whether you’re doing general productivity work or editing a batch of high-resolution images in Lightroom. Its screens are gorgeous as well, and the extras offer a great alternative if interfacing with a virtual keyboard and a virtual trackpad is a little too futuristic for your taste. Beware of that steep price tag, however, and make sure to bring port adapters.

Source: Gadgetguy English
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a stunning device and, if you spend more time touching your notebook’s screen than typing on its keyboard, it might be the productivity king you’ve been waiting for. Two gorgeous OLED panels and the origami-style folding stand make for the most flexible of 2-in-1 designs. Lenovo has clearly put a lot of thought into making the dual-screen concept as practical as possible. By including a physical keyboard in the box, it flat-out acknowledges that typing on glass doesn’t suit everyone and is not a great experience. While the Bluetooth keyboard probably drives up the price, it in turn delivers a notebook that offers the best of both worlds. That said, considering the price tag, you’d need to have a use case where the dual-screen configuration offers a significant benefit to your workflow. You could pick up a decent notebook and a decent tablet for less, but the Yoga Book 9i could be your 2-in-1 to rule them all.

Lenovo Yoga Book 9i: Making A Case For Situational Computing

The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a very interesting and compelling new form-factor for situational use-cases. While it can be used in a more clamshell orientation and without all of the accessories it really shines when users can find their ideal posture and accessory set up. The Yoga Book 9i doesn’t beat an all-around traditional clamshell laptop or even a 2-in-1 detachable, but it improves upon the 2-in-1 convertible concept while also offering additional use-cases for niche experiences. As I mentioned, day traders, engineers, artists, C-suite level executives who deal in docs all day, lawyers, and others may find the trade off in price and traditional convenience worth a hyper-focused experience.

60% Lenovo’s Yoga Book 9i is for the two-screen lifestyle
Source: The Verge English
Two screens at the same time. That is the whole appeal of Lenovo’s Yoga Book 9i in a nutshell, as best as I can tell after using the device for a couple of weeks. The $1,999.99 9i, for the uninitiated, is a dual-screen clamshell touchscreen laptop that eschews the traditional keyboard deck for a second touchscreen on the bottom half. Lenovo has been experimenting with nontraditional laptop designs for years, from foldable ThinkPads to twisting laptops with E Ink displays and virtual keyboards, and it hasn’t always gone well. High prices, awkward software, and unconventional designs have kept them from really being anything you should buy. The Yoga Book 9i is not without some of those compromises. Still, it is Lenovo’s best execution of the dual-screen form factor and doesn’t feel nearly as much like an experiment as Lenovo’s earlier ideas.

Two grand is pricey for an ultraportable, but the Yoga Book 9i is no mere ultraportable (perhaps why it sold out at Lenovo.com during our work on this review).

The Yoga Book 9i is a successful experiment in dual-screen PC design that raises the bar for Lenovo’s competitors. Its slim profile, 360° hinge and attractive OLED screens are well-suited for both touch input and use with the included stylus. This versatility is a key strength, especially when combined with a great webcam, solid microphones and impressive speakers. However, the wireless keyboard and reliance on a virtual keyboard make the Yoga Book 9i frustrating to use as a regular laptop.

If you’ve been dying for more screen real estate while on the go, then rest assured that dual-screen laptops are finally here in a refined and polished package. On the outside, the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i looks like a typical laptop, albeit a stylish one, built with sturdy aluminum and sporting a beautiful matte teal finish that is surprisingly good at resisting fingerprints. It’s only when you open it that you realize Lenovo has rewritten the rulebook for how you can station your screens. The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i sports two 13.3-inch 2.8K OLED screens that deliver decent color and contrast in a taller 16:10 aspect ratio. It’s a lot of screen space that runs with an average 60Hz refresh rate, but it really spreads its wings when you deploy it with the included folio stand.

The $2,000 Yoga Book 9i is available to preorder right now. Overall, it's a solid laptop, but one that you'll likely find yourself having to do a lot of mental gymnastics in order to use it without any of the traditional input methods. Lenovo took a chance with the Yoga Book 9i by not only building something that goes against what everyone thinks a laptop should be due to complacency but by actually selling it to customers.

If you're someone who loves using new tech that's not fully baked, and you're in the market for a new laptop, then the Yoga Book 9i is worth considering. Otherwise, I'd wait a few generations for Lenovo, or another company for that matter, to work out the kinks of a dual-screen -- and only-screen -- laptop.

Overall, this is an amazing machine to work with, especially if you have a multi-window workflow. From editing documents to research to task management, the utility that a second screen adds is almost priceless. The fact that you can use this as a normal laptop as well is just icing on the cake.

To get the most out of the Yoga Book 9i, you’ll need to carry around a few extra components.

So, if you’re actually considering buying this unique laptop, you’ll need to decide if improved multitasking is really worth the extra money. Owning a piece of tech this unique is fun at first, but once the shine wears off, the dual-screen multitasking is this laptop’s strongest value proposition.

We’ve seen several iterations of dual screen laptops over the years, each with significant compromises or crazy price tags, but Lenovo has gotten it right. This is a slim and lightweight 13.3” laptop with an Intel Core i7 CPU, ample RAM and storage, a 5MP webcam and 2 identical 13.3” OLED displays supporting pen and touch. It has 360 degree hinges and can be used with the hardware keyboard resting on the lower display or placed anywhere on the desk you like. For those who normally need a portable or desktop secondary monitor, the Yoga Book 9i might be ideal. The laptop comes with a very stable folding stand (portrait and landscape modes supported), Lenovo Bluetooth mouse and keyboard and pen.

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.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


79.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
