Forget the Macbook Pro | Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i, Slim & Powerful Laptop Legend!
Source: Tech Spurt English
The Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i, or Slim Pro 9i as it's known in the US, is one of the best slim and light laptops of 2023 for power users. Boasting a 13th Gen Intel processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 GPU and PureSight Pro display, the Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i is beefy enough for video editing and gaming. Yet this 14 or 16-inch notebook is also impressively portable, making it an ideal alternative to Apple's Macbook Pro. Gamers and creators will love the Intel 13th Gen power, backed by an RTX 4000-series GPU so editing and online deathmatching are silky smooth. The Lenovo Slim Pro 9i remains impressively quiet despite the next-gen performance, while that slender chassis is easy to slip inside a backpack. You get a 3k display on this 14-inch model, upgraded to 3.2k in the 16-incher. The Yoga Pro 9i also serves up some beefy speakers, a well designed keyboard, privacy webcam and loads of great features.

FINALLY! - a Professional Laptop that actually puts out
Source: JerryRigEverything English
Lenovo over here putting the 'Pro' back in 'Professional'. And huge thanks to Lenovo for sponsoring this video and sending over the laptop. With a dedicated Nvidia 4070 GPU and a blistering Intel Core i9 processor, this laptop is basically good at everything from homework to eating chicken dinners. Look I don't know what the kids are doing on laptops these days - I just know its a really really powerful machine.

First Impressions: Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i (2023) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i (2023) appears to have gotten a lot of things right. There’s a price that looks reasonable for the performance, but a caveat is required here until we receive full pricing details. You’ll be able to customise your build to either fit mid-tier creative and gaming needs up to something that will accommodate professional creators on the go and higher-end gaming. The full package is backed up by a keyboard that offers a good first impression and a wondrous display. It’s not the most portable device and other features that I didn’t have the opportunity to test out, like the speakers and webcam, will also play a part in determining if this is up there with the best of them.

90% Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i 16 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Is the Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i better than the MacBook Pro? Tough question. The Lenovo has a faster screen with a touch interface, an Nvidia GPU that makes it better suited to gaming and, in my view, a superior keyboard. The Apple laptop counters with far longer battery life, better HDR performance (but that’s a MacOS vs Windows issue) and better connectivity. Like-for-like, the MacBook Pro is considerably more expensive. My review system has the Mini LED display, Core i9 CPU and RTX 4070 graphics, but I can’t find that exact model on sale in the UK. The otherwise identical RTX 4060 model is, however, readily available for £2,299, and since the performance drop-off between the RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 is not that dramatic, I’ve based my value-for-money conclusions on that. What can be said though is that the Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i 16 is one of the very best MacBook Pro rivals yet, topping the HP Omen Transcend 16 and Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Ultra in terms of graphical and audio performance, even if it similarly falls foul in battery life.

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.

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.
