The hybrid design that combines metal with soft textured materials help the chassis weigh in at only 2.9 lbs. Spec-wise, this model is not as impressive as the Yoga Slim 7 Pro, and the prices clearly reflect this. Still, users can equip the 13.3-inch Yoga 6 with up to a Ryzen 7 4700U coupled with up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage.

Together with the new Yoga Slim 7 Pro models, Lenovo is also launching the Yoga 6 convertibles powered by AMD’s Renoir-U APUs. One of the highlights for this new series is the unique hybrid design of metal and soft-touch materials wrapped in a textured blue fabric.

The specs are not as impressive as what we see on the Yoga Slim 7 Pro, but users can still opt between a Ryzen 5 4500U and a Ryzen 7 4700U with integrated Vega iGPUs, which can be coupled with either 8 GB or 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage. The 13.3-inch touchscreen is only FHD, but comes with good specs like 72% NTSC color gamut, 300 nits peak luminance and wide view angles.

Other noteworthy features include stereo Dolby Atmos SW speakers, fingerprint reader, backlit keyboard and webcam with TrueBlock Privacy Shutter system, plus an optional digital pen. The new Yoga 6 supports dual band Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.0 and the port selection offers 1x USB-C 3.1 (with charging), 1x USB-C 3.1 (DisplayPort mode/data transfer mode), 2x USB-A 3.1, and an audio jack.

With the included 60 Wh battery, the Yoga 6 convertible is supposed to last up to 18 hours. Thanks to the unique combination of materials used for the design of the chassis, the convertible weighs around 2.9 lbs.

Prices for the Ryzen 5 4500U model start at €899 (including VAT) and Lenovo mentions that availability is scheduled for this October. Note that the prices are in Euro as these models appear to only be launching in the EMEA region.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
