It was 10 years ago at CES when Lenovo debuted its iconic 360-degree flexible hinge design on the world’s first multi-mode Yoga 2-in-1 laptop that redefined the industry. Designed for versatility and portability as users flip-and-fold from work to play, the sophisticated style of Lenovo Yoga continues to delight.

More than just a multi-mode laptop that flips to tablet mode and back, the premium Yoga 9i delivers an enhanced audio experience that pumps up the loudness factor by an estimated 64 percent over the previous generation.

You’ll also find a Precision Pen 2 or e-color pen inside the box for all those scribblers out there who prefer the feel of a real pen in their hand.

Work and Play While Saving the Planet – Yoga 6
Intuitive design, technology and fashion are all changing, and in some cases starting to merge together and in case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot of talk about the environment right now. And in many ways, Lenovo is ahead of the curve with the new Yoga 6 (13″, 7) convertible laptop that was inspired by all the ways we make choices in our daily lives that affect the environment.

Living more sustainably can start with simply choosing a 2-in-1 laptop in Dark Teal hue made with recycled materials, including a cover made from recycled aluminum, or a fabric-wrapped cover option made with 50 percent recycled plastics and treated with a stain-resistant finish for resilience. Just think, that plastic bottle in the recycling bin today could be used to help make two fabric covers tomorrow. Thirty percent of recycled plastics were used in the power adapter. The Yoga 6 is also free of mercury, arsenic, and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free, and comes ENERGY STAR certified and EPEAT Silver certified for meeting energy saving and environmental standards.

Nearly 25 percent of Yoga 6’s battery cells use post-consumption plastic; even the laptop’s packaging is the “greenest” we’ve ever offered on Yoga by sourcing sustainable paper packaging from responsibly managed and FSC certified forests. Likewise, 90 percent of the protective cushion inside the box was made from recycled plastic. Besides being more eco-friendly, this lightweight convertible is powerful with AMD Ryzen 7 5700U Mobile Processor and integrated AMD Radeon Graphics built on leading 7nm technology to deliver ultra-fast performance via up to 8 powerful cores, good value with sleek Windows 11 user experience, and a hyper-efficient battery life plus Rapid Charge Boost.

Designed for portability and premium entertainment from nearly anywhere, Yoga 6 offers a 13-inch Full HD 16:10 ratio touchscreen display for crisp picture quality and Dolby Vision, and two front-facing speakers and Dolby Atmos for an incredible sound experience. Plus, you’ll get more I/O ports over the previous generation and the optional pen comes bundled in select markets.
