The Lenovo Yoga 900 series has always been pushing the boundaries of design and innovation, but those large bezels always bothered me. Luckily, Lenovo just announced a refreshed Yoga 900 – now with the 910 designation – at IFA in Berlin, Germany.
Due in October, the new Yoga 910 improves a lot of the little things to make a compelling two-in-one convertible. Here is what you need to know and check out our hands-on video to see it in action.

Let's start with where Lenovo went right with the Yoga 910 over its predecessor the Yoga 900. They've finally added a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello (finally!), slimmed down those chunky bezels by making the display larger (up from 13.3" to 13.9") and even offer a pretty ridiculous 4K variant.
As someone who has owned or used a few Yoga's in the past the Yoga 910 for me is now a compelling option. You're getting their fantastic keyboard, an ultra-slim PC at just 14.3mm thin, and up to a Core i7 processor – 7th gen at that all with that cool looking hinge. Toss in the ability to flip around and be used as a tablet or in tent-mode and it's great to see Lenovo make a comeback from the earlier Yoga 3 Pro from 2014, which was terrible.
Take a look at our hands-on video and let us know if we should review it when it hits markets later this Fall.
