Lenovo announced its Yoga 9i earlier this year at CES 2023. The laptop then launched this month, adding another contender for the top spot on our list of the best Windows laptops.
The convertible laptop has a refined design that will look familiar to fans of the Yoga lineup while having some finishing touches that are new. The rounded corners and brushed edges of the PC make it stand out from some of the Yoga 9i's boxy competitors.
The Yoga 9i is available in only two versions when it comes to specs, though there are a couple of colors to choose from, however (oatmeal and storm grey). Both models have a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-1360P CPU and Intel Iris Xe graphics. They also each have 16GB of memory. The main difference between the models is that the more affordable option has 2.8K OLED display while the high-end version has a 4K screen (3840 x 2400).
The higher end model also has double the storage (1TB) compared to the base model (512GB).

Like its predecessors and other Yoga devices from Lenovo, the Yoga 9i can flip around into different modes. Specifically, it can be used in laptop, stand, tent, or tablet mode. The included Precision Pen 2 and the laptop's touchscreen give users some extra options when it comes to input and interacting with the machine.
The speakers of the Yoga 9i live within a soundbar that rotates. As a result, sound fires at you regardless of which posture you flip the PC into.
We'll have a review of the Lenovo Yoga 9i in the near future, so keep your eyes out for more details.
When shopping for the Lenovo Yoga 9i, make sure to check which generation of the device you're getting. Last year's models are still solid laptops — and they're currently discounted — but if you want the latest specs you should get a Yoga 9i with a 13th Gen Intel Core CPU.
