There were many interesting products on display at CES 2023, but one of the most innovative was the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i (2023). It’s the world’s first full-sized dual-screen laptop, specifically build to increase your productivity. More about the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i (2023), and its expected price in Nepal here.
Lenovo Yoga Book 9i (2023) Overview:
The front of the Yoga Book 9i is all about showing off. There is no keyboard or trackpad, only two 13.3-inch screens placed side by side. Both have 2.8K resolution, a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, and Dolby Vision HDR support.
Unlike the Asus ZenBook 17 Fold, which is a true foldable laptop, the screens on the Yoga Book 9i are separated by a visual hinge in the middle. It’s similar to the Microsoft Surface Neo, but with a larger form factor. And being a Yoga series laptop it is convertible, so you can use it in tent or tablet mode.
Moreover, you can use just one screen and have a fairly typical laptop experience. If you want it that way, the bottom screen pops up a virtual keyboard and trackpad. But if you prefer the tactile feel of a key press, there is also support for a detachable Bluetooth keyboard.
There’s obviously more you can do with this dual-screen setup. Like you could watch videos on one screen while taking notes on the other. Lenovo gives the example of displaying a PowerPoint presentation on one screen while displaying presentation controls and notes on the other. Both screens support a stylus, making it easier to take notes and do other tasks.
There are countless things you can do with it. And remember, you have to stack them vertically or side by side to get a dual-monitor experience. Lenovo includes a stand that can be used to position the screens vertically.
Powering the laptop is a 13th Gen Intel U-series processor—specifically the Core i7-1355U and Core i5-1335U. These are both 15W TDP processors with 8 performance cores and 2 efficiency cores. Memory-wise, it will be available with up to 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage and 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM. Fueling the laptop is an 80Whr cell that is claimed to deliver up to 10 hours of dual-screen video playback.
Furthermore, the connectivity options on the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i (2023) include three USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports, one of which supports AOU BC 1.2. For wireless connectivity, there is WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 support.
Likewise, you get a Full HD webcam with an IR sensor and privacy shutter. On the audio front, it comes with two 2W speakers tuned by Bowers & Wilkins and supports Dolby Atmos. The laptop will be available in a single Tidal Teal color.
