Lenovo Yoga 900 Manual PDF – The Yoga 900 is a fully reversible laptop with a 13.3-inch IPS touch screen and 3200×1800 IPS. Its image is excellent in most circumstances, especially in the playback of movies in low light conditions, and has a decent amount of brightness. On the downside, the screen reflects a little light, and has a pretty good amount of bezel. It’s hard not to want anything more elegant after the example set by Dell XPS 13.
The selection of ports on the Yoga 900 is minimal but suitable for daily use. You get two USB 3.0 Type A ports, a USB 2.0 charging port, an SD/MMC card reader, an analog audio combo connector, and a USB Type-C port. That Type C gives USB 3.0 (5Gbps) speeds. It does not support Thunderbolt 3, nor does it charge. You don’t get a dedicated video output port, but the Type-C port provides DisplayPort over USB if you use an optional key.
The Yoga 900 is available with an Intel Core i7-6500U CPU, a 256GB or 512GB SSD, and up to 16GB DDR3-1600 memory. All versions come with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Our $1,400 model had its specifications to the maximum, while the core i7’s minimal configuration runs at $1,150.
With a faster CPU, it was no surprise that our Yoga 900 outperformed its predecessor in our PCMark benchmarks, and scored 2,531 versus 1,723 of the Yoga 3 Pro in the conventional home test, which runs the system through basic tasks s such as word processing, web browsing and light photo editing. It also scored 2,778 compared to the 1,988 Yoga 3 Pro in the Conventional Work Test, which is similar to the conventional Home test but with a greater focus on work-oriented tasks like spreadsheet editing. This performance improvement will be shown more clearly the more it is thrown into the Yoga 900.
While the Yoga 900 smokes Yoga 3 Pro, it performs slightly lower than the competition with the same processor. That said, the difference is so small that you won’t really notice.
Yoga 900 SSD makes things move fast. Our AS SSD testbench registered the Samsung SM871 M.2 SATA SSD at a maximum of 473MBps for a sequential read speed and a maximum of 437MBps for a sequential write speed. That’s decently fast, if not as fast as an M.2 PCIe SSD would have been in the same scenario.
The battery life is decent, even if it’s not the nine hours Lenovo promotes. The Yoga 900 lasted 6 hours and 37 minutes during our video summary test, in which we ran an ultra-HD 4K video loopusing the native Windows 10 media player. Thanks to the Yoga 900’s largest 66WHr battery, it is nearly 50 percent longer than the Yoga 3 Pro, with its 44.8WHr power cell.
No one will mix your next album with the Speakers of the Yoga 900, but the clarity is better than average, and there is even a minimum of bass. They will if you’re too lazy to pull out your headphones.
Overall, I have praised Lenovo for its keyboards, and the Yoga 900 is almost as good as possible. It even offers dedicated function keys: the Yoga 3 Pro combined them with the numeric keys in the top row. I have a personal problem with the lack of rake towards the unit and the keyboard, because I encounter many accidents with the spacebar. However, this is easily arranged with a pair of self-adhesive rubber feet to the back of Yoga to add the tilt I need, however.
The touchpad feels very comfortable to use: it doesn’t require much effort to click, and it’s very smooth when you drag your fingers over it. It’s also not too sensitive to tapping. As for the touch screen, I can’t say enough. I wish they would make touch panels that responded just as easily.
There was a good amount of “value-added” software running in the Windows 10 Home system tray, largely courtesy of Intel. Remove it (tip: remove and then reinstall Intel drivers using Device Manager), as well as McAfee for a slightly smoother experience.
The basic warranty of the Lenovo Yoga 3 900 is a one-year period. You can increase that up to three years with accidental damage protection by $219, or choose an option in between.
