CES 2016: Lenovo has expanded its Yoga range with a new 12.5-inch flagship offering: the Yoga 900S. We take a look at the specs.
Billed as the world’s thinnest ultraportable convertible laptop, the Yoga 900s measures 12.8mm at its thickest point and weighs less than a kilogram. This is achieved via its carbon fiber chassis and a teenier Intel Core m7 processor. Other product highlights include a QHD display with a native resolution of 2560×1440 pixels, Intel HD Graphics HD520, up to 16GB of RAM, Dolby Audio speakers and an inbuilt SSD of up to 512GB. It has also been optimised for stylus use (sold separately) with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
According to Lenovo, its battery provides for up to 10.5 hours of continuous video playback. As with previous Yoga models, the 900s has a 360-degree watchband hinge that allows it to be used in four different viewing modes. Connectivity options include three USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI outlet and an SD card slot. It will be available from March this year with pricing starting at $1099. It will be available in silver and gold variants.

We’ll be giving the Lenovo 900S some hands-on treatment tomorrow. Its predecessor was one of our favourite convertible laptops, so it will be interesting to see how this slightly smaller iteration fares. Watch this space!
