Cool to the Touch and Responsive in your Hand
The interactive touchscreen experience comes standard on the Yoga Slim 9i as it does on our Yoga 9i 2-in-1 convertibles. Bring entertainment to life on the versatile 14-inch Yoga 9i with up to 4K IPS VESA DisplayHDR 400 and the metal option weighing just 1.37 kg (3.02 lbs), or go for the 15.6-inch panel option for up to 4K IPS VESA DisplayHDR 400, also with 500 nits of brightness and weighing 2 kg (4.4 lbs). Help protect your eyesight while working longer hours on your laptop by adjusting the tones of your display using Eye Care Mode via Lenovo Vantage.
With this caliber of visual horsepower stacked inside such a thin and light package, we had to rethink the thermal design of the Yoga 9i 14-inch model. To keep things cool to the touch, we added thermal venting holes on the underside of the keyboard, which lowers the device temperature by an average of two degrees Celsius over previous generation. We also increased the size of the hidden heat vent behind the Yoga 9i’s rotating hinge, while slimming down our fan blades, just a few examples of the purposeful details that allow you to accelerate the apps you use every day.
No matter if you go with the 14- or 15-inch model, you’re getting our best consumer features in a convertible. Because with the 15-inch Yoga 9i with up to 16GB DDR4 memory and up to 2TB PCIe SSD storage, you’re also getting discrete graphics and two Thunderbolt 3 ports for power, speedy data transfers and external display support—all wrapped up in a sturdy yet lightweight metal body. Both convertibles come with Windows Ink and a garaged active pen that fits comfortably in your hand and quickly recharges inside the PC when you’re not using it to sketch, doodle or take notes. And if you’re a scribbler who prefers a real pen in your hand, the new elastomer nib on the Yoga 9i’s digital pen replicates a nicer, smoother tactile feel when writing.
Also offered on our hand-tooled leather-covered 14-inch models in Shadow Black hue is an edge-to-edge Glass Palm Rest that looks super-premium and is smooth to the touch. An encased Smart Sensor Touchpad provides vibrations when pressed to recreate the familiar feeling of a real click; this shift to haptic feedback allowed us to increase the touchpad’s clickable active surface area by nearly half and we’ve coated it with a fingerprint-resistant finish too, so you need not worry about unseemly smudges. And for a shortcut to more functionality in these times of repeated hand-sanitization or washing, appreciate the more accurate login of the new Ultrasonic Fingerprint Reader that’s liquid resistant and works even with damp or freshly sanitized fingers.
Smarter Features add more Convenience
Flow seamlessly between work, entertainment, and passion projects a whole lot faster with smarter features. Power on your Lenovo laptop by simply lifting the lid. Improved Yoga laptop keyboards come with soft-landing dome-design keypads to enable a smooth, comfortable and responsive typing experience that feels bouncier, and the Yoga Slim 9i also comes with Smart Sense Keyboard that auto-adjusts your keyboard’s white backlighting based on ambient light conditions.
To stay better protected on the Yoga 9i, simply slide your webcam’s TrueBlock Privacy Shutter closed; featured for the first time on the Yoga Slim 9i is a new privacy advancement aimed at maintaining a slimmer top bezel while still shutting out unwanted onlookers—just flick an electrical shutter switch on the side to cut power to the Yoga Slim 9i’s built-in infrared (IR) camera for peace of mind. Your IR camera and Windows Hello work with Lenovo Smart Assist to enable smarter features powered by a Lenovo designed and tuned chip to achieve benefits like a more secure hands-free facial recognition login, plus you’ll get shoulder-surfing Privacy Alerts and automatic screen-locking when you walk away, thanks to the attention-sensing software from Glance by Mirametrix®. Your laptop will even call out with an alarm if it’s ever moved without your permission when your back is turned at your local coffee shop. Yoga laptops unveiled today are also capable of auto-upscaling video content quality to 4K from 1080p through use of machine learning in Windows Media Player and today’s popular web browsers, known as Super Resolution 2.0.
For even more hands-free functionality, use your laptop’s built-in mics to speak to Alexa® even when your PC is locked. You can set reminders, control your smart home, play music and either a skip song or crank up the volume and do all of this without having to turn your attention away from the document you’re editing or the website you’re viewing. Keeping your household in sync can be easier than ever with the Alexa Announcement feature allowing you to broadcast short voice messages to Alexa-enabled devices. In the coming months, you can expect even more features from Alexa to help you stay connected, enjoy your music, and control your smart home.
