Lenovo Yoga Home 900 blurs lines between AIO desktop and tablet

Lenovo is well-known for its outside the box solutions for modern PC users and the new Yoga Home 900, announced on Monday, does little to shy away from that reputation.

The 27-inch touchscreen all-in-one Windows 10 PC, boasts a slim profile and, thanks to a three-hour battery life, also allows for use on the move.

The Jack-of-all-trades offering offers a 10-point, full HD, multi-touch display and can support up to an Intel Core i7 processor (Broadwell). It has room for up to 8GB RAM, and also rocks a 1TB solid state hard drive.

As well as an all-in-one PC and portable Windows 10 tablet, it can also be used as a standalone display thanks to its HDMI out and USB ports.

The device, which Lenovo is pitching as a tool ideal for collaboration, will be available this month for $1,549 (around £1,000).

Also on Monday, Lenovo announced the successor to the popular Yoga 3 Pro, in the shape of the Yoga 900 tablet/laptop hybrid, which Lenovo says is the thinnest of its kind.

This Windows 10 machine has a 360-degree hitch, rather than a detachable display allowing it be be used in tablet or tent mode.

There’s a 13.3-inch QHD+ display, Intel Skylake processors, up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage on the solid state drive.

Lenovo is promising a 50 per cent increase in battery life over the 9 hours cleaned by the Yoga 3 Pro, so it’ll be interesting to see how that holds up.

The Yoga 900 goes on sale from today from $1,199 (around £775) and will be available in clementine orange, platinum silver and champagne gold.
