Lenovo Yoga 920 Review : Final Thoughts

Performance Summary: The latest Lenovo Yoga 920 is an solid performer in all respects and handled our test suite well. The system's performance in all of our benchmarks represents what we've come to expect from Intel 8th Gen Kaby Lake R machines. In terms of graphics performance, it also hung with other top Kaby Lake R based machines like the Dell XPS 13 and HP Spectre x360. The Lenovo Yoga 920 took a couple of first place slots for us in testing and is right up there with other current-gen ultrabooks in its class, performance-wise. It also delivered this performance cool and quietly, especially compared to its predecessor.

Lenovo got a lot of things right in this redesign of the Yoga 920. Starting with Intel's 15W Kaby Lake R processor, to its cooling and acoustics, this renovation of the Yoga platform is well executed. Retailing for around $1,279 as tested, you can take your pick of Copper, Platinum or Bronze, like the model we received for testing. For an additional $200 you can upgrade the screen to 4K as well, which will most likely chew up a little more power for the extra pixels but will certainly add to the display's crispness and pop.

The new Lenovo Yoga 920 is elegant and well mannered, both in terms of its performance and presentation. It's understated in some respects, but its classic Lenovo Watchband hinge design adds a touch of glitz and class. This machine has all the horsepower any power user would be looking for in a highly portable and convertible system, and it does so in style. There's also the added utility of the machine's pen and stylus interface, if sketch and annotation input are useful tools to have in your bag. There's stiff competition in this class and form-factor of hybrid ultrabooks, but the Lenovo Yoga 920 is one to keep on your short list for consideration.
