Lenovo’s first laptop with a hybrid case design featuring a combination of metal, “soft touch materials” and fabric. The Lenovo Yoga 6 is a 13.3 inch convertible notebook with a 360-degree hinge, support for up to an AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor, and a lid covered in a denim-like blue fabric.
Lenovo isn’t the first company to include materials other than plastic or metal in a laptop case. Microsoft has been using fabric for some of its Surface devices for years, and a few years ago HP launched a tablet with a built-in leather cover.
Aside from the unusual choice of materials, the Yoga 6 looks like a device with decent specs:
