Lenovo is introducing two new 14 inch laptops with 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake processors. The Lenovo Yoga 9i is a 3.1 pound convertible laptop with up to a 4K touchscreen display, an optional leather cover, and a $1399 starting price, while the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 9i is a clamshell model with a 180-degree hinge and a thinner, lighter design. It will sell for $1599 and up.

The IdeaPad Slim 9i is coming in November, while the Yoga 9i is coming in October. There will also be a 15 inch version of the Yoga 9i that features a 45-watt 10th-gen Intel Core i9 HK-series processor and support for up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q graphics.

Lenovo will offer the 14 inch Yoga 9i with a choice of all-metal or aluminum and leather designs, which with leather covering the lid on the latter option. The 15 inch version of that laptop comes in a single slate grey option (at launch, at least).

A leather cover comes standard on the Slim 9i, meanwhile… which I have to say is actually a bit of a turn off for me. It’d be nice to have the option for an all-metal version.

Here are some of the key specs for each of the three new laptops:
