The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is a dual-screen laptop with two 13.3 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel OLED touchscreen displays, including one in the space where you’d find a keyboard on a more traditional laptop. The multi-function computer features a 360-degree hinge allowing  you to use it as a tablet, and the Yoga Book 9i also comes with a Bluetooth keyboard that an be placed atop to the lower screen and a pressure-sensitive pen for writing or drawing.

Lenovo unveiled the second-gen Yoga Book 9i during CES in January, and now it’s available for purchase.

The 2024 Lenovo Yoga Book 9i isn’t cheap: prices start at $1980 for a model with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155U processor, 16GB of LPDDR5x-7467 memory and a 512GB M.2 2242 PCIe Gen 4 SSD. You can also pay a little more for up to 32GB of RAM and up to a 1TB SSD.

Last year’s model carried a similar price tag when it launched with a 13th-gen Intel Core processor, and prices don’t seem to have fallen in the time that it’s been available: Best Buy is still selling models with Core i7-1355U processors for $2000 and up.

For the most part the new model is a lot like last year’s: it has the same 2.8K OLED displays with a 60 Hz refresh rate that can be positioned as two side-by-side screens in portrait mode, stacked atop one another in landscape mode, or used in a more traditional laptop or tablet orientation.

Other features that remain the same include a 5MP IR webcam, three Thunderbolt ports, support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.1, an 80Wh battery, and a fairly compact design: the notebook is just 0.6 inches thick and weighs just under 3 pounds.

What’s new is the move to a 14th-gen Intel processor which means that the new chip has Intel’s new integrated AI Boost feature for hardware-accelerated AI performance as well as Intel’s new Low-Power Efficiency processor cores for reduced energy consumption when performing less demanding tasks.

  1. Lenovo: “Is it safe to buy a used laptop or computer? In a word, no.”

    Very bad advice, from a company documented to have sold new computers infected with spyware. It’s not safe to buy any Lenovo products.

  2. I could see this becoming the future of laptops – although only when the price becomes similar to that of 2 android tablets.

    The current laptop form factor of a ‘portable desktop’ is quite poor and cumbersome. How much more useful to have two tablet size-screens which fold up to protect each other, and then open out to 2 x 11 inch screens or 1 x 15 inch screen and only weigh say 1kg?

  3. 32GB of RAM would be useful I think. Mine has 16GB and I have run out of RAM at times, e.g. running Discord and Helldivers. The game seems to run fine on integrated graphics but at 99% RAM usage it eventually crashes.

  4. Yeah… I dunno who this is for, but I wouldn’t buy anything from Lenovo anyways.
    Is this form factor better for creatives though? I see the ad piece is trying to push this for illustrators, video editors and whatnot… I just don’t see it. I’ve edited photos and videos myself in the past and I only see this dual screen thing in laptops being more a hassle than a real help.
    It’s like, yes, having two screens to work with helps in a desktop scenario, but for laptops it’s just clunky and weird. Editing in regular laptops is already kinda bad, the only good thing about it is portability. When you add a second screen to get broken to the device, with a clunky keyboard arrangement… I dunno, perhaps this is for someone else, but it’s definitely not for me.

    1. Remember when Intel was first releasing their 14nm chipsets, we had the release of the likes of the Lenovo Helix. It was a next-gen hybrid computing.

      Basically a tablet, that can dock into a sturdy keyboard-touchpad and become a laptop. It could dock the opposite way to protect the keys. And it has support for an Active Pen with its own silo.

      The hardware and concept was there. Whilst the Intel Processor wasn’t quite adequate, what really ruined the concept was the software. Windows 7 was far from ideal, and the subsequent Windows 8 versions were not optimised. By the time we got something half decent in Windows10 software, and hardware beyond Intel 8th gen, or AMD 6600u. Well it was too late, the concept had died.

      I’m not even curious as to what will come next, as it is is evident that the industry won’t be going out in bang but rather a whimper. Not even that, but just a slow coiling death loop, as laptops kind of get pushed to the wayside. I doubt that the upcoming ARMbooks will change the trajectory, though I wish it would.
