Lenovo’s always flexible line of Yoga laptops and 2-in-1s are getting their yearly refreshes here at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. While it looks like we won’t see any new surprises like last year’s Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, we’re excited to see that Lenovo is still interested in keeping their new dual-OLED display laptop around. The next generation of that laptop joins the 2024 Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i, along with the usual Yoga goodness all the way down the line.
Lenovo’s whole slate of Yoga devices are getting hardware refreshes this year, with Lenovo also getting on the AI train. All Lenovo Yoga laptops will come equipped with the Lenovo Yoga Creator Zone, which does the same sort of AI-based text-to-image generation you see from the likes of Midjourney and so many others — which might be of limited usefulness, given a lot of folks already have their preferred service for that.
But, the Yoga Creator Zone gets a little more interesting for Yoga devices that have discrete GPUs — users will be able to train their own AI model. If you’re more interested in having an image generator that only pulls from your own personal style, it could be a pretty useful tool.
2024 Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i and Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1
The 2024 Lenovo Yoga Pro 9i and 2024 Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1 remain Lenovo’s marquee devices in the Yoga line. Aside from the usual hardware refresh, what’s new here is mostly related to AI. Like most devices running Windows at this year’s show, there’s a dedicated Microsoft Copilot key to launch Microsoft’s new AI assistant. Inside, the Lenovo AI Core Chip is the key to making use of the discrete NVIDIA GPU (up to an RTX 4070 Laptop GPU) to power the image training feature of the Yoga Creator Zone that we mentioned previously.
In addition, the Yoga Pro 9i will also feature Lenovo X Power, using the Intel Core Ultra CPU and Lenovo AI Core Chip to optimize performance, battery life, and cooling by intelligently allocating processing power.
The Yoga Pro 9i, a 16-inch device, boasts a 3.2K PureSight Pro Mini-LED display, while the Lenovo Yoga 9i 2-in-1, a 14-inch convertible laptop with a 360-degree hinge, can be configured with either a 2.8K or 4K OLED display. The Yoga Pro 9i has six speakers on board, with the Yoga 9i 2-in-1 getting a 360-degree rotating soundbar housing four Bowers & Wilkins speakers. The 2-in-1 also comes with a smart pen that can be magnetically attached to the cover.
The Yoga Pro 9i will start at $1,699.99 and the Yoga 9i 2-in-1 will start at $1,449.99. These devices are expected to be available starting April 2024.
2024 Lenovo Yoga Book 9i
Lenovo’s dual screen laptop returns, still housing two 13-inch 2.8K OLED displays. The refresh contains Intel’s latest Core Ultra Processors, although we’re curious to see which ones, exactly — powering twice the display and twice the productivity really taxed last year’s device, so we’ll have to hope for either more power from the processor or more efficiency from Lenovo’s new AI features. The 2024 Lenovo Yoga Book 9i also has a rotating soundbar from Bowers & Wilkins.
The 2024 Lenovo Yoga Book 9i will start at $1,999.99 and should also arrive in April.
2024 Lenovo Yoga Pro 7i, Lenovo Yoga Pro 7, and Lenovo Slim 7i
The 14-inch Lenovo Yoga Pro 7i and Lenovo Yoga Pro 7 cater to creators seeking a laptop configurable with Intel Core Ultra Processors or an AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS processor, up to NVIDIA RTX 4050 with NVIDIA Studio validation, and up to a 3K OLED screen.
The Yoga 7i is also available as a 2-in-1 hybrid laptop in 16-inch and 14-inch options. On the other hand, the Lenovo Slim 7i is a thin and portable alternative that is also powered by Intel Core Ultra Processors and boasts a WUXGA OLED screen.
The Yoga Pro 7 (14-inch) will start at $1,349.99, the Lenovo Slim 7i starts at $1,049.99, the Yoga 7i 2-in-1 (16-inch) starts at $899.99, and the Yoga 7i 2-in-1 (14-inch) starts at $849.99. These devices are expected to be available from April 2024.
Notably, the Yoga Pro 7i (14-inch) will not be available in North America.
2024 Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5i, Lenovo IdeaPad 5i 2-in-1, and Lenovo IdeaPad 5 2-in-1
Lenovo announced that the IdeaPad Slim 5i is the first device in the IdeaPad family to feature a 15.3 16:10 display with a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution. It can be configured with an Intel Core 7 U processor or up to an AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS processor, and it boasts a 76WHr battery with Rapid Charge Boost.
For users eyeing the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i 2-in-1, there are choices between 16-inch and 14-inch options. Both variants can be configured with an Intel Core 7 U processor or up to an AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS processor. The 16-inch IdeaPad 5i 2-in-1 comes with a 2K OLED display, while the 14-inch option features a WUXGA OLED display.
The IdeaPad 5 2-in-1 also provides two size options: 16-inch and 14-inch, with display options identical to the IdeaPad 5i 2-in-1.
