Lenovo Yoga 920 Overview
The Yoga 920 comes in three different colors, Platinum Silver, Bronze, and Copper. As you can see we received the bronze version. The chassis of the Yoga 920 is all aluminum, so picking it up the first time it has slightly more weight than you might be used to. But too be fair it is still quite light at just over 3 lbs. One thing you’ll notice is that the aluminum chassis is a fingerprint magnet.
The only thing you’ll find on the lid of the Yoga 920 is a small Yoga logo in the top corner. I actually like this more subtle look, plus this means more room for stickers!
One thing I’ve always loved about Yoga laptops is their ability to be transformed into different orientations. The Yoga 920 is no different, it features Lenovo’s watchband hinge, which is the best implementation of this type of a hinge on a laptop that I’ve seen. It allows you to use the Yoga 920 as a tablet and much more, which we will get to a little later in this review.
Being an Ultrabook you can imagine that the Yoga 920 is pretty thin, it is 0.5-inches at its thickest point. On the left side you’ll find the two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and a combination microphone / headphone port. The first power is your power port at all, so if you plan on getting a dongle make sure it supports power delivery.
On the opposite side you have a single USB 3.0 (Type-A) port and power button. The USB port is an always-on charging port so even if you have the Yoga 920 closed the port will still charge your devices.
Opening the lid you are greeted with a 13.9″ FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Multitouch display. You’ll notice just how thin the bezels are on the side, only 5 mm! The display is pen-enabled and supports 4,096 levels of sensitivity. Towards the top of the display you’ll find a 720p HD camera with a dual microphone array, this should be sufficient for Skype calls.
The keyboard on the Yoga 920 has the chiclet-style keys we are used to seeing on Yoga laptops. It is backlit and features many different shortcuts a long the smaller function row. One big change in the keyboard from the previous Yoga 910 is that the left shift key has been brought back to its normal size, that is one thing many people complained about with the 910. The precision touchpad sits almost center below the keyboard and has a very smooth surface. On the far right is a fingerprint reader that allows you to sign into your system with Windows Hello.
