Lenovo Yoga 900-13 (The New Yoga 4 Pro) November Launch In Europe

The new Lenovo Yoga 900-13 aka Lenovo Yoga 4 Pro have started taking orders in Europe ahead of a launch in Germany in the first week of November and the UK on November 13. Lenovo will hold a joint Windows 10 event with Microsoft in San Francisco on Monday, October 19, so with a bit of luck we might get to hear more about the planned North America launch of this device then.

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro model was unveiled in London on October 9 last year, and was launched a while later for $1299, while cut to $949 now in a clearance sale. So the timing is right for a new Yoga Pro. It was one of the first devices to ship with Windows 10 pre-installed.

Highlights of the 13.3-inch 360 degree rotating Lenovo Yoga 900-13 laptop include Windows 10 Home, a processor up to 6th. gen. Intel Core i7, a 3200 x 1800 resolution display with 16:9 aspect ratio, up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, USB 3.1, and 1.5W JBL speakers. Colors this year include Clementine Orange, Champagne Gold, and Platinum Silver, but this is only visible on the back and on the hinges. It has a battery life of almost 10 hours.

The Yoga 3 Pro was great in most ways, but when looking at the new model today I find myself asking why Lenovo couldn't make a tablet out of it at this point in Q4 2015?
Compared to top model tablets like Surface Pro 4 / Surface Book, both of which can do all the things that the new Lenovo Yoga 900-13 can do and more, I immediately start to think about the inconvenience of having a laptop over a tablet, like the 13.5-inch Surface Book that only weighs 728 grams while the Lenovo Yoga 900-13 weighs 1.29 kg, partially because you'll always have to drag the keyboard around on the Yoga. And if you flip the keyboard on the Lenovo Yoga, there's always the worry of accidentally hitting the keys and engage something you didn't plan to during the process.

But as we like to say, there's a computer for everyone these days, and choice is always a great thing.
