When we think of laptops, we think of a computer with a display and a keyboard. Hybrids are pretty common these days where the display portion of the laptop can be turned around and are given touch capabilities, thus turning it into some kind of pseudo tablet.
But it seems that Lenovo has decided to push the envelope even further by debuting the YogaBook 9i (Gen 8). This is part of Lenovo’s Yoga series of hybrids, except that in this case, Lenovo has opted to give this laptop two screens instead of one.
It is clear that Lenovo has created this laptop with creative professionals in mind as the dual touchscreens allow users to draw and edit images at the same time. It even comes with a folio that’s flexible so that users can prop up the laptop either in horizontal or vertical positions, giving it a book-like look if they prefer, which would make it excellent for reading.
There is also a detachable keyboard for those who prefer a more tactile typing experience, and the display can also be folded back onto itself if you prefer using a singular display.
As for its specs, the YogaBook 9i (Gen 8) features a 13.3-inch OLED display with a 2.8K resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, we can find Intel’s 13th gen Core i7-U15 processor with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe storage. There is no discrete GPU but it will utilize Intel’s Iris X graphics instead.
There is also an 80WHr battery that is rated for up to 10 hours of video playback using both screens, but you can squeeze out another 4 hours if you only use one display. That being said, the Lenovo Yoga 9i (Gen 8) won’t come cheap. It is priced starting at $2,099.99 and will be available come June 2023.
