Lenovo Yoga 9i Review 2022


The 9i has all the necessary improvements and is the ideal aspect ratio. The ultraportable market is very crowded that includes well-known models such as that of the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 as well as The Dell XPS 13 along with the HP Spectre the x360 14. All of these are excellent laptops that aren’t expensive and have the potential to be a hit with a wide market.

Although it’s true that the $1,729.99, Yoga 9i doesn’t come as impressive as those models in terms of aesthetics, it’s still good to use and comes with set of benefits which make it stand out from the crowd. One of the most important that stands out is its OLED display that has (thankfully) been upgraded to a 16:10 aspect ratio and has been used on several of Lenovo’s top laptops over the last year.

Lenovo has fixed nearly every problem I experienced with the previous Yoga 9i & here is the LENOVO YOGA 9I REVIEW  and I’m satisfied with the results. The laptop is however, right now, significantly difficult to get your hands on than the year before. It’s a great laptop that is constantly improving and I would prefer it were easier to get right now.

Lenovo Yoga 9i Review

 Other improvements from the model last year include a brand new edge-to-edge keyboard that has an additional row of functions keys, a bigger touchpad as well as the rounded edges and corners which make it more comfortable to usage and a more welcoming design.


Good Stuff:

  • 16:10 OLED screen
  • New design with rounded edges
  • Excellent audio
  • Sturdy construction

Bad Stuff

  • Couple strange keyboards
  • There is no place to store the stylus
  • Ports with limited selection

Buy for $1,104.99 m Lenovo

Beginning with the screen that is an important aspect of the laptop’s appeal. The screen is an OLED display with a resolution of 2880 x 1200 pixels (non-OLED 1600 x 1200 resolution is also available and the 4K version) with stylus-friendly support (but there’s no storage garage built in however, which is disappointingly). 

The display is glossy and emits minimal glare in bright lighting, however I was not a huge enthusiast of the design. It was able to pick up a remarkable amount of smudges, which were difficult to eliminate over the course of my week of usage and didn’t offer an especially smooth glide when it was used as an touchscreen. It makes for a fantastic image, with a great contrast and vivid colors.

Another major modification has been that the keyboard is from edge to edge, with a row of functions keys on the right side (similar to the way HP is doing with different models for some time). The keys can be used to alter power profiles as well as audio profiles, to blur the background of video calls, and switch on dark mode. 

They are useful however I would prefer they could be customized — there’s no way to alter the settings as the best I’ve been able to locate, and I’m sure there are lots of users who could come up with a more use for the hotkey that is dedicated to an option to toggle dark mode. Another thing to note concerning the keypad is that arrows that go up and down are half-sized, whereas those on the right arrows are full-sized. This doesn’t bother me too in the least, but I’m sure that it could make some of you angry.

I enjoy using the keyboard in terms of typing. In particular, it’s very quiet. This is becoming more important for me as I’ve been taking laptops with me frequently — your typing shouldn’t be distracting to those who are around you. Lenovo has also made the touchpad, which is now 3.15 inches x 5.31 inches. I didn’t experience any specific issue with the previous touchpad’s size, however, surely, I’ll opt for larger touchpads (and there were no problems with the palm rejection).

The third feature that’s changed is the design. The new Yoga 9i looks extremely quite round. The corners are rounded, while the edge is rounded. Everything’s round. It wasn’t something I saw in the images when the device was first announced however it does make an enormous difference when you look closely. I wasn’t aware of how the sharp edges of laptops can pierce into the wrists of users until they tried this Yoga 9i. It’s significantly easier to use and carry over the multitude of laptops with sharp edges (especially models with sharp edges such as The Spectre Line) And now, I’m not looking back. It’s an obvious design decision that I truly hope that more laptop makers adopt this design.

The new look isn’t affecting the quality of the construction. The entire thing is made of aluminum, and it’s incredibly solid. There’s not any flex on the keyboard or screen. The hinge is solid and is easy to close and open, and there was no wobble on the screen I noticed. The finish is nice with no marks or fingerprints and no marks after a rough week of testing, which included flights and several train rides. The reasonable (though far from being a category-defining) weigh of 3.09 pounds makes it an ideal traveling companion too.

Lenovo Yoga 9i Review: Improved with Modifications

Also, the conference calls have been improved with modifications. The webcam is now 1080p and is superior to the camera last year’s 9i providing a crisp and accurate image. It comes with a physical shutter and also supports Windows Hello facial recognition. Lenovo’s Smart Assist software (which is activated and deactivated within Vantage’s control center Vantage Control Centre) can also be used to turn off the device at the moment you leave.

The soundbar that rotates on the hinge, which has been a fixture in the line of Yoga 9i includes Bowers & Wilkins speakers. It’s still producing some of the finest audio quality in the Windows laptop market. This is so loud, I can’t listen to music that is more than the 80-percent mark without being overwhelmed.

In addition to the minor nitpicks listed in the previous paragraphs, the most significant problem is that the selection of ports — which isn’t even remotely unique in this area It’s a bit very limited. The package includes 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, one USB-C, one USB A and a headphone jack and that’s all. I’m happy to see USB-A slot, which many rivals have abandoned and those who want the HDMI or SD port will have to settle in dongle-land.

Also, there was something happening in the microphones built into the device because they stopped working on my Zoom calls several times when the device was low in battery. Lenovo could not reproduce this issue, and I could have received an incorrect device.

The 9i model I own (including the Intel Core i7-1260P processor, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage as well as the 2880 x 1800 OLED display) is one of the Best Buy model that Lenovo claims will cost $1,729.99. It’s not available in the store yet. As at the time of writing I’ve been unable to locate any 12th-Gen Yoga 9i models for sale or anywhere else and a quick look at other reviews shows my experience isn’t atypical. (I’ve included the model from the 11th Gen that you can purchase if the device is what you’re looking for.)

Lenovo Yoga 9i Review: Current Model:

It’s becoming an issue that the most current models of the Lenovo laptops are difficult to locate. (Lenovo claims it’s Best Buy has models in the warehouse, and they’ll return to stock shortly, but Lenovo told me that they’d announced that their Slim 7 would be back in stores soon when I reviewed it but after a month I’m still unable to locate it.)

 I’m sure there are a myriad of issues affecting the supply chain around the globe at the moment and I’m also not experiencing issues getting listings from retailers in stock for other laptops that appear to have already been launched. Although I’m impressed by how great it is I’m restricted in the amount I’ll recommend it until I’m sure you’ll be able to buy it.

The performance is as impressive as one would expect from a 28W 12th Gen Core i7. The 9i is certainly faster than the 9i of last year’s. It can handle an Zoom call in the middle of a bunch of apps and tabs that are on the Battery Saver power profile, with only a little heat, and sporadic fan sound. Editing a set of images was not a problem even though the absence in a SD slot renders the 9i a poor option for editors.

For battery longevity, the 9i lasted 7 hours 38 mins of uninterrupted usage, which included many Chrome tabs, along with some Zoom calls as well as Spotify streaming on top every now and then. It’s looking like it will be in line with what you can be expecting from ultraportables of the current Intel Generation. You’ll likely get through your workday with lighter tasks — for instance, on an afternoon when I mostly used Google Docs and didn’t have any Zoom calls, I lasted more than nine hours.

One thing I don’t like: Just like many others Yoga laptops, this one has a fair amount of software that is bloatware. There were a variety of McAfee antivirus software was pre-installed and I was receiving ads all the time. It took me a while to uninstall it as I had to shut down all of my browsers and restart my system after. This is a little excessive for a product that’s nearly $2000.


The main issue with the Yoga 9i currently is it’s availability. It’s currently out of inventory all over the world is quite a shame since I’d like to send lots of people to it. The issue with the speaker is an issue that I’d like to see resolved Watch this space for updates on that, since it’s likely to affect the score.

In a world in which those two issues are resolved it’s a great laptop. Yoga 9i is a great product with a few flaws here and there that might be a problem for some, but not necessarily for the majority. I’d recommend it over the $3000 ThinkPad X1 Yoga every day The ThinkPad is a more technically advanced laptop but the 9i is more user-friendly and more enjoyable.
