Lenovo Yoga 920 Vibes Edition Review
div> Luxury options exist in every product category, from clothing to cars. Sometimes you pay more for a custom design, exotic materials or meticulous craftsmanship and sometimes the price is inflated only for a brand name. In the PC world there are limited components to work with, but manufacturers often try everything with functions and building innovations. Lenovo debuted a few years ago with a complicated and expensive new kind of hinge with the Yoga 3 Pro, inspired by metal watchbands. No other company has such a thing, and it is still only found on the most expensive models from Lenovo.
The hinge is not the only premium touch on the new Yoga 920. It joins a select group of non-gambling laptops. that costs about Rs. 1,50,000, and it has high-end design as well as specifications. There is much too much fun on the Yoga 920 on paper, but for this kind of money we are looking for perfection. This is our complete review.
Lenovo Yoga 920 Vibes Edition design
During the international launch event, we saw the Yoga 920 in different metallic colors . In India, however, Lenovo only releases the Yoga 920 Vibes edition, a special edition with a black pattern cover. Lenovo says it has chosen this design from 130 ideas submitted by students from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, Italy. It should symbolize dynamism, lightness and simplicity, and we like it a lot. The pattern is subtle yet visually appealing, and because it is printed on highly reflective glass, it seems like it has depth and movement. The dull silver frame also contrasts nicely with the dark surface.
Lenovo keeps its watch band hinge for its most advanced products and the Yoga 920 is the latest. It consists of several smaller segments, some of which are dull and others highly polished, and contrasts clearly with the otherwise minimalistic body. This is a laptop that makes people look twice, and whether that is good or not is highly subjective.
The Yoga 920 can be folded backwards and used as a tablet or supported in tent mode. is more stable. With 1.37 kg it is an unruly tablet. You can not sit back and relax with it in one hand or resting against your knees. When they are fully folded, the two halves of the device do not lie flat against each other, so that the upper half tends to dip and bounce back each time you tap the stylus or a finger. You can see this happening in our video review, which is embedded above.
Speaking about this, the Yoga 920 Vibes Edition comes with Lenovo's active pen 2 in the box. It needs a AAAA battery, and fortunately there is an included, because they are expensive and hard to find in India. The Active Pen 2 promises 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and works with Windows Ink, the framework of Microsoft for stylus compatibility between hardware manufacturers and app developers.
Unlike some other 2-in-1s, the Yoga 920 does not have a lock, loop or magnetic dock for the stylus. Instead, you get a small plastic bracket that snaps into the only USB 3.0 port so that you have the active pen at hand. Other than the obvious disadvantage of blocking the only full-sized USB port on the device, we found this inconvenient because it is easier to release the bracket than to slide the stylus in and out, and the positioning is not ideal with the Yoga 920 in tablet mode. Instead of a convenient way to carry the Active Pen 2 with the Yoga 920, it's just an extra thing to worry about losing.

The Lenovo Yoga 920 Vibes edition attracts attention and that is exactly what many people will love. It is much better as a laptop than as a tablet. but even if you never use it that way, the flexible hinge and the touch screen are great to have. The hardware is top-notch, and it can handle virtually all your office work and entertainment needs without getting sweaty to work. We would have liked a few small conveniences such as an SD card slot, more USB ports and a better way to carry the stylus around, but generally the user experience ence is pretty slick.
Lenovo has chosen to keep to the high end with only one variant that Rs ko st. 1,49,999. It checks all the boxes for an ultra-wearable premium, but it's up to buyers to decide whether they really want to spend as much as alternatives such as the HP Specter series, Asus Zenbook Ultra and XPS 13 from Dell (recently renewed with a new, ultra-thin design) are available at much lower starting prices. Lenovo's own Yoga 720 costs a lot less and is not very different, although the company has not yet recovered with the 8th generation Core CPU. Even in such an expensive niche segment, you have many choices.
