Lenovo Yoga 900S is the Thinnest, Lightest Laptop in the World
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 doesn’t officially begin until Wednesday. However, the conference kicked off today with CES Unveiled, where some companies were allowed to preview their products in a smaller, closed space with limited numbers. Lenovo was one such company that kicked off the event with a bang, unveiling a bunch of products, among which is the Lenovo 900S convertible laptop.
The new Lenovo Yoga 900S, which is a spinoff of the Lenovo 900 that was unveiled at last year’s CES, is officially the world’s thinnest convertible laptop weighing at 2.2 pounds (0.99kg), making even the 3 pound MacBook Air look a little bloated. The 12.5-inch QHD display hybrid laptop also promises up to 10.5 hours of battery life thanks to Intel’s low energy Core M processors powering it, which means the performance of the laptop will take a hit.
That’s not all. Because of its carbon fibre construction, the Lenovo 900S measures at an incredibly thin 12.88 millimetres, which is the same as the iPhone 3GS. The laptop also comes with an active stylus for drawing. Starting at a price of $1,099, the Lenovo 900S will be available in the US in March. It’ll be interesting to see just how well a thinner, lighter laptop from Lenovo will do.
