Notably, with its amazing list of powerful specs, ranging from an Intel Core i7 CPU to a super-fast SSD, this laptop can carry out most computing tasks. However, laptops that feature such amazing specs don’t come cheap, and this Lenovo laptop is no exception.
Precisely, as of the time I published this review in March 2022, the Lenovo 910 Yoga had a starting price of $949.99. With such a heavy price tag, can the performance of this Lenovo laptop meet up to expectations?
To find an answer to that question, you have to read this review till the end.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Design, Dimension, and Weight Review
In terms of design, Lenovo left me completely stunned by the 910 Yoga’s design features. Specifically, the classy silver aluminum body of the laptop sends off luxury and comfort at first glance.
Also, this silver aluminum body features a subtle glossy finish that makes the laptop appear even more refined. However, due to this glossy finish, one would assume the laptop to be a fingerprint magnet.
Thankfully, that’s not the case, as the silver aluminum body is not in any way liable to fingerprints or smudge. Besides, due to its aluminum body and wedge-shaped appearance, the Lenovo 910 Yoga looks compact and solid.
As a result, there is little to no flex anywhere around the laptop.
That said, the lid and base of the Lenovo 910 Yoga are attached together by 360-degree metallic hinges. These metallic hinges look luxurious and remind me of a metal wristwatch band.
Besides, as a 2-in-1 laptop, these hinges allow the Lenovo 910 Yoga to be used in numerous modes. These modes include tablet mode, laptop mode, tent mode, and stand mode.
Moreover, the hinges are flexible and not too tight. Hence, transitioning between these modes should be very easy.
Asides from that, due to the not-too-tight hinges, opening the laptop with just one hand should not be difficult.
Focusing more on the lid, the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s lid is adorned by a “Yoga” logo placed at the top-right corner. In addition to that, you will also find a “Lenovo” logo neatly printed at the lower-left corner of the lid.
Moreover, opening this laptop’s lid reveals a sleek 13.9-inch touchscreen display. In terms of performance, this touchscreen display is very responsive, making swiping and scrolling seamless.
Besides, Lenovo offers two resolution options for this 13.9-inch touchscreen display. These resolution options include FHD (1920 x 1080) and 4K UHD (3840 x 2160).
Practically, with either of these resolution options, the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s touchscreen display should offer clear and colorful picture quality. However, with the 4K UHD resolution, the color presentation and picture quality will be much better.
Hence, if you are a graphics designer, I advise you to purchase the Lenovo 910 Yoga with a 13.9-inch touchscreen display with 4K UHD resolution. In addition to its multiple resolution options, this laptop’s display is made with an IPS panel.
As a result, the display offers wide viewing angles. Due to this, you can view the Lenovo 910 Yoga from numerous angles without losing picture quality.
Impressively, the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s display is nearly edge-to-edge on all sides due to its extremely slim bezels. Thus, the laptop looks like a regular tablet when used in tablet mode.
However, because of how slim these bezels are, Lenovo had to place the HD webcam at the bottom bezel. Hence, due to its unusual placement, typing while using this webcam might not be easy.
This is because your fingers or knuckles might obstruct the webcam from viewing your entire face. On the plus side, the webcam offers adequate performance for video calls or regular skyping.
However, this webcam is not the best for taking selfies as it delivers blurry images.
Moving on to the keyboard, the Lenovo 910 Yoga features a standard desktop keyboard. As with most Lenovo laptops, the keys on this laptop’s keyboard are flat and well-spaced in a manner that makes typing easy.
Also, the keyboard offers good key travel, making the typing experience more enjoyable and easy. Just to be clear, key travel is the distance it takes a key to fully hit the bottom when pressed.
To make things even better, the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s keyboard is backlit with two-stage backlighting. Thus, typing in a dark environment shouldn’t be a problem.
Just below the keyboard of the Lenovo 910 Yoga, you will find a touchpad with a set of integrated click buttons. The surface of this touchpad is impressively smooth, allowing for easy finger-gliding and navigation.
In addition to that, the touchpad supports multitouch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom.
On the downside, the Lenovo 910 Yoga offers a minimal number of ports. To be more specific, on the left side of the laptop, you will find only two USB Type-C ports.
Meanwhile, on the right side, this laptop houses a USB Type-A port and an audio jack. That’s all you get concerning the ports on this laptop – disappointing, right?
Hence, for adequate port options, you might need to purchase a docking station.
Coming down to the dimension and weight, the Lenovo 910 Yoga measures 323 x 224.5 x 14.3 mm (W x D x H) and weighs 1380 g. Honestly, with this amount of weight, this laptop isn’t particularly heavy.
As a matter of fact, you should be able to carry the laptop around with ease. However, when compared to most of its competitors, the Lenovo 910 Yoga weighs more.
For example, the HP Spectre x360 – 13-AE086TU measures 306 x 218 x 13.6 mm (W x D x H) and weighs 1260 g.
In conclusion, Lenovo 910 Yoga features a sleek design with a touchscreen display and super-thin bezels. However, the laptop offers a limited amount of ports and its webcam is in an awkward position.
Thus, I will rate the Lenovo 910 Yoga an eight out of ten in this design review section.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Processor (CPU) Performance Review
In terms of processor, the Lenovo 910 Yoga is powered by an Intel Core i7-7500U CPU. This processor is a dual-core processor, meaning it has two cores on its chip.
Due to this, the processor should perform better than a CPU with just one core. In addition to its dual-core, the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s CPU offers a 4 MB cache memory.
Besides, this Intel Core i7 processor has a base frequency of 2.70 GHz and a maximum frequency of 3.50 GHz. Thus, with this processor, the Lenovo 910 Yoga should be able to deliver excellent performance when handling most computing tasks.
To back up the above statement, I will now share the laptop’s result on a Cinebench R15 test. Briefly, Cinebench R15 is a cross-platform benchmark test that measures the CPU performance of a computer when its processor cores are in use.
Therefore, this test is divided into two tests – the single-core test and the multi-core test. For clarity, the single-core test evaluates the performance of a processor when one of its cores is in use.
Meanwhile, the multi-core test estimates the performance of the CPU when all its cores are in use. Moreover, a high score on these tests implies good processor performance.
So, based on the Cinebench R15 test results, the Lenovo 910 Yoga scored 147 points on the single-core test. However, on the multi-core test, this Lenovo laptop scored 354 points.
Impressively, when compared with all the laptops in its class, the Lenovo 910 Yoga surpasses all of them. For instance, the HP Spectre x360 13 w023dx scored 126 points on the Cinebench R15 single-core test.
On the other hand, this HP laptop scored 314 points on the multi-core test. It is worth mentioning that the HP Spectre x360 13 w023dx also uses an Intel Core i7-7500U processor.
Therefore, to end this processor review section, I will be rating the Lenovo 910 Yoga a nine out of ten.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Memory (RAM) Performance Review
The Lenovo 910 Yoga comes with a single memory slot and a standard 8 GB DDR4 2133 MHz RAM. However, this single memory slot is onboard, meaning it is soldered onto the laptop’s motherboard.
For this reason, the standard memory on the laptop can neither be removable nor upgradeable. However, another model of the Lenovo 910 Yoga that features 16 GB RAM is available for users who prefer a higher memory size.
Nevertheless, if you are not planning on carrying out heavy-duty tasks on the laptop, I don’t think going for that option would be necessary. This is because 8 GB RAM should be enough for the Lenovo 910 Yoga to effectively perform most computing tasks.
As a matter of fact, with 8 GB memory, this Lenovo laptop should be able to multitask adequately. To be more specific, even with a dozen Chrome tabs running simultaneously, this laptop should perform smoothly without slowing down even a bit.
For more insights on the laptop’s performance with 8 GB RAM, I will now briefly discuss its PCMark 8 test result. PCMark 8 is an app-based benchmark test that evaluates the performance of a computer’s memory when handling everyday productivity tasks.
Furthermore, an important thing to note about this test is that a high score signifies better memory performance. Thus, based on the test results, the Lenovo 910 Yoga scored 3555 points.
Comparatively, this laptop performed better than the ASUS ZenBook UX360UA, which scored 3435 points on the PCMark 8 test.
In summary, although the Lenovo 910 Yoga isn’t upgradable, its standard 8 GB memory is enough for handling everyday tasks and multitasking. Furthermore, this laptop surpassed one of its closest rivals on a memory benchmark test.
Hence, I will rate the Lenovo 910 Yoga an eight out of ten in this memory review section.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Storage Options and Performance Review
For storage, the Lenovo 910 Yoga comes with a PCIe Solid State Drive (SSD). Furthermore, this storage drive offers a maximum storage capacity of 1 TB.
Thus, even though the laptop doesn’t feature an SD card slot, the 1 TB of storage space should be enough for most users. Besides that, because the laptop uses an SSD, it should offer a fast transfer speed.
Speaking of which, the Lenovo 910 Yoga should be able to transfer (copy) 4.97GB of multimedia files at a transfer rate of 195.7 MBps. Asides from its fast transfer speed, this Lenovo laptop should also offer a fast read and write speed due to its SSD.
To prove this, I will now examine the laptop’s result on a CrystalDiskMark test. CrystalDiskMark is a benchmark test that estimates the read and writes speed of a computer’s storage drive.
In case you’re curious, the read and write speed is the time it takes a storage drive to open and save files, respectively. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that a high “MBps” value on the CrystalDiskMark test signifies a fast read and write speed.
Therefore, based on the test result, the Lenovo 910 Yoga delivered a sequential read speed of 1412 MBps. In addition to that, the laptop delivered a sequential write speed of 578.4 MBps.
Compared to the ASUS ZenBook UX360UA, which also uses SSD, this Lenovo laptop has a faster read and write speed. Specifically, on the CrystalDiskMark test, the ASUS ZenBook UX360UA delivered a sequential read speed of 452.1 MBps.
In addition to its sequential read speed, this ASUS laptop delivered a sequential write speed of 421.3 MBps.
In conclusion, the Lenovo 910 Yoga features a super-fast SSD that offers sufficient storage space. Thus, the Lenovo 910 Yoga deserves a rating of nine out of ten in this storage review section.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Graphics Card Performance Review
For graphics, the Lenovo 910 Yoga comes with an Intel HD Graphics 620 graphics card. This Intel GPU offers a base frequency of 300 MHz and a maximum frequency of 1050 MHz.
However, the graphics card is integrated, meaning it is embedded into the CPU of the laptop. Hence, to perform graphics-related tasks, the GPU shares the system memory with the CPU.
Due to this, the Lenovo 910 Yoga might not be able to perform graphics-demanding tasks like video editing effectively. Also, due to its integrated GPU, this laptop won’t be able to smoothly run title AAA games.
However, the laptop should be able to handle a few outdated games. For instance, while playing Farming Simulator 17 (2016), the Lenovo 910 Yoga delivered an impressive frame rate of 61.1 fps.
As a way to further verify the graphics performance of this laptop, I will now be discussing its 3DMark 11 test result. 3DMark 11 is an app-based GPU test that evaluates the 2D and 3D rendering abilities of a computer.
Similarly, a high score on this test implies a good graphics performance. Hence, based on the test results, the Lenovo 910 Yoga scored 1623 points, which is quite impressive for a laptop with an integrated GPU.
As a matter of fact, this Lenovo laptop outperformed all the laptops in its category. For example, the HP Spectre x360 13 w023d, which also uses an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU, scored 1560 points.
Therefore, I will rate the Lenovo 910 Yoga an eight out of ten in this graphics review section.
Lenovo 910 Yoga Battery Life and Performance Review
The Lenovo 910 Yoga comes with a 4-cell 78 WHr Li-Polymer battery. Lenovo claims that with this battery, the laptop should last up to 10 hours.
To verify Lenovo’s claim, I will now highlight the Lenovo 910 Yoga’s result on a battery rundown test. Moreover, this battery rundown test involves repeatedly surfing the web over a WIFI connection until the laptop’s battery dies.
Thus, at the end of this test, the Lenovo 910 Yoga delivered a battery life of 10 hours and 44 minutes. Impressively, this laptop’s battery life exceeded Lenovo’s initial claim of 10 hours.
In fact, the laptop has a longer battery life compared to most of its closest competitors. For example, on the same battery rundown test, the HP Spectre x360 13 w023dx delivered a battery life of 9 hours and 18 minutes.
Therefore, to end this battery review section, I will rate the Lenovo 910 Yoga a nine out of ten.
