Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7 (14-inch) Review: 12th Gen P Series Goes Sleek

At least here in the United States, we’re back at a point where people are going places again. For those who are on the road a lot, a laptop needs to be versatile for work and other tasks, fitting easily in a bag but also serving many purposes. The Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7, ($1,449.99 to start, $1,929.99 as tested) is sleek, slim and folds into a tablet or tent with a 2-in-1 design.

This latest Yoga has rounded, polished edges that are comfortable on the wrists, even if they look a bit like my 2019-era iPhone. And despite being just 0.6 inches thick, Lenovo has made room for both Thunderbolt 4 and classic USB Type-A ports.

It’s a premium package, marred only by the sheer amount of software packed onto it, which I expect more from budget notebooks, not premium portables. But with an all-aluminum design, Intel’s 12th Gen P-series processors and a bright OLED screen, the Yoga 9i stands tall as one of the best ultrabooks we’ve tested in recent memory. 

Design

The Yoga 9i is easily one of the most attractive Windows PCs I’ve seen in the past year. It eschews the blockier design that Apple has been bringing back, in exchange for a rounded profile, which I still think is clean and eye-catching. It reminds me a bit of my iPhone 11 Pro Max from 2019.
