Last year, Lenovo greeted us with a gazillion laptop options that ranged from the cheapest entry-level you could get up to the highest-end model that was more than capable of replacing a powerful desktop. In fact, the company had a more impressive year than the competition as it offered the widest range of 16GB/1TB laptop configurations in the Philippines. So in 2021, what can Lenovo provide to the market that’s more relevant than ever?
Apparently, it’s about marrying unique style and ultra-fast responsiveness in a flexible yet lightweight package made not only for gamers but particularly for professionals — the creators, the entrepreneurs, or the business-centric people. With the help of the AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series Mobile Processors with Radeon™ Graphics, Lenovo combined the aforementioned features in the Lenovo Yoga 6.
At a PHP49,995 starting price, the Lenovo Yoga 6 joins the fray of ultraportable notebooks and gaming laptops. Considering the pandemic, the logistics challenges, and the off-the-charts demand for work-from-home setups in 2021, developing a laptop designed to bolster productivity, gaming, and content creation in an ultrathin premium body is a feat and will be popular to the new normal workforce. Speaking of its capabilities, what exactly are you getting when you purchase a Yoga 6? Well, let me start with that unique style.
How do you make a clamshell device look more than a piece of overused metal over time? You make the Yoga 6 thin and light, mix the metal body with soft-touch materials, and cover it up with a luxurious textile that’s both fire- and stain-resistant.
At 1.32kg and 17.1mm, the Yoga 6 is Lenovo’s first convertible to feature a unique hybrid design of metal and textile which can be found on the lid of the machine. While adding any type of cloth to any machine is usually a cause for concern, Lenovo made sure that you’re still using a durable and resilient laptop that can withstand any environment.
Like I’ve mentioned earlier, the Yoga 6 is a convertible laptop, which means it acts as a typical clamshell device while doubling as a tablet, entertainment display, or even a notebook or canvas for when you need to draw or jot notes while using Lenovo’s digital pen with up to 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. All thanks to the 360-degree hinge of this 2-in-1 laptop, you can use it in four different ways: laptop mode, tent mode, tablet mode, and stand mode.
Given we’re talking about a Lenovo device made to cater to a professional’s needs, the HD webcam comes equipped with a TrueBlock webcam privacy shutter and a built-in fingerprint reader for instant (and secure) login. Need to work efficiently at night? The chiclet keyboard provides two levels of adjustable backlighting.
We can’t talk about the build and design without mentioning the display, can we? The Lenovo Yoga 6 is sporting a 13.3″ FHD+ In-Plane Switching (IPS) display with touchscreen capability and an 88% active screen area to give you as much screen space as possible. And at 300 nits brightness, it’s enough to be used indoors and outdoors. But what’s a good display without good audio quality? Fortunately, Lenovo brought Dolby Atmos-certified front-facing stereo speakers for a much better audio experience.
Finally, we get to the most interesting feature of the Yoga 6, which is the AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series Mobile Processor with Radeon™ Graphics. At the core of the 2-in-1 device is the AMD Ryzen™ 4700U processor — an 8-core CPU capable of accelerating everything you need to do, from handling and managing multiple apps in the foreground to running heavy workloads such as video editing.
More cores mean more performance. With the highest number of cores available for ultrathin laptops, the AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series lets you do more, faster than ever before. Its revolutionary AMD 7nm “Zen 2” core architecture delivers an unprecedented increase in speed and performance for multitasking and heavy workloads in the newest generation of powerful ultrathin laptops. From app startup and web browsing to serious productivity and entertainment, everything is faster and more responsive.
If that’s not enough, the CPU is paired with AMD Radeon™ Graphics that offers up to 59% more performance than the previous generation GPU. Whether for working and studying or for streaming and creating content, the Yoga 6 has the guns to be ultra-fast in any kind of scenario through its AMD Ryzen™ 4700U processor.
The user experience is also made better by visiting Lenovo Q-Control, featuring Intelligent Thermal Solutions 4.0 that provides three AI-enhanced power profiles to extend battery life and boost performance.
The Lenovo Yoga 6 also packs a 60WHr battery that lets you enjoy up to 18 hours of battery life in certain conditions such as continuous video playback. While the battery isn’t ultra-fast to drain, the connection is indeed ultra-fast thanks to Wi-Fi 6. Adding the cherry on top is the combination of up to 16GB DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB SSD PCIe M.2 storage.
Worried about port selection? You don’t have to. With the Yoga 6, you have two USB-C ports for USB 3.2 Gen 1 and DisplayPort, with one of them supporting Power Delivery 3.0 for fast charging.
You also don’t have to worry about maintenance as the Yoga 6 automatically comes with the 3-Year Premium Care warranty service upon purchase. Premium Care delivers an enhanced user experience designed to help customers get the most out of their devices through offerings capable of optimizing system performance and increasing productivity. It includes nifty services such as a 24×7 direct hotline to Lenovo technicians, comprehensive hardware and software support, and a vital Annual PC Health Check to check on the status of your device after prolonged use.
To sum it up, the Lenovo Yoga 6 offers you a unique & versatile design, lightning-fast performance with an AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series Mobile Processor with Radeon™ Graphics, further improved by Lenovo Q-Control, and an entertainment display that transforms into a creative canvas. All that for a professional’s laptop that doesn’t cost too much.
