Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Has Two 13-inch OLED Screens

Lenovo’s latest laptops have two full-size screens instead of one. At CES 2023, the company announced the Yoga Book 9i, billed as “the first full-size dual-screen OLED laptop.” It’s reminiscent of the dual-screen foldable Surface Neo that Microsoft announced but didn’t manufacture (but bigger).

Each Yoga Book screen is a 13.3-inch, 2.8K screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio and supports Dolby Vision, which Lenovo calls “PureSight.” Powered by Intel’s 13th Gen Core i7-U15 processor, it features up to 16 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 512 GB or 1 TB of PCIe SSD Gen 4 storage.

But instead of using a single folding screen like Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold, the Yoga Book 9i uses two panels that fold together into a neat clamshell. This allows for many standard convertible 2-in-1 features such as tablet mode and tent mode. You can stack the screens or use them side by side. The device is 11.78 x 8.03 x 0.64 inches and weighs 3.04 pounds. Like some of Lenovo’s other Yoga flagships, it has a hinged 360-degree rotating soundbar.

Unlike the Neo, which was conceived like a tablet, the Lenovo comes with a folio stand that holds the screen at an angle, so it feels more like a laptop. You can also hold it so that the screens are one on the bottom and one on the top, like ). Please check if it is. It’s nice to see it built into the device, but I’m not sure it’s all that sophisticated if it is.

There’s also a detachable Bluetooth keyboard that can be used separately from the device or attached to the device to mimic a clamshell laptop, similar to a stylus. Windows 11’s window management and snapping tools should also help with dual screen layouts.

Lenovo emphasizes the Yoga Book’s ability to be used in the office or classroom. You can use the software to take notes or give presentations while looking at one screen and viewing the other. You can switch between using the two screens separately or by tapping with five fingers he merges them into one display. Connect accessories and other devices with three Thunderbolt 4 ports.
