Yoga 910 vs Yoga 900: In-depth comparision

Q: Yoga 910 vs Yoga 900: In-depth comparision

New year, new Yogas. How does Lenovo?s Yoga 910 stack up against last year?s Yoga 900? Let?s find out.Hardware & Design The Yoga 910 looks very similar to the Yoga 900. They both have the same dimensions, which means that my sleeve for the Yoga 900 fits the Yoga 910 perfectly. The Yoga 910 is a bit heavier because of its all-metal unibody design. Last year?s Yoga 900 had a magnesium alloy casing, and a rubber-like material inside the chassis. With the Yoga 910, the entire chassis is metal. That gives it a more premium look and feel. Even though the hinges on the Yoga 900 and Yoga 910 look nearly identical, the Yoga 910?s hinges are much more sturdier than the Yoga 900?s. This means that there?s less wobble when typing on the keyboard or touching the screen. Take a look at the difference: There?s also the addition of a fingerprint reader, which is always great to have. It?s quick and responsive, and always recognized my fingerprint. PortsThis year?s Yoga 910 is focused mainly on USB C. There are two USB C ports, one USB A port, and a headphone/microphone jack combo. Last year?s Yoga 900 had two USB A ports, one USB C, SD card reader, and mini-HDMI. Because of the move to USB C, you?ll need a USB C to SD card reader or USB C to HDMI adapter if you?re looking for those functionalities. DisplayThe Yoga 910?s display is larger, crispier, and brighter than last year?s display. Even though both laptops have the same dimensions, the Yoga 910 sports a display almost an inch larger because of the smaller bezels. The display resolution is also higher, this time at 3840 x 2160; up from the 3200 x 1800 on the Yoga 900. These things are noticeable, especially when viewing them side by side. I also noticed that the Yoga 910?s display has a warmer hue compared to the Yoga 900?s cooler hue, and the Yoga 910 gets a tad bit brighter. Keyboard & TrackpadThe keyboard is more clicky, with more tactile feedback. You?ll also notice that that Lenovo took out the last row of ?home, end, PgUp, PgDown? buttons, and opted with making every key a little bit larger. There?s also full sized arrow keys, and a larger left shift key. The right shift key is still a tad bit small, but you can get used to that in a few days of use. The trackpad on the Yoga 910 is about 30% larger than the one on the Yoga 900, but that?s not all. This year?s Yoga 910 has a Microsoft Precision Trackpad, which uses Microsoft?s own drivers instead of a driver from your typical Synaptics. This not only adds new gestures, but also results in a drastic improvement in general trackpad usage, scrolling, and zooming. Pinch to zoom and two finger scrolling on the Yoga 900 is a bit glitchy at times, but on the Yoga 910, it?s extremely smooth, as if you were using a touchscreen. Performance There?s no huge boost in performance between the Yoga 900 and Yoga 910 that I noticed. Benchmarks show the Yoga 910 is ahead of the Yoga 900 in processing power and storage speeds, but it isn?t something very noticeable in regular, general usage. That boost in storage speed does show in boot-up times, as the Yoga 910 only took 5 seconds from pushing the power button to loading the lock screen. Battery Life From 48Wh to 78Wh. It?s a significant improvement, especially since there?s a full HD model now. Lenovo claims up to 15.5 hours with the FHD model and up to 10.5 hours with the UHD model. I routinely got 8-9 hours of general usage, and always ended my day with about 30% battery. This is a pretty significant improvement over the Yoga 900, where I noticed that I would be out of battery at the end of the day. If you?re looking for some of the best battery life in the ultrabook market, the FHD model is the one for you. Audio There?s no huge improvement in audio, but it sounds decent, just like last years Yoga 900. The Dolby app is again pre-installed, and there are various modes to choice between. The speakers automatically adjust when you change the laptop?s modes (laptop, tent, stand, tablet mode). Here?s a demo of the speakers on the Yoga 910: Conclusion Lenovo made huge improvements from the Yoga 900 to the Yoga 910, fixing essential every flaw of last year?s model. This year?s model has a more premium all-metal design, much improved trackpad, better keyboard, and a much larger battery. It?s definitely the better machine, but last year?s Yoga 900 is no slouch either. However, since Yoga 900 pricing is still in the same ballpark as the 910, the newer hardware is definitely the better buy. Click here to learn more about the Yoga 910.

                                                                     Left: Yoga 920 in Bronze. Right: Yoga 910 in Silver
 
On the surface, both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 look nearly identical, but in my testing, I prefer one over the other. Let's dig deeper to see the differences between the two!To get this out of the way, both machines have 1TB PCIe storage, 16GB memory, and the Yoga 910 has the 7th gen i7-7550U processor, and the Yoga 920 has the 8th gen i7-8550U processor. 
 
Hardware & Design
Both the Yoga 910 and Yoga 920 are built out of aluminum, which gives them a high quality feel to them.  Both laptops have the keyboard integrated into the chassis, which means less keyboard flex. One thing that I find better in the Yoga 920 is the fact that it's all smooth edges around.  The Yoga 910 has pretty sharp edges which means you could scratch your surface or yourself.  The sharp edges of the Yoga 910 was a common complaint, and I'm glad they rectified it. 
 
 
The Yoga 920 also has a little slit on the display lid that makes it much easier to open the lap... Read more

Disclosure: Lenovo Yoga 910 as part of the Lenovo INsiders program. All opinions are my own. The Yoga 910 refines essentially every flaw on last year's Yoga 900; with a drastically better keyboard and trackpad, larger display, smaller bezels, and much better battery life. Even though the Yoga 910 is 13.9" (almost an inch larger), it is the same exact size as the Yoga 900, meaning the sleeve for my Yoga 900 fits the Yoga 910 perfectly.  Design- Just like last year's Yoga 900; the Yoga 910 has the same beautiful watchband hinge. The Yoga 910's hinge is actually much sturdier than the Yoga 900's hinge; which means that moving the display has much less wobble. This year though, the entire machine is made of metal. The sides are made of shiny, chrome metal, and the inside is covered with the all-metal unibody design. Resting my arms on the metal chassis feels great, since it's cool to the touch. Don't worry about the metal scratching; there's no scratches during the time I used it, and it's been carried in a backpack with a laptop slot. Also, the fingerprint sensor is super fast and responsive, awesome add-on.  Performance- It's got the Intel Core i7-7500U processor, up to 16GB RAM and up to 1TB PCIe storage. It's as top of the line as any ultrabook this range gets. It zips through whatever I throw at it. I edited multiple videos on it, and noticed no glitching or stuttering.

Hello All, I have an issue with my YOGA 700 laptop when logged in multiple accounts simultaneously. Whenever an account is left logged on and the user is switched as opposed to logging off, the cpu usage ramps up very high with several RUNDLL32 processes being the culprit. I have checked the RUNDLL32 processes with Process Explorer and the command line are as follows:C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\EnableAutoRotation.dll,RunCustomMonitor The directory is as follows: C:\ProgramData\LenovoTransition\Server\x64\ The only solution I have found is restarting the laptop. The problems comes back when again more than one user is logged in. Also, the rundll32 processes only run high cpu on one account at a time and there doesn't seem to be a preference for a specific account, all of them are plagued one at a time with the problem. Disabling the Yoga Mode Control service is a fix but that breaks the mode control which is essential in this laptop. I have tried installing all the available software on the Software page foor the YOGA 700. The rundll32 processes drain the battery very fast and I can't always log off other users when they have apps open!  I have posted a screenshot of process explorer showing 2 rundll32.exe processes using 25% cpu usage each. However, sometimes up to 4 rundll32.exe processes open up and they use combined 100% cpu usage, which makes the laptop run very hot and slow. In t... Read more

Hello Dws520Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Was this the creators update?
If so, have a look on the following post, this should show if your device has been tested with the update yet:

From what I can see, your unit does not seems to have made the list, which leads me to believe that this will be the cause of the issue, I would recommend that you revert back to the previous version of Windows, and observe if the fault still occurs or not.
 
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.==================================================================================Did someone help you today? Thank them with a Kudo! If you find a post helpful and it answers your question, please mark it as an "Accepted Solution"!

Disclosure:  I received these laptops from Lenovo as part of their advocacy program, so huge thanks to the folks over at Lenovo. I don't receive compensation for my review, and as always, all opinions are my own.  
 
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga is first modern ThinkPad that I've ever owned.  I?ve been using Lenovo?s Ideapad lineup for a very long time, and while I?ve used ThinkPads in the past, the X1 Yoga will be my first personal ThinkPad that I own.  So how does it stack up to the Yoga 910?  Let?s find out! I have the i7 UHD model of the Yoga 910 and the i5 FHD model of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga.  I tried out the latest Yoga 920, but I haven?t tried the latest X1 Yoga yet? hopefully, I will! 
 
Hardware & Design
Even though both laptops carry ?yoga? in their name, the hardware behind them is vastly different.  The ThinkPad X1 Yoga has the classic ThinkPad black design, which is made of a carbon-fiber hybrid for the top cover and a magnesium-PPS hybrid for the bottom cover.  The Yoga 910 has a similar design from the Lenovo?s Yoga lineup, with an aluminum build throughout.  
 
 
 
The ThinkPad only comes in two colors: classic black and silver; whereas the Yoga has a whole suite of colors to choose from, such as silver, copper, bronze, and even a few exclusive designs, such as the Vibe designs for the Yoga 920 and the Star Wars themed designs for the Yoga 910.

Hello, we got 2x Try-and-Buy Lenovo Yoga Tablet Laptops (an X1 Yoga and a Yoga 260) to evaluate their suitability for our company, since we intend to upgrade several of our employees laptops. However, ever since we got the devices we noticed on both of them frequent issues with the display and waking from sleep. Very often the laptops won't wake up properly with the screen staying black. In those cases the display-backlight seems to turn on, and I assume the system is running somehow in the background. Putting the computer to sleep again (e.g. by closing the lid) makes the computer wake up properly on the second attempt. Different error in the same category is when a video is running and the laptop is connected to AC - plugging out the AC cord made the screen go black while the media content's sound kept playing. All drivers were updated to the newest version via Lenovo System Update 5.07.0029. Any ideas? I also tried to open a support ticket, but Lenovo wanted to send and install a new display (!). Apparently, that seems like a driver/software issue?! Best regards

I've owned 6 various ThinkPads since 2011 FWIW. I get it, they're cream of the crop. But I kinda got sticker shock when I just priced out a plain FHD (and we need nothing more) X1 Yoga. About  $2,800, wow!

A:Why is the ThinkPad X1 Yoga $1,000 more than a similar Yoga 910?

@Jelks, The biggest difference I see between the X1 Yoga (2nd) and the Yoga 910 is active pen support which seems to be missing from the 910. You could use a capacitive stylus, but expect fingertip resolution, not pinpoint, and no pressure-sensitivity. Fewer USB ports: no HDMI or MicroSD; no Thunderbolt. No TPM module, if you need to store encrypted creditials, e.g., for BitLocker. Not sure about battery life; they claim up to 9 hours of local video for the 910 vs. up to 15 of MobileMark for the X1. Not an apple-to-apple comparison. You're not going to get the (soon to be patched, at least for now) security hole that is Intel's vPro management tech. You may not get Windows 10 Pro, possibly just Home (but you could always give Microsoft the money to upgrade if you need BitLocker or Remote Access). You're not going to get all the "mil-spec" design and testing etc, but if it's a personal machine, you're probably going to avoid abusing it. As you suggest, the "wave" keyboard -- including the trackpoint "eraser nubbin" -- is definitely going to be more expensive on the ThinkPad than the plain Yoga keyboard. I used two generations of ThinkPads (T61p and W520), but about 3 years ago I switched to a Dell XPS 13. A year or so ago, I ordered a X1 Yoga 1st gen for my wife and she likes it very much, so I am pretty familiar with the design and capabilities. TLDR: I think most people would be happy with the 910 vs. X1 unless they want the active pen. Als...

Hello, I read that Yoga 920 was released at IFA last year. IFA this year is from 31 Aug to 5 Sept. Will a new version of Yoga 920 (perhaps Yoga 930?) be released?

Hello, besides the materials used to make the case, is there other differences?

A:What are the differences between Yoga 920 and Yoga 920 Glass 14"

Hi lenovotv,
 
Greetings.
 
Yoga 920 Glass is mainly with the fashionably designed gorilla glass as main difference. In details, it would be specific if you use a part number /MTM instead to compare to variants of machine (ex. 80Y8000UUS).
 
From the website, click view current models then check on the compare box. Take note that the default Yoga 920 without glass can be customize so you can also change specific part parameter. If you have a specific part number in mind then we can also match it with 80Y8000UUS Yoga 920 Glass.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how it goes for you.
 
Regards

 What are the differences, if any? Also, is there a Lenovo application that detects the installed drivers and prompts me to download newer versions if available? I can't seem to find anything similar to the Lenovo Updater that I had on my Y-50. Thanks

Good day.
 
The major differences I see, looking at: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/Lenovo_Yoga_900_13_inch are: the SK2 has Intel Iris HD 540 graphics, slightly different CPUs and PCIe SSDs.
 
Regarding driver updates, there's a feature in Lenovo Companion that assists with that.
 
Hope this helps clarify.
Regards.

So three weeks ago, I was working on my Yoga 3 14" and popped to get a drink, I came back and the screen was blank, I assumed it had gone to sleep, so hit a key to wake it up. Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I fe...

I love the Lenovo Yoga series notebook and is considering getting either Yoga 710 or Yoga 900. My question is:1. What is the new features or updates on Yoga 710 from the previous Yoga 700?2. From the specifications and price stated below, which one is more worthy and which is better in terms of what? Pros and Cons would be nice.3. I have seen some extreme reviews on both Yoga 710 and Yoga 900 regarding user's problem. Is there anything else I should know about these two models before consider buying it?4. I am especially concern about the graphic quality. In terms of specifications, Yoga 900 should be better from its QHD feature. However, I have seen reviews saying the Yoga 710 graphic is better than Yoga 900. What's the verdict on this?5. If I buy the model from Lenovo, will I be able to customize the specifications by myself- upgrades. Thank you in advance for your replies! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lenovo YOGA 710 Convertible Laptop, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 14" Full HD, BlackPrice: 799.95 Battery lifeUp to 8 hours Bluetooth Enabled Yes - 4.0 Brand Lenovo Camera (front-facing) 720p webcam DimensionsH1.73 x W32.2 x D22.3cm Graphics card Intel HD Graphics 520 Graphics card typeShared Hard drive256GB NGFF Hard DriveModel SSD or Flash Storage KeyboardBacklit Accutype keyboard Manufacturer Part...

HiI am used to T420, 450 laptops, and looking for Yoga with similar easy type keyboard (good key travel, less actuation force) and easy on eyes screen anti-glare/matte.  Looks like they don't make matte displays now. Is the keyboard on X1 yoga and its anti-glare comparable or should I get thinkpad yoga 460 (that is a pound+ heavier). Also how does a anti-glare screen protector compare with display already built with anti-glare. If the X1 yoga anti-glare is not sufficient, should I then add this 3rd party screen? Thanks

I am hhaving difficulty finding an acceptable scaling mix between resolution, system scaling, and edge scaling. At 1080p, 125%, 125%, os navigation is mostly fine, but edge text is way too large. At 1080p, 125%, 100%, edge text is way too small. At all combinations text is inflated (but crisp) in certain elements while fuzzy in others. What scaling combinations work best for you? I am considering returning this to Best Buy and upgrading to a Pro 4 / Book, or even a Mac. The scaling is ruining an otherwise great experience.

I have been an AMD guy for a long time so I might just be concerned about nothing. Here is my problem/question. I helped a friend buy a new pc and to be quite honest her pc runs a lot slower than mine. I have cleared off all the garbage processes and basically tweaked hers identical to mine, yet mine just smokes hers on performance and I am not sure why.

My pc main components are:
MSI K7T266 Pro2-a (Via KT266a chip set)
Athlon 1800 XP (2400 otw, fastest board will hold) runs at ~1.53
1g pc2100
Radeon 9200 (128) agp4x (fastest board will go)
XP Pro

Her pc main components are:
MB, I have no clue. It's a Compaq.
Celeron 2400 ~2.4
1g pc2700
Radeon 9200 (128) pci, friggin MB doesn't supoprt AGP!?!?! That was a big
WTF after I bought it and went to upgrade it.
XP Home
When we play Lineage ][ I run a little smoother, that I can accept. My gfx card is better and we have the same amount of ram for that pig of a game. The main thing is everything runs slower on her pc. Boot-up, launching firefox. Opening my computer. And it's a noticeable difference too. I feel like I have stepped into p75 days sometimes when I use her pc.

What gives? I looked for a free benchmarking program to see if the cpu was bad, but I had no luck finding one. I built my pc 3 years ago and we bought hers 9 months ago. She has me by almost a gig in processor, until my 2400 comes on Monday, lol.

BTW, as far as spyware etc... there is none. I run all the same progs on hers as mine and have pos... Read more

A:PC Comparision

Poor comparison.

The PCI video should not be compared to AGP, its much slower.

The Celeron is slower than a P4 chip as well, but the effect depends on the application. Some applications are almost the same speed, some not.

Overall I would expect the Celeron in that system to be slower, and its mostly the video thats the problem.

Let's say that I'm software developer.Currently I have quite old one, mobile workstation EliteBook 8540W. My company give ma choice to delect new laptops: HP 640 G2, core i5, 265 SSD, 8 GR RAM DDR 4Z Book 15 G2 i7, 256 GB SSD, 8 GB RAM. I know that the last one is high performance, and it is alway very easy to say it's better. But I would like have a look at performance comparison of these three laptops in different arreas.
