Battle of the Yogas: ThinkPad X1 Yoga (2nd gen) VS. Yoga 910

Q: Battle of the Yogas: ThinkPad X1 Yoga (2nd gen) VS. Yoga 910

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.



The ThinkPad feels more substantial in the hands, with less display flex and keyboard flex than the Yoga 910. In fact, the keyboard for the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is embedded into the case, whereas the Yoga 910?s keyboard is a separate part.



Both the X1 Yoga and the Yoga 910 can bend 360 degrees to flip from a laptop into a tablet. However, there?s something really cool with the X1 Yoga?s hinge mechanism that the Yoga 910 doesn?t have ? the ability for the keyboard to go back inside the machine when it?s outside of laptop mode. The hinge mechanism of the ThinkPad is also stiffer than the Yoga?s hinge.



Overall, both machines seem very reliable, and while I give the build quality edge to the ThinkPad; the design is completely subjective. I personally like the ThinkPad look more, but I know some people would prefer the Yoga?s more colorful look.

Ports
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga definitely wins in this department, with 2 USB C ports, 3 USB ports, an HDMI port, a mini-ethernet port (albeit the full-sized adapter wasn?t included with mine), and a headphone jack. The Yoga 910 falls a bit short in this area, with only 2 USB C ports, a headphone jack, and one full-sized USB port. There?s also a Kensington lock on the X1 Yoga that?s not present on the Yoga.




Display

I have the FHD model of the X1 Yoga and the UHD model of the Yoga 910, so it?s obvious that the Yoga 910?s display has better clarity and detail. However, I compared my friend?s Yoga 920 with a FHD display to the FHD display of the X1 Yoga, and the colors on the Yoga is way more vibrant has more contrast than the ThinkPad?s display. I should also note that the 3rd gen X1 Yoga will have a Dolby HDR verified display, but I haven?t seen it in real life to compare it to the 2nd gen which I currently have.



If you?re a video editor or photo editor, I would recommend the Yoga over the ThinkPad.

Speakers?
Just physically, the speaker size of the Yoga 910 is substantially bigger than the ThinkPad X1 Yoga?s. That size difference unequivocally leads to a way better audio experience with the Yoga 910. There?s less distortion when playing music at high volumes, and more bass with the Yoga 910 than the X1 Yoga.



The speakers on the Yoga 910 are tuned by JBL, and software on the Yoga allows you to change the audio profile to whatever you like. No such customization is available on the X1 Yoga, unfortunately.
Take a listen for yourself. Both laptops are set at 80% volume, with the music profile on the Yoga 910:




Keyboard
The ThinkPad keyboard has spoiled me?. Typing on the X1 Yoga is an absolute godsend. The Yoga 910?s keyboard isn?t bad at all, but it?s no ThinkPad. The main differences are that the ThinkPad has way more key travel and tactile feedback than the Yoga. The Yoga feels really clicky, and the short key travel distance leads me to more typing errors than on the ThinkPad. It?s really hard to describe on paper or even with a video, so I highly urge you to try out a ThinkPad for yourself at your local computer store.


I consistently score a high word per minute count on the ThinkPad X1 Yoga over the Yoga 910, and I?m currently typing this review on the ThinkPad.




If you type a lot on your laptop, then you definitely want to go with the ThinkPad.

Trackpad
The trackpad on the Yoga 910 seems more responsive than the one on the ThinkPad, and that?s mainly because the ThinkPad?s trackpad has more travel distance. On the other hand, the trackpad on the ThinkPad is more comfortable to use since it?s a smoother surface. I can?t really declare a winner on the trackpad, but I should also note that I almost never use the trackpad on the ThinkPad because of the TrackPoint.



Yes, the ThinkPad line is one of the only laptops left with the nibble in the middle of the keyboard, but I still love using it. It?s more convenient for me because I can type and move the cursor, all with my hands in the same position. Using a trackpad, you would have to move your hands down to the trackpad to move the cursor, and I absolutely love not having to do that with the ThinkPad. The TrackPoint is very responsive and accurate, but I had to change the settings before using because the default settings were to fast to my liking.

Battery Life
I have the i7 UHD model of the Yoga 910 and the i5 FHD model of the X1 Yoga, so the X1 Yoga?s battery lasts a whole lot longer, and that?s a bit expected. What?s not expected is that even though the Yoga 910 sports a 25% larger battery than the X1 Yoga, the estimated battery life for both laptops are really similar. Lenovo says that both machines have a battery life up to 15 hours, and LaptopMag?s battery tests show very similar results for similar spec?d machines.



So I would say that you could expect more battery life on the Yoga 910, albeit not a whole lot more.

Charging Time
Since the X1 Yoga has a smaller battery and is bundled with a 65W fast charger in the box, it?s able to charge from 0 to 80% in just one hour, which is pretty impressive. I can attest to this, and with my testing, the X1 Yoga consistently charges faster than the Yoga 910. It?s important to note that the Yoga 910 only includes a 45W charge in the box, and while you can use the 65W charge from the X1 Yoga to charge the Yoga 910, it?s still not as fast as a rate since the X1 Yoga has a smaller battery to juice up.


Fan & Cooling
The Yoga 910 has two fans which exhaust and intake air all through the hinges. While it?s a very elegant solution, I don?t think it?s as effective as the single fan that has one intake vent and exhaust vent. The ThinkPad is usually quieter than the Yoga 910 while doing the same exact things, which strains the battery less. It?s also cooler to the touch than the Yoga 910.


Odds and Ends
While this isn?t a really major thing, I should also mention that the fingerprint sensor on the Yoga 910 is slightly faster than the X1 Yoga, even though the X1 Yoga has a slightly larger sensor.



Also, the X1 Yoga has an included pen which is held in a slot inside the laptop. I use the pen regularly, and I love the fact that there?s a slot for it inside the laptop, which makes it much harder to lose. The Yoga 910 doesn?t come with an included pen, but the Yoga 920 does, and it is more accurate and pressure sensitive than the X1 Yoga. However, the pen for the Yoga 920 doesn?t have a designated slot inside the laptop, meaning you?ll have to remember to bring it with you wherever you go, which can be quite a burden.


I should also note that there?s a WWAN option for the X1 Yoga, whereas there is no such option for the Yoga 920.

Conclusions
I feel that the Lenovo?s Yoga lineup suits content creators or consumers. The better speakers and display are a huge contributing factor to this, and the design of the Yoga would most likely fit those in this category.



The ThinkPad X1 Yoga, on the other hand, is great for those who want a classic business look and type a lot. The ThinkPad X1 Yoga has become my typing companion, and I love typing essays or documents on it.

Disclaimer: I received the Yoga 920 as a review loaner unit from Lenovo. All opinions are my own, nobody is paying for my review, and no one is reviewing this content before it's posted. 

                                                                     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

I have two staff members with different Yoga models, but with the same pen issue. Say, for instance, OneNote is open. The pen doesn't draw or write, but it can select and still be recognized. When I try using an old stylus from an HP Elitebook, it works TOTALLY fine - even the button on the pen functions properly. This suddenly started after months of the Lenovo pens working fine. I thought maybe it was a driver issue, but it can't be as the HP pen works.... I'm thinking it's the pen itself just getting worn down? It looks okay though but may be just a little loose... Any help / direction would be greatly appreciated!

Just curious, why is the new Thinkpad X1 Yoga I7, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, FHD about $1,000 more than the similarly equipped commercial Lenovo 910? 
 
Is it the ThinkPad brand name? The eraser nubbin? The 2 combined?
 
Just curious.
 
I've got a friend who needs a new laptop. She likes the touch/fold aspect of my 1st gen Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Do you all think she would be happy with the commercial Yoga 910? 
 
Any real reason to get the new plain FHD ThinkPad X1 Yoga instead of the similarly equipped commercial Yoga available at Best Buy besides spending an extra $1000 for the ThinkPad brand name?
 
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...

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?

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 posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

After that I installed all drivers including updates provided by Microsoft and Lenovo (using Lenovo system updater 5). But I can't use all FN keys (meaning the special functions like opening the windows 8 settings pane bar...) Also the orange led is lighted up on the F1 key (I guess this should indicate that my speakers are muted - but this led is always on). What should I do or what do I have to install in addition to use all FN special keys including the correct indication of the mute-LED?

Hello,I'm having trouble since I recieved my LENOVO ThinkPad Yoga 14 two months ago.It is on guarantee.I've noticed that the master fan keeps starting even if the computer is not working at full capacity. Sometimes, it starts right after windows as finished booting! And it's a brand new computer, Intel i7 CPU and 8GO of RAM!The fan keeps working then even if I'm only surfing on the internet or working on word.It's REALLY annoying. I feel like this is already an old computer by it's blowing. My old computer, a 5 years old Toshiba Satellite, doesn't blow so much.I've searched over the web and found that LENOVO had released a new UEFI Bios that was suposed to fix this problem. I've installed it and nothing changed! The fan kept on turning on for nothing else than a gmail home page.I've already asked about another problem on the ThinkPad Yoga 14. It's about a background noise on the built in speakers. Here's the link: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Background-noise-on-ThinkPad-Yoga-14-bu...I'm not having a good experience with this Yoga 14. I was looking for professional quality and it is not.Can someone tell me if they have the same problems?What LENOVO is going to do about it?Thanks.Ludovic.

Hi ludovicfd Can you please post the full model number of you machine and which Windows version are you using?. For example my TP Yoga 14 is "20DM008UUS" and I didn't experienced those issues.  I'm guessing that your machine fan is blowing too much and making huge noise. In my case I can feel more the hard drive noise than the fan, it is not like the HDD is "that loud", but when you are on a quiet enviroment you can feel it "scrattching". Do you want to try first updating any firmware / BIOS on your machine at the latest level ? After that another alternative will be to try to update the driver for the chipset and power. The basic thing for me is to try to update the drivers and firmware this way:- Windows Update- Lenovo System Update- Lenovo Companionand after that search manually for updates on the Lenovo Support site with your specific model number. Sorry, it is trial and error to see if a driver can fix your issue. If after updating the drivers, you think it is hardware issue you should try to contact Lenovo's Customer Support site Regards

Does anyone know if Lenovo is going to release the Thinkpad yoga 15 with an active pen or is this a dead dream at this point? My suppliers have no clue and even the touch only thinkpad yoga's are hard to get here in Canada.

Hello, I finally got my new Thinkpad Yoga S1, but there seem to be some issues with the NFC module. After startup, if I open the device manager it looks fine, but after a few minutes the "NFC proximity device" driver status changes to shows "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". Under Details > Problem Code it says "0000002B", and under Details > Problem Status "The Request is not supported/C00000BB". In the System Event Log I am also getting a few "BcmNfcIc driver has failed initializing NFC device." errors at the time it fails. If I do a right-click > Disable and then right-click > Enable on the device, it works again for a few minutes, but then shows the same error again. I'm using Windows 8.1, fully updated with Windows update, and all drivers/BIOS updated using the Lenovo tool. The NFC driver is version 1.1.0.3130 from 17/12/2013. I also had an issue where the Lenovo QuickControl together with "Windows Driver Foundation - User-Mode Driver" background process took up 95% of the CPU time all the time, which I solved by deinstalling QuickControl. I'm thinking the two issues might be related, with the QuickControl trying to unsuccesfully poll the NFC device. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Jan

A:Thinkpad Yoga NFC issues

I found out that Windows 8.1 Update 1 has just been released. This seems to have fixed the problem. After the update I had an error about the Lenovo PM Device, saying that it had corrup registry information. Deleting and re-detecting the PM device fixed the problem, and now everything appears to be working.
