CES 2016 is upon us, and Lenovo isn’t done announcing its new range of products yet. Lenovo has just announced the true successor to the slim and light Yoga 3 Pro: the Yoga 900S, which Lenovo claims to be the world’s thinnest convertible laptop. Just like its name suggests, the 900S is technically another variant of the Yoga 900, but with a few tricks up its sleeve.
For one, the Yoga 900S is even lighter and slimmer than the Yoga 900; the former weighs almost 1kg with a 12.7mm thin profile. In order to achieve this, Lenovo equipped the 900S with the latest Skylake-based Intel Core M processors, which eliminates the need of a fan for active cooling; this is what makes the 900S the true successor to the Yoga 3 Pro.
Other specifications of the Yoga 900S are pretty impressive as well, such as a 12.5-inch 2560 x 1440 QHD touchscreen display (the Yoga 900 has a 13.3-inch 3200 x 1800 QHD+ IPS display instead) with support for an active stylus, up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of PCIe SSD storage, as well as a claimed battery life of 10.5 hours. The 900S also features Lenovo’s signature watchband hinge.
Interestingly, the Lenovo Yoga 900S has been registered on SIRIM, suggesting that it could be launched in Malaysia soon. The 900S is set to debut in the US sometime in March 2016 starting from US$1,099, which comes up to about RM4,770.
