“Lenovo aims to deliver our vision, Smarter Technology for All, through designs that perfectly meet consumer needs.

The leather cover also comes optional on the 14” Yoga 9i convertible. A first on Lenovo consumer laptops, devices undergo a special 20-step hand-tooled assembly process that retains the original appearance — natural imperfections included — of the genuine European leather used, making each product truly one of a kind.
Complementing the premium leather cover in the Yoga 9 series are the water-resistant edge-to-edge Glass Palm Rest, the fingerprint-resistant Smart Sensor Touchpad utilizing haptic technology to recreate the familiar feeling of a real click, Smart Sense Keyboard that auto-adjusts the white backlighting based on ambient light conditions, and more.
