Say you wanted to build the perfect Windows laptop: what would you include? You might start with the latest-generation Intel processors, put in a big 4K touchscreen and make it foldable all the way around with a really nice hinge, and finish it off with high-end materials and build quality. Oh, and don’t forget a big battery, nice keyboard, and modern USB Type-C ports with one USB-A port for your sanity. Heck, throw a fingerprint sensor in there just for good measure. Make it premium but don’t charge toomuch.
That’s exactly what Lenovo is striving for with the new Yoga 910. It’s one of a few laptops vying to be named the Best Default Windows Laptop For Everybody — alongside HP’s Spectre x360, Acer’s Spin 7, and the venerable Dell XPS 13. Like those laptops, it’s getting a bonus second look from people who are disappointed by the new MacBook Pros.
The Yoga 910 belongs in that group because it has all the pieces of a great laptop. Which makes it all the more disappointing that the final product is slightly less than the sum of those parts.
