Having a multi-monitor setup proposed by Mobile Pixels is cool and all but what if you want that same setup to go wherever you go? Well, that my friends, Lenovo has the solution and it ain’t no concept. Unveiled at CES last week is a pretty revolutionary laptop called Lenovo Yoga Book 9i.
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i is the world’s first full-sized dual-screen OLED laptop that, well, has two full-size touch screens. It combines two 60 Hz 13.3-inch PureSight OLED displays for a single cascade screen, or you can run different programs simultaneously on both screens. It not only bested the Geminos Stacked Screens for portability; it also bested it with the ability to use the screens side-by-side like a book.
You can use the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i like a regular laptop with one screen as the virtual keyboard and touchpad, or you can make use of both screens – in either landscape or portfolio orientation, with the included detachable Bluetooth keyboard and folio stand. Also included with the device is a stylus pen for taking notes and sketching.
The device is built on the Intel EVO platform, which means it satisfies Intel’s strict requirements including fast boot, fast charging, and long battery life. Under the hood, there is the 13th-generation Intel Core i7-U15 chip, Intel Iris Xe, 16 GB LPDDR5X memory, and 512 GB/1 TB PCIe SSD Gen4.
Other highlights include HDR and Dolby Vision support, Dolby Atmos support, Bowers & Wilkins speakers (2x 2W + 2x 1W), FHD IR+RGB webcam with privacy shutter, 3x USB Type-C full-function Thunderbolt 4 ports, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.1/5.2, and an 80 WHr battery optimized all-day performance. It will run on Windows 11 (Home or Pro).
The Lenovo Yoga Book 9i Dual-screen OLED Laptop will be available in June 2023 with a starting price of US$2,099.99.
