We got an opportunity to check out the YOGA 900 at the press meet, and below are our first impressions and views on the same.
The design looks good and its definitely light weight in hand. The convertible laptop can be used in 4 modes which is pretty decent and useful. The laptop is easily carry-able and useful for the consumers who travel a lot and also useful for home use. The display is crisp and clear, we tested playing an online video and are pretty much impressed with the display quality. However, we felt the touch sensitiveness of the devices is average and we had to tap hard to operate any functionality on the screen, we are not sure if there are any settings available to improve the sensitiveness, only we could be able to tell that if we get an opportunity to do extensive review of the device. Keyboard is pretty good and gives real good response to the input. The downside of this laptop is, we cannot upgrade the RAM or any hardware and one has to wait for the next version if they want to upgrade their hardware. About the pricing, we cannot really comment whether it too steep or less at this point without analyzing the device completely.
