Lenovo made a dual-screen laptop that’s actually good — Yoga Book 9i

we are here at Lenovo Suite with the Lenovo Yoga book 9i and I have not been this excited for a laptop in a really long time this is a dual screen foldable laptop there is a 13.3 inch screen on the top and a 13.3 inch screen on the bottom they are both OLED 2.8 K screens and then there's also a keyboard and a kickstand and a stylus and they all come included so it's not like Microsoft or you have to buy them separately so the yoga book 9i is shipping in April hitting shelves in June it's going to start around the two thousand dollar Mark and the really cool thing about it is that there are a ton of gestures that you can use to really optimize the two screens for whatever work that you're trying to use it for in terms of specs there are going to be three USB ports you can get up to 16 gigabytes of RAM and there's a 5 megapixel main camera for video conferencing what you can do if you're scrolling through a website such as is you can put your finger on it and flick it and throw it down there and if you want it back up there flick flick flick now if you want it to just to be really long and just scroll endlessly you can do a five finger tap and this is called waterfall mode look at that scroll that's fun now you can also detach this you can take it off the stand and you can fold it into just being a regular 13-inch laptop so this would be good if you're you know at a cafe or on a plane and you need just like a smaller device now you're going to use eight fingers down here and that makes a keyboard up here and below that there's a little fake touch pad that you can use to navigate and the coolest thing is there are these two buttons here and these actually click like I'm clicking and it really feels like I'm clicking an actual button I'm really impressed with the haptic feedback on these they really it really feels like a real touchpad now the touchpad is not delineated but the buttons do make it pretty clear where the touchpad is so I'm not worried about not knowing where I'm going to click or clicking in the wrong place which is sometimes an issue you can have with non-delineated touch pads especially if you're clicking with your non-dominant hand now if I want to type I can type up here there's haptic feedback on this keyboard which is very cool it is a little weird to type on a totally flat surface but I think this is something you get used to over time and if you don't like that keyboard you can pop the magnetic keyboard right onto there touchpad remains oh and you can just type as normal now if you want to keep the keyboard here but you also want to do some navigation on the bottom half you can use eight fingers to drag it down and then there's some cool stuff up here that pops up so we have a weather app here you can check the weather and here there are a bunch of things so there's one window where you can see your CPU and GPU and RAM usage and that can be particularly useful if you're playing a game or if you're doing some really intensive tests and you want to keep an eye on how much strain you're putting on your Hardware if you scroll through here there's news there's a calculator there's Outlook schedule so this is just neat if you don't think you're gonna be using a touchpad a ton because here you don't have touchpad access but you want to get rid of that eight fingers get rid of that if you get rid of this keyboard and put this back up here you can also navigate with the stylus so the stylus lives in this little pocket back here it's very secured I'm not worried about it falling out or anything but if I tug it out I can use this scroll and that's pretty smooth it's very comfortable so here we have Smart notes you can write with this draw with it three smooth comfortable stroke and the coolest thing is if you want to use it this way but you don't want to use a stylus you want to use a touch pad they have this software here called The Yoga book 9 user Center and here they have all those different dual screen stuff where you can play with the virtual keyboard the widget bar and this is my favorite part virtual touchpad if you set that up if I tap with three fingers here I have touch pad I can use this to navigate I can click and drag these buttons here have haptic feedback and they do feel scarily like real buns it's very cool and I can put this touchpad anywhere I want to put up there I can put it over here I can put it down here and if I want to use it this way I can use it flat down here so this is running Windows 11 but it's actually not a special version of Windows 11 that's made for dual screen devices or anything of that sort it's just regular Windows 11 but Lenovo has built all these shortcuts in to make it easier to use the two screens together so that's the yoga book 9i thank you guys so much for watching let me know in the comments if you're excited for this device do you think there are even more shortcuts that you would like to see added how do you think you would use this I'm really excited to do a full review for more news coming out of CES 2023 keep an eye on our YouTube channel and check out where we'll have all kinds of other announcements from Lenovo from Dell from Acer from every company out here
