It was 10 years ago at CES when Lenovo debuted its iconic 360-degree flexible hinge design on the world’s first multi-mode Yoga 2-in-1 laptop that redefined the industry. Designed for versatility and portability as users flip and fold from work to play, the sophisticated style of Lenovo Yoga continues to delight. Now a decade later, the Yoga spans and stretches across form factors, bringing bold innovation and refined craftsmanship to consumers in a ‘work/learn/play-from-anywhere’ world.
The world leader in PCs, Lenovo unveiled its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops with its new 14-inch flagship convertible laptop the Lenovo Yoga 9i, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 made with recycled materials.
Work and Play While Doing Your Part for the Planet – Yoga 6
Intuitive design, technology and fashion are all changing, and in some cases starting to merge together and in case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a lot of talk about the environment right now. And in many ways, Lenovo is ahead of the curve with the new Yoga 6 (13”, 7) convertible laptop that was inspired by all the ways we make choices in our daily lives that affect the environment.
Living more sustainably can start with simply choosing a 2-in-1 laptop in Dark Teal hue made with recycled materials, including a cover made from recycled aluminum, or a fabric-wrapped cover option made with 50 percent recycled plastics and treated with a stain-resistant finish for resilience. Just think, that plastic bottle in the recycling bin today could be used to help make two fabric covers tomorrow. Thirty percent of recycled plastics were used in the power adapter. The Yoga 6 is also free of mercury, arsenic, and brominated flame retardant (BFR) free, and comes ENERGY STAR certified and EPEAT Silver certified for meeting energy saving and environmental standards.
Nearly 25 percent of Yoga 6’s battery cells use post-consumption plastic; even the laptop’s packaging is the “greenest” we’ve ever offered on Yoga by sourcing sustainable paper packaging from responsibly managed and FSC certified forests. Likewise, 90 percent of the protective cushion inside the box was made from recycled plastic. Besides being more eco-friendly, this lightweight convertible is powerful with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U processor and integrated AMD Radeon graphics delivering ultra-fast performance via up to 8 powerful cores, good value with sleek Windows 11 user experience, and a hyper-efficient battery life plus Rapid Charge Boost.8
Designed for portability and premium entertainment from nearly anywhere, Yoga 6 offers a 13-inch Full HD 16:10 ratio touchscreen display for crisp picture quality and Dolby Vision, and two front-facing speakers and Dolby Atmos for an incredible sound experience. Plus, you’ll get more I/O ports over the previous generation and the optional pen comes bundled in select markets.
