Although, Lenovo has recently introduced its Yoga 900 convertible laptop, at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, the PC manufacturer introduced a new version of the device: the Yoga 900S. 

The new laptop looks similar to the Yoga 900, but the 900S is the lightest and thinnest convertible Windows 10 PC, you will want to buy in 2016, the main reason behind the new achievement is thanks to the latest Intel Core M processors.

Compared to its predecessor, the Lenovo Yoga 900S is a bit smaller. Instead of the traditional 13-inch display in the 900 model, the new 900S sports a 12.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS screen with stylus and 10-point multitouch support.

Side by side both devices look pretty much the same, but the Lenovo Yoga 900S is indeed a lot lighter, as the company was able to shave some of the weight to 2.2 pounds by using a slightly smaller screen size, Intel’s Core M processor, and carbon fiber material. The new device is only 12.8mm (0.5-inch) thick, which is a thinner than the Yoga 900 at 14.9mm.

Identical to the previous version, Lenovo is also including the watchband hinge to allow its signature 360-degree flipping. However, the PC maker is adding a few tweaks and offering a silver and gold color variants with the keyboard and hinge matching accordingly.
