Lenovo has added another feather to its hat with the Yoga Duet 7i. It is designed to rival the Surface Pro products from Microsoft that it manages to do so without a hiccup, at least on paper. It looks like the company has packed in everything it could inside one tablet, plus, there’s a lot to configure too. Things like 4G LTE and stereo speakers are a bonus on a machine that feels complete with a laptop-class processor and memory configurations.

Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i: The Basics

When a Lenovo tablet is a part of the Yoga series, you instantly know that it’d be convertible. This Yoga Duet 7i has got a kickstand, much like the famed Surface lineup, along with a premium design. The Lenovo offering uses a massive 13-inch 2K screen in the more conventional 16:10 aspect ratio that also supports Dolby Vision. As for manageability, the tablet alone weighs under 800 grams, while the Folio Case takes the total to a little under 1.16Kg. This backlit keyboard attachment isn’t flimsy, but is rather firm and can even be used when detached from the tablet portion.

This Yoga machine is a full-fledged laptop equivalent and comes powered by Intel Core processors. You can configure it with up to 10th-gen Core i7 along with up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM. The SSD storage options start at 128GB and go all the way up to 1TB. On the software front, the tablet comes preloaded with either Windows 10 Home or Pro, which you can presumably pick depending on your needs. Lenovo will ship this slate with a Digital Pen or an E-Color Pen, though only in a few unspecified markets, while in the rest of the regions, these accessories will be sold separately.

The port situation on the Yoga Duet 7i is quite rich; you get three USB-C ports along with an SD card reader and a headphone jack. You can use these USB ports to charge the tablet, which Lenovo claims can last for up to 12.3 hours. Being a premium offering, the tablet supports the Windows Hello unlocking feature using the front-facing IR cameras. If you like getting some work done while on the go, then you can optionally go for the LTE-enabled variant. You can pick the tablet in two color options — Slate Gray and Orchid.

Pricing & Availability

As previously mentioned, the Yoga Duet 7i is a high-end tablet from Lenovo, and its pricing matches that stature. It has a starting price of €1199 (~$1330), but that figure includes the Folio Case in all markets and the two stylus options in a few. Prices will likely go higher as you move towards the more premium configurations with better specs.

The company will start rolling it out starting this month, June 2020, though we don’t know exactly when it’ll reach your particular market. Hopefully, that won’t take long, and we’ll also get to see the pricing of all the styli Lenovo has come out with.

Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i Alternatives

Perhaps the best tablet that can replace the Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i is the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 (review), which offers a similar package, but comparatively costs a little less. Though, with a Surface, you need to buy the accessories separately, which somewhat negates any price difference. For enthusiasts with some money to spare, go for the Surface Pro X (review), which offers much more premium and sleek build, but it’s not as usable as the standard Surface Pro due to its hardware.

Those on the iOS side have the iPad Pro 2020 (review) as an excellent option. You can now pair with an equally premium keyboard attachment, which holds the tablet in air, a little closer to you, and at the same time, allowing you to set it at any comfortable viewing angle. The most high-end mainstream tablet with Android is the Galaxy Tab S6 (review), which continues being a great product that is capable of doing a lot. And if you like the Tab S6 but don’t want to spend as much, then the new Tab S6 Lite should be a great fit.

Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i

Setting foot in the premium tablet category, Lenovo has made sure that its Yoga Duet 7i embodies the 'Yoga' branding with convertible design. The kickstand is a fantastic design choice that expands the scope of a computer, which could otherwise only be used for a single purpose. On top of all that, Lenovo bundles its major accessories, like the keyboard, inside the package, so you need not buy them separately. But all that comes at a premium price, which the company seems to be embracing.
