Lenovo’s new Yoga 920 is a gorgeous piece of tech. It combines excellent build quality, awesome design, fantastic battery life, hybrid ultrabook functionality – all of that packed into one package.

The Yoga 920 comes packed with a 13.9-inch 4K multitouch display that offers a resolution of 3840-by-2160 pixels.  resolution boasts impressive color and clarity. Under the hood, the Yoga 920 is powered by an Intel Core i7-8550U processor running at 1.99-GHz.

You also get 8GB RAM that will smoothly run your games and photo- and video-editing applications. It will also make multi-tasking a walk in the park. The Yoga 920 also comes with 512GB of SSD storage.

The Yoga 920 also comes with something that many laptops don’t: an active pen stylus. The stylus lets you use the laptop as an illustration tablet. It’s a battery-powered stylus and offers 4096 pressure levels, on-par with some pro-grade graphics tablets.
