Here are the things I love about the Yoga 9i after upgrading from Lenovo's Flex 5

This Lenovo Yoga 9i laptop is nothing short of stunning, both inside and out. My daily laptop was Lenovo's Flex 5 until I purchased this stunning device a month ago. Having used the Flex 5 for several years, I constantly raved about its amazingness to family and friends, which only emphasizes the Yoga 9i's brilliance. 

Yoga 9i and Flex 5 are both 2-in-1 convertibles, meaning their rotating, 360-degree hinges allow them to function as both clamshell laptops and tablets. The two laptops are virtually indistinguishable from each other.

There is a considerable price difference between the Yoga 9i and Flex 5. This means a newer processor, more RAM, and more storage by default. Those changed specs are indeed certainly nice, but they don't make the Yoga 9i a transforming machine.

The Yoga 9i’s 4K OLED display is gorgeous

As of right now, I see a collection of images that came with the Yoga 9i instead of my own customized desktop wallpaper. I might just be lazy forever and never change these images because they are so vibrant and beautiful.

The crisp and vivid colors of my desktop background are always amazing to me every time I close out whatever I'm working on. With a 1080p resolution, I've been cheating myself on greatness for years.

I love the overall design and the keyboard

In my initial impressions, the Flex 5's keyboard was one of the most noticeable differences between it and the Yoga 9i. As a result of the Flex 5's speakers, the keyboard is a bit smaller and the keys are closer together. A rotating soundbar at the Yoga 9i's hinge allows the keyboard to be stretched out more. 

The speakers sound awesome, especially for a laptop

Music sounds awful on every laptop I've ever used. Dolby Atmos speakers are available on laptops, but the sound quality is poor. Thankfully, the Yoga 9i does not suffer from this problem - and I am very pleased with it. 

A wireless and Bluetooth update is included in Lenovo's Yoga 9i

New smartphone models, laptops, and other techy devices are usually equipped with the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology. According to current standards, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 are the most recent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth variants.

The Yoga 9i from Lenovo supports both Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6. Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2 are the only capabilities on my old Lenovo Flex 5. 

The 1080p webcam stands out in a world of 720p webcams

In my previous Flex 5 laptop, the webcam had a resolution of 720p. While 1080p is an affordable, viable option, most external webcams only support 720p, even though most of them max out at 720p. 

Bonus: You get 3 months of Xbox Game Pass for free

I received three months of Xbox Game Pass free when I purchased my new Lenovo Yoga 9i laptop. Because I have so many video games in my backlog, I've been putting off trying Xbox Game Pass. Nevertheless, it's a no-brainer when it's free. Does that make sense?
