Like many device manufacturers, Lenovo is responding to the post-pandemic world of hybrid lifestyles, where tech needs to be flexible enough to cover both productivity and entertainment use cases. 

To this end, the company has unveiled an innovative dual OLED-screen laptop, a powerful and elegant all-in-one (AIO) PC, and a cutting-edge Android tablet.

Let's take a look.

Lenovo says the Yoga Book 9i is "the world's first dual OLED-screen laptop", and the second screen is no subsidiary display: this device has two 13.3-inch 2.8K 16:10 aspect ratio HDR OLED screens. Equipped with a 360-degree hinge, it can do the usual clamshell, tent, presentation, tablet thing, using either a virtual keyboard/touchpad on one of the screens or a separate Bluetooth keyboard, which frees up both displays. 

Also: Can Lenovo's Yoga Book 9i finally make dual-screen laptops a thing?

But there's more: a folio stand caters for dual-screen operation in both portrait and landscape modes, providing much greater flexibility. There's pen support, so students, for example, could take notes on one screen while viewing an online class on the other. There's no crease to worry about, as on folding-screen laptops like the ThinkPad X1 Fold, and the hinge area is put to good use by incorporating a sound bar with four Bowers & Wilkins speakers.

The 32-inch Yoga AIO 9i Desktop is designed for creative users, and to that end offers powerful processors (up to 13th-generation Intel Core i9) and optional discrete (Nvidia GeForce) graphics, a 4K 16:9 aspect ratio IPS screen, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 2TB of storage. Fully specified up, this slim, elegant AIO should handle graphic design, photo, and video editing and gaming workloads comfortably. Most of the system components reside in the base, with two of the four speakers in the screen unit, which is supported by a metallic hinge that resembles nothing so much as a large paperclip. Usefully, the base also incorporates a wireless charging point.

As its name suggests, the Tab Extreme is a premium tablet, featuring a 14.5-inch OLED display with 3K resolution, DCI-P3 support and up to a 120Hz refresh rate. It runs Android 13, for which three OS upgrades and four years of security patches can be expected, on a powerful 8-core MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor. Eight JBL speakers (4 on each side in landscape mode) help to complete an impressive entertainment/productivity platform. A flexible keyboard stand allows for adjustable viewing angles in both landscape and portrait orientation, and the tablet has its own detachable landscape/portrait kickstand for use cases where the keyboard isn't required -- for example when using the Tab Extreme as a portable monitor via its USB-C port with DP-in support.
