Haptic touchpad doesn't deliver
Lenovo is a big player in the convertible laptop sphere, and the Yoga 9i is its top dog. A sequel to the Yoga C940, the $1,299.99-and-up 14-inch Yoga 9i is a capable laptop in almost every area that matters, with a comfortable keyboard, respectable batte...

Lenovo has never let me down when it came to its premium Yoga 9 series, going all the way back to the Yoga 920, the first one that I reviewed. But I have to say, in a world where these products have historically been some of the best, it's hard to recomme...
