Lenovo has been updating their Yoga lineup for more than a few years now, with the 920 model being one of the more popular models in recent years. This refresh keeps the same body and watchband hinge, instead the updates are all hidden inside. The base model features a Kaby Lake R Core i7-8550U, 8 GB of DDR4-2400, a 256GB NVMe SSD and a 1080p display, these can be upgraded to 8 GB of RAM, a 1TB NVMe drive and a 4k display if you so choose. Regardless of the display you choose, the touchscreen has been developed by Wacom and offers 4096 levels of sensitivity which makes grabbing a stylus a very good idea, though including one would have been even better.
Take a look at Techgage's full review to see how the new Yoga 920 performs as well as more details about the included features.
"Lenovo’s Yoga series has long been respected for its notebooks’ ability to bend to your will, and the 920 (14) proves to be one of the best models the series has seen. With its incredibly sturdy design, sharp watchband hinge, super-thin frame, and beautiful aesthetics, the Yoga 920 is the ultralight 2-in-1 to consider."

Hardly seems any different to
Hardly seems any different to current model. Really struggling what’s been upgraded. However the thing that is need of a huge update is QC, some people have had to return 3 of these. Given the 4K model costs $3K in Australia, they are very poorly built.

Purchased my Yoga 920 in Jan, 2018 and it has not disappointed in any way. I opted for 16 Gb RAM, 1 TB SSD, 4k UHD display. (~$1800) direct from Lenovo. Performance is splendid. Boots to login screen in about 5 seconds. I used to use sleep mode with the Macbook Air – but the 920 boots so fast I opt to just do a complete shutdown.
The display is so crisp I wish my eyesight was better! 🙂
The form factor of the 920 is so similar to my old 13″ MacBook Air that I can use the slim MBA leather case with the 920. Outside dimensions for these two notebooks are strikingly (and visually) similar. And the extra screen size (13.9″ vs 13″) is a bonus.
I purchased an extra power adapter and a couple of usb-c multiport adapters with SD card support and for home and work needs to avoid having to commute with anything except the notebook itself.
My 920 has worked flawlessly. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a quality built, slim, ~3 pound notebook. The watchband hinge is so cool that folks can’t help but comment on it.
