    I NEVER WATCH CONTENT ON LAPTOP MODE EXEPT ON TOILET. WHEN IN BATH ITS KEYBOARD DOWN TO GET A GREAT ANGLE AND ALL OTHER INSTANCES WATCHING CONTENT IS IN TENT MODE. Personally its the reason i bought a two in one and without it i wouldnt bother. i have my first laptop and its a 9i yoga 2021 version. was gona get the updated one but hate yes hate there is no pen attched to laptop like the old one. if i was a proper artist then yes id go get a proper pen and sleave but to not have the basic pen in a hole in laptop is very disapointing and cost them a sale. a flash sale that is. i have the big i7 chip with 1 tb storeage and 16 gig ram with the black leather and it cost me 800 uk pounds new from lenova. so big wow.

    I would have to disagree with the hot take of the track point, I'd rather sacrifice the size of the track pad as a track pad can not be operated when the skin of the hand isn't exposed and there's no conductive surface making contact with the track pad, a track point though doesn't rely on conductivity, thus can be used with a glove.

    Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
    -John 14:6 (NKJV)

    ⁹ that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
    ¹⁰ For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    -Romans 10

    1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
    – 1 John

    Believe Jesus died to blot out your sins and proclaim He is your Lord and Saviour.
    Believe He rose again 3 days later in the flesh by God's hand.
    For by grace you are saved through faith.

    Confess and repent of all your sins in prayer in the name of Jesus.
    Forgive those who have harmed you (this will free you from anger) as God forgave you.
    Be baptised fully immersed in water and be baptised in the Holy Spirit (if possible).
    Live pure and stop sinning.
    If you sin unwillfully confess and repent for none of us are perfect except Jesus.

    Be obedient.
    Follow the spiritual laws: 
    Love you neighbour as yourself and love God with all your heart, soul and mind.

    Develop a relationship with God. Walk with him in the cool of the day.

    The last lenovo I even had in my life was the X1 yoga 3rd gen. This is a business series for which they offer 3 years warranty. But over the 3 years I had to replace motherboard 3 times, because 2 times in a row they replaced it with a faulty motherboard. 1st replacement had one the two 8GB ram chips failed (soldered) and the 2nd replacement had video output failed. Lenovo clearly doesn't have any quality control in their warranty department. The sad part of the story is when they replaced the MB 3rd time, it was finally in a working condition, but they managed to break the keyboard retraction mechanism (X1 3rd gen had that) and since the warranty ended few days after, they denied any responsobility and offered me a paid service – to fix what they broke.

    Tent mode comment: I would use it when/ if gaming, the cooling is so much better that way.
    Also I would use it if in tent mode the linux had better support. Linux and pen is terrible on convertible devices. I wish it was better so that people could use it more flexibly.

    Love the trackpoint and dedicated mouse buttons. I use them all the time and think they're part of the thinkpad DNA. That said, I love my X1 Yoga gen 6, but absolutely hate the keyboard. I don''t mind the reduced key travel, its the increased force now required to press down the keys that makes typing on it a chore.

    i'm gonna be generous and assume you were being genuine in mentioning Donnie in HR at 5:40, but why bother if you're not even gonna gender them properly? Some nonbinary folks do accept all pronouns, but wouldn't nonbinary Donnie probably happiest with they/them? makes it seem hollow as if it was a joke you made in passing that you happened to upload to youtube.

    For just watching content I use tent mode quite often actually. The laptop takes up a lot less desk space while in tent mode, which is great when you're doing something else.
    I also use tent mode for gaming with a controller occasionally because it makes the laptop run more quietly and keeps it slightly cooler.

    However my new Flow X13 has some issues where it occasionally just won't rotate the screen unless I restart it. Therefore I use tent mode less than I usually would right now.

    you can use the tent mode to place it in your desktop as part of your setup as a secondary screen while you work on an external monitor as your primary screen, that way tent mode not only would let you have a cleaner view without the laptop keyboard but also save you from having to use a laptop stand since it stands vertically on it's own.

    I have a lenovo from the yoga line from last year. The brushed finish on the sides looks nice, but it scratches everywhere. The ports get the most scratches as when trying to charge it or plug something in there is no way to do it without the type-c touching the sides of the port first. And it only takes type c to touch brushed metal for it to scratch it. You have to be very, very careful when connecting things because otherwise it will scratch. I would have liked to know this before buying it.

    Completely agree with nipple and mouse buttons. Lenovo makes great devices but they need to think this over again. Also, I know ThinkPad logo is what it is, but anyone with any design experience will be bothered as hell with its 45 degree tilt. It is just not visually pleasing thing to see any more.

    bit expensive, also, tablet mode is not good to use with Windows. I'd rather go for the regular X1 carbon.

    The thermal sucks. But the yoga instead. Your benchmark score is kinda off. I tested the 9i in R23 with multi core score of 10267

    This [Page up], [Page down] placement though.. What is the reason for that other than to make me smash the whole thing into pieces, when I accidently hit one, and buy a different notebook?
    So stupid! Shame on the person who came up with this! Engineer..

    Since you asked about who uses tent mode. I am using my Yoga notebook with the keyboard folded back nearly every day: I put the Yoga on a stand to elevate the monitor and connect my mechanical keyboard and BT mouse, so it becomes sort of a portable desktop replacement. On the other hand, I didn't use it as a tablet a single time in 3 years.

    This machine would make so much more sense with a 6800U. Alas, Intel has paid off the OEMs to ensure that AMD remains in the doghouse when it comes to premium configurations, designs, features, and screens.

    Have you ever tried using a notebook with gloves or have you ever tried to use it while standing? That’s what the nipple is for! Not for sitting at home 😂
