Lenovo has launched the new 13-inch Yoga 900 with advanced features to compete against the Apple MacBook Pro, Microsoft Surface Book, the Apple MacBook Air and Dell XPS 13.

The Lenovo Yoga 900 has a characteristic 360-degree 'watchband' hinge mechanism and a lightweight ultrabook design that makes it unique from its competitors. It has a significantly upgraded processor and might become a benchmark among ultrabook convertibles.

The Yoga 900 weighs 2.8 pounds and has a thickness is of .59 inches. It’s powered by a new a new 6th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. Its touchscreen turns in every direction. The Lenovo Yoga 900 can be considered somewhere between a 13-inch MacBook Air and 13-Inch MacBook Pro Retina.

Lenovo, however, continues to install adware on its new computers despite costumer backlash against this practice. An adware called Superfish was installed on previous laptops without user permission before being taken down because of massive complaints. The app brings in third-party ads on Google searches and websites. Adware seems the only big problem with the Lenovo Yoga 900.

Lenovo Yoga 900 has spectacular features and specs that might even surpass the MacBook experience, even though most Mac fans and supporters would opt for MacBooks.

Perhaps, the updated Dell XPS 13 can provide tough competition for the Lenovo Yoga 900. Dell XPS 13 might not be a hybrid device but it features a 13-inch display that fares well against the display on the Lenovo Yoga 900.
