The Lenovo Yoga 6 is a versatile 2-in-1 convertible laptop that can function as both a laptop and a tablet, suitable for general users who appreciate flexibility and moderate performance. It comes with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor with integrated Vega 8 graphics, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of storage, which should handle everyday tasks and light engineering work well. The Yoga 6's 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen with a 1920 x 1200 resolution offers good screen colors and is comfortable to use for general purposes. Its lower midrange price makes it an economical option considering its capabilities. A backlit keyboard and fingerprint reader add to its practical features. However, it is not the top choice for intensive gaming or complex 3D/machine learning tasks due to the integrated graphics. With over 12 hours of battery life, a weight of just over 3 pounds, and a solid build quality, it is also quite portable. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Battery Life:
4.7
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Portability:
4.6
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Operating Noise:
4.6
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
General Use:
4.3
PerfectRec’s General Use Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for general productivity, web browsing, streaming, video calls, and running a wide variety of apps and programs. The most important factors in this score include CPU performance, amount of RAM, screen quality, storage, and battery life. Keyboard quality, speaker quality, low fan noise, heat management, and to a lesser extent webcam quality are all moderately important factors for this score.
Content Creation:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Software Development:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Build Quality:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Engineering & Design:
4.1
The Lenovo Yoga 6 is well-suited for engineering and design due to its powerful AMD Ryzen 7 processor and ample 16GB of RAM, which can handle demanding applications and multitasking. Additionally, its high-quality IPS screen with good color accuracy makes it excellent for detail-oriented design work and its convertible 2-in-1 form factor adds versatility for different working conditions.
General Use Screen Quality:
3.9
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Keyboard Quality:
3.8
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Gaming & AI:
3.3
PerfectRec’s Gaming and AI Score strongly emphasizes graphics processing capability as well as AI performance, while also taking into account other factors that impact suitability for gaming and AI work. While performance (especially graphics performance) is the most important factor determining this score, we also give modest weight to screen quality, heat management, keyboard quality, and storage.

Mario Petzold | March 2023
"The AMD R7-7730U in the Lenovo Yoga 6 13 provides a suitable answer to the limited cooling capabilities of a convertible - especially in tablet mode. It draws high computing power from a comparatively limited power supply so that less heat has to be dissipated at the same time."
