The camera is only 720p at 1MP, but the quality is okay. I don't like the positioning of the camera at the bottom of the screen. While turning the Yoga 910 into tablet or tent mode will bring the camera back up, it is very annoying for conference calls in normal notebook mode. At least Lenovo centered the camera instead of placing it on the left as Dell did with the XPS 13.

Opening up the Yoga 910 was very easy, and as you can see, the battery takes up most of the notebook's real estate. I was surprised to find that the Yoga 910 has two fans, but I guess the concept was to spread out cooling so the fans can run at lower RPMs.

The 256GB M.2 PCI-E SSD is a Samsung PM951, and the WIFI is a Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4A 2x2 Wireless AC/BT 4.1 offering speeds up to 867 Mbps.

The battery is a nine cell 78Wh beast. The fans are placed symmetrically on either side of the notebook. We can also see that the hinges are anchored firmly with multiple hold down points.

The most important part of the image isn't that the JBL speakers are much larger than you might expect, but that Lenovo has placed counterweights all over the edge of the notebook to better balance the product. I admire that level of detail.
