Design and functions

Lenovo gave us the first yoga more than eight years ago. Since then, this elegant design has been the inspiration for countless products, including the BMax Y13 Pro. With two hinges, the screen can be rotated 360 degrees to turn the laptop into a tablet.

The Y13 Pro exudes quality thanks to a metal housing made of aluminum alloy, which has adopted the popular room gray color scheme and a surface made of brushed metal. The base has curves in all the right places and is rightly shy of tapering the edges to make it look thinner. As such, it follows in the footsteps of the MacBook correct.

There are no vents to facilitate airflow and that’s due to the low power dissipation of the Intel processor used by the Bmax Y13 Pro. The laptop acts like a huge heat sink to dissipate the heat. On the base of the laptop there is a flap in which there is a removable M.2 SSD.

The display is a bit like a fingerprint magnet, as BMax went for a glossy glass. It is a Full HD IPS touchscreen model with a bezel of only 5 mm on both sides. The webcam is on the upper edge, while the lower edge – which is closer to the keyboard – is much thicker and acts as a “retaining edge”.
