That is great that with Yoga Home 900 one would not need a TV anymore, that's how it should be :-).


First, How does it work with the speakers? Do you need to have external speakers plugged to the TV set up box or is Yoga Home providing the sound based on the HDMI input? I also assume that it will work the same way with Playstation for example as with TV.


Second, I do find the cables coming from the side of the Yoga a bit unaesthetic as a TV, I assume that those are the only ports so with the mouse and keyboard plugged it would look even more cabelly?  Maybe something that could be considered in next integrations.

Hi Kalvin, I was wondering, do you still own the Yoga Home 900? I recently purchased one used and love it, but the machine is missing the recovery partition and most of the software that came with it (seems they wanted a clean wipe.) Is there any way to get the recovery partition back?
