Lenovo Yoga Book C930 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

A welcome upgrade to the original Yoga Book

A clear step forward on the first Yoga Book ; Innovative design ; e-Ink display screams potential

Buggy software ; Very expensive for what you get ; Still feels like a prototype

The Yoga Book C930 is a clear step forward on the first-generation model. It features better specifications and a nifty new e-Ink keyboard/secondary display that has oodles of potential. But sadly software bugs and a ridiculously high asking price stop...

Lenovo Yoga C930 review: Sensational sound and visuals

 

Say hello to the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos soundbar laptop. Great sound and visuals meet long battery life and a superb typing experience.

Superb battery life (in the Core i5 version ; As tested) ; Decent typing experience ; Great sound from built-in Dolby 'soundbar' ; 360-degree hinge for increased flexibility

Large bottom bezel on screen ; Reflective screen quality ; 4G SIM breaks up unibody metal design with plastic additions ; No discrete graphics

How you view this Yoga will depend on what you want from a laptop. If you're looking for a reliable, long-life workhorse with decent sound and visuals then it's a sensational choice. If you're looking for a small footprint and the tiniest bezels in the...

Lenovo Yoga C930 review

 

Lenovo's flexible form factor laptop returns with a stylus in tow

Integrated stylus is handy for creatives ; Superb sound for such a skinny laptop ; Can't argue with performance or battery life

Dolby Vision support more limited than a true HDR display ; Stylus not as clever as a Surface Pro ; Premium price

A multi-use machine that does well in almost every area - but there are purpose-built alternatives that make more sense for those searching for specifics

Hands on: Lenovo Yoga Book C930 review

 

A huge leap forward in Lenovo's grand experiment

Bigger, sharper displays ; New E Ink bottom display ; Fingerprint reader ; More power and ports

Much more expensive ; Low on RAM

The new Lenovo Yoga Book C930 addresses practically every bugbear that we had with the original model, but does so at a vastly higher price point than before. Regardless, color us plenty excited to fully test this refreshing, new device.

Lenovo Yoga C930 review: A 2-in-1 that revolves around sound

 

The latest Yoga 2-in 1 boasts a rotating Dolby Atmos ‘soundbar'. Is there more to it than just a special speaker hinge?

Garaged stylus ; Brilliant battery life ; In-built webcam shutter ; Amazing Dolby Atmos speaker hinge

Gets too hot ; Lacking in ports ; Sub-par display quality

Performance speeds are not bad either, considering it’s only got a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 chipset, and the battery longevity is superb. What’s more, small touches such as the webcam shutter and self-charging garaged stylus go a long way to enhancing the...

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 (2018) review: Hands on with the knock-to-open notebook from Lenovo at IFA 2018

 

At IFA 2018, Lenovo shows off its slimmest laptop yet, with dual displays and a snazzy knock-to-open function

This article will be updated with a full in-depth review when the Lenovo Yoga Book C360 becomes available in the UK, but for now you can always have a read of our 5-star review of the previous Yoga Book.

Lenovo Yoga Book C390 Review: A New (E Ink) Page for 2-in-1s

 

Lenovo's Yoga Book C930 ($999/€999) furthers the 2-in-1 trend with a new twist: a virtual E Ink keyboard and touchpad that also converts into a reader and notepad. With innovative features like the ability to bring screenshots into the E Ink notepad...

The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is a stylish and portable dual-screen convertible with a one-of-a-kind E Ink keyboard, touchpad, reader and notepad. Its versatility makes it a great travel device, but an old processor and misbehaving touchpad hold it back.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 Review: An expensive experiment

 

The Yoga Book C930 is an engineering marvel, and swapping its keys for an e-ink display is groundbreaking. But the addition of a drawing pad and (limited) e-reader functionality don't necessarily make up for a weaker typing experience. If you can touch...

Solid build quality ; Good battery life ; Keyboard is fine for short bursts of typing ; Flexibility for drawing and e-reading is good for trips

Sluggish performance ; Bezel-heavy design showing its age in 2018 ; Touchscreen keyboard isn't great for hammering out long documents

It's a truth universally acknowledged that companies will charge inflated prices for new technology. Sometimes it's for prestige, and sometimes it's just to make back all that R&D cash. That doesn't mean I can't rail against the industry expecting...

This is the best Windows two-in-one -- if you can afford it

 

Lenovo fine-tuned its formula for the Yoga C930, adding a trio of useful features that make this premium laptop tough to beat.

Lenovo's Yoga C930 puts its 360-degree hinges to work as the two-in-one's speaker system. The included active pen is discreetly housed and charged in the C930's body and its webcam has a physical slider to block it when not in use. Performance and...

The included pen is a little small for extended use and there's no option for discrete graphics, but no real deal breakers unless you object to its price.

Excellent performance and a stylish and functional design make the Lenovo Yoga C930 simply one of the best two-in-one laptops available.

The half-E Ink Lenovo Yoga Book C930 may be the most unusual laptop of the year

 

With one standard display and a second E Ink one with an on-screen keyboard, this slim folding 2-in-1 takes a little getting used to.

The revamped Yoga Book improves on the original version, with a better typing experience and more powerful hardware. The small size is great for travelling.

Using an E Ink keyboard and touchpad full time is never going to be as good as the real thing. The E Ink second screen bizarrely can't read Kindle e-books. Battery life is short for a highly portable laptop.

The Yoga Book C930 is an adventurous, risk-taking laptop that skirts the conventional thinking on portable computers. The result is interesting, sometimes fun, but often frustrating.
