Hands on: Lenovo Yoga C930 review

 

A bold new direction for the 2-in-1 laptop

The Lenovo Yoga C930 is a bold new direction for the company’s flagship 2-in-1 laptop, dropping storied design features in favor of more clever hardware to make for a device well-prepared to meet its competition head-on.

Lenovo Yoga C930 (2018) review: Hands on with the first laptop to feature Dolby Vision AND Dolby Atmos

 

The latest premium 2-in-1 laptop from Lenovo, the Yoga C930, is kitted out with cutting edge visual and audio technology from Dolby

For fans of the 2-in-1 laptop setup, the Yoga C930 seems to be the full package, offering the ultimate in visual and audio entertainment coupled with supreme speed and power. And then there’s the bundled pen, which means you can go straight into tablet...

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.

Lenovo Yoga C930

 

With a revamped hinge, an integrated stylus, and a sleek design, Lenovo's Yoga C930 2-in-1 convertible laptop is even better than its winning predecessor.

Integrated stylus. Thin and light. Stylish metal design with multiple color options. Optional 4K display. Webcam privacy filter. Dolby Vision (HDR) support. Excellent battery life.

No SD-card reader. Ships with some bloatware.

Bottom Line: With a revamped hinge, an integrated stylus, and a sleek design, Lenovo's Yoga C930 2-in-1 convertible laptop is even better than its winning predecessor.

Lenovo Yoga C930-13IKB (i7-8550U, FHD) Convertible Review

 

More versatile than ever. We check out the pricier Core i7 SKU to see how it holds when up against the less expensive Core i5 SKU. Is it worth investing in the faster option? And how much better is the faster option exactly?

better Turbo Boost performance than Core i5 SKU ; good speaker quality for the size ; built-in webcam privacy slider ; integrated active stylus ; great build quality ; NVMe SSD

smaller battery capacity than last gen model ; louder than Core i5 SKU when under load ; no SD card reader; few integrated ports ; no dedicated GPU options ; display could be brighter

How much faster is the Yoga C930 Core i7 SKU compared to the Core i5 SKU? Expect a 20 percent increase in raw CPU power at most when both systems are under heavy stress. The Core i7 SKU is better at maintaining faster Turbo Boost clock rates for longer...

The Lenovo Yoga Just Keeps Getting Better

 

Lenovo's line of Yoga laptops is well known and liked for the clever hinges that allow the devices to smoothly transform from a regular clamshell with a decent keyboard to a thick tablet. In particular, the Yoga made a name for itself with a slick...

The hinge is actually clever. It really is taking into consideration what a laptop user might do in tablet mode.
