Lenovo Yoga 2-in-1 Laptop

Lenovo Yoga Book's development, the Lenovo Yoga Book C930, attempts to keep huge numbers of the things we love about the first, which is a generally excellent thing as the Lenovo Yoga Book stays to be one of our preferred 2-in-1 workstation/tablet half breeds.

In any case, not at all like numerous equipment spin-offs that take no chances with just a couple of iterative updates to their equipment, the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 additionally goes out on a limb. Past tending to the issues we had with its forerunner, this PC brings to the table an imaginative element: a subsequent E Ink show. What's more, this presentation serves as a console, however it additionally fills in as a cushion for making notes and drawing just as a conventional E Ink peruser for review archives.

Lenovo then fortifies this possibly progressive plan with an improved equipment – positively considerably more dominant than the original's. Could Lenovo have a genuine hit with the Yoga Book C930? Allow's find to out.

What's more, should you conclude that it's the best approach, watch out for Black Friday and Cyber Monday arrangements to spare you a touch of cash.

Cost and accessibility

The first Yoga Book was structured by Lenovo to be a moderate 2-in-1 gadget that was available to a wide scope of individuals on account of its low cost.

The Lenovo Yoga Book C930, then again, has various goals, with Lenovo apparently going for an increasingly premium item. That creative second screen likewise includes some significant pitfalls, so the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 has wound up being a more costly item than its forerunner.

The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 costs $929.99 (£1,299.99, AU$1,999), which is significantly more costly than the base model for the first Yoga Book, which cost $549.99 (about £450, AU$720) for the Windows 10 adaptation.

The nearly multiplying of the value implies the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is pitched at an on the whole new market. While it's a courageous move to make such a profoundly unique gadget contrasted with the first model, individuals who purchased the Yoga Book and were wanting to move up to the most recent rendition may feel marginally relinquished by Lenovo's pursuing of the top of the line advertise.

In the US and Australia, there is just one model at present accessible, and it accompanies a seventh era Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor, Windows 10 Home, a 10-inch 2,560 x 1,600 IPS screen, 4GB of LPDDR3 memory and 256GB SSD. Illustrations are taken care of by the incorporated Intel HD Graphics 615 GPU.

In the UK, there is a base model for £1,099 that accompanies a flimsier Intel Core m3-7Y30 Processor and 128GB SSD, however the remainder of the specs are the equivalent. To get the model with the equivalent Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor and SSD size as the US and Australia, the cost increments to £1,299.99.

Those specs are not all that much, which implies the greater part of the expense of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 seems to originate from the subsequent screen. It's likewise significant that a battery-fueled stylus is additionally remembered for the value, something the Lenovo Yoga Book C930's rivals –, for example, the Surface Pro 6 – preclude.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is amazingly thin and light.


Lenovo has created some genuinely staggering workstations as of late – particularly in its Yoga go – and we're satisfied to report that the Yoga Book C930 is the same. This is a little and svelte workstation with a lovely watchband-connect pivot, which was first presented in the Yoga 3.

The bended pivot, just as the Lenovo logo that runs down the left-hand side of the top when shut, shows how obligated the plan of the Yoga Book C930 is to conventional books.

At the point when shut, it's a surprisingly slim gadget at simply 9.9mm thick, and weighs simply 775g. The slenderness of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is mostly because of the way that it doesn't have a physical console.

As it's a Yoga gadget, the pivot permits the Yoga Book C930 to be adaptable, flipping the screen so it very well may be utilized in tent mode – for watching media on, or flipped totally back to be utilized as a tablet. It is in tablet mode where the slim structure of the Yoga Book C930 truly sticks out, as it enables the gadget to be not unreasonably a lot thicker – or heavier – than a standard tablet.

A power catch and volume rocker on the gadget's correct side are edged in chrome, and speakers sit behind spotted grilles on either side of the 'console'.

The speakers siphon out appropriate range and volume in spite of their size, because of Dolby Atmos innovation inside. Over the E Ink show there's a unique finger impression scanner for biometric login, and there are additionally two USB-C ports – one on each side – which can be utilized for charging.

The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 additionally accompanies a microSD space and SIM card plate for the LTE-empowered adaptations. This enables you to introduce a cell phone SIM card into the gadget to get to 4G versatile web. This is an increasingly advantageous – and secure – method for jumping on the web while you're all over the place.

While the dainty plan is praiseworthy and noteworthy, it means there's no real way to stow away the stylus, known as the "Accuracy Pen," which is a disgrace, and it implies you'll need to ensure you place it some place safe when it's not being used. The stylus has magnets that enables it to join to the Yoga Book C930's body, yet we wouldn't believe it to clutch the stylus while you convey it about.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 accompanies an included stylus.

The principle show has had a major update since the last form, and is presently a 10.8-inch IPS board with a QHD goals of 2,560 x 1,600. That is somewhat bigger than the past model's 10.1-inch screen size, and a more honed goals (the first had a 1080p showcase).

It's the high goals that truly makes the principle show of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 stick out, with the QHD goals pressed into 10.8 inches giving astoundingly sharp and clear picture quality gratitude to its 281 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel thickness. With a splendor of 500 nits and a 85% shading extent, the screen of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 truly is delightful to observe.

Less noteworthy are the stout bezels that encompass the screen. We've been ruined as of late by PCs with slender bezels that diminish the general size of the gadget while offering noticeable quality to the presentation. With the Lenovo Yoga Book C930, these huge bezels feel rather antiquated, and thinning them down could have made the gadget significantly littler.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930The second screen utilizes E Ink innovation to reproduce a console.

Second screen

Maybe the greatest selling purpose of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is the second screen that serves as a console, yet in addition as a drawing cushion and digital book peruser too. We've seen double screen gadgets previously, however with the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 it appears to be a characteristic fit.

It helps that the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 utilizes E Ink show innovation for the screen, which is found on most digital book perusers, as opposed to Lenovo's own exclusive Create Pad with capacitive touch and EMR pen innovation.

This gives the second screen much more power and adaptability, so more applications can be shown on it, and it very well may be utilized to understand reports. The screen is bigger, with a virtual touchpad that grows when tapped, at that point shrivels when not being used. By and by, it functions admirably.

While composing on a screen will never feel as responsive or material as utilizing a physical console, Lenovo has remembered some astute stunts for the screen to make it feel progressively good to compose on. In this way, there's an improved haptic criticism which delicately vibrates the screen when you drive a key, alongside unobtrusive activitys that cause it to seem like the keys are moving when squeezed.


It helps make composing on the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 feel progressively normal to type on, however it doesn't exactly coordinate composing on a physical console. For quick typers (as are we), you may encounter a slight slack to both the catch press movements and the letters showing up in your record as you type, which can be somewhat vexing.

All things considered, we are wonderfully amazed by how decent it feels to type on the screen. By tapping on the symbols in the upper right corner of second show, you can switch between modes.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930You can compose notes on the subsequent screen utilizing a stylus.

The drawing/note mode enables you to draw or compose on a clear page utilizing the new stylus, which depends on dynamic electrostatic (AES) innovation that uses a conductive pen tip to cause responses in the E Ink show's digitizer. The final product is a far faster drawing reaction, with the computerized cursor following your pen almost balanced.

There's additionally a perusing mode which enables you to see good documents –, for example, PDFs and digital books – and read them on the E Ink show. It functions admirably, and implies in case you're considering purchasing another PC and another digital book peruser, at that point the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 could be the gadget for you, and set aside you some cash also.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930Reading reports on the subsequent screen is agreeable.

Perusing reports is a lot more agreeable on the E Ink show, which has a low-light matt impact that makes it feel like perusing content on paper. It's a disgrace that you can't alter or compose notes on the reports in this mode, however it's a decent extra component that is an invite expansion to the Lenovo Yoga Book C930.

With a seventh era Intel Core i5-7Y54 CPU, which is a double center versatile Kaby Lake processor that was discharged in 2016, and only 4GB of RAM, anybody expecting the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 to highlight bleeding edge (and incredible) segments will be disillusioned.

To the extent PCs go, 4GB of RAM doesn't generally cut it any longer, and we like to see 8GB at any rate in a PC at this value extend. The low specs are important to keep the machine so thin and light, however it means that on the off chance that you need a PC with enough capacity to deal with undertakings like photograph and video altering, at that point this isn't the PC for you.

Along these lines, indeed we're left with a PC where we need to alert potential purchasers into bringing down their desires. In the event that you need a PC/tablet half breed remarkably fit for composing archives, perusing the web and perusing digital books, at that point ostensibly there's no better PC available.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930Using the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 in tent mode is incredible for watching recordings.

Be that as it may, in case you're after an increasingly future-verification PC that can deal with serious undertakings, at that point you will be frustrated by the presentation of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930. The issue is that, at this value point, you shouldn't feel like you're making bargains or bringing down your desires.

There's a great deal of amazing, fit workstations out there at this value go, for example, the Dell XPS 13 and the significantly less expensive Huawei MateBook 13, which both sit at the highest point of our best PCs manage. They offer considerably more cutting-edge segments and better execution, while in the XPS 13's case offering a thin and light PC that is similar to the Yoga Book C930's svelte structure.

What those gadgets don't offer is LTE versatile information or the double screen plan of the Yoga Book C930. Things being what they are, while thinking about Lenovo's most recent offering, you're looked with an unmistakable choice: is the E Ink second show worth the cost? On the off chance that you can live without it, at that point your cash is in an ideal situation spent on an increasingly competent workstation.

Notwithstanding, in spite of its low specs, the Yoga Book C930 performs well for everyday undertakings, and Windows 10 functions admirably on it in general. We've seen a couple of times when things delayed to a slither as it stacks up applications, or attempts to shuffle various undertakings immediately.

Once more, the optional screen works very well as a console and touchpad – in any event, supporting multi-contact motions. Be that as it may, in case you will type on this gadget for significant stretches of time, at that point you'll most likely need to connect an outside console, yet for shooting fast messages and taking notes, it carries out the responsibility well.

The expression 'carries out the responsibility well' can be applied to the general execution of the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 – as should be obvious from our benchmark results – which tragically is condemning with black out acclaim thinking about the cost of the PC.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is thin and light, however it includes some major disadvantages.

Battery life

The main territory that the Yoga Book C930 verges on dazzling with regards to execution is in battery life, with the workstation piling on a nice 7 hours and 58 minutes in our battery test, where we run a circled 1080p video with the screen at half splendor.

This will see you through long flights or voyages while viewing a film, and with the phenomenal screen nature of the Yoga Book C930, that is something you'll likely need to utilize this gadget for.

E Ink shows are likewise well known for not being too eager for battery, so the expansion of a subsequent screen doesn't seem to affect the Yoga Book C930's battery life in any significant manner.

In the more serious PCMark 8 Home battery life test, which copies errands, for example, word preparing, web perusing and video calling, the battery endured a less noteworthy 4 hours and 5 minutes. In our everyday use, we found the Yoga Book C930 will last a full work day – insofar as you're cautious – however very little more.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is surely stunningly planned.

Last decision

The Yoga Book C930 verges on being an extraordinary PC, yet tragically it misses the mark. There's a mess to adore about the gadget, from its thin and light structure, flawless fundamental screen and creative E Ink optional screen.

That second screen specifically is great, and makes an amazing showing with acting like a standard console, while likewise enabling you to write down notes and read digital books. The E Ink show offers highlights and a degree of flexibility that the Yoga Book C930's rivals essentially don't have.

Be that as it may, it is anything but an ideal gadget, and a portion of its weaknesses lead to veritable dissatisfaction. We'd have adored for Lenovo to pack all the more dominant parts into the Yoga Book C930. At the cost Lenovo is requesting the Yoga Book C930 in 2019, a right around 3-year-old, double center CPU and 4GB of RAM simply won't cut it.

With those specs, you may locate your costly new Yoga Book C930 could begin to feel truly old in just a couple of years. At the point when you're going through this sort of cash, you need to realize your PC will keep going you for quite a while.

In the interim, aficionados of the first Yoga Book will most likely like the sound of the overhauls – yet be completely put off by the monstrous jump in cost.

All in all, where does that leave the Yoga Book C930? Lenovo does such a large number of things directly here, however its underpowered segments and significant expense mean we can't healthily prescribe it. It does at any rate give us trust in the up and coming age of Yoga Book – for Lenovo is so near acing this.
