Lenovo has introduced its new Yoga C930 convertible notebook. Just like last year’s Yoga 920 PC, the new generation Yoga laptop is based on Intel’s 8th Gen Core i-series processor with four cores, however the C930 comes in a new CNC-machined aluminum enclosure that features a new 360-degree watchband hinge, as well as a Dolby Atmos-supporting soundbar.
The Lenovo Yoga C930 is powered by Intel’s Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U processors, which are paired with 8/12/16 GB of DDR4 memory. Storage is provided by a PCIe SSD, with Lenovo offering a range of capacities from 256 GB to 2 TB.
Just like the previous-generation Yoga 920, the latest model is outfitted with a 13.9” IPS display panel with very thin bezels, with a choice of either Ultra-HD (3840×2160) or Full-HD (1920×1080) resolutions. Meanwhile, the new LCD also supports Dolby Vision HDR. Furthermore, Lenovo equipped its Yoga C930 with a Dolby Atmos-supporting soundbar. Speaking of audio subsystem, the convertible laptop is also equipped with a far field microphone and supports Wake on Voice functionality.
When it comes to connectivity, the new Yoga C930 has an 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controller, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as one USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-A port. In addition, the notebook has a fingerprint reader and a webcam with a privacy shutter.
From portability point of view the new Yoga C930 seems to be very similar to its predecessor, the Yoga 920. The system features a 14.5-mm z-height and weighs 1.38 kilograms (3.04 pounds). As for battery life, the Yoga C930 with a Full-HD display can work for 14.5 hours on one charge, whereas the Yoga C930 with an Ultra-HD screen can work for 9 hours.
Lenovo will start sales of its Yoga C930 in October, with prices starting at $1,399.99. Meanwhile creative professionals will want to take note that Lenovo will be bundling its new 4096-level stylus with the laptop, which may help tip the scales here.

heffeque - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkHopefully the 16 GB ram + 512 SSD won't be crazy expensive.
StevenD - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkI doubt it will be bellow 2k, if it's anywhere close to 1.5k i'd buy it immediately
sharath.naik - Sunday, September 9, 2018 - linkfor 14 inch 1080p is as high as you should go. That is what makes the 14 inch the perfect screen size for laptops. 13 inch you will need dpi scaling even at 1080p and at 15.6 inch 1080p feels a bit low res but cannot go 2k or 1.5 k either without DPI scaling.
Sayashr - Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - linkThis is a ridiculous and irresponsible thing to assert. Personally I cannot look at machines like the Carbon and X1 Tablet and X1 Yoga because they their screen resolutions are comparably pathetically low; I need as much resolution as possible so I can get as much screen real estate as possible. Just because you like everything big on your screen does not mean that others cannot appreciate fine details and a wide canvas of a high resolution screen. Lenovo got the screen resolution right with the Yoga 2 Pro, and the screens that have followed that tradition; if you want a 1080p screen for yourself then by all means, but do not relegate others to suffer with your low-resolution displays.
stanleyipkiss - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkWhat's with the different font on the "C" in the title? Copy paste with different formatting?
HStewart - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkMaybe for Convertible
antonyt - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkHe doesn't mean the name of the product, he means the literal headline of this article. The "C" is clearly in a different font and looks very odd.
HStewart - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkMaybe it is the "new CNC-machined aluminum enclosure" mention in article - Lenovo website has nothing on it - it could be typo error.
GreenReaper - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkIt's the Cyrillic Capital Letter Es. Char U+0421.
HStewart - Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - linkI wonder why it does not have the new U chips like i7-8565 with the Spectra / Meltdown fixes. and faster speeds.
