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.

    1080p is garbage and 4k needs at least mx150 to be usable. where are <= 13" laptops with 4k, dgpu, and full keyboard (pgup/down/home keys on right side)

    I prefer 1080p screens on anything less than 15''

    Hahaha, the resolution treadmill!! No, 1366×768 was shit. 1920×1080 is perfectly acceptable, I absolutely HATE scaling on Windows.

    With 1080p the battery lasts 50% longer. Sure, noone wants this garbage!

    "Garbage" that increases battery life by 5 hours. "Garbage" that doesn't require scaling on a tiny laptop screen.

    What's with the gatekeeping? What do you gain by trashing sensible options that don't even affect you, and calling for nonsensical desktop specs on a machine that was never meant to be one's only computer?

    1080p on anything up to 15" is percfectly acceptable, don't be daft. 4K on a 13" laptop is entirely unnecessary. You'd need to run it at 200% scaling anyhow (or more), which brings usable resolution right back down to 1080p. It might be marginally sharper, but you wouldn't notice outside of the dramatically reduced battery life.

    With k4 movies bdrip or bdremux files about 50gb will be down to 5h this pc. I have ultrabook convertible. battery life to 11h. 2k movies with fhd lcd down to 7.5h with wqhd lcd down to 4,5h. I replaced lcd panels.

    Thank goodness your ignorant waffle is being put down here.

    If you like 4k, great, go for it. You can buy a model with a 4k display. Just don't tell us what we want.
  • Sayashr - Wednesday, September 19, 2018 - link

    The problem is that most of the time you have the 1080p option and no 4K option. This is killing many of us; good that it's a happystance for you.

    lets see if there will be any ryzen mobile updates in these new chassis. playing games at 50% render resolution at 720p on intel graphics has been painful -- maybe with some vega juice in there i can do 75% render resolution.
