This flagship convertible houses an active stylus, 12 GB of RAM, and a 14-inch 1080p touchscreen all wrapped in a rigid aluminum chassis.

End-of-year deals are usually filled with last generation models as stores and resellers want to clear stock for the impending next generation models. Scroll through enough deals and you'll eventually find some diamonds in the rough.

Best Buy is currently running a sale on the Lenovo Yoga C940 for $999 or $300 off the original asking price. The deal is notable because the Yoga C940 is Lenovo's latest 14-inch convertible subnotebook equipped with Intel's newest Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 processor. Had it been the last generation Yoga C930 with Intel's older Whiskey Lake-U processor, then we would have been less enthused. The Ice Lake CPU offers a high level of GPU performance for a 14-inch convertible form factor. It's not going to run the latest Battlefield games, of course, but less demanding games like LoL, DOTA 2, Rocket League, or Fortnite will run better than you might otherwise expect on a super-thin convertible with no GeForce GPU.

The system is not without its disadvantages. For example, we find the keyboard keys and clickpad to be spongier than on the HP Spectre x360 13 and the lack of an HDMI port means owners will have to rely solely on USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 for docking. Otherwise, it'll be tough to find a better convertible for under a grand.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
