Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga A940-27ICB
The Lenovo Yoga A940 is a very good all-in-one PC for creative professionals. However, while there’s a lot going for it, including a good price and thoughtful design that includes some innovative features, it’s let down by under-powered components.

Lenovo's IdeaCentre Yoga A940 is a rare convertible all-in-one desktop, with a reclining 4K display and well-done creative accessories. The build quality and screen leave us wanting, but it's a serviceable, cheaper alternative to Microsoft's Surface Studio 2.

The Lenovo Yoga A940 is the Surface Studio that you've been waiting for. I rarely recommend actual Surface products because of these same reasons; they're just not the best hardware in any category. The Yoga A940 takes what is broken about the Studio and fixes it. Oh, and it's more inexpensive than the $3,500 Surface Studio 2, starting at just $2,349.99. My biggest complaints are either trivial or can be easily fixed with a driver update. For example, the webcam absolutely sucks, but that's only because it's incredibly buggy. The keyboard and mouse that come with it aren't great, but you'll probably be better off with your own peripherals anyway.
