Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 YB-J912F

70% Lenovo Yoga Book C930

The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is a futuristic 2-in-1 convertible laptop, with a conventional screen paired with an e-ink display that you use for both writing and typing.

75% Lenovo Yoga Book C930 Review: An expensive experiment
Source: Engadget English
The Yoga Book C930 is an engineering marvel, and swapping its keys for an e-ink display is groundbreaking. But the addition of a drawing pad and (limited) e-reader functionality don’t necessarily make up for a weaker typing experience. If you can touch type on a tablet already, then go for it, but everyone else should try before you buy. Stodgy performance and a high price might deter road warriors looking for a performance machine, too.

I admit it: I really want to like the Yoga Book C930. I like that Lenovo is not only willing to take a chance on a weird design, but also to iterate on it and make it better. Just considering the device as a physical object and even as a concept, I love it.

The Yoga Book C930 is an adventurous, risk-taking laptop that skirts the conventional thinking on portable computers. The result is interesting, sometimes fun, but often frustrating.

Hands on: Lenovo Yoga Book C930 review

The new Lenovo Yoga Book C930 addresses practically every bugbear that we had with the original model, but does so at a vastly higher price point than before. Regardless, color us plenty excited to fully test this refreshing, new device.

Hands On With the Lenovo Yoga Book That Replaced the Keyboard With a Display
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The new Yoga Book C930 is yet another interesting concept of what the laptop of the future could look like. While many skeptics might disagree, just look at what happened to the physical keyboards on phones. There’s going to be a definite learning curve at first, but on the upside, wouldn’t it be great if your laptop keyboard could autocorrect your typing or even predict the next word? The price for a glimpse in to the future isn’t cheap. The You Book C930 starts at €999 (approximately Rs. 80,000), which makes it more of a premium offering than its predecessor.

Yoga C930 first-look
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Yoga C930 doesn’t appear to be a significant update on the, admittedly still excellent, Yoga 920, but the changes that Lenovo has made are positive nonetheless. The minor hardware refresh puts it on a par with competing laptops such as the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1, and I’ll be super-keen to see how its Dolby upgrades perform with proper testing.

The Lenovo Yoga C930 is a bold new direction for the company’s flagship 2-in-1 laptop, dropping storied design features in favor of more clever hardware to make for a device well-prepared to meet its competition head-on.

Lenovo Yoga Book 2 initial review: The keyless laptop returns... and it's crazier than ever
Source: Pocket Lint English
We love the Lenovo Yoga Book for its boldness; it does things differently and we respect that. That said, the 2018 Yoga Book ramps things up in many departments, with USB-C, a proper Intel Core i processor, better screen, knock-to-open feature and more. It's a step up, although it still feels like a laptop with one half in the future and the other in the past.

10.8":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
