Reviews for the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 YB-J912F

84.2% Lenovo Yoga Book C930 (i5-7Y54, LTE, E-Ink) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
The new Yoga Book has an E-Ink display instead of a keyboard and can be considered a combination of a laptop, a tablet and an e-reader. On top of that, you can also digitalize text and drawings with this all-rounder. The device is based on its predecessor from 2016 but offers many changes and improvements. For instance, it provides better performance. On the other hand, it has also dropped at least one feature. Is the 2018 Yoga Book worth twice the price of the old version? Find out in our detailed review.

In the space right now, the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is unlike anything else, which – combined with its pricey cost – can make it a tough sell over other comparable models. Take for instance the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 that starts at $899 sans keyboard (+$129.99 for the keyboard). The Surface Pro 6 offers the better 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor. However, the Yoga Book C930 is an option worth considering because it bridges the tablet and mobile laptop experiences together – just as long as you have some patience in learning and acquiring a taste for its keyboard.

Lenovo Yoga Book review | TechSwitch

In fact, this assumes so much on the entrance of app and file compatibility.All instructed, the Yoga Guide’s Create Pad and Halo Keyboard are wowing instruments that separate this pill from nearly all of 2-in-1 gadgets. Much more so, they stand to see Lenovo spur yet one more normal in dual-purpose computing gadgets. However earlier than we get forward of ourselves, let’s see how this factor stacks up in opposition to among the main tablets, and what it’s like to make use of as a productiveness machine.

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.

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.

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.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 YB-J912F is an innovative 2-in-1 laptop which is ultrathin and ultralight. It features a rich menu of innovative features and is sleek and stylish in design. Lenovo claimed that they have engineered every component of the Yoga C930 2-in-1 to make the user experience better. Designed to be equally stylish in every mode, the Yoga C930 is crafted from premium aluminum with high-precision drills and polished twice for a luxurious feel. As for color options, users can choose from Mica or Iron Gray. The Yoga C930 offers an Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor, Intel’s fastest 15 W mobile processor engineered for powerful responsiveness and speed in a razor-thin convertible. Paired with 4 GB DDR3 RAM, a 256 GB SSD and an Intel HD Graphics 615, it is a mid-range configuration that can get most tasks done. The audio system is the highlight of the model, which is not common on a laptop. Working hand in hand with Dolby, Lenovo created the industry’s first speakers that fit into a convertible hinge for powerfully immersive sound in every mode. Dolby Atmos delivers breathtaking, three-dimensional audio that flows above and around with depth and precision. Combined with two sets of speakers featuring powerful down-firing woofers, custom tweeters, and unique vibration buffers that reduce unwanted noise, audio will sound bigger, deeper and more accurate.

To complement with the audio system, it has a 10.8-inch 16:9 IPS display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,660 pixels and a pixel density of 283 PPI. With the ultra-vivid imaging of Dolby Vision, users can experience brighter brights, blacker blacks, and colors never before seen on standard displays, e.g. the true red of an English double-decker bus, or the sharp blue of a summer sky. The company has heard from customers that keeping track of a digital pen can be a pain. The Yoga C930 ensures users will be able to capture thoughts the moment they occur with a Garaged Pen that fits right into the chassis. Better yet, it charges in its compartment. Furthermore, for users who wonder if their camera is truly off or if the people on their conference call have seen them in their pajamas, the Yoga Book C930 has a solution. With the Yoga C930’s convenient TrueBlock Privacy Shutter, simply slide it open when ready to stream, and push it back into place when done. As a conclusion, the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 is a laptop with interesting features. The Yoga Book C930 is an option worth considering because it bridges tablet and mobile laptop experiences together. It is a laptop suitable for more adventurous users who like to explore new ways of entertainment.

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.
