Today, Lenovo is on fire. It launches new laptops one after another. We have already managed to get acquainted with the ThinkPad X1 Extreme and the Yoga series first traditional notebook, namely the Yoga S730. And now it’s the turn of the Yoga Book C930. The biggest highlight of this notebook is the use of electronic ink screen instead of the physical keyboard.
As we said, the Lenovo Yoga C930 comes with a matt electronic ink screen instead of a traditional physical keyboard. It provides tactile feedback when typing, and can also be used as a writing pad. As you guess, it supports a stylus. Probably, when designing this laptop, the company has been keeping in mind it will be more suitable for artists or designers.
In terms of configuration, the Yoga Book C930 features a 10.8-inch (2560 x 1600) LCD IPS touchscreen and a 10.8-inch (1920 x 1080) E Ink screen. Under the hood, it carries the seventh-generation Intel processor (Core i5-7Y54 or Core m3-7Y30), Intel HD Graphics 615 graphics card, 4GB RAM, and up to 256GB SSD. So it should be able to meet the needs of light computing.
The Yoga Book C930 has dimensions of 260.4 x 179.44 x 9.9mm and weighs 775g. It has a 360 ‘strap’ hinge that allows users to flip all the way to tablet mode. So it can also be used as a tablet. There are also two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, a fingerprint sensor, and a battery providing up to 8.6 hours of use time.
The electronic ink screen not only serves as a keyboard or a stylus pad but also can serve as a PDF reader. It will save battery power. However, when not used as a display, the electronic ink screen works as a keyboard. Lenovo has added a slight isometric gradient to simulate the appearance of the 3D buttons. You can even turn the virtual trackpad on and off for extra space.
The Lenovo Yoga Book C930 will go on sale in October at a price tag of $999.
