As usual, Lenovo has landed at the IFA 2018 in Berlin with a whole new arsenal of laptops of all kinds, from the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, designed for business productivity, to the Yoga C630, first laptop with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon ARM processor.
The third major product is the Lenovo Yoga Book C930, a dual screen laptop, which leaves its previous generation touch keyboard to give way to an electronic ink touch screen, which allows it to offer more flexibility.
The first Yoga Book attracted a lot of attention. With a contained price and very tight dimensions, boasted a touch keyboard that was ” drawn ” on the surface in which, usually, we have the physical keyboard.
However, it took something more for us to take it seriously, and Lenovo, it seems, has hit the key. The Yoga Book C930 maintains the philosophy of the original Lenovo Yoga Book but introduces an electronic ink screen that occupies practically the entire base of the notebook.
- Display: 10.8 inches
- Main Screen Resolution: 2,560×1,600 pixels LCD
- Second Screen Resolution: 1,920×1,080 pixels with electronic ink
- Processor: Intel Core m3 or Core i5 seventh generation
- RAM: 4GB
- Storage: Up to 256GB
- Operating system: Windows 10
- Battery: 8.6 hours
The laptop is still very thin: it has a thickness of 9.9mm and weighs from 775 grams. The Yoga Book C930 has two Dolby Atmos speakers, a fingerprint reader and has the ability to connect to 4G LTE networks.
As for the design of the Yoga Book C930, there are not many surprises. We are facing a device somewhat heavier than the previous generation but with a very solid construction thanks to the body of magnesium and a tested hinge.
It is clear that we can not demand much in terms of performance, but for an educational or professional segment like if you are a text editor, it can be very interesting. It’s not meant to be a laptop replacement but can be utilized as a second device in your backpack.
The launch of the Yoga Book C930, dual screen laptop, is planned for October of this year and the price will be $ 999.
