Design

The Lenovo yoga c930 designed robust case with aluminum alloy metal body with 360-degree hinges built-in Dolby sound speakers.

The screen has pretty slim on three sides, which helps minimize overall thickness.

It has the capability of FHD, and 4K supported1080p panel (1,920 x 1,080 pixels)  versions are available with the touch screen.

Yoga C930 has bundled a stylus Pen that slots neatly garaged when not in use and charges while it’s there

Case: The Lenovo yoga C930 designed robust case with aluminum alloy metal body with 360-degree hinges built-in Dolby sound speakers.

Display: Two types of display options available based on your selection in yoga C930 full HD (1,920 by 1,080) or 4K (3,840 by 2,160) touch screens

Graphics: Lenovo Yoga c930 are not designed for the graphical task; you can perform small tasks photo editing and play little games while your work breaks. The laptop was Integrated Intel® UHD Graphics 620.

Audio:  Rotating speakers in hinges are amazing. Lenovo worked with Dolby soundbar to place rotating 360 hinges. Another set of speakers was positioned downward. These are paired with a soundbar for clear audio from any angle to suit convertible 2-in-1 laptop.

Keyboard: The buttonless, clickable touchpad and backlit keyboard feel quite sturdy, but clicks and button presses are shallow.

Touchpad: The large, 4.1 x 2.7-inch touchpad on the Yoga C930 2 in 1 is responsive. It was large enough to allow for simple multi-touch input. It’s very responsive surface worked very well overall we would say the touchpad left a decent impression. 

Pointing Stick: Lenovo Yoga C930 support pen, and it included in the laptop Garage. We can park the active stylus pen in the laptop case when you place the pen in the garage. It will charge and ready to use whenever you required.

Webcam: you are more concerned about privacy, no need to cover with stickers. Lenovo Yoga C930 2-in-1 has the inbuilt privacy shutter. If you are not using the cam, then simply close the shutter. The shutter and its lever are so small and well-integrated.

Ports:  USB-C ports are full Thunderbolt 3 ready with display-out support, charging, and all the rest. There’s also a full-size USB-A 3.1 port and one audio jack.

Storage: Storage options are plentiful, ranging from 256GB to 2TB, and each capacity uses the cutting-edge PCI Express SSD interface for fast data access.

Performance

The Yoga C930 2 in 1 performance was more than adequate. It is well suited for office work, it also performed very well when watching movies.

Battery Life: Battery is pretty much good for all-day work with moderate use. The battery is not user-replaceable

Heat: yoga c930 2 in 1 was not showing only one hot spot at the bottom at 41 degrees, which is uncomfortable usage.

Durability: The case was surprisingly robust, sturdy, very well made, and seems worth the price, with decent input devices and a touch display.

Security: The fingerprint reader on the Yoga C930 makes Windows sign-in easier.
