The Yoga range of convertible laptops from Lenovo has been around for over six years now. The preceding generation Yoga C920 continues to be fresh in reminiscence and quite an acceptable system, way to the precise watchband hinge design. This modern-day model does away with the watchband, putting a rotating soundbar in its area.

The design is a conventional convertible — with the aid of that, we mean the screen swivels around a complete 360 ranges to permit exceptional usage modes. The ‘Glass’ in the call means that that is a unique edition of the C930 with a glass lid in preference to metallic. The glass is terrific smooth and has a dotted wave design. Honestly, we opt for the understated look of brushed metal compared to the glass. Not to say the glass additionally draws a number of smudges/fingerprints.

The rest of the system (facets, palmrest, backside) feels very top rate with cool brushed steel surfaces in iron grey. They’ve controlled to healthy in a thirteen.9-inch display in a form element that commonly homes a 13.Three-inch show. The top and side bezels across the screen are thinner however the backside bezel is quite hefty. To be honest, it also offers you space to maintain the system when in pill mode. A marvel addition is an lively stylus that slots into the gadget itself. The stylus works properly, has left/ proper click on buttons, is touchy to tilt/pressure and costs while housed in its silo. But it’s far a tad smaller than the usual stylus.

The rotating soundbar in this pc is primary. Normally, the audio system faces the person however whilst you turn to tent or tablet mode, the sound is directed far from you. The soundbar inside the Yoga C930 is a part of the hinge itself so it doesn’t block the sound. Why has no person thought of this earlier than? There are a total of 4 Dolby Atmos audio system inside the device: two tweeters inside the soundbar and down-firing speakers in the base of the gadget.

The keys are slightly concave, nicely spaced and the texture is right — even though key travel is less than what you would get on a larger pc. They additionally have even white backlighting with tiers of brightness adjustment. Coming to the screen, our overview unit was a 4K IPS panel with touch and Dolby Vision upgrades. We observed that the display screen has hues that pop and deeper comparison — amazing for all styles of multimedia.

As for ports, we weren’t watching for a lot from a thin & light (1.4kg) convertible but have been amazed to see an enormous USB 3.1 port. It additionally has a 3.5mm mixture audio jack and USB kind C ports (both Thunderbolt). It also expenses through USB-C and the adapter is rated at 65 watts.

Performance from the Core i5 is right for all sorts of use (even mild gaming), helped along by way of the rapid flash storage and sufficient RAM. It supplies correct battery life too: between nine to 10 hours on WiFi with everyday use.

If you’re searching out a top class convertible laptop, we additionally like HP’s Spectre x360. There are two sizes available (13.3 and 15-inch) in more than one configurations. The Spectre 15-inch is inexpensive, has a unique layout, steel lid and offers better specs (Core i7 8th gen, 16GB, 512GB, 4K IPS contact panel, Radeon RX vega M graphics) for Rs 1,67,000.
