Lenovo has introduced its new Yoga C930 convertible notebook. Just like last year’s Yoga 920 PC, the new generation Yoga laptop is based on Intel’s 8th Gen Core i-series processor with four cores, however the C930 comes in a new CNC-machined aluminum enclosure that features a new 360-degree watchband hinge, as well as a Dolby Atmos-supporting soundbar.

The Lenovo Yoga C930 is powered by Intel’s Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U processors, which are paired with 8/12/16 GB of DDR4 memory. Storage is provided by a PCIe SSD, with Lenovo offering a range of capacities from 256 GB to 2 TB.

Just like the previous-generation Yoga 920, the latest model is outfitted with a 13.9” IPS display panel with very thin bezels, with a choice of either Ultra-HD (3840×2160) or Full-HD (1920×1080) resolutions. Meanwhile, the new LCD also supports Dolby Vision HDR. Furthermore, Lenovo equipped its Yoga C930 with a Dolby Atmos-supporting soundbar. Speaking of audio subsystem, the convertible laptop is also equipped with a far field microphone and supports Wake on Voice functionality.

When it comes to connectivity, the new Yoga C930 has an 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controller, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, as well as one USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-A port. In addition, the notebook has a fingerprint reader and a webcam with a privacy shutter.

From portability point of view the new Yoga C930 seems to be very similar to its predecessor, the Yoga 920. The system features a 14.5-mm z-height and weighs 1.38 kilograms (3.04 pounds). As for battery life, the Yoga C930 with a Full-HD display can work for 14.5 hours on one charge, whereas the Yoga C930 with an Ultra-HD screen can work for 9 hours.

Lenovo will start sales of its Yoga C930 in October, with prices starting at $1,399.99. Meanwhile creative professionals will want to take note that Lenovo will be bundling its new 4096-level stylus with the laptop, which may help tip the scales here.
