Making its debut at theconference in Berlin is a fresh line of Yoga PCs from Lenovo, which now includes a premium Chromebook and a traditional clamshell laptop.
The highlight is no doubt the innovative dual-screen Yoga Book C930. This second-gen model arriving in October starting at $1,000 has a 10.8-inch 2560x1600-pixel resolution display and an E Ink display that becomes a keyboard with haptic and sound feedback, an e-reader and notepad when used with a new Bluetooth Wacom active pen. Here's our hands-on with the all-new Yoga Book C930.
If you prefer an actual keyboard, there's the Yoga C930, Lenovo's updated flagship consumer two-in-one laptop. The 360-degree watchband hinge found on past models include theis replaced with a rotating soundbar hinge with Dolby Atmos support that's meant to give you great sound regardless of how you position the screen.
Starting at $1,400 when it arrives in October, it'll be available with full HD or ultra HD 13.9-inch displays, both with Dolby Vision HDR support. The C930 will also include an active pen that charges when its stashed in its garage built into the back edge of the body.
The C930 will be joined in November by the Yoga C630 WOS, which stands for Windows on Snapdragon. In this case it's WIndows 10S running on an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile chipset. Lenovo says it will help get this fanless 13.3-inch full HD two-in-one more than 25 hours of battery life and with built-in LTE support, you're always connected. Here's hoping performance is zippier than the, especially with prices starting at $850.
Don't want a two-in-one, but like the Yoga line's premium design? Lenovo is adding the $1,000 Yoga S730 to family, which is a traditional 13.3-inch clamshell with a power-sipping full-HD display that still promises 300-nit brightness. Along with its efficient, Lenovo says it'll get up to 10 hours of runtime. It arrives in November.
Rounding things out are a trio of Chromebooks including Lenovo's first premium two-in-one, the Yoga Chromebook. (and , why not Lenovo?) Out in October and priced from $600, you'll get an all-aluminum 15-inch two-in-one with either a full-HD or ultra-HD-resolution display, a backlit keyboard and an eighth-gen Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of memory and 64GB of storage.
However, if you're firmly in the camp of "Chromebooks should be cheap," there are the $280 Chromebook C330 and $250 Chromebook S330. Running onprocessors, the C330 is an 11.6-inch two-in-one and the S330 is a 14-inch clamshell, both ready to run Chrome OS and Android apps out of the box. They arrive in October just in time for holiday shopping.
