    Chromebooks are pretty amazing and after Google introduced their idea of a premium device many others have followed in suit. This Yoga chromebook is pretty great and I am glad that I have it. It is a step up from my previous device which had just half the specs this Yoga has to offer. That being said lets have a detailed look into the Lenovo Yoga chromebook 15.6. :::Hardware::: The Yoga CB has a lot to offer the screen is a FHD touchscreen display that has great colors and is a great size at 15.6. While this display size may be too big for some it is just right for those who have visual impairments. An 8th generation Intel i5 Quad core CPU is under the hood and oh boy is this fast. I was unable to slow down this Yoga CB no matter what I was doing thanks to the 8GB of DDR 4 Ram that works in tandem with the i5. As far as storage goes there is 128GB of on board storage. I really appreciate that because of the ability to install android apps they do tend to take up a lot of disk space due to the constant app updates. I put in a 128GB micro SD card and that just adds more storage who doesn't like having expandable storage? You will find a full size USB 3.0 port, & two USB C ports and a headphone jack. The Yoga CB is crafted out of Aluminum and is a little heavier when compared to other CB.It is 4lbs and you definitely feel how hefty this CB is in the hand. The Aluminum feels great but is somewhat of a finger print magnet. Dual band Wi-Fi is available, and Wireless AC speeds which are awesome should your home network support it. I have managed to get 8 to 8 & 1/2 hours of battery life with my mixed use.It is great not having to be tethered to a charger all the time.With the recent update to Chrome OS you now have access to a few features such as "Night Light" which is easier on your eyes in the night hours which essentially does away with blue light. Keyboard and track pad are solid. There is a good amount of travel on the full sized keyboard and the keys do not stick but they are loud though but that doesn't really bother me. What did bother me is the fact that the keyboard is not backlit. Speakers are down firing and are located under the CB. That is not such a bad thing but I suppose my Lenovo Yoga book with the sound bar spoiled me as I now prefers that speakers not be in the bottom of my devices. The speakers are plenty loud and sound good I keep it at about 50-65%. The web cam is decent I rarely find myself ever using it. :::Pros & Cons::: Pros: - Fast 8th generation Intel i5 - Generous 128GB of storage - Fast DDR 4 2400 RAM - FHD display is has good colors and is bright enough for me. - Expandable storage - Aluminum body Cons: - No backlit keyboard TL:DR This Yoga CB is a solid device no one can deny that. It is fast and has great hardware as far as CPU, RAM and memory goes. I love my Yoga I only found one minor thing that I did not like. This is comparable to the Pixel line of Chrome books but at a better price. While this CB is a little big and heavy it is still something I recommend you consider if you like 15 inch devices.

    Solid Device But Needs Some Updates To Be Best

    The chromebook was packaged neatly and was quick to get up and running once unboxed. It comes with a 45W USB-C charger. I tried my phone’s charger (10W) and it actually worked. Slow, but it worked. So, if you’ve got your phone charger and forget the chromebook’s, all is not lost! It has a regular USB port, the USB-C charging port, and audio jack on the right side of chromebook, a USB-C port (which can also be used for charging), micro sd slot, power and volume buttons on the left. They keyboard also has keys to control brightness, volume (including mute), lock, browser forward/back, android forward back, full-screen toggle, and button to toggle all the open apps. The screen is pretty nice though when watching 1080p content, the lack of additional pixel density makes the screen not look as nice as something with similar pixel count but on a smaller screen. I suppose that’s a tradeoff though being a chromebook, one may not have too much in the way of customizing the DPI with which things are rendered as you would on a typical OS. The speakers are good. The grills open out the bottom of the chromebook which seems strange. Volume wise, I was pleased in a quiet environment. A slightly noisy one really drowns out the speakers, even at full volume. It’s really strange how that seemed to work. The keyboard size and spacing is a bit weird given that you have the chassis of a 15” laptop. There’s a decent amount of bezel so the yoga is plenty wide. The keyboard itself is narrow which makes for a smaller typing area than you’d expect. Furthermore, the keys themselves are on the small side which leads to above average mistakes, especially when keys at the first and last couple columns are involved. The keyboard is also not backlit which mostly isn’t an issue but is annoying if you’re ever typing in the dark. Build quality is pretty good with no flex in the base. The screen didn’t feel as strong and the force threshold I was comfortable applying was much less. Still, the weight distribution is pretty good and when propped on a lap or bed, only starts to topple if the screen angle is toward a particular extreme. The chromebook can be used in tent mode. Essentially, you flip the screen all the way to the other side. This disables the keyboard and puts in in touch only mode. This also flips the screen orientation, though still in landscape, so that you can let the screen and base make a tent to prop up the chromebook. Given how well it plays back video, this can be a pretty useful mode, especially while traveling. Screen orientation can be manually controlled via settings so one can set it to a portrait orientation The chromebook is capable of running android apps. My usual daily apps all have web applications so I mostly didn’t bother. Where having Android will come in handy is to replace things that you’d normally install via a desktop app on a laptop - dropbox for example. While I’m sure, many chromebook users are fully integrated into the google ecosystem, having the ability to make use of alternatives is nice. For me, the chromebook is a strong contender to replace my current laptop with one major weakness - it’s not powerful enough for my engineering work. While remote desktop could solve that, there are enough times that I need to completely work locally or without a VPN connection that that chromebook simply can’t be a complete replacement. I also have some desktop apps (crypto wallet for example) for which there simply isn’t a Android version. To that end, I’ll still need a home machine. Using remote desktop with a headless machine at home to get around these two issues is tempting. Now, I really need to consider just how often I travel and need to work without internet access. Printing worked though setup had a bit of a hiccup. I was able to add the printer both to the chromebook and to google cloud print. The cloud print setup had me confirm the setting on the printer itself. But after that, nothing printed, either via the direct printer setting in the chromebook, google cloud print, or my tablet/laptop which had been previously setup and has printed many times before. After rebooting my printer, everyone was happy and I got three copies of the same document. Battery life is pretty nice. I didn’t perform a true run-down test, but the battery life I got was easily 3X my current tablet/laptop. Given that most of my use at home is not work related, this is a pretty significant improvement. My 8.4 inch android tablet usually handles weekend browsing and reading. With a 12 hour battery life, it’s good for a typical weekend’s use, especially when paired with my normal phone use and the times I want to hop on my current tablet/laptop for the more “desktop” experience. The chromebook’s longevity makes it a strong contender to completely replace the 8.4” tablet and laptop over a weekend and only requiring me to connect the charger at the end of a day. While it can’t replace the 8.4” for mobile gaming, the weight and ease of use make it compelling for almost everything else that I used the android tablet to accomplish. I’ve already complained about the keyboard input. Touch is nice and works well. I need to look into changing the default touch screen keyboard - it doesn’t feel optimized for such a large screen, but otherwise it is adequate. I wish I could use the on-screen keyboard without being in tent mode - perhaps there’s a setting for that but it’s not immediately obvious. I was pleased with the performance of the chromebook under light to medium web browsing loads. With the Core i5 processor, it feels much more fluid and responsive than the Core i7 in my desktop OS running tablet/laptop. However, with a heavy tab load, the chromebook quickly bogs down where the other machine would slow, but still keep up. While I’m sure that the i5 in this chromebook is more geared towards power efficiency, this is still a bit disappointing. This situation doesn’t necessarily occur that often for me as I typically keep things down to around 10 tabs or less, when I’m researching something or comparing various options, the amount of tabs I open can skyrocket and being able to switch between them easily to compare and contrast is important. Overall, I think this is solidly three stars and stretching towards 4. Perhaps 3.5 stars is a better indicator of where this belongs. There are some issues, none are deal breakers, but the combination does make the chromebook a compromise, regardless of the promise contained.

    Detailed Look

    I've been looking through different Chrome Books trying to find a replacement for my old chrome book as it is over 3 years old and won't get some of the new features that I want out of the Chrome OS. With this said, I read many reviews before taking the chance on this particular Chrome Book. The initial review that sparked my interest is how the review compared this Pixel Book which is a high comparison given Google's dedication to the platform shown in that system. I have not owned a Pixel Book, but have read many reviews on it. With this said, let's go into the review: 1) Look and Feel: Compared to the Chrome Books I have owned in the past and many I have seen, I love the premium feel of it. It has a great smooth alloy feel to the outside. It has that industrial look that I love and not the cheaper feel of the plastic used on some of the Chrome Books. I have had it for over a week and opened it in various positions and tested the different modes. In each of the Yoga positions, the device looks wonderful. It switches positions with an ease I expect, but is sturdier in each position than I originally anticipated given it's weight. It is much lighter than my old Chrome Book. I have had no issues with any defects on the device. 2) Screen/Touch: The touch screen has been very responsive in all of the tests. This includes on Linux Apps, Android Apps, and Chrome Apps. The screen is much larger than my previous chrome book and is beautiful. The resolution of this device is amazing. You can definately tell it is a high definition screen and the crispness of it impresses me. I saw on a review earlier a complaint about being able to see pixels on browsing. I've used both the native Chrome and Android web Apps like Firefox Focus and have no idea what they were complaining about. The only issue I can see is that some of the Android Apps do not full screen well which is a known issue on any Chrome Book. Other than that, resolution makes the text a bit small at times, but it is typical of HD screens at this resolution. I've used the magnify feature on Chrome to help with this on some pages and the crispness has been great. 3) Performance: I have opened Linux Apps, Android Apps, and Chrome Apps simultaneously and the experience has been smooth. Minus the expected time to load multiple apps at the same time, it all runs quickly and is very responsive. There is no unexpected delays in it's performance 4) Battery Life: When you run the laptop continuously with apps running from all 3 platforms it will drain the battery quicker, but this should be expected. I've drained the battery in this device multiple times and the running time has been 8+ hours on each attempt with me multi-tasking. The charging for this device is a USB C plug which is very convenient as it is also the same as the LG V20 phone I have. 5) Wifi Connectivity: Some of the devices I have owned over time has struggled in this component. I was not expecting LTE (and it's not included) so I won't make any comments on that. I didn't buy this for LTE. The Wifi was able to quickly pick up both on the 2G and the 5G bands of common wifi systems. The signal strength has been excellent no matter where I have been in relation. It has exceeded my expectations in this category. For example, in my bedroom which is at the opposite side of the house from my Wifi Router normally gets about 2 bars for my other wifi enabled devices including my phone and other Android/Google devices. The Wifi Modem in this device allows it to be "strong" even in there. Overall: To get a good feel of any device, it is always recommended to spend more than 30 minutes with it especially if you want to know the ins and outs of something. Having taken a week of use with me using it as my primary computing device and trying to find faults, this device is one that I think will exceed your expectations of what a Chrome Book will be if you have been using others Chrome Books other than the Pixel Book. Will this device be able to compete against the Pixel Book? Short answer. Yes. For me, it was between this 2 in 1 and the Pixel book. The price comparison gives this one the edge and given how much I love this Chrome Book, it is hard for me to justify the extra money on what might be. It does what I want, what I might want to do, and what I need to do. Lenovo has done well making this device and impressed me. I am happy to say that I have found my new Chrome Book for years to come. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a performance computer at a fair value. Will it kill the Pixel Book? No. But why should it? It competes nicely and for that I am glad. Keep up the good work Lenovo!

    Elegance and Power

    The Lenovo Yoga Convertible Chromebook is elegantly designed to function as either a powerful laptop or tablet. It has the system memory, feature set, and processing power to handle my daily productivity and entertainment needs with ease. --Setup-- Was as simple as charging it for a short time and turning it on. I was then prompted to sign on to my Wi-Fi network and then Google. I already have a Google account, so my saved settings synced right up, and I was up and running immediately. Included is a 45-watt power brick that attaches to a USB C charging cord. Because USB C is becoming widespread I don’t have to bring the power brick with me on the go and can instead charge it with the same power adapter that I use for my phone, wireless earbuds, and Bluetooth speaker. Using a phone or tablet power adapter will charge slower but is a useful trade off for the added versatility. --Design and Features— There are four different modes: Notebook, Stand, Tent, and Tablet. I found the Stand, Tent, and Tablet orientations to be especially useful for watching videos and using Apps. The display orientation automatically adjusts when the laptop is transformed to a different mode. Lenovo cleverly placed one USB C port on both the right and left side. Both can take a charge, so the charging side can be adapted to the side has an available power outlet. The battery charges fully in a few hours and lasts the rated 10 hours. The flash hard drive greatly improves the system speed. If you have never used one before you will immediately notice the improvement as opposed to a solid state hard drive. The screen is 1080P HD capable. The color, contrast, and sharpness are superb. Exactly what I would expect at this price point. The touch screen is responsive and works well. Above the numbers keys are a row of dedicated shortcut keys. They are: Back, Forward, Reload, Full Screen, Switch, Brightness Up/Down, Mute, Volume Down/Down, Lock, and Search. The dual band wireless adapter worked flawlessly and was able to provide a very strong connection. --Build Quality and Appearance— The build quality is impressive. The aluminum chassis makes it thin, light, and easy to handle. The color (midnight blue) is a very attractive blue/gray hue. --Verdict— Equipped with processing power and system memory that far exceed the minimum requirements for the Chrome Operating System, this hybrid laptop/tablet is an excellent choice for the user that wants premium performance, capability, and features.

    Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630

    So, I've been testing out this Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 for the last 5 days or so and it's decent at best. First off, it arrived really fast. Selected on Wednesday and got it on Friday. Upon opening the package I noticed that the laptop was not as secure as I thought it was. Only thing inside was the power cable, and a folded poster size user guide (single sheet). That was it. Very basic packaging and very basic instructions that fit all on one piece of paper. Powering up the Chromebook is pretty self explanatory. Once it loaded up, to get started I logged in under my gmail email and voila it was ready to go. Very simple and very basic which is not necessarily a bad thing. If you've ever updated the Google Chrome browser before, updating this Chromebook follows the same process as it's built completely around Chrome and Android. Browsing and connecting to the internet was just as easy and any other laptop. The Yoga C630 can flip into different positions from the standard laptop position to using it as a tablet. Google Play store, as well as Books, Games, Movies, and Music are all pre-installed as well as Google Drive, YouTube, Gmail, and Google Docs, Photos, etc. You can download other apps and programs via the Google Play store that are compatible with this laptop. You can also download and install extensions for the Google Chrome Browser Battery life was surprisingly good. I usually stay on power cord on my laptops but just to test how long it could go I unplugged it yesterday and got a pretty decent amount of time without having to worry about plugging it back in anytime soon. It lasted almost all day, which is good considering my day was over when it needed to be charged again. And speaking of charging, charging time seemed to be around a couple of hours or so. Not very long if that. Another area that makes this Chromebook shine is the amazing Full High Definition display. Any high-def wallpaper looks amazing on this screen. I also like the fact that it also for an open and clear work-space on the desktop. Great for displaying pictures of your family and/or pets without those great shots being hidden behind tons of icons. One area that I think Lenovo fell flat in was audio quality. At top volume level, the sound quality of the speakers on this laptop is very very low. Almost non-existent. Not sure if this is a simple software issue or a hardware issue. The speakers are located on the bottom of the laptop (when its in standard position). This may be a dealbreaker for some, however, can be remedied by having a small bluetooth speaker. Keyboard response is pretty spot on, however, keys tend to get greasy somewhat. I do wish the keyboard layout was a tad wider for my large hands but I got used to its layout fairly quickly. However, this particular model has one downside that I absolutely hate, and that's not having a Backlit Keyboard. I searched and searched and searched over the last few days thinking I must have missed it somehow, but according to the specifications, this particular model lacks that feature. I do not understand why Lenovo chose to leave that feature out on this model. Makes it harder to use the laptop in the dark unless you have a small desk lamp nearby. A couple other perks of this laptop are the addition of 2 USB-C ports, a regular standard USB port, along with a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack. A high definition camera with microphone are also front and center at the top of the laptop. The volume rocker and power buttons are on the right side of the laptop. I would recommend this laptop for a first time Chromebook user or anyone looking for something without all of the bells and whistles that come other major laptops. This will also make are great computer for someone in high school or starting out at college. Decent overall, just need some tweaking on the sound quality.

    What's in the box ----------------- Lenovo Yoga C630 2-in-1 15.6" Touch-Screen Chromebook - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 128GB eMMC Flash Memory Power adapter Ports ----- 2 x USB-C USB 3.0 MicroSD slot Headphone/mic combo Pros ---- 1. Its very well built all aluminum design. Its is slightly heavier than the 15 inch macbook pro 2. Gorgeous Full HD screen with almost edge less display 3. Excellent Battery life 4. Very fast, its my first time with chrome OS, the combination of the OS with SSD makes this blazing fast. 5. Google Play apps. Cons ----- 1. No back lit keyboard 2. Need more USB ports. 3. No HDMI port. The Review ---------- This is my first time using chrome OS/Chromebook and i have to admit that i have been pleased. I was not sure why the earlier versions of the laptops that came out with this OS were really cheaply made. I think that Chrome is a good operating system and the stigma associated with the OS that its a brick offline is no longer true. I can use my google docs, play movies, songs etc all offline and once i connect online, the data syncs up with the cloud. I also get 100GB of free cloud for 2 years with this laptop. Setup - It was very straight forward as it is on an android phone, everything ties to your email and you setup the machine using your email address. Installing apps from play store works the same way as your phone. Usage - The laptop is very well built and it can be used as a regular laptop or a tablet as it is touch screen. it also can be used in tent mode for watching movies. Track pad and the keyboard quality is comparable to my Dell Inspiron and i think it will last long. The Intel i5 along with the chrome OS with 8GB of RAM really makes it powerful. I can run multiple tabs on chrome running different applications and it performs very well without any lag. My son loves talking tom run and installed it for him. The performance on the game was very smooth. I am pleased. The battery life is very good, much better than the dell inspiron 7000 that i currently also own. i was able to get 8 hours out of the battery. Charging is through a type C port and there are one on either side. I could use my phone charger to charge it so its very convenient. I wish there were more USB ports on this as laptop thankfully there is a micro sd slot and you can buy a 256gb micro sd card and increase the hard drive just in case you run out of cloud space. Finally, i think lenovo came out with a very usable, sturdy and worthy chromebook. i will recommend it!

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo C630 Chromebook. With regard to more USB ports for this device, you may want to consider using a USB Hub with this device. The USB-c port on this configuration carries a video out signal. You can use a USB-c to HDMI adapter to connect an external HDMI monitor. Lenovo

    Hello, I am totally sold on the Lenovo C630 Chromebook. When I first looked at it at Best Buy, I was basically looking at some cheaper HP and Samsung models, just to test out and learn on. But the Customer Service agent "Steve" did a great job of working with me and possibly giving me the feedback that I needed to make this purchase. I initially looked at the battery life as a concern because most of the cheaper systems were stating above 12 hours of battery life, while the Lenovo only showed up to 10 hours. After taking the product home, I guess during the first week or so, this Lenovo C630 Chromebook averaged over 12 hours every time. A few times I took screenshots, because it was getting all the way up to 17:30. That was when I forwarded my screenshots to Lenovo. I also went back to the Best Buy store and "Steve" was hoping nothing was wrong with the device, to his complete amazement, he was totally delighted to hear the excellent functionality of the device. The device is really fast and has a lot of features. I really did and do like the Bluetooth 4.1 option for me to hear other than the built in speakers. The speakers are okay, just that they are on the bottom, and an external bluetooth speakers just enhances the video and audio playback greatly. My only downside to this unit is, it does not come with a "Backlit Keyboard" and if you like your product the way it is out of the box, for heaven sake "DO NOT RUN THE UPDATE" !!! If you are into the Goth aspect, then it won't matter, but if you like the Clean setup that Lenovo ships the product as, don't click on restart for update. The Core i5 processor with the onboard 128gb of storage, and the I/O's upgrade ability of the Micro SD card, there is a lot of room for improvement. I recently purchased an additional 512gb sd card to put in it along with purchasing an external WD Pro Passport Wireless Storage Device, and an Altec Bluetooth External speaker, that synced right up. The setup is pretty much straight forward, and after a month I am super happy with this device. Like I said, if it had Backlit Keys, It would have gotten 5 stars. Enjoy

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga C630 Chromebook. This configuration actually does ships with a backlit keyboard. To turn on the backlighting try this: 1. Locate the alt and the screen brightness adjustment buttons. 2. Press and hold down on the alt key. 3. Tap on either the screen brightness up or down buttons. Lenovo

    I’ve been a steady macOS user for many years now. My main computer has been the 2016 MacBook Pro for the past couple of years now and while I end up using a Windows machine at work and sometimes a Windows machine at home for various tasks, macOS is my standard operating system of choice. With that said, I do enjoy learning other systems and exploring what different operating systems have to offer. I’ve been most intrigued with Chromebooks since that system makes you operate almost entirely ‘in the cloud’. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to use a Lenovo Yoga laptop and so when the option to try out the Lenovo C630 Chromebook, I jumped at it. Lenovo makes a solid machine and I was eager to test it out. STYLE: The laptop feels awesome. The keyboard is responsive and the body of the computer is substantial. The laptop does have a bit of weight to it, but it looks sleek and it is still quite portable. PERFORMANCE: I will typically run a benchmarking software with a new system, but because the Chromebook is web-based, I was unable to install anything to check any benchmarking scores. I did end up finding an online option for benchmarking called Octane. There was a note on the website that mentioned that Octane had been discontinued and even though I was able to get a score from it, I’m not sure how accurate the score is or where it makes the system stand up against other laptops. I ran several apps and used the cloud-based apps (Google Docs, etc.) for several hours and found that the Chromebook was blazing fast. The system was very responsive and didn’t hesitate to do anything I asked it to do. BATTERY LIFE: I have been very happy with the battery’s performance. While I haven’t used the laptop for 10 hours straight yet, I have used it for several hours at a time and found that power wasn’t a problem. TOUCHSCREEN: While I really enjoy having the touchscreen as an option, it is not very practical for tasks other than scrolling and drawing. It is quite responsive, and I would even liken it to an iPad’s touch screen, but typing on it just isn’t very practical. Overall, the Lenovo Yoga C630 is a very capable laptop. I really love how the ChromeOS makes you rethink how your workflow is structured. I love utilizing cloud services and a Chromebook definitely makes you rethink that.

    Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 review My initial impression of the Yoga Chromebook was that it was very nice to have the extra couple of inches over my Samsung Chromebook Plus. The keyboard is roomy and the touchpad is large. I have come to rely on my Chromebook for many daily tasks such as sitting in my comfortable chair in the evening and reading email or surfing the web. As a teacher, I also use it and a Chromecast for my math classes to work problems for my students on a screen. I had gotten so used to the stylus that I didn’t even think about it when I got this machine. It didn’t take long to figure out how important that one feature had become to me! I like the blue color of the machine, not quite as refined as the metal color of the Plus, but it is different in a way that is not bad. I almost thought they had sent me a black one since I unboxed it in an area with low lighting and the blue is so dark. The screen has a nice brightness to it and has a lot of room. A couple of my apps render a little odd on this, but it is not unusable at all. I am not sure if it is the resolution or the screen size that throws them off. I figured it must be the resolution since my Plus has an even higher resolution. Fonts are crisp and web sites look very good. It has a small assortment of ports, even one more regular USB would be a welcome addition. By now I have resorted to plugging everything into a hub and then I have a single connection for legacy USB devices. Without the stylus, I have reverted back to a mouse since I have never felt that a touchpad is as natural - I guess it is just a preference I have always had. I think the body could have been a bit smaller had Lenovo decided to make the bezels a bit smaller. As it is, there is a decent border that just makes it look even bigger than it already is. The storage is massive for what I have come to expect from a Chromebook, 128GB is truly a luxury I have not had. I have not had too many apps that have heated it up and have had no issues or problems with it, not that I would expect to at this price. Speaking of price, I have to go back to the stylus thing… for a machine with these specs, I fully expected to have some form of decent pen or stylus that came with it or could be purchased to add to it. It is too bad that they decided to skimp on this one important area. I know many are going to question the need for that added expense, but all I can say is you need to use a Chromebook that has a good stylus and high resolution digitizer to really understand the totally natural use of a pen on the screen. Touchscreens naturally attract fingerprints (another thing the stylus does away with!) and this one is no different. It is easy to clean and so isn’t too big a deal. With all that real estate, it is very nice to be able to touch and use the pad to get around. Overall, I am happy with the machine, it runs everything a Chromebook should run without breaking a sweat, and looks good doing it. If only there were a way to add a stylus! Come on Lenovo, don’t sell this nice machine short.

    Power without being bogged down with MS!

    The Lenovo - Yoga C630 2-in-1 15.6" Touch-Screen Chromebook - Intel Core i5 - 8GB Memory - 128GB eMMC Flash Memory - Midnight Blue offers amazing power, usability, productivity, and accessibility all without being bogged down by a painful window-based OS. This Google OS Chromebook is fast and responsive, yet versatile enough to take on most of your computing needs. PERSONAL INSIGHTS I have always been reluctant to engage the Chromebook or Google OS due to so many applications and software being exclusively available on a MS OS. I was pleasantly surprised with the overall performance and accessability with this Yoga and how quick and responsive it was when I first turned it on. Complete 180 from the MS computer bog down that is typical for these systems. I liked the versitility of the Yoga having a laptop mode, tablet mode, and a hybrid as a tent display. The touch screen is easy to use and responsive, yet fingerprints will likely be a running issue. It is of solid construction, metal, compared to many competing devices which are primarily made of plastic and cheap feeling. PROS - Solid construction and design - Fast, Responsive OS - Google Play apps abound and most are free to use - Versitile designs allow for multiple uses - Lenovo name and quality - Huge 15.6" display with minimal bezel - Intel Core i5 is more than sufficient to power everything you can throw at it - 8GB RAM is fast and responsive - 128GB Flash memory is nearly instantaneous when accessing information stored on your Yoga - Micro SD slot lets to instantly expand your onboard storage - Cloud storage makes this devise torage limited only by your choice CONS - I am not a fan of the UBS-C type power cord and plug. I can foresee this being a problem and breaking with heavy usage. - Price seems a bit high for a Chromebook OVERALL An excellent device with tons of upward potential and long-term useage.

    To provide a little context, I am a MacBook Pro user for my main workstation, and I have purchased this chromebook for a secondary laptop for going to the Cafe, doing light work. I was looking for good performance, screen, and battery life. This laptop sure does deliver. The body is a solid piece of aluminum and honestly feels about the same as a MacBook Pro 15 for 4X less (Very impressive). i5, 8GB of ram combined with the light Chrome OS just absolutely blazes, this thing is an absolute beast in performance, feels as fast as a quad core i7 windows laptop due to it running chrome. Trackpad is super accurate not sticky. The keyboard is tactile with great feedback, not mushy and actually feels better than my 2018 MacBook Pro. It is not backlit but really not a big deal considering everything else this has it is worth the trade off. Speakers are okay not facing upwards. Color is not flashy but it has a nice finish. Weight is just over 4 pounds so not the heaviest thing, but not your ultra portable. This is about standard 15 inch weight. The display is great, not the brightest ever, but still very good and 1080 is enough for a laptop like this. Not everything is perfect though and the cons are this; not class leading chromebook battery life (this is due to the processor being much faster than most, therefore requiring more power) the body attracts a ton of finger oil and you will notice it from the first day you start using it. Some android apps are not properly optimized (but this goes for all chromebook) All in all, this is the best chromebook you can get if you want power, premium, and good design. Nothing even comes close in performance. Skip the Acer Spin 15, Dell inspiron 14 had both and both don't even come close to the Yoga overall. Good luck deciding hope this helped!

    Good but I traded it for Dell Inspiron Chromebook

    Good: I'm not aware of any other Chromebook you can buy with an 8th generation i5 and 8GB RAM for under $700. It's a lot of power for a Chromebook. The 15" display is pretty good and big. It's not Pixelbook level but it's good. Bad: Beyond the specification sheet the build quality isn't up to par when compared to the Dell Inspiron 14 Chromebook. The first thing I noticed is the track pad seems cheap on the Lenovo. I tried two units one on display at the store and the one I bought. The track pad isn't evenly leveled and has a noticeably larger drop off. It becomes evident when clicking the track pad near the bottom corners. The clicks sound louder than it should and feel flimsy. It feels like the trace pad wouldn't last past 2 years with my kid using it. The keyboard isn't illuminated and I can see traces of glue on the monitor panel. Why I chose the Dell Inspiron Chromebook (i3 4GB RAM) over Lenovo Yoga (i5 8GB RAM) even though there's only a $50 difference? Dell unit comes with a pen. The build quality of the Dell is better and the speakers are louder and clearer. The trace pad feels solid and the keyboard is illuminated. My wife thinks the Dell display looks a tad better in color. The Dell unit is smaller and making it more portable. Most importantly for my daily usage and benchmarks for CPU and RAM usage (signed with 2 users while using multiple tabs on each and watching a movie) Dell i3 fluctuates around 10-30% CPU usage. RAM usage is at about ~80% used. Lenovo fluctuates around around 5-20% CPU usage and ~55% RAM used. I would google "SWAP RAM Chromebook" if you're worried about RAM. From just using the Chromebook without looking at any benchmarks they would seem identical.

    I've had my C630 3 days now and still under evaluation but at first blush it’s the screen that jumps out literally. I really like the larger size for watching videos but using it like a 2-in-1 tablet isn't happening for me, it's just too big! If you travel much on airplanes as I do I’m not sure it would fit comfortably between you and the seat in front of you. I think if you take the mindset this is more of a Chrome based laptop with a touchscreen then this is right on the money! As far as the display itself I found both the colors clarity are quite good when doing side by side comparisons. Performance on the C630 is AWESOME! The unit doesn't get hot after being on all day long and in my lap all night long, it's also super quiet. I’ve loaded O365, used multiple cloud services and taxed the processor as much I could, let me tell you it handles everything you can throw at it and that’s super nice! I don’t do much artwork or video editing, so I can’t say if this will handle it. I believe the intended audience is more for business like users and streaming applications and that it does handle very well. Battery life is showing me about 8-9 hours with constant use with the display brightness all the way up (as I said I’m evaluating and would suspect something better if you tone that down some). The keyboard is fine for me for everyday typing but since switching to Chrome some of the new keys and shortcut’s take some getting used to but that’s the OS not the device. One suggestion is it needs a BACKLIT keyboard PEOPLE c’mon. Although if you tilt the screen forward slightly you can cast enough light with that huge display so it’s not totally bad. My biggest disappointment is not having LTE as was shared in the early release announcements. While the Wi-Fi performance is great as a business traveler I would rather have the option for WiFi or LTE for when I’m on the road and really the only reason I'd return it. Overall, it’s not a bad machine and if you’re upgrading from a smaller tablet or just planning to make the switch to a Chromebook you won’t be disappointed. If I could I'd give it a 3.75!

    The best 15.6 Chromebook on the market

    First impressions out the box for the Yoga C630 is the solid aluminum build and the size. It’s a big Chromebook that pack some serious horsepower. The CPU is an 8th Gen i5 8250u 4 Core 8 Threads. You also get 8gb of ram with 128gb of storage. Performance has been lightning fast with no slowdowns. Web pages load up fast with smooth scrolling. Apps like Atlas that run sloppy on Pentium equipped Chromebooks run smoothly on the Yoga Chromebook. 3D models load up fast and smooth when rotating them around or zooming in. 3D intensive Android games like Minecraft, GTA games or Asphalt it handles them like a champ. The Intel UHD 620 GPU is plenty fast for what’s out there in the Play Store. The laptop will get warm and you will hear the fans kick in when doing heavy stuff like gaming. Fan noise is minimal and so is the heat generated at the bottom panel of the laptop. Battery life is above average with mixed usage I managed to get around 5-7 hours before I got the low battery warning. This was a combination of web browsing, office work, streaming Spotify, YouTube/Netflix videos and gaming. The keyboard experience has been mostly good. The keys have good travel distance and feedback. My only complaint is the keys are loud for my taste and no backlit. Most laptops around this price point come with a backlit keyboard. The trackpad is good I don’t have any complaints about it. As for I/O ports, you get x2 USB Type C ports that can charge the device. 1 full-size USB 3.0 port on the left side and 3.5mm headphone jack. There is no HDMI port so you will need a USB C to HDMI cable for Tv Output. Overall the experience has been good over the several days I been using it. Lenovo first attempt to the big premium Chromebook market is a solid offering. I’m just glad that we now have a high end 15.6 inch Chromebook option. The Yoga C630 has been worth the wait. It has a premium look with a solid build quality and a good display. Unless backlit is a must you will not be disappointed with the Yoga C630 Chromebook.

    The Lenovo Yoga C630 2-in-1 is a really nice piece of productivity/entertainment equipment. It arrived packaged nicely (although I have seen nicer). Inside the box you'll find the laptop, charging cable, and some basic instructions. I'm typically a Windows guy so I was excited at the opportunity to try out an Chrome OS. While it takes a little getting used to, I found everything to be pretty easy to learn even for someone who's spent 20+ years in Windows + another 10+ years in apple based OS. So, most of you reading this should have no problem. The Yoga had excellent performance. Start-up was a quick and silent thanks to the SSD. Powered by Intel's latest (8th generation) i5 processor, the Yoga handled multiple apps open at the same time combined with web browsing, video, and some spreadsheet usage. The Yoga comes with 8GB of system RAM which is plenty for what most will use this system for. If 128GB isn't enough storage for you, the good news is that the Yoga's memory is expandable via a micro SD card. Is it going to be your go-to for CAD or power gaming? No. But it WILL exceed the needs for most users daily productivity and entertainment based tasks. To be clear, it is far more than just a tablet and shouldn't be confused with one even though it can fill that role if needed (hence the 2-in-1). Although this particular Yogo is 15.6" of FHD goodness, I found the design to be quite sleek and of particularly high quality. The aluminum frame gives it some weight (it's not feather light, but it's not a brick either). If you don't need the full 15.6, they do have a smaller version available. In conclusion, I am really enjoying using the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook. As my first venture into using the Chrome OS, I can say it has exceeded my expectations. Most applications are now web-based anyway, so the idea of holding onto my start menu is slowly being worn away. This system satisfies almost all of my needs for productivity and entertainment and for a really great price. Pros: *Design/quality build *Expandable memory *Beautiful FHD display *Battery life 9+ hours based on my testing, but rated for 10+ Cons: *No backlit keyboard *Speakers are down firing and of very average quality. Of course, one shouldn't really expect much from laptop speakers in my opinion.

    My Samsung S Tablet finally overheated and rebooted constantly after 5 years. With all the negative issues with samsung new tablets doing the same thing, I decided to buy this Lenovo C630 2 in 1 chromebook. Loving it so far I have it had for 2 months and no issues. Did get the extended best buy warranty just in case any issues arise, I use it mostly for gaming , music and watching videos. Pros Plenty of HD space and memory. Fast, Does not get hot, Battery last pretty good. Screen is bright and clear. Videos and Movies play good. Con's Keyboard needs the keys lit up for sure. I knew that purchasing it but I can deal with it. I had 2 games that will not load from Play Store due to device not compatible . I contacted App Maker never heard anything of course. Playing in om my cell for now. Touchscreen touch is not always really responsive or quick when swiping could be improved, but manageable. Bit heavy and I dont like flipping the screen around to use as a tablet as the keyboard is exposed underneath and I dont want to damage the keys or keyboard,, Been nice to have some cover to put over the keyboard for protection. So I use it as a laptop using the mouse pad and touch when gaming, Sits better in the lap this way. Some of my games will not go full screen neither, they are viewed as if you were playing on a cell phone. 4" width and to top and bottom of screen. Speakers could be better. Does not go very loud thru the laptop or , even when hooked up to a TV or sound system to play sirus or you tube music videos. Samsung was way louder, clearer and crisps sounding. I was looking for awhile on what to buy and I am glad I made this purchase. IBM has been around and is usually reliable product. So far I am impressed with this C630 and feel it was worth the $499 bucks. Got it on sale. 2 games I had issues with was Last Shelter Survival Sniper Hitman loaded from app store, but wont load keeps crashing.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga C630 Chromebook. With regard to the issues you are having with the games downloaded from the Google Play Store, The Yoga C630 Chromebook is compatible with APPs from the Google Play Store, but not all of the APPs there have been optimized for a Chromebook screen or the Chrome Operating System. It sounds like there is an issue with the two games that will not load with compatibility with Chrome. Concerning the APPs that are formatted for a phone screen, they are not yet configured for a Chromebook screen. Look for updates from the APP provider. The Yoga C630 Chromebook ships with a full size 15.6" (screen size measured diagonally) screen but only weighs 4.18 lbs. When in tablet mode, the keyboard and touchpad are automatically turned off so there can be no inadvertent entries. The Yoga C630 Chromebook ships with stereo 2W speakers. The Yoga C630 Chromebook is made by Lenovo. Lenovo purchased the PC Division of IBM in 2005. Lenovo

    This is my first foray from Windows into the ChromeOS world and I'm loving it. The C630 has a giant, crisp monitor that's a pleasure to use for both reading and watching videos. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could install most of the same apps I use on my Android phone. The C630 has plenty of SSD drive space and the processor makes everything run buttery smooth. It's large enough that I probably won't carry it around too much, but the battery life should be fantastic (spec says 25 hours). I'm pretty much leaving it parked in our breakfast nook area so it's plugged in most of the time. The only very minor issues I have with it involve the keyboard. I really wish it had a backlit keyboard. Even a $20 bluetooth keyboard I got to use with my phone a year ago had a backlit keyboard. The other issue is the keys are so flat it's sometimes hard to tell when you get your fingers in the correct home position. But these are really minor issues and I still think it's a fantastic Chromebook. The only other things that have given me pause are related to the ChromeOS so I can't blame the C630 for it. One is the lack of a delete key. There seems to be some religious discussion on both sides of the issue in the forums about that. The other is the wallpaper/desktop area seems to be wasted. You can't put any shortcuts to apps or URLs on it. On the other hand, this might be a good thing as my wife tends to completely fill up the Windows desktop with icons. If only this feature could be implemented in our home to prevent clutter on the counter tops, too! Overall, I'm very happy with the C630 and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for someone looking for a Chromebook with a nice, big screen.

    Was a little skeptical about a Lenovo machine, remembering way back when they were IBM ThinkPads. (Yes, I'm that old!!) Back then, they were heavyweight and slow. Great for bouncing around and capable, but not standouts. That said, this Yoga Chromebook is an outstanding machine. Large, crystal clear screen, fast processor, convertible machine that does everything and more. Because it is a ChromeBook, access to the Google Play Store for apps is a given and everything loads quickly and runs like a champ. Open the lid, which can be flipped to make this into a more than adequate touchscreen tablet, and by the time your eyes adjust to the brilliant screen (If it's not 4K, it's close!) you are up and running. Connection to wireless network(s) is painless and quick. I was a little leery about using it in tablet mode, but, except for the weight, it works very well. Touchscreen in any mode is a nice addition. Surprisingly, even closed, this machine looks good. Matte black finish with the YOGA logo just a hair darker looks sleek and stylish. Weight overall is a bit much for carrying around all day, but for home use, or to carry in a backpack or satchel, it is quite comfortable. Unless you REALLY need the big OS from MS or Apple, and who does anymore, or a large fixed drive, this machine will take care of most peoples needs and wants. May be a bit pricey for some, but for the 15.6" hi-def screen, Intel Core i5 processor and convertible aspect, it is well worth it. Wish I could have gotten more of these to hand out as gifts to family and friends!!

    I have two of these 2 in 1 type laptops/chromebooks. One from Lenovo and one from another brand with a smaller screen. I personally find the screen size of this laptop and it's use as a touchscreen to be too large.I wish it weighed a little less as it is quite heavy for the size of the laptop. The screen is great and gets a ton of use for Netflix/Hulu type services and the picture is always very clear. The sound from the speakers is great and it easily connects with my Bluetooth headphones for listening in quiet situations. I was pleased with the amount of android apps that were able to download but then quickly realized that a lot of the apps aren't made to work with screens this size or with 2 in 1s in general and ended up deleting the majority of the apps I downloaded as they just don't work well enough to take up space. The google chrome software took a few days to get used to but it is pretty intuitive for someone who hasn't used it before. The touchscreen is great and very responsive and after playing around with some settings to get the trackpad to scroll how I wanted I find I use that just as much as the touchscreen. I wish this had a backlit keyboard like my other 2 in 1 as I find I really miss that feature when switching between the two. The quality of this laptop feels sturdy and also has a very sleek look I've come to expect out of some of the newer laptops. All in all I think this is a great basic laptop, I'm not a gamer though and not sure how it would hold up to that type of daily use.

    I don't normally do reviews, but after seeing the first review posted, I feel obligated to respond. I also have a Pixelbook, and this Chromebook (and a Chromebook Plus). This device is well built. Mine was new out of the box, had no visible defects, and everything is working as expected. The screen is great, though if you really want tiny pixels, a 4K version of this Chromebook is available. I have no problems with this screen, either close-up, or watching videos from a distance (the viewing angle is very good). I run Chrome OS / Web apps, Play store apps, and Linux apps, all side-by-side. They all run well, even when running them all at once. This thing is snappy and performs extremely well. I use the smaller devices when I'm mobile and use this one mostly at home, where it works very well. I have no issues with the touch screen, either, it works fine, as does the touchpad. This price-point isn't for the casual browser user, but if you want to get all you can out of a Chromebook, this is an excellent choice.
