    Performance was good, but screen wasn't great quality, and I found the size to be a little cumbersome. Returned it and bought a Pixelbook.

    If you find yourself NOT using actual programs (. exe files) and really just using a laptop to surf the web and watch videos on YouTube, this is a solid alternative. It's a solid giant screen. Can be viewed like a normal laptop with the keyboard out, the keyboard can bend fully backwards to be held like a tablet (although the size of the whole chromebook makes it a big hunky laptop, especially with the keyboard folding behind), or can be tented to stand upright. The only real downside to me is the lack of a 10-key on the right hand side like a full sized laptop, resulting in the keyboard maybe not being in your usual spot.

      The Lenovo Yoga C630 Chromebook uses the Chrome Operating System. It is a Cloud Computing System, using APPs through the Google Server, free of charge. The Yoga C630 Chromebook is a 2 in 1 device with 360-degree hinges on the 15.6-inch, full size screen (screen size measured diagonally), but the overall dimensions of the computer are only: 14.23 x 9.80 x 0.70 inches and weighs just 4.18 lbs. The Yoga C630 Chromebook ships with a standard QWERTY keyboard, without a 10-key numeric pad. If you are looking for an ultra portable, 2 in 1 Chromebook, the Yoga C630 Chromebook is a great choice.

    It's a decent purchase if you need the larger scre

    I've 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's 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's 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.

    We use GSuite for Business at work so 99% of my work is done in Google Docs/Sheets etc and use Gmail and Google Meet. After meeting with my Google partner he sold me on the idea of giving a Chromebook a test. The Pixelbook, which he wanted me to buy, just didn't appeal to me with those big bezels. I looked around for Chromebooks using the new gen of intel chips and landed here. The learning curve was pretty small and I dont even use android, but I am tech oriented. The screen is large and very nice and the performance is rather snappy and spec wise its the best out there... but it is a BEAST! It is not very portable at all and very heavy. This is meant to sit on your desk at work and then at home. Because of the size and weight it does not make a great 2-1 because the tablet mode is awkward and again, heavy. If you are looking for a chromebook to sit on your desk and want a nice large media experience... this is your machine. If you travel or fly... this will not be a good choice. I would of loved this machine in a 13" more in the ultrabook category. Pros: -Screen quality -Worked out of the box with my Dell USB-C dock which had my Razer headphones, 2 monitors, Razer mouse, Cat-5 network connection, keyboard, and mouse. Even charged it quickly. -Performance -Build Quality Cons: -Huge (bigger than my 15" macbook pro) -Heavy -No Back-Lit keyboard Note- I ultimately exchanged for the Dell Inspiron 14" Chromebook

    Just not good

    I recently bought a pixelbook and am still in the return window for it. Initial hands on dubbed this machine a pixel killer at 300 bucks less. I decided to give it a whirl while I still had the opportunity to return the pixel. Right off the bat, I will tell you I will not compare this to the pixelbook because it's not even close. LOOK AND FEEL...its very plain and doesn't feel very premium at all. I had it for less then 2 hours and after opening and closing it maybe 5-6 times, I had already noticed chips in the paint where the two sides meet. I cant say if it came out of the box like that cause I hadn't noticed it. SCREEN/TOUCH...while I do love the larger screen from this computer, its absolutely underwhelming to look at. The screen is too large for its resolution and you notice the pixels as soon as you open up a webpage. The touchscreen is poor as well. It doesn't respond well to touch. I constantly clicked links and whatever else got in my way while trying to scroll a page. Even the feel of the screen was awkward and sticky while trying to swipe around. There's nothing here to like outside of the size. PERFORMANCE...This is really the only acceptable aspect of this laptop. Since chrome OS doesn't require much, any "premium laptop" running chrome will be able to breeze through anything you would want to do. OVERALL...it took me less than 25 mins to realize this was not the laptop for me and absolutely no pixelbook killer. I could not recommend this to anyone.

    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 isn't 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'd 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've 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'sn't 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 isn't 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's adequate. I wish I could use the on-screen keyboard without being in tent mode - perhaps there's a setting for that but it'sn't 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.
