    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.

    Power without being bogged down with MS!

    Use with apps

    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.

    A fast, strong computer system

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery, Design, Speed

    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.

    I’m kind of a screen nerd. like the screen on this one. Gets just bright enough. Color is excellent. Good contrast. I had the Chromebook x360 14 inch and found that display to be dim, drab and colorless. I hated it. But this one is enjoyable. I also like the bigger 15.6 size. Really expands your real estate when you go into settings and display and change the scaling. The speakers are meh. I do wish, for such a big laptop, why not put some good speakers in here? They're downward firing and don't sound great. Dialogue might be better than music. The keyboard feels and looks good but needs more travel but I’m getting used to it. The trackpad is very good. Very smooth and scrolls fast. Very responsive. Touchscreen is great but it does wobble a bit when you poke it - probably because it’s a yoga. The build quality is excellent. Feels premium because it is. Sleek and fits in a business environment. Performance: You won’t be able to slow this down. It’s got ample processing power and memory. Decent selection of ports. It’s also a helluva deal if you can get it on sale or open box. I got mine for under $500 open box. Summary: I really like this laptop. It makes a great desktop replacement. I setup my Windows desktop for Chrome Remote Desktop and I can remote into when I need to to manage it for Plex. I enjoy the quickness and simple interface of ChromeOS. I get sick of Windows and enjoy using other operating systems. I hope ChromeOS continues to grow because I believe in and support cloud computing. Great laptop!

    Backlit keyboard

    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

    Solid Device But Needs Some Updates To Be Best

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery, Display, Speed
    Cons mentioned:
    Keyboard, Speakers

    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.

    Elegance and Power

    Pros mentioned:
    Battery, Design, Display

    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.

    Cons mentioned:
    Backlit keyboard, Speakers

    Pros: - Solid, premium feeling construction. - Comfortable, solid keyboard, even though it isn’t backlit. - Excellent specs, with a Core i5, 8Gb of RAM and 128Gb storage - Clear, bright 15.6” display - Excellent battery life under light - moderate use - The legacy USB-A connector is nice to have for plugging in legacy devices, like an external webcam. Cons: - Poor speaker quality. The speakers are mounted on the underside and downward firing. - Horrible webcam, with very poor light sensitivity. - No Backlit Keyboard (I actually got used to it, though). I purchased the Yoga C630 Chromebook the last time it went on sale at Best Buy. It was a toss-up between the Lenovo, or the identically specc'ed HP Chromebook 15. Its primary use right now is for my son to use during the day for accessing Google Classroom to do his schoolwork while schools are closed. On sale at $150 off, I felt it was worth getting as an upgrade from our existing Chromebook, a three year old Asus C302, which while great when it was new, is beginning to feel a little slow First things first: There is no backlit keyboard. And that was really annoying at first, especially since the contrast between the characters on the keys and the rest of the keyboard isn’t the highest. The Asus has black keys against a silver body, and they’re backlit. But you know what? I got used to it. After a couple of days of use, I really don’t notice it much at all anymore, unless the lights in the room are turned down really low. But as for the keyboard itself, backlight not withstanding, The keyboard has an excellent feel to it. It is easy to type on, and the keys have a nice, solid feel. This thing is big, and I actually like it. I was a little worried initially that a 15.6” Chromebook might be a little too big, and maybe something along the lines of a 14” would be better. I couldn’t be happier though. Even at four pounds, it really doesn’t feel too heavy considering its size. And the display is bright and crisp. Indoors, it is plenty bright at about 75% brightness. Cranked all the way up, it’s really bright. The old Asus now feels downright tiny now by comparison, at 12.5”. Battery life so far has been excellent. Under light - moderate use during the day, it is easily reaching 8 hours of use, and still has plenty of battery to spare. My previous Chromebook was starting to fall down on this as well. And the Yoga has really, really good specs. An Intel Core i5, 8Gb of RAM, and 128Gb of eMMC make this Chromebook fly. It does have a fan for active cooling, but under normal use, you’re never going to hear it. And ChromeOS updates are guaranteed from Google on this model until June 2025. There are of course a couple of downsides to this Chromebook, which are the typical things almost all Chromebooks, and laptops in general tend to suffer from. The speakers are not very loud, and the sound quality isn’t all that great. There are only two speakers, and they’re located on the underside of the device, and downward firing. So the sound primarily gets sent into whatever surface it’s laying on. Also, the built-in webcam is pretty bad. Even in bright light, you get a dim, grainy image. Not very useful for video conferencing. These aren’t really deal breakers for me. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

    Loved it for 1st four months, then issues keep creeping up. Sound level @ max now 50% of previous. Camera function and microphone are inaccessible in settings and function intermittently in Zoom and Microsoft meetings. Laptop freezes up periodically for no apparent reason and the shutdown/restart process is difficult in that frozen state. Quiet fan rarely runs, nice bright screen. Battery lasts a long time , although it has a modern 10th gen chip many google/android apps are not designed to function on this unit.

    The best 15.6 Chromebook on the market

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery, Display, Price
    Cons mentioned:
    Keys, Speakers, Use with apps

    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.

    I'm a teacher and have been using my school issued chromebook, which has been fine, but it's small. Knowing that I'm going to be teaching virtually again for a while, I decided that I really wanted something bigger. This 15 inch Chromebook has been AWESOME. I've been using it for Professional Development training and zoom meetings already and it has made a world of difference! Plus, now I'll be able to use 2 Chomebooks when I teach, I'll us the school issued one to sign in on meetings with my personal email account and I'll be better able to see what the kids are seeing. So glad I made this purchase!

    Long time Chromebook user, finally switched from the $200 models to something more powerful. Bought for school but also own a business and this computer has been great for both. 15" monitor was big at first but now nice to help with eye strain, love I can use as a tablet as all my books are online. Fast processor and great multitab function. Would definitely buy again

    I can't say enough good things about this machine! I bought it for traveling and general office duties so I could get a few more years out of my 15" Macbook Pro for creative work. Bought this instead of a new 13" Macbook (because most of my office work is now cloud based, not Mac-centric) and it's awesome! Only thing that could possibly make this better would be back-lit keys. Of all the Chromebooks and other touch-based Android devices I've owned, this one is definitely the best. NOTE: This is the only Yoga tablet that cannot make use of all the cool Lenovo active stylus options. That might be the only other option that would make it better.) Maybe the $1000+ Chromebook options are all that I wished for, but if I was going to spend that much money, I would've stay in MacLand.

    Pros mentioned:
    Display, Speed
    Cons mentioned:
    Keyboard, Keys, Use with apps

    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

    The build quality of this laptop is undeniable. Unfortunately, it is held back by a limited OS. I know that there are fans of the Chrome OS environment, but as a power user I would not be able to use this as a daily driver.

    I'm a teacher who uses Google products extinsevely in the classroom, especially now with the pandemic. I needed a fast chromebook to get my work done and monitor student progress. I wanted something fast, and I wanted a larger monitor.....which is something that chromebooks don't have sometimes. This monitor is great, and the core i5 really helps the computer movie quickly. I am very satisfied.

    Quality is good. Seems well built. The tablet feature and screen size are very nice. Value is very good considering the processor speed and memory. Ease of use is acceptable during the day or in a bright room. We just sat down to work with the laptop and were immediately disappointed by the fact that someone somewhere at Lenovo chose not to include a backlit keyboard. For the price, quality and value a backlit keyboard would have put this unit over the top. (BTW: I'm using a cellphone to type this review because it's dark in the room and I can't see any of the keys on the laptop.) If you have units like cellphones and tablets where you can see letters, numbers, and symbols, you will be disappointed by this model of Lenova Chromebook. To the Lenovo designer: why leave out the backlit keyboard??????????

    Missing A Key Feature

    Posted .

    I really like this 2-in-1 unit. It's quick to load and ready to start in a few seconds. Not having Windows on it does take some getting used to but I quickly found that it wasn't a problem. It does have a couple of drawbacks though. First, as a 2-in-1 unit, I expected a pen option to be available, but there isn't one, even on the manufacture's website. You can get a rubber tip stylus for it though. I'm just not sure I like having to keep up with it especially when other models do have one integrated in to them. Second, this unit is very heavy to hold in tablet mode. The unit folds in half and the keyboard turns off automatically so you can use it in tablet mode which I really like but it's heavy to hold. If you don't need a pen or don't mind keeping up with a separate one and you don't mind the weight, I definitely recommend this unit.
