    Top 2 in 1 but with a dim screen

    The laptop was fast and booted in a jiffy. Fingerprint login was a breeze after the setup and unlocked the laptop in a second or so (not accurately measured with a timer). The fans did kick in during software update or when copying 30+GB of songs but it was pretty quiet. Gets a bit warm under load but nothing alarming and cools off soon. Audio was very loud with or without Dolby Atmos; the novel soundbar design in the hinge helps. The laptop thundered at 100% volume overpowering a Vizio Dolby Atmos Soundbar (Soundbar at 35% volume and Laptop at 100%) and could be heard anywhere in the house; never have I heard a laptop so loud. The audio quality was good for a laptop; I couldn't bear the loudness at full volume and ran at around 50% or lesser most of the time except when testing the loudness. Screen is quite dim for a premium 2 in 1. During the day the display looks dim even at 100% brightness and the glossy screen reflects a lot; I could see my face as if in a mirror and was distracting from the content on screen. Battery life was good; I was able to get 8 to 10 hours on a single charge depending on usage. I could go with a single charge for two or three days at a stretch with some streaming, browsing and music. Webcam is okayish. Skype calls were grainy and the screen being dim didn't help either. The manual slider to close/open the webcam is a nice touch but the slider is in black (same as that of the top bezel) and hard to find in low light. The slider is so thin and I was afraid that I might break it or dislodge if I am not careful. The webcam doesn't have IR and can't be used for face recognition with Windows Hello. No SD card reader and HDMI port on this one. Most other laptops in this category don't have it either; so probably I am nitpicking now. The dim screen and webcam were the deal breakers for me. I loved the soundbar in the hinge and the laptop was fast too. The screen matters when the laptop is used mostly for streaming and I had to return it.

    The Lenovo Yoga C930 has replaced my Macbook as my main laptop. It's fast, responsive, and versatile. The keyboard has nice depth for it's thin frame. The only thing I could complain about is the glossy, dim screen. However, overall, this is a great laptop and I would recommend it to my friends and family.

      The Lenovo Yoga C930-14 ships with the ultra vivid imaging of Dolby Vision. Experience brighter brights, darker blacks, and colors never before seen on standard displays—the true red of an English double-decker bus, or the sharp blue of a summer sky. By shifting components, we were able to edge the screen with razor-thin 4.95 mm vertical bezels that will make the absolute most of your visuals.

    Good but not for me

    The C930 is a beautiful device. Perfect for people on the go but not for demanding data analysis. The screen size was a bit to small for me. The glossy display was a bit dim at times as well. Overall, perfect device for someone that wants a powerful 2-1! I I did return this device and purchased a MacBook Pro 15" 2018.
