      The Lenovo Yoga C930-14 uses the M.2 NVMe architecture solid state hard drive. M.2 NVMe SSD is designed for a PCIe 3.0 interface and fits in a x4 lane, delivering up to 7.9 Gb/s transfer rate and up to 3.9 GB/s throughput. If you are experiencing slower transfer speeds, be sure any software you installed is compatible with Windows 10. Incompatible software will slow down system performance. There is no need to install Microsoft Office software. The software is already part of the operating system, you just need to activate the software with a purchased product key. If you have installed a copy of Microsoft Office, this is conflicting with the existing copy on the system and this will slow your system down. If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus program, be sure that Windows Defender is turned off and that the trial version of McAfee Anti-Virus software is uninstalled. There can only be one anti-virus program on the system. You may need to restore your system to original factory default settings if any of the programing errors have occurred. You can do that by typing "restore" in the Cortana search window. Just click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your Windows 10 Desktop. Click on "Reset This PC" Then click on "Get Started" and follow the on screen directions to restore to factory defaults. If the problem persists, we recommend you contact Lenovo Tech Support at: 877-453-6686. Lenovo

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga C930-14. Working hand-in-hand with Dolby, we created the word's first speakers that fit into a convertible hinge via a rotating sound bar, delivering powerful immersive sound in every mode. The Yoga C930's Rotating Sound Bar with Dolby Atmos Speaker System is truly revolutionary, as the audio sound will be just as amazing whatever mode you're in: tent, stand, tablet, or laptop. Combine display clarity 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. For 2018, Lenovo retained its place for a second year as the best laptop vendor:

    Can't go wrong with this one ...may want to give one less star due to fixed 12GB memory which can't be upgraded. I did upgrade the SSD to 1TB though without any problem. Great performance and hidden slot for the pen.

    I just purchased the yoga 920 and it would glitch while using one note and Skype. Now this one is so much worse!! I can't even write a sentence without the built-in pen stopping me and glitching out writing lines a never wrote. It's very frustrating. I've had it less than 24 hours and im going to return it tomorrow.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga C930-14. We've heard from you that keeping track of a digital pen can be a pain. With a garaged pen (included with the Yoga C930) that fits flush into the chassis, you won't have to worry about looking for your pen when you need it. The Yoga C930 ensures you'll be able to capture your thoughts the moment they occur because it charges while in its compartment and is ready to go. With its 4,096 points of pressure sensitivity in the tip of the pen, it provides the natural feel of a pen-on-paper experience. Working hand-in-hand with Dolby, we created the word's first speakers that fit into a convertible hinge via a rotating sound bar, delivering powerful immersive sound in every mode.

    This laptop is exceptional. The screen has a bright, high definition picture. I love that it has a built-in pen to use on the screen. The location for its storage means that I won't lose it. I usually use an external mouse but haven't found it necessary with the very responsive touchpad. Love this laptop.

    Lenovo Yoga C930 is definitely one of the best premium 2in1 laptop with an inbuilt stylus pen that does most of the work. Its compact, lightweight, fast. And it has Dolby atmos soundbar which is actually the hinge. So the sound is at par when compared to other similar category laptops. Also the camera has a shutter button to turn it off when not in use. Definitely worth getting it in your hand.

    Well built & stylish 2-in-1 with stylus included

    First off, after opening the shipping box you are greeted by the eye catching packaging of the Lenovo Yoga C930. Kudos to the box designers for one of the best looking laptop packages I have ever seen. The laptop was well protected and arrived in perfect condition. Our household already has a Surface Book which we used for a good means of comparison to this Yoga. We placed the surface side by side with the Yoga C930 to compare sound. The Yoga comes with a rotating sound bar with Dolby Atmos speaker system for 3D audio in every mode. While the sound on the Surface Book is quite good, we felt the Yoga sound bar provided better bass in addition to Dolby Atmos given the use of content such as games or movies that feature Atmos. The rotating sound bar also seems to provide consistent quality sound whether in tablet or laptop mode. The Yoga also features internal storage of its stylus in a pen "garage" on the back side near the sound bar. There is a small learning curve to use proper finger placement when accessing the stylus since the power button is in close proximity to it. The stylus is responsive and accurate with two built in buttons to erase and right click. In terms of portability the Yoga is lightweight at 3lbs and .6" thin overall, but still has a very solid feel and quality build. The 13.9" full HD touch screen provides very sharp looking graphics which were more than adequate for our needs, but one can pay an additional amount for Yoga C930 models that feature a 4K Ultra HD touch screen. Standard is the Dolby Vision HDR which makes this laptop a great choice for media applications. Performance of the laptop was great with the I7-8550U processor, 256 GB SSD and 12gb RAM. Lenovo offers storage up to 2TB SSD for those with higher storage needs. In using the Yoga we found both the keyboard and trackpad to have a really nice, responsive feel; we were more than satisfied with both. The Yoga C930 includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports and one USB 3.0 type A port. There is no media card reader, but this is not a deal breaker to us since we already have USB card readers. It also features a built-in HD webcam (with privacy slider) and a stereo microphone. To summarize, we feel as though Lenovo has hit a home run with the sleek Yoga C930 due to awesome Dolby Vision HDR graphics, unique speaker design with rotating sound bar and Dolby Atmos speaker system, long lasting 14.5 hour battery life and stylus "garage". This 2-in-1 is stylish and feature packed at a reasonable value.

    Lightweight and very fast laptop. Starts up in seconds due to the fast processor and ram. I thought I would miss the watchband hinge but the speaker hinge is so much better. The volume is pretty loud and helps when watching movies, which look great on the bright screen. It is nice that the pen now can be stored in the laptop but I do wish it was a little bigger like the active pen 2 but this doesn't require separate batteries. The minor upgrades over the previous yoga makes this a great buy. It has been getting a lot of use since it's so portable.

    Stunning And Powerful

    The Lenovo - Yoga C930 is remarkable. I will state that right away. It's luxurious. I had my reservations about smaller 2 in 1 laptops due to owning a 10" a few years back. It wasn't a positive experience. However, with the Yoga C930 my opinions of smaller 2 in 1 laptops have changed. The Yoga C930 possesses a sturdy thinness that typically comes with larger 15 inches 2 in 1 devices. The Yoga is elegant in design with its brushed metal, Iron Gray shell. When you open the Yoga, you're greeted with a backlit keyboard that looks equally sleek as the outside of the Yoga. The keyboard is responsive as my fingers danced across each letter each time I wrote emails and long essays/writing projects. What I REALLY enjoyed was that the mousepad didn't accidentally read the edge of my thumbs because of lightly brushing against the pad. I think a lot of us can agree that accidentally moving the cursor while writing is the bane of writing. Another feature that was new to me was the stylus that comes with the Yoga! The stylus pen has its own docking garage built into the back of the Yoga which pretty much eliminates the threat of losing the electronic pen. The pen also charges when it is placed within the docking garage. No batteries required. When it comes to the usefulness of the stylus, I must admit that I am really impressed at how well it interacts with the touchscreen of the Yoga. Using the pen has already allowed me to design a fun banner that I used in a video. I can only imagine what a more capable artist could create with the stylus. The stylus also allows me to simply write my words in longhand which are then immediately converted to type font. This feature is fun and convenient when you might have the Yoga in tablet mode and want to pop out the pen to write down some notes without needing to unfold the computer into laptop mode. Now, allow me to praise the entertainment aspects when using the Yoga. There's not any awkwardness when converting the Yoga from laptop to tablet mode. The Yoga is incredibly light which allows you to hold it with one hand with ease. Watching movies or shows on this device taught me that it is possible to have a smaller 2 in 1 that provides a movie theater experience. Yes, I used the term, movie theater experience. The sound that flows from the Yoga come from Dolby Atmos. They deliver a rich and clean sound that is true stereo. I watched a couple of high action movies on my Yoga and it was as if I had a miniature soundbar attached to it. The stereo sounds were discernable! If the action was coming from the left side of the screen, then the sound could be heard from the left side of the screen and then move accordingly to what was happening on the screen. I've only had this kind of listening experience with my television soundbar. It was impressive, to say the least. From the technical aspect, the Yoga C930 uses an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor which allows fast response time when opening programs and apps. I honestly cannot say that I noticed a difference compared to my previous 2 in 1 which used the same processor. The storage is adequate for me so far and I don't see this being an issue in the future. The 13.9' screen provides a beautiful HD picture. The Yoga uses a thunderbolt charging cord and has two ports for it. There's also one USB port for flash drives or additional devices that you might want to plug in. It would've been nice to have an additional USB port for those 'unexpected' moments that would push for the need of an additional port. There's not an HDMI port or a micro memory card reader either. I mention this in case you might have utilized them on your previous device. The fingerprint security reader is spot on when reading your finger to unlock your Yoga (this is optional). I simply press my finger on the reader and the computer unlocks. Simple. With the Yoga C930, you're taking home a beautifully designed device that will allow you to expand both your entertainment and work experiences.

    Love the Lenovo Yoga C930, I use it for everyday stuff and even work on it. The included stylus is a plus and doesn't come with (too much) bloatware. It still is a little hefty if you are looking for a tablet-style like the Surface Pro, but the Yoga has better specs and better connectivity (USB-C !! @@@@@@@ for the same price (Surface is lighter and can be just a tablet, this one still has the keyboard facing back when you use it in tablet mode). The sound bar sound really great for a laptop. It is super fast to boot with the SSD!! Still not used to power on and barely wait a few seconds to log in. Overall a great product. Only drawback for me is that I prefer the Thinkpad-Style keyboard layout.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo Yoga C930-14. This model ships with just two adware programs, a 30-day trial of Microsoft Office 365 (as part of Windows 10 operating system) and a 30-day trial of McAfee virus protection. Lenovo computers ship with one of the cleanest factory software installs within the consumer computer industry. The Yoga C930-14 is an ultra portable, 2 in 1 computing system, weighing just 3.04 lbs. When the Yoga C930-14 is in tablet mode, the keyboard and touchpad automatically shut off so there are no inadvertent entries while in tablet mode. For 2018, Lenovo retained its place for a second year as the best laptop vendor:
