A Lenovo Yoga C930 was recently delivered for two weeks of fun.
Stretch the imagination
The Lenovo Yoga C930 is not your average laptop. The design is sleek, stylish, light and modern – like several other products on the market – but that’s just the start of it.
The touch-screen can be pushed right back against the back of the unit to activate tablet mode. With the digital pen (which fits flush with the chassis in the charging garage) you can take great strides in waste minimising. You never need to print another document to sign or settle for an illegible scribble of an uncertain digit on a trackpad.
Pigment of your imagination
The two senses involved when working on the Lenovo Yoga C930 – in addition to touch – is sight and sound.
The rotating sound bar in the hinge is nothing less than a Dolby Atmos®️ Speaker System, which produces powerful sound in every mode/position.
Not only will those with synesthesia experience a new spectrum of colourful sounds, Dolby Vision™️ 4K clarity displays intense colour for the rest of us who rely only on our eyes to see extraordinary things.
The good and the bad
Grant was smitten with the Lenovo Yoga C930. As a die-hard Apple fan I was very surprised at his reaction to it, and his desperation to keep it!
Marketed for home use, Grant kept telling me how this was a professionally specced machine for business on the go. There was certainly no waiting around for the machine to boot up or to access programmes – you’ve got to love a solid-state drive (SSD) and the 8th gen Intel®️ Core™️ i7 (the fastest mobile processor for responsiveness and speed). And with between nine and 14.5 hours of battery life, you really can go!
There’s only one problem with the Lenovo Yoga C930. It only has one standard USB port (two additional USB C ports though). Somehow I think the gorgeous aesthetic of this machine will be ruined by a momma piggy USB hub. But I suppose sacrifices need to be made for a work experienced that’s completely unmatched.
A natural progression
I currently use a Lenovo E10-30 and I love it! It has TWO USB ports 🤭 and is completely sufficient for writing and consuming media if you’re not too fussed about the screen size or audio quality – the latter being perfectly standard, but completely lacking after experiencing the Lenovo Yoga C930.
I have grand aspirations of going freelance and the Lenovo Yoga C930 would be my workhorse of choice. I guess I’d better add it in a letter to Santa. Actually, I’d need two so Grant won’t sneak mine away for his own purposes.
The Lenovo Yoga C930 is available at major retailers like Incredible Connection and Takealot.
