January 3, 2019 Reply Erik Heyl Hi Dan! Are you at all concerned about Lenovo's prior indiscrections on things like Superfish etc? It's one thing that's giving me pause when looking at the thinkpad line (frankly everyone seems to love the Dell XPS 15 and my mum and wife both have Dells with no issue…). But I'm looking Lenovo's way too as I want a tank and not for gaming, just 3D (Blender) and video work (DaVinci Resolve) January 3, 2019 Reply dlux Yeah, the 2TB version is "ONLY" $2999, so if it isn't the best at something, then DUH!!! The big drawback is that it's still f**king Windows and all that baggage comes along with the pretty face. My last Lenovo/Windows laptop is now a Chromecast streaming device and I have liberated myself with a premium Chromebook. Free at last. January 3, 2019 Reply ctk4949 I would get the Glass version. I wish the screen was nicer. I also dont like the Type C port is in front of the Type A port. The charging cable will get in the way.

January 5, 2019 Reply Stjepan Benković This or Surface 6 Pro? January 5, 2019 Reply Sartorius988 Personally was deciding between this an the Huawei Matebook X Pro, but ultimately no regrets in choosing the Huawei, the kicker for Huawei is the screen and the bezels as well as the graphics and the 3:2 screen ratio. Lenovo does things well, it has the convertible feature but the screen just feels too 2015 for me. January 5, 2019 Reply itselainefipo Is this better than nitro spin 5? January 6, 2019 Reply Rolando Borriceli I do not agree with what you said about the display the 4K is significantly more vibrant and higher in constrast looking January 6, 2019 Reply Tizo Jiyane In one of your reviews I criticised that we wanna see the device more than your face… I can immediately see the difference between that review and this one. Great review well done January 6, 2019 Reply Rocky Siccion What app are you using in 10:45 mark thanks January 6, 2019 Reply Wilson Mercedes Wallpaper please!!!! January 6, 2019 Reply Norman Lang The physical camera shutter is actually elegant and more secure than a software solution. Hackers can activate a camera without any indication that the camera is on. With this solution, your privacy is 100% guaranteed. January 6, 2019 Reply Seth Parr You've now tested both the C930 and the X1 Yoga. If you could pick between the two, what would be your preference? I purchase the C930 with the 4K, i7, 16 GB, & 512 option and it's a great machine but the matte screen option, better color gamut, brighter screen, better battery, a CPU that's allowed to run free, HDMI built in, legendary Thinkpad keyboard, etc. of the X1 Yoga has me wondering if I would prefer that machine over the C930. My local Best Buy doesn't, unfortunately, have one where I can go and test. If you had to make a choice between the two, what would you choose? January 7, 2019 Reply Dean Murray What background were you using on the laptop? Looks really nice! January 7, 2019 Reply Bash A. Both colours are very pleasing. However, I actually love the lighter silver color. Looks elegant and clean! January 8, 2019 Reply Bartholomew Hunt Got it 2 months ago, the 4K 16G RAM. The sound is amazing, great build quality. The battery is pathetic though.

January 15, 2019 Reply Kelvin J So I've been looking for a laptop for YouTube Netflix and some random rocket league. It was between this and the Huawei with the mx150. But I decided to go for the c930 because of the tablet mode. Wow I honestly am always in tablet mode more then anything lol and the screen is beautiful for movies and shows don't know why people like those other square screens January 18, 2019 Reply Laurie Arnheim I thought this was a great review! I'm not super tech savy, and don't even own a laptop, so I appreciate a review I can actually understand! I do know that I really liked the fan with the vents at the back, so the bottom of the device doesn't get hot! This was always a problem with the hubby's old laptop. That pen is SWEET, the speaker at the back, and the hinges too!!! Very impressive for every day use, in my opinion. Thank for the review!!! January 19, 2019 Reply NTH THN nice cup! January 21, 2019 Reply Faisal This or the EliteBook x360 1030 G3 January 26, 2019 Reply ክልሁፕጎረሁነ Great notebook and all, but what really bothers is that the camera does not support windows hello. January 31, 2019 Reply ARROVV ARROVV Are you able to upgrade the VRAM on the lenovo yoga c930? January 31, 2019 Reply Dominique Soeldner Hi all! I'm going to be purchasing the c930 later today but had a couple of questions. If anyone knows the answers, please feel free to respond. 1. I know this has a pen in the garage, but I didn't know there were different qualities to the pens. I'm wondering if I should be purchasing the other lenovo pen to use when writing or drawing. This video made it seem like the included pen is less than stellar. 2. I'm a freak about keeping my tech toys in pristine condition so I'm curious if there are any cases that can be used with this laptop? I was hunting on Amazon last week but only 2 options popped up and they didn't have the best reviews. I'd settle fof a skin which I imagine will help keep scratches to a minimum, but there were some skins that left a residue on the product. Has anyone used a skin or case with this and if so, can you point me in the right direction? Thank you so much! February 12, 2019 Reply # TBC Can you compare this and the Surface Pro/Laptop?

March 15, 2019 Reply shavri7962 Any chance of a comparison vid to the xps 15 2in1? March 16, 2019 Reply MaZEEZaM Urgh, how come so few laptops include an SD card reader anymore 🙁 SD card reader is a must have imo. I really like the minimalist design of the laptop, perhaps one of my favourites but it seems the hardware lets it down a bit. March 17, 2019 Reply MaZEEZaM Does anyone know what movie was in the background with the glowing woman in it? March 17, 2019 Reply Virtual G Thank you for the in-depth review. It helped nudge me towards my purchase of the C930. I tried and returned the Spectre 360 – it felt too rough for its price points (poor touchpad, fans always on, bug in the battery life, and the fingerprint sensor stopped being recognized after a windows update). The 4k C930 starts at a few hundred dollars more than the HP, but as all reviews noted, they run sales all the time, and I managed to grab one for the same price as the HP. I quite like the 4k display – bright & sharp – and unit is quiet until pushed, and even then, the fans produce a low key white noise. Overall, the C930 feels like a mature system, where all the parts and drivers work well together. Again, thanks for the great review. March 18, 2019 Reply MaZEEZaM I REALLY liked the Watch Band hinge, probably my favourite hinge design. March 19, 2019 Reply MaZEEZaM ‘“A pain to pull out the pen” at least it’s not going to fall out.

April 19, 2019 Reply Rennah Is this laptop good with not being too hot?Does the pen inside the slot drain battery life? Is this laptop better than the Lenovo yoga 730 2 in 1 15inch? April 19, 2019 Reply Paul Cotton The screen looks like it doesn’t get too bright. April 22, 2019 Reply Bing fang Chen hi，I bought Lenovo Yoga 720 at 4/2018, but it had a big problem (blue screen) appear after I used it on 6months. I send to your company to repair. However, your company not best to fix it, the problem got more and too frequent to opened laptop. I send my laptop to your company again. A month after, I got my laptop again, but it still had the problem and also frequently to show out. Therefore, I was called phone number said I wanted got a refund, because this laptop made me tried and not beneficial for me. The company takes my case like dodgeball. I use $1500more to buy the trash， only use a few months. By the way, the manager Demone, he threatens me if I just want to return the laptop, I must give back my laptop to them and they not sent me replacement and refund. The company always said replay you soon, but I didn’t get response and solutions. I will talk about this laptop not the best choice for everyone. April 24, 2019 Reply nemlol C930 vs X1 yoga?
