Lenovo released its first yoga laptop back in 2012 and since then the company has released several new models in their lineup. today we will review the C940 series 9.
First of all this laptop is not cheap however it boasts some very high specs as well as the kinds of things designers artists and visual editors would use not to mention its ability to run some of the latest games with ease.
The entire Laptop is built out of Aluminium giving it a premium finish at a weight of 1.35kg. It has one usb 3.0 port and two thunderbolt 3 usb-c ports.
The latest revision since the C930 is the single hinge fitted with dolby atmos sound. not only is the single hinge more durable but it packs amazing surround sound showing a good improvment to its predesessors.
The 10th generation Intel processor brings significant performance increases and has no trouble dealing with day to day usage including editing photos designing vector graphics, browsing the web and running a few games.
The latest Intel Iris Plus Graphics are excellent and were even able to run games such Red Dead Redemption2, GTA5, Witcher 3, Metro Exodus etc..
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-1065G7 CPU @ 1.30GHz 1.50 GHz
Installed RAM 16.0 GB (15.7 GB usable)
System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Pen and touch Pen and touch support with 10 touch points
UHD 4k 14″ touchscreen is bright and crystal clear making design work precise. though this is not the standard configuration its recommended for those who are in the visual media industry. The laptop also comes with a built in pen however I found it very thin and not ideal for drawing.
Lenovo Yoga C940 battery
The battery is good giving the laptop a reasonable portable use however this is quickly changed the moment you start to use it.
with screen brightness set to max and the performance set to highest the C940 maxed out at 4 hours battery life. which is still a respectable lifespan for a windows machine. the new thunderbolt 3 usb-c charger recharged the battery in just over an hour.
The Lenovo Yoga C940 is a versitile powerful and premium finish laptop for those not buying a macbook. this laptop is the best lenovo laptop to date and carries the legacy of the yoga series forward.
