Lenovo unveils the latest generation of notebooks with Snapdragon 850

Lenovo goes all-out with laptops at IFA 2018

Lenovo goes all-out with laptops at IFA 2018

It's a shame that the Yoga Book C930 has to cost so much more than it previously did, especially when up against 2-in-1 devices that look and feel just as luxury, i.e. the new Surface Go, for hundreds less.

The Yoga 930 has a normal display screen as all laptops do, but also has in the place of the keyboard a second screen that doubles as a digital keyboard, black and white e-reader, and a notepad.

Lenovo threw every laptop they had at IFA 2018 this year, including a new Yoga, Chromebook, and ThinkPad, but the Yoga Book C930 is the most exciting upgrade. This video was sponsored by Skillshare. One can use the e-ink display screen to write notes as well.

This Chromebook is huge as it measures 14.23 x 9.8 x 0.7 inches, and it weighs around 42 lbs, or 361.5 x 248.85 x 17.8 mm and 1.9 kg if you're European. You'll still have the same basic impression of typing on glass, but Lenovo seems to have done everything possible to fool your fingers into thinking they're typing on a more traditional keyboard.

The most notable is the battery life.

In addition to the Yoga Chromebook, Lenovo also unveiled two entry-level Chromebooks, the $280 priced C330 and the $250 priced S330.

What's particularly impressive about the e-ink panel is it also serves as the touch keyboard when using the colour LCD. It also comes with dual-fan cooling system. Qualcomm also likes to remind you that the Windows on Snapdragon platform is also "always on".

Alternatively it's a paunchy computer, too: it's a Windows 10 instrument with seventh-Gen Intel processors that wants so as to withhold up with light computing wants. Additional storage expansion is available through a microSD card slot, as well as a USB Type-A port.

She said: 'We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate'.

It has a 13.3-inch high-resolution IPS touchscreen with 1080 pixel resolution and support for the 4K format.

The Miix 630 was Lenovo's Windows machine with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset inside of it.

Apart from this, you have integrated eleven 630 graphics, Snapdragon X20 LTE-A modem, dedicated signal for image signal processing, audio, sensor, security and artificial intelligence.

Lenovo's latest laptops have been launched to benefit from the recent rebound in PC sales.

After a hard couple of years with declining PC and laptop sales, the market has seen a rebound that has helped Lenovo. In the second quarter of 2018, Lenovo's PC shipments were up 17% from the same period previous year, as per the data from the International Data Corporation (IDC).

Lenovo Smart Home Essentials is a new family of connected devices that are compatible with the Google Assistant, Alexa and the recently launched Lenovo Smart Display.

This is a "Yoga" device because it has the 360-degree hinge design from the company's Windows laptops.
