Lenovo’s flagship Yoga 2-in-1 laptop has been revamped for 2018.

The 2018 design of the new Yoga C930 is not drastically different than its predecessor, but Lenovo has scrapped its iconic watchband-like hinge design and replaced the hinge with something more practical – a never-before-seen rotating sound bar, along with space for a pen compartment.

The body is now made completely of a premium aluminum CNC unibody design. Overall, it’s an even more sophisticated look for Lenovo’s popular flagship, and certainly a practical one, but we kind of miss the uniqueness of the watchband hinge.

The display now features a more narrow bezel with an overall smaller footprint and Lenovo is offering a Dolby Vision HDR 4k display option. The display also comes with a privacy shutter (AKA a webcam cover). Fortunately, the webcam is not a chin cam and it isn’t located above the display.

The Yoga features a Garaged Pen that charges in its compartment

A new garaged pen is included with the Yoga C930 that is able to charge up while docked. The pen offers 4096 of pressure sensitivity levels.

Other noteworthy features include a built-in fingerprint reader, 2 Thunderbolt ports, and far-field voice support.

Pricing for the Yoga C930 will start at $1399 and it goes on sale in October, just in time for the holiday season.
