Remember the Lenovo Yoga Book? The ultra-thin 2-in-1 was one of the shining stars at IFA two years ago. Today at IFA in Berlin, Lenovo has announced the update to the Yoga Book, the new Yoga Book C930, and it is the world’s first dual display laptop with E-Ink.
Weighing in at 1.71 lbs (or 1.76 lbs with LTE built in), the weight of the new Yoga Book is a bit heavier than the 1.51 lbs weight of its predecessor, but that is a fair trade-off for the increased performance that the new Yoga Book C930 brings. To that effect, the new Yoga Book is pricier than its predecessor but it’s also a lot more powerful. That is because it comes running on a 7th Gen Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor or a 7th Gen Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor with 4GB of RAM.
This time around Lenovo has scrapped the option for an Android model altogether, and they are just offering a Windows 10 model. The display size has been slightly increased from 10.1” to a 10.8” QHD LCD IPS touchscreen with an improved 2560×1600 resolution.
The second display has been replaced with a super neat 10.8” E-Ink touchscreen display that sports an FHD (1920×1080) resolution. This second display can be used as a keyboard, a digital sketchpad, or as an ebook reader, which all make the device that much more versatile. The E-Ink display itself is quite good and can be used as an eBook reader and it is high-res enough to even handle magazines. The device also comes with a Wacom Active Pen with support for 4096 levels of pressure.
Battery life on the Yoga Book is supposed to be up to 8.6 hours and it charges via USB-C.
Pricing for the Lenovo Yoga Book C930 will start at $999 and it will be available in October.
