Lenovo Yoga C930 has been launched at the IFA 2018 technology event. This laptop follows in the footsteps of the luxury notebooks of the Yoga series. Now Lenovo has already released the datasheet for the new laptop, in which the typical “Watchband” ring unlike assumed but probably replaced by a new design.
Lenovo Yoga C930 has revised aluminum housing that has been reduced to the lowest possible weight. Compared to its predecessors, biggest change seems to be the hinge design itself, as Lenovo returns in part to its well-known double hinges, which were once used to establish the yoga series so successfully and have since found countless imitators.
However, the major change is the rotating sound bar that been placed on the hinge. It has Dolby Atmos-capable loudspeakers. Due to the double hinges, the sound bar obviously aligns itself with the angle of the display opening and rotates with it, so that in each operating mode an optimal audio experience can be offered.

Lenovo also gives the Yoga C930-13IKB a slot for the stylus, so that it can be easily carried along the way and is not be lost anymore. The pen is powered in its slot even with energy, so that the user does not have to worry about an empty battery. Of course, the display can be completely flipped over so as to turn the notebook into a tablet when needed.
