Price and availability

The Lenovo Yoga C940 will come in two variations when it launches: a 14-inch and 15-inch model. The 14-inch Yoga C940 will start the pricing at $1,249 (about £1,040, AU$1,850), which equips the 2-in1 laptop with a 10nm, 10th Gen Intel Core i5 CPU with Intel UHD 950 integrated graphics.

Rounding out the starting specification is 8GB of DDR4X memory (RAM) and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD). All of that sits beneath a 14-inch, Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS touchscreen with Dolby Vision, 400 nits of brightness and 100% coverage of the sRGB color space.

Every other configuration remains unpriced at the time of writing, but a maxed-out Yoga C940 would include a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU the 10nm process with Intel UHD 960 graphics, 16GB of RAM and either a 1TB SSD alone or paired with 32GB of Intel’s Teton Glacier flash memory. Oh, and it will also have a UHD (3,840 x 2,160) touchscreen at 500 nits.

Meanwhile, the 15-inch version contains less cutting-edge hardware inside, but is arguably more powerful in other respects, particularly graphics. The 15-inch Yoga C940 starts at $1,709 (about £1,420, AU$2,530) for a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU paired with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics.

Otherwise, this laptop starts with somewhat weaker DDR4 RAM, but with 12GB rather than just 8GB in the 14-inches, as well as the very same starting storage option of a 256GB SSD. The 15-inch model also starts with a Full HD touch display, but at 500 nits to begin with.

A fully-upgraded 15-inch Yoga C940 will provide a 9th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU with the same graphics option, 16GB of RAM, and either a 2TB SSD or a 1TB SSD paired with that 32GB Intel Teton Glacier flash memory module. Naturally, this model will also feature a UHD touchscreen.

With all this laid out, the Yoga C940 14-inch is priced quite competitively with the likes of the HP Spectre x360 and Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 when similarly specced out.

Design and construction

Here, we are talking about a high-quality build. The entirety of the body is built out of aluminum. While everything looks super sleek, there is one thing that shines above all (literally) – the soundbar. Mainly on the silver model, the bar looks chromed and gives the Yoga C940 (14) a hint of extra exclusivity. As expected from a 14-inch convertible, it is extremely easy to carry it around with its 1.35 kg weight and profile of 14-15mm.

Interestingly, the lid opens easily with a single hand and then is able to go all the way around for an almost flush finish with the back of the device. You can notice that no matter in what direction you have converted the device, the soundbar is always firing towards you. Isn’t that insane?

On the base, there is the keyboard, which is hardly going to be the most popular input device on this machine. Nevertheless, it is pretty comfortable with its relatively big keycaps and clicky feedback, while they travel is shorter than what we would like. Further below, the touchpad has a glass cover and feels fast and responsive. The same can be said about the fingerprint reader.

How about the “garaged” Pen this laptop comes with. Well, it is pretty good from a non-artist perspective. Also, the display is pretty fast to respond with the input from the Pen, while the palm-rejection software does its job in a great way. However, something was not right. We found it extremely difficult to draw a straight line with this thing. There was something with the detection of the Pen input that was making the pointer to flicker, similarly to drawing on MS Paint with a mouse.

Speaker-wise, this laptop has 4 of them. Two are placed at the bottom plate and two are hidden in the “soundbar”, which greatly improves the sound quality of this machine.

Ports

In terms of I/O, there is not much to choose from. It is all situated on the left side and consists of a single USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 2) port, two Thunderbolt 3.0 connectors, that can be used for charging, as well as one audio combo jack. Optionally, you can receive some dongles inside the box. By the way, on the right side, you can see the power on/off switch, which is surprisingly tactile when pressed.

Performance and features

Lenovo Yoga C940 Performance and features

While we can’t speak too deeply – or with too much judgment – on the Yoga C940’s capabilities having spent so little time with it (much less considering both models), we can at least get an idea of what it can do based on what’s inside.

The 14-inch model is likely to be the most efficient of the two, with 10nm processing and DDR4X both delivering similar or better performance than their predecessors while consuming less power overall. Both parts could theoretically be used to push a system further than before, but Lenovo is focused on well-rounded performance and battery life from the 14-inch Yoga C940.

Meanwhile, the 15-inch model uses slightly older hardware in more powerful configurations, like Core i9 processing and Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics. Expect to get stronger high-resolution and 3D rendering out of this version, but shorter battery life.

Lenovo projects that the Full HD, 14-inch Yoga C940 will last for up to 17 hours and 30 minutes, while the UHD model will last up to 9 hours and 30 minutes. As for the 15-inches, that will last up to 12 hours with a Full HD display and 9 hours with the UHD screen. Both models can gather up to 2 hours of charge from 15 minutes connected to an outlet with rapid charging via USB-C.

To complement the hardware inside, all of the key features within the Yoga C930 are also available in the C940. That includes the digital stylus that both stores and charges inside the laptop, the fingerprint sensor on the palm rest – though, we’d love to see it in the power button – and the webcam privacy shutter.
