Lenovo is updating its Yoga Book line of dual-display laptops with a new model sporting premium specs.
The new Yoga Book C930 features a 10.8 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel LCD IPS touchscreen display plus a 10.8 inch 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen E Ink display where you’d find a keyboard on most laptops.
You can use that E Ink screen for writing, drawing, or typing (thanks to a virtual keyboard feature).
The convertible notebook measures 10.3″ x 7.1″ x 0.4″ and weighs about 1.7 pounds. And it should be available in October for $1000.
While earlier Yoga Book devices were priced at $500 or lower, they also tended to ship with entry-level processors (like Intel’s Atom chips). The new Yoga Book C930 still has a low-power processor, but it’s a higher-performance 7th-gen Intel Core Y-series processor.
The new Yoga Book is still a thin, light, and fanless computer. And the new model has Lenovo’s watchband-style hinge.
Here’s a run-down of the specs/options:
- Intel Core M3-7Y30 or Core i5-7Y74 processor
- 4GB LPDDR3 RAM
- Up to 256GB of PCIe SSD storage
- 35.8 Wh battery
- 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth
- Optional 4G LTE
- 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C ports
- Optical fingerprint reader
- Stereo speakers
Pen input is handled by a Wacom active pen with 4096 levels of pressure-sensitive input.
Lenovo says the dynamic keyboard has been updated with bigger keys and a bigger trackpad. Oh, and there’s one more thing that sets it apart from the Wacom graphics pad on older Yoga Book devices: it’s a fully functional E Ink screen that lets you use the Yoga Book C930 as an eReader for viewing eBooks, documents, or other content.
