Elegant, extremist and unique from Len's attack on the Slovak market


The Big Five finally came to the Slovak market. This is how it can be summarized in recent Lenovo product presentations. These are pieces that were originally registered at the IFA 2018 Technology Fair and are currently being sold in our country too. The news falls into two well-established product families – the Yoga convertible family and the ThinkPad business-oriented family.

Yoga C930

The latest "flagship" of the Yoga portfolio combines performance with all functional and modern aluminum designs. But Lenovo has prepared some interesting improvements that can be captured by Yoga C930. Not only will the eye touch the 13.9-inch IK screen with 4K resolution and HDR support, but the real surprise is underneath.

This is a rotating soundtrack with the Dolby Atmos speaker system. As Lenovo says, to achieve perfect sound in every situation (notebook position), speakers are placed directly into the notebook pivot. That connects the screen with the body.

It's also good to see that manufacturers respond appropriately to customer privacy issues. Lenovo has long been in this industry, and Yoge C930 has also been given a manual webcam hat on the ThinkPad. Well, and for those who have a creative soul, the stylus has been inserted into the notebook body.

There is little room for speculation on the Lenovo performance page. The latest 8th generation Intel Core processor, 16GB RAM and fast PCIe SSD up to 2 TB are clear choices. Paper battery life reaches 9 hours.

C930 Yoga has been sold in our market, the price starts from 1499 € without VAT.

Yoga S730

Pricing is a little more yoga called S730. Even though it falls into the Yoga series, it's no surprise that convertible notebooks can be fully tilted. However, it has a wide screen opening angle of up to 180 °. It stands out with a thin profile – 11.9 mm thickness, simple, yet stylish in aluminum and great durability at the 12 hour level.

Like that, slimy Yoga Yoga has received an 8th generation Intel Core processor, up to 16GB of storage and up to 1 TB of PCIe SSD drives. There is a 13.3-inch IPS screen with Full HD resolution and a minimalist frame. We also have a backlit keyboard, an enhanced cooling system, Dolby Atmos speakers, and a fingerprint reader.

The Yoga S730 will be available in early December at a cost of € 1,019.

Yoga Book C930

The only unique feature of Lenovo is the Yoga Book C930 hybrid, also known as "Yoga Book 2". Equipped with a pair of screens, the main one is the classic 10.8-inch touch screen LCD screen with a resolution of 2 560 × 1 600 pixels.

Similarly, a large secondary touch screen is located where we usually find a physical keyboard and build what is called E-Ink technology. Can do many tasks. It features a keyboard, digital desktop for writing, writing notes, and input pens, as well as electronic book readers.

Lenovo highlights that it has used its knowledge gained in the sale of the first generation Lenovo Yoga Book. Because of this, newer models are greatly improved on site performance, which is the main weakness of its predecessor. Available with Intel Core m3-7Y30 and i5-7Y74 processors, 4 GB RAM and PCIe SSDs up to 256 GB. The battery life is set to reach the 9 hour limit and SIM-supported models are available for non-stop access to data connections. In addition, this device is still compact with a thickness of 9.9 mm and weighs 799 grams.

However, compared to the first generation, its performance has not increased. The selling price is growing rapidly. The C930 Yoga Book is available on our market starting from € 1499.

ThinkPad P1

Mobile workstations with exceptional performance designed for the most demanding. It must be the smallest, lightest and most powerful workstation ever. Looking at hardware devices, there is nothing to watch out for.

"Under the hood" is the 8th generation of Intel Xeon or Intel Core processors with operating frequencies of up to 4.4 GHz, 64 GB of memory and Nvidia Quadro P2000 graphics cards. It is definitely certified for the most widely used professional applications from companies such as Adobe, Autodesk, Bentley, Siemens, Vectorworks and many others.

This rough machine is about 18 mm thick and weighs 1.7 kg. In addition, the design of the traditional ThinkPad ThinkPad family with great durability, plus a great keyboard and touchpad glass. The 15.6-inch and 4-inch IPS screens display 100% color coverage of the Adobe gamut and 400-nit color brightness.

The workstation will lose some of its portability if the user must carry a heavy source. Therefore, the power adapter is 35% smaller and lighter than the front.

In this case, you must rely on the fact that you get extra performance in a portable package. ThinkPad P1 has been sold at prices starting at $ 2499.

ThinkPad X1 Extreme

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is not a problem in the performance field. As the title indicates, the new one brings all the benefits of ThinkPad X1 to the extreme.

He can thank the Intel Core i9 processor combined with 64 GB of memory and a fast pair of M.2 SSD drives. This is due, surprisingly, to the NVIDIA GeForce 1050 Ti graphics card in the Max-Q version.

Because this is a ThinkPad core, it means increased resistance to mechanical damage and a combination of reliability and traditional design. There is no big photo shoot here, its features are more intimate and effective.

Travel workers must be happy with a battery that lasts up to 15 hours, which also allows to fill up to 80% of capacity in one hour. Lenovo also highlighted this security focus. This specifically mentions the possibility of hard drive mirroring, perhaps with software installed, physical webcam cover, dtpm 2.0 data encryption chip and fingerprint reader. If your heart is touched by this extreme ThinkPade, you must prepare at least € 2499.

Where is the Yoga C630 WOS?

Vigilant eyes may not miss the fact that there is a clear lack of representatives of "Windows on ARM" between the products presented, or "Windows on Snapdragon". Next is the device where we found the Snapdragon chip identical to the one that has a modern smartphone. There are no such devices in our area, indicating that the local market response will be far from ideal kilometers.

Overall, this project initially caused significant obstacles, but when the first device really got foreign markets, it turned out that before mass expansion, some more important details – price, performance, software optimization – were needed.

Some of them must be completed by the second generation of products, but Slovakia is not only a market climate model that is suitable for a measurable start of new features such as deviations from the year of architecture used. Therefore, producers are very careful in this field, if there is something interesting, and everything is thoroughly analyzed.

If, and that's great, we go to the Yoga C630 WOS market from Len, it won't be until next year. Even when we move in the theoretical field, no definite decision is made. First of all, it's easy to evaluate a larger and better prepared market response, so the smaller ones will be involved than us.
