    Yeah, that's one of their most boneheaded marketing decisions ever, and they've made a few..

    Here is a short video review
    I really like the dark/black color option.

    This thing was launched in Sep 2018 with an Aug 2017 Kaby Lake R i7-8550U? Not the April 2018 Coffee Lake i7-8559U? Not the Aug 2018 Whiskey Lake i7-8565U? WTF?

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-8559U+@+2.70GHz&id=3302
    The 8559U is a 28W cpu, so nearly 100% more heat and the 8565U came out 1 month before the C930, how long do you thing does it take to design such a thing?

    I hadn't noticed the wattage of the 8559, but I think another reason Lenovo could not use it is that it was built just for Apple.

    Dell launched a computer with the 8565 on Aug 28, the same day Intel launched the 8565 itself, so I still say WTF?

    Dear C930 owners,
    Does the power button protrude at alI? In other words, can you set this computer up in portrait mode with the power button side down on the desk without it being pushed?

    Thanks
