    Does the c940 have any important improvements other than Ice Lake cpus (which don't appear to make much diff, other than perhaps batt life)? Probably can save much coin buying a c930.

    Problem is that it has only 4gb RAM

    My mistake - didn't realize this is the e-ink product. Weird that it has the same model designation as the entirely different c940.

    New Update:
    PDF ANNOTATION!!!!!!!!
    Has arrived.

    Pros:
    - Even choice of pen thickness/color (color viewable on LCD comuter screen)
    - File browser is faster
    - Writing is instantaneous

    What a great Christmas present!

    Con:
    (nitpick)
    Zoom is 50% increments
    Would be nice to get 25% increments or dynamic?

    If Lenovo people read this board:
    Can you program some sort on-screen of keyboard on/off button .
    When folded back, if bumped or accidently tapped, the screen goes off
    You have to fold out and back to get the eInk screen again. It gets really
    annoying at times.


    Ooops, forgot the link:

    My YogaBook C930 has been at a Lenovo Service Depot since mid-November. One of the end pins on the left hand side of the watchband hinge fell off. They can't find parts for it for service. It's on hold for part TPink96108E0002BlkAVCCorningCG. With Corning in the part name it sounds like they had to replace the whole Gorilla Glass.

    I just bought this on Amazon , so here is my review
    Super thin and light - Having used the Ipad Pro , the thinkpad Helix 2 , the X1 tablet , the thinkpad 10 , I love the weight .
    Ports - 2 USB C is adequate , as I have dongles and adapters for the occasional file transfers .
    Battery life - not bad , i can have not fully tested it yet . but get 6-8 hours
    Typing - i touch type and is accustomed to the ipad
    Processing and graphics power - adequate for my needs , light gaming is good
    Screen is beautiful , entire device is a work of art
    Pen - don't use it much , but is is as good any any other pen device
    Sound is decent , Ipad pro is better .I can still watch movies on full volume
    128 Gb storage is adequate , i have a 512GB Micro SD card
    Form factor - I prefer this to the Surface pro kickstand and keyboard style
    4GB ram - no freezing on any program used , so i have no complaints
    Heat - does occasionally get a bit warm below the E-ink section .
    Fanless so no noise

    Only gripe - fully updated , the screen may go black when folded and used as a tablet , as it thinks I want to use the e-ink display .
    Double tapping brings it back . I hope a future software update will fix this .Other users have this issue .
    Also wish for a 256Gb version with 8 GB ram , but this will do .

    The portability alone makes it worth it
    Typing this review on the YogaBook C930 , hopefully I never have to upgrade to anything else
    In a totally dark room , the white E ink keyboard is visible as the IPS Main screen illuminates it

    There is a new update as of 2/3/2020
    It is supposed to show Outlook on the EInk Screen.
    But lots of problem reported for this update.
    It breaks the eInk reader and something in annotation.

    I'm going to set this one out until they fix the problems
