Lenovo's New Yoga 2-In-1 Has A Rotating Soundbar

Beautiful hinges have become something of a trend in laptops and 2-in-1s over the last few years. Lenovo has now taken it to the next level by installing a Dolby Atmos speaker in its latest flagship entry into its Yoga range — the Yoga C930.

And it rotates.

If you were thinking that the aesthetic is reminiscent of a TV soundbar, so did we. The point of the rotating speaker is of course to ensure that the user always has a speaker pointing at them, whether they are in laptop or tablet mode.

One of the other new features is stylus that can be stored and charged in a cavity (known as a 'Garage') in the laptop, much like Samsung's S Pen.

The new 2-in-1 will also support Dolby Vision HDR and both Cortana and Amazon Alexa through its far-reaching mic.

Here are the key specs:

  • 8th-Gen Intel Core i7-8550U or 8th-Gen Intel Core i5-8250U processor
  • Windows 10 Home OS
  • 13.9-inch UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS touchscreen with Dolby Vision or 13.9-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS touchscreen with Dolby Vision display
  • 8GB/12GB/16GB DDR4 memory
  • 256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB SSD storage
  • Estimated 14.5 hours FHD/9 hours UHD battery
  • 1 x USB 3.1, 2 x USB-C, headphone jack ports
  • Fingerprint reader and Windows Hello webcam security
  • 12.68 x 8.94 x 0.57 inches, 1.38kg
