The Lenovo Yoga Chromebook Model C630 Review

In the relatively recent past, the main top of the line Chromebook available was Google's own Pixelbook. Be that as it may, in the previous couple of months, a few PC producers have uncovered their very own premium Chromebooks. Lenovo's Yoga Chromebook C630 (from $599, $899 as tried) takes things to the following dimension with the world's first 4K show on a Chromebook. Alongside its dazzling 15.6-inch board, this 2-in-1 offers astounding execution in an adaptable aluminum skeleton. Be that as it may, the battery life on the Yoga Chromebook C630 is baffling, so the individuals who care about perseverance ought to choose the lower-res 1080p form.


Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 Price and Configuration Options

In case you're not sold on 4K, Lenovo sells a 1080p model of the Yoga Chromebook C630 for $599 with an Intel Core i3-8130U CPU, 8GB of RAM and 64GB of glimmer stockpiling. Moving up to a Core i5-8250U CPU and 128GB of eMMC stockpiling raises the cost to $719.

Plan

The Yoga Chromebook C630 embraces the spotless, downplayed structure signature found over Lenovo's more up to date customer PCs. I'm commonly a fanatic of the look, yet for this situation, the outcomes are fairly tasteless. Aside from a dark Lenovo image on the left pivot, the deck of the PC comes up short on any one of a kind structure components. The equivalent goes for the cover, where a smooth, midnight-blue completion is hindered just by a Yoga logo and Chrome marking.

A little differentiation could have gone far toward improving the feel of the Yoga Chromebook C630. Some white key textual style alongside a somewhat darker shade of blue on the touchpad and console are the main takeoffs from its dim blue suspension. There is no chrome trim, precious stone cut edges or a power catch embellishing the deck of this stealthy machine. Indeed, even the dependably beautiful Chrome logo is covered in dim on the dull top.

While it's not the most outwardly striking workstation, the Yoga Chromebook C630's aluminum frame feels premium, particularly contrasted with the stout plastic Chromebooks we're utilized to. The C630's best and side showcase bezels are sensibly slim, yet the thick base bezel is an inadequately prepped mustache that about riches the C630's pretty 4K face.

As a 2-in-1, the Chromebook C630 can change from a workstation into a tablet, on account of its adaptable pivots. The Yoga is fairly awkward when flipped out of PC introduction, however despite everything I delighted in survey substance and playing Android recreations in tablet and tent mode.

At 14.2 x 9.8 x 0.7 inches and 4.1 pounds, the Yoga Chromebook C630 is huge and substantial for a Chromebook, however it's genuinely versatile given the huge 15-inch show. The 12.3-inch Google Pixel Slate (11.5 x 8 x 0.6 inches, 2.9 pounds) and Google Pixelbook (11.4 x 8.7 x 0.4 inches, 2.5 pounds) are typically littler and lighter than the 15.6-inch Yoga Chromebook C630. The 13.3-inch Acer Chromebook 13 (12.2 x 9.7 x 0.7 inches, 3.6 pounds) is likewise a more travel-accommodating workstation than the Lenovo.

Ports

I would have enjoyed a more extensive choice of ports on the Yoga Chromebook C630, given its huge undercarriage, yet regardless it has a satisfactory assortment of data sources.

You'll discover a microSD card space, a USB Type-C port and a Kensington lock on the correct side of the workstation, close to a volume rocker and power catch.

The left side houses a second USB Type-C port (unfortunately, no Thunderbolt 3) for power, alongside a USB 3.0 port and an earphone/mic combo jack.

Show

The Yoga Chromebook C630 gives you a chance to encounter Chrome OS in tasty 4K goals surprisingly. While the pixel-pressed board is without a doubt exquisite, 1080p shows on some contending PCs are more splendid and progressively vivid.

I could see the little emeralds in Jasmine's dress just as the mind boggling, striped example on the substance of her pet tiger, Rajah, in a trailer for the 2019 no frills redo of Aladdin. Immersed hues burst off the showcase amid a procession scene, and the Genie's skin was a rich, pastel blue, despite the fact that Will Smith looked preferred he would have been a superior fit for a Las Vegas residency than allowing our hero's desires. While the Yoga Chromebook C630's showcase isn't actually diminish, I wish it were more splendid amid darker scenes.

The Yoga Chromebook C630's 15.6-inch, 4K show spreads 107 percent of the sRGB shading array, making it less distinctive than the boards on the Pixel Slate (120 percent), Pixelbook (117 percent) and Chromebook 13 (126 percent). In any case, the Lenovo's presentation beat the Chromebook class normal (83 percent) by a substantial edge.

We saw comparable outcomes on our showcase splendor test. The 4K show on this Lenovo workstation crested at 260 nits, which is dimmer than the showcases on the Acer Chromebook 13 (282 nits) and both of Google's Chrome OS gadgets: the Pixel Slate (337 nits) and Pixelbook (421 nits). The class normal is a disappointing 225 nits.

I had no issues utilizing the Yoga's liquid, responsive touch screen to explore the web and play amusements, in spite of the fact that a stylus should be incorporated into the container at this cost.

Console and Touchpad

The Chromebook Yoga C630's island-style console doesn't satisfy the ThinkPad's elevated models, yet despite everything it offers an OK composing background. Since the C630's key travel is low for a 15-inch workstation, at 1.4 millimeters (we favor at any rate 1.5 mm), I bottomed out more than expected. The keys are additionally somewhat solid, and my fingers wound up exhausted after a long composing session.

On a positive note, the illuminated keys are pleasantly separated and their better than expected 70 grams of activation drive kept my fingers flying amid our composing test.

Discussing which, I composed at 120 words for each moment with a 94 percent precision rate on the 10FastFingers.com composing test. That is marginally quicker than my commonplace pace (119 wpm) however with a couple of more mistakes contrasted with my normal precision rate (95 percent).

Underneath the console is a smooth, delicate touch track cushion that reacted rapidly to my information. I was even ready to execute Chrome OS signals - swiping left or appropriate to switch tabs and a three-finger swipe to open all windows - on the 4.0 x 2.7-inch surface.

Sound

The two base terminating speakers on the facade of the Yoga Chromebook C630 produce strong sound quality. Thrice's shake ditty "My Soul" filled our medium-measure lab with clear, point by point sound when I maximized the volume levels. Dustin Kensrue's imposing vocals were very much characterized, however the high-recurrence electric guitar notes sounded empty and, on the low end, drum kicks were frail.

The equivalent can be said about Box Car Racer's melody "And I." The Blink 182 spinoff's adoration tune was damaged by a clamor of guitar sounds, despite the fact that Tom DeLonge's particular vocal tone rose up out of the wreckage.

Execution

Consolidate Google's famously lightweight working framework with the Yoga Chromebook C630's Intel Core i5-8250U CPU and 8GB of RAM, and you get remarkable genuine execution. There was just the smallest trace of slack when I stacked 23 Google Chrome tabs, two of which played YouTube recordings while another pair gushed Apex Legends on Twitch. The Yoga Chromebook C630 likewise had no issues stacking a 4K video, even with those tabs running out of sight.

The Yoga Chromebook C630 scored a 9,021 on the Geekbench 4.1 generally speaking execution benchmark, netting one of the most noteworthy outcomes we've seen from a Chromebook. Just the Acer Chromebook 13 finished that mark with a 10,856, while the Google Pixelbook (7,927) and Pixel Slate (8,071) missed the mark. To put the Yoga Chromebook C630's great execution into point of view, the Chromebook classification normal score (4,018) is not exactly half what the Lenovo accomplished.

On our JetStream JavaScript benchmark, the Yoga Chromebook C630 piled on a score of 172.4, which is additionally more than twofold the Chromebook class normal (78.4). The Pixel Slate (133.2), Pixelbook (145.1) and the Acer Chromebook 13 (169) shut the hole, yet at the same time fell behind the Chromebook C630.

The Intel UHD Graphics 630 inside the Yoga Chromebook C630 gives fair illustrations execution. The Chromebook C630 showed 5,000 fish at a rough 23 outlines for each second on the WebGL Aquarium benchmark test, missing the mark concerning the Pixel Slate (28 fps) and the Chromebook 13 (40 fps).

Chrome OS and Android Apps

As Chromebook equipment alternatives grow, so chromes OS' usefulness. Google as of late added Android application backing to Chrome OS, enabling clients to download their most loved portable applications onto a Chromebook. The outcomes aren't immaculate - applications grew locally for Android don't scale well on a vast, high-goals show (particularly the Yoga Chromebook C630's 4K board) - yet Android applications offer to a more extensive gathering of people, particularly clients who are as of now incorporated into Google's portable working framework. Given Chrome OS' support for versatile applications, we currently emphatically suggest purchasing a 2-in-1 or, somewhere around, a Chromebook with a touch screen.
Battery Life

The Yoga Chromebook C630's vast 4K show negatively affects battery life. With a runtime of only 6 hours and 53 minutes on our Laptop Mag battery test (nonstop web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits), the Chromebook C630 shuts down some time before the normal Chromebook (8:50). Indeed, even the Chromebook 13 (8:15) and the Pixelbook (7:43) - PCs we reprimanded for their beneath normal battery life - outlived the Yoga Chromebook C630. Google's Pixel Slate (9:51) tablet remained controlled for 3 hours after the Chromebook C630 shut down.

Note, the 1080p model of the Yoga Chromebook C630 ought to give altogether better battery life.

Webcam

The webcam situated on the best bezel of the Yoga Chromebook C630 produces dim, grainy pictures under counterfeit lighting. My face looked terrible in a selfie I snapped in our faintly lit office. While the focal point completed a good occupation uncovering the glaring lights hanging above me, it did as such by obscuring my face, which prompted an expansion in visual commotion and spreading of subtleties. The camera caught a greatly improved picture when I drew nearer to a window. With characteristic light streaking into the focal point, the shading came back to my face and I could make out individual strands of hair in my whiskers.

Warmth

The underside of the Yoga Chromebook C630 warmed to 98 degrees Fahrenheit after we played a 15-minute HD video. That just breaks our 95-degree comfort limit. Luckily, whatever is left of the skeleton stayed comfortable, with the touchpad achieving 85 degrees and the focal point of the console beating out at 92 degrees.

Guarantee and Support

Lenovo sells the Yoga Chromebook C630 with a one-year guarantee. Perceive how the organization performed in our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands positioning.

Chromebooks are in a personality emergency. They aren't the little, shabby PCs they used to be. Nowadays, Chromebooks come in all shapes and sizes, and some even pack premium equipment.

On precedent is the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630. Beginning at $540 and including a quad-center Intel Core processor, it's not kidding rivalry for correspondingly estimated Windows 10 scratch pad. There's even a 4K display underway. Will this Chromebook be your solitary workstation?

A large portion of THE PRICE, JUST AS PREMIUM

This is Lenovo's initially shot at a premium Chromebook, yet the organization realizes how to make a solid, beautiful workstation. The Yoga Chromebook is produced using two or three sheets of thick aluminum, shaded an unobtrusive Midnight Blue. It's a decent completion, however it tends to get fingerprints on the cover. It probably won't have the exceptional look of the Pixelbook, however it looks just as premium as the Yoga 730, the most clear Windows 10 elective.

The Yoga Chromebook's superior plan is more than shallow. It additionally feels like a workstation twice its cost. You won't discover creaky or adaptable boards here, which are ordinary in PCs under a thousand bucks. That is even valid for a portion of our top choices in the monetary allowance situated class, for example, the ZenBook 13 UX331UA, Acer Aspire E 15, and Acer Chromebook Spin 15. The Yoga Chromebook exceeds them all.

This is a 15.6-inch workstation, so it has a sizable impression on a work area. Try not to hope to take this on a plane and serenely whip it out on a plate. Regardless of what Lenovo's publicizing may state, you won't have any desire to utilize it long as a tablet, either. The 360-degree pivot comes in helpful, notwithstanding, in the event that you need to pull the console back for media mode or lean it back to utilize the touchscreen. Google has brought over some truly necessary touch capacities to Chrome OS.

Try not to hope to effortlessly utilize it on a plane.

The Yoga Chromebook highlights cut down bezels, which decrease the general size and make for an increasingly lovely screen. The bezels aren't as meager as the Dell XPS 15, however they are the slimmest we've seen on a Chromebook. The Yoga Chromebook is additionally svelte for a 15-inch PC, weighing 4.2 pounds and estimating in at 0.7 inches thick. That is just somewhat thicker and heavier than the Dell XPS 15, or 15-inch MacBook Pro. It's not as light as 15-inch workstations like the LG Gram or Samsung Notebook 9, yet once more, it feels more unbending and strong than both of those gadgets.

The Yoga Chromebook has a standard exhibit of ports — that is, for Chromebooks in 2018. You get a solitary USB-A port, two USB-C ports, a 3.5mm earphone jack, and microSD opening. It's a decent blend of old and new, however the absence of a devoted video yield will trouble a few. In the event that you don't have another USB-C screen, you'll be depending a great deal on dongles.

Extensive KEYBOARD AND TOUCHPAD

We adore the vibe of the Yoga Chromebook's console, and it's similarly as great to utilize. Its smart components feel like other Yoga workstations, a large number of which are extensively more costly than this Chromebook. The format is extensive, not normal for the Acer Chromebook Spin 15, which has a great deal of unused space on the console deck. In the event that you need backdrop illumination, in any case, you'll have to spring for the $1,000 4K demonstrate that is yet to be propelled. That is somewhat baffling since the reasonable Acer Chromebook Spin 15 incorporates that highlight.

The equivalent goes for the touchpad, which is bigger than the Acer Chromebook Spin 15, closer to the extent of the Pixel Slate's. It's not as wide as the MacBook Pro or Razer Blade, yet it's sufficiently expansive to parchment and signal without feeling cramped. Talking about which, motions like the three-finger swipe register immediately, which the Pixel Slate had issues with. Following is likewise smooth and exact gratitude to the glass material. The touchscreen likewise feels brisk and responsive, responding rapidly to squeeze motions and looking over.

The snap of the touchpad is somewhat more intense than we'd incline toward, and we had a couple of issues with coincidental snaps. It's a typical issue with moderate PC touchpad, so we aren't astonished to see it here.

A BIT DIM, A BIT MUTED

Lenovo says the Yoga Chromebook was the first Chromebook with a 4K show. That'd be valid on the off chance that it turned out today, yet we've yet to see that demonstrate go available to be purchased. Starting at now, we're screwed over thanks to a progressively humble 1,920 x 1,080 board. All things considered, for the normal individual, this goals is sufficient. It's likewise an IPS show, so seeing points look great.

It is anything but an excessively brilliant screen, however it was sufficiently splendid to overwhelm the glare in our office. We kept the splendor level around 80 percent by and large. Alternatives like the Pixel Slate, Pixelbook, and HP Chromebook x2 are more brilliant.

Our colorimeter isn't good with Chrome OS, however we noticed issues with our exposed eye. We put on a couple diverse clasps from Solo: A Star Wars Story and saw the hues looked less dynamic than ordinary. To test further, we set the screen next to each other with a MacBook Pro and Pixel Slate. The Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 isn't horrendous, however hues that seemed splendid on those gadgets looked quieted on the Yoga by correlation. You'll need to hang tight for the pending 4K show for the better media machine.

The speakers sound OK, however their position on the base of the gadget makes them more muted than they ought to be.

THE FASTEST CHROMEBOOK OF THEM ALL

Not at all like most Chromebooks, which use Celeron or low-fueled Y-Series processors, the Yoga Chromebook accompanies full-fat Intel Core chips. That implies you can anticipate a huge knock in execution. Be that as it may, there are two or three arrangements to consider. Our audit unit accompanied the Core i5-8250U processor, which is from Intel's most recent and best line of CPUs for ultrabooks.

The Yoga Chromebook is the quickest Chromebook we've at any point utilized. There's no doubt about that. In our Android Geekbench tests, it zoomed past the Y-arrangement processor utilized in the Pixel Slate and even pushed out a similar Core i5 processor in the Acer Chromebook 13.

The test where the Yoga Chromebook truly utilized its muscles is in Speedometer 2.0, which tests how quick web applications load. This is where Chromebooks will in general perform emphatically, however the Yoga Chromebook is on another dimension. Its score is tantamount to the quad-center MacBook Pro 13 or the six-center Dell XPS 15.

The Yoga Chromebook is the quickest Chromebook we've at any point utilized.
On account of the incorporation of the Google Play Store, there's a wide assortment of recreations to browse. Simply don't anticipate that them all should fill in just as they do on your telephone. We did, be that as it may, experiment with Asphalt 9, a standout amongst the most graphically concentrated Android amusements. The PC's Intel coordinated illustrations held up alright to deal with the amusement at the High Quality designs setting, something the Pixel Slate experienced issues with.

There is, be that as it may, a catch. Accessibility. Our $700 audit unit simply happens to be a Best Buy selective, so on the off chance that you need the additional power, that is the place you'll need to turn. The one accessible straightforwardly available to be purchased from Lenovo's site has a slower Core i3-8130U, which begins at $540 and accompanies a 64GB eMMC streak drive. While you can at present expect strong execution out of that choice, it ought to be noticed it's a double center, rather than quad-center, display.

A FULL DAY OF BATTERY — AND THEN SOME

Alternate Chromebooks that utilization an Intel U-arrangement processor, for example, the Acer Chromebook 13, has endured in battery life. For a Chromebook, that absence of battery is a major ordeal. How does the Yoga Chromebook C630 reasonable?

This present Chromebook's battery life exceeds expectations in light web perusing, which should not shock anyone. It went on for 10 hours 50 minutes in our iMacros web perusing test with the screen set at 100 lux. The 56-watt hour battery keeps the PC controlled well over multi day of perusing — to say the very least. It's privilege in accordance with what we've seen from some different Chromebooks with eighth gen Core processors, similar to the Pixel Slate or Acer Chromebook Spin 15.

Anticipate an entire day of battery life, regardless of whether you're performing various tasks.

The equivalent goes for battery life in our video circle test, where we perceive to what extent the Yoga Chromebook can play consistent video for before vanishing. The Yoga Chromebook kept going 12 hours and 42 minutes, which is sufficient to watch the whole of the Lord of the Rings set of three broadened version in one sitting (in the event that you so please). The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 exceeds it with its great 13 and a half hours, as does the XPS 15. Indeed, even still, the Yoga Chromebook isn't a long ways behind.

In Basemark, our most troublesome battery test, the Yoga Chromebook endures a bit. This benchmark is intended to reproduce increasingly serious applications. It kept going only two hours and 44 minutes, which is well behind gadgets like the Acer Chromebook Spin 15 and Pixel Slate. Luckily, there aren't numerous applications for Chrome OS that can pressure a Chromebook like this test does. Generally, you can anticipate an entire day of battery life, regardless of whether you're performing multiple tasks.

OUR TAKE

The Yoga Chromebook C630 is the ideal center ground among premium and moderate. At $540 (or notwithstanding for the $700 Best Buy choice), there aren't numerous Windows 10 PCs we'd prescribe, making a Chromebook like this one an exceptionally strong option. It's not the flashiest Chrome OS gadget we've utilized, yet with execution at the highest point of its class and amazing form quality to boot, it's one of the most effortless to suggest.

Is there a superior option?

There isn't a Windows 10 workstation anyplace close to this value thinks about in construct quality, execution, and battery life. The special case that comes closest is the Acer Aspire E 15, however you won't get close to the compactness, both in battery life and undercarriage estimate.

There are a few genuine rivals in the Chromebook space, be that as it may. The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 is somewhat less expensive than the Yoga Chromebook, however it has a slower processor and more fragile form quality. The nearest contender is the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1, which coordinates the Yoga in pretty much every spec, including cost. It doesn't, in any case, offer an all the more dominant Core i5 form, however the inherent stylus opening is an or more.

To what extent will it last?

This is a futureproofed PC. Its eighth gen processor will last you for a considerable length of time before it gets languid. In the interim, the port choice has enough USB-An and USB-C to deal with the progress of peripherals. The one-year guarantee isn't incredible, however it's turned into the business standard.

Would it be a good idea for you to get it?

Truly. In case you're searching for an exceptional inclination Chromebook — or even only a moderate workstation — the Yoga Chromebook is a phenomenal choice.

Main concern

I don't frequently get the opportunity to survey a workstation that is genuinely the first of its sort, which is the reason I was so eager to test Lenovo's Yoga Chromebook C630, the world's first Chromebook with a 4K show. Luckily, the Yoga Chromebook C630 inspired me with its bursting quick execution and tough yet adaptable aluminum case.

Obviously, those advantages play second fiddle to the workstation's fresh UHD contact screen show, which gives you a chance to encounter Chrome OS with more clearness than any other time in recent memory. While the 15.6-inch show is perfect, I was frustrated to find that contending workstations have boards that are more splendid and progressively beautiful. The Yoga Chromebook C630's battery life additionally experiences driving those pixels.

In the event that you needn't bother with a 4K show yet at the same time need the advantages of an excellent PC, at that point I prescribe the Acer Chromebook 13. Alongside its aluminum skeleton and solid execution, the Chromebook 13 is a bit less expensive and has marginally preferable battery life over the Yoga Chromebook C630. The 12.3-inch Pixel Slate is another great choice for its long battery life and striking showcase, despite the fact that we kept running into Bluetooth issues when matching remote earphones.

In general, the Yoga Chromebook C630 is a phenomenal workstation for substance makers and shoppers, and a standout amongst the best premium Chromebooks you can purchase.
