In our online streaming battery test, the C930's battery life is impressive at 12 hours and 26 minutes. With mixed use with the display at 70 percent brightness, I was able to work all day off and on for 8 hours and still had some battery to spare. Your results are going to vary depending on what you're doing, but the results are nonetheless impressive. Keep in mind, though, that my C930 had a full HD display.

How does this compare to the past 2 2-1 deals Best Buy had? The Spectre hp and dell, both were 4K and had 16GB of ram as well. The dell was way cheaper and the hp was only $100 more I believe

This is a very good laptop, but skip this 1080p version and go for the 4k one. The 4k screen with Dolby vision is stunning

For comparison, I personally feel the yoga C930 is far superior than the hp or the Dell, both in terms of specs and in terms of design aesthetics

That seems right, however if battery life isn't too critical for you, I would suggest sacrifice a few hours of battery life and go for the 4K screen

This is a great deal on the C930.

I just bought the Yoga 920 (1080p) and love it - the c930's 1080p screen is supposed to be similar. For me, the biggest allure here is the upgraded speaker, built in rechargeable pen and additional RAM. You can get open box versions of the 920 for less than $600 @ bestbuy.

For those hesitant on the screen: I found the 1080p screen to be perfectly fine in terms of sharpness. Benefits of 4K are hardly noticeable unless you go side-by-side (yes, there is a difference). For reference, I upgraded from a yoga 2 pro, which has higher resolution (3200x1800) and I could hardly tell the difference, even with larger screen size on the Yoga920. Also, keep in mind that besides additional $ cost, you will incur worse battery life with a 4K screen - 2+ hours lost.

Most people are charmed by the allure of crisp visuals & that Dolby Vision, but i opted for the better battery life & lower cost. Smilie

I completely agree with you. This model is very good compared to dell and HP 2 in 1's. I returned dell 2-1 because of fan sound and heating

Second that - been a year on the 920 and love it, otherwise I'd jump on the C930 for the speakers alone.

12GB of RAM, odd configuration.
Wondering if 4 is soldered and the other slot has 8 in it or the other way around. I just got a Thinkpad E485 since I don't care about battery life and wanted the cheapest way to a "7" processor (it's an AMD Ryzen), 16GB of RAM, a 1080p screen and a 1 TB SSD. While the case top is mixed plastic/magnesium and the rest is plastic, the keyboard, screen and touchpad are good and so far, it's great. My last ThinkPad Edge was 8 years old and still humming. For $650 out the door, I have absolutely 0 complaints an didn't want to spend $1k+ on something that gets light use. Those X1's are awesome but their RAM is soldered. Everything in my Thinkpad is easily replaceable once you pull the bottom off including the battery. For $450 to get a Ryzen 7, 500GB HD and 8 GB of RAM, that's a decent deal and not hard to upgrade.
