Lenovo Yoga Chromebook Review – Premium 15″ Chromebook at a Nice Price

by birtanpublished on March 30, 2021

This is Lisa from mobile tech review and finally that happy in between for a nice chrome book that isn't cheeseball and plastic with a bliss display but it's not as expensive as Google's on pixel book which is extremely expensive given the functionality of a Chromebook this is the Lenovo yoga Chromebook which is model number C 630 and this is a 15.6 inch Chromebook so it's a big boy among the Chromebooks it's got an aluminum metal casing this lovely midnight blue finish which will show fingerprints in two minutes after you handle it alas but inside you can get either a full HD or a 4k display either way it's gonna be

Glossy and it's gonna be a touchscreen you'll get hinges on it up to an Intel Core i5 processor and the pricing starts at around $500 this is pretty good we're gonna look at it now so there are three configuration options for this Chromebook no matter which one you pick you're gonna get eight gigs of RAM ddr4 24 hundred megahertz it's a good amount of RAM for a Chromebook actually 128 gigs of e MMC storage which is what Chromebooks use it's sort of more like an SD card in terms of speed not as fast as an SSD a lot less expensive both the RAM and that storage are soldered on

Board so you can't upgrade those afterwards and you're gonna get Intel's 72 65 AC Wi-Fi which is an older dual band card with bluetooth 4.1 but doesn't worry me too much so for five hundred ten dollars like I said you get an Intel eighth generation Core i3 CPU and if you want to spend $100 more you can move up to a core i5 which really feels zippy that's what we have and I haven't seen Android apps run this fluidly on anything less than a core i5 so for those who actually particularly if you're interested in playing Android games those are the most demanding

Things pretty much you probably do want that Core i5 and for 100 bucks you're still looking at six hundred and eleven dollars or so on lenovo's website currently that's pretty good considering the fact that you get on all metal casing on this and aluminum chassis with the same kind of nice hinges robust ones that Lenovo's using on their ThinkPad laptops and a very good keyboard one point four millimeters of key travel and a lovely tractor typically Chromebooks do have good trackpad so that's not surprising if you do want to go from that full HD

Display up to the 4k display which is slightly madness that's $785 the thing is this interesting if you're by windows laptop with a 4k display on an eighth gen Core i5 you'd be spending a lot more money granted they have a slower storage here and stuff but you know nice and it's a good-looking display it's not the brightest thing I've ever seen it's under 300 nits and it's philosophy so you're gonna notice that but for indoor use it's absolutely finance not one of those go blind displays you see on the really low-end Chromebooks this one is

Relatively speaking for Chromebooks it's eye candy now it's exciting is in the high end space there are not a lot of offerings and sometimes the prices get almost illogically expensive I mean you know the pixel book for example when you're spending looking at spending over a thousand dollars on a Chromebook and and even more depending on which configuration you go for yeah so for this one it's not insanely expensive yet you've got the performance you've got the display you've got the ability to run Android apps more fluently though Android on Chrome is still a work in

Progress not all of them are going to be compatible or really designed to be running on big screens with keyboard and trackpad support not so much but hey pub G works which is an achievement first time seen it work this well as Chromebooks go it's heavy because in part is 15 inches and not so many amore that big 4.2 pounds which is 1.9 kilograms but in the world of Windows laptops in that size range that's actually relatively speaking very light the build quality on this is robust enough there's no flex there's no squeaks it's kind of premium Lenovo

Experience like you'd expect ports on this not they typically you need a lot of ports with a Chromebook but you've got your headphone jack here a USB see just us PC not Thunderbolt 3 and USB a ports and a micro SD card slot so pretty much the bases are covered for what you would want you can open up the internals and I'll show those to you but there's not a whole lot that you're gonna do here in terms of upgrading inside it has a 56 watt hour battery which is a pretty standard capacity for an ultrabook these days and if you get the full HD display

Lenovo claims that you might get up to 10 hours now we have the 4k display which gets considerably worse battery life I can't tell you how close Lenovo is remember that manufacturers always over claim with battery life so I would expect that full HD one probably to be around eight hours of battery life which among Chromebooks isn't super impressive but again this was more powerful bigger screen you get the idea our 4k display runs about six hours on a charge yeah so for Chromebooks not so great my Windows laptops not so bad as ever with

Chromebooks you have to decide if this is the right product for you I think this is for those who have had Chromebooks and have liked the experience everything pretty much is going to depend on your internet connection because this is an operating system that is built around the Chrome web browser whatever you want to do you're gonna do it within the web browser be a Google Docs or anything else some services like say Google Docs does support offline work so you're not absolutely in peril without a Wi-Fi connection but you get the idea you

Can't put a dummy Photoshop on this you can't do blender renders on no matter how powerful the hardware might be so that's what it is with Chromebooks taking off the bottom cover is pretty straightforward there are nine torques t-50 all visible here unscrew them there are some clips that hold this on and now I could all sound a metal so that's the inside of our cover and there are an intern our internals here's the battery so should you need to replace it down the road you can hear our our stereo speaker units in rubber shock mounts that's nice so they won't vibrate too

Much by the way good sound on these nice loud and full so it is a good media consumption machine you want to watch videos YouTube Netflix whatever it is you can do that here's our CPU heatsink here's our fan all normal stuff and this is the Wi-Fi card which is socketed and like I said the RAM and the storage are soldered on board so that's about it for what you're gonna do with this laptop once you open it up so there you have it the Lenovo yoga Chromebook model c6 30 it is really nice if you're looking for a Chromebook that kind of feels like a premium Windows laptop but you don't

Want Windows OS and you still don't want to spend that much money I mean they did a really good job here and the performance is nice not that Chromebooks often feel slow but some of the lower end ones still can feel so especially when running Android apps and emulation so yeah good I'm Lisa from Mobile tag review be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more cool tech videos and thumbs up if you like this vid
