Hands on with Lenovo's beautiful Yoga C730 and S940 laptops

Lenovo's new Yoga laptops look incredible. Let's start with the Yoga C730, as that was the one I was most excited about going into CES. After all, it includes a 4K AMOLED display. What's not to love?

The PC has a 15.6-inch screen, and unlike some previous generations, it uses U-series processors, which are from the Intel Whiskey Lake family. It does have a dedicated graphics option though.

I did once again question Lenovo about branding. Remember, Yoga no longer means convertible. Yoga means premium now, and the C means convertible, while S is a slim clamshell laptop. But the C730 sits alongside the S940, and it still doesn't make sense to me why one increased in number and the other didn't. After all, we already have a Yoga 730.

The Yoga C730 is a big machine with its 15.6-inch display, but it also looks massive when compared to the 13.9-inch Yoga S940.

This machine is just plain sexy. There's no AMOLED, but you'll get Dolby Vision HDR instead. The bezels are so tiny, so it even fits in a small footprint for its display size. Next to the C730, you'd guess that the S940 is a 13-inch laptop.

What's also cool is that Lenovo managed to fit the webcam on top, along with an IR camera for Windows Hello. It also has curved glass all along the edges, and it looks amazing.

Both of these machines are just delightful in their own ways. I can't wait to test them out this year.
