Lenovo’s Yoga Book C930 ditches the keyboard in favour of an E-Ink display

A lack of clack

Cast your mind back a few years and you might remember Lenovo unveiling an experimental laptop called the Yoga Book, whose digital ‘Halo’ keyboard would illuminate only when you required its services. The Yoga Book C930 is an evolution of that concept, but this time the traditional keyboard has been swapped for a E-Ink display. Backed by Windows 10 and up to a 7th-gen Intel Core processor, there’s no arguing with the C930’s computer credentials, but it’s the device’s versatility that makes it interesting. The 360 hinge means you can flip it over and scribble down notes with a stylus, or detach the lower half and use it as a traditional e-reader. While it’s impossible to replicate the feedback of a proper keyboard, Lenovo has endeavoured to make its travel-less alternative as clicky as possible, and it’ll definitely stand out from the crowd when it launches in September. Prices start at €999.

I'm fascinated by all things tech, but if you were going to leave me on a desert island, I'd probably ask for my Nintendo Switch, a drone, and a pair of noise-cancelling cans to block out the relentless seagull racket. When I'm not on Stuff duty you'll probably find me subscribing to too many podcasts, playing too many video games, or telling anyone who will listen that Spurs are going to win a trophy this season.
