Lenovo Yoga C940 14 review: A 2-in-1 convertible laptop that's just right


Lenovo’s C940 Yoga 14 just might be the laptop Goldilocks would pick if she found it in the Three Bears’ house. It’s neither too much nor too little of what most people need in a 2-in-1 convertible laptop—it’s just right. 

Think about other popular convertible 2-in-1 laptops playing in this space, such as HP’s Spectre x360 13t, or Dell’s XPS 13 2-in-1. The Yoga C940 14 has the bigger display size compared to either, obviously, but it still stays just under the 3-pound mark that suddenly makes a laptop more of a luggable (and don’t even ask about the weight of most 15-inch convertibles). It doesn’t sacrifice keyboard travel in pursuit of thinness, and its speakers aren’t godawful like those of the LG Gram 2-in-1. It even has a holster for its included stylus.

Of course, even Goldilocks had character flaws—sneaking into a house and messing with everyone’s stuff is fundamentally not cool—and so does the C940 Yoga 14. The port selection is on the skimpy side, the trackpad is too rigid, and the display, while vibrant, is highly reflective. But if you’re looking for a convertible that makes no major sacrifices, the C940 Yoga 14 is well worth considering.
