The Lenovo Yoga C940 is the middle ground between ultraportable two-in-ones and the larger screens and faster performance of desktop replacement laptops. Its slim body makes it more portable than older 15.6-inch notebooks and, while it's around 4.4 pounds (2 kg), it's still lighter on your lap and in your bag. The C940's combination of a six-core processor and lower-end midrange discrete graphics can handle productivity tasks to photo and video editing.

Lenovo's Yoga C940 15 is a 2-in-1 laptop with a 15.6-inch display. It has the same eight-core Core i9 processor as the XPS 15 and Spectre x360 15. It's slightly slower across our suite of gaming benchmarks, likely thanks to the slower CPU.

  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Dolby Vision HDR

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C940 (15-inch) is one of the few premium consumer laptops with a discrete GPU. At 4.4 pounds and 14 x 9.4 x 0.7~0.8 inches, it's a little too bulky compared with other 15-inch laptops. The 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 display is surprisingly bright and relatively colorful.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful performance and graphics
  • Bright 15.6-inch display
  • Strong speakers
Cons[**]
  • Battery life could be better

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Lenovo has translated the 14-inch Yoga C940 chassis perfectly for a 15.6-inch form factor. The Lenovo is thicker than the Dell XPS 15 by almost 3 mm while maintaining roughly the same footprint and weight. While a 4K UHD IPS option is available, we're unsure of the exact panel or how its colors compare to our FHD SKU.

Pros[**]
  • Slim bezels and 360-degree hinges
  • Full-size NumPad
  • Quiet fan noise when on battery power
  • Comfortable keyboard and clickpad
Cons[**]
  • Low-contrast display
  • Relatively large clickpad

pcmag[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
Handsomely styled in dark aluminum that Lenovo calls Iron Grey, the Yoga measures 0.77 by 14 by 9.4 inches. The base model of the big C940 features a six-core, 2.6GHz (4.5GHz turbo) Core i7-9750H processor. It combines a shallow, snappy typing feel with a handy numeric keypad.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, attractive design
  • Full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) screen
  • Dolby Atmos speakers
Cons[**]
  • Lack of SD or microSD card slot

pcworld[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C940 15 is a decent choice for those who want a luxurious workhorse PC without giving up what Windows does best. Its all-aluminum body, along with its sharp edges and flat sides, only serve to underscore the laptop's heft. While it's nice that Lenovo included a USB-A port on this laptop, its use of a proprietary charger is a drag.

Pros[**]
  • Bright, colorful display
  • Sleek design
  • Great keyboard and trackpad
  • Comfortable touchpad
Cons[**]
  • Lack of USB-A port
  • Lackluster battery life
