Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's Yoga C940 is an Intel Project Athena device co-engineered with Intel to perform more like your phone. Lift the lid and it instantly wakes from sleep. The C940's 1080p display is better for battery life and fine for productivity. It's all-around faster than the last model, too, in processing and overall usability.

Pros[**]
  • Long battery life for a two-in-one
  • Fingerprint reader is easy to use
  • Fast Wi-Fi
Cons[**]
  • Only one USB-C port

Reviewers from Expertreviews have found the following[***]:
Lenovo Yoga C940 is the company's flagship 2-in-1 ultraportable for 2020. Available in either 14in or 15in sizes (we review the 14in model here) Prices start at £1,100 for the Core i5-1035G4 with 8GB of RAM. The most expensive model gets you a 4K screen, an Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU. The keyboard is pleasant enough to type on but I'd prefer more travel.

Pros[**]
  • Slim, attractive design
  • Excellent keyboard and touchpad
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

laptopmag[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's Yoga line is the grandfather of 2-in-1 laptops. The Yoga C940 is more of a refinement than an overhaul of last year's C930. At 3 pounds in weight and 0.6 inches thick, it's heavier than the 13.3-inch Spectre x360 13. But it's one of the laptops with best battery life.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous design
  • Bright, vivid 4K display
  • Fast performance
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre speakers

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga 900 series enters in its fifth generation with the Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL. The premium convertible represents the "top of the line" in terms of Lenovo 2-in-1s for the consumer market. For the first time ever, it contains a 14-inch screen and as one of the first Lenovo laptops, it is powered by the latest Intel Ice Lake processors.
Find the original article here.
Pros[**]
  • Bright, high-contrast 14-inch screen
  • Good battery life
  • Good speakers
  • Fast Wi-Fi
Cons[**]
  • Very low-key operation
  • Only one year of warranty

notebookcheck[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 59%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Intel AX201 is functionally identical to the AX200 but with certain hardware changes. The bottom panel is secured by T5 Torx screws and it is very difficult to remove. The sharp edges are very tight even with a sharp edge to make servicing unfriendly for the end user. Opting for the 4K UHD Yoga C940 instead of less expensive FHD SKU will bring some advantages.

Pros[**]
  • Quieter than FHD SKU
  • Fast Wi-Fi 6 connectivity
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • High power consumption when gaming
  • Very short battery life

pcmag[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Lenovo Yoga C940 is a sleek ultraportable with a 360-degree hinge. It's not quite as trim or as well-designed as the competing Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. But its better typing experience, larger screen, and superior audio quality make it worth a look.
Find the original article here.
Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • 360-degree hinge doubles as a sound bar
  • Long battery life
  • USB 3.1 Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports
Cons[**]
  • Slightly heavier than competitors

pcworld[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from Pcworld have found the following[***]:
Lenovo's C940 Yoga 14 is one of the first 2-in-1 laptops using Intel's 10th-generation Ice Lake processors. It's available in either a deep “Iron Gray,” or a lighter, silvery gray that Lenovo calls “Mica” Lenovo built the speaker grille into the laptop's hinge, allowing sound to project outward even when the Yoga is folded around into tablet mode.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design
  • Bright 1080p display
  • Long battery life
  • Built-in speaker grille
Cons[**]
