Product Overview

Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL is a high-end 14-inch 2-in-1 convertible laptop. Powered by 10th-gen Intel Core processors, the C940-14IIL offers an abundance of power in an ultra-thin CNC aluminum chassis barely over half an inch thin.
A unique feature of the C940 is the rotating sound bar with Dolby Atmos that maintains front-facing projection whichever position the user leaves the device with its 360-degree hinge.
Despite its thinness as well as its narrow bezels that measure less than 4mm, the C940-14IIL offers a suite of I/O options, including two Thunderbolt 3 ports and WiFi 6.
Alongside the 14-inch model, Lenovo also introduced a 15.6-inch C940 that shares much of the same features.

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
  • Excellent performance
  • Long battery life
  • Fast Wi-Fi
Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3

The Yoga C940's 4.1 x 2.6-inch touchpad gets the job done. It's not the largest touchpad we've used, but the surface is responsive. Lenovo's stylus slots into the rear of the laptop when not in use. The C940 continues the Yoga tradition of having long battery life.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 4K display
  • Sleek design
  • Long battery life
  • Long-lasting stylus
Cons
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
Despite the glossy surface, the Yoga C940 can be used outdoors, since the LCD is bright enough. Using it outside however means having to live with annoying reflections and the sun should be avoided completely. The viewing-angle stability is – typical for an IPS panel – very good. The Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 is the fastest integrated GPU available in the recent Intel Ice Lake processors.

Pros
  • Matte IPS panel
  • High-quality case
  • Very good speakers
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • Slow CPU performance under continuous load
  • No dedicated memory

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 without damaging the chassis. The sharp edges are very tight even with a sharp edge to make servicing unfriendly for the end user.

Pros
  • Full sRGB coverage
  • Fast Wi-Fi 6 connectivity
  • Decent battery life
Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3

Pros

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following***:
The Lenovo Yoga C940 14 is one of the first laptops using Intel's 10th-generation Ice Lake processors. It's slightly behind some of its convertible competitors in raw performance, but it's a clear cut above last year's 2-in-1 laptops. With a bright 14-inch display, strong battery life and a great keyboard, it's solid in all the ways you'd want a premium laptop to be.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Excellent battery life

Cons
  • Mediocre trackpad
  • No dedicated speakers

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Lenovo Yoga C940 runs Windows 10 Home and, as a result, includes bloatware like Netflix and Candy Crush. The laptop comes with a one-year limited warranty, though it can be extended for an additional cost. The Dolby Atmos-powered sound system did not disappoint this YouTube addict.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 1080p display
