With a flick of your hand, the Lenovo Yoga C640 easily transforms into a tablet thanks to its 360-degree rotation of the touchscreen.

On the right side there is one USB 3.1 port and one USB Type-C. The novelty is optionally equipped with a 4G-module and support for Wi-Fi 6. According to the manufacturer, this laptop can work up to 20 hours on a single battery charge, whether this is actually shown by tests.

This model is available in 14- and 15-inch Full HD configurations with touchscreen configurations. The body of the C740 is made entirely of metal, which indicates the premium direction of this model. The screen, like other devices in the YOGA series, can be opened up to 360 degrees, which allows you to turn your laptop into a large tablet. The Yoga C740 hardware platform is based on the same as the Yoga C 640 on Intel tenth generation Core i7 or Core i5 processors.

There are no discrete video cards in the specifications, so you will have to be content with the video cards built into the processor. The amount of RAM depends on the configuration and is 8 or 16 GB.Data storage can be either PCIe SSD up to 1 TB, or hybrid Intel Optane: 32 GB of flash memory plus a 512 GB hard drive. Among the features of this model, note the TrueBlock Privacy camera shutter and a fingerprint scanner, the laptop supports Rapid Charge technology and works up to 15 hours without recharging, again according to the manufacturer.

The autonomy of the laptop, according to the developer, should be 17.5 hours for the laptop version with Full HD screen and 9.5 hours for the 4K version.

Lenovo Yoga S740

In our opinion, the most interesting model presented at IFA 2019, since it contains not only an integrated graphics processing solution, but also a full-fledged discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX250 video card, which is quite capable of coping with many computer games, albeit only at medium-low detail settings.

The Yoga S740 series, like the C740, is represented by two models with a display diagonal of 14 and 15.6 inches, but unlike the C series, the Yoga S740 does not have a built-in stylus and the ability to connect an external one. The Yoga S740 series is mainly aimed at those users who are looking for a laptop no longer only for work, but also for using it at home for multimedia. The aluminum case of this laptop measures 35.7 x 23.4 x 1.8 cm and weighs 1.9 kg. On the sides are two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one USB 3.1, a microSD card reader and a combo audio jack.

Laptop upgrade Lenovo Yoga

In order to clean the cooling system or replace a drive installed in a laptop, it is necessary to partially disassemble the laptop. To do this, first of all, you will have to unscrew all the screws, this is 7 or 9 pieces depending on the specific model, then with a plastic card go around the perimeter to release the bottom from the latches, after which you can carefully separate the bottom panel from the main body.

Interestingly, the new series of Lenovo Yoga C and S laptops has limited upgrade options, you can only replace the drive, as for the processor, video card and RAM, they are soldered on the motherboard and therefore cannot be replaced. You shouldn’t disassemble a laptop on your own, for example, to read the cooling system, replace a dead battery, and even more so to upgrade components, it is best not to entrust this work to specialists of service centers, for example, such as lenovremservice.ru
