Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 with 4K Screen Debuts at $899.9

Back in August, the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook 630 debuted with a 15.6-inch FullHD display and the promise of a 4K option. The base model went on sale in October, the availability of the 4K version from Lenovo can now be directly order this 2-in-1 Chromebook with a 3840 x 2160 touchscreen for $899.99.

Lenovo’s website says that any orders placed today ship out “in more than 5 weeks”.  You can get one of the most powerful Chromebooks along with an ultra-high resolution screen: The first 4K display on a Chromebook.

Inside are the same bits of hardware in the 1080p model currently selling for, but out of stock, $719.99. That means you get this configuration:

  • 8th-Generation Intel Core i5-8250U processor (which uses a fan for cooling)
  • Integrated Intel UHD Graphics 920
  • 8 GB of memory
  • 128 GB of eMMC storage
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2 x 2 MIMO)
  • 720p HD camera
  • 2 USB Type-C ports, 1 USB Type-A port
  • MicroSD card slot
  • Backlit keyboard (an upgrade from the 1080p model sold at Best Buy)

Essentially, you’re paying $180 for the higher resolution display and the backlit keyboard (an upgrade from the 1080p model sold at Best Buy), which isn’t bad but it’s not something most users probably need either. If you have access to 4K video content, it might be worth the upgrade.
