Yoga C640’s display was the first aspect that caught my eye first. It is bright and vivid at full brightness. I don’t notice any distortion when shifting the viewing angles. In my opinion, 13.3 inches is a comfortable size to have one window open with enough room to work. The bezels are also very small. It is also comfortable if you want to move it to a stand mode. Watching videos on this device is a joy at full brightness as well.
As you lower the display from full brightness the display becomes less vivid. If you are looking for a gorgeous display, then keep it at full brightness. I prefer to keep it at a comfortable 50%. I do not have any other complaints about the display. The display is tied for my favorite part of the device so far.
The keyboard is my second favorite aspect of this device. The keyboard is clicky, and tactile with good key travel. Although the screen is small I have not noticed the keyboard is any larger or smaller than the other 15.6-inch laptop I also use. I felt comfortable on this keyboard shortly after I started with it.
This laptop is thin and well built. It’s not the lightest device I’ve ever lifted, however, it feels solid. I don’t feel like there is a lot of wasted space. Lenovo did a nice job at building a device that is portable, not flimsy, but doesn’t break that bank. If you’re looking for a 13.3-inch device then this one does a great job at making the device feel compact but well built.
Final First Thoughts:
This device caught my attention because it was inexpensive, well-featured, and compact. It has impressed me very high so far. There are some aspects I still need to test though such as battery life, speed, and how well it fits into my life.
Please let me know if there is anything you want me to test. I will do my best to test everyday usability such as performance, but I want to test this computer how I feel it is meant to be used. Video editing or gaming is not this device’s focus, therefore I will not be going into that heavily. I will go into more detail regarding the use case of this device and specifications it packs in it.
