Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS unboxing and first impressions

Windows on ARMThis week, I've been attending Qualcomm's Snapdragon Technology Summit (I actually recorded this video before that). One thing that I noticed was that all Qualcomm employees were using Lenovo's Yoga C630 WOS, one of only two PCs on the market with a Snapdragon 850.

The reason that they weren't using the Samsung Galaxy Book2 is twofold: the Yoga C630 includes 8GB RAM while the Galaxy Book2 has 4GB, and the Yoga C630 has a convertible form factor while the Galaxy is a tablet.

And that's the point; this is a real laptop. You don't have to worry about the lapability issues that come from Surface Pro-style tablets, or the memory issues that come from having only 4GB RAM.

I've been using this machine all week, and there are some pros and cons. For one thing, I really love the keyboard. In fact, all of the hardware is great. The biggest issue is that I use Google's Chrome browser, and while performance is much better than on the Snapdragon 835, it still struggled in emulation sometimes.
