I found this Yoga Book C930 Laptop@Wiki » from Lenovo is a Laptop and an E Ink eBook Reader. I added it to our wiki. It uses a 64bit Windows 10 OS.

I have one of these coming on Friday.

The retail price for it - $999 USD - is a little much in my eyes. I was able to get a like new one for half of that.

This is compelling because of a new update Lenovo pushed. The e-ink screen can now "mirror" what the other screen has.

That is, it can mirror Windows 10. Including apps like your Kindle or Nook apps. Browser. Etc.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread but I'd love to know if anyone has one of these devices and what they think of it? We're now pretty much into the second hand market as these are no longer made.

However, Lenovo look like they have been busy with updates. See the eInk software update below, it looks like an awful lot has been added since release, all the way up to November 2020... you can now read ePubs for example and mirror the Windows 10 screen onto eInk (maybe?).. Any feedback from anyone out there who has one would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!

I got interested in this device and then my enthusiasm was rapidly destroyed when I learned that the eInk portion of the screen is not backlit. That means that you're really stuck with using the device as a windows tablet in a dark location and not a laptop.

The other problem is the lack of integration between the eInk and Windows laptop part, you can't use the eInk sketchpad to control say Autocad... like a Wacom device.

Still, Lenovo are to be commended for the idea.. maybe next time we'll see a better implementation!
