While certain Chrome OS devices already come with high-resolution displays—like the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate—there’s hasn’t been one with a 4K display. Until the Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630, that is. And now you can buy one.
We can talk about whether you need a 4K display in your Chromebook (read: you probably don’t), but at the end of the day, there’s always an argument for just how damn good a display looks when it’s absolutely packed with pixels. I’m sure this one is no exception.
That 4K panel is part of the Yoga Chromebook C630’s 15.6-inch panel, which is pretty massive for a Chromebook. That big ol’ display is also convertible, turning this into a pretty huge tablet if you want it. A 4.2-pound tablet, to be exact. You won’t really be one-handing this one.
Otherwise, it has an 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.1, 2×2 AC, a pair of USB-C ports, a microSD card slot, and headphone jack. Pretty much par for the course here, especially on the higher end of Chromebook hardware.
The C630 will set you back $899.99, and is expected to ship “in more than 5 weeks” if you order today. That could mean five weeks exactly, or it could mean a lot more. Lenovo hasn’t announced an exact shipping date yet, so take that for what it’s worth. But if you’re looking to grab the first 4K Chromebook, now’s your chance.
