While some Chrome OS devices already come with high-resolution screens, such as Pixelbook and Pixel Slate, there has been no one with a 4K display. Up to Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630, that is. And now you can buy one.
We can talk if you need a 4K screen in your Chromebook (read: you probably don't), but at the end of the day there is always an argument for how great a monitor looks when it is full of pixels. This is no exception.
The 4K panel is part of the Yoga Chromebook C630's 15.6-inch panel that is quite huge for a Chromebook. The large oil display is also convertible, making it a rather large tablet if you want it. A 4.2-pound tablet, to be exact. You will not be a one-hand dealer here.
Otherwise, it has an 8th Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB storage, Bluetooth 4.1, 2 × 2 AC, a pair of USB-C ports, a microSD slot and headphone jack . Something very good for the course here, especially on the higher part of the Chromebook hardware.
The C630 will put you back $ 899.99 and is expected to be shipped "in more than 5 weeks" if you order today. It can mean five weeks exactly, or it can mean much more. Lenovo hasn't announced an exact delivery date yet, so take it for what it's worth. But if you're looking for the first 4K Chromebook, it's your chance now.
