Lenovo's Yoga C930 is a 13.9-inch convertible laptop with a premium build and performance hardware inside. Its 4K touch display, rotating soundbar hinge, and all-day battery life contribute to a well-rounded PC experience, but you can certainly add some accessories to make a day with the C930 easier. Whether it's extra connectivity, padded protection, or a larger display, you should find something worthwhile.
Thunderbolt 3 dock
Plug in with Thunderbolt 3 and get an extra 15 ports for your laptop, including five USB-A 3.1, two USB-C 3.1, DisplayPort 1.2, Ethernet, and two Thunderbolt 3. You'll be able to easily connect all your peripherals, including multiple monitors, and the dock will charge your laptop at up to 85 W.
This tiny USB-A hub multiplies the single USB-A port on your Yoga C930 by four, and it's small enough to fit into your pocket when you're on the move. Transfer speeds can hit 5 Gbps thanks to USB-A 3.0, and its relatively affordable price makes it extremely popular for anyone who has a lot of devices to connect.
It has a smart ergonomic design, plenty of buttons, comfortable input, and your choice of connecting with Bluetooth or a 2.4 GHz USB dongle. Link the mouse with three devices simultaneously for quick switching, and enjoy precision tracking with Logitech's Darkfield sensor. Battery lasts for up to 70 days and charges quickly when it finally runs out.
Using your Yoga C930 as the centerpiece of a workstation usually means you'll want an external keyboard. The Logitech K380 is a quality wireless option that remains relatively cheap, bringing a comfy typing experience for all-day users. Keys are cupped, there's ample travel, and you can connect to three devices for quick switching.
Grab Dell's UltraSharp U2719D external monitor for a larger 27-inch picture that hits 1440p. It has almost no bezel, color is deep, and it's quite thin to help save room on your desk. An 8ms response time provides a snappy image, and you can connect with DisplayPort or HDMI.
If hard-disk drive (HDD) speeds seem too low, an external solid-state drive (SSD) should be a much better choice. Get up to 540 MB/s read and write speeds, connect with a USB-C or USB-A port, and slip the small drive into your pocket when you head out. Sizes range from 250 GB to 2 TB, with prices rising accordingly.
Laptop messenger bag
The Timbuk2 Command is a messenger bag made specifically for safely toting around a laptop alongside a bunch of other gear, thanks to a 22-liter size and smart pocket design. It's available in a ton of different colors, it's made from durable polyester that keeps out the elements, and it has durable aluminum hooks to keep things closed up tight when on the go.
The Yoga C930 has a sturdy aluminum build, but that doesn't mean it's immune to drops and scratches. This zippered sleeve from Tomtoc has thick padding around all outside edges and corners and has a polyester finish to keep out water. A zippered pocket on the front holds your smaller accessories.
If we're picking some accessories
All of the above accessories can complement Lenovo's Yoga C930 in some way, but if you're looking for a couple to help get off to a good start, go with a bit of protection and extra connectivity. Tomtoc's 360-degree sleeve (opens in new tab) is a great way to keep bulk down while keeping the C930 from scratches and bumps, while the Timbuk2 Command (opens in new tab) is a quality laptop bag you can sling over your shoulder. To truly turn your C930 into a workstation, check out CalDigit's TS3 Plus (opens in new tab) Thunderbolt 3 dock that brings a ton of extra ports and charging.
