Tablets are incredibly useful devices that can be used for work or recreation anywhere without much trouble ⁠— and Lenovo, one of the world's leading tech developers, makes some of the best tablets and convertibles out there on the market. Pretty much all of Lenovo's tablets are great in one way or another, but overall, we think that the Lenovo Yoga C930 (opens in new tab) is the best one Lenovo has to offer thanks to its incredible display, efficient and effective hardware, and sleek, slim, and compact profile.

Expensive

If you're looking for the best of the best, it doesn't get any better than the Lenovo Yoga C930. The best thing about this convertible is the 14-inch UHD 4K display, which looks absolutely stunning and will make all visual media look phenomenal on it.

In addition to the killer display, it also comes with a capable Intel Graphics 620 GPU, a powerful Intel Core i7-8550U processor, and a hefty 16GB of DDR4 RAM. With specs like that, you'll be able to do tons of work and recreational activities without any problems. It comes with a massive 1TB solid-state drive (SSD), too, so you won't need to worry about running out of room for your files. The icing on the cake is that the device is incredibly light and thin, so carrying it around with you won't be a problem at all.

Not as powerful as other options

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a less expensive, but also less powerful alternative to the Lenovo Yoga C930. It's got a 13-inch QHD display that, while not as great as a 4K option, still makes images and video look noticeably better than standard HD does. Also, it has Intel Graphics 620, an Intel Core i7-8650U, and 8GB of RAM with a 256GB SSD. These specs aren't the best, but they're still really good, and overall the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is a lovely choice if you want something that's still very competent for a lower price.

Best Mid-Range: Lenovo Miix 510

Even more affordable

Reasons to avoid

-
Not as powerful
-
Only an HD display

The Lenovo Miix 510 is for users who want something that's both reasonably affordable and solidly competent in terms of performance. Its 12-inch display is only standard HD, and the processor is an Intel Core i5-7200U, which is weaker than the other processors from the other tablets on this list thus far. This makes sense considering the device debuted in 2016, but it's still good enough to handle most tasks, and the device's 8GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage should be enough for you as long as you don't do anything too intensive and manage your drive space well.

Best for LTE Connectivity: Lenovo Miix 630

The tablet never sleeps

Reasons to buy

Awesome design
+
Phenomenal battery life
+
Around-the-clock LTE
+
Has a keyboard
+
Very affordable

Reasons to avoid

-
Only adequately powerful
-
Only an HD screen

The 12-inch Lenovo Miix 630 is unique in that it has a particular type of processor called a Qualcomm Spacedragon 835. This processor performs adequately, but the special thing about it is that it enables the tablet to be connected to 4G LTE around the clock — all while not compromising battery life. Speaking of battery, you can get close to 20 hours out of the Miix 630, which is a fantastic number. The device only has an HD screen, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD space, but you're trading hardware power for consistent connectivity and battery longevity.

Best Surface Go Alternative: Lenovo IdeaPad D330

Only an HD display

If you're looking for something that's like a Surface Go, then the 10-inch Lenovo IdeaPad D330 will be right up your alley. It's not as powerful as the other tablets on the list so far, but that's to be expected with how small this one is — and when you consider just how much less this 2-in-1 costs than those other tablets, it's easy to see why the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 is impressive in terms of value.

Best Basic: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3

Basic isn't bad

Reasons to buy

Good power for the price

Fantastic battery life
+
Dirt cheap

Reasons to avoid

-
No keyboard
-
Not as powerful
-
Only an HD screen

If none of the above options interest you and you would prefer something that's on the basic side, then the 10-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3 should be what you choose. With only basic graphics hardware, processing power, and memory, it's not going to do much besides enable you to do basic web browsing or multimedia consumption. However, if that's all you're looking for, then you can save some big money by choosing this tablet. It's got a killer 18 hours of battery life as well, which makes it perfect for long sessions of use.

Bottom line

Tablets are incredible devices that every type of person can get good use out of, and Lenovo has some of the best ones available on the market. There's a wide range of different Lenovo tablets out there, and each one does something special that will appeal to different types of users.

Overall, though, we think that the Lenovo Yoga C930 (opens in new tab) is Lenovo's best tablet, as it combines awesome hardware power with a killer 4K display and a sleek, compact style. Most folks tend to want a device that can be used for tons of different tasks, and that's what the Lenovo Yoga C930 does best. Whether you're using it for work, university, or relaxing on the couch, there's nothing that this tablet won't do for you.
