Lenovo Yoga C630 Review: Can Windows On ARM Handle A CES Roadtrip?

The Yoga C630 is a portentous little laptop: not because it’s loaded with overpowered technology, but because it isn’t. It’s the new flagship of the WOS platform—full, Windows-powered laptops running on the ARM Snapdragon chips primarily seen in smartphones.
