Looks like everyones complaining worked and Lenovo listened.
If you go to Lenovo's US website for the Yoga book C930, looks like they updated the product page, specifically the specs section showing "up to 8gb memory" and "512gb storage." Good news for future buyers but bad news for the rest of us who got screwed with the terrible 4gb memory.
Doesn't look like you can order it yet as the current view models only show the 4gb/256gb spec but it appears they're going to offer a 8gb/512gb option soon as the product specs released that info before they were able to sell it.
If thinking of buying, hold off even though the current sale price of $789.99 us tempting if you want a decent spec'ed model. 4gb really isnt enough and should've been 8gb like every other competitions base model computer out there.

Looks good. I hope you are correct. 8GB has been available in other markets, so I don't know why it has taken so long. Similarly, LTE is available in Germany for example.
I had noticed the US prices coming down and thought they were going to discontinue the model! So I hope you are right and I am wrong!

Dang, I bought it at 840
Odd thing, is that it's twice the price in HK - so I got a friend in Baltimore to get it for me and ship it over. Still saved hundreds in the end. I was a bit unimpressed to begin with, knock knock doesn't work for me and the e-ink is bleh. But it's light, display is decent and I think 4gb RAM is fine for what I want to do with it ie internet and light office type stuff whilst travelling. I got a 512G SD card so I have enough storage.

I'm considering the yoga book so I want to know is the 4Gb ram really that bad in daily tasks??
And is the E-ink display responsive or lagging in switching from keyboard to E-reader to drawing panel ???
Thank you in advance

4Gb is good enough for email and light surfing.
E-ink display is sharp and clear (but no lighting), and I don't find the slight lag in switching between keyboard and e-ink to be annoying. But the ereader software is very rudimentary, miles behind ebook readers like Kindle and Kobo. For example, you cannot change the font, and it does not remember the last read page after you close a book/document.
