Re: Where’s that 8gb 512gb model?

Nice!  I hope it's not too expensive.

Re: Where’s that 8gb 512gb model?

That is my biggest concern. Perhaps it’ll be an entirely new model - who knows.

Re: Where’s that 8gb 512gb model?

Looks like they took away the specs "up to 8GB and up to 512GB." Perhaps this version is now cancelled or they took it way until they have a SKU available to avoid confusion.

Re: Where’s that 8gb 512gb model?

anyone heard anything new?   i'm not seeing any reference to the 8gb model on the webpage at all now...

...just pure speculation on my part: But might this beefier model be held back a bit to coincide with the software release that will finally bring pdf annotation (last thread I saw had comments from lenovo support of Oct as target date for that release)?

They haven’t even received stock in this model for weeks. They lost my business altogether because I was tired of waiting.

Re: Where’s that 8gb 512gb model?

Here's the transcript from a chat with a sales rep a moment ago:

[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:23:53 PM): Hello, thanks for contacting Lenovo Sales. My name is [omitted] (Rep ID: --------85). At the conclusion of this chat, there will be a brief, two-question survey, scoring from 1-10 where 10 is the best. Please be sure to ask about our flexible payment options!
Me (9/5/2019, 1:25:04 PM): Hi! I've been interested in a yoga book c930 for awhile, and thought I'd actually get one after the announcement in the Spring of a model with 8gb RAM and a larger SSD. When will that be available to order?
[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:25:05 PM): How can I best assist you with your purchase today?
[omitted]. (9/5/2019, 1:26:49 PM): we do not have a confirmed date but I would estimate closer to the holidays
Me (9/5/2019, 1:27:16 PM): Ah. okay. thank you!

Guess we'll see if that sticks, huh?

On the other hand, it does fit with my earlier speculation that a model with increased RAM would come out about the same time (or immediately following) the fall release of the software update allowing for PDF annotation on the e-Ink screen (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Yoga-Book-C930/New-Yoga-Book-Release/m-p/4512259/highlight/true#M998).

Ach well.  I've been making do with my old 11e as a portable beater for a while... guess i can go a while longer, eh?   

Did you actually throw in the towel californian?
