Best Accessories for Lenovo Yoga C930

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

CalDigit TS3 Plus

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.

From $310 at Amazon

USB-A hub

Anker slim 4-port

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.

$10 at Amazon

Wireless mouse

Logitech MX Master 2S

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.

From $71 at Amazon

Wireless keyboard

Logitech K380

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.

From $28 at Amazon

27-inch monitor

Dell UltraSharp U2719D

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.

$456 at Dell

External SSD

Samsung T5 portable

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.

$100+ at Amazon

Laptop messenger bag

Timbuk2 Command

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.

$68+ at Amazon

Laptop sleeve

Tomtoc 360

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.

The Best Accessories From The 2018 Derby Day

Derby Day 2018.

When it comes to spring racing outfits, the devil’s in the details.

On top of the bespoke dresses and designer fits, trackside outfits are made or broken by the styling. Whether it’s the right headwear—traditional hat or modern headpiece? Fussy or sleek? Matching or contrasting?—or the choice of shoes, accessories are everything.

So, of course, when it came to the first day of Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival, Derby Day, we put a close lens on the particulars. Taking note of those trackside—Team ELLE is set up inside the ELLE Lounge at the Birdcage—we tracked hats, headwear, bags, shoes and jewellery.

No accessory left unnoticed. Promise.

Best tablets and accessories for holiday gifts

Image result for Best tablets and accessories for holiday gifts

If you’re still thinking of tablets as strictly for media consumption, games and email, it’s time to take a fresh look at what the latest models can do. Sure, they’re still great for entertainment, but they can also function as simple laptops for getting home office tasks done, too.

If you’re buying for an Apple fan, you’ll have to stick with the company’s iPads ($386 at Amazon). The good news there is there tends to be quite a few good deals on them during the holiday shopping season. Those serious about getting work done, though, should consider something from Microsoft’s Surface line or similar tablets running Windows 10 ($150 at Amazon). And be sure to factor in the cost of a keyboard cover if you want to type; most are sold separately and cost upward of $100.

And don’t forget about Android tablets. They’re great for entertainment and can be significantly cheaper than both their Apple and Windows counterparts.
