It’s been over three weeks since Lenovo unveiled the sleek design of its Yoga Book at IFA 2016. The impressively designed convertible laptop features a touch sensitive halo keyboard, a dual stylus and a flat writing surface for sketching and drawing. Lenovo, along with its Yoga Book release, also introduced two other, brand new convertible laptops as well.
Two versions of the Lenovo Yoga Book can be pre-ordered:
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow for $499
- Windows 10 Home for $549.
Both devices come with a built-in Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processor, 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 64GB of internal storage space, a powerful 8500mAh battery with 13-15 hours of power backup on a single charge and a 10.1-inch 1920×1200 IPS LCD.
Lenovo Yoga Book also comes with a freestyle writing stylus. To no one’s surprise, the device is still cheaper than iPad Pro as well as the Surface 3. Doodling is easier and more engaging with the integrated Wacom style pad rather than the conventional draw-on-screen function which gives the device an artistic appeal. The device is also capable of storing and recording sketches when even when asleep.
Users might struggle with the completely haptic keyboard, though. Despite the company’s claim of getting used to the new technology halo keyboard within two hours, it seems highly unlikely — even with the integrated autocorrect functionality. It is safe to say that users who significantly rely on getting their words down accurately on a page shouldn’t consider purchasing this device.
The shipping of the Lenovo Yoga Book starts in the coming weeks for both models. You can pre-order the Android Yoga Book or the Windows 10 Home Yoga Book in Carbon black while the Android version is available in Champagne Gold as well.
