It has a 10.2-inch IPS touchscreen supporting a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels on which you can draw or take notes using an AnyPen device.

The tablet can be paired with a Create Pad keyboard made of a magnesium-aluminum alloy and which features haptic feedback. On the front side of the tablet can be found a 2MP camera, while on the back is located a more advanced 8MP camera. The Yoga Book measures 10.1 x 6.72 x 0.38 inches, it weights 1.52 lbs and has a battery that keeps it alive for up to 13 hours.

The Miix 510 ($599) measures 11.81 x 8.07 x 0.39 / 0.62 inches (with keyboard), it has a 12.2-inch touchscreen screen protected by Gorilla Glass and which supports a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.
