Cutting the image of an all-out laptop, the Lenovo Yoga Book is themed the most productive 2-in-1 ever produced, touted as the next generation tablet enthusiastic tablet users have been longing for.
It’s design is a complete departure from the traditional slate design for tablets we have been accustomed to for the past 5yrs.
Measuring in at just 9.6mm when closed, it is indeed thin and light. When opened, you’re greeted by two surfaces – a 10.1in IPS LCD 1080x1920p screen on one half and a black expanse of space on the other half. This space doubles as the halo keyboard; which appears as a touch surface with the keys illuminated by backlight and giving haptic feedback upon touch.
With the touch of a key, the same expanse of space becomes a plain surface that’s compatible with the Wacom digitizer pen/stylus. This would enable you take notes, annotate and draw. But the sweet part here is you can actually place a sheet of paper on this space and write with your normal ink pen and the Yoga Book digitizes your writeup on the screen.
