Lenovo Yoga Book: A laptop without the keyboard
Lenovo does find ways to change the way we use our beloved laptop. From introducing a 360-degree flipping notebook, they now want you to have a laptop without a physical keyboard.
The Lenovo Yoga Book is a fusion of the company’s Yoga design, its pretty watchband hinge, and a slab of digitizer. This device is something you don’t see every day, well, for now. You get a conventional touch display with a large touch glass surface dubbed as the Create Pad.
The Create Pad functions similarly to a Wacom tablet wherein you draw with the included stylus. This also doubles as your virtual keyboard called the Halo Keyboard. It instantly shifts from being a typing space to a sketch with a tap of a button.
Specs-wise, the Yoga Book has a 10.2-inch touch display with a full HD resolution. Inside is an Intel Atom x5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It weighs 680 grams and is just 9.6mm thick. Lenovo claims a 15-hour battery life.
The included stylus is from Wacom with 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity and a 100-degree angle detection. You can replace the tip of the pen with standard ink tips, just like that of a conventional pen, and write on a paper above the surface to digitally transform it.
The Lenovo Yoga Book will come with either Android or Windows software. Pricing is at $499 and $549, respectively. A 4G model will come soon but with a much higher tag.
