This week’s strangest launch has got to be the one of the Lenovo One Mix Yoga. The device is a 7 inch laptop, that converts to a tablet and can also work with a stylus. It feels like the GPD Pocket, or an older mini Sony Vaio or a PMP/MID. The device is up for preorder on GeekBuying for $460.
It runs Windows 10 in full on a 7 inch format, with a Full HD resolution and an Intel x5-Z8350 CPU, coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (eMMC). The device has a rotating hinge, that makes it either a laptop or tablet and comes with a microSD card slot and an original infrared pointer to serve as mouse replacement.
The backlit keyboard is also a big plus and the screen supports input from styli with 2048 levels of pressure. Connectivity is actually not bad, with an USB Type-C port, microUSB and micro HDMI too, plus 3.5 mm audio jack, as well as WiFi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.0. To that we add a microSD card slot, a 6500 mAh battery, everything crammed within 1.1 pounds of weight and a 0.67 inch waistline.
The 360 degree hinge gives you all the freedom you need. The preorder price is $460 and it’ll go up to $583 when it launches. It seems to be pretty comfy to use in slate mode, to be honest.
