Unveiled at IFA 2016 and receiving a ton of compliments and appreciation, the Lenovo Yoga Book has just reached India, where it’s available for $740. We already reviewed the device here, in its Android version and we were totally impressed by its original format and fantastic touch keyboard/touchpad.
You should know that this product is available with either Windows 10 or Android Marshmallow and that it bundles a stylus called Real Pen, ready to offer real ink for you to write with. It has a superb hinge connecting the two sides, each 4 mm in thickness and said hinge lets the screen part be rotated at 360 degrees. This triggers usage patterns like tent, fully open and of course “notebook”.
Made of magnesium and aluminum, this 10.1 incher offers a Full HD resolution and a reasonable brightness. Performance is also pretty good, aided by an Intel Atom X5 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The product has a good battery life of around 8 hours of continuous usage, not bad at all for an 8 mm device, that also includes a touch keyboard.
The best part of the device is that you can use its touchpad to turn ink written notes to digital ones. Just overlap the bundled notepad on the touchpad and write on its paper using the Real Pen and its ink cartridges and then everything will appear on the screen.
