Lenovo has finally launched the new Yoga Book at the IFA, Berlin 2016. This new hybrid laptop brings a lot of new things to the table. For starters, it comes in two versions i.e. Android and Windows 10. The other very important thing is the new keyboard which has no physical keys. The keyboard area is basically a pressure sensitive screen which can convert into a drawing pad with just a push of a button.

As you can see, the Lenovo Yoga Book does pack quite a punch. The Intel Atom X5 itself is a great processor and then this whole thing is coupled with 4GB RAM which is enough to provide some great functionality and snappiness to the device. One of the best things on this hybrid is the 10.1-inch 1080p display. The small screen size maintains the portability factor of the hybrid laptop. Talking about the battery life, as per Lenovo, the Yoga Book will be able to run for 12 hours with a single charge with normal usage which is great.
Lenovo Yoga Book Keyboard
Coming back to the highlighted feature of the hybrid laptop, the keyboard is replaced by a pressure sensitive screen and modifications in the respective OS that will learn your typing style and it will adapt accordingly to provide you the best experience.
This is the first time that any manufacturer went with completely removing the physical keyboard and going with the keyboard on screen form factor and I must say, Lenovo did think it out very well. The pressure sensitive screen itself is so sensitive that it doesn’t need a powered stylus.
So Lenovo will provide you with a stylus with the 2-in-1 laptop, but you will not need to charge it. The variations in the drawing will be decided on the pressure applied on the screen which is great. The keyboard itself will appear on the secondary screen.
Lenovo Yoga Book will be made available in two versions i.e. Android which will sell for $499 and the Windows 10 version that will cost $549.
