Lenovo announced the new Yoga Book at IFA last month with a unique design. The 2-in-1 might not come with the best of the internals, but it offers some very interesting features.
The Lenovo Yoga Book is a unique product – Lenovo claims the designers took cues from literal books for the laptop’s design, so it makes sense when you notice the laptop lacks a keyboard and instead comes with a touch keyboard that also acts as a digitizer.
The 2-in-1 market has been getting quite a few great additions lately, but the Yoga Book tries to differentiate by ditching the hardware keyboard altogether and relying on a software solution instead. You also get the RealPen stylus with it, which allows you to draw or write on the pressure sensitive touch surface.
It truly is a remarkable product – whether it actually works in practical terms would be determined by a review. However, from the looks of it, it holds great potential.
Pricing & Availability
The Yoga Book comes running Windows 10 or Android – depending on the version you choose. Matt Lazare – Yoga Book’s Campaign Manager for Lenovo – also said that Chrome OS might come as an option in the future.
The pricing differs for each version as well – the Android version costs a whole 150$ less than Windows. At 499$ for the Android version and 549$ for the Windows version, this 2-in-1 sure packs a punch for what it’s worth.
Both of the versions are now up for pre-orders at Lenovo’s store. They also come with a few customizable options, so the prices can go higher depending on what you pick.
The pre-orders should start shipping by October 17th, at least for the Windows version.
