Lenovo confidences to reignite the 2-in-1 laptop / tablet market with the new Lenovo Yoga Book. It surely stands out, appreciations to its unique touch surface which flip among being a keyboard and a writing and sketching pad. Here are some initial impressions of the device.
Lenovo yoga book: UK price and availability:
There are two models of the Lenovo Yoga Book, one is Android 6.0 that prices £449, and the other which runs Windows 10 and costs £549. They will together go on sale in few weeks’ time in September, and with both, you have a selection of Gunmetal Grey and Champagne Gold.
Features and design:
The size of Lenovo Yoga Book may be a bone of argument, though. It has a 10.1in screen that means it’s debatable too small for serious productivity. The casing is made up of magnesium alloy and is just 4mm thick at its thinnest point. When folded shut, it’s just 9.6mm thick and hinge can be folded either way, so you can also flip the screen behind the keyboard to utilize it as a tab.
The keyboard isn’t a physical one but an entirely flat surface which lights up as a keyboard when essential. The touch surface isn’t a screen: you can observe the outlines of the keys when it isn’t lit up, and this means you can’t alter the layout. If you need a UK keyboard, make assured you buy a Yoga Book in the UK.

Lenovo Yoga Book performance:
This screen of Lenovo Yoga Book has 16:10 aspect ratio and its resolution are 1920×1200. That’s sufficiently for this size and, being IPS, colors were decent as well as viewing angle is wide. The on-board Intel HD Graphics 400 should be sufficiently for casual games, but overlook about playing the latest 3D shooter on the Windows version at supreme resolution.
Battery life is requested to be a “not exaggerated” 15 hours, and that’s a mixture of productivity and entertainment, for example sending emails and watching Netflix. The Lenovo Yoga Book supports fast charging by its micro USB port.
Lenovo Yoga Book approaches with a fast charger that will charge the battery from vacant to 80 percent in just 50 minutes.
Coming from an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, it was tough to get used to drawing on a tab and watching your motions look on the screen above it. For creative used to a Wacom tablet, though, it will be second nature.
