Lenovo Yoga Book

 

The Yoga Book is one of the most exciting products of 2016, with a form factor never seen before in a mass-market consumer device. You can type on it, write on it and copy your physical notes into digital form. As a concept, it was a regular...

Lenovo Yoga Book review

 

Unique 2-in-1 tablet and laptop offers plenty of look-at-me functionality

Clever design ; Superb build quality ; Unique usability ; Decent battery life

Performance can be sluggish ; Screen needs more punch ; Audio lacks cohesion and dynamics

Innovative design shows promise, but performance falls short in too many key areas

Lenovo Yoga Book with Android review

 

This keyboard-toting tab is crying out for creative types to take note

Minority Report styling ; Awesome double-act keyboard and drawing pad ; Decent performance and battery life

Get ready for plenty of typos (at first) ; Multi-window isn’t perfect yet ; Few dedicated drawing apps on Android

It’s so kooky, we just can’t help loving the Yoga Book’s concept - even if it’s not perfect

Lenovo Yoga Book review: A keyless laptop from the future... that's stuck in the past

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book is the keyless laptop from the future, albeit available in the here and now. It's one of those rare products that's not just different for the sake of it, but truly innovative in its thinking, by combining a two-in-one light-up...

Outside the box thinking, Halo Keyboard isn’t the keyless gimmick you might think, multiple usage scenarios with touch panel input and included Real Pen stylus, learns as you go, thin and lightweight design

Keyboard often misses first press, slow microUSB 2.0 takes years to recharge, limited power, some will never get over Halo Keyboard’s learning curve, overly complex and convoluted for many, where to keep the Real Pen stylus (and why the physical change...

It's rare that a product could be called revolutionary in its thinking, but that's certainly an accolade that could be awarded to the Lenovo Yoga Book.

Lenovo Yoga Book review

 

Is this the netbook of the future – the ultra netbook?

Insanely thin and light ; Halo Keyboard surprisingly accurate ; Excellent display ; Clever Create Pad

Woefully underpowered ; Dated microUSB port

Lenovo has crafted a brilliant, forward-thinking device that could very well create a subcategory in computing all of its own. But, with low-power components inside holding it back against the tablet competition, it’s tough to outright recommend you...

The Yoga Book has a stylus that lets you change out a pen tip for an ink tip. This lets you capture both a digital and physical version of the notes.

The bottom line: Our quick verdict on the Lenovo Yoga Book

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book, available with either Android or Windows, is a compelling hybrid device -- at least on paper. It ditches a physical keyboard for a touch-sensitive surface that does double duty as a keyboard and digital sketchpad. With the...

Sleek, compact design ; Unique pen-and-paper integration ; Long-lasting battery

Very difficult to type on ; Some software glitches in the Android version ; Middling performance

Lenovo Yoga Book review: the unbearable lightness of computing

 

Awkward. That's the word that comes to mind when I think of all of the 2-in-1 "convertible" laptops that have come to market in recent years, as PC makers try to adapt in a mobile-centric world and...

Super thin and light ; Accessible price ; Futuristic keyboard ; Long battery life

Lack of ports (especially USB-C) ; Intel Atom processor ; Tiny design quirks ; Software needs work

Lenovo Yoga Book review

 

Right out of the gate, the Lenovo Yoga Book gets credit for offering one of the most unusual designs we've ever seen: This superportable two-in-one laptop/tablet hybrid includes a Wacom sketching pad that can instantly transform into a QWERTY keyboard....

This is a very slim, very light hybrid laptop, available in both Windows 10 and Android versions. The backlit touch keyboard vanishes at the touch of a button and the included stylus works well on both the Wacom surface and with an ink tip on actual...

The keyboard isn't suited for more than minimal typing, there's only a single Micro-USB port for accessories and charging, and the Atom processor is slower than mainstream laptops. The hefty pen, extra tips and paper pad are a lot of additional gear to...

Lenovo's slim Yoga Book two-in-one is great with a pen, but its faux keyboard keeps it from being a practical laptop.
