The Lenovo Yoga Book is unlike any other two-in-one Android tablet that we have ever seen. It comes with a capacitive keyboard, a stylus and deadly note taking functionality. One of the most compelling aspects about this device is that you can remove the nib from the stylus and put in one of the ink pens. You can then magnetically attach the notepad to the keyboard and whatever you draw on the pad will automatically project on the screen. This is a great way to draw, make notes, sign documents or just freestyle with the accompanied Art Rage app.
The Yoga Book features a 10.1 IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1200. It has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal memory and a MicroSD to support up to 128GB. It is running on a Intel Atom x5-Z8550 2.4 GHZ quad-core processor.
The sound quality is really good on this device because it has Dolby Atmos technology. When you pump the speakers to the max, it really lights up an entire room with crystal clear sound. I was also very impressed with the IPS screen for video quality.
Lenovo is taking big risks with the Yoga Book. It has basically ditched the physical keyboard for a touch-sensitive surface that does double duty as a keyboard and digital sketchpad. You cannot remove the tablet from the keyboard because it is hinged, so it is not a true two-in-one. It is also running Android 6.01, whereas most of the other big name companies are all using Windows 10. Still, this device only costs $499, so you will not be breaking the bank to buy one.
