Too Cool For Physical Keyboards: The Lenovo Yoga Book

Updated on September 2, 2016

The Apple iPad and Microsoft Surface could be surpassed by Lenovo's Yoga Book - a tablet laptop that has a touchscreen keyboard instead of a physical keyboard.

Unlike the Surface, the Yoga Book's touchscreens are non-detachable and is, therefore, heavier.

At first, it seems odd for the laptop to have no physical keyboard. But from Lenovo's standpoint, it seems amazingly innovative. Lenovo designed the Yoga Book for those who like touchscreen keyboards, mobile apps, write digital notes, create digital artworks, and minimal typing.

The Yoga Book is pretty flexible. It can be positioned either in laptop mode, laid flat for side-by-side drawing and writing, bent over into tent mode, or folded back-to-back for tablet mode.

Using the Lenovo touch pen (Real Pen) that comes with the Yoga Book, users can write directly on the lower touchscreen and have their writings automatically recorded in the pre-installed Note Saver app.

Users can also record their writings by placing a piece of paper on the lower touchscreen, and writing directly on that paper with the Real Pen.

The lower touchscreen and pen's 2,048 levels of pressure allow users to record writings either with smooth and soft strokes like brushes, or with strongly defined lines like human handwritings.

Notes cannot be recorded onto the computer unless users use the Real Pen since it's designed with Wacom's "feel IT" tech that responds to the electromagnetic resonance (EMR) film built into the keyboard.

The Halo Keyboard features generously sized and spaced keys, implemented haptic feedback, predictive text, autocorrect, and a button that allows users to switch between keyboard mode and writing mode.

The upper touchscreen is rough to the touch instead of glossy smooth like the lower touchscreen because it helps prevent fast-typing fingers from sliding on contact.

The laptop will be available in two different operating systems: Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Windows 10.

Both models have a 8,500 mAh Li-Pol battery; Dolby Atmos speakers; and a 10.1-inch, 1,920 x 1,200 pixel resolution IPS top screen. They also weigh approximately 1.5 pounds (680 grams).

The Android model is good for up to 15 hours of use per charge while the Windows model is good for up to 13 hours of use per charge.

The Android Marshmallow version is priced as $499 USD while the Windows 10 version is priced at $599 USD. Both are expected to be available online in the US by the end of October.
