Lenovo has created one of the most distinctive 2in1 devices with Windows. Stuff magazine has tested how Yoga Book works on the journey.
Do not be fooled, it is hard to create a portable computer that would significantly differentiate its design from the competition. Even tablets that have revolutionized the mobile market are increasingly resembling classic laptops. Yes, you can work on them using only the touch screen, but neither pleasant nor comfortable. Lenovo engineers are aware of the fact that we do not invest in tablets to convert them into notebooks and lose mobility, so they have designed a 2in1 device that breaks the existing schema. The Lenovo Yoga Book is an innovative device that will adapt to your preferences: it will be used as a tablet, a computer, and even a handy drawing tool. How it's possible?Yoga Book can boast of two solutions that will not confuse us with any other equipment. You will immediately notice the elegant 360 ° hinge that allows you to rotate the screen to any angle, but it is not the most interesting part of the device. Where we would expect to see a physical keyboard, we will find a touch pad that can display keys or serve as a great graphics tablet. One must admit that no competitor has opted for such a bold step and has not redefined the concept of tablet in the way they did it with the Lenovo spece. The Yoga Book on the one hand is a very innovative device and, on the other, a bold experiment. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nA3k5LfQ9A To find out if this 2in1 device will work in your day-to-day work, we decided to take the Lenovo Yoga Book on the road and see how far it can go from a comfortable desk and source. power.
For the first few hours we thought someone had cheated us and sent a cardboard box in the shape of a Yoga Book. This equipment is incredibly light! How did you manage to fit all these components into something that weighs only 690 grams ? Undoubtedly, this is one of the most compact devices we have ever encountered.
We are impressed with how beautiful and functional the 360 ° hinge is. In a fraction of a second, you can turn your laptop, tablet or digital sketchbook into a travel case. Instead of packing a few electronic devices and a paper sketchbook, we can bring one piece of equipment from Lenovo. In addition, the bracelet's hinge design makes the Yoga Book more like jewelry than a computer. Lovers of good style will be satisfied.
It's been a week since we tested the Yoga Book, and one thing we can say with absolute determination – there is no competitor with such a keyboard. Designers showed great courage by deciding to remove the physical keyboard and replace it with a giant trackpad which extends over the entire width of the lower cover of the device. To work with keys displayed on a flat touch surface you need to get used to, writing on the Yoga Book closer to using the tablet than from the physical keyboard. At last, the buttons do not feel under your fingers, though they vibrate when you push them. This solution has tremendous advantages – giving up the physical keys has made it possible to slim the device, and text input is almost silent. Moreover, the "keyboard" functions do not end in writing.
Let's just say this – in Stuff editor only graphic designers know what pencil is for, but even the greatest artistic beztalencia will appreciate using the tablet as a sketchpad or notebook. The stylus smoothly glides over the touch panel on which the keyboard was previously displayed and the handwriting is precisely processed into the digital display. You get the impression that you are using a classic graphical tablet .
The entire previous week Yoga Book has been with us on the go and one is sure – it's the perfect partner for the people who are always on the go . A fully charged battery will allow you to work for over a dozen or so long hours, and if you like to enjoy your movie or music office routine, you can work on it all day long. And you know what? The battery life is enough for 2 or 3 overtime.
When we look at the specs, the first thing that comes to mind is the Full HD touch screen , which can be a classic tablet when assembled. Our Yoga Book has been running on Windows 10, but there is also an Android-based model that will work in the hands of mobile app enthusiasts. The rest of the components correspond to standard tablets. The device is powered by the Intel Atom x5 with 4 GB of RAM and an Intel HD Graphics 400 graphics card. It is a versatile travel companion that will work well for business meetings, business meetings, and after-hours entertainment.
Yoga Book is not only a specification and components, it is a wide range of possibilities. Thanks to its versatility it is one of the most versatile mobile devices on the market. Lenovo took a courageous step by designing a full-fledged Windows tablet , a 360 ° hinge, and a hybrid keyboard – and in our eyes, this experiment ran successfully. Laptop for office work, sketchbook, media player or tablet – you decide what Yoga Book will be at the moment. And it's worth paying for this feature. 399 zł / lenovo.com
