Lenovo Yoga Book – FHD 10.1″ Windows Tablet – 2 in 1 Tablet

, , 12 Comments


Lenovo Yoga Book Review. The stylish hinge not only looks great, but
it allows the device to lie completely flat as well as smoothly transition between a variation
of uses, such as tablet, laptop and tent. Opening the Yoga Book reveals the black panel
that will serve as your writing and typing space. Touching the warm surface with my hand caused
the touch-capacitive keyboard to glow. You’ll find a 2-MP camera in the traditional
location at the center of the top thick black bezel encasing the 10.1-inch display. It slipped into my backpack with minimal effort
and would slide into a medium-size purse just as easily. Lenovo managed to squeeze a micro USB, micro
HDMI and microSD card slot on the Yoga Book’s left. Buttons for power and volume are positioned
on the right with a combination headphone and microphone jack. The Yoga Book’s touch display is colorful
and bright, but the hues could be more accurate. The Yoga Book’s panel reproduced good percent
of the sRGB gamut, which is excellent. For such a slim chassis, the Yoga Book gets
surprisingly loud. The Dolby Audio software definitely made for
a better listening experience. Dynamic delivered the best audio overall. The keyboard isn’t a total disaster. When I did manage to strike the right key,
I appreciated the strong haptic feedback. It makes up for the lack of key travel and
actuation usually found on a regular keyboard. I also appreciate the ability to perform Windows
shortcuts The 2.6 into 1.3-inch touchpad is a bit small
for my tastes. There were way too many times when I inadvertently
moved my finger onto the spacebar, which yielded some haptic goodness. The two side margins performed their right
and left mouse button duties well. The typing experience on the Yoga Book isn’t
the best, but the writing is like a well-oiled machine. When the time comes to put actual pen to paper,
Lenovo has you covered with the Book Pad. In practice, writing on the Book Pad is just
like writing in a higher quality notebook. The paper is nice and thick, and the ink from
the mini-ballpoint tip produced smooth, consistent lines. I did most of my writing in the mobile OneNote
app, since it automatically launches when pen mode is activated. Sticky Notes is like a digital Post-it note
that comes in handy for reminders. Sketchpad is for people more artistically
inclined than myself, offering basic drawing tools to make an impromptu masterpiece. I did manage to make a passable sketch of
a sunset over water. The Yoga Book’s 2.4-GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8550
processor with 4GB of RAM isn’t going to set the world on fire. It will, however, allow you to take some notes,
watch a movie or draw a sketch or two. When we ran our battery test, which consists
of continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi, the hybrid tapped out after 9 hours and 35 minutes. Still, that was more than enough to top the
8-hour ultraportable category average. No matter what we threw at it, the Yoga Book
remained cool under pressing. In case you feel like snapping a photo or
video, the Yoga Book has you doubly covered with its 2-megapixel and 8-MP cameras located
on the front and rear of the device. Both cameras offer HDR mode, so your images
will deliver rich color and sharp contrast in tricky lighting. The rear camera did a fairly good job on detail,
as I could see the overhead lights glistening off my colleague’s hair. The Lenovo Yoga Book is an insanely thin convertible
that combines a laptop, digital sketchpad and notebook. Kindly see the description for this Amazon
