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.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: Innovation yes, but is it for you?

 

Lenovo Yoga Book is pegged as a game-changing laptop, and hybrid that comes with innovative new features.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review

 

The Yoga Book is the one to buy if you want something “cool”, but overall, it's not a device that will replace a regular laptop.

Well Built ; Nice display ; Good battery life

Slow processor ; Keyboard / touchpad implementation is not perfect ; microUSB port only

The Lenovo Yoga Book is an interesting concept, but there are kinks to be worked out. The Yoga Book is more like a proof of concept right now, and not the best laptop you can buy for the price.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: a new type of hybrid

 

In our preview of the Yoga Book, we wondered if Lenovo had reinvented the hybrid tablet with its impossibly slim design and unique keyboard that can double as a virtual piece of paper. Now, having given it a more extended evaluation, we have some good...

None of this is to take away from what Lenovo has achieved with the Yoga Book. It’s a striking piece of hardware, with a great screen and beautiful, super-slim chassis. However, it’s not for everyone.

Lenovo Yoga Book review: The weirdest laptop of 2016

 

Gloriously slim and lightweight, but the Lenovo Yoga Book's touch panel keyboard and lack of power undermine its appeal

Test : Lenovo Yoga Book

 

Pouvoir écrire rapidement et efficacement sur un smartphone ou une tablette est le rêve de nombreuses équipes de recherche et développement et de design depuis de nombreuses années, et Lenovo pourrait avoir trouvé la solution à cette énigme avec son...

Avec le Yoga Book, vous avez un appareil extrêmement fin de la même forme qu’une tablette, avec un clavier intégré très confortable connecté par de bons vieux fils. Pousser les limites du design pour que la praticité et la productivité en profitent, on...

Lenovo Yoga Book im Test

 

Das schlanke Lenovo Yoga Book hat zwei Touchscreens und kommt wahlweise mit Android oder Windows. Eignet sich das Convertible eher als Tablet oder doch als vollwertiges Notebook? Das zeigt der Test.

ultraschlankes, leichtes Convertible, schnelles Umschalten zwischen virtueller Tastatur und Zeichenblatt, verfügbar mit Android oder Windows, überragende Akkulaufzeit, sehr helles Display, lautloser Betrieb

schwache System- und Grafikleistung, nur ein USB-2.0-Anschluss zum Laden und Verbinden, kleiner SSD-Speicher (Windows)

Lenovo Yoga Book

 

Le Yoga Book est un hybride 2 en 1 qui s'avère excellent avec un stylet. Mais son clavier l'empêche d'être un pc portable réellement pratique.

La finesse, le poids, disponible sous Windows ou Android, le stylet qui fonctionne aussi bien sur l’ardoise Wacom que sur du papier avec sa mine à encre, le clavier sensitif rétroéclairé qui s’efface d’une simple touche

Le clavier ne convient que pour un usage minimaliste, un seul port microUSB pour la connectique et la charge, le processeur Atom, le stylet, les mines et le bloc note magnétique qu’il faut transporter en plus

En ce qui concerne l’autonomie, le processeur basse puissance est un atout, de même que la résolution d’écran proche du full HD. Lors de notre test d’endurance (lecture vidéo en boucle), la version Windows a tenu 8 heures tandis que la version Android...

Great New Tablet / Laptop Experence

 

Just got the Android version of the Yoga book and I have to say it is one very well put together tablet. My prior experience with android tablets includes an Amazon one and the first Samsung Note 10.01. The Yoga book took a great tablet and added a new...

Consumer review by: TheseShiftyControls (cnet.com)

You are probably better off just buying a iPad or a Chromebook

 

The Lenovo Yoga Book provides a cool look and feel at first but once you use it for extended periods of time it becomes very old very fast. I did experience some lag from the typing when multiple tabs were open. The Yoga Book does handle the Windows 10...

The paper gimmick is cool but a hassle to carry around...

Typing for more than 10 minutes starts to hurt your fingers and the keyboard is not responsive enough for people used to a mechanical keyboard...
