New Lenovo Yoga Book

Lenovo has unveiled its second-generation Yoga Book, following up on the first version in August of 2016. The concept is original: the Yoga Book opens like a book, with a touchscreen on the left-hand side (LCD IPS, 10.8 inches, 2560 x 1600) and, on the right-hand side, a touch-sensitive electronic paper display (E-Ink, 10.8 inches, 1920 x 1080). On this surface, you can jot down notes or draw with the Wacom Active Pen. Flip the machine and raise the screen to turn the electronic paper surface into an electronic keyboard with haptic visual and audio feedback: you now have a tiny portable computer that runs Windows 10. The Yoga Book is essentially a hybrid between a tablet and a portable PC. Fun feature: knock on the cover twice and it opens. Battery life is up to 8 hours. The Yoga Book C930 will ship in October for US$1,000 (or rather, US$999.99…), i.e. twice the price of the first generation.
