With unique keypad features.
The world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1 laptop tablet has arrived on Australian shores from Lenovo. The company presented its latest device, the Yoga Book, in Sydney’s CBD on Thursday to a group of media and bloggers.
Speaking to Appliance Retailer about the laptop tablet was Lenovo ANZ consumer director, Brendan Lau. As the world’s thinnest and lightest 2-in-1, when fully closed, it is 9.6mm thin, made of aluminium and magnesium, and weighs in at just 690 grams. “To put that into context, that is the average weight of a tablet without a keyboard,” he said.
The Yoga Book has a 10 inch display and signature watch band hinge, which allows for 360 degree movement from laptop to tablet. It also offers up to 15 hours on full charge.
The key feature of the device is its on-demand halo keyboard – the thinnest and smartest software-optimised keyboard. “Thanks to haptic feedback, when you type, it will buzz back, recognising your touch. It also has artificial learning to pick up on your typing style – for example, whether or not you’re hitting the keys dead centre,” Lau explained.
Another unique feature is the create pad. “The device includes a digitiser, which has real ink options and it comes with three ink refills. You can draw to the digitiser on the pad and it will digitise your sketches or writing onto the screen. The pen comes with 2,048 pressure levels, which is double what’s currently on the market,” Lau said.
The Yoga Book is available in both Android (RRP $799) and Windows (RRP $999) operating systems and was launched into JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks and The Good Guys stores this week.
