5 things I love about the Lenovo Yoga Book

The Lenovo Yoga Book has been getting a lot of attention lately, thanks to its incredibly futuristic and cool looking Halo Keyboard that replaces a physical keyboard with a touch-based Wacom board. With our full Yoga Book review already live, I thought it'd be a good idea to narrow that down to a list of 5 things I love about the Yoga Book.

Five things I love about the Lenovo Yoga Book

1. Excellent and premium design

The Lenovo Yoga book is a marvel in design. Rocking a mix of magnesium and aluminum, the Yoga Book just feels great in the hand. It's super light, too, so there's no worry about becoming tired or worn out when holding and carrying the device. I'm a sucker when it comes to metal devices, and the Yoga Book just screams premium when holding it — looking at it, even. I'd say this is the most premium-feeling 2-in-1 that I've ever held. Fantastic.

2. It's so thin!

This is the thinnest 2-in-1 tablet in the world.

Piggy backing off the design of the Yoga Book, I must stress how incredibly thin this device is. It's probably the biggest reason I was interested in the Yoga Book in the first place. At a miniscule 9.6mm, this is the thinnest 2-in-1 in the world. That's impressive, but when you consider the fact that Lenovo still incorporates a headphone jack, microSD slot, MiniHDMI port and two Dolby-enhanced speakers, it makes you wonder how they managed to fit it all in.

3. Android or Windows?

I like choices, and with the Yoga Book, Lenovo offers you just that. You can get a Yoga Book running Android, or our preferred option of Windows 10 — in Champagne Gold, Gunmetal Grey or Carbon Black. Not only that, but there's the additional option of having a SIM slot too for data on the go, making the Yoga Book an excellent choice when it comes to travelling.

4. Pen-tastic!

One of the selling points of the Yoga Book is its super cool Halo Keyboard and Create Pad. All Yoga Book's come with a Wacom-pen in the box, with additional pen ink heads for writing on actual paper. You can draw directly into the Create Pad, or use the pen to manipulate the screen, too. It's almost like having two screens, which is great!

5. The watchband hinge

The Yoga Book is a 2-in-1, so it only makes sense for Lenovo to have bridged the two halves with their fantastic, patented watchband hinge. The hinge on the Yoga Book is the best on the market for a 2-in-1, allowing for full 360 degree rotation in one swoop, rather than having to detach the screen, spin it around, and reattach like on a Surface Book

The Lenovo Yoga Book is one of the best 2-in-1 tablets on the market. With the choice of Android or Windows, this is a device that can fit everyone's needs. It's thin, light, and sexy too, and you'll likely get noticed when using it out and about with that futuristic Halo Keyboard lighting up the bottom half of the device.
