Lenovo deserted the “radiance” console found on the last Yoga Book and supplanted it with an E-ink chunk that changes from console to draw cushion to tablet. The E-ink console fills the whole screen when actuated, and a little, square region at the base, straightforwardly underneath the space bar, raises an E-ink trackpad when tapped. Thinking about the general size of the gadget, the trackpad is still little like it was on the old Yoga Book. Nonetheless, its collapsible nature gives whatever is left of the console more space to move around when you’re not utilizing it. Additionally, you have two information choices since you can utilize the trackpad or the Yoga Book’s touchscreen.

Lenovo Yoga Book audit: A keyless console that will make you talk, not composing

In my brief span demoing the Yoga Book, I would already be able to state I like the E-ink console superior to the old radiance console. Lenovo modified haptic and sound criticism into the board, so you’ll feel and hear each key being “squeezed.” It’s still not a gadget that I’d need to use to compose long-shape work, however it would be fine to type up messages and notes.

The Yoga Book likewise has potential as a tablet, yet two things may keep it down: size and support. The gadget’s FHD E-ink board coordinates the span of its 10.8-inch QHD touchscreen, making it considerably bigger than that of a standard tablet. It can possibly substitute such a gadget for the individuals who need to bear only a certain something, but at the same time it’s as of now hazy if applications like Amazon Kindle will bolster it.

The new Yoga Book accompanies a stylus that can stick attractively to the side of the gadget, so it’ll be harder to lose. Both the touchscreen and the E-ink show are penmanship prepared, and you can exchange notes, illustrations, and recipes drawn on the E-ink show to a few Windows 10 programs. Lenovo quickly demonstrated this off by composing a sentence on the E-ink board and exchanging it over to OneNote, where it was immediately changed over to composed content. The same should be possible for numerical conditions that incorporate numbers, images, and recipes.

The QHD touchscreen connects to the E-ink board with Lenovo’s mark watchband pivot. This setup gives you a chance to pivot the gadget into PC, tablet, and different modes. Rather than being only a plan overhaul from the first, Lenovo transformed the Yoga Book into a substantially more ground-breaking machine. It keeps running on either an Intel m3-7Y30 or Core i5-7Y54 processor, 4GB RAM, and up to 256GB capacity, and it incorporates a unique finger impression peruser and a USB-C charging port. That is a noteworthy change from 2016’s adaptation that kept running on an Intel Atom processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of capacity—making it even more a tablet than a two-in-one as far as profitability control.

In any case, every one of those redesigns bring a higher cost. The new Yoga Book C930 begins at $999, twice as much as the first gadget did when it appeared.
