One of the most significant feature of the Yoga Book is its innovative touch-sensitive keyboard that can also be used as a drawing slate or note pad.

The Yoga Book’s 10-inch display can be folded 360 degree via Lenovo’s hinge that we can see on the Lenovo Yoga 900 and recently announced Yoga 910 laptops. So you can transform the Yoga Book into tablet, laptop or a drawing pad with an ease. Also, to use this display, the Yoga Book comes with a stylus which is actually a pen with real ink.
Now, the slate of the Yoga Book has a capacitive touch panel with EMR Pen Technology and can be used as a drawing pad in Pen mode and a capacitive keyboard when you need to type on it.

Typing on Yoga Book will give you the feeling as if you are typing on a smartphone or tablet screen.
If you need to use the slate for drawing, then you just need to tap a button. You just need to sketch on the slate and can see the creations on the display. To be better, Lenovo includes a magnetic pad of paper that attaches to the slate and you can use the slate just like a real note book. The stylus comes with ink cartridges that are easy to find at any office supply store, and you can use any paper you like. If you attach the paper pad to the slate, you’ll have both a digital and an analog copy of your notes.

But it is said that the Windows version of the Yoga Book will cost you more than the Android Version. Every Yoga Book comes with the Pen, three ink cartridges and a note book that attaches to the slate magnetically.
