This ultra thin hybrid device is priced Rs. 49,990 and will be available exclusively on Flipkart in carbon black color. This notebook has thickness of 9.6mm and its weight is just 690 grams.
The major highlights of this notebook is its Halo keyboard and Real Pen input for writing and sketching on the Yoga Book.
The halo keyboard, a full touch screen backlit keyboard that is made with glass to give a rough, matte feel and finish, along with anti-glare coating to ensure the best possible touch-typing experience. The keyboard lacks any physical keys, showing up as a solid white outline on the Yoga Book’s second panel only when it is needed. The halo keyboard constantly ‘learns about and adapts to’ the typing habits of its user, with built-in prediction and artificial learning software. It comes withf haptic technology, which enables touch feedback to guide typing and reduce mistakes. According to Lenovo, the halo keyboard far surpasses the typing experience and speed of a normal tablet, and is comparable with that of a physical keyboard.
With the real-pen accessory that comes with this notebook, the users can write or sketch onto a piece of paper which can be fixed magnetically on the device or notepad covering the multi-use keyboard panel.
