The Lenovo Yoga Book Goes On Pre-Order In The U.S.

The largest PC manufacturer in the world, Lenovo, unveiled its Yoga Book convertible PC earlier this month at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany. The device went on pre-order in the U.K. just last week at prices ranging from £429.99 ($560) for the Android version to £509.99 ($664) for the Windows 10 model. Now the Chinese tech company has started accepting pre-orders for the 2-in-1 convertible over in the U.S. as well. While the device has been listed on Lenovo’s official U.S. website at $499.99 for the Android version in Gunmetal Grey, Carbon Black and Champagne Gold, the Windows 10 variant comes with a $50 premium for what seems to be essentially the same hardware. Still, a price-tag of $549.99 doesn't seem half bad for a device that's fairly unique at this point in time. Lenovo says it will start shipping the devices from the 17th of October.

The Lenovo Yoga Book is the latest in a growing list of devices that come with the convertible form-factor which allows users to either use it as a regular laptop or as a tablet PC. The device features a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. It also comes with Capacitive Touch and AnyPen Technology. Instead of the standard physical keyboard, the Lenovo Yoga Book comes with a ‘Create Pad’, which happens to be a glass surface that can either be used as a regular keypad with an illuminated ‘Halo’ keyboard, or as a touch panel to take notes with the bundled ‘Real Pen’.

As for the internal hardware of the brand new offering from Lenovo, it is powered by a 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processor and comes with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM along with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded by way of a microSD card of up to 128GB in capacity. The device supports dual-channel Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac connectivity as well as Bluetooth v4.0 and carries a 2-cell 8,500mAh Lithium-Polymer battery. The Lenovo Yoga Book also comes with a G-Sensor, an ambient light sensor and a hall sensor. On the software side of things, the device will be available with two different operating systems as mentioned already. There's a Windows version that will ship with Windows 10 Home, while the Android version will have Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.
