PROD­UCT OF THE YEAR

The Len­ovo Yoga Book is one of those prod­ucts that when you first open it there is a lot of mys­tic and ex­pec­ta­tion.

SmartHouse - - PRODUCT -

A note­book that runs both An­droid and Win­dows (sep­a­rate units of course). A screen you can write on with a pen. A Halo Key­board, a touch-sen­si­tive sur­face with hap­tic feed­back that can be used for draw­ing on as well as typ­ing.

What re­ally got me was when I put a writ­ing pad over the key­board and what I wrote through 60 pages of paper ap­peared on the screen.

Ul­tra-thin (and ul­tra-light), this 10.1 inch mag­ne­sium-alu­min¬ium al­loy de­vice is se­ri­ously out there when it comes to in­no­va­tion. The screen is su­per bright and the bat­tery out­per­forms both my iPad and Sam­sung Galaxy S2 tablet by a long way. Re­cently I got 15 hours out of the de­vice on a flight to New York.

The Yoga Book’s black slate lights up with a Qw­erty key­board, al­low­ing you to type away as nor­mal. De­ac­ti­vate it, and the black slate be­comes a Wa­com­like sur­face, which you can write or draw on with an in­cluded sty­lus.

This is one se­ri­ously must have prod­uct.
