Engadget Review

The Lenovo Yoga Book, available with either Android or Windows, is a compelling hybrid device -- at least on paper. It ditches a physical keyboard for a touch-sensitive surface that does double duty as a keyboard and digital sketchpad. With the included stylus, you can draw on the deck, even when the tablet is asleep, and your notes will still be saved. You can even write on real paper and convert your scribblings to digital. Still, none of these writing features make up for the terrible typing experience. Although it scores points for novelty, the Yoga Book is too unreliable to be a true productivity machine.
