Lenovo Yoga Book running Android now available to pre-order for $799

Lenovo’s introduction of the Yoga Book at IFA this year was a real eye opener for many. Lenovo is offering a sleek, stylish, powerful device with many features for a great price and now you can pre-order it in Australia for $799.

The $799 price tag includes the delivery and GST, and the unit will start heading your way in 2-3 weeks.

While it’s a lot for a 2-in-1 device, it’s got a lot of features. The 360-degree watchband hinge lets you use the device in four different modes for all manner of functions including ‘Create Mode for note taking and drawing, Browse Mode as a compact 10.1” tablet, Watch Mode for entertainment, and Type Mode as a productive laptop’.

But the biggest feature is the Halo Keyboard. The Yoga Books second panel includes a backlit keyboard with haptic feedback that disappears to allow you to enter a drawing or note taking mode, which works with the included stylus or an everyday pen if you place a sheet of paper over the panel.

Packed full of hardware, the Yoga Book is powered by an Intel Atom processor with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and microSD card slot. Lenovo is only offering a Wi-Fi model in Australia, though a 4G LTE model is available overseas.

  • 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 IPS display
  • Intel Atom Quad-Core 2.4GHz x5-Z8550
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage + microSD
  • 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 8,500mAh
  • 256.6 x 170.8 x 9.6mm @ 690g
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

Lenovo is selling the Yoga Book in Gunmetal Grey in Australia, I’ve been using this model for just over a week and to be honest it’s about the best thing since sliced bread. A full review is on its way shortly, so if you’re on the fence stay tuned for that, but if you’ve decided that this is for you, head over to the Lenovo website and check it out.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Can this handle photo editing using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop?

Give me a ChromeOS version of this thing so that updates are managed by Google, and put a better processor in it (Skylake m3 would be nice) and I’m ready to buy!
