The Moto M comes at a price of Rs. 15,999 and the Yoga book has been launched at a price of Rs. 49,990.

“Today, consumers no longer separate their activities into productivity and entertainment and Lenovo believes devices should adapt to the evolving usage trends to blend everything together,” said Bhaskar Choudhuri, Director-Marketing, Lenovo India.

  • The device comes with a 5.5″ full-HD display and will be available for sale from December 14, 11:59pm on Flipakart.

  • The laptop is ultra-thin at just 9.6mm and weights 690 g. It comes with QuickCharge technology which helps charge your device quicker and the 13-hour battery life is a great addition to the package.
  • You can digitise your notes and sketches using the real-pen accessory supplied with the device.

You can buy the Yoga Book on Flipkart from December 13.

Our First Impression of the Yoga Book

The device was launched in an event in New Delhi on December 13, 2016 and we managed to get our hands on it — here is what we think.

The keyboard interface’s haptic feedback is a little bit too sensitive as the feedback creates a buzz which can tend to get a little disturbing in the long run. The touchpad could’ve used a bit more space too — looks a bit small for convenience of use.

The pen might be useful for people working in the creative field, but for usual office goers, it isn’t going to be of much utility, though the sleek design, light weight and great battery life of the device is ideal those who commute daily while carrying their laptop.

All in all, the laptop is a win-win for the pricing, especially for those creative heads who’re inclined to doodle in and out of work.
