Is It A Notebook Or A Tablet? The Lenovo Yoga Blurs The Lines

Quite a few people want a tablet. Quite a few people want a notebook. But what if you want the best of both Worlds? It seems Lenovo who makes desktop PC’s, laptops, and tablets, is merging the two together in a notebook called the Yoga.

When I first read the name, I thought it was some sort of online yoga service that they were coming out with which didn’t sound right and thankfully, they’re not. The Yoga gets it’s name because while having a touchscreen display, it also can swing a full 360 degrees.

The Lenovo Yoga is just 0.67 inches thick which, when folded into a tablet, is around double the size of many tablets out on the marketplace.

Via TechNewsWorld:

“The Ultrabook, which will run on Windows 8, can be opened and folded back on itself to be used as a tablet or e-reader with touchscreen capabilities. It can also be propped up like a tent for a better video watching experience, for example, or used as a traditional laptop.”

Being that it will run Windows 8, that means it won’t be out until the second half of the year. The new OS from Microsoft is said to work just as well on tablets as it does on desktop computers and laptops. Being that this notebook from Lenovo is a hybrid of sorts, it should (potentially) shine.
