    I am really like the direction that Lenovo is taking with this device. Very cool form-factor, you get laptop, tablet and ebook reader in one device!

    This honestly is an ingenious design. I’ve always preferred reading on e-ink.

    If they improved and innovated it this much already within 1 year, imagine the 5th Gen of the Yoga Book.. hopefully they keep the same engineers and vision :)

    If Apple made this, it would cost 2000$ and outsell every laptop out there. Gorgeous! Excellent design.

    999 seems fairly priced in my eyes for such a neatly engineered piece.. the futures definitely looking good with this one

    The coolest thing ever would be if you could use windows while the bottom display is in ereader-mode
    I don't know how practical it would be since you're missing the keyboard, but doing Uni-stuff while having the textbook on the bottom display would look super cool!
    or you could play hearthstone in the lecture and not even have to alt-tab to look at the lecture slides!

    Few years from now, Apple will have this keyboard with a little improvement, hefty price and call it THE GREATEST INNOVATION 😂
