This is the device with 'keyboard' that is really a flat Wacom-like touchpad. The keyboard lights up and has some haptic feedback I think. I was really interested in this device but reviews but me off, the keyboard not really up to the task for productivity.

This is is the android rather than the windows version.

Overall reviews are very good, although many seem to be based on free test-devices, so not sure how reliable. Keyboard might take some time to get used to (if at all).

I'm still undecided, don't need the stylus function for example... any good alternatives in this price range for 2in1s?
If you have primenow in your area, knock a further £10 down by using the code 10OFF40
​i have this notebook its beautiful i thought that browsing internet would be an issue butbits pretry smooth as far as keyboard is concerned you get used to it after few days, i have swirched the vibration and tone off ..

Nice.

Can you comment on the sound quality on films?
I bought this (and posted a deal) last time the Android one was around this price. After 3 moths+ of using it as my principle tablet it's "OK". I use the keyboard but not the stylus much. Having 4GB RAM does make it quite good at coping with almost anything.

It's still a lot of money for a tablet, but it's more reasonable than the normal price, which is far too high.

Also note that the note taking app on *Android* does not do OCR even though Lenovo demoed it doing that at launch. The Windows one does. But even with this is £90 more.

​i bought the windows model its quite fast, never used the pen feature for drawing though.
i dont like the bit where you have to open it when its folded not very smooth.
how long does the battery last on Android on windows its 9 to 10 hours

positively or negatively?
We have the windows model at home. As above, we turned off the sounds for the keyboard, but it does work surprisingly well once you acclimatise to the lack of physical keys, so you end up looking at it more.
Physically, it's an amazing piece of kit. So thin, rigid. Good battery life, poor charging speed, but it does use Micro USB, so you can charge it anywhere.
Got to applaud Lenovo for trying something different but given the level and quality of customer support it's a big risk at this cost. I think I would have to get the Windows one as Android is good in its own right but never been great for productivity.

I didn't even know Amazon had it around this price, by the time I was looking into buying it, the only ones selling on Amazon were third parties. For those looking now, Argos have them (grey & gold models), Curry's may have some in local stores and JohnLewis, all at £350.

Arguably the best deal would be via JohnLewis with 2 year guarantee included, but only the gold model is available to buy via website (grey is out of stock, and my local didn't have any).
However I phoned today, and spoke with a very helpful girl, through her I was able to buy a grey one from another store and get home delivery via courier "within 5 working days". I'm not really a clumsy person, but for a £350 tablet I thought the extra £35 2yr accidental cover was worth getting.

It's back in stock at Amazon. I actually ordered it directly from Lenovo last weekend for 349, TCB had a promotion with 10% cashback. And I had the option to add the sleeve for just £1 extra, now waiting for delivery.
Shame you didn't post that deal as I would have gone for that. Been looking for a decent price drop on this with a sleeve for a while. Lenovo has put their prices back up again after the holiday weekend.

It is still £350 at Argos (31st May, 11pm), but not sure for how much longer.
If that deal is gone by the time you see this message, I noticed that the Yoga Tab 3 Plus is back down to £250.

____________

EDIT: As expected, Argos put the price up the following day, to £480. Hope that those who wanted the Yoga Book got their orders in.

By the way, if you find that the colours look washed out while watching videos, enable developer's options, and then tick "Disable HW overlays". It might be fixed with an update, I updated once and it was still there. Another update around 700MB appeared, but I didn't want to go from having a fix to nothing. It made 2.35:1 videos basically unwatchable, you had black bars on the 16:10 screen, then grey bars then the image. Was only there during videos, take a screenshot and it looked fine.
