Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga

Lenovo unveiled a new revolving Windows 10 laptop yesterday called Lenovo ThinkPad P40 Yoga.

The company even went as far as calling it the world's first multimode mobile workstation. But it looks like Lenovo will market this device towards people who sketch and design a lot on a screen.

It will be launched from $1399 and upwards, sometime in Q1 2016 says Lenovo.

The technology underneath begins with a 14-inch touchscreen display with Wacom Active ES technology with 2048 pressure point levels on a 2560 x 1440 resolution display. Another important part is the ThinkPad Pen Pro that Lenovo developed with Wacom, a digitizer system they say is developed with the intention of making drawing feel more natural on screen. So that will be fun to try out.

The top model will have good specs, with elements like Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB RAM, up to 512GB storage, a Nvidia Quadro M500M GPU with 2GB VRAM.

Lenovo has also given the ThinkPad P40 Yoga something the call a “Lift ‘n Lock” keyboard that pops up a frame around the keyboard if the screen is turned all the way around or if the keys are placed upside down with the screen facing upwards. And as we can see, it is unmistakably a Lenovo ThinkPad.

For those who don't need the design tools of the P40 Yoga, the Lenovo Yoga 4 Pro is probably a more satisfying choice. It even costs $200 less, even though it has a higher resolution display.

The 13.5-inch Surface Book is another option, and it's very close to the P40 Yoga, only that it has higher specs, and can turn into a tablet.
