Lenovo Yoga Book is a popular choice when looking for durable 2-in-1 notebook. It is available in two options: Windows 10 or Android. Now, the company is working to launch its Yoga Book 2-in-1 with Chrome OS next year. Chrome OS is increasingly becoming the preferred choice of many users. Jeff Meredith, Vice President and General Manager of Lenovo’s Android and Chrome Computing Business Group confirmed about that in a recent interview. He said that owing to the current saturation of Chromebooks in the educational system, the company had a lot of interest in providing a Chrome OS-based solution.

Lenovo’s cool Real pen peripheral is there for drawing and taking notes on the screen. It will work in the same manner as on Android. You will be able to take notes or sketch on paper or pen that magnetically attaches to the system. The Real Pen offers 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
