You wanted to love the original Lenovo Yoga Book. It had a pretty display, and its keyboard doubled as a pad for pen input, which besides just being neat also allowed it to be one of the thinnest laptops available at .38 inches. Plus, it cost just $799). But the original Yoga Book was profoundly flawed and not a good buy for anyone beyond gadget nerds with extra cash. The new .39-inch Yoga Book C930, with a second e-ink display, is so outrageously neat that you could find yourself rooting for it despite its higher $1,999 price tag.

Lenovo's new Yoga Book draws the eye like no other tablet or laptop available today. People aren't always sure what I'm reading my comics and or jotting down notes on, but they know it's fascinating, and tiny, and cool. With its capacitive touch keyboard that turns into a drawing tablet with the press of the button, the Yoga Book is absolutely the future of laptops and tablets and the blurred space in between. But Lenovo's thinnest laptop ever also has one major problem in that it only comes in a Windows and an Android flavour. Neither OS is ready for the future Lenovo's built.

Lenovo's Yoga Book is, hands down, the most interesting and innovative gadget that I got hands-on time with at the IFA 2016 trade show in Berlin this week, at an event where everything purports to be innovative. In the same way that the original Microsoft Surface Pro revolutionised the hybrid tablet-laptop world, the Yoga Book is the next evolution of that, with a keyboard that isn't a keyboard but instead an entirely touch-sensitive panel.
