Lenovo Yoga A12 is a more affordable version of the Yoga Book


Lenovo has introduced a budget version of its elite Yoga Book tablet PC which was announced last year. The Lenovo Yoga A12, as it is called, comes as in an ultra-slim laptop/tablet that runs in an Android operating system.

The Lenovo Yoga A12 packs a similar touch-based, back-lit Halo keyboard as the Yoga Book and it allows for touch-based interaction but without the unique pen which the Yoga Book features. The touchscreen display allows for interaction just like on a smartphone.

On the specs table, it features a 12.2-inch display with a resolution of 1200 x 800 pixels and is fired up by an Intel Atom x5 (Cherry Trail) processor which is backed by 2GB of RAM. There is also 32GB of storage onboard, which is kinda lackluster.

Also, the device comes with a 360-degree hinge which allows users to convert the A12 to a tablet.
