The idea the company is giving up the usual keyboard with mechanical buttons, which allow users to customize the touch panel and place it blocks with buttons, for example the numeric keypad.
Until Apple reactions opportunities launch of the MacBook without keyboard, China's Lenovo rushed to present a device of this type. At IFA 2016 the company has shown a laptop with a thin shell and two touchscreens, one of which is designed for the output image, and one for the entry of information.

And not only special pen: the authors suggest that users will put the touch on the left part of the sheets of paper, draw something on them with a pencil, and his movements will read the sensor.
With the help of the provision of the pen can not only make sketches and drawings, but also introduce handwriting. If writing with pen on paper, placed on the touch surface of the Yoga Book, the device will automatically recognize your handwriting into text, save it in memory. Such is the "road копирка".
