Computex 2018: Lenovo hit back at Project Precog with 2nd-gen Yoga Book

Hours after ASUS debuted its dual-screened concept device Project Precog, Lenovo's Jeff Meredith took the stage at Intel's Computex Keynote to show off a preview for a new 'AI-ready Generation 2 Yoga Book'.

The original Yoga Book was released in late 2016 to somewhat mixed-reception after a popular debut at IFA some months earlier. It features an ultra-slimform factor a unique design that eschewed a physical keyboard for a 'Halo' touchscreen surface.

Giving consumers a sneak peek of the 2nd-gen Yoga Book at this year's Intel Computex keynote, it was revealed that the new 2-in-1 will ditch the first-gen's halo keyboard for a dual-screen configuration that sounds very similar to ASUS' newly-revealed Project Precog.

Like Precog, Lenovo say that the new Yoga Book will feature an AI-driven keyboard and an "enhanced inking experience."

However, unlike the Precog, there's no word (at least, yet) on any sort of more granular AI integration that ASUS talked up during the reveal of their latest concept product.

Lenovo doesn't really have a major presence at this year's Computex, so expect more information on the new Yoga Book to drop later in the year.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
