At first glance, the Lenovo Yoga A12 certainly looks like it’d be an expensive piece of kit. It’s all thin and svelte and flashy. But there are at least a couple of things that will immediately surprise you about this new 12.2-inch tablet. First, it’s only $299. Second, it’s powered by Android. Perhaps the latter explains the former.

While it may have once been the case that you had to choose between having a laptop or a tablet, the lines between the two product categories are certainly blurring. We’re seeing a great number of 2-in-1 Windows machines with screens that flip around, as well as tablets like the iPad Pro that aim to provide a higher level of productive functionality. The Lenovo Yoga A12 fits squarely in this in-between world too.

Largely based on the Yoga Book, which is almost double the price, the Yoga A12 is a cheaper alternative that loses pen input and the option to run Windows 10, but you get a machine that’s only 0.21-inches thick at its thinnest point. And just like all these other convertibles these days, it’ll also function in a variety of flexible “modes” depending on what you want to do.

Part of this is enabled via the touch-sensitive keyboard. There are no physical keys, so it may take a little getting used to, but it also means that your keyboard doesn’t have to hog up precious on-screen space. And it just looks freakin’ gorgeous too.

While it might feel a little odd that Lenovo opted for Android instead of Chrome OS, maybe some people just prefer Android, even on a much larger 12.2-inch screen. The rest of the specs include a 13-hour battery, an Atom x5 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Look for the $299 Yoga A12 to ship starting this Wednesday.
