What I found more interesting was the launch of its new AnyPen technology which, as the name suggests, allows you to use anything you want as a pen for the Yoga tablet 2.
The tablet itself is quite light, and has the Yoga-style battery across the bottom which allows for a nice comfy hand hold for when using vertically, and holds the kickstand for when using horizontally on a flat surface.
The AnyPen function proves very good for reaching small fiddley bits of the screen, especially for example when using the desktop function on Windows 8 where the icons can get quite small on the 8inch screen.
I tested the screen out using a fork and a pen-knife, which I was worried about at first until I was informed that the screen is scratch resistant.
There is one catch though, your chosen stylus must be conductive in order to work, so anything metal works a treat.
When using applications such as word can be fun with AnyPen, and your handwriting is converted into text-based words to allow you to review them ahead of inserting them into the document to ensure they are correct.
The tablet is currently available for a price tag of around $279, and stick on an extra $20 to use the AnyPen feature.
