Hand-held, use-anywhere slate tablets

They offer up to 13” QHD+ displays, and they’re “2-in-1 detachable,” with an ultra-thin keyboard you can remove when you just need the touch screen.
Convertible 2-in-1 laptop/tablets
How’d you like a tablet that you can sit on your lap or hang on the wall for group viewing, or one that can flip back and forth between tablet and keyboard-equipped laptop? The Yoga Tablet lets you hold, tilt, stand, or hang the device as needed. Or there’s the Yoga Book, a “2-in-1 convertible" that you can use as either touch screen tablet to traditional laptop.
NEW: Combination smart screen/tablet
Wouldn’t it be great if your tablet could still help you even when it’s sitting across the room? Our new Lenovo Smart Tab is one part Android tablet and one part smart home hub – in other words, a “smart tablet.” Use it as you would any tablet, or put it in the included Lenovo Smart Dock to activate Show Mode (the visual form of Amazon Alexa) to order groceries, check your security cameras, etc.
