The Lenovo Yoga 700 series is one of the best computers I know of. It has touch screen capabilities as well as a stylus that inserts into the side of the laptop. The Yoga feature allows the computer to flip around like this photo, and even flip all the way flat to serve as a tablet. When the computer flips, the keys on the other side of the screen retract, allowing you to safety and conveniently place the computer flat. The battery life is comparable to other computers of the same size. This computer is great for students because you can turn the computer into a tablet at any time to mark up pdf documents with the stylus. It is also amazing for design classes like this one since you can use the regular laptop feature or the tablet one, and the software realizes that the computer is turned around and will change the screen to that of a tablet. It is also not as heavy as what one would imagine!
