Malaysia (28 August 2017) — Lenovo, the world’s leading PC manufacturer, hosted a Lenovo Yoga Book Hands-on Workshop with KL SketchNation last Saturday, 26 August. KL SketchNation, founded by Ahmad Hakym Ahmad Hilmy, is an urban artist community that inspires people through the art of sketching.

During the workshop, the attendees experienced the full sketching capabilities that the Lenovo Yoga Book can offer. In particular, they were eager very impressed with the Real Pen, a dual-use stylus that can write on both paper and the tablet, which offers the precision and control one would expect from a traditional pen on paper. Adrian Lesmono, Tablet and Smart Devices Lead, Lenovo Central Asia Pacific, talked about how Yoga Book, being the ultimate on-the-go creativity tablet, enables users to write, draw and unleash their imagination with cutting-edge features, while Ahmad Hakym Ahmad Hilmy, an avid user of Yoga Book, shared the benefits of the device and how it helps him unleash his creative potential.


The experiential session saw the art enthusiasts flaunt their talent with the Yoga Book by sketching the interior of the café as well as its surrounding; though some artists preferred to take a different route and create caricatures of their fellow friends instead. The attendees were impressed with the seamless digitization offered by Yoga Book, which enables them to keep their ideas and inspirations in the most original and natural way.

“Lenovo is pleased to have hosted the Yoga Book hands-on workshop with KL SketchNation. It is exciting to see the various artists in the group bringing their art to life with the Yoga Book,” said Khoo Hung Chuan, General Manager of Lenovo Malaysia and Singapore. “Lenovo has always been supportive to the local community through our customer-centric products. We intend to continue bringing our customers state of the art technology and innovation.”
