Lenovo's box is simple, but it's packaging is neat. As you lift two flaps, the notebook magically floats up. We have seen this design on previous model Yogas.

Accessories include AC/DC power adapter, AC power cord, and manuals. The AC/DC adapter is rated upwards of 20v and 3.25A with a resulting current of 65W. The cool thing is that it has multiple voltages and current output for charging different devices like phones. We find 15v at 3A, 9v at 2a, and 5v at 2a.

The top and bottom are quite simple and have a nice texture to them, so you are less likely to lose grip. Fingerprint are picked up easily though. The bottom features some vents for speakers, four rubber feet, and some intake vents for the cooling solution.

The front features an angled lip, so it's easy to open the notebook. The rear features an exhaust vent and a little cover that hides the SD and SIM card slots. The right side of the unit features the recharging bay for the ThinkPad active pen, the power button, the combo headset port, an external Ethernet connector port, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI port, and Kensington lock slot.
