Lenovo had a grand opening last Tuesday introducing a bunch of devices that will work on Windows 8 and they called the whole family of devices a touch optimized family.
Firstly they have re-introduced the IdeaPad Yoga 13 that we have reviewed earlier this year. The Yoga comes with a new hinge that will allow its screen to rotate full 360 degrees and convert it from a laptop into a tablet. This tablet will be available from 26th of October for a price starting from £999.
In addition to this they introduced the smaller 11 inch brother of the Yoga. This smaller ultrabook also brings a punch having insides like a NVidia Tegra 3 processor that Lenovo claims to be the only quad-core processor for Windows RT, with it the user can watch HD movies, play games, surf the web and use Windows applications like Office. It comes with an 11.6 inch screen that is a five-point 1,366×768 pixel IPS screen, thickness of 15.mm and a battery life of 13 hours. It comes with 2GB DDR3 and up to 64GB of internal storage space. From a connection perspective, it will have HDMI ports, USB 2.0 and a SD card reader. It also comes with a 720p camera.
This little laptop can do the same stuff as its older brother, so it can take any position, starting from a normal laptop usage up to a full 360 degree flip called a Tent mode giving video chats or games a life of their own. In addition it can flip in Stand mode that will give the user a perfect viewing screen for watching a movie.
The IdeaPad Yoga 11 will be available from December with a starting price of $799.
