Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga Review: Flexible Computing in a Hybrid Form

Lenovo had announced the Yoga at CES 2012 and has finally launched two models in this series – the IdeaPad Yoga 11 and IdeaPad Yoga 13. Windows 8 has taken the concept of laptops and tablets and merged them together so beautifully, and the IdeaPad is a perfect example of this melee. Featuring a touchscreen display that can swivel 360 degrees, you can use this device as a tablet or as a laptop.

The IdeaPad Yoga 13 is powered by a third-generation Intel Core i-series processor and 4 GB of RAM. It has a 13.3-inch IPS display and 128 GB of SSD storage. Lenovo claims that this device can run for up to 8 hours on battery without charging, and it weighs just a little over 1.5 kg. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 starts from Rs 84,290 onwards.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 has an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366X768 pixels. Powering this device is an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and 2 GB of RAM, with a storage space of 64 GB SSD. It runs on Windows RT and is more affordable than the IdeaPad Yoga 13. The IdeaPad Yoga 11, according to Lenovo, has a battery life of up to 11 hours and weighs a mere 1.25 kg. It starts from Rs 61,790 onwards.

The best thing about the IdeaPad is that you can flip it into 4 positions – stand mode, laptop mode, tablet mode or tent mode. It’s ideal for those who are constantly on the move, and love to do their work while commuting.
