Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Ultrabook

Lenovo Yoga Review

 

Windows 8 is an operating system that's a mix of the old and new: it cobbles together a very forward-facing touchscreen interface with the same old Windows we've loved (in its basic form) since before the internet was a thing. [...]

The Lenovo Yoga is an excellent laptop, a mediocre tablet, and a computer that is thoroughly modern and made for Windows 8. Its form factor and excellent screen make it a competitor at its price range against last generation’s top laptops and...

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook

 

Split Personality. With full 360-degree hinges and touchscreen capabilities, the Yoga series is perhaps Lenovo's most ambitious addition to the IdeaPad family to date. Its launch and hardware were designed to coincide with the release of Windows 8,...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 review: a netbook by another name

 

A few years ago, netbooks were small, light, inexpensive, often underpowered computers — and the word quickly became a pejorative term, to be used only with the greatest of disdain as you throw...

Incredible battery life ; Small, sleek design ; Good keyboard and trackpad

Limited functionality because of Windows RT ; Slow, inconsistent performance ; Poor app ecosystem

Is $599 the right price for an Office machine?

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 review

 

More Info Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 shipping this month for $1,099, ARM-powered Yoga 11 coming in December Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 review

Comfortable keyboard ; Epic battery life ; Versatile, well-crafted design ; Wide viewing angles

Sluggish performance ; It's a Windows laptop that doesn't run x86 apps

We love the Yoga 11 for its keyboard, display and long battery life, but it might have more use if it were running full Windows 8.

Review: Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 11 is convertible, portable, and…it runs Windows RT

 

Highly convertible design means lots of viewing options ; Really good full-sized keyboard

Windows RT has limitations ; A little bulky for an 11-inch notebook/tablet

This laptop-tablet hybrid would be a lot more tempting if it ran Windows 8.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a good Windows RT convertible to have around if you want a tablet-like experience, but absolutely need a keyboard. Its flips and acrobatics help usability, but ultimately this is a laptop with a good mix of tablet...

Traditional clamshell form factor. Range of convertible positions. Feels fine in hand as tablet. Very good battery life. Comfortable keyboard. Full size HDMI

Limited Windows RT app library. Can't install older Windows apps. Can't install third-party browser. Local storage a bit small. Only USB 2.0

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 ($669 list) is an 11-inch convertible tablet that mainly acts as a laptop. It's not a docking slate tablet; rather, it's a laptop that flips around so you can use it like a slate tablet, or put it in other positions for...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 review: A better laptop than tablet

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11's keyboard is permanently attached to the tablet section and when in tablet mode, it's bulky, heavy, and awkward to hold. Thankfully, if you'd rather lay your tablet down flat or simply watch movies on it, the Yoga 11's...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 works as a laptop alternative, thanks to its always-attached keyboard and myriad useful ports, and its physical flexibility provides useful ergonomic options. Its battery charges quickly and depletes slowly. Brightness...

As a tablet, the device is too bulky and heavy to hold in your hands, and its Web performance is slow. A full Windows 8 version with updated specs will be available soon for only $150 more.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a great laptop alternative that's unfortunately too bulky to completely replace your tablet.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review

 

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a sleek convertible that offers an awesome 13-plus hours of battery life along with a comfortable keyboard and fairly bright and responsive touch screen. Is that enough to justify spending $649? It depends on whether you're...

Slim and sturdy chassis, Flip design makes it easy to change modes, Bright display, Very long battery life

Oversensitive touchpad lacks palm rejection, Limited app selection, Slow boot time, Feels hefty in tablet mode

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Review

 

This 13-inch convertible laptop features a unique 360-degree pivoting screen. But is that enough to make us love a $1000 Ultrabook tablet?

Solid performance ; Great display ; Nice fit and finish

Exposed" keyboard in tablet and stand modes ; Potentially frustrating power button location ; Limited to no more than 8GB of RAM

Lenovo deserves some credit for trying something new in the convertible notebook/tablet market. The Yoga 13 isn’t “just a laptop with a touchscreen” like many of the new Windows 8 notebooks but Lenovo also wanted to try something different than the...
