Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review

 

Windows 8 hybrid notebooks are fun to play around with, but this is a luxury not everyone can afford. The trouble with these notebooks is that they are simply too expensive and since there're no strict guidelines set by Intel for these Ultrabooks, not...

Onboard storage is also a limiting factor here, but thankfully, you can expand it via the SD card slot. The speakers on the Yoga produce very weak sound. The max volume level is not very high and the audio fidelity is below average. The trackpad works...

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Ultrabook

 

Multifaceted. A compact subnotebook with an 11.6-inch display tha

Pleasant haptics and manufacturing quality; 24 months warranty as standard; Performance with Windows RT; Good 11.6 inch IPS display; Stable 360 degree hinges; No cooling fan; Temperatures when utilized; Convincing battery runtimes

The display lid makes a relatively unstable impression; Too heavy and thick for a tablet; Battery permanently integrated; Keyboard not backlit; Unconvincing keyboard feedback; No additional configuration options

Tablets with Windows RT: Microsoft Surface RT, Asus Vivo Tab RT TF600, the Samsung ATIV Tab or the Samsung ATIV Smart PC. Tablets with other operating systems include the Google Nexus 10 or the Apple iPad 4. Furthermore subnotebooks and Ultrabooks...

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 ca

Beautiful IPS display; Fully functional 10-finger touchscreen; Extremely versatile; Relatively cool under load; Good, stylish build quality; Better than average maximum brightness; Strong hinges; User-removable SSD and RAM

Slightly thicker/heavier than current Ultrabooks; Underwhelming GPU performance; Average battery life; Average keyboard feedback; Average outdoor usability; Non-removable battery; No included stylus; No backlight keyboard

The 360-degree hinges work seemlessly and function well. We would love to see this ability on more Windows 8 IdeaPad models in the future.

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.

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...

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 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...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 review: Flexible in more than one way

 

The Yoga is perhaps one of the most usable Ultrabooks available today. It's got a great keyboard, trackpad, and touchscreen, and it can be used in multiple positions.

Great keyboard, trackpad and touchscreen ; Smooth, responsive display ; Excellent speakers

A little heavy

The Yoga is perhaps one of the most usable devices on the market. It has a great keyboard, trackpad, and touchscreen, and can be used in multiple positions.
