I Flip My Screen Back and Forth

 

When Lenovo released the IdeaPad Yoga 13 last year, there was plenty to like about the 13-inch hybrid laptop. It had decent battery life, it came with a fantastic touchpad, and the 360-degree hinge mechanism that let you flip the laptop into a tablet...

Review: Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11S strikes a compelling pose

 

The Yoga 11S is a major improvement over Lenovo's original ARM-powered Windows RT device, but it still falls short of being the ultimate hybrid.

Excellent all-around design and ergonomics ; Vivid IPS display ; Full version of Windows 8

Mediocre battery life ; Meh performance ; Bulkier than a standard tablet

A major improvement over the original ARM-powered Windows RT device, but still short of being the ultimate hybrid.

Lenovo's long-awaited 11-inch Windows 8 hybrid

 

The IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a smart convertible that puts the laptop first.

The ; is a great 11-inch ultraportable touch-screen laptop that also has a flip-around display for tablet and hybrid use.

Recent 11-inch laptops from Apple and Sony have raised the bar for ultraportables, especially when it comes to battery life. The Yoga 11S needs an upgrade to Intel's latest processors.

Like the larger 13-inch model, the 11-inch Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a useful hybrid that doesn't forget it's a laptop first, but it's stuck with what feels like old hardware for now.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S review

 

Are 11-inch laptops, which we sometimes refer to as ultraportables, suddenly in vogue? You'd be forgiven for thinking so, because after a multiyear drought in which only a handful of models were even worth looking at, we've now got the recent flood,...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S ( Windows 8)

 

The Yoga 11S is one of the most anticipated laptops of the year, especially after the very warm welcome its predecessor received. That predecessor, the 13-inch IdeaPad Yoga 13 , was one of the most talked-about Windows 8 -launch laptops. Though it...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S convertible laptop/tablet has an innovative, trail blazing design. Unfortunately, short battery life and some details hold it back.

10-point touch screen. Range of convertible positions. Nice IPS panel. Comfortable keyboard. Boots and reacts quickly. HDMI out port.

Low battery life. Extra heat venting mars tablet mode. Overly aggressive ambient light sensor. Motion control is gimmicky. No 5GHz WiFi.

COMPARISON TABLE Compare the Lenovo Yoga 11S with several other laptops and tablets side by side.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

 

Being touted as a "mini ultrabook" the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is the latest and greatest to grace the IdeaPad lineup with full-fledged Windows 8 on board. Everything about the Yoga 11 from last year is still present, only we've received a huge upgrade...

In closing, we’ve enjoyed using this machine for the past few weeks. The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S has a unique design, and could be one of my favorite hybrid/portables on the market. It’s made for the traveler, and can do it all whether you’re out and...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

 

Lenovo looks to combine the strengths of the Yoga 11 and 13 in the Yoga 11S. Can what started as an average Windows RT tablet be made better with Windows 8?

360 Hinge Design ; Portable ; Quality Keyboard

Low Screen Resolution ; Limited Battery Life ; Mediocre Performance ; The Yoga 11S offer improved performance to its predecessor, but at the cost of its battery life.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Ultrabook

 

The perfect balance? Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a combination of their Yoga 11 and Yoga 13, lifting elements from both to rebalance battery life, performance, and versatility. Was it worth the effort?

Bright IPS screen with good contrast, Great viewing angles, Solid construction in spite of plastic materials, Versatile design, Good touchscreen, Sturdy, well-made hinges, Good battery life, The solid build and speedy system performance

Very hot under load, Cumbersome as a tablet, Underwhelming GPU performance, Keyboard feedback is weak, No backlit keyboard, Non-removable battery and difficult maintenance, Glossy screen/fingerprints can be a nuisance, A Haswell chip and a better keyboard

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S - 59385438

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S - 59385438 isn't the cheapest cheap laptop out there, nor is it the cheapest Ultrabook or Windows 8 tablet or convertible. But you would be hard pressed to find a better combination of power and versatility at this price...

Can be used as a laptop or tablet, Great design, Latest Intel processor

Available in only one configuration, and from only one retailer (Best Buy), Tablet configuration leaves keyboard exposed, though deactivated
