Lenovo Announces IdeaPad Yoga 11Sby Jarred Walton on January 9, 2013 1:57 AM EST
Last year at CES 2012, Lenovo unveiled their Yoga 13 laptop/tablet hybrid. The product was one of the most interesting ideas I saw at CES 2012, and it started shipping alongside Windows 8 a few months back. Along with the Yoga 13, Lenovo launched a second device, the Yoga 11. The Yoga 13 is a full-blown Ivy Bridge laptop/tablet, while the Yoga 11 is a Tegra 3 Windows RT device. Despite the similar look and feel and the same family name, the core hardware makes the two devices feel very different in practice.
Lenovo is now showing the Yoga 11S, which puts a full Core i5 processor (i7 worldwide) into the smaller form factor. The display is a 1366x768 IPS panel with 10-point multitouch, and you can get up to 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage. Availability is slated for June, with a starting MSRP of $799.
