Lenovo Announces IdeaPad Yoga 11S Windows 8 Convertible Intel Core i5 CPU
      #44012 - 01/07/13 05:26 PM

If you really liked the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 but found it too large for tablet use, or the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 running Windows RT but wanted full Windows 8, Lenovo has the answer. The Lenovo Yoga IdeaPad 11S is the seemingly identical cousin the the 11.6" Yoga 11 but it runs on Intel Core CPUs for greater performance and full Windows 8 glory. That means this little 2.8 lb. fella can run Windows 7 x86 apps like Adobe Photoshop and iTunes, but don't expect battery life to run into double digits like the Yoga 11 (no "S" at the end).

You get the same 360 degree Yoga-stretch goodness, and that means you can bend the display backwards on the sturdy dual hinges to use the machine in tablet, tent mode or traditional laptop mode. It has a 1366 x 768 IPS display and is 0.68" thick (just slightly thicker than the Yoga 11). Like other Yoga convertibles, it will be available in silver gray and clementine orange with a metal casing covered in rubberized paint for a grippy, non-skid feel.

IdeaPad Yoga 11S features an 11.6-inch HD IPS display that supports 10 finger multi-touch and comes with unique features previously only available on Yoga 13: Motion Control lets users simply swipe their hand in front of the webcam to advance photos, videos and other document, and with Lenovo Transition, users can automatically open applications like PowerPoint in full- screen when using Yoga in its other three modes: tent, stand or tablet.
The only bad news? You'll have to wait until June 2013 for this portable powerhouse. The price will start at $799.
