Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 Announced
      #43509 - 10/09/12 11:04 PM

We're no stranger to the long awaited Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga, and guess what? It will be available in 11.6" and 13.3" flavors according to Lenovo. We've seen convertible Windows tablets (those have been around for years) and tablets that copy the Asus Transformer detachable keyboard design, but this tablet has two hinges rather than a single pivot hinge and you can use it either like a standard laptop or a tablet (with the keyboard facing down toward your lap or desk). The 360 degree rotation is an interesting design, but I personally think the single swivel convertible like the ThinkPad Twist is more practical.

Now here's the important part: the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 will run Windows 8 RT on an Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU. Windows RT runs the new Metro UI with Live Tiles but not the desktop mode that resembles Windows 7.

The IdeaPad Yoga 13 runs full Windows 8 on Intel third generation ULV CPUs up to a Core i7. Both models somewhat resemble existing IdeaPad Ultrabook book design (other than the 360 degree hinge).
