Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

In March 2013, Lenovo officially launched IdeaPad Yoga 13 - the world's first ultrabook with four sensation multi-mode. This laptop has a thin body with a matte finish and is available in two trendy colors - silver gray and clementine orange. The user can use the devices as laptop, tablet, stand, or tent. It has its own unique concept and design in the midst of many other ultrabooks that offers multiple functions. It is equipped with a hinge that enables the multi-touch screen to open up to 360 degrees. However, holding it in tablet mode isn’t really comfortable since users will likely to accidentally press the keyboard keys although they are automatically disabled.

This laptop features a 13-inch touch screen with IPS and a native resolution of 1,600 × 900 pixels. Hence, images look amazing on the sharp display with good contrasts and bright colors. The laptop can be purchased with Intel i3, i5 or i7 processor and runs Windows 8 smoothly. The Windows 8 user experience is enhanced further with the ability to navigate the new Windows 8 Start screen tiles with your fingertips. What makes it even better is the fact that various applications such as photo and video editing can be handled well by it. Considering the reasonable price tag, the IdeaPad Yoga 13 fits those who prefer to have a laptop which can also be used as a tablet PC without having to spend more.

85% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Split Personality. With full 360-degree hinges and touchscreen capabilities, the Yoga series is perhaps Lenovo’s most ambitious addition to the IdeaPad family to date. Its launch and hardware were designed to coincide with the release of Windows 8, generating even more word-of-mouth. Is this $999 hybrid Ultrabook a one trick pony? Or is it a novel concept with a promising future?

It's official, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a completely different beast than the Yoga 11. This one has a great screen and sound quality of the type we'd like to see more often on ultrabooks. With good battery life and a lightweight body, the Yoga 13 is a prime choice for people on the go.

Wandelbares Ultrabook im Test

Wer mit die vielen verschiedenen Einsatzzwecke, die ich im Video beschrieben habe, benötigt wird mit dem Ultrabook sicherlich zurechtkommen. Aber: Man sollte sich auch darauf einlassen, man entdeckt nämlich meist erst bei der Nutzung welchen Modus man benötigt und welcher überflüssig ist. Ich jedenfalls habe den Tablet-Modus am meisten geschätzt und am häufigsten genutzt.

Lenovo has included some added extras that allegedly make using Windows 8 easier. One of these, Motion Control, meant we could wave at the laptop to get it to perform basic tasks. By using the webcam the laptop could skip music tracks or move between photos when we waved a hand at it. Clever, but it has limited uses at present.

Like most of the Windows 8 convertible tablet/laptops we’ve looked at, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 isn’t quite the perfect hybrid. However, if you regard it as a touch-screen Ultrabook with a cool twist, it certainly succeeds. It’s generally well-built, looks stylish and feels great, and its flexible hinge gives you lots of different usage scenarios. While no match for the ThinkPad range, its keyboard is pleasant enough to type on and its touchpad is lovely, while that 1,600 x 900 IPS screen supports 10-finger touch. It also has plenty of power under the hood, and backs this with decent battery life. If a more affordable Core i3/i5 version becomes available in the UK, it’ll be a steal.

The Yoga 13 has a rather enthralling design, mostly because of the dexterous design. It remains very thin as an ultrabook, and the ability to sustain various Yoga positions makes it useful in various usage scenarios otherwise unimagined till now. Ever thought your ultrabook could sit with you on the counter, displaying the recipe while you cook? Exactly my point. Excellent battery life makes it even more of a value for money proposition. The keyboard is quite disappointing though, not in terms of the key response and consistency, but for the dip when you type. All things considered, the Yoga 13 is a slightly better deal than the Dell XPS 12 convertible.

In our review of the Yoga 11 we felt that too much cash was being asked for what amounted to too little in return. Enter the IdeaPad Yoga 13, however, and it tackles these issues head on: it's got more power and, importantly, runs the full version of Windows 8, so it can do much more. Overall there are more-powerful options out there, but the Yoga 13 does succeed in delivering enough power in a striking and luxury body. It's the build element that elevates the score, despite the noted expense which may be enough to cause some prospective buyers to look elsewhere.

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Review
Source: Ultrabook News English
It’s been a lot of fun to review the Yoga 13 but our concerns about the weight and usability have been confirmed. A 13” tablet could be useful for gaming and business but we see the Yoga 13 not quite reaching the full potential when used as a tablet. Certainly for some tablet users the digitizer component is missing. For consumers, it’s heavy.

100% Lenovo Yoga 13 - My New Machine
Source: notebookforums.com English
As what I primarily do is writing and programming, having a good keyboard is critical for me, which is why a tablet alone can’t work for me, and when I started looking I needed at least a tablet/keyboard dock hybrid. The Yoga caught my eye for being an actual laptop with a touchscreen integrated, but the hinging allowing it to be used entirely as a tablet. I did a lot of scrutinizing of the machine on display in Best Buy before I finally purchased it to make sure it fit my needs.

Making a usable Windows 8 hybrid is all about compromise, and Lenovo has managed to get the balance just about right. The double-jointed hinge balances flexibility with durability, performance is good and the IPS display is simply glorious. Rather than making an overweight tablet with crippled laptop features, Lenovo has created a solid, attractive Ultrabook that doubles as an occasional, king-sized 13.3in tablet. It still isn’t perfect, but for £1,000, the Yoga 13 is the first hybrid Windows 8 device worth shelling out for.

Overall, I think Lenovo has shown that a convertible notebook can be a viable option in today’s market, especially for someone that is still on the fence about wanting a tablet but still requiring a notebook for productivity purposes. You can expect to pay a slight premium considering the hardware that’s included but that’s also expected given the flexibility and hybrid nature of the system.

The bottom line is that the Yoga 13 is a powerful, full-featured Ultrabook but the 360-degree hinge design might be as much of a design flaw as it is a unique selling point. If you want a laptop that converts into a tablet without the exposed keyboard then there are other options like the Dell XPS 12 or Lenovo's own ThinkPad Twist. If you like the various screen positons of the Yoga 13 and don't mind the exposed keyboard then this is a fabulous Windows 8 PC.

Lenovo Yoga Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
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 ultrabooks, such as the Asus Zenbook or Thinkpad X1. If you never flip the Yoga into tablet mode, it’s a great laptop, and if you do, it’s a little bit of bonus functionality that doesn’t hurt the form factor that much. At $1000, which is its MSRP price, it’s certainly a competitor, but as this form factor and set of guts starts to edge down price-wise after the holiday season, the Yoga becomes an easy laptop to recommend.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga is aptly named - it's flexible in more than one way. Not only can this Ultrabook be used as a laptop and a tablet, its screen can actually swivel around the hinge 360 degrees to maximize the tablet experience. It is quite big and heavy at 16.9mm and 1.47kg to use a handheld tablet for any length of time but that's the nature of a hybrid device like this. And it's a pretty cool device when you consider that, oh yeah, it's both a laptop and a tablet.

In our real world testing, the system was a pleasure to use. Not only was it responsive, but the keyboard and touchpad were very comfortable to use as well. In addition, the muti-touch display was quick to respond to our demands and we found it to be useful in all configurations—tablet, stand, tent, and even laptop mode.

I’ll admit it – at first I was a bit skeptical of the Yoga as a concept. In theory, it seems like an Ultrabook-slash-tablet is doomed to be mediocre at best. But the Yoga is surprisingly awesome. Sure, it’s not going to replace your iPad, but for a laptop it does the tablet thing very well (and it does the laptop thing pretty well, too). It helps that the keyboard, trackpad, and touchscreen are all top-notch – the Yoga is so eminently usable that I barely care what its performance scores are.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a very good ultrabook, and with a price tag of $999, it offers a lot—a reasonable feature set, touch screen, and good design. If you just want a great ultrabook, the Yoga 13 is good, but the Editors' Choice Toshiba Portege Z935-P300 $799.99 at Amazon Marketplace is better, with similar specs and performance, but lighter, thinner construction and a lower price. As a hybrid ultrabook, however, the Yoga 13 has a versatile touch screen, a flexible design, and the best laptop-to-tablet transition mechanics we've yet seen in a hybrid. It's good enough that we hope other manufacturers adopt similar designs, but at a better size—the Yoga 13 is just a little too big for comfortable use as a tablet. If you are shopping for a Windows 8 ultrabook laptop with touch capability and plan on only using the tablet mode occasionally, then the Yoga 13 is a smart choice; but the Dell XPS 12 is better as a tablet.

The Lenovo Yoga is a very smart move for the company, and is a device that certainly gives us a preview of the hybrid laptop/tablet devices that are going to invade the market in the coming months. As a laptop the Yoga performs well, but as a tablet the device just seems a bit too big to use comfortably. The responsiveness of the screen could also be fine-tuned a bit to make the Windows 8 experience absolutely perfect. While the Yoga does have a few strikes against it, it’s nevertheless a sturdy and capable device that is perfect for anyone who wants the best of both the laptop and tablet world.

Back in January, when we first saw the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga at CES, we declared it to be one of the most memorable things to come out of the show. That was 10 months ago, though, and thanks to that gap, there's a bit of a discrepancy between our initial impressions and our reaction following a week of real-world use.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is one of the more eye-catching convertible tablets to commemorate Windows 8's launch. It has all the features we like from the IdeaPad U line (slimness, a classy chassis and very good keyboard) paired with a sharp and bright 1600 x 900 IPS touch screen. The Yoga is quick and responsive thanks to the SSD drive and Windows 8's spritely performance.

Overall this is a thoughtful and very usable hybrid, with an abundance of both little touches, like a motion-control system that works via the webcam, and big ones, like the keyboard automatically disabling when the Yoga’s in slate mode. While I’m not sure that anyone really wants a tablet that’s quite this big, at the very least it’s a solid contender for the laptop user who just wants the occasional touchscreen experience available.

The IdeaPad Yoga is an able contortionist, blurring the line between laptop and tablet, while enabling users to explore the full capabilities of Windows 8. The soft-touch design, comfortable keyboard and swift performance also impresss. Those willing to spend $200 more may prefer the Dell XPS 12, which sports a brighter and higher-res 1080p screen and whose design makes it easier to switch from notebook to tablet mode.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga is a good Ultrabook for the price, even without some of the fancier features. The design, display, and performance are enough to capture our attention. But the touchscreen and versatile convertibility put it over the top. The Yoga showcases everything that Windows 8 has to offer. Plus, the $999 price feels like a bargain when you take all the features and specs into consideration.

The biggest hardware trend marking the launch of Windows 8 is the proliferation of touch-screen laptop/tablet hybrids. Some have screens that pull apart to become separate tablets, while others have screens that flip, twist, or rotate to give you a tabletlike shape to hold. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a convertible touch-screen laptop/tablet that most importantly doesn't compromise the traditional laptop experience.

Because all Windows 8 Ultrabooks share the same specification - at press time, every Ultrabook featured the same base processor - hardware and design will be the differentiating factor for the next half year, and possibly longer. That means aesthetics, batteries, input device, and other intangibles will matter more than anything else. With the hyper-flexible Yoga, Lenovo has the most, or at least the first, meaningful intangible. For now, it's hard to imagine anyone topping a device that can be favorably compared to other laptops as well as tablet convertibles.

The big question for us though, is whether anyone actually needs something like this? The answer is probably yes, but it's not going to be hugely mass market. As pretty and well built as it is, a separate laptop/tablet solution might be more convenient for those planning to make their work/play ratio the more fun side of 70/30.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 was introduced at Consumer Electronics Show 2012 alongside other touchscreen laptops using the new Metro UI of Windows 8. What’s special about the hybrid Yoga 11 is its display hinge, which can – as the name suggests - fold back 360 degrees to create a tablet for casual web browsing or light entertainment.

Instead of the usual Intel Core i variants found in 90% of the other devices, Lenovo uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC, which makes the Yoga 11 an attractive alternative to dozens of other different, yet similar Android tablets. Thanks to the ARM architecture, the Yoga 11 remains extremely cool even under full load and achieves an impressive battery life, which can even compete with the iPad. In addition, the gorgeous, contrast-rich IPS screen is very responsive due to the slim Windows RT. Unless it had not two serious flaws, the Yoga 11 would be a serious competitor in the tablet market. First of all, the Yoga 11 is too heavy to be used for a decent amount of time, and in contrast to the iOS and Android market, only few apps are available in the the Windows market place.

Thanks to its full-size keyboard, a very long battery life and a full version of Microsoft Office, the Yoga 11 excels office related-work. As it cannot run x86 software, only few users, e.g., writers and journalists, will find this devices attractive. If you often travel to places without a power outlet, cannot live without Microsoft Office and like light entertainment every now and then, the Yoga 11 will be one of the best choices available.

Source: PC Perspective English
So essentially, it’s a good basic notebook with some appealing design perks, and a decent tablet if it’s all you’ve got, but not an excellent representation of either. There are some tasks for which it would be nearly perfectly suited: for instance, creating basic documents or writing, typing up notes in class, and general lightweight web browsing. Overall, however, given the inherent constraints of the chipset and operating system, the bottom line is that the Yoga 11 makes for a lousy replacement PC, but a wonderful companion.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a very interesting device. It is a laptop, but an underpowered one. It is a tablet, but is larger and thicker than other tablets out there. The Yoga 11 offers the best of both worlds, for those who need it. That is the big key factor, if you really need both a tablet and laptop. As a laptop it is compact and light, but is underpowered. The NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor is only 1.3 GHz and you can only have 2GB of DDR3 memory and 64GB of storage space. If you plan on doing any intensive tasks like Photoshop, video editing or PC gaming don’t expect to be able to do them on the Yoga 11. On the tablet side of things the Yoga 11 performs well, but if you want the pure tablet experience it is going to be pretty weird holding the Yoga with the keyboard on the back. Also many other tablets offer a smaller and thinner profile.

The Yoga 11 has a unique, easy-to-use design and a great keyboard. The Windows RT and its dwindling app selection, however, will make me wait until Lenovo decides to release a full Windows 8-equipped 11-incher.

You’ll have to think this one through – unlike the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, you’ve not got a full-powered PC on your hands here. This device is made to be a traveler, and certainly not your one single machine if you’ve got a computer-based job. Should you want to use your PC for nothing but social networking and play, this is a good choice – it’s relatively inexpensive and it’s good for travel.

Reaching a definite verdict on this model is difficult for several reasons. Firstly, it’s a niche device that ends up as severely limited in some regards and exceptionally flexible and functional in others. If you’re in its target market, this notebook’s usability is undeniable, with the simple transformation from tablet to notebook (and a few intermediary steps) of particular interest.

As Windows RT devices go, the Yoga 11, in terms of performance and display quality, is average—meaning, actually, quite good. Aside from a slightly shorter battery life, it held up well against the other Windows RT devices we've reviewed. This notebook/tablet convertible is well-made and attractive.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is one of the better-executed Windows RT systems on the market right now. It balances usability, weight, compactness, battery life, and screen size to give you the Windows RT convertible that you want if you are a laptop traditionalist. The Dell XPS 10 is a better traveller, with more battery life and the option to leave some of the bulk behind, so it holds on to its Editors' Choice award. That said, if you're ready to experience Windows RT and don't need legacy Windows compatibility, the Yoga 11 can give you that old school Office-running laptop experience most of the time, with some forays into the world of the touch-screen tablet.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a sleek convertible that offers an awesome 13-plus hours of battery life along with a comfortable keyboard and fairly bright and responsive touch screen. Is that enough to justify spending $649? It depends on whether you're willing to live within the limitations of Windows RT, which applies to both the inability to run traditional desktop apps (other than Office) and the still somewhat lackluster selection in the Windows Store.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 carries a price tag of Rs 61,790, but you can find it online for roughly Rs 56,000. While this may seem like a good price for a Windows hybrid Ultrabook, it’s actually not. All said and done, the Yoga 11 is nothing more than a tablet with a keyboard and should not be mistaken for a real notebook. Windows RT is the main culprit here as it’s very limiting in terms of app support. The good thing is that you get a familiar working environment as Windows, but you can’t really do much with it since none of your standard EXE files will work and there isn’t any Modern app equivalent for most of them either. What you’re left with is a notebook that’s good for a bit of gaming, HD video playback, working on Office documents and Internet surfing – all of which can be done on a dedicated Android or iOS tablet, which are a lot cheaper. The Yoga 11 would make an excellent buy at about Rs 30,000 or less, but nothing more than that.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 has a lot going for it: it's slim, helpfully transforms into a tablet for watching video more comfortably and has enough juice under the hood for most of the everyday essentials. Sadly, it's just far too expensive. For the same money you can get a very powerful Windows 8 touchscreen laptop in the form of the Asus S400E Vivobook or save yourself £300 and buy Microsoft's Surface tablet.

We would have given the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 three stars, but it unfortunately struggles to successfully merge the laptop and tablet into one harmonious device. It has its advantages, but it never really takes a clear position between the two and simply does not represent the best of both worlds. Windows RT limits what the Yoga 11 can do as a laptop, and the weight and keyboard limit what it can do as a tablet.

Once you factor in the presence of Windows RT, however, the appeal of this hybrid swiftly wanes. Indeed, while the Yoga 11’s stamina and design have a healthy allure, the limitations of Windows RT, not to mention the paltry selection of applications in the Windows Store, severely hamper its potential. At £500 or thereabouts, we might have to think twice; at £700 – just a little less than fully-fledged Ultrabooks – the Yoga 11 is far too expensive. Don’t abandon hope yet, however: with Lenovo set to release a Windows 8, Intel-powered Yoga 11S sometime this year, we’d keep that credit card at the ready.

The nVidia Tegra processor means that the Lenovo Yoga 11 is only a modestly powered laptop, but it’s still perfectly adequate for routine tasks such as web browsing, running Microsoft Office or relaxing with some streaming video. Its super-slimline design is highly portable and comfortable to use in both laptop and tablet modes, and the Yoga’s impressive battery life ensures that it should earn its keep when you’re on the move.

While we're pleased that there's another member of Team Windows RT on the market, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 won't do Microsoft any favours in convincing people that it's a sensible purchase. The sky-high price tag, mediocre performance and limited capabilities need to be overcome, and getting sub-£400/$500 products on the shelves would be a good start. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a nifty device in itself, but it's not as fun as Microsoft Surface, and unless you're looking for a work laptop that doubles as a nifty tablet to watch films on, we'd advise forking out for a more expensive Sony Vaio Duo 11 or the more portable Microsoft Surface.

Lenovo's been true to the Ideapad series' name: the Yoga 11 sure does deliver plenty of successful ideas within its well-built, "magic-hinged" laptop-meets-tablet design. It looks grand from the outside, and the quality screen keeps up the pace on the inside. Overall it looks like a top-form machine. If money were no object then we'd be fairly smitten by the Yoga 11. The price does buy a quality construction and a decent HD screen, but it's still a little too wallet-stretching for it to score better overall.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S

One of the latest of the fashionable ultraportable devices, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is an 11 inch touch laptop and tablet convertible. Those familiar with the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga line will be pleased to note that this machine runs Windows 8, which improves tremendously upon the previous iteration which ran Windows RT. Unfortunately, a look at the specs yields disappointment. With the range of processors available, from i3 to i7, all are the third generation of Intel processors. With most similar devices carrying the fourth generation Haswell chips, this leaves the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S severely in the dust in term of battery life. Battery life is described as lasting only 6 hours, which is too short a time compared to what most devices out there can do.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is equipped with an island style keyboard and a buttonless trackpad. The 11.6 inch IPS touch screen has a 1366 x 768 resolution display, with a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9. The IPS screen will mean bright and bold colours. Ports that support a good amount of uses are available with the HDMI-out and SD card reader, but the compromise of having only one USB 3.0 port while the other is an outdated USB 2.0 port might be a downside too great for this day and age. Also outdated is the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. Overall, the smart design of this device is appealing, but the outdated nature of many of its components makes it seem like it’s not worth the price it sports.

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?

For those that are interested in the Lenovo Yoga 11S (and I’m sure many are because it’s a great bit of kit) I’ve put together two video reviews for you. They follow-on from the full review posted here last week and, as that review did, focuses on the value and performance of the Ivy Bridge Core i3 1.4Ghz version at $699.

Lenovo Yoga 11S Review (Ivy Bridge, Core i3, Low-Cost Version)
Source: Ultrabook News English
3.1lbs of tablet isn’t that nice in casual usage and near impossible to use with one hand. The Yoga 11s is easier to handle than the Yoga 13 but 30% of the weight needs to be lost if it’s going to compete in the consumer tablet space. It works as an armchair tablet though where you might find yourself flipping back-and-forth to laptop mode which can often be easier for typing. One mode which works really well is an easel mode. When we tried this on the Yoga 13 the system registered the device as ‘in laptop mode’ which meant the touch keyboard didn’t appear. On the Yoga 11S that’s not the case. Watch TV and keep the Windows 8 Wikipedia app up and ready for action. Split-screen with Twitter perhaps? The Yoga 11s is a fantastic TV-buddy.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is clearly an improvement over the Yoga 11. It's powerful, lightweight and has a nice screen—easily one of the best 11-inch hybrids we've seen. The biggest drawback is its relatively low battery life, which nearly cost it its fourth star. Mobile devices these days need to be able to last more than just a few hours.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Convertible Notebook Review: A Game of Compromises
Source: PC Perspective English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S occupies an important middle ground between the larger-sized Yoga 13 (which is simply too cumbersome to serve as a reasonable tablet for many people) and the ARM-powered Yoga 11 (which, in spite of its superior battery life and silent operation, is handicapped by its inability to run Windows 8 and native x86 applications). But the real question is: does it manage to balance the most critical aspects of a great convertible properly, or do the trade-offs of the higher-powered chipset outweigh the benefits?

Typically with today's portable computers, you get to choose from either a laptop or a tablet. With the Lenovo Yoga 11S, you don't have to choose. The lid opens like a regular laptop but if you keep rotating it past 180-degrees, it folds flat against the back and turns into a tablet. When it's in tablet mode, the keyboard does lay outward.

The build quality of the Lenovo Yoga 11S is very good aside from a little keyboard flex that I mentioned. The smart choice of soft/textured plastics definitely brings the quality feel up a notch over normal plastic alternatives. The ‘slot-in’ case (not included) is stylish and modern looking, which might appeal to those of you using the Yoga 11S in a work/meeting environment. If you’re looking for a light Ultrabook convertible, the Lenovo Yoga 11S get’s our vote, just be sure that the slower Y-series processor is up to your needs.

As I found with the Yoga 13, this system works well as a notebook. It’s thin and light enough to carry around with you throughout the day. Windows 8 combined with a large screen makes for a great tablet experience compared to the bevy of “standard” sized tablets on the market but there are some areas where it could be improved upon when used as a slate. Furthermore, for a system that is a good bit smaller than the original, I expected it to be a bit lighter on its feet or perhaps a tiny bit thinner. In reality, it’s only marginally lighter than its bigger brother and the exact same thickness. Ultimately if it were up to me, I’d sit on my funds a bit longer and wait for Haswell to find its way into Lenovo’s next convertible Ultrabook.

As a laptop, the Yoga 11S has lots to offer. It's a nice little machine that has impressed us in general use. There are some interesting things to note. For a start, we tested the Core i3 version of the machine, which doesn't seem to appear on the Lenovo site, but you can buy it from PC World and the like, for £700. We can certainly see it being a staple of university students and business users who need to travel a lot, but need a solid, reliable computer that you can type properly on, and despite that slightly odd keyboard, this machine still makes a nice place to work.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S isn't a bad device by any means, but it does feel a tad too expensive for what it offers. The main draw for the device is its iconic design. The Lenovo Yoga's form factor with its 360 hinge design remains one of the best on the market. The device is able to switch between tablet to notebook mode and everything else in-between in the blink of an eye. However those devices also don't offer the flexibility and diversity of the Yoga design. Those looking for a versatile design and don't mind relinquishing on pure performance will be best served by the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S.

There are plenty of reasons to love Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga 11S: it’s compact and gorgeous, and the design is both flexible and practical. We sadly can’t recommend this Core i7 model, simply because the price is so steep – but the entry-level Core i3 model, coming in at a mere £699 inc VAT, is a great choice for anyone who doesn’t mind sacrificing a little more horsepower. The only thing which could make the IdeaPad Yoga 11S substantially better is a battery-extending Haswell processor. If you’re desperate to buy now, you won’t be disappointed, but we’ll be keeping our credit card on standby for the time being.

The Yoga 11S, like so many other convertibles, tries to combine a decent laptop with a good-enough tablet. And, like the Yoga 13, this smaller sibling is more successful than most. We’re still a ways away from a convertible that can rival an iPad or Nexus 10 as a tablet, but Lenovo’s latest effort comes as close as any, and does so without sacrificing traditional PC strengths.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is an oddball laptop if you focus too much on its unusual hinge. Think of it as a side feature, however, and the truth is revealed. This is an attractive, versatile and thoroughly practical laptop. It’s best thought-of as a laptop first and a tablet second, as it’s a bit too heavy to carry for long periods and having a keyboard on the rear is not always desirable. But it’s a well-made, good-looking, powerful hybrid.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a refresh of the Lenovo Yoga tablets, providing even better specifications at an affordable price. The 13.3 inch display has an astounding pixel resolution of 3200 by 1800 pixels, which is one of the highest resolutions for this screen size. The hardware specifications are also decent. It comes with an Intel Core i5, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD to give good overall performance.

Sadly, there is only one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port and an older WiFi module. There is no Ethernet port for wired connectivity or VGA port for older projectors. The only video output is an micro-HDMI port. The battery life of the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is also improved to last roughly about 7 hours and 10 minutes with moderate load.

The keyboard is rather similar to the older Yoga tablet series, because the previous design was already sturdy and functional. The large trackpad leaves something to be desired but is good enough. In short, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a decent upgrade from older Yoga tablets. It provides very good functionality at an affordable price.

80% Review Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Convertible | Notebookcheck
Pixel-packed performer. Last year’s Yoga 13 was one of the most popular Ultrabooks yet, and for good reason: while it wasn’t perfect, it was smartly-designed, with a unique (and sturdy) build and good performance for its price point. One year later, can Lenovo’s successor carry the torch?

A stunning, slim design paired with great build quality gets this machine off to a good start, and the Yoga impresses further with great ergonomics and decent performance. The high-resolution screen has its pros and cons, though, and battery life could be better. It’s an excellent laptop but remains unwieldy as a tablet, so we’d think hard about whether you need that functionality before buying this ahead of market-leading Ultrabooks.

Source: Good Gear Guide English
There are only a couple of things we don't like about the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro (mainly its Wi-Fi module and the touchpad driver), but overall it's a fantastic product that's fun to use. We had no problems using as a laptop, a tablet, and as a display device. Well worth considering if you're after a hybrid Ultrabook and can afford the 2K price.

70% Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 review: 11-inch convertible that's far more attractive than heavy 15-inch budget laptops
Source: PC Advisor English
In some respects the Yoga 2 is a real bargain, as it provides good screen quality, battery life and lightweight design at a very competitive price. Performance is below-par, although it will still handle routine web browsing, streaming video and wordprocessing perfectly well. And, with its lightweight, convertible design, it's a far more attractive device than the big, heavy 15-inch laptops that most manufacturers offer as their low-cost option.

100% Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook Review
Source: Think Computers English
For an Ultrabook I really do not see much missing from the Yoga 2 Pro. Some may complain about only two USB ports, but that seems adequate. I currently use both, one for my portable hard drive and the other to charge my iPhone. The SD card reader definitely helps as that is what I would have needed another USB port for. All in all the Yoga 2 Pro is pretty much a perfect refresh to the original Yoga. There honestly is nothing I can really say bad about it. The model we reviewed sells for around $999.99, but there are other models available as well. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award!

Like its predecessor, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro isn’t perfect, but its novel hinge and impressive display certainly go a long way to make up for its flaws. At just under £1,000, it’s also roughly £250 less than other 3,200x1,800 resolution laptops such as the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus. The Yoga 2 Pro’s price also gives it a huge edge over other, similarly priced Ultrabooks with lower 1,920x1,080 resolutions. If you want a fun two-in-one device with a gorgeously detailed screen, the Yoga 2 Pro is the convertible laptop for you.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review
Source: Ultrabook News English
It wasn’t until we really got down to reviewing and testing the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro that we realized how good it actually was. This Core i7 version has some really impressive performance yes, but the the 360-degree screen on any Yoga 2 Pro allows interesting extended usage modes. But, and we think this is really important, it’s also a notebook that can be taken out of the box and used without any fuss at all. It performs perfectly. It’s quiet and has great battery life and from the style and build point-of-view it’s also really impressive. Our one reservation is with the screen which although it’s incredibly sharp causes some desktop software to become difficult to use at full resolution. The color cast issue could be an issue to some types of users and unfortunately that would include creative and media types that might be interested in the Yoga 2 Pro. A big red flag goes up to anyone needing 5Ghz Wi-Fi support because, strangely, it’s not available.

The IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro had all the makings of a fantastic hybrid, but the screen has wildly inconsistent image quality and the performance takes an enormous hit once you use it as a tablet. Lenovo could still set things right with a better screen profile and a less bridled processor.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review
Source: Slashgear English
For the enterprise customer, the Yoga 2 Pro might be a great fit. Impromptu presentations become easier as the device flips into Tent orientation. Stand mode makes it easier to use while on a plane or train (or on the couch), and you’ll still enjoy all that Windows has to offer in any position you can bend it into. For the consumer, it’s an interesting niche device, but one that makes a few too many compromises for our liking.

On a technical level, Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro is probably the best $1000 Windows laptop you can buy right now. The hardware you get for the same price as the entry-level 11-inch MacBook Air is better than what you'd get for that price from any other PC maker, Apple included: a 13-inch 3200x1800 IPS touchscreen, 128GB SSD, 4GB of RAM, and Haswell-based Intel Core i5-4200U processor with integrated HD 4400 graphics. And all of that packed into a 3-pound chassis that's thinner and more refined than last year's Yoga, fully-articulating hinge included.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is a quality device, but it may not be the best convertible notebook. The big issue for the Yoga 2 Pro is its added weight in Tablet mode. While 3lbs. is incredibly lightweight for a notebook, it's bulky for a tablet. Instead the 2lbs. Microsoft Surface Pro 2, which can detach form its keyboard dock is better choice for users, who want a true convertible hybrid.

Although Lenovo’s included applications add some utility to the Yoga 2 Pro, we can’t see ourselves using some of them very often. That said, they’re not doing much harm either, and Lenovo’s additions are similar in quality and utility to other mobile systems we’ve reviewed over the years.

The Yoga 2 is a great laptop/tablet combo. Overall, it's one of the best I've seen at any price and quite usable in either role. Just don't expect the usual stellar Lenovo typing experience. I also wish Lenovo would do some future-proofing by offering an integrated 802.11ac adapter.

This is a great laptop. If you were to take the Yoga 2 Pro back in time 3 years and show it to anyone—including a TechRadar editor—they would have been ecstatic. This kind of performance and a 3200 x 1800 screen with over three hours of battery life was literally impossible on a Windows-based portable in 2010. Some of Lenovo's pre-loaded software borders on bloat, and we struggled to find more than handful of uses for half of the Yoga's operating modes. It's also a shame that the battery life is so low, for Haswell as least, but you are getting that gorgeous display as a trade off. For what you're paying, you're getting your money's worth.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is summed up by the terms innovative hinge and brilliant screen. If those are what you are looking for, then by all means grab one and extensively try it out. That said, the current Editors' Choice Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is a better touch-screen ultrabook overall with a similar brilliant QHD+ screen. The Yoga 2 Pro is innovative because of its flexible usage scenarios, but its overall weight and bulkiness keeps it from getting our highest recommendation. If you can't quite give up the clamshell form factor, the Yoga 2 Pro is well worth trying out, but please hold on to your receipt if you're expecting an Apple iPad-like$499.00 at Target.com experience from the Yoga 2 Pro's Tablet mode.

Lenovo took their original Yoga convertible design and made a huge number of improvements to it. The system is not only thinner and lighter than the original but packs an incredibly details display that is a thing to behold. The best part is that it is one of the most affordable convertible ultrabooks on the market. Sadly, the design is far from perfect as there are a number of compromises that were made likley to keep the prices down.

While the Yoga 2 Pro offers a very good laptop / tablet combination, it ultimately makes an excellent laptop more so than a tablet. This is down to two things – the first with Windows not being the most pretty to use in Portrait mode, and the second being that it’s still a bit weird to feel the keys at the back of the device when it’s folded into tablet mode. However, these are far from deal breakers, and at the end of the day the Yoga 2 Pro is probably one of the best Ultrabooks I’ve seen this year. Its beautiful design combined with decent hardware make it an excellent choice for anyone looking for a superior yet affordable Ultrabook.

There’s no question that the Yoga 2 Pro is a triumph. It’s lighter, stronger, prettier and all-round better than before. And, somehow, Lenovo has managed to deliver all this for only £1,000. We have to be realistic: the high-DPI display is more of a limitation than a benefit at this time, but at this price, we’d be more than willing to put up with the occasional annoyance. It’s a remarkable achievement.

The Yoga 2 Pro addresses many of our complaints about the original: The display is sharper and the overall package has been slimmed down so that it's noticeably thinner and lighter. At the same time, the Yoga 2 Pro is still the most versatile Windows convertible we know of. It's also well-built, with a sturdy hinge and build materials that dutifully hide all your grimy fingerprints.

While we don’t have any hard sales numbers, we have strong suspicions that Lenovo’s original IdeaPad Yoga was one of the more successful convertibles of the last year, if not one of the more successful PCs, period. With a stunning Retina-besting display, and a slimmer exterior, Lenovo’s Yoga 2 Pro is better in every way than last year’s model, save for battery life.

The only other thing we could recommend for a follow-up Yoga is adding one more USB port considering having only two tends to keep your options of what to connect to them pretty slim. The Yoga 2 Pro is a great addition to Lenovo’s line of ultrabooks that has us excited to see what the company does next with the line. As long as they continue to churn out more ultrabooks like the Yoga 2 Pro, and less like the Flex 14, we’ll happily continue to recommend them.

The all-around best-in-class example of a first-generation Windows 8 hybrid was the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga, a clever fold-back laptop-turned-tablet that was almost universally liked in both its 13-inch and 11-inch versions. A major update to our favorite Windows 8 hybrid, the IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro is still a better laptop than tablet, but the new version adds a future-proof better-than-HD display at a great price.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro hands-on review: Set to be the best hybrid around
Source: PC Advisor English
The Yoga 2 Pro still has the same cleverly hinged design allowing the screen to rotate almost a full 360 degrees. This means it can transform into four modes which Lenovo call laptop, tent, stand and tablet. Once again the device has a premium and luxurious feel and it's been made thinner and lighter than its predecessor. It’s now just under 1.4 kg and a slender 15.5 mm thick. The Yoga 2 Pro can be summed up as sleek.

Hands on: Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 2 Pro review
Source: Techradar English
The Lenovo Yoga was a flip in the right direction for Ultrabooks when it was first released. But it offered in style points - the ability to bend the laptop to your viewing preference - it didn't really match in spec appeal. Having an Ivy Bridge processor inside and given a rather low-res 1,600 x 900 display means you are never going to win any awards in the power stakes.

As an all in one device this is one of the most flexible we've seen. Not only has Lenovo crammed a stunning screen and powerful specs into a body 10 per cent slimmer than the last model - but it's done it with thought. Gesture and voice controls are the next logical step for a device that acts as a screen on a stand. We'd bend over backwards to get one of these.

Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956

The Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 is a 10 inch tablet with a 16:10 ratio display. The aesthetic is minimalist and clean, with a silver, sturdy construction and a built in kickstand that folds out of the unique ergonomic rounded base to reveal a microSD card slot. The configuration options of storage are limited to either 16GB or 32GB, so the microSD slot is a welcome addition that will allow users to expand storage by up to 64GB. With its 1280 x 800 resolution display, this tablet has 151 PPI. So, the display is one of the major downsides of this device, especially when compared to similarly priced machines.

Powered by the MT8125 Quad-Core ARM-SoC with 1GB RAM, this device will not churn out blazing fast performance, or give users the capability to play demanding games. On a positive note, the energy efficiency of this component means that the Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 will last. Running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, this device is not the most up-to-date, but Lenovo has overlain their own UI over it, making it possibly one of the simplest and most user friendly adaptation. Those who are new to Android will appreciate the simplification. Emblazoned on the box is the symbol that proclaims Dolby Digital Plus, but unfortunately the audio is weak and tinny. The Lenovo IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10-59387956 is a well designed machine on the outside, but there are plenty of potentially better options out there, with better specs and certainly more value for money.

Kicking it. The innovative IdeaTab Yoga Tablet 10 comes with an integrated kickstand which allows switching between what Lenovo calls stand, hold, and tilt mode. Is this standout feature enough to differentiate the tablet with its middle-of-the-road hardware and average feature set from the competition?

You can't help but wonder how much those quirky embelishments and fancy materials have increased costs, though, and it's meant that corners have been cut in the most vital areas - display quality and power. It's a big tablet for little money, though, and that distinctive design and excellent battery life will make it appealing to many - just don't let the premium aesthetics fool you into thinking the innards are equally high-end.

Being brutally honest, probably not. While we like the design and are very impressed with the battery life, it just feels like another also-ran in the incredibly competitive Android tablet space. Its specifications are pretty average and benchmarks suggest a weaker performance than cheaper machines like the Tesco Hudl and even the aging iPad 2. On top of that, the 1,280 x 800 screen resolution is lower than some mobile phones.

Gaming ability is likewise below par. In the GFXBench 2.7 T-Rex HD test, it gained a score of 4.8fps, a long way behind modern tablets such as the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9in, which scored 14fps. This is most clearly illustrated in the Tablet 10's skipping and faltering frame rate while playing demanding 3D games such as Asphalt 8: Airborne, a task that ultimately proved too much for it.

The Yoga Tablet 10 looks great and the innovative design is the main selling point of this device. The wedge shape profile means holding it in portrait, in either hand, puts most of the weight in your hand making it more comfortable to use.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet review: long battery life in an otherwise disappointing device
Source: Engadget English
Lenovo's Yoga Tablet has potential, but ultimately the device feels unfinished. It's a slate with good hardware, complete with a clever kickstand design, that rides on the esteemed Yoga name. Lenovo relied way too heavily on that branding, though; unlike the Ultrabooks with their largely high-caliber specs, the tablet sports an unacceptably mediocre display, packs a sluggish processor and delivers a bizarrely skinned version of Android 4.2.

In short, we really can't recommend the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 to anyone. It has missed its mark, though Lenovo might be onto something with this form factor. We're hoping for big things from Lenovo in the tablet space, but unfortunately the Yoga Tablet 10 falls short in nearly every category. If you've had your eye on this tablet and were considering it, go with the aforementioned tablets instead.

50% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 review: New screen size, same terrible tablet
Source: TechHive.com English
At $300 the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 is priced favorably against other 10-inch tablets (unlike it's 8-inch sibling), but you get what you pay for. Aside from the tablet’s stellar battery life, every other aspect of the Yoga Tablet 10 is a huge let down. Although the tablet may seem tempting to shoppers on a budget, you’re honestly better off saving your money for a more premium tablet that offers a better overall experience.

I was genuinely surprised (in a good way) by the Lenovo Yoga Tablet design and overall philosophy, and at the same time, I’m pleased to see that instead of trying to go head-to-head against Nexus 7 Lenovo carved a space for its Android tablet. To make a long story short, Lenovo brings the ultimate tablet battery life, at the expense of performance.

I'll give Lenovo credit here: The Yoga Tablet is a well-built, attractive, and affordable 10-inch tablet. But where it matters most, the Yoga Tablet still lacks any truly compelling aspect to elevate it above the competition. The display is good, but not great. The performance is good, but not great. The software is, well, just not great. The Yoga Tablet is a good tablet at a good price. But unfortunately for Lenovo, there are too many great tablets at a great price, like the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" for $60 more ($379) or a smaller screen tablet like the Nexus 7 for $229.

Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 10 definitely tried to be different and in some way it succeeds but ultimately it is undone by some budget class features. The tablet is designed to be affordable and it does achieve this compared to other 10-inch tablets. The kickstand and long battery life are its real stand out features although the odd shape can take a while to get used to or carry around.

Lenovo Yoga 10: Mediocre tech, yes, but beautifully fondleable
Source: Reg Hardware English
In line with its asking price, the Yoga 10 has a mediocre screen resolution and a mid-range chipset, but it still does everything you are likely to want a tablet to do and with a decent lick of speed. What separates it from the herd is the rather clever form-factor, which pays dividends should you wish to pop it on a desk or hold it in your hand. If you plan on using your tablet primarily for reading books, watching videos or video chatting then the stand-me-up and sit-you-down stand options and ergonomic bulge are well worth having.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet series has been getting much attention as of late. The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is the 8 inch model of the series. It has a resolution of 1280 by 800, which is quite good for a screen of its size. The LCD touchscreen comes with 16M colors providing vivid and clear picture quality. It features a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and 1 GB RAM and runs Android Jelly Bean OS. So, lags do not happen frequently. The internal hard disk space is up to 64 GB and a microSD card for external storage is available.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 supports standard 802.11 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. Furthermore, the device comes with 3G networking, but unfortunately does not support 4G LTE. Like most tablets, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet also has one microUSB port. The battery capacity of this tablet is 6000 mAh, which is pretty good for a tablet. It is innovative, that the big battery is hidden a cylinder at the back of the tablet, which is also used for positioning the device.

In conclusion, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is one of the more unique tablets out there today, which can stand upright on a desk. The below average hardware specifications are made up for with style and functionality. Besides, the tablet works fine for normal usage like browsing the Internet or reading emails. It is pretty decent value for money considering its rather cheap price tag.

Stamina and stability. Both are quite the virtues of the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8, thanks to its large 6000 mAh battery and the integrated kickstand. But what about the rest of its ingredients? While both the bright 8-inch IPS display and the unusual shape make for great eye-catchers, we will have to see whether the MediaTek MT8389 SoC with 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space suffice to remain competitive in the price segment below 300 Euros (~$412).

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is totally original in terms of looks, and if that's what matters most to you, you won't have any problem with it. If you like the idea of a tablet that can stand upright on a desk on its own, there's really nothing else like it. It's good for most ordinary tasks, some light gaming, reading, and all your Web surfing needs. If looks are more important to you than gaming performance, you should probably give this tablet a chance. Just don't expect too much of it, and you'll be happy.

Google Nexus 7 vs LG G Pad 8.3 vs Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 review: What's the best small and cheap Android tablet?
Source: PC Advisor English
Despite being the oldest tablet here, the Nexus 7 remains our top-pick. It's the best all-rounder but the other two contenders are still worth a shout. The G Pad feels the best and has some extra software features which are really handy. Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 8 is cheap, good looking and has a great design – just be prepared for lower grade hardware and performance if you opt for this one.

Source: TechHive.com English
With a retail price $20 north of Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX, the Yoga is a tough sell and doesn’t do enough to warrant its higher price. The long-lasting battery is the tablet’s biggest strength, but with everything else being so underwhelming it’s basically irrelevant. Stay away from this one and spend your hard-earned money elsewhere.

If you're sold on Lenovo's "multi-mode" concept, the Yoga Tablet 8 is the Yoga you're looking for. Its display is sharper and the unique design makes for a more dramatic difference in how light the tablet feels in your hand. But the Yoga Tablet 8 isn't as good of a bargain as its 10-inch sibling, costing more than superlative tablets like the $229 Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX 7"$229.00 at Amazon.

80% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 review: An affordable Android tablet with a great design but mediocre specs
Source: PC Advisor English
The design of the tablet is the main selling point, partly because it's something a bit different and partly since the specs aren't anything special. The Yoga Tablet earns the first part of its name by being 'multi-mode' this means the tablet can be used in various different positions. Like any tablet you can hold the Yoga in portrait or landscape. That's called 'hold mode' but in portrait it's much easier to hold that others because the vast majority of the weight is on one side and therefore in your hand. Its svelte shape also makes it look sleek and desirable.

Thanks to a better screen, noticeably greater performance and a comfortable, modern, and recognizable body, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ holds up against more expensive, premium devices.

We're certainly pleased to see that Lenovo has improved the display and processor of the Yoga Tablet 10 with the new HD+ model, without pushing up the price tag too much or putting a strain on the battery. The camera boost and design tweaks are a nice bonus, too. We're looking forward to putting the tablet through some further testing to find out just how much faster it is, and provide our final verdict for the device.

Source: Techradar English
We really love the screen on this new Lenovo Yoga, but the fact is the resolution still lags behind some other larger-screened tablets such as the iPad Air. The difference is price - this tablet is significantly cheaper than many competitors and is still quite powerful. Whether you plump for it could come down to the physical design. Do you want the built-in stand? If the answer is yes, then this makes for a great Android alternative to Microsoft's Surface.

Lenovo has clearly listened to the criticisms of its first Yoga tablet and seems to have resolved many of the issues holding it back. In particular I am pleasantly surprised by quite how much better the screen is – the small $50 (UK price to be confirmed) price bump is more than worth it. On this evidence the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD Plus could be a real stand-up Android tablet.
