CES 2012 | Hands-on video with Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga

The 13.3-inch IdeaPad Yoga can flip its screen 360 degrees for unique features and touchscreen usability, expected to late this year for $1199

There are literally countless numbers of Ultrabooks at this year’s CES 2012, but only one has the ability to fold its screen beyond 180 degrees.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga may look like an ultrathin notebook at first glance, but as one can see from the video below, the device can quickly convert into a 10-finger touchscreen tablet. The base portion of the notebook can act as a stand or a “tent” as well. Lenovo claims it to be the “world’s first multimode hinge design”. Talk about a transformer!

The 13.3-inch notebook includes an aluminum shell and an impressive IPS 16:9 display, all at under 17mm (0.67 inches) thick and just 3.1 pounds (1.3kg). The notebook will also be sporting Windows 8 with Intel Core CPU options, up to 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. By the time it hits retail, the final product is expected to carry a G-sensor as well for automatic display switching. We’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled on the IdeaPad Yoga when it launches later this year for $1199.
