Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Notebook Review

Sascha Mölck, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Andreas Osthoff), 03/25/2015

Quiet and cool. Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 11e is designed for schools, which means the device is pretty sturdy. Such a notebook should have long battery runtimes – but the Yoga 11e is only average in this category.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is the Windows version of the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook that we already reviewed, and both devices use the same Bay Trail processor. Our review will show whether the Windows version can leave a better impression than the Chromebook.

Rivals for the Yoga 11e would be the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L10-B-101 and the HP Stream 11 X360, for example. Those two devices are 11.6-inch convertibles as well. But tablets like the Asus Transformer Book T200TA and netbooks like the Acer TravelMate B115 or the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145, respectively, are also competitors for our review unit.

The two tested models of the ThinkPad Yoga 11e have a similar construction, so we won't cover the sections Case, Connectivity, Input Devices and Speakers in this review. The corresponding information can be found in the review of the ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook.

Case & Connectivity

The two ThinkPad Yoga 11e models use the same chassis, but there is one small difference in respect of the port variety: The Windows version has an additional Gigabit-Ethernet port, while the Chromebook version did not have an Ethernet port at all.

Display

Lenovo equipped the Yoga 11e with a glossy 11.6-inch display, which has a native resolution of 1366x768 pixels. The brightness is quite decent with 285.1 cd/m². We measured a similar value for the display of the Chromebook sibling (277.8 cd/m²), but the Chromebook (1260:1; 0.23 cd/m²) does have an advantage over the Windows model (713:1; 0.4 cd/m²) in respect of the contrast and the black value.

Lenovo equipped the Yoga 11e with an IPS display, which means the display content is visible from every position. The convertible can be used outdoors, but you should favor a place in the shade or use it on cloudy days. The glossy screen surface will prevent use under direct sunlight.

Performance

Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 11e is an 11.6-inch convertible that provides sufficient performance for office and web applications. Our review unit is available for around 550 Euros (~$603), but Lenovo offers other versions as well: The device is also available as a Chromebook or normal netbook (without 360-degree display hinge), respectively.

Processor

The heart of the Yoga 11e is an Intel Celeron N2930 (Bay Trail) quad-core processor. The CPU runs with a nominal clock of 1.83 GHz, which can be raised up to 2.16 GHz via Turbo Boost. The Turbo can be used on mains as well as battery power: The CPU tests of the Cinebench benchmarks were always executed with 2.16 GHz.

System Performance

We did not have any problems with the system. The notebook runs smoothly and without hiccups. The PCMark results are on the expected level and correspond with the performance of the CPU. It would be possible to increase the system performance with a second memory module or the replacement of the hard drive with an SSD.

Storage Devices

Lenovo equipped the Yoga 11e with a hard drive from Toshiba that has a capacity of 500 GB and runs with 7,200 revolutions per minute. It is pretty rare that we review drives with this speed, and the transfer rates are correspondingly very good: It is around 25% faster than a 5,400 rpm hard drive on average.

Graphics

The graphics core of the Yoga 11e has the designation HD Graphics. It supports DirectX 11 and runs with up to 854 MHz. The 3DMark results correspond with the performance of the GPU, which means it is at the bottom of the performance ranking. Our comparison chart shows that comparable graphics cores from AMD are significantly faster.

Gaming Performance

You should not even think about playing modern 3D titles like Assassin's Creed Unity on the hardware of the Lenovo notebook. Smooth frame rates are only possible in a couple of games – with reduced resolutions and quality settings. The situation changes when you want to play titles from the Windows Store. They are usually no problem because they were designed for weak hardware in the first place.

Emissions & Energy Management

System Noise

The fan is usually deactivated while idling. Still, the device is not silent because you can clearly hear the murmur of the hard drive. Replacing the hard drive with an SSD would solve this issue. The fan does not have to work very hard under load; even low rpm-levels ensure a sufficient cooling of the hardware. We can measure a system noise of just 34.1 dB(A) during our stress test, which means the Yoga 11e is on par with its Chromebook sibling in respect of the noise.

Our stress test (Prime95 and FurMark for at least one hour) shows the same behavior for the Yoga 11e on mains as well as battery power. The processor can maintain its maximum Turbo clock (2.166 GHz), while the GPU runs with 820 MHz. The device does not really get warm; we could not measure more than 40 °C at any measuring spot, even during our stress test. The result of the Yoga 11e is once again similar to its Chromebook sibling.

(±) The average temperature of the palmrest area of similar devices was 29.1 °C / 84.4 F (-1.1 °C / -2 F).

Power Consumption

The power consumption of the Yoga 11e is on a normal level for this hardware platform in all scenarios. We were able to measure a consumption of 17.8 Watts during the stress test, which is also the maximum value since both the CPU and GPU run with their maximum clocks.

Battery Runtime

Our realistic WLAN test opens websites automatically every 40 seconds. The power plan "Balanced" is active and we adjust the display brightness to around 150 nits. The Yoga 11e manages a runtime of 4:57 hours, which is clearly worse than the Chromebook sibling (6:29 h). This is, however, not really surprising: Chromebooks usually have a lower power consumption compared to their Windows counterparts in our experience, which means they manage longer runtimes. Another factor that should not be forgotten: The Yoga 11e uses a conventional 2.5-inch hard drive, while the Chromebook is equipped with eMMC-storage that is much more frugal. But there is an additional reason in this case: We introduced a new WLAN test a couple of weeks ago, so the results of the two Yoga models are not really comparable.

Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 11e is an 11.6-inch convertible that is primarily designed for schools, which means the construction is correspondingly very sturdy. The Bay Trail Celeron processor is powerful enough for office and web applications. The Yoga 11e is always quiet and does not really warm up at all. You also get good input devices, and a large maintenance hatch at the bottom means the device is easy to maintain and upgrade. We also like the display; Lenovo integrates an IPS display with good values for the brightness and the contrast. Still: Both the brightness and the contrast could be higher for such a device. All the mentioned characteristics mean the convertible is not only interesting for the education sector but also for users that need an 11.6-inch convertible for the road. 

However, the problem is the mobility: The ThinkPad manages a runtime of 4:57 hours in our realistic WLAN test, so it neither lasts a full school day nor a business day.

This is an average result for an 11.6-inch notebook, but we already reviewed 11.6-inch devices with much longer runtimes. The device is also not really inexpensive with a price of 550 Euros (~$603). Rivals like the HP Stream 11 x360 and the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L10-B-101 are around 200 Euros (~$219) less expensive. However, both devices are only equipped with TN displays with limited viewing angles in return.

If you are looking for an enduring 11.6-inch device and do not require a touchscreen and/or a 360-degree display hinge, then you get much cheaper and more enduring alternatives with notebooks like the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E145 and the Acer TravelMate B115.

I grew up with computers and modern consumer electronics. I am interested in the technology since I had my first computer, a Commodore C64, and started building my own PCs after that. My focus here at Notebookcheck is the business segment including mobile workstations, but I also like to test new mobile devices. It is always a great experience to review and compare new products. My free time is filled with a lot of sports, in the summer mainly on my bike.
