Lenovo Yoga 11 2 at CES? Hints in FCC Docs.

Yoga 11 2 laptop

We’ve just reviewed the Lenovo Yoga 11S and found it to be an exciting and yet productive sub-notebook with usage modes that go way beyond what a standard clamshell can achieve. The Haswell update is shipping too so you can now expect longer battery life but what’s really needed is a re-design around that platform in order to shave some weight off and make it more usable as a tablet. There are hints that it’s already happened.

Lenovo Yoga 11S (Core i3, $699 version) Video Review

Lenovo-Yoga-11S

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.

While the i3 version is good enough for daily duties (mostly thanks to a good, fast SSD,) fast enough to do some 1080p video editing and great value at $699, I am personally more interested in a Haswell version of a Core i5 or i7 as a total desktop replacement and go-anywhere all-in-one. The ergonomics of this subnotebook/ultrabook/convertible are second to none and the Lenovo Yoga 11S appeals to both the productive and social side of my requirements. Yours too?

Lenovo Yoga 11S Review (Ivy Bridge, Core i3, Low-Cost Version)

Lenovo Yoga 11S (23)

The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S in review here is a current Ultrabook, in previous generation form. The new Haswell versions are feeding-in but this Ivy Bridge version is on offer at $699 so it makes an attractive hybrid of great quality and mobility even more interesting.  Ben reviewed the Core i7 version in July but we have the Core i3 version with 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 11.6-inch version here now. It’s mostly a great experience but there are, as always,  considerations. Read on to see if the Lenovo Yoga 11S fits your requirements and check out the Core i7 vs Core i3 Yoga 11S comparison.

DSC_0260

The Lenovo Yoga 11S Ultrabook convertible is an 11.6-inch version of the Yoga 13, with one important difference — it’s running an Ivy Bridge ‘1.5’ processor, the Intel Core i7-3689Y. This new processor was created by Intel to meet the demand for small Windows tablets ahead of the Haswell launch. We’ve got the Yoga 11S on hand and will be putting it through the paces over the next few weeks. For now we’ve got our initial impressions and photos for your perusal.

Lenovo Yoga 11s Available for Pre-Order in Europe

The Lenovo Yoga 11S appeared for pre-order in the US a few days ago and you can now pre-order three 11s models in Europe.

German retailer Notbooksbiliiger.de have revealed two Lenovo 11s models along with a few more specs, pricing and pre-order. Starting at €899 with a Core i3 and going up to a Core i5 with 256GB and 8GB RAM for €1199. In the USA the Core i5 (4Gb/128GB) model is $799 so clearly the EU prices have been set too high. Don’t be tempted at that price.

Confirmed: Lenovo Yoga 11s uses New Low-Power Core i3 at 1.4Ghz (Plus Video Hands-On)

yoga11s cpu

Now we know why Lenovo didn’t release an 11” Yoga with Core inside…they were waiting for cooler CPUs which confirms our suspicions yesterday.

The new Lenovo Yoga 11S seen at CES yesterday has been confirmed to have a Core i3-3229Y CPU running at 1.4Ghz. That’s the same clock and CPU power as the early Core i3 Sandy Bridge Ultrabooks in 2011 and just about half of the max performance you can get out of a Core i5 which can Turbo for short periods to 2.7/2.8Ghz.
