lenovo-laptop-convertible-yoga-3-pro-silver-laptop-mode-3

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro launched last week and has been handled by enough people now for us to get an idea of the performance of the Core M platform and the quality of the product. It’s the worlds-thinnest 2-in-1 and weighs just 1.19 KG which, for a 13.3-inch convertible is quite impressive. Lenovo have squeezed in a reasonably sized battery and there are a few other highlight features 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.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Hands-On

P1150299

The Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro has launched. It’s lighter, it runs Haswell and it’s still got a nice big battery inside. Weight is down to 1.39 Kg which isn’t incredibly light but seeing as the Yoga 13 was heavier, the Yoga 2 Pro could improve on its popularity. A very high resolution screen (3200×1800) tops the specifications. We’ve had some hands-on time. Check the video out below.

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 (40)

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.

Lenovo's New IdeaPad Yoga Ultrabook Convertible Ad Channels The Matrix, James Bond

Now that Windows 8 has hit the market, Ultrabook manufacturers want to get their devices into the spotlight. Lenovo recently launched some new ads to show off the IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook convertible. The Pursuit is a 3 minute and 30 second short action film in the style of The Matrix and James Bond. While the video might not pay off as a film, it certainly puts the IdeaPad Yoga 13 front and center.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 to run Windows RT Powered by Nvidia Tegra 3, 3G/4G Included?

lenovo ideapad yoga 11

Lenovo has made an interesting move to segment their Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 models. The Yoga 13 is an Ultrabook convertible proper while the Yoga 11 is going to be an ARM-based device that runs Windows RT. If the convertible Yoga 13 form-factor interests you, the Yoga 11 might be a desirable Ultrabook alternative for those looking for a more portable package with even longer battery life (and probably lower cost). Lenovo still hasn’t announced a release date or price for the Yoga 11 but full official specifications are now available. Photos on Lenovo’s website show what could be a micro SIM card slot for 3G/4G.
