Closer look at the Lenovo IdeaPad YOGA convertible ultrabook
Lenovo is introducing a new laptop/tablet hybrid called the IdeaPad YOGA. It gets its name from its flexible design. The hinge that holds the screen to the based of the laptop allows the screen to rotate back nearly 360 degrees so that you can close the laptop with the screen face down, or face up.
When the screen is face up, you can use the YOGA as a tablet. You can also go just part of the way and prop up the touchscreen display like a tent or stand.
The IdeaPad YOGA is designed to run Windows 8, nd Lenovo says it will launch at the same time as Microsoft’s next-generation operating system.
The IdeaPad YOGA has a 13.3 inch, 1600 x 900 pixel display an Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage on a solid state.
The laptop measures just 0.67 inches thick and weighs 3.1 pounds, putting it squarely in ultrabook territory — although with an expected starting price of around $1199, the YOGA is definitely at the high end of the ultrabook scale.
