Friday, May 6, 2011
There are many things to love about the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11. This laptop has a very versatile design. It's built similarly to a tablet, yet it comes with a keyboard. You can flip it around and use it however you wish.
This 11-inch convertible has a really long battery life. You can expect it to last for several hours per charge. You can take it with you everywhere you go since it's practically weightless at2.8 pounds. If you've seen the Yoga 13, you can consider this model to be its little brother.
One of the best things about this model is that the screen can be flipped around 360-degrees. If you want to use it as a touchscreen tablet, you can fold it up so that the keyboard doesn't get in the way. Whenever you do want to use the keyboard, you can simply unfold the tablet.
The screen is a 5-point multi-touch display with a resolution of 1366x768. It's a bright screen that offers a view from just about any angle. The multi-touch gestures are highly intuitive. It's easy to zoom into pages, open and close programs, edit documents, etc. If you prefer keyboards, you will find that this chiclet-style keyboard is very comfortable to type on.

Processor: up to NVIDIA Tegra 3

The tablet runs Windows RT. If you haven't used this version of Windows yet, you will find that it is easy to learn. It's essentially the same as Windows 8, except that it has been configured for thinner, lighter devices such as the Yoga 11.
While you can run many programs on this tablet, you obviously won't be able to run everything on it. It's not a full PC, after all. It's smaller than a standard laptop and less powerful than a desktop. That said, it still offers goo performance and speed for its size. Its battery life, which exceeds the battery life of an iPod Touch or iPhone, is one of the main reasons people choose this touchpad. It's the perfect mobile companion for anyone who wants to stay online wherever they go.
If you go with the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 2 GB of RAM, you should be able to stream some videos on the device.
