Here comes a new member in Lenovo’s flip and fold IdeaPad Yoga line. Named IdeaPad Yoga 11S, some of you may find the name familiar. Not just the name, the Yoga 11S also looks like the Yoga 11 that was announced last October. Instead of ARM-based Tegra 3 processor on the Yoga 11, the 11S packs Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor, making it a x86 system capable of running full Windows 8 instead of Windows RT.
Featuring the same design as other Yogas, the Yoga 11S can work like a tradition laptop, or you can flip the screen all the way round and use it as a tablet. You may also convert it into stand or tent mode for space-saving way to watch movies. The convertible Ultrabook/tablet hybrid is powered by up to Intel’s 3rd gen Core i7 Ivy Bridge (up to Core i5 in the US) processor with integrated graphics, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD storage.
The 11.6-inch IPS touchscreen of the flipping IdeaPad has 1366×768 resolution and 10 finger multitouch. It features Dolby Home Theatre audio and supports WiFi and Bluetooth. The tablet also sports a webcam and features Motion Control that allows users swipe their hand in front of the webcam to flip through photos, videos and other files.
The IdeaPad Yoga 11S features the same rubber painting and soft-touch finish as the Yoga 13, and will come in Silver Grey and Clementine Orange. Lenovo is going to release the laptop/tablet hybrid in June starting at $799.
