Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

By on July 18, 2013, 1:52 AM

Late last year we took a look at the Lenovo Yoga 13 Ultrabook, one of the first Windows 8 convertibles to hit the scene. The system performed decently well in our testing and while it was cool to use the machine as an oversized tablet with Windows 8 touch capabilities, the size and especially the weight (3.4 pounds) translated into an experience that wasn’t terribly practical.

To that end, Lenovo's latest entrant in the hybrid marketplace looks to address some of these issues. The Lenovo Yoga 11S, described on the company’s website as a groundbreaking multimedia mini Ultrabook, measures just 11.6-inches and is a bit lighter (although not by much) at 3.08 pounds. What it lacks in size compared to the larger Yoga 13, however, is reflected in the price tag as it starts at just $749.99 – a full $150 cheaper than the starting price of the larger system when we reviewed it.

Meh, I agree, if they had put a Haswell chip, it might have been an overall better buy because it would have had a lot better battery life. My Microsoft Surface Pro Costs about the same and while the SSD is smaller, the Processor is faster and has a 1080p screen and better battery life to boot. Kinda seem under powered to me in my opinion at that price point.

I think you should specify OS X 10.8 in the MBA 2012 specs.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who cares about battery life around here...
