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.
The Yoga 13 features a third generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000 and a 128GB solid state drive. True to its name, the Yoga 13 utilizes a 13.3-inch HD+ LED Multitouch display operating at 1,600 x 900 resolution.
