A lot has changed since late last year when I first looked at the Yoga 13. That system showed that there is a market for convertible notebooks and while the Yoga 11S is essentially a slimmed down version of the original, there needs to be more to it at this point to make it a true standout device.

In review: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S (Haswell) Let's say you already own a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S with Ivy Bridge processor ; would it pay off to sell it for a new model with Haswell Core i5? The answer is: it depends. Battery life increased...

For those that are interested in the Lenovo Yoga 11S (and I'm sure many are because it's a great bit of kit) I've put together two video reviews for you. They follow-on from the full review posted here last week and, as that review did, focuses on the...

The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S in review here is a current Ultrabook, in previous generation form. The new Haswell versions are feeding-in but this Ivy Bridge version is on offer at $699 so it makes an attractive hybrid of great quality and mobility even...

1.3KG with 11.6-inch screen. If that's outside your target range for an ultra mobile PC, move on. If not, pay close attention because the Yoga 11S is an interesting touch-convertible with a Core i3 CPU that turns in some excellent all-round performance...

When Lenovo released the IdeaPad Yoga 13 last year, there was plenty to like about the 13-inch hybrid laptop. It had decent battery life, it came with a fantastic touchpad, and the 360-degree hinge mechanism that let you flip the laptop into a tablet was...

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S occupies an important middle ground between the larger-sized Yoga 13 (which is simply too cumbersome to serve as a reasonable tablet for many people) and the ARM-powered Yoga 11 (which, in spite of its superior battery life...

Lenovo’s Yoga 11S is an absolute joy to use. With a $999 price tag, however, it’s hard to overlook the laptop’s ho-hum performance and medicore battery life. If Lenovo ever decides to update the Yoga 11S with one of Intel’s power-sipping fourth-generation Core processors, the result could be convertible perfection.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11s is pretty much everything we wanted the Yoga 11 RT to be, so it's pretty much a no brainer to shell out the extra cash for the Yoga 11S over the RT model. It's just a shame that Lenovo hasn't fixed the slippery trackpad on...

Lenovo's IdeaPad series soldiers on with this latest version of the Yoga, an Ultrabook designed to appeal to users who want both conventional notebook and tablet form factors in one package. The Yoga 11S doesn't have quite as many convolutions as, say,...

As an innovative next-generation form factor, the Lenovo Yoga 11S is a cool experiment and shows potential. As a usable laptop and convertible tablet, the Yoga 11S isn't quite all there yet. It is usable, yes, and innovative, true enough, but the 11S...

As a laptop, the Yoga 11S has lots to offer. It's a nice little machine that has impressed us in general use. There are some interesting things to note. For a start, we tested the Core i3 version of the machine, which doesn't seem to appear on...

If you're in the market for a Windows 8 tablet or laptop you'd be remiss to not check out the Lenovo Yoga 11S. While it currently lacks a Haswell option, it's still plenty fast enough for whatever you want to do, with the exception of hardcore PC...

If you’re looking for both an ultrabook and a tablet, but don’t want too many devices kicking around, the IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a great solution. It’s powerful and fully featured, with great flexibility. There are better tablets and ultrabooks, but this is as good as we’ve seen in a hybrid.
