Lenovo is looking to capitalize early and often with the do-it-all Yoga 13. Priced from $999, this system was one of the first portable systems to launch alongside Windows 8. Without jumping right to the conclusion from the get-go, I will let you know that it's a very capable all-around system that doesn't compromise on that it is first and foremost: a notebook.

Never before has a hinge seemed like such a big deal, but Windows 8 has done some strange things to laptop manufacturers. While the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 might look like most other laptops, it is actually a lithe, excitingly hinged transforming...

Reading the storm of online criticism, Windows 8 is quite annoying to anyone who has used any Windows OS between Windows 95 and Windows 7. But of course, perhaps all this annoyance is due to the fact that Windows 8 is meant to be an operating system...

The Lenovo Yoga 13 is a great touchscreen Ultrabook, but its tablet function falls flat due to the unwieldy size and heft, making it more party trick than useful talent. On the other hand, its propped up tent option more than makes up for it, and...

The Yoga 13 is as much a visual treat as it is an excellently designed laptop. We love the way the screen can be positioned through 360 degrees, but the overall expense and exposed keyboard in the tablet-like position are two standout issues. Still,...
