IdeaPad Yoga 11S: A Smaller & Comparable Yoga 13 Hybrid

Lisa Gade over at MobileTechReview has just posted a video review of the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Convertible Ultrabook. This device, for some, is something that’s been long overdue. The reason is because its predecessor was somewhat lacking. The IdeaPad Yoga 11 was powered by a Tegra-based Windows RT OS. This updated version runs on a full Windows 8 OS.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is the baby brother to the extremely popular Yoga 13. Don’t confuse the Yoga 11S with the Windows RT Yoga 11 released in the fall of 2013. The 11S is a full Intel Core convertible Ultrabook running Windows 8 64 bit, just like the Yoga 13. We first saw the Yoga 11S when we met with Lenovo at CES in January 2013, and now the Ultrabook is finally shipping. Is it still cool? Let’s see.

IdeaPad Yoga 11 Finally Gets Full Windows 8 Experience

To say that the IdeaPad Yoga 11 was a disappointment is an understatement. We saw how popular the IdeaPad Yoga 13 was, so why did its little brother do so poorly? The answer: Windows RT. Who upon hearing that a laptop running on a limited Windows edition would still want it? Why couldn’t Lenovo have simply configured the Yoga 11 like Yoga 13 but into a smaller chassis?

The wait is over, as many of us having been eagerly anticipating the Yoga 11S. This device remedies the primary complaint about the Yoga 11 and installs a full copy of Windows 8 onto the system. Now this convertible ultrabooks is getting closer to what’s usable.

The IdeaPad Yoga 11s Coming This Summer

Lenovo fans got a glimpse of what’s to come in the IdeaPad Yoga family at CES 2013 with the IdeaPad Yoga 11s. This convertible ultrabook holds a lot of promise. Not only is it small and convenient to use, it also improves on its predecessor the Yoga 11 through an upgrade in the operating system to a full Windows 8 install. This means users will be able to run any Windows legacy application, as opposed to being restricted with the Windows RT version. The IdeaPad Yoga 11s should be available by this summer around June.

Differences Between Yoga 11 & Yoga 11s

Have you heard?  Lenovo’s coming out with another IdeaPad Yoga ultrabook.  This time it will be the Yoga 11s, a slight variation of the Yoga 11 which is currently available right now.  The Yoga 11s should be available in the next month or two.  If you’re wondering what the differences between these two different but similar systems, check out the article below.  The reading briefly highlights what consumers can expect.  A short clip is found below.

The main difference between the current 11-inch Yoga and the new version is in the processor. The existing Yoga 11 uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and runs Windows RT. This special version of Microsoft’s operating system is built for ARM processors (like the Tegra 3) that are commonly found in mobile devices. On the other hand, the new Yoga 11S uses an Intel Core-i processor that’s standard among Ultrabooks, and similar to the ones found in Lenovo’s 13-inch Yoga.
