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.
