The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga is a lovely rather-bendy converting notebook-to-tablet that we saw back at CES 2012 – both an 11-inch and a 13-inch version of this device are appearing today with assurances for launch side two new guns in the industry as well. Lenovo is also showing off the IdeaTab Lynx and the ThinkPad Twist, two more twisters and turners for the next generation of PC power with Windows 8, Windows RT, and more!
The IdeaPad Yoga is coming in two iterations, one of them with a 13.3-inch display, the other with an 11.6-inch display, both of them with great battery life and the ability to move 360 degrees and fold from laptop to tablet. The 13 model has Dolby Home Theater, IPS display technology, and a multi-touch screen so you can make full use of Windows 8! The Yoga 11 is just 15.6 mm thin and is made to balance power and mobility – so they say! You’ve got an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor inside and Windows RT for a full tablet experience.
The IdeaTab Lynx is a device that’s made for Windows 8 action in full-on tablet mode. You’ve got an 11.6-inch display with Dolby Home Theater as well as connectivity with printers, hard drives, and more with a full sized USB port via its base. The base of this device will also help to type out your plans for the future as it presents a full keyboard bringing on a full-function PC experience. Microsoft Word is aboard, as is 16 hours of battery life (provided you use the base, of course.)
The ThinkPad Twist is made specifically for Small Business Computing and has a 12.5-inch display to get it done. You can use this device as a fully functional Ultrabook or just twist the display and push it back down for a lovely next-level tablet. The ThinkPad Twist works with a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to Windows 8 Pro, and optional 3G mobile data connectivity. Inside you’ll also have up to 500GB of storage or 128 GB SSD. The Twist also works with a 350nit HD display – bright as heck – and mini-HDMI and DisplayPort jack for HD video on your 3rd party gigantic displays.
The IdeaPad Yoga 13 will be available starting on October 12 at Best Buy stores around the country for PRE-ORDER, after which the device will be in-store starting on the 26th of the month for $1,099 MSRP. The IdeaPad Yoga 11 will be available starting in December for MSRP $799.
