Lenovo Announces Yoga 11S, Packs Intel CPU, Windows 8


Lenovo has announced a revamp of its 11-inch IdeaPad Yoga with the Yoga 11S, complete with Intel processors and Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system.

The Yoga 11S, which is scheduled for a June launch, will be available in a number of variants, with prices starting from $799. That price will offer consumers an Intel Core i3 processor, 4 GB of memory and 128 GB of solid state storage.

Other models boast a Core i7 processor, with the Yoga 11S also supporting up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD. The standard display will measure at 11.6-inches, accompanied by a 1366 x 768 resolution touchscreen. An option for a 1600 x 900 resolution display will be available, too.

Lenovo pointed towards the flagship feature in the form of the keyboard, which can rotate 360 degrees for a traditional laptop to a full touchscreen tablet. The company claims the notebook will offer a 6-hour battery life and it'll weight under 3 pounds.

    Played with Yoga 13" over the holiday weekend, it was one of the best windows 8 tablet, period. Asus Taichi, and offerings from other OEMs are great in theory, but sucks in reality. I can totally see myself using Yoga.
