Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

The price and release date details of the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 have been revealed, while the company has announced that the Yoga 11 will hit store shelves in December. The 13.3-inch convertible Ultrabook runs the Windows 8 platform and its sibling featuring a 11.6-inch screen takes advantage of the Windows RT OS.

The Yoga 13 is fitted with a flexible hinge that allows the screen to move around by 360 degrees, so it can be used as a tablet as well. A third generation Intel Core processor sits snugly under the hood and makes it capable of carrying multiple operations at the same time. The Windows 8-based device measures not more than 16.9mm in thickness and claims to cough up the juice for uninterrupted computing of about 8 hours. Moreover, its IPS touchscreen display is deployed with the Motion Control technology for recognizing gestures.

Apparently, the slimmest multi-mode PC, the 15.6mm thick 11.6-inch Yoga 11 is the smaller version of the Yoga 13. It is said to have a long battery life that lasts for up to 13 hours. This convertible laptop is fueled by the quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office applications.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 starts at $1099 and will be available from October 26. It will be up for pre-order through Best Buy from October 12. The Yoga 11 costs $799 and will be up for sale in December.
