Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review
Limited to snapping self-portraits and the occasional video-chatting session, there’s nothing great to say about the quality of its 1-megapixel camera. Obviously, it serves its purpose in those aforementioned tasks, but it also has the ability to shoot 720p videos as well – though, its quality isn’t something worth bragging about.
Consistency is what makes Microsoft’s platform unique, so there are few differences with the core experience. So much so that the music player on the Yoga 11 is the same identical one used by all the other Windows RT tablets out there. Armed with left and right speakers, its output is on the weak side, but at least there’s no crackling or distortion at the loudest volume setting.
For some reason, it seems as though these NVIDIA Tegra 3 Windows RT devices handles 1080p video playback a lot better than some Intel Atom-based Windows 8 tablets. Not only does the Yoga 11 support the major video codecs, but it handsomely plays 1080p videos with minimal slowdown.

My girlfriend has this and loves it. Loves the form factor, mostly using as a touchscreen laptop and occasionally a tablet. RT has been fine for her, she predominantly uses the browser and loves the built in office rt. As review says the screen resolution could be better, but isn't bad. And since she doesn't have a need for older or "traditional" windows programs Win RT is fine. Power users should wait for the Yoga 11s due out in June with full Windows 8.
