Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review
After using the Lenovo IdeaPad extensively, we forget that we’re dealing with a Windows RT device here. Hiding away a 4-cell battery in its skinny chassis, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is able to effectively give us more than a solid day of normal usage with a fully charged battery. To tell you the truth, even power users will be impressed by its longevity!


On the average right now, you can pick up the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 for approximately $600, which quite frankly, seems to be grossly expensive for a Windows RT device. However, when we add in the fact that it’s boasting an extremely usable keyboard, combined with its cool convertible aspect, the Yoga 11 is a great netbook replacement. Sure, you won’t be able to install legacy software, but if you’re looking for the basics, this will suffice for most things. Honestly people, with so much versatility packed into this netbook-like replacement, it’s certain to stand out amongst the existing crop of Windows RT devices that have been out on the market, due to its different form factor.

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.
