Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 has stolen the market over the past few months. It comes with a 11-inch display. This notebook runs on NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor paired with Microsoft’s Windows RT and a 5-point multi-touch display. Just like the name indicates Yoga 11 is super flexible. You can use it in traditional clamshell mode (keyboard in front, screen at a 90- or near-90-degree angle), or you can bend the screen 360 degrees around the hinge.
Though its keyboard doesn’t detach, still you can flip the entire screen around 360 degrees to obtain a slate-like experience. Yoga 11 comes with a silver-gray rubbery finish, black, stylish keyboard, and a thick bezel surrounding its smooth glass touchscreen. You will definitely fell in love with the tablet like experience which you get for a laptop like this. Its 11.6-inch touchscreen has a resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels and is very user-friendly.It also comes with LED Backlit technology and 350 nits of brightness.
The main weakness of this machine is that it just comes with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is quite less in this generation of computing. The speakers are also little quiet, two speakers are hidden in the fan vents on the rear of the machine. Yoga 11 has got only two USB ports which is not enough.
The Yoga 11 comes with a 64GB SSD, which boots and loads apps quickly. There is 43 GB free space out of 52.5 GB. The remaining space is occupied by the operating system and recovery partition. There aren’t a lot of extra pre-loaded programs, just rara.com (music), Evernote Touch, and eBay.
This device gets a battery life of five or five and a half hours depending on the application that you use. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a good Windows RT convertible to have around if you are looking for a tablet-like experience, but it definitely requires a keyboard.
Yoga 11 is not thin enough (0.61 inches) or light enough (2.8 pounds) to justify its tablet OS, and Windows RT, unlike its big brother (which was too heavy to be a tablet, but powerful and usable enough to be a laptop), the Yoga 11 is stuck somewhere in the middle. It has a unique, easy-to-use design and a great keyboard. If you are planning to buy a Windows 8 laptop, then it is definitely a good option now. This is a laptop with a great mix of tablet functionality.
