Hands-on with the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga Video Transcript
I'm Dan Ackerman here at CES 2012. What I've got in my hands is the idea pad Yoga from Lenovo. And you can see this looks like a regular 13 inch laptop ,except you take the lid. You flip it back around itself and now it's kind of like a tablet and I know you're saying we've seen convertible tablet before. Those (??) have kind of centered in that's (??) around and (??) down. That's kind of avoid the weakness here by having the hinge on either side here. It's actually a lot sturdier and what the Yoga does is, it deactivates the keyboard. So once it's (??) over the tablet form, the keyboard is not gonna work. You can just use the onscreen keyboard and it deactivates the touch pad and it's actually got a little bit of a leaded cover right here so you can put it down on your desk. It's not gonna damage it. And it gives you from the front something that looks like a tablet and you can fold it and kind of a (??)mode if you like that or you can tilt to that backwards like this. Or of course if you're like, you can just use it as a traditional laptop. I think that help people sort of adapt to sort of a tablet environment by saying it's a product you can also just use like a regular laptop. You're gonna see this later in 2012. I think probably around 1399 for the 13-inch version hopefully with Windows 8 and hopefully with the latest generation of Intel processors. At CES, (??) I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Lenovo Idea Pad Yoga.
CNET editor Dan Ackerman shows off the latest version of the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga tablet at CES 2013.
A sharp-looking mainstream laptop with decent graphics and some configuration flexibility, the IdeaPad Y570 is a solid alternative to some of the better-known consumer laptop brands.
The Yoga's 13-inch screen can flip all the way around and fold flat on the back, turning the laptop into a tablet. Or, it can stand up on its front edges like a tent (called Tent mode). It can also be used with the keyboard side down and the screen bent back, becoming almost like a tiny tabletop touch-screen all-in-one (Stand mode).
The IdeaPad Y480 gets you Lenovo's excellent construction quality and ergonomic design without having a "business" laptop, but some more configuration flexibility would be appreciated.
Currently only available in China, Donald Bell takes a look at the Ideapad K900 from Lenovo.
A blessing or a curse? The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 tablet includes a built-in keyboard that never detaches. Where I'm from we call that a laptop.
One of only a handful of 3D laptops, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560d skips active shutter glasses for an inferior technology, but keeps the A-list price.
Online media consumers who want a portable laptop with high style and plenty of screen real estate should give the Y650 a look.
If you're looking for a comfortable Netbook with a 12-inch screen, theLenovo IdeaPad S12 feels comfortable and light--but it's no ultra-lowvoltage laptop.
The Lenovo IdeaPad U260 is a sleekly designed, beautifully constructed 12-inch ultraportable--it's just a shame its world-class looks are undermined by an underperforming battery.
