Hands-on with Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga Video Transcript
I'm Dan Ackerman and we are taking a look at the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga. That's right. This is a ThinkPad branded version of the popular Yoga laptop which was previously part of Lenovo's consumer IdeaPad line. This professional version, the ThinkPad version has a 12.5-inch screen as opposed to a larger 13-inch screen in the consumer version, but the real important thing here is when you fold the screen all the way back as one does on a Yoga, the keyboard actually disappears into this system itself. It's a little bit of an optical illusion. It's not that the keys recede into the base of the laptop. It's that keyboard tray kind of comes out a little bit and covers up the keys and locks them into place, but the effect is largely the same. You then had a tablet that has a screen in one side and a fairly smooth bottom on the other side. It does not have the keys even deactivated sticking out as you find on the original version of the Yoga. I think that's just fantastic and I hope that Lenovo answers to all the different Yoga models before too long. I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the new Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga.
Lenovo's laptop-tablet Windows 8 hybrid takes a simple approach, but is a clever hinge enough?
Join Dan Ackerman as he takes a look at the flexible Lenovo Ideapad Yoga.
Lenovo's thin 13-inch ThinkPad X1 is high on design and full of sleek features, including a backlit keyboard.
The ThinkPad x100e is essentially the ThinkPad Netbook users have been dreaming of, with one of the best keyboards we've ever tested: unfortunately, its performance, while better than Atom Netbooks, comes at the price of shorter battery life.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X300 breaks new ground by packing a broad display, full-size keyboard, and nearly every feature a mobile user needs into a sleek, lightweight case.
The ThinkPad T60 delivers a sturdy design, a complete range of network connectivity, top-shelf performance, long battery life, and just enough ports for the typical business user.
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).
This sequel gets thinner, lighter, and adds an ultra-high-res screen
Lenovo's Windows RT tablet comes attached to a keyboard that can easily make itself scarce.
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.
