-I'm Dan Ackerman here at CES 2013 and we've got something that I've been waiting for. It's the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11s. Now, we've seen the Yoga 13 that's a 13-inch laptop that kind of flips around at the different positions and Lenovo had an 11-inch version of it, but with Windows RT. Now, they've got an 11-inch smaller version of that Yoga, but with full windows 8 making it a much more useful machine. And this is it right here, The IdeaPad Yoga 11s. The S means it has Windows 8. Now, like the Yoga 13, which you've probably seen a million times already, this looks like a fairly conventional Ultrabook and is actually one of the tablet hybrid convertible sound systems that really does not compromise the traditional clamshell laptop shape at all which is probably why we like it. You can take the screen, however, and bend it back and then you can continue to bend it back. And you could first stop off in this sort of stand mode that we kind of call kiosk mode. It's great for presenting stuff. And then you can continue to fold it back and then you have what essentially a slate-style tablet and what it does here is it deactivates the keyboard and touchpad once it folds over, so you still have them under your hand, a little bit weird, but it functions essentially as a touchscreen tablet. And then when you're done, you can very easily just flip it right back quickly. It will turn a lot faster than you can with a lot of this sort of popoff screen or twisty screen versions of systems like this. Now, the 11-inch Windows 8 version of the Yoga is gonna be available in June and is gonna start at $799. I'm Dan Ackerman at CES 2013 and that is the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11s.
Join Dan Ackerman as he takes a look at the flexible Lenovo Ideapad Yoga.
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.

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 Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t convertible Netbook tablet is priced to compete with the iPad, but underwhelming battery life and unpredictable touch response mar an otherwise sharp-looking portable.

Lenovo's "me, too!" entry in the Netbook sweepstakes, the IdeaPad S10, gets the price and features right, but falls behind on battery life.
Though its subdued design may strike some as square, the midsize Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 delivers a decent media experience for less than $1,000.
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.
