Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S Review

Late last year we took a look at the Lenovo Yoga 13 Ultrabook, one of the first Windows 8 convertibles to hit the scene. The system performed decently well in our testing, and while it was cool to use the machine as an oversized tablet with Windows 8 touch capabilities, the size – and especially the weight (3.4 pounds) – translated into an experience that wasn’t terribly practical.

To that end, Lenovo's latest entrant in the hybrid marketplace looks to address some of these issues, also replacing the modest and not very successful Windows RT-based Yoga 11.

The Lenovo Yoga 11S is described on the company’s website as a groundbreaking multimedia mini ultrabook, measuring just 11.6-inches, the convertible is a bit lighter than the Yoga 13 (although not by much) at 3.08 pounds. What it lacks in size compared to the larger Yoga 13, however, is reflected in the price tag as it starts at just $749.99 – a full $150 cheaper than the starting price of the larger system when we reviewed it.

I disagree with the weight, it feels about right. The dimensions make it much more usable than the 13" I'd say. The speakers are rather crap though, and if you're recording video, the mic doesn't pick up a whole lot.

Everything else though is pretty nice. Currently carrying this around at work.

This is not a very thorough review. All I know after reading it is the screen-size, weight, and price. I don't even know whether it's an RT, ARM, or Intel machine...
