Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11 on sale early, cheaper, for now

When we first reported on Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga devices, pricing and solid release dates were the two aspects that lacking from the otherwise comprehensive coverage. Well, it seems that the Yoga 11 has been released a few weeks ahead of its scheduled December release.

The Yoga 11 is the Windows RT running sibling of the Yoga 13. With no release date in sight, the Yoga 13 is set to cost between $1,100 and $1,500. So that leaves the Yoga 11 as a much more wallet friendly option at $849 (32GB model) and $949 (64GB model).

But you can make a few savings in a post-Thanksgiving offer, where you could pick up the Yoga 11 for $679 (32GB model) or $759 for the 64GB model. A nice drop if we do say so! While it does have to compete with Microsoft’s Surface RT, this is a convertible laptop, a hybrid device, not a tablet with a detachable keyboard; technically it's a different type of device.

If you like what you see, don’t expect to get the device early if you do order one; Lenovo is quoting a shipping time of “more than four weeks” at time of writing.

How is this competition for Surface? I don't think this is even in the same class as Surface, despite being a Windows RT device.. And the price.. Please! Calculate VAT correctly and see if it's cheaper at all..

UK Prices?

Doing a quick conversion with the deal price I would say the Yoga 11 would cost £424 (32GB) £530 (64GB). with VAT it comes to £488 and £610 rounded up.

I think you missed the vat charges... its going to be around £660 for 32gb... if i calculated correctly. (presuming 25%vat)

The shipping date on the Lenovo site says 4+ weeks for the 13, but it's been available at retailers like Best Buy for over a month. So this "with no release date in sight, the Yoga 13 is set to cost between $1,100 and $1,500. " makes no sense. And the fact that it starts at $999.

Why do people always talk about putting linux on hardware designed specifically for windows.
