Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S

MobileTechReview.com
10 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo Yoga 13 was a huge hit, and we can't blame the company for capitalizing on the design by bringing it to smaller and larger models. It's still attractive, wildly versatile and sturdy. You won't sacrifice laptop ergonomics or keyboard quality as you often do with other Windows 8 convertibles, yet it works nicely as a (heavy) tablet. The price is nice too, but the Yoga 11 faces competition from the HP Split x2, Sony Vaio Duo 11 and even Surface Pro 2.
  • Pros: Versatile Yoga design in a very compact package. Full Intel Core CPUs, sharp IPS touch screen, very good keyboard.
  • Cons: Hard to get excited by 3rd gen CPUs, Y series CPU doesn't offer much power savings.

  • Conclusion: However those devices also don't offer the flexibility and diversity of the Yoga design. Those looking for a versatile design and don't mind relinquishing on pure performance will be best served by the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S.
  • Pros: 360 Hinge Design, Portable, Quality Keyboard
  • Cons: Low Screen Resolution, Limited Battery Life, Mediocre Performance

PC Magazine
4 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a versatile touch-enabled convertible laptop/tablet combo. We applaud Lenovo for its innovation, but internal components and battery life in particular leave us asking for more.
  • Pros: 10-point touch screen. Range of convertible positions. Nice IPS panel. Comfortable keyboard. Boots and reacts quickly. HDMI out port.
  • Cons: Low battery life. Extra heat venting mars tablet mode. Overly aggressive ambient light sensor. Motion control is gimmicky. No 5GHz WiFi.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review

  • Summary: The IdeaPad Yoga 11 carries a price tag of Rs 61,790, but you can find it online for roughly Rs 56,000. While this may seem like a good price for a Windows hybrid Ultrabook, it’s actually not. All said and done, the Yoga 11 is nothing more than a tablet with a keyboard and should not be mistaken for a real notebook. Windows RT is the main culprit here as it’s very limiting in terms of app support.

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a sleek convertible that offers an awesome 13-plus hours of battery life along with a comfortable keyboard and fairly bright and responsive touch screen. Is that enough to justify spending $649? It depends on whether you're willing to live within the limitations of Windows RT, which applies to both the inability to run traditional desktop apps (other than Office) and the still somewhat lackluster selection in the Windows Store.
  • Pros: Slim and sturdy chassis, Flip design makes it easy to change modes, Bright display, Very long battery life
  • Cons: Oversensitive touchpad lacks palm rejection, Limited app selection, Slow boot time, Feels hefty in tablet mode

  • Summary: The Yoga 11 is slim, portable and transforms from a standard laptop into a tablet for swiping around Windows 8 RT. Sadly, it's a lot more expensive than Microsoft's Surface RT, making it very difficult to recommend.
  • Cons: Needlessly expensive; Unimpressive screen resolution; Windows 8 app store is still very sparse.

THE INQUIRER

  • Conclusion: The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11 has a very unique construction and in terms of design alone is perhaps one of our favourite hybrid devices out there now for this reason. It's an ultra-flexible laptop with the option to convert into various different modes, making it a close to ideal multimode device.
  • Pros: Flexible for user needs, lightweight and slim design with good build quality makes it portable, unique and innovative.
  • Cons: Battery life not as good as promised, slightly dimmer than expected display, expensive for its specifications., Good potential is held back by the limitations of Windows RT.
