Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Chromebook Review

Notebookcheck
31 August 2014
  • Summary: The ThinkPad-Yoga-Chromebook hybrid. What happens when you cross a Chromebook with both a ThinkPad and a Yoga? You get one of the most well-made and practical inexpensive multimode 11-inch Chromebooks in the market. We detail in this review how the ThinkPad Yoga 11e has instantly become one of our favorite Chromebooks as of 2014.
  • Pros: IPS touchscreen panel with edge-to-edge glass, MilSpec tested, rugged glass-fiber plastic and polycarbonate chassis, Maintenance panel for direct access to battery, WLAN module, and system fan, Great colors and contrast, Responsive keyboard and large touchpad, Tablet mode, Good battery life, Quiet fan, Strong hardware and impressive display for the price. This ThinkPad Chromebook offers much more than competing models.
  • Cons: Glossy display difficult to see outdoors, No integrated WWAN or GPS options, Thicker and heavier than other 11.6-inch Chromebooks, A bit more expensive than competing models, Battery not easily replaceable, No DisplayPort or Ethernet ports, Fingerprint magnet, No keyboard backlight, Soft speakers, Removable battery, brighter backlight, keyboard backlight, and WWAN capabilities especially would make this notebook even better outdoors. Some users may miss the TrackPoint.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Touchscreen Laptop Review

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Summary: We thought the Yoga worked like a charm and we were thoroughly impressed with its small size and flexible design. The Tegra 3 processor was consistently quick and display quality was crisp and beautiful. Thanks to the included Microsoft Office, you can get a range of work done but be forewarned that the RT operating system does not allow for additional upgrades and program downloads, so if you use your laptop for all your work needs the Yoga may not be the right fit for...
  • Pros: Learn It & Love It:, Savvy Screen:, Built Tough:, Yoga Mode:, Speedy Processor:, Price & Battery Power:

Lenovo Yoga 11S Ultrabook Review

TechSpot
18 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Our sample system arrived running Windows 8 64-bit although one could opt for the Pro version when ordering. I’m a bit more versed with Windows 8 now compared to when I reviewed the original Yoga last December. If you’re new to Microsoft’s latest operating system, I would urge you to check out our in-depth review of Windows 8 to get you headed in the right direction.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a better laptop than tablet

CNET
18 June 2013
  • Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a great laptop alternative that's unfortunately too bulky to completely replace your tablet.
  • Pros: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 works as a laptop alternative, thanks to its always-attached keyboard and myriad useful ports, and its physical flexibility provides useful ergonomic options. Its battery charges quickly and depletes slowly. Brightness shortcuts on the keyboard unearth a normally buried option in Windows RT.
  • Cons: As a tablet, the device is too bulky and heavy to hold in your hands, and its Web performance is slow. A full Windows 8 version with updated specs will be available soon for only $150 more.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 Review

ThinkComputers
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a very interesting device. It is a laptop, but an underpowered one. It is a tablet, but is larger and thicker than other tablets out there. The Yoga 11 offers the best of both worlds, for those who need it. That is the big key factor, if you really need both a tablet and laptop. As a laptop it is compact and light, but is underpowered.
  • Pros: – Cool convertible aspect, – Great battery life, – Two USB ports, – Feels solid and qualitymade, – Comfortable keyboard
  • Cons: – Underpowered for a laptop, – Windows RT makes for limited functionality

  • Conclusion: And that's our conclusion. Overall, we liked the Yoga 11, but we're not sold on Windows RT. Putting aside RT's limitations (the biggest one being that it can't run legacy Windows programs), we applaud Lenovo for trying something new here. If you can live with Windows RT, the Yoga 11 should suit you fine. If you need a full-blown version of Windows, this one won't do. But if that's the case, there's always the Yoga 13, which really is a laptop with a different twist.
  • Pros: Attractive price, Good-looking screen, Innovative 360-degree folding keyboard, Comfortable keyboard, Respectable battery life, Wide range of ports
  • Cons: Won't run legacy Windows programs, Keyboard position feels awkward in tablet mode, Too heavy when used in tablet mode

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11

PC Magazine
27 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a good Windows RT convertible to have around if you want a tablet-like experience, but absolutely need a keyboard. Its flips and acrobatics help usability, but ultimately this is a laptop with a good mix of tablet functionality.
  • Pros: Traditional clamshell form factor. Range of convertible positions. Feels fine in hand as tablet. Very good battery life. Comfortable keyboard. Full size HDMI
  • Cons: Limited Windows RT app library. Can't install older Windows apps. Can't install third-party browser. Local storage a bit small. Only USB 2.0.
