Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S - 59385438 isn't the cheapest cheap laptop out there, nor is it the cheapest Ultrabook or Windows 8 tablet or convertible. But you would be hard pressed to find a better combination of power and versatility at this price point. The move to Haswell technology is the icing on the cake, and it puts the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S - 59385438 head and shoulders above other Yoga 11S versions, at least for now.
Pros: Can be used as a laptop or tablet, Great design, Latest Intel processor
Cons: Available in only one configuration, and from only one retailer (Best Buy), Tablet configuration leaves keyboard exposed, though deactivated
Lenovo Yoga 11S (Core i3, $699 version) Video Review
11 December 2013
Excerpt: For those that are interested in the Lenovo Yoga 11S (and I’m sure many are because it’s a great bit of kit) I’ve put together two video reviews for you. They follow-on from the full review posted here last week and, as that review did, focuses on the value and performance of the Ivy Bridge Core i3 1.4Ghz version at $699.
Conclusion: In closing, we've enjoyed using this machine for the past few weeks. The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S has a unique design, and could be one of my favorite hybrid/portables on the market. It's made for the traveler, and can do it all whether you're out and about, or sitting on the couch. With Lenovo you know it is top quality, and it shows during daily usage.
