  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a solid ultrabook, but as a tablet, it's a little too big for comfort. Otherwise, the Yoga 13 has the best hybrid design we've seen so far.
  • Pros: Solid Windows 8 ultrabook. Folds back for tablet and stand modes. Excellent keyboard. Speedy performance thanks to Intel Core i5-3317U processor and 128GB solid-state drive.
  • Cons: Too large and heavy for comfort as a tablet.

  • Conclusion: Despite its quirks, however, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is easily one of the standouts in the first wave of finger-friendly Windows 8 convertibles—as well as a solid laptop in its own right.
  • Pros: 360-degree flipping lid, Vibrant high-resolution display, Comfortable keyboard, Slim, lightweight design
  • Cons: Gesture-control woes, Skimpy selection of ports, Keys lie on bottom in tablet mode, Lots of bundled software saps storage space

14 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is one of the more eye-catching convertible tablets to commemorate Windows 8's launch. It has all the features we like from the IdeaPad U line (slimness, a classy chassis and very good keyboard) paired with a sharp and bright 1600 x 900 IPS touch screen.
  • Pros: Lovely 1600 x 900 IPS touch screen, slim, quick, great keyboard.
  • Cons: Odd design leaves keyboard exposed when not in laptop mode, no backlit keyboard. Single band WiFi.

Notebookcheck
14 November 2012
  • Summary: Split Personality. With full 360-degree hinges and touchscreen capabilities, the Yoga series is perhaps Lenovo’s most ambitious addition to the IdeaPad family to date. Its launch and hardware were designed to coincide with the release of Windows 8, generating even more word-of-mouth.

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

Wired
12 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Slates, sliders, convertibles…. The jury’s out on exactly what type of Windows 8 tablets the market is going to embrace (if any). Lenovo figured this out early, and it’s releasing Windows 8 portables in no fewer than four different form factors.
  • Pros: Lenovo motion control system lets you manage audio and video, hands free. Stays fairly cool, even under load. Solid battery life (4.5 hours) versus the competition. Special sleeve covers the underside keyboard when in slate mode so you aren’t feeling the buttons …
  • Cons: … but it’s sold separately for . Fan tends to run constantly. SSD bizarrely partitioned into 7 chunks, leaving just 44GB of usable space on C drive. New rectangular power port easily mistaken for USB. Hinge needs tightening.
