Lenova Ideapad Yoga ad invites you to bend it over backwards

10

This ad for the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga is about a month old, but I have just stumbled over it now.

It makes a pretty good case for the hybrid form factor and 360 degree hinge, although I am not sure taking videos with your tablet camera is a good use case, no matter how many iPad users do it.

Lenovo recently released the pricing for their Windows 8 range.

The WindowsRT Ideapad Yoga II with an Nvidia Tegra 3 chip and 2GB of DDR3 memory powering its 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768 display, with five-point multitouch and up to 64GB of storage in a 2.8-pound, 15.6mm thin package will retail for $799.

The x86 version of the device with a 1600 x 900 IPS display, 128GB of solid state storage, Core i5 processor, 13 inch screen and 10 point multi-touch will cost $1,099 and be on sale on October 26th, with pre-orders from the 11th at BestBuy.

Do our readers feel it is worth the price? Let us know below.

    creative stuff…I definitely trust Lenovo more than any other PC brand right now (HP, Dell, Asus, Acer, Toshiba, Samsung, Sony, …).

    Lenovo has great products and pretty good customer service.

      I have no idea what are you talking about but I am sorry but Lenovo is crap!
      I get Dell laptops (Specially XPS) over Lenovo anytime any day!

        True with XPS out there it hardly means anything different when one talks about laptop. Its XPS. My XPS 15 rocks solid.

    Whilst it may not matter to some, I think it’s a mistake not to have a 1080p resolution on a 10″ and bigger screen. When the new Nokia 920 has the same resolution as the RT model but on a 4.5″ screen and the iPad has 2048×1536 on a slightly smaller display, this awesome looking kit starts to lose its appeal.
    If they want to compete with the Macbooks and iPads, offer a model with a much more impressive display.

      As someone who cares more about color reproduction, viewing angles and usability i disagree 100%. Resolution is more or less a talking point for devices this small when you pass 720p. Negligible enhancement unless viewed from inches away, which is doing it wrong.

        A few years ago manufacturers tried to convince everyone that 720p would do on our smaller televisions, people still bought the 1080p equivalent and 720p is almost reserved for mobile phones now!
        People see numbers, the resolution and dpi will be used against these Windows devices when compared to Apple equivalents – and most Apple devices are no slouches on the viewing angle and colour either.
        Nokia went out of their way to make a phone screen of higher dpi than the iPhone – Lenovo, Dell / Alienware, HP etc. should at least offer a higher resolution screen option on their models – without that option, people will keep turning to Apple with their more impressive numbers.
        Even if the enlightened few try to tell them dpi isn’t everything.

    Lenovo is hit or miss. This one isn’t bad its 1600 x 900 resolution has ruled it out of my option list though. I look forward to seeing more of the asus zenbook with the touchscreen and the microsoft surface.

    … Ok now im sold, that is WAY thinner than i thought it would be

  • Bugbog

    With the new Windows 8 Touch Screen O.S., the Ideapad Yoga makes a compelling argument if you still want to go for a true laptop format.
    (Besides, it’s much cheaper than a Taichi!)

    Am I really the only person here who noticed the glaring type in “Lenova”?
