Lenovo Presents IdeaPad YOGA 13 - World's First Notebook/Tablet Hybrid


After the launch on Windows 8, Lenovo decided to help those that cannot decide on whether to buy a notebook or a tablet PC.

At CES 2012 the company unveiled its latest product called IdeaPad YOGA 13, which according to Lenovo is the world's first multi-mode notebook that boasts a 360 degree flip-and-flop design.

The gadget is a mix of an ultra-portable notebook and a 10-point capacitive touch slim tablet.

If the user wants to watch a movie that they can simply position the device with its keyboard against the desk.

In order to avoid accidental input, the keyboard and touchpad are turned off when you flip the display over 180 degrees.

The YOGA 13 has a 13.3-inch display and that boasts a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. It offers wide viewing angles and, according to Lenovo, is the thinnest convertible Ultrabook, being just 0.67 inches (16.9 mm) thick.

The 3.1 pound (1.47 kg) multi-mode device will be available either with the Intel Core i3 or i7 processor, up to 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD storage.

The company ensures that the gadget's battery will be able to last for 8 hours on a single charge. So far no addition technical information has been revealed. Lenovo said that IdeaPad YOGA 13 will hit the market in the second half of 2012 and be available at a price of $1,199.
