Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga is a Windows 8 Ultrabook and multitouch tablet PC in one - Jan 10

Lenovo’s new IdeaPad Yoga, unveiled today at CES, bolts together a Windows 8 Ultrabook and a multitouch screen on a 360-degreen hinge to make a versatile tablet PC.

First it’s an Ultrabook

The Yoga’s main specs are all Ultrabook: an Intel Core low-voltage processor, SSD storage, eight hours of battery life and a chassis that weighs just 1.4kg and is just 16.7mm thick. However, once you see that you can fold the screen all the way around to be flat against the back of the keyboard you realise that it is no ordinary laptop.

Then it gets folded

The 13.3in display supports eight-way multitouch, and turns your laptop into a Windows 8 tablet for drawing, stock checking, watching films or simply surfing the web while leaning back in your favourite chair.

And now it’s a tablet

The price will be around £800, but specifications and release dates are not yet final; according to Lenovo it depends on Windows 8’s release schedule, so we’re unlikely to see the Yoga before the autumn.
