Windows 8 powered device details are starting to get filled out now that the October 26th release date is closing in. Our good friend Avram over at Laptop Mag has gotten his hands on the ARM powered convertible, the Windows RT Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11.
The Yoga 11 is $799 and stands apart from many other devices as its hinge allows it to bend back a full 360 degrees and turn into a tablet. Unlike the 13 inch edition which has Intel inside, the Yoga 11 is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor. It weighs in at 2.8 pounds in its 11.6 inch frame along side a 1366 x 768 screen resolution that sports a 10 point multi touch. On the front you’ll also find a 720p webcam with up to 2GB of RAM and up to 64GB of eMMC storage.
The question on my mind was how was the keyboard, Lenovo has such a sterling reputation in the touch typing department it begs the question how did they stack up on their latest portable device. Avram is a true Lenovo fan like my self so his critical eye on one of his favorite vendors is guaranteed! First impressions are favorable, which is more then we can say for the Acer W510 Clover Trail hybrid that got put through the paces this morning.
Check out the below video for a good impression of the final product.
