Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is finally being launched in the Indian market. And like everything good, this is also going to come with a really hefty price. I am sure had it not been its price tag of Rs 78,790 this little machines must be a rocking success in the Indian market. Nonetheless, despite its astronomical price tag, it is still a best buy for the value it comes with.
The IdeaPad Yoga has got so much praise in the market that the biggest PC manufacturer Lenovo is betting big on it in the market across the world. The company is hoping that its latest laptop, tablet hybrid becomes a hit with consumers in India too. Lenovo is already a serious player in the fast expanding PC market in the fast emerging economic powerhouse called India and is doing everything to expand its footprints.
This is an ultrabook that allows you to do whatever you want to do with it, even flipping it over by as much as 360 degrees. But this is not all about the play. It comes power packed and it is the best bet for people who want to combine work and play in a single machine. Lenovo is launching Yoga with 13 and 11-inch screens that have unique double hinge design that allows you to fold the screen and transform your notebook into a tablet. The IdeaPad Yoga series was showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, where its unique feature of easily switch modes between an ultrabook and a tablet, was appreciated and won 14 awards. The convertible Ultrabook Keyboard flips 360 degree using multi-mode hinge to open up into a tablet-style device. Essentially IdeaPad Yoga gives you the performance of PC with portability and flexibility of tablet.
As far as form factor of the ultrabook is concerned, Yoga 13, comes with either Intel Core i7 processors, paired with 8GB of RAM, and up to a 256GB solid-state drive. All come with Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics and running on Windows 8 OS and provides 8 hours of battery life. The display with 1600 x 900 pixels resolution comes with special â€˜Motion Controlâ€™ touchpad technology. As far as connectivity is concerned, apart from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, it has USB2.0 & USB3.0 connectors and a 3-in-1 card reader. Rajesh Thadani, Lenovo India said, â€œLenovo is one of the first players to embody the convertible design and touch interface in a single device- the IdeaPad Yoga, while providing an optimized Windows 8 experience to the end user. The product is targeted at individuals who want to enhance their performance at work and play through one extraordinarily light device that offers flexible multi-modes. Despite having two devices rolled into one, the Yoga is unbelievably thin, offering the user great mobility and convenience.â€ This is an exciting product if you are not offended by the high price of this beautiful power-packed machine.
Meanwhile the companies that are manufacturing tablet and laptop hybrids benefit from the fact that Windows 8 OS is meant to work equally well in the mouse- and keyboard-driven world of desktop PCs and laptops and in the multitouch universe of tablets. And that challenges computer makers to come up with hardware designs that are equally flexible. So they are using their expertise in manufacturing great PCs and integrating them with tablet interface with the help of a revolutionary OS that comes with the best of both the world.
