One of the best highlights in the CES is Lenovo’s introduction of the IdeaPad Yoga. As its name suggests, the device is indeed very flexible. In fact, it’s too flexible we’re not sure we’re calling it a tablet or a laptop. But Lenovo is making a serious statement with this device. One of the features that stood out with the IdeaPad Yoga is that it’s running on Windows 8. While the OS might still be in its preliminary stage, Lenovo was bold enough to display the Yoga sporting the rough Windows 8 OS. Another incredible thing about this device is its convertible screen that can flip 360 degrees. Lenovo sees the IdeaPad Yoga as a laptop first and a tablet second. The makers were wise enough to combine both the usability of a tablet and the functionality of an ultrabook. Although it is much heavier than most ultrabooks, the Yoga still packs a punch with its 13.3-inch display and 1600 x 900 resolution.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga might just be the thinnest convertible around at 16.9mm and weighing just 1.47 kg.  The tablet/laptop will be powered by the next-generation Ivy Bridge Intel Core processors with an 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD. The battery life is also remarkable. Lenova said that it will be equipped with the 54Wh juice pack, reputed to last up to eight hours of continuous usage. As for pricing, it’s expected to be priced like a laptop at around $1,000. So, will you be getting any of these once they will arrive? Check out the video below to see the IdeaPad Yoga in action.
