While the 13 inch IdeaPad costs Rs. 84,290, the 11 inch convertible is Rs. 61,790.
Lenovo has launched its latest hybrid notebook/tablet, 'IdeaPad Yoga', for the Indian market. Though the product was demoed at the launch event here on Thursday, the products—devices with 13 and 11 inch screens that can flip and fold effortlessly—will be on the shelves sometime next week.
The IdeaPad Yoga series created quite a buzz at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, where its ability to swiftly switch modes between an ultrabook and a tablet was showcased. While the 13 inch IdeaPad costs Rs. 84,290, the 11 inch convertible is Rs. 61,790. The 'convertible' experience, of course, has to do with the fact that at the flip of a “special patented double hinge”, the keyboard flips 360 degrees beneath the screen making it into a tablet. Both devices come preloaded with Windows 8.
The 13 inch screen is the heavier device (1.54 kg) and promises eight hours of battery life – a critical parameter for devices these days – while the lighter IdeaPad Yoga11 weighs 1.25 kgs and promises an additional two hours of battery life.
