The Ideapad Yoga 13 Convertible 13.3" Ultrabook Computer from Lenovo features a unique 360° multi-mode design. Laptop Mode features the traditional layout of a laptop where you use the keyboard and touchpad to navigate the screen. Stand Mode is where you can watch videos and view photos with little to no touch interactions with the computer. Tablet Mode is when you push the screen all the way back, transforming this Ultrabook into a tablet. Tent Mode is when you stand the Yoga up, resembling a tent. This mode is best suited for PowerPoint presentations.

The system is powered by a dual-core 2.0GHz Intel Core i7-3537U processor. It also has 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, a 2-in-1 media card reader, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers with Dolby Home Theater v4 technology.

Windows 8 is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles that update in real-time, which provide faster access to news, weather forecasts, sports scores, social network updates and more. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience.

Hardware

Dual-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7 Performance
The Yoga 13 houses an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3537U processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 2.0GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to up to 3.1GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, the Yoga 13 allows you to multitask between applications quickly and efficiently
13.3" HD+ IPS Capacitive Touchscreen
The 13.3" HD+ capacitive touchscreen features an in-plane switching (IPS) panel for wide viewing angles, LED backlighting and 10-point touch support. You'll be able to utilize the multitouch gestures of Windows 8 and transition from touch to keyboard to touchpad. The screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1600 x 900 native resolution. It has a VibrantView glossy coating for brighter color and deeper black levels
Multi-Mode Design
Thanks to its unique 360° hinge, this Lenovo Yoga 13 computer can transform into four unique modes for a variety of interactive options, which are:

  • Laptop Mode is the traditional notebook layout with the screen in the normal position and you use the keyboard and touchpad to navigate through Windows 8

  • Stand Mode is when you push the screen past 180° and have it come up the other side, but not all the way to 360°. In this mode, the screen resembles a TV or a picture frame, from which you can watch videos and view photos with little to no touch interactions

  • Tent Mode is when you stand the Lenovo Yoga 13 on its two edges with its hinge in the highest position. As you can gather from the name of the mode, the Lenovo Yoga 13 should resemble a tent in this position. Tent Mode is best utilized for presentations, such as for graphs and PowerPoint slides

  • Tablet Mode is when you push the screen 360° back so it is resting on the backside of the keyboard. This mode makes the Yoga 13 resemble a tablet and you can use its 10-point supported capacitive touchscreen to tap, swipe and rotate your way around Windows 8
  • Stay Connected
    This Lenovo Yoga 13 computer comes with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity so you can connect to any Wi-Fi network, provided you have the required password and authorization. There's also built-in Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you can connect various compatible peripherals, such as a wireless keyboard and mouse. The integrated front-facing webcam and integrated microphone lets you video chat with friends and family with ease

    Windows 8

    The Redesigned Start Screen
    Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking and also update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen. If you prefer the traditional Start screen of Windows 7, you have the option to switch to it
    Seamless Integration of Multi-Touch Gestures
    Windows 8 supports multi-touch gestures. Now, you can use your keyboard, mouse or the touchpad using simple gestures. Whether you're browsing apps, reading a book or typing on the go with touch, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between all three interactive components. With the touchpad, Windows 8 allows you to use multi-touch gestures, such as swipe, drag, tap, slide, pinch-to-zoom and more
    To the Cloud
    With Windows 8, you'll be able to bring all your personalized Start screens with you by signing into your Microsoft account. When signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your own Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
    Windows Store
    In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

      A wonderful ultra book. i7 makes it very fast. Downloads almost anything in under 10 seconds. Have had no serious problems yet, had it for 2 months. Minecraft runs well, about 35 fps at normal render distance (bear in mind this is only with Intel hd for graphics, so pretty good). Home, end, and page up / down keys are super convenient for typing w/o moving the cursor with the mouse, especially when coding to jump through lines of code. Also, Windows 8 automatically installs drivers for hardware when you plug it in which is amazing. Personally I do not find windows 8 as bad as many make it out to be.

      I liked the design concept, but fell out of love after a week. Basically the OS was deemed corrupt after 1 week of usage by Lenovo so the OS needed to be reinstalled, the Yoga would function after power up, but at anytime could jump into a condition which rendered the unit unusable. Lenovo remotely scanned the computer and found no problem with virus, malware ect. Since no image file of the OS was on the computer they said I had to buy a disk or disk+service.

      They refused to send me an email describing exactly what was wrong or what caused the problem. This was a massive flag to me.

      Fortunately after talking with BH, they took the machine back with full refund. BTW the tech guy at BH new what I was talking about with respect to the Yoga.

      I will use BH again, not Lenovo

      Comments about Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Convertible 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer:

      I would actually rate it LESS than 1 star!! After 6 months the motherboard had to be replaced, then just after a year the power board and power adapter went out and took out the motherboard too!!! Techs at the repair place said they did not like them either - obviously too many to repair. Avoid like the plague!

            I bought this for my wife, who wanted a small and light computer to carry around. She saw this one and loved it. The machine is super-fast, nice to look at, relatively light, and has USB 2 and 3 ports for flexibility.
            It comes with Windows 8, which I absolutely hate. But, if you like touchscreens and Windows 8, I don't think you can beat this machine in performance vs. price.

                        Comments about Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Convertible 13.3" Multi-Touch Ultrabook Computer:

                        I bought this laptop, because I could truly use it as a large tablet with apps. Also, it offered good horsepower (8GB i7 processor) to do serious tasks.

                        It is heavier than an ipad, so it is not in direct comparison to a tablet. Overall, I felt it was fair comprimise.

                        The touch screen is great, and improves the experience.

                          Two weeks into playing/working with my Yoga. And I love it. Once you get used to touch screen using a laptop without it is not satisfying anymore... The form factor is genius. However - honestly the device is NOT a handheld.
