Fortunately, the battery life is worthy of a tablet: Lenovo says the 54Wh juicepack can last up to eight hours.

Seriously, folks, even next to all the Android tablets, chubby Ultra- books and baby scales that have been announced at CES, this is by far the most memorable thing we’ve seen. Do it.

Based on our conversations with Lenovo reps, it’s clear the company sees this as a laptop first, and For what it is, though, we would have expected it tablet second. The proof is in the specs, really. It to be thicker. It measure s 17mm (0.67) inches tall, weighs “less than 1.5kg,” or 3.3 pounds, making it which wouldn’t be at all impressive for a typical heavier than some Ultrabooks.

  2. 2. January 10, 2012 batteryfast.co.uk Lenovo’s IdeaPad Yoga Convertible Tablet Review, Runs Windows 8 and Long Batteries life Interestingly, Lenovo even rejiggered the power port to help minimize the thickness. Whether you call this a laptop or a tablet, the build quality is top-notch in either category. The patented hinge is rated for 25,000 cycles, and the back cover has a soft, tactile finish. The keyboard, too, feels sturdy, in the style of the IdeaPad U300s. The real start of the show, though, is that IPS display, which we can tell offers vibrant colors, crisp detail andhttp://www.batteryfast.co.uk/battery-technology/lenovos-ideapad-yoga-convertible-tablet-review-runs-windows-8-and-long-batteries-life/ wide viewing angles. But even at this early stage, the screen seems responsive. Not just to rote taps and swipes, but 10-fingered input, which at the very least should come in handy for drawing apps. HD videos, so far as we can tell, run fluidly at full-screen too. Of course, the timing of this all depends on how quickly Microsoft can get Windows 8 out the door, so suffice to say, it could be the better part of a year before we or any of you guys get to take one for a spin. Until then, have a gander at our hands-on photos, and watch the demo for yourself. Related Articles: Did you enjoy this post?
