It fold, it flips... but does it blend?
If you're tired of all the Ultrabook announcements today, I'm sorry to say that the announcements will keep coming for the rest of the week. The good news, however, is that we've got a unique notebook to talk about today that strays far away from the traditional "open and close" of traditional notebooks.
Lenovo today announced its IdeaPad YOGA notebook which features a 360 degrees dual-hinge design that allows it to open like a traditional notebook, then flip the screen 360 degrees backwards to turn the device into a tablet (the back of the screen can fold flat with the back bottom of the notebook). When it tablet mode, users have full control over the IdeaPad YOGA's 13.1-inch touch screen (1600x900), which allows 10-point capacity touch. We're hoping that the keyboard is disable in this mode to prevent keypresses from being regiestered. It can also be used in "tent" mode in which the device is propped up on a desk.
The 3.1-pound IdeaPad YOGA is powered by Intel Core processor, supports up to 8GB of RAM, and up to a 256GB SSD. The notebook is designed to take full advantage of Windows 8 (the prototypes shown at CES were running Microsoft's next generation operating system).
As the notebook is built around Windows 8, it won't be launch until the boys from Redmond roll out their next generation flagship consumer operating system.
Here are a couple of live shots of the YOGA:

I pitched my tent but it started leaking shortly thereafter.
