IdeaTab Lynx
Lenovo unveiled its IdeaPad Yoga 11, IdeaPad Yoga 13, IdeaTab Lynx and ThinkPad Twist

Windows 8 will be here in a little over two weeks, and Lenovo is prepared to show off its new spread of devices that will run Microsoft's newest operating system. 

Today, Lenovo unveiled its IdeaPad Yoga 11, IdeaPad Yoga 13, ThinkPad Twist and IdeaTab Lynx -- all Windows 8-powered convertibles. Lenovo is betting big that customers will want convertibles over traditional laptops or tablets, since convertibles combine the best of both worlds. 

IdeaPad Yoga 11

The IdeaPad Yoga 11 is an 11.6-inch Windows RT device with a display that flips 360 degrees backwards, transforming the laptop into a tablet with a stand, if needed. Under the hood, the Yoga 11 is packing a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, a 1366x768 display resolution, a 720p webcam, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, a card reader, 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. 

You can pick up a Yoga 11 starting at $799. It's available in Silver Gray and Clementine Orange. 

IdeaPad Yoga 13

The IdeaPad Yoga 13, like the Yoga 11, flips 360 backwards to turn the laptop into a tablet-like device. It also comes in Silver Gray and Clementine Orange, but most other specs are completely different. For starters, the Yoga 13 has a 13.3-inch display and runs Windows 8. It also has Intel Core i5 and i7 processors with Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of solid-state storage, a 1600x900 resolution, a 720p webcam, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, a card reader, 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. 

The Yoga 13's price will start at $1,099.

ThinkPad Twist

The ThinkPad Twist does exactly what the name indicates -- the display flips down and twists to cover the keyboard, turning the laptop into a tablet. It has a 12.5-inch display, 1366x768 resolution, Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors with Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, a 720p webcam, two USB 3.0 ports, 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini DisplayPort, Mini HDMI port and three storage options: 320GB HDD, 500GB HDD or 128GB SDD.

The Twist starts at $849.

IdeaTab Lynx

The IdeaTab Lynx is basically a tablet with optional keyboard dock, turning the device into a laptop. The display is 11.6 inches and it features a Clover Trail-based Intel Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of DDR2, 32GB/64GB storage options, 2 MP front-facing camera, a 1366x768 resolution, Micro USB 2.0 port, Micro HDMI port, microSD card slot, 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0.

The starting price for the Lynx is $599 for the tablet alone, but adding the keyboard dock will cost an additional $149.

I like Thinkpads too but get real, that notebook you have is trash by modern standards. Any $1000 ultrabook with an SSD will absolutely smoke that thing. If you're spending $1000 an 11" MBA is faster in every way imaginable and have more storage, as will any other $1000 ultrabook with SSD storage.

Faster, really?

Dood, its an X40, ancient tech. Way to miss the point entirely and somehow make it about Apple. The point he is making is that it was a great laptop that stood the test of time. Thinkpads have longbeen the best quality, and Lenovo has improved it over IBM, much to my surprise. LEnovo for the past several years running makes hands down the best quality laptops on earth, eclipsing even your precious Apple, who is a distant 3rd (Asus is 2nd).

I still have it, now running Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and performs just about any business task faster than most current $1000 notebooks with an HDD.

He believes it is still competitive with modern laptops, which is ridiculous.

This wasn't a bashing Lenovo post; if you pay attention you'll see that I praise their hardware all the time. On the low end it isn't very good, no manufacturer is, but on the medium and high end they are quite good. It is the only notebook manufacturer I really recommend aside from Apple.

The only really good hardware Asus has is the Zenbook Prime due to its screen, and even with that you're dealing with an inferior keyboard to Lenovo and Apple and an inferior trackpad to Apple.

Not really an accurate statement. The notebook manufacturing metrics are all over the map.

PCWorld lists Apple as #1, Asus as #4, and Lenovo as #12. Laptopmag lists Apple as #1, Lenovo as #2, and Asus as 5th.
Rescuecom lists Lenovo as #1, Apple as #4, Asus as #5.

I do data science and predictive modeling for a living and it is almost comical the number of ways data can be represented. Give me your conclusion up front and I'll make your data tell that story and I won't even have to change the numbers.

Lenovo is quickly becoming the number one PC manufacturer surpassing HP about now or on the same level. They sell more machines (notebooks, desktops) then Apple. Worldwide. I think your referring to US numbers. Retail numbers in the US aren't that relevant. Apple mostly has retail staff for that matter. Some 35 000 retail people working in stores and related business. Companies like Asus aren't even number five in the US for that matter.
