Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13

  |   by NotebookReview Staff

The principal feature mentioned in sales materials for the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is the 360-degree pivoting screen which allows this 13-inch Ultrabook to transform into a tablet or one of two other presentation modes for displaying content. Like most Ultrabooks, the IdeaPad Yoga 13 strikes an impressive balance between speedy performance, good battery life and a thin-and-light design. If you don’t mind the way the keyboard is left exposed in tablet mode then this is a pretty great hybrid notebook/tablet.
