Lenovo has revealed that it is launching four hybrid devices, including two variants of the IdeaPad Yoga, the IdeaPad Lynx and the ThinkPad Twist.
The devices bridge the gap between tablets and laptops through the use of detachable keyboards, and the flexible devices could be the reason why Lenovo has just been branded the world’s number one PC maker. So what does the line up look like?
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 and IdeaPad Yoga 13
The Yoga 11 is a Windows RT device running on an ARM NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, while the Yoga 13 is a Windows 8 device and runs on an Intel 3rd generation Core processor.
The devices depart from Microsoft’s Surface tablet by offering different screen sizes and attached keyboards.
The fact that Yoga displays are on a 360 degree hinge also means that users can fold them “from laptop to tablet in one simple motion.”
Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx tablet
The IdeaPad Lynx boasts an 11.6-inch screen and is powered by an Intel Atom processor. The Windows 8 tablet also comes with a keyboard accessory, and when this is attached has an impressive 16 hours battery life.
According to Lenovo the light and portable tablets give users the freedom to switch fluidly between a tablet and PC.
The firm says: “Users can interact with a variety of Windows 8 apps via its multi-touch screen when on the go or they can connect it to its keyboard for a full-function PC experience.”
Lenovo ThinkPad Twist
Lenovo bills the ThinkPad Twist as “one affordable device that can do it all”. The device is an Ultrabook convertible with a 12.5 inch display.
Powered by an Intel 3rd generation processor, users can choose from solid-state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) storage.
The IdeaPad Yoga 13 and the ThinkPad Twist will be available on Windows 8 launch day on 26 October, while the Yoga 11 and IdeaPad Lynx are set for a December launch.
