Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga: A four-position convertible Ultrabook with multitouch.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga

Those dual-stance convertibles are so last year, says Lenovo . Why be limited to flipping between tablet and laptop modes when there are perfectly practical positions in between you could also be utilizing?

That’s exactly what they’re pushing with the new IdeaPad Yoga, which sports clever hinges that allow the 13-inch display to be pushed all the way around so that the top cover touches the bottom side of the laptop. That puts your 17mm thick Ultrabook into ten-finger touch tablet territory — and disables the keyboard and touchpad, in case you were worried how you’d grip the Yoga without accidentally inputting gibberish into text windows.

As for those in-between uses, Lenovo demonstrates a pair. First up is “tent mode” where the Yoga is folded back with the screen at a 30-inch degree angle to the keyboard— perfect for desktop touchscreen use. The other is “stand mode,” where the screen lines up perpendicular to the keyboard and faces away from it — which would be handy for lunchtime presentations.

Even at just 17mm thick and three pounds, the Yoga packs plenty of hardware muscle. That ten-point multitouch display pumps out 1600×900 pixels, and second-gen Intel Core processors, up to 8GB of RAM, and SSDs up to 256GB make this a machine that’s flexible enough to handle a wide variety of tasks and not merely positions .

Lenovo expects the IdeaPad Yoga to hit the street at around $1200 USD when it arrives later this year. It’s set to ship with Windows 8 pre-installed, and Lenovo’s promising the Yoga will be available at the launch of Microsoft’s next OS. If that price tag seems a bit steep, there’s always the chance that Lenovo will shave a few dollars off before its release.
