If there was an Ultrabook that Dhalsim of Street Fighter fame would settle for, it definitely would be the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 which can flex into many different unique poses, never mind that it is an Ultrabook in the first place. Just like how cars have convertibles, so too, do Ultrabooks, where the IdeaPad Yoga 13 sports a revolutionary hinge which enables it to uniquely move 360° and fold from laptop to tablet in a single, simple and swift motion. This particular model might just kick start the craze for multi-mode Ultrabooks, where it runs on Windows 8 from Microsoft with a 3rd generation Intel Core processor, all crammed into a frame that measures 16.9mm thin, carrying a battery that delivers up to 8 hours of battery life – although that is in theory and has yet to be tested in real life.
Other features include Dolby Home Theatre, a 13.3-inch high definition IPS display, and special Motion Control technology for easy manipulation of your media. You can also use your fingers to manipulate the data on your Yoga 13, as the display itself carries touchscreen functionality. Just make sure you washed your hands nice and clean beforehand so that no greasy smudges are left streaking the display. The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 will arrive from October 26th onwards (just in time for the Windows 8 release), with pricing starting from $1,099 upwards, depending on the configuration.
