Lenovo came at CES 2012 with some interesting devices, among which there was also the IdeaPad Yoga convertible tablet with Windows 8. This model is supposed to debut this year with an unique form factor and a price tag of $1,000. What’s unique about the Yoga is that it’s actually a notebook with a 360 degree dual hinge design, that allows you to turn it into a tablet, if you want to.

The back of the display can fold flat with the back bottom of the laptop, as shown in the pictures in this article. When you’re in tablet mode, you can easily control the 13.1 inch touchscreen on the device, with a 1600 x 900 pixel resolution. The slate weighs 3.3 pounds and it’s powered by an Intel Core processor, while its specs also include up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of SSD storage. The screen here is of IPS origin and Intel Core CPU is of Ivy Bridge flavour.

Of course, this tablet/laptop will only come out when Windows 8 is finalized, so later this year. As far as battery goes, we get a 54Wh juicer with up to 8 hours of use from it. Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga will be marketed as a convertible ultrabook, measuring 16.9mm and having two use modes: full size notebook and tablet.

    Finally a hi-res Windows Tablet-convertible!

    Now if it only had a decent pen to go with it, for precision drawing.

    And a battery that lasted longer than 4 hours.

    And a price that was competitive with 1920×800 Android tablets.

    Still, an interesting convertible
