First Look: Hands-on with Lenovo's limber IdeaPad Yoga 13 laptop

1:06 /

Lenovo's laptop-tablet Windows 8 hybrid takes a simple approach, but is a clever hinge enough?

-Hi, I'm Rich Brown for CNET. We're here at Lenovo's big unveiling for its Windows 8 laptops. So, we saw this one at CES earlier this year. Here we're seeing a closer look to Windows 8 obviously. So this is a convertible laptop. Here it's in its standard mode and it's a touchscreen of course. Now, this unique hinge design folds down into Tablet mode. What Lenovo is also talking about here is a couple other uses of these models. This is Stand mode. It sort of wants to show off. And here's this Tent mode. You can see the screen responds once you get into position. So, it's a 13-inch screen. It weighs just over 3 pounds. It's gonna start at $1099 at Best Buy for a Core i5 CPU in here. For its port, it's actually pretty sparse. You have an SD card slot here, USB 3. Right here, we have full-blown HDMI, USB 3, audio jack, [unk] system. We'll get it in a couple of weeks hopefully to review on top of Windows 8 Launch. I'm Rich Brown. This is Lenovo Yoga 13.
