Lenovo Yoga 11S convertible laptop now available

As befits its name, the Yoga bends itself into different shapes -- you can use it as a conventional laptop, bend it backward into a tablet, or prop it up into a "tent mode" to act as a display.

Consumers eyeing Lenovo's Yoga 11S hybrid laptop/tablet now no longer have to wait to get one.

Lenovo kicked off preorders for the new Yoga on May 16, promising that the convertible would be available for shipping and on store shelves starting June 23. Buyers can now pick one up directly at Lenovo's online store, which estimates a June 27 ship date based on an order date of June 24.

The 11S is also available through Best Buy, both online and at the company's retail outlets.

At this point, the new convertible is available in the U.S. only through Lenovo and Best Buy, a Lenovo spokesperson told CNET.

The Yoga 11S is outfitted with Windows 8, transforming it into a beefier version of its Yoga 11 predecessor, which came with Windows RT. The 11S also offers an 11.6-inch 1366x768 high-definition LED screen.

But the neatest trick is the way the Yoga bends itself into different shapes. You can use it as a conventional laptop, bend it backwards into a tablet, or prop it up into a "tent mode" or "stand mode" where it acts as a display.

You can outfit the 11S with a 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor. You can also choose either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and opt for a 128GB or 256GB solid-state drive. Prices start from $749.99 to $1,299.99 depending on the configuration and other options.
