The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 gets into all sorts of compromising positions (pictures)

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 earns its name with a dual-hinge system that allows the screen to bend back 360 degrees. Here's an attempt to show off that feature (among a few others).

Laptop

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a pretty good laptop, and though it can work as a tablet, that isn't its strong suit. At least not conventionally.

'Tablet'

Sure, it's definitely a tablet, but it's one of the heaviest, bulkiest tablets I've ever held. What you can't see in this pic is the muscle strain.

Tent

It's good for using as a tablet on a desk, looking distinctive among other tablets, and when giving couch presentations.

The movie mode

With the keyboard flat on the desk (and automatically disabled), this mode is great when watching movies and TV shows, thanks to its easily tiltable screen.

Thick

Here, you get an idea of how thick the Yoga 11 is in tablet mode, as well as a look at some of the full-size ports, including SD storage expansion.

More bigs

More full-size ports, from left: headphone jack, USB, and HDMI.

Power

The full-size power/sleep button. Tremble at its girth!

OK, this is a laptop right?

Yep. Pretty much a full-size keyboard. Kind of difficult to think of the Yoga 11 as a tablet when there are pictures of it like this on the Internet.

Not for you -- for them

Just in case you were curious, the Lenovo logo on the back of the screen is intended for those watching you. Not the other way around. How's that feel?
