Lenovo has unveiled a new range of ‘convertible’ devices running on Microsoft’s latest operating system, including a laptop with a hinged screen that is more flexible than a yoga instructor.
Three new models, named the IdeaPad Yoga 13, Yoga 11, IdeaTab Lynx, ThinkPad Twist, which run using Windows 8 computers, have been launched for both consumer and business purpose.
The Yoga, which was first previewed at the Consumer Electronics Show last year, looks like a regular laptop, until you start pushing the screen back.
According to ABC News, the hinge moves 360 degrees, allowing you to rotate the screen all the way over the back of the keyboard to make it a tablet.
The Yoga, which will come in two flavors-the Yoga 13 comes with Intel processors (Core i3 or i5), a 13.3-inch display, and Windows 8 Pro, will start at 1,099 dollars, the report said.
Another tablet, the ThinkPad Twist is a modern take on the old tablet PC with a new operating system.
According to the report, Lenovo announced the Windows 8 Thinkpad Tablet 2 a few weeks ago and is now announcing a similar tablet with a dockable keyboard called the Lynx.
The Lynx is a tablet with an 11.6-inch screen, available with a keyboard that connects to it.
