German retailer Notbooksbiliiger.de have revealed two Lenovo 11s models along with a few more specs, pricing and pre-order. Starting at €899 with a Core i3 and going up to a Core i5 with 256GB and 8GB RAM for €1199. In the USA the Core i5 (4Gb/128GB) model is $799 so clearly the EU prices have been set too high. Don’t be tempted at that price.

7 teams are competing in the Ultimate Coder Challenge where showcase applications are being built for a Lenovo Yoga 13 to demonstrate the Intel Perceptual Computing hardware.

I’m involved with the judging of the Ultimate Coder event and every week you’ll find an update from me as I analyze the teams progress. This is week 4 and this week there are some great videos, interesting artwork, honesty and a ton of coding to enjoy. Some, however, are still to incorporate any use of gesture control in their apps. Do they have time?

7 teams are finding out how hard perceptual computing can be in Week3 of the Ultimate Coder Challenge where showcase perceptual computing applications are being built for a Lenovo Yoga 13.

I’m involved with the judging of the Ultimate Coder event and every week you’ll find an update from me as I analyse the teams progress. We’ve also got a video for you and it’s a scorcher – due to the ‘event’ that happens 5 minutes into the video. It’s a must-watch and embedded below.

I’ve read through 7 long posts of detailed information which, this week, are projected from the minds of coders. There’s a ton of code being presented along with a few nice videos and some information about to handle variation and error data being produced by the PC receiver.

7 teams have just finished week 2 of the Ultimate Coder Challenge, building showcase perceptual computing applications on a Lenovo Yoga 13 that will demonstrate the sort of interaction capability that could be built into a Ultrabook, and perhaps the operating system in the future.

I’m involved with the judging of the Ultimate Coder event and every week you’ll find an update from me as I analyse the teams progress.

This is week 2. The teams presented their application ideas last week and I was honestly quite surprised at the level that all the teams had set their targets. There’s on red-flag to report but apart from that – Wow!

Air Gestures, facial analysis, object tracking, advanced voice recognition, touch and Ultrabooks. It’s all in the Ultimate Coder Challenge where 7 teams are building showcase applications on a Lenovo Yoga 13 that will demonstrate the sort of interaction capability that could be built into a Ultrabook in the future.

This is week 1. The teams have started their journey and have all published some interesting and useful content on the subject. Will they have enough time? Have they planned for problems? Who’s going to win? I’ve dived into the projects and give my thoughts below.

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 (40)

The Yoga 13 is a truly exiting form factor and a well-made device. It’s a good Ultrabook and yet there are serious issues to be considered. The Yoga 13 is missing a few features and fails on a few aspects related to the convertible form-factor and convergence. Read on for a full review of the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13.

This review written on the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13.

2013-01-08-1336

I’m a little bit behind the curve on reviewing the Lenovo Yoga 13 but given the amount of interest that we’ve had on the Yoga 13 over the last year (yes it was a year ago I had my first hands-on) it’s worth spending some time on a detailed review. Before that though, here’s my first impressions after 4-5 days usage.

Confirmed: Lenovo Yoga 11s uses New Low-Power Core i3 at 1.4Ghz (Plus Video Hands-On)

Tags: , , , , , ,


yoga11s cpu

Now we know why Lenovo didn’t release an 11” Yoga with Core inside…they were waiting for cooler CPUs which confirms our suspicions yesterday.

The new Lenovo Yoga 11S seen at CES yesterday has been confirmed to have a Core i3-3229Y CPU running at 1.4Ghz. That’s the same clock and CPU power as the early Core i3 Sandy Bridge Ultrabooks in 2011 and just about half of the max performance you can get out of a Core i5 which can Turbo for short periods to 2.7/2.8Ghz.

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S Launching – With Lower Power Intel Core?

Tags: , , , ,


Lenovo Ideaad Yoga 11S

I’m testing the Lenovo Yoga 13 right now. It’s a great Ultrabook but not such a great tablet. Maybe that’s why Lenovo have just launched the Ideapad Yoga 11S with a “new low power lineup from Intel”. Could this be one of the new low-power Core CPUs?

Update: Yes. See this article.

SnapShot (2)The Yoga wasn’t my favorite Ultrabook of 2012 but it was incredibly popular when we wrote about it. Over on YouTube it was our most-watched video of 2012. We got hands-on with the Lenovo Yoga at CES 2012 and exactly one year later it’s in our hands for review. [Follow closely for teasers of 3rd generation Ultrabooks next week as we cover CES 2013.] Here’s a quick unboxing video just to prove it’s here in the studio. We’ll produce a first impressions, detailed review and for those on the cusp of buying one, a live review session where you can ask your own questions. Feel free to start listing those below.
