In case you haven’t been drooling over the tiny Yoga 11S Ultrabook since CES, Lenovo just released a teaser that gives a sense of the convertible device’s ability to morph into different shapes, depending on your needs.
The spot features dancers from THE SILHOUETTES dance company, dressed in all black against a white background, creating shapes – like a tree, a car, street lamps – with their bodies and with each other. You actually don’t get to see an image of the Yoga 11S at all. In fact, the closest you get is seeing the Yoga in silhouette when the four dancers look like they’re sitting on a plane and are using the device in its four different modes (tablet, tent, laptop, and display mode).
Since the Yoga 11S is basically just a tinier version of the IdeaPad Yoga 13 and Windows RT-running Yoga 11 that were introduced last October, Lenovo probably feels it doesn’t need to hit you over the head with what its line of IdeaPad Yoga Ultrabooks are all about. With an 11.6-inch touch display that comes in 1366 x 768 or 1600 x 900 pixel resolution, the Yoga 11S is one of the few “mini-Ultrabooks” that runs full Windows 8 (the 12-inch Asus VivoBook X202E being the other). The $800 base model uses the i3 chip, 4GB RAM, 128 GB SSD and 1366 x 768 screen. You’ll also be able to customize the Yoga 11S’ third-generation Intel processor (choice of Core i3 to i7), as well as increase the RAM to 8GB and upgrade the solid-state drive to 256GB. The Yoga 11S is available in Clementine Orange, silver, and black.
As we reported earlier this month, you can already pre-order the Yoga 11S from Lenovo and Best Buy, but it won’t be shipping for at least four weeks, according to Lenovo’s estimate. If you prefer to try the Ultrabook in person before buying, you’ll want to wait until June 23 to find a Yoga 11S at a Best Buy near you.
