Lenovo introduced the Yoga 11 convertible notebook tablet at a press event in New York this evening. The 11.6″ notebook features a dual-hinge design that allows the display to fold back 360-degrees and convert into a tablet.
Lenovo is refreshing its notebook product line just in time for Microsoft's Windows 8 consumer release, which is slated for an October 26th release. The Yoga 11 runs Windows 8 RT, a lighter version of Microsoft's new operating system that's optimized for mobile platforms.
The Yoga 11 is nearly identical in appearance to the Yoga 13, its 13.3″ brethren. However, the Yoga 11 relies on a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor rather than an Intel Core processor. Until now Tegra 3 processors have typically appeared in tablets, such as the Google Nexus 7, an Android 4.1 device. The power-sipping Tegra 3 helps the Yoga 13 run for up to 13 hours on a single charge.
