I’m a Lenovo convert. I still use my first Lenovo netbook – IdeaPad S9e whenever I need to travel and can only afford to bring along a compact laptop. So imagine my excitement when I was invited to Lenovo’s launch of their new Yoga series.
Local celebrity, Nat Ho was there to introduce the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga series. It’s the world’s first multi-mode Ultrabook with 360° flip design, providing users with the ultimate flexibility between work and play. The revolutionary hinge design allows it to rotate 360° (available in four different modes – Laptop, Tent, Stand and Tablet) switching between laptop and tablet in one simple motion.

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist S230u
Weighing at 1.58kg, this Ultrabook is ideal for the business computing. Users can use it as a full performance Ultrabook and then twist the top to switch to become a convertible tablet. Excellent for business presentation.
The 12.5″ Lenovo ThinkPad Twist S230u gives professionals the technologies they need for both business and personal use. It features up to 3rd gen Intel Core i7 processors, up to Windows 8 Pro, large storage up to 500GB and the ThinkPad’s legendary keyboard, quality and reliability features. Users can work for hours on-the-go with nearly all-day battery life and table-like quick resume from standby.
This ThinkPad also includes dedicated software tools that provide added security and manageability features, including Lenovo Solutions for Small Business powered by Intel Small Business Advantage. Its high definition IPS dispay and stereo speakers make it the device you need to add a magical touch to your presentation.
This tablet uses Intel Atom™ Z2760 (Dual Core) processor. The Lenovo Tablet 2 runs on Windows 8 x86 (32-bit) with HSPA+ connectivity and IPS display. There are options like the multi-finger touch support, pen input or the ability to connect to the optional ThinkPad Tablet 2 keyboard and dock for a PC-like computing experience.
