Lenovo today introduced what may be one of the year’s most innovative PCs – the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 – a new, slim device that’s as flexible as its name implies.

Early peeks at the Yoga’s design have already garnered it a lot of attention. The 11-inch device, powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3, can be adjusted into four positions from tablet to notebook, with several in between. Yoga 11’s super-thin 15.6mm frame (just 0.6 of an inch), along with its stunning 13 hours of battery life, make it amazingly mobile.

The Yoga is all about flexibility. It features an innovative hinge that allows its screen to quickly swivel 360 degrees from its base, folding from a laptop to a tablet in one quick motion. It can also change into two other modes. “Stand” mode is great for interacting with and displaying content, such as viewing pictures or movies. And “Tent” mode is perfect for playing games and video chatting

The Yoga 11’s brilliant graphics and all-day battery life come courtesy of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 – the only quad-core processor for Windows RT. Yoga 11 lets users stay entertained, connected and productive without sacrificing battery life. From console-quality games, fast web surfing and HD videos to Microsoft Office RT applications like Word, PowerPoint and Excel — Yoga does it all.

While the Tegra 3 mobile processor provides the necessary graphics muscle, it does so efficiently. That’s because Tegra 3 dynamically switches between lower power for everyday apps – like emails and messaging – and full quad-core processing for more demanding tasks such as gaming, video editing, and navigating 3D maps.

With the arrival of breakthrough devices like the Yoga 11, PC users can experience the revolutionary change sweeping through mobile computing. We’re proud to work with industry leaders like Lenovo to help fuel that change.

This marks the third official Windows RT system that will be powered by an NVIDIA processor.
