Lenovo Yoga Convertible Laptop-Tablet To Have Windows 8 RT

Posted Aug 10, 2012

Lenovo is getting close to releasing a consumer tablet including the IdeaPad Yoga, which was announced at CES in Las Vegas.  The Yoga has a unique design and it looks like a regular laptop until you fold the screen backwards to turn it into a tablet.

The Yoga is expected to arrive around the time of the general availability of Windows 8 (October 26).

There will be two types of the Yoga – one with an Intel processor and one with an ARM NVIDIA Tegra processor.  The ARM version will have double the battery life to the Intel version.

Windows RT tablets based on ARM will not have the same access to all of the same legacy applications as all other laptops that run on Windows 8.
