Pricing, Summary, and Final Thoughts
Earlier in this review, the IdeaPad Yoga 13 was described as the poor man’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Those were the initial impressions of this reviewer, and a full evaluation has not changed this assertion in any way. However, it is not that much poorer. For a few hundred dollars less than the X1 Carbon you can get a relatively well-built, solid Ultrabook with decent battery life, a good keyboard, and reasonably good specifications.
All in all, the IdeaPad Yoga is not a bad buy for those who want a hybrid Ultrabook/tablet. At the very least it is heads and shoulders above the previously-reviewed HP Envy x2. And while the cost is going to be a little on the steep end, it would still be attractive enough for those on the lookout for an Ultrabook with decent specs and capabilities.
