The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga was unveiled at CES 2012 earlier this year, which is designed as a multimode notebook PC with four intuitive usage modes – laptop, tablet, stand and tent. While pricing and availability details were not announced then, it seems that Lenovo UK has recently revealed the price to be £1,200 (approximately US$1,900).
At a press conference in UK, Lenovo, the world's second largest PC manufacturer, has announced the retail price of their laptops incorporating Intel's IvyBridge platform, including the versatile IdeaPad Yoga. Even though we already know what Lenovo's future focus is, it is normal that the news did not report about their ThinkPad.
– IdeaPad YOGA from £1,199 (US$1,900)
– IdeaCentre A720 from £1,299 (US$2,060)
– Lenovo G Series laptops from £349 (US$550)
– IdeaPad S Series laptops from £299 (US$470)
– IdeaPad Z Series laptops from £429 (US$680)
– IdeaPad U Series laptops from £599 (US$950)
– IdeaCentre B Series AIOs from £549 (US$870)
The UK and even Europe suggested retail price would be significantly higher, and it does not mean that the pricing in other countries would be that. There's still no word as to when the products will go to market, but we believed once Intel's IvyBridge embargo has been lifted, we would see them in retail stores soon after. According to reliable sources, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga will go to market on the new Windows 8 operating system.
