Yoga 11

by Volker Weber

I have been very much looking forward to this machine. It's a Windows RT device, much like the Microsoft Surface. Over the next four weeks I will try to find out if it can replace an iPad. It feels right. There is only one immediate problem. Look at the last photo.

Uh, that is definitely a problem. I takes away all the benefits from the design when you have to carry such a waste with you.

Whether you have to carry that, we don't know yet.

On the second picture, is the keyboard at the bottom if folded that way, i.e. folded over? How does that work when you put it on your lap or another uneven surface, how does it avoid accidental keystrokes?

Yes it is. When you fold more than 180 degrees, they keyboard and touchpad are disabled.

Könntest Du mal ein Vergleichfoto mit dem iPad machen.? Ggf. zusammen mit der Logitech Keyboard-Kombi? Ich habe überhaupt kein Gefühl für die Größe dieses Yoga.

Thanks for the explanation Volker. Thinking about it, I guess that also means it probably should only be rested on a quite clean surface to avoid getting dirt into the keyboard.

Endlich mal ein Gerät mit eigenem Design und nicht nur bei iPad und MacBook (Air) abgeschaut. Ich bin gespannt.

Armin, so fallen keine Krümel rein. :-) Außerdem sind Tastaturen so ziemlich die dreckigsten Oberflächen, die es gibt.

Win RT? Darn. I have been watching this machine & wanting it, but I want the full Windows experience.

Amy Blumenfield, 2012-12-07 18:33

Amy, there is a 13" Yoga with the full Windows experience. Including half the battery life and the weight of a notebook. I don't want that.
