No, this is not a Microsoft Surface. This is a Lenovo Yoga 11. It runs on the same software as Microsoft Surface. And it's a device I am really looking forward to.
I tried the Surface for a bit last week, and I wasn't as impressed as I had hoped to be. While I generally like the software, the device was slow. Just opening your mail folder takes quite a while. The screen is too wide and low for web browsing, or it feels really awkward in portrait mode. It's quite heavy and does not feel right in your hand. The kickstand is nice, but you can't really use it as a laptop. My iPad combined with a Logitech keyboard is much more capable.
While I wish I had more time to get accustomed with Surface, I am now looking forward to trying out the Yoga. That is a unique design combining a tablet with a notebook. I could see myself using it at conferences next year and leaving the iPad behind. But first, I have to have one. ;-)
Der Yogi mit dem Yoga, da sind wir ja mal gespannt.
Einer meiner Freunde hat sich letzte Woche ein Surface geholt und ist bisher damit recht zufrieden. Allerdings arbeitet er auch bei Microsoft und lebt in einer nahezu puren Microsoft-Umgebung. Das vertraute Benutzerparadigma...
Nettes Konzept, aber ich denke die Tabletfunktion ist genau wie bei den Convertibles durch das relativ hohe Gewicht eingeschränkt.
Was aber jedenfalls mehr Sinn macht ist der Verzicht auf ein grässliches Drehgelenk, das alleine hebt es wiederum positiv von den anderen Convertibles ab.
Mal sehen, vielleicht findet sich bald eines in Reichweite, bin mindestens so gespannt wie Volker ;)
oder was für iPAD

Any comments on this zdnet complaint?
That is a Yoga 13. An Intel PC. I'm not interested in a PC. The Yoga 11 is a Windows RT machine. MUCH longer battery life for instance.
you stopped allowing links in comments? Schade.. What about adding "nofollow"?
"the device was slow" - curious if this one will feel faster.
I am generally looking forward to an Intel Convertible Ultrabook as the leonovo 13" Thanks to Oswald, I was not aware of the issues regarding the SSD. There seems to be a workaround for now: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-IdeaTab-Slate-Tablets/Ideapad-Yoga-hard-disk-allocation/m-p/913425#M13007 But hopefully Lenovo will react and fix it with the new machines.
There will be two versions at shipment start, a 128 and 256 GB 13 inch Yoga.
Andre, I have used "nofollow" for a long time. Spammers were still placing links on the site at an increasing rate. For a while I could block them by IP but then they started to use proxys and terminal servers closer to home. There were two possible solutions:
1. Close comments
2. Do not allow links in comments
For now I have chosen option 2.
A notebook/tablet is not a particularly new breed. Such things have existed in the Android world for a couple of years now. The people I know who got them rave about them, I just can't see myself using one.
That Asus device contains two batteries, one in the keyboard and one in the screen, giving it much longer use time.
I'm sure you know all this and have forgotten it :)
