January 12, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Among the slew of products that were unwrapped at CES, Lenovo’s IdeaPad YOGA stands out with some awesome features. This new amazing product may be seen as a tablet/ultrabook hybrid.

The IdeaPad YOGA sports a 13.3-inch HD screen with a resolution of 1600 x 900. The display panel comes with the 10-point capacity touch technology.

The ultra-portable notebook can be easily converted into a tablet since it comes with a 360 degree flip-and-fold design, making it possible for users to enjoy content by viewing it from suitable positions.

It is equipped with 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD of built-in storage and a battery with 8 hours back up. It runs Windows 8 and is powered by Intel’s Core (i3, i5 and i7) processor.

The new Lenovo rig comes packed with USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, full SD card slot and HDMI port.  The device weighs only 3.1 pounds and measures 0.67-inch in thickness and is being touted as ideal for business users too.

When in laptop mode, the leather palm rest has been integrated to make it comfortable for the wrists, as we had earlier seen on the IdeaPad U260. This feature helps protect the keyboard while in the stand mode or laid on a table or desk. Along with the chiclet keyboard, the device also sports a large ClickPad.

IdeaPad YOGA will be launched around the second half of 2012, only after the release of Windows 8 operating system.

The $1,199 priced hybrid device will be available in black color.

Here is a demo of the IdeaPad YOGA , which shows its four different modes: tablet, notebook, stand and tent.

Tell us if you would want to rush to stores as soon as it arrives this year.
