CES 2012: Video of Lenovo “Yoga” folding Windows 8 laptop

LAS VEGAS — PC makers are starting to show off their cool new Windows 8 hardware here at CES.

They’re also showing a ton of Android-based tablets that look like potentially nice Windows 8 systems, but the companies I’ve talked to so far aren’t saying much about upgrade plans.

Here’s a look at a Lenovo Windows 8 Ultrabook laptop dubbed “Yoga” because it bends backwards. The display folds all the way to the back of the case, with a special 360-degree hinge, turning the system into a sort of tablet.

With the lid partly open, the laptop can be stood up in “tent mode” to watch a movie on the display.

The IdeaPad Yoga has a 13.1-inch display, is 0.67 inches thick, weighs 3.1 pounds and can run for eight hours on a charge, according to Lenovo. It uses a solid-state hard drive and will come with up to 256 gigabytes of storage capacity.

It will cost about $1,200 when it goes on sale later this year, after Windows 8 releases. Inside it runs the next generation of Intel mobile PC hardware.

Here’s Lenovo’s Zheng Gao demonstrating the folding cover:
