Meet Yoga, Lynx and Twist, Lenovo’s Windows 8 convertibles

Lenovo today announced details of its upcoming line of Windows 8 convertibles, including the bendy Yoga model that was a hit at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

The Yoga has a hinged lid that flips the 16.9-millimeter-thick laptop display 360 degrees, so it can fold into a tablet with the touchscreen display facing up.

It’s going on sale Oct. 26 for $1,099 for a model with a 13.3-inch display. It has third-generation Intel Core processors and a purported eight hours of battery life. An 11.6-inch model (below) with an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor goes on sale in December for $799.

Lenovo also is launching the ThinkPad Twist, a 12.5-inch laptop with a display that rotates and folds down, turning it into a tablet. It has Core processors and goes on sale Oct. 26, starting at $849.

Another convertible in Lenovo’s holiday lineup is the IdeaTab Lynx. It’s an 11.6-inch tablet that docks with a keyboard, turning it into a laptop. The Lynx has an 11.6-inch display, an Intel Atom processor and 16 hour of battery life. It’s going on sale in December for $599, plus $149 for the optional keyboard.

Lenovo also is releasing a Windows 8 tablet, called the ThinkPad Tablet 2, with Intel processors, a 10-hour battery life and 3G and 4G wireless. The 1.3-pound slabwill start at $649 when it goes on sale in November. It’s handsome but the convertibles look much more fun.
