CES: Lenovo shows off Yoga; Windows 8 tablet/notebook Today at CES, Lenovo showed of their aptly named Yoga tablet/notebook hybrid, which runs on the upcoming Windows 8 operating system.
The IdeaPad Yoga is a 13.3-inch notebook that, when flipped, can be used as a standalone tablet.

Although there is not too much known about what the computer's final hardware will be, it is apparently just 0.67-inches thick and made to look like Lenovo's current IdeaPad U300 line. Lenovo says the laptop can be easily flipped to look like a tablet for made to stand V-shaped in "tent" mode, as seen in the pics. The device is very light at just 3.1 pounds.

Additionally, the display is 1600 x 900-resolution and the current prototype has an i7 processor.

Lenovo will release the hybrid soon after Windows 8 launches this fall, with a price tag of $1200.
