One of the big themes with this touch-centric Windows release is touchscreens on everything including Ultrabooks, tablets with keyboard docks, or new all-in-one convertible PCs.

Similar to its larger counterpart, the IdeaPad Yoga 11 can fold backwards from a standard laptop clamshell into a tablet.

The tablet features an 11.6-inch screen with 1366-by-768 resolution, Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, up to 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD storage.
