IdeaPad (stylized as ideapad) is a line of consumer-oriented laptop computers from Lenovo. The IdeaPad mainly competes against computers such as Acer's Aspire, Dell's Inspiron and XPS, HP's Pavilion and Envy and Toshiba's Satellite.

History[edit]

The IdeaPad laptops were announced in January 2008.[1] The first three models in the product line were the Y710, the Y510, and the U110. Some of the features that defined these first three models were widescreens, VeriFace facial recognition, frameless screens, touch controls, and Dolby speaker systems.[1]

The IdeaPad design marked a deviation from the business-oriented ThinkPad laptops, towards a more consumer-oriented look and feel.[2] Among these changes were a glossy screen and the absence of the traditional ThinkPad TrackPoint.[3] Notebook Review said the keyboard had a ‘"distinctive ThinkPad feel" and "the touchpad and touchpad buttons were smooth and responsive."[4]

On September 21, 2016, Lenovo confirmed that their Yoga series is not meant to be compatible with Linux operating systems, that they know it is impossible to install Linux on some models, and that it is not supported.[5] This came in the wake of media coverage of problems that users were having while trying to install Ubuntu on several Yoga models, including the 900 ISK2, 900 ISK For Business, 900S, and 710, which were traced back to Lenovo intentionally disabling and removing support for the AHCI storage mode for the device's solid-state drive in the computer's BIOS, in favor of a RAID mode that is only supported by Windows 10 drivers that come with the system. (This is also noted to make creation of Windows installation media more difficult than it normally is, as the process requires extracting a storage driver and loading it during the Windows installation process, or else the installer will not see the SSD.)[6][7][8][9]

Miix series[edit]

Miix 700[edit]

The IdeaPad Miix 700 is a hybrid device with a detachable soft keyboard cover, stylus, and kickstand. The kickstand is designed for multiple positions and allows the display height and angle to be adjusted. The Miix has a 2160 by 1440 pixel multitouch IPS display. The Miix 700 has one USB 3.0 port, one USB 2.0 port, a micro-HDMI port for video and audio out, a slot for LTE or 3G cellular data SIM cards, a MicroSD card slot for user expandable storage, and a combined headphone/microphone jack.[10]

Business Edition[edit]

The Business Edition is a variant of the Miix 700. It is also a hybrid device with a 1440p display. It weighs 3.2 pounds with the keyboard attached. It is available with various Intel Core M processors with the most powerful being the Core m7. It comes with as much as 8 gigabytes of RAM and a 256-gigabyte SATA solid state drive. The main feature that distinguishes the Business Edition from the standard Miix 700 is its Trusted Platform Module chip that works with bundled software to provide "enterprise-level" security.[11]

MIIX 300[edit]

Lenovo unveiled a Windows 8.1 tablet at Mobile World Congress, called the IdeaPad MIIX 300. It is a mid-size tablet, weighing at 0.8 lbs. (360 g), 0.4 inches (9.3 mm) thick, and length and width will be 5.1 × 8.5 in. (130 × 215 mm). According to preliminary reviews, other features include pixel density of about 188 ppi and has an IPS screen which supports wide viewing angles. It has a micro-USB port and an on-screen Windows button. Powered by a quad-core Atom Bay Trail chip, the MIIX 300 will provide 2 GB of RAM, and internal storage capacity will top out at 64 GB. It will come with Windows 8.1 with Bing and a year’s subscription to Office 365. Battery life is around 7 hours for a single charge.[12]

MIIX 310[edit]

The MIIX 310 is a Windows 10 tablet with a detachable keyboard. It has an Intel Atom X5 8300 processor with integrated graphics. 128 gigabytes of eMMC internal storage come standard. A 1080p display, cellular data in the form of 4G LTE, extra memory up to 2 gigabytes are available as upgrades. Lenovo claims the device achieves ten hours of battery life. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi comes standard.[13]

Flex series[edit]

IdeaPad Flex 14[edit]

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 14 is a dual-mode laptop with a 14-inch screen. Its keyboard rotates behind the screen in order to put the device into "stand mode." Stand mode brings the user closer to the screen for watching videos and using touch-enabled apps and removes the visual distraction from the keyboard.[23] Unlike the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga line of devices the keyboard does not bend back entirely to allow use as a tablet. Like other Lenovo devices such as the Yoga, the Flex has a matte, smooth lid that tapers slightly at the sides with a Lenovo logo in the upper left corner. Some models have orange accents, a feature often found in Lenovo's designs. Rubber bumpers prevent the screen from being rotated beyond 300 degrees and prevent the keyboard from contacting the table.[24]

IdeaPad Flex 10[edit]

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10 is dual-mode laptop with a 10-inch screen. It gets its name from its lid that can fold back flat and then around 300 degrees.[25] The Flex 10's display features multitouch capability and has a resolution of 1366×768. Buyers can select configurations with the quad-core Intel Pentium N3510, the quad-core Celeron N2910, the dual-core Celeron N2810, or the dual=core Celeron N2805. The Pentium configuration can hold up to 4 gigabytes of RAM and the Celeron configurations can hold 2 gigabytes. The Flex 10 shares the same basic ports and design as the Flex 15 and the IdeaPad A10.[26]

According to a review from NDTV Gadgets, “It's clear that Lenovo allocated most of this device's cost to its more visible features. In terms of functionality, it is best thought of as a modern-day netbook: good enough for surfing the Web, creating basic documents and watching movies now and then, but not suitable for any serious work.”[25]


Ideapad Yoga series[edit]

Ideapad Yoga is a obsolete derivative of a Ideapad line. But currently, after producing a few shared laptop models, the Yoga line was divided into a different market niche.

IdeaPad Yoga 13[edit]

Various configurations possible with the Yoga 11S and Yoga 13

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is a hybrid notebook/tablet computer created by Lenovo and first announced at the International CES 2012 in January. The 13-inch Yoga was released by Lenovo on Oct. 26, 2012 at a price of $1,099. Best Buy released an alternative version of the Yoga 13 with an Intel Core i5 processor (vs. Lenovo's base model's i3 processor) and no Microsoft Office (whereas Lenovo's base model includes Microsoft Office). Its smaller cousin, Yoga 11, which runs Windows RT (as opposed to the Yoga 13, running Windows 8), was released in December 2012 for $799.[27][28] With products such as Yoga 11 and 13, Lenovo has been able to take more than 40% of the American retail market of computers priced at least $900 that run Microsoft's Windows 8.[29]

In an editors' review, CNET stated that, "The Yoga works best as a full-time laptop and part-time tablet, because when it's folded back into a slate, you still have the keyboard pointing out from the back of the system. Although the keyboard and touch pad are deactivated in this mode, it's still not ideal. Plus, despite the hype, Windows 8 is still not a 100-percent tablet-friendly OS, and there are some frustrations that span all the Windows 8 tablet-style devices we've tested. The Yoga certainly seems to be everyone's choice for a great Windows 8 ambassador – both Microsoft and Intel have touted it as a best-in-class example, and Best Buy is currently featuring it in a television ad." [30]

IdeaPad Yoga 11[edit]

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a hybrid laptop/tablet Windows RT based computer released in late 2012. The Yoga 11 and Yoga 13 computers both get their names from their unique design that enables the devices to rotate their screen backwards to become tablet devices. According to PC Pro, "The hybrid design is immensely flexible. Prop the Yoga 11 up in 'tent mode', and the touchscreen can be angled just so. Lay the keyboard facing the desk, and the screen can be tilted back and forth while sturdy-feeling hinges keep the display from flopping backwards. Fold the screen all the way back, and hidden magnets hold it clamped shut against the underside, transforming it into a tablet." [31] The Yoga 11 has slim chassis with a matte orange exterior finish and an all-black interior that weighs 2.79 pounds. It has a full-size QWERTY keyboard. According to TechRadar, the "large, well-cushioned keys offer a far better experience than Microsoft Surface, and there's a large trackpad as well." [32]

The Yoga 11 is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 that runs at a maximum clockspeed of 1.3 GHz and features an integrated graphics processor. The Tegra 3 is also found in numerous Android-based tablets. 2 GB of RAM comes standard. This relatively small amount of RAM is sufficient due to the reduced memory requirements of Windows RT applications. The Yoga 11 is sold with solid-state drives in 32 GB and 64 GB capacities. The Yoga 11 runs the Windows RT operating system. Microsoft Office 2013 ships pre-installed.[32] Like all Windows RT devices, the Yoga 11 cannot run software designed for earlier versions of Windows, only apps designed for the new Metro interface are compatible.[33] The Yoga 11 has an 11.6-inch glossy screen that makes use of in-plane switching technology and runs at a resolution of 1366×768. The screen has a maximum brightness of only 344 nits, but has a measured contrast ratio of 1,146:1. There two USB 2.0 ports, an SD card reader, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a standard HDMI output. There is a built-in 720P webcam.

In its review TechRadar stated, "The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 is a stylish, lightweight and durable laptop that neatly doubles as a tablet. At 11 inches, it's portable and thin enough to be used in tablet form, but like its bigger brother, having the keys on the reverse affecting your grip makes it far from ideal.If you're looking for a laptop form factor for work, which doubles as a tablet for basic apps and sofa surfing, then the Yoga 11 is worth serious consideration, although we'd advise you to head to your nearest PC superstore to give it the once over. It's not for everyone, and we'd primarily recommend it to someone looking for a small Windows 8 laptop who doesn't want to miss out on enjoying all the touchscreen goodness that Windows 8 has to offer." [32]

IdeaPad Yoga 11S[edit]

The IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a compact ultralight hybrid notebook/tablet computer scheduled for release in 2013. Like the Yoga 13 and the Yoga 11 the Yoga 11S gets its name from its ability to take on various form factors due to its screen being mounted on a special two-way hinge. The Yoga 11S runs the full version of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system.[34] The Yoga 11s will ship in the United States in June 2013 with a starting price of $799.[33][34]

Like other models in the IdeaPad Yoga line, the Yoga 11S has a convertible form factor. Its screen can flip into a range of positions that allow it to serve as a regular laptop and tablet device as well as being able to function in "tent mode" and "stand mode." [34] Like the Yoga 11, the 11S will be available in silver and clementine orange.[35] The Yoga 11S can be configured with processors as powerful as Intel's "Ivy Bridge" Core i7 processor, will support up to a 256 GB solid-state drive, and can hold as much as 8 GB of RAM. The Yoga 11S has an 11.6" display. Displays will be available with options for resolutions of 1366×768 pixels and 1600×900 pixels.[34]

CNET writes, "The 11-inch Yoga – Lenovo's clever laptop/tablet hybrid – had a great physical design, but ran the lame Windows RT operating system. The 13-inch Yoga ran full Windows 8, but was a bit too large for tablet duties. The upcoming Yoga 11S may be the "just right" marriage of the two: the smaller and lighter 11-inch chassis, but running full Windows 8 – while still keeping the unique folding design." [36]

The IdeaPad Yoga Tablet is an Android tablet with a multi-mode device with a rear kickstand designed to allow it to be placed upright for viewing videos and other media or tilted for easier text entry. The Yoga Tablet has a round battery that can last as long as 18 hours. It comes in models with 10-inch and 8-inch screens. Internal storage varies from 16 gigabytes to 32 gigabytes.[37]

An upgraded version was added in February 2014, called Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+, which featured a Full HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

Currently a combined Ideapad Yoga line was discontinued, and Lenovo Yoga brand is now an actual self-standing product line.

Customers that pre-ordered the S10 were expecting it to be released on 9 September. However, some buyers have been tracking the status of their order and have noticed that the status was not updating throughout the day. In fact, the order status for pre-orders wasn’t updated by Lenovo until a day after the due release date. The status then showed an expected release date of November 18th.
