Lenovo is releasing its first Windows 8 tablet in both Intel-powered version and ARM system. Described as a laptop hybrid, the Lenovo Yoga tablet is predicted to arrive side by side with the launching of Microsoft’s Windows 8. The Windows 8 RT version is said to be tablet-friendly as it will have lower power but will have twice the fun out of its battery life. This made the Lenovo Yoga tablet a must-have device especially for those who are always on the road or are usually deprived of power charging outlets.
The ultra-thin laptop flaunts a rotating touchscreen of 13.1 inches which when flipped around, transforms itself from the traditional Windows PC mode to the modern touch-friendly UI of Metro. Lenovo is definitely fascinated with the convertible feature of laptops and has added more flair to the technology by equipping it with two processor options. Of course, the Chinese manufacturer has no plans of spoiling the mystery yet by revealing which processor is better than the other.
In reality, Microsoft’s Windows 8 will come in three versions namely Windows RT for ARM-based processors and Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 for AMD and x86 Intel processors. The Windows 8 RT will officially run the software either as a Windows Store acquisition or a Windows RT (Runtime) inclusion. The term “runtime” means a collection of APIs that enable developers to author software which can interact both with the hardware and each other. The Lenovo Yoga tablet features SSD of 256GB, RAM of 8GB, weight of 1.47kg and thickness of 16.9mm. It will have a release event on the last week of October this year.
