The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Convertible Ultrabook: Flexibility on the go

As you move through the day you have to be flexible; there’s a ton of stuff to do while you're on the go, and finding a single laptop that fits into every part of your life is a stretch. What if there was a portable computer that could bend and flex, just like you? That’s where the Lenovo Yoga 13 Convertible comes in. This four-mode wonder is a versatile, fast, powerful Ultrabook that's ready for action every day, no matter what you throw at it.


What do I mean by four modes? Well, the Yoga is unique in that it’s super flexible. Sure, it can sit there like a normal laptop, with its keyboard laid out flat and its screen facing you. As such, it has a responsive trackpad, a 13” high-definition screen, 128GB of fast SSD storage, and an Intel processor powering Windows 8 for all your daily tasks.


But it’s when you start to bend it around that the Yoga really starts to shine. From Laptop mode you can push the screen back all the way to lie flat - and then keep going! With the keyboard face down you’re in Stand Mode, which is great for watching movies and giving presentations. It’s ideal for business users.


Flip it up on its edges and you’ve got Tent mode. You can stand it up like this, or even hang it over the back of a chair. It’s a clever way to view its beautiful 13.3” screen without having to give up your desktop real estate. It’s especially handy in the kitchen or in smaller workspaces.


Finally, push that screen all the way back around and you’ve got Tablet mode. The Yoga will automatically shut off the keyboard in this mode, ensuring that you’re only getting the input that you want. Students will love this mode; it’s great for reading, sketching, and taking notes.


The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Convertible is a smart new type of Ultrabook that does more in more places. It's available at Staples stores across Canada, and online at
