    Rugged Construction

    A rubber bumper around the top cover absorbs the force of side bumps. The corners are 50 percent stronger, to reduce damage when dropped at an angle. The bezel is thicker, to protect the LCD panel, and a stronger rear cover reduces accidental LCD damage. The hinges and brackets have been strengthened, to last 50,000 cycles and to withstand more force to the cover. Reinforced ports and a reduced gap between anchored keys help prevent accidental damage from a bored child's exploring fingers. This is one tough machine.

    Multimode Versatility

    Easily change between four modes – Laptop, Stand, Tablet, and Tent – for whatever you choose to do. This device’s unique design and touchscreen display allow the screen to flip 360 degrees, so you can select the mode that best matches your needs at the time.

    Dragontrail® Glass Multitouch Display

    Scratch- and crack-resistant, Dragontrail glass is far tougher than typical soda-lime glass. Six times stronger than conventional glass, a 1.1-millimeter sample can withstand 60 kg (132 lbs) of weight! But it’s still sensitive enough to read your multitouch commands with greater precision and faster response times.

    MIL-SPEC Tested

    Military-specification testing validates the ruggedness, durability, and quality of ThinkPad products by testing against eight parameters: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust.

    ThinkVantage Active Protection System (APS)

    For models with traditional hard drives, an accelerometer detects movement and stops the drive when a fall or similar event is detected. Rubber mounts are used for the hard disk drive (rather than rails) and the HDD connector is not rigidly attached to the board, so the connector absorbs shock and impact and protects against system damage.

    Intel® Education Software

    ThinkPad Yoga 11e can be configured with a suite of education software titles, including Kno Textbooks, ArtRage, and Classroom Management. Intended for use by students and educators alike, the software enables critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and managed focus, truly creating a 21st century learning environment.

    Fast Data Transfer

    Move data between the 11e and other devices quickly with USB 3.0 — it's up to 10 times faster than previous USB technologies and backward-compatible with USB 2.0.

    Integrated HD Webcam

    The low-light-sensitive, 720p HD webcam with face-tracking, plus dual digital-array microphones, will help you enjoy web conferences or online video chats like you're really there.

    Stereo Speakers with Dolby® Advanced Audio™

    This suite of audio technologies enables your ThinkPad to deliver a crisp, clear surround sound experience over its built-in stereo speakers. The technology increases audio clarity for VoIP applications, maximizes volume output without distortion, and improves dialogue clarity when watching videos. Enjoy an immersive surround sound experience whether listening to a lecture or kicking back with a movie.

    Powered USB Port

    Enjoy the benefits of an always-on port, charging your USB devices without having to turn on your laptop.

    HDMI Output

    For easy connection to a television or other display.

    It is quite rigid, well made case, I would not call it a slick design but it looks thinkpad-ish, more or less square edges and straight lines - just the way I like it. Keyboard feels quite solid as well with a nice key feedback, good for touch typing. Very quiet even during heavy load.
    Quite heavy for a laptop of this size but I knew about it before I've purchased it so not complaining. The only little thing that I've noticed is that the monitor lid is quite heavy as well and when you lift the laptop up, the lid falls back flat under its own weight. Battery life could be a bit better but cannot expect too much from machine running intel celeron.

    Good build quality, nice positive keyboard. Reasonably fast start up.
    I can't believe a mainstream company like Lenovo ships laptops with so much annoying adware pre-installed in the browser. I spent unnecessary set-up time uninstalling programs I didn't want, or need.

    - The touch screen.
    - The different viewing configurations.
    - Unwanted 3rd Party programs pop ups.
    - At first setup only given the MicroSoft Updates option of Automatic or No. Would have preferred the additional option of Manually deciding.

    Very lightweight and good battery life.
    Performs better than I expected.
    No light on keypad for hard drive activation or when Caps Lock is pressed. Slight annoying vibration of hard drive is felt on right hand wrist when typing. (it is under the thinkpad sign)

    Good key board. SSD drive combined with RAM upgrade provides really good performance. 11 inch touch screen works really well with windows 8. Build quality is very good. Feels like it will take a knock. The lenovo travel case is excellent and great value.
    The SSD was expensive and not very big (128gb).

    A laptop for serious work and
    a tablet for entertainment.
    No real bad points.

    Love the size, weight, and its very sleek to use for what I use it for - general purpose web browsing, email and the odd document authoring. The touch interface is smooth, I am beginning to enjoy using Windows 8.1. It was very good value for money.
    I have no bad points to share

    ThinkPad Yoga 11e

  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the 11e Yoga Windows

    1. Harry asked on
      Hi there, I was wondering about the trackpad and the screen- does the trackpad perform well when using gestures on windows 8.1/10? And is the screen okay when it comes to colours, I'm not expecting anything amazing but are the colours accurate enough? Many thanks.
      1. Nigel replied on
        The trackpad doesn't perform well. The colours seem to be reasonably accurate.
      2. Mark replied on
        Hey. The trackpad performs fine for certain gestures, but not all of them. The screen is actually pretty good for colour accuracy.
    2. A shopper asked on
      Hi Im a student and im looking at buying one of these laptops, but im a little concerned about the battery life, is it good for everyday tasks like word processing and surfing the web, would i need to take my charger with me if im using it all day.
      1. Katy replied on
        Battery life is ok, but you would definitely need the charger to cover a full days use. It's a brilliant lap top though, well worth the money.
      2. J replied on
        The battery life is good, but if I really needed to work all day, I would take the charger. The charger is pretty small anyway, and the mains lead can unplug from it so it can wrap up neatly. The best way to save battery I have found is to turn the screen brightness down (anything above half is really pretty bright), and set the Intel graphics settings power options to save battery when not plugged in.
    3. A shopper asked on
      how is the performance of this laptop? can it run large games like DOTA 2 and LOL?
      1. J replied on
        It's not really intended as a gaming laptop, and I've not tried running any games.
        The closest review I could find that tested Dota 2 is here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Lenovo-IdeaPad-Yoga-2-11-Convertible.116051.0.html it averages about 30fps on minimum detail. The Yoga 11e has a slightly slower CPU than the yoga IdeaPad in the review, see here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare.php?cmp[]=2255&cmp[]=2123 so I guess the game would run, but would not be very smooth. I don't know about LOL.
        I wouldn't recommend the yoga 11e for gaming. For web browsing, youtube, skype, etc, it's fine. If you want something that's OK for gaming, you probably need to look at something chunkier (the 11e is really very thin and light), or more expensive.
