Manufacturer’s Description

The IdeaPad Yoga 11S, blends the portability of the current Yoga 11 with the raw performance of the original and the larger Yoga 13. It differentiates itself, by running Intel's 3rd generation Core Processors that not only offers performance advantages over its ARM-based Yoga 11 sibling, but is compatible with existing Windows programs that use the traditional Windows desktop.
