Overall: I had purchased Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11 RT after a lot of research. The price was drastically reduced by Lenovo because the sale of RT device was not picking up, the reason being it is different than conventional computers using widows x86 architecture. It is using Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor which often used in mobiles. It has ARM architecture. You cannot install third party software on this device, this has only 32/64 GB memory. But if your requirement is limited I can assure you it is the best device. I choose it because-
1. I use only MS office which is given free with this device.
2. I watch HD movies and videos and for that it is excellent with stereo sound.
3. I surf net and it has an excellent IE10 browser.
4. The battery last for 11-13 hours at a stretch ie when you are using device for continuous watching videos, connected with wifi.
5. Battery takes hardly an hour to charge upto 90%.
6. Touch pad screen is marvelous
7. you can install hindi fonts easily.
8. language pack is free.
9. You can comfortably use this laptop in four positions, it can be folded at 360 degrees to act as a tablet.
10. Is very sleek weighing only 1.27 kg.
11. Can use Skype for video talk as it has got a good camera.
12. Can open two windows side by side simultaneously ie if you have to write down some thing from net you can open one window at IE10 and another on MS World.
13. Has two USB port, card reader, HDMI port, Bluetooth.
14 You don't have to shut down it it just goes to sleep and wakes up in no time.
15. Excellent defense provided by Microsoft, there is no virus threat.
16. Has a cloud storage in skydrive.
17. Thousands of free/ paid softwares for RT are available in Microsoft store.
18. The keyboard is very nice with smooth keys, touch pad key board has many configurations such as you can split it to 3 parts in which one part contains only numeric pad that way it helps if you are working with excel spread sheet.
19. No noise, no heating.
20. Excellent carry case.
This is the best device I have ever used. I am having dell inspiron i3 third generation laptop, acer atom powered laptop, galaxy note, galaxy tab and kindle.
But if you need heavy software like photo- shop, auto-cad or any other third party software or if you are an ardent gamer then of course this is not for you.
