Base unit to carry $1900 price tag

Lenovo UK has provided firm pricing for its soon to be released crossover IdeaPad Yoga. The entry level Core i5 powered tablet/ultrabook will hit stores at £1,199 ($1,900 USD), while a higher-end Core i7 equipped version will be priced at £1,499 ($2,380 USD). When the company let us test the Yoga at CES back in January, the device carried a lone American starting price of $1,199.

With the Yoga, Lenovo is trying to target both the tablet and ultrabook markets with a single device. The Yoga is only 0.67 inches thick and weighs in at 3.1 pounds. The 13-inch, 1600x900 display is larger than normal for a tablet footprint, but it incorporates a unique 360-degree hinge than allows it to fold back onto the keyboard component, or use the keyboard portion as a stand. The Yoga will be equipped with a 256GB SSD drive and 8GB of RAM. The processor is expected to be either a 3rd-generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i5 or Core i7.

Lenovo has hinted that the IdeaPad Yoga will run Windows 8, although it hasn't indicated if the PC will ship with the new OS preloaded, or if it will ship with Windows 7 and then be updated later. Lenovo hasn't given an official availability date for the Yoga. [via Engadget]
