Lenovo has certainly been busy preparing quite a few Windows 8 devices in time for CES 2013. Now the company has announced the Yoga 11S and the ThinkPad Helix.

Lenovo Yoga 11S

First up, the Yoga 11S is basically the Windows 8 version of the ARM-based Yoga 11. This guy is a three pound Ultrabook with an 11.6-inch screen and a touchscreen. Like other Yoga devices, it is an ultrabook or can be flipped around and used asd a tablet.

The 11S features Intel Core i5 processors and weighs in at 3 pounds. It also supports up to 256GB of SSD storage and 8GB of RAM. The starting price will be $799 and it will arrive in June.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix

As for the Thinkpad Helix? This is also an 11.6-inch convertible, but it actually can detach from its laptop base and become a full tablet. The Helix has a battery life of 5 hours in tablet mode, or 10 hours when attached to the laptop/keyboard base.

As for processing power, you get Core i7 here, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB SSD. There is also a digitizer pen, which is nice for those with a niche use for such a thing. This is obviously a lot more expensive than the Yoga 11S– starting at $1,499.

Lenovo IdeaCentre

More interested in an all-in-one PC? The IdeaCentre A730 is a 27-inch PC with a resolution of 1920×1080. If you want more detail than that, there is also an optional 2560×1440 variant.

The All-in-One will start at $1,499 and will arrive in full-touch glory. Yes, it looks a bit like an iMac, but its touch-capabilities make it a sexy, powerful Windows 8 alternative.

Lenovo ThinkVision LT1423P

Last but not least, Lenovo is also releasing a unique mobile monitor, the ThinkVision LT1423p. This 13.3-inch 1600×900 touchscreen is designed to work with your PC to provide a second screen Windows 8 experience. This is perfect for lounging around the house with full-touch abilities of Windows 8.

The bad news is that I think it is way too expensive to be successful. At $349 for a wired version or $49 for wireless– you can almost buy a Windows RT tablet for the same price as this screen. The idea of a second screen that streams content from my desktop sounds pretty cool, but only if it was around $250 or less, at least in my opinion.

What do you think of these latest products from Lenovo, interested in any of them or not?

      I really like Lenovo. They’ve certainly up’d their game in recent times that much is clear– at least in my humble opinion.
