Lenovo Yoga 13 was accorded with Best Ultrabook title in CES 2012, but the show is not yet over as Lenovo is all set to release a new version of Yoga 11, again a convertible which will feature Windows 8 instead of RT as was seen in Yoga 11. In my opinion to have an awesome experience of a Tablet with a Laptop, you should try any one of the Yoga line-up.
