Peter Hortensius, senior vice president, Lenovo said: "Our family of Ultrabook convertibles addresses the unique needs of consumers, businesses and everyone in between by creating high performance laptop-tablet combinations in new designs and different sizes,"

We've been aware of the IdeaPad Yoga in its 13in form for a while, a hybrid touchscreen laptop which can fold into a tablet thanks to its 360 degree hinge. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 will come with an Intel Ivy Bridge processor while the IdeaPad Yoga 11 is nVidia Tegra 3 powered. The pair will come with Windows 8 and Windows RT, respectively priced at £999 and £699.

For business users there is the ThinkPad Twist which has a 12.5in IPS screen which swivels to turn the device from an Ultrabook to a tablet. Users can choose up to Windows 8 Pro, an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 and an SSD. Prices start at £809 excluding VAT.

"We think these innovative convertibles are the best devices for a groundbreaking touchscreen experience, plus their multi-modes give people even more ways to use their PC." added Hortensius.
