How would you change Lenovo’s Yoga 11?

Back in the old days, Yoga was all about sitting quietly wearing earth tones, so when Lenovo announced a range of transforming laptops, we were delighted. While the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 was a revelation, the, um, Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 was a significantly more underwhelming proposition. That’s because it was running Windows RT, Microsoft’s poorly-handled attempt to beat Android tablets with an operating system that looked like Windows, but couldn’t run any Windows software. When Dana “The Laptop Lady” Wollman reviewed it, her opinion could be summed up with this single quote: “what good is a Windows laptop without the ability to run legacy x86 apps?” So, what about you, gentle folk of Engadget? Did you buy one? Has the experience improved to the point where you don’t miss your legacy software?

I would like anti glare on screen, as well as make the SD card slot a true SDXC so we can go ahead and make this a truly nice computer,

P.S. Ask me my ideas about batteries. How about battery lasting a week and recharges in 20 minutes.
