How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Yoga 11S takes what made the Yoga 13 unique and packages it down into a smaller alternative without too many compromises. The Yoga 11S maintains the same design language as the other Yoga laptops, which Ars Technica was happy with, saying "we were fans of the larger version's style, and that style has been retained here." CNET calls Lenovo's attempt at a hybrid tablet "arguably the best." Even though the specs aren't as high as the 13, nor does it have the latest Intel chip, the 11S still performs admirably, with as Trusted Reviews saying that "regular tasks fly by, and boot up times are as snappy." Unfortunately, without the latest Intel processor, battery life isn't as long as it could have been, though Pocket-Lint still calls the battery life "good."
