Competition for the Microsoft Surface Pro: Acer Aspire P3, Lenovo Yoga 11s and Toshiba WT310

Generation Y

Lenovo also used one of the new Y class processors from Intel, the Core i5-3339Y in this case. While it has a higher number than the standard Ultrabook processors Core i5-3317U or Core i5-3337U, it's actually slower than those, and more energy-efficient. The Yoga 11s comes with a 128 GB Samsung PM830 SSD, a good choice.

The number of connectors is good compared to the two other tablets in this review, but you don't get as many as on a standard laptop. The main thing we're missing is a permanent network port. You have to put an adapter on one of the two USB ports.

Now it looks like your average laptop.

The Lenovo Yoga 11s has both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, a standard SD card reader and a standard HDMI port. The connector for the power supply looks a bit different, as it's more of a rectangular shape.

The Lenovo Yoga 11s drops the ball when it comes to the wireless implementation, with a disappointing USB 2.0 802.11n 150 Mbit 2.4 Ghz adapter. Especially since this is the type of device you will use wirelessly, it's a shame that Lenovo cut corners here.
