Bad news, you guys. The Lenovo Yoga — that crazy, hybrid, folding Windows 8-powered laptop/tablet we were all looking forward to isn’t coming to Australia. At all. Ever.
Lenovo Australia told us today that the Yoga falls under the company’s Idea line-up. That includes everything from the Ideapad right through to the Yoga. The problem with the Idea line is that it doesn’t ever get shipped to Australia. We get stuck with the Think line-up which includes the Thinkpad X1 Carbon I’m currently reviewing.
You can import it, though. There’s nothing stopping you doing that. The 13-inch IdeaPad Yoga is set to run you $US1099 — which, let’s face it is probably cheaper than it ever would have been if it came to Australia — and the 11-inch Windows RT-powered Yoga will be $US799. The smaller of the two goes on sale in December.
We’re still waiting on word from Lenovo Australia about how one would handle service and warranty queries for these imported units.
Sad about the Yoga-less future?
