Lenovo Yoga Plays Hard to Get

yogaHoliday season can be a frenzied time with desires, obligations and talk about winners and losers of the year. With so much clamoring for our attention, things that we really want often slip out of reach.

Despite the business press bashing Best Buy success, or lack there of, my Intel Free Press team did some gumshoe reporting to see if one particular new transformable computer was hot on people’s wishlist.

The Yoga is a full-fledged Ultrabook and tablet in one device

The Lenovo IdeaPad 13 “Yoga,” an Ultrabook that converts into a tablet, was out of stock at several Best Buy stores across the U.S.

“We don’t comment on specific products, but I can tell you that it [the Lenovo Yoga] has been one of our best sellers from a Windows 8 perspective. There’s been a ton of interest. It’s a really cool form factor and product and it’s one you really need to see in person to understand what it can do for you.”

Haydock said they were working to increase inventory in time for the holidays. “We’re doing everything we can in terms of working with Lenovo to increase inventory in stores.”

Anyone else struggling to find a Lenovo Yoga for the holidays?
