The Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid


At the CES event this year, Lenovo certainly didnt hold back at all, they introduced many new devices and one of the more intresting devices is the Lenovo ideapad U1 hybrid. Its an 11.6" laptop with a retractable multitouch screen and it certainly earns its tag as a hybrid, with 2 operating systems and 2 processors for 2 situations. When the screen is locked into its upright position in the laptop's chassis, it's powered by a CULV Intel Core 2 Duo processor and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. But when the screen is pulled from its shell it morphs into a Qualcomm Snapdragon powered-multitouch slate with a 16GB SSD that boots Lenovo's customized Skylight Linux interface. its been pegged for a june 2010 release and is suspected to cost around $1,000 or N150,000.

Looks realy pretty. Dual operating system is added value. Good thinking. I actually want one when it is launched.
